1. What is something that bothers you if it's not done perfectly?
Not many things bother me. I'm kind of a laid-back person. I would say that I have a high standard for services that cost a lot of money. Right now, we are having the exterior of our house in Idaho painted. Since it is a rather expensive endeavor, I will expect that the work be of good quality and hopefully last many years.
2. Do you think a 6th sense exists? Explain.
I had to look up a definition. Because my brain is rather mushy and filled with the story of Squirrel Nutkin, which I do not wish on anyone.
The definition I found was:
noun; A power of perception seemingly independent of the five senses; keen intuition.
In the case of that definition, I will say yes.
I think it goes along well with the Biblical principle of discernment, which includes wisdom and good judgement.
Psalm 119:25I am your servant; give me discernment
that I may understand your statutes.
3. Do you say your goodbyes slowly, quickly, or not at all?
Well this is a timely question.
We are currently in the midst of a painfully slow goodbye as we get ready to send Josh off for 6 months. Making all of the preparations is a constant reminder that the day is fast approaching.
Here he is making a video of himself reading the kids' favorite books, and singing their bedtime songs.
So while I prefer a quick or not-at-all goodbye, sometimes the choice is not mine.
4. On a scale of 1-10, with ten being hot hot hot, what level of spice do you like in your food? What's your favorite 'spicy' dish?
I'm about a 7. I really do enjoy spicy foods, but I can't have it so spicy that it numbs my taste buds.
Because then what is the point in eating? It's not as if I eat because I'm hungry.
That would be silly.
I eat for pleasure.
Oh, and sushi without wasabi is not sushi at all.
5. What is one of your all time favorite commercial jingles?
It's got to be the Quizno's Subs rats.
Do you remember them? They made no sense at all, but they always made me laugh. Who would think of having a really, really, really creepy looking rat as your spokes
Kudos to you, Quizno's. It was certainly memorable.
They got a pepper bar!
6. Plane, train, boat or auto...your preferred method of travel?
I don't like any method of travel.
Air travel makes me nervous. You are totally at the mercy of the airline: overbooking, cancellations, being seated next to stinky people, etc.
I used to enjoy the occasional car trip.
Then I had children.
I'm thinking a relocation cruise is probably the way to go. That way you can dine your way to your next destination.
7. What is something you take for granted?
Two things popped to my mind.
1-- Our freedom to worship & access to the Bible. In other areas of the world, Christians risk their lives to meet together and read the word. My greatest challenge is to stop playing Words with Friends so that I make some time to read it.
2-- That my kids will be little for a long, long time.
I'm afraid they wont.
They are growing too fast.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Hurricane Irene is supposed to hit the NC coast this weekend.
Our heroes in green (aka my husband and others like him) will be hurrevac-ing. This is when they take their most valuable assets and get them to an inland location.
That is a nice way of saying:
Leave the wives and kids behind-- Get those jets to safety!
