Here’s a meme I got from over at Karen’s:
1. Do you have certain times of the day when you have to have things done? Does your day run on a timetable? Or are you more of a laissez-faire kind of person?
I used to have a timetable. But then again, that was when I was part of the working world. Now, I’m much more laissez-faire as there really isn’t enough to fill the hours of the day for me. The bits of schedule that I have are to make sure Dude is up by 7:30 am, out the door to the bus by 8:10 am, that I meet the bus by 3:30 pm, dinner served around 6:30 pm and then Dude to bed by 8:30 pm. Nothing fancy. Somewhere in there I have a horse stall to clean, dogs to feed twice and whatever else I can find to fill my days.
2. What one word describes you on a good day? What about on a bad day? What one word would your best friend use to describe you? What one word would your significant other use to describe you?
I tried asking CP, but he just chuckled and said I was cheating by asking him. So, I guess I will have to dream up his answer.
As for a good day, I’d hope I could be described as “Happy”. I’d settle for happy as I do have days where I feel that way. On a bad day? Just one word? Wow. Not sure just one word fits me on a bad day. How about a phrase? I’m sure The Marine calls me, “That Effing Bitch”. Come to think of it, Disney Princess may call me that in her head too. The kids would describe me as “Mean”. So, I guess on a bad day I pick “Bitch”.
My best friend would probably pick “Sunshine” for her one word description. Actually, my former truck drivers would too as they gave me that nickname.
Now, back to CP… We’ve only been together 22 months. I haven’t a real clue, just a guess. We’re still figuring each other out and still smoothing out the bumps in the road. I really think most days he’d pick “Sad” as his way to describe me. I wish I had a happier answer to put here. Now, let me clarify here. I am happiest when I’m working. I don’t make a very good housewife. Since we’ve been together, we’ve walked a hard road full of poo that makes it difficult for me to work outside the home at this moment.
3. Your blog is being made into a television show. What kind of show will it be? Sit-com? Drama? How long is it? Hour? Half-hour? Sunday night movie? And most importantly, who are your show’s sponsors?
I’d hope that my blog will develop enough to be a humorous Educational Documentary if it were made into a television show. I’d really like to be able to impart some new knowledge associated with responsible pet care. Really, on tv I’d pick a half hour fun, fact filled show that taught people about animal behavior, basic pet care and how to make your life and your pets a little better. As for sponsors, I’d love to have Ariat (because they make the most comfortable riding boots in the world!), Animal Planet (duh!), Innova (because I love their dog foods), Dogwise.com (I think I’ve spent enough money on books from them that they should be showing me some love), LMF Feeds (I love their products), and Absorbine (because I’ve used Absorbine for years). Hey, anybody really want to give me my own television show?
4. What is your favorite perfume or cologne? How often do you wear perfume or cologne? Has anyone ever told you smelled good/bad? If so, how did that make you feel? Flattered? Self-conscious? Uncomfortable?
My signature scent is called “Dark Goddess” and was purchased in a little shop in Soldotna, Alaska called Scentsations. Dark Goddess has a rich, smouldery, earthy smell. It’s been described as sex appeal in a bottle. I used to wear it every day as it always raised my self-confidence. It was powerful and heady. But when you work for a trucking company, something is bound to get quirky. I quit wearing it at work because I ended up with a driver who turned stalker-type on me. He said he followed me around because he loved the scent I was wearing. Can you say creepy?
When I moved to Oregon, I would on occasion wear Dark Goddess now and again. But, as I am simply home all day, every day, I didn’t see a point in wearing perfume. This meme leaves me missing the deliciously sinful scent.
Flash forward almost two years and I have hardly wore Dark Goddess. The half ounce I purchased years ago in Soldotna is the last of it’s kind. The secret blend of oils made in Alaska no longer exist. Neither does Scentsations. For that, I am sad. Someday the bit of Dark Goddess I have left will be gone and I’ll have to find a new signature scent to wear.
