Monday-1:30pm

I guess I had written that I don't do awards but had neglected to also include tags--LOL!  (I have now added tags to my comment note.)  But since that was my oversight, I shall respond--somewhat, anyways.  ;)  I'm not going to do the whole tag from In My Mind It's Always Funny, but I'll answer the questions she posed, just because she is a hoot and a nice lady.  ;)
****
1. Why did your parents choose your name? Does it mean something?  I like to believe I was named after the actress Rita Hayworth, but my mother always said I named myself.

2. Do you believe in ghosts? Why or why not.  Yes.  Why not?


3. Do you think any president will be able to fix our economy? Do you feel like things are better or worse with the current president.  I don't discuss politics.  Gives me a headache.


4. Favorite time of year. Why?  Fall!!  Not sure.  Has always been the time of year that I find the most exhilarating.  
The cool, crisp air; the colorful, crunchy leaves; the hint of far away snow in the air...and knowing Thanksgiving and Christmas are around the corner.  Ahhh!  Plus is such a relief from the hot, humid summer--my most unfavorite time of year.  

5. Favorite item of clothing, past or present.  I don't get very attached to clothing.  But I am sentimentally attached to a denim shoulder tote bag I made and embroidered that I used as a diaper bag when my son was a baby.  Does that count?


6. Name the strangest pet you ever had.  Would have to be either the iguana...or the skunk...or maybe the axylotyls...or the baby snapping turtle...or maybe the skink...or the rat...or the rescued toads......


7. If you could take a week off and travel anywhere with money and time away not an issue, where would you go and why?  Well, if health wasn't an issue, either, I'd go visit friends and family.  :)


8. Do you miss a time when we didn't have cell phones are you happy for the latest inventions?  I have learned to LOVE cell phones, lap tops, digital cameras, recording TV shows on a computer...all of it!  No way!  I wouldn't want to go back.  I may be slow to jump on board and Dagan and Leah have had to push me a little, but I have become a convert.  The new technology is kind of like my brain--I only know how to use about a tenth of it--but I would be lost without it.  ;) 


9. What is the one thing you dread more than any other thing? Be honest.  To be perfectly honest--having to leave home for appointments (due to IBS and pain issues).

 
10. Are you high maintenance? Hair, nails, clothing, looking perfect, massages, etc. If so, do you do it to make yourself look better or to FEEL better.  I've always been a low maintenance girl who's slowly become bare minimal maintenance and doesn't even wear makeup anymore when I leave the house or curl my hair.  Clean and combed is good enough.


11. Insert random thought about me here. I am out of questions.  Sorry I didn't post that I don't do tags, but I hope this will suffice.  ;)


****
This is quick today.  It doesn't look like, with the cut and past questions, this is going to work with the font larger.  I will try to post normal size print and see what happens.  I hope it's readable.
byebye!  :)

  10. Good answers, for being reluctant. :-) The awards/tags are time-consuming. I'm with you, low maintenance. I hate the time that taking a shower takes!

  11. It was fun learning these things about you, Rita. Some I knew already but some I didn't. :-)

  12. Pain doesn't stop your sense of humour, does it?
    Good for you, Rita.

  13. Nice to read more about your Rita.

    You know I only just found out that axolotls are the immature forms of salamanders, and most here in Australia never get to that stage.

  20. Sorry to read about the spam mail you are getting. Is that in BLogger? I guess I've never seen it. I can't understand since you moderate your messages, something I have never done. But I hope you were able to connect to the Doodles class.

    I love your strange pets you have rescued over the years. I rescued a turtle once. He lived at my place for years before he decided to move on.

    I had to laugh. I don't even own a comb anymore. Haven't for about 15 years. I keep my curly hair very short, so all I need are my fingers to comb it. Guess I'm even more low maintenance than YOU (grin).

  21. I don't do tags, memes or the award obligations either though I do still enjoy seeing what others have to say. You did a good job of it, Rita. You make folks smile.. and that's such a good thing.

  22. Loved reading your answers I like your answer to question 8, I do not know how we managed way back when.....lol

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well, I'm glad that you did this set of questions, as it's always nice to learn more about people! I loved your list of pets (my most interesting pets were the goats that showed up in my front yard--lots of goaty adventures ensued!)

    I'm with you about fall. Always been my favorite season.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've never been high maintenance. As long as my hair is combed and my clothes are clean when I leave the house, that's good enough for me!

  25. Tags can be time consuming, but it's a great way to get to know someone. Glad you answered the questions. It was fun getting to know you:)

  26. Love Rita Hayworth. I want to watch a movie I watched several times as a child to see if I'll still enjoy it. She was a goddess who came down to earth. Don't even remember what the movie was called! Patsy from

Just a note: I don't pass on awards or do tags, and I no longer comment on blogs that have word verification (see top right hand corner of my blog). So if you haven't heard from me that's probably why. Sorry.

I read and appreciate each and every comment, but it became too overwhelming to personally respond to each one like I used to here in the blog comment section. I will answer questions and communicate via email, though, if you have an email address listed on blogger and I do try to respond to every comment.

Have a really great day! Karma says hi! :) :)
