It’s Monday and time for a meme again! I got this from over at Karen’s. Won’t you play too?
1. It’s the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature is stirring … except you, you can’t sleep, and it’s 3:00 o’clock in the morning. What do you do?
I’ve never experienced this except as a kid. As a kid, I snuck out of bed only to find my dad asleep in his chair, half way done stuffing my brother’s stocking. Needless to say, I figured out who Santa was that year. To avoid getting in trouble, I just snuck back to bed and eventually fell asleep.
Now, I’d probably wake up my husband, the Corporate Prince, and talk or at least let him know I couldn’t sleep and why I was going downstairs to the couch. If I went out to the couch (then kids can’t sneak!), I’d probably quietly watch tv until I finally fell asleep.
2. What is the one attribute that you have that your significant other struggles with? Why do you think he/she struggles with it? Now tell us one attribute that your significant other has that you wish you possessed.
CP and I have very different styles of communication. I think he struggles with understanding me and fully grasping that I mean what I say and I say what I mean. In that way, I’m very different than most people in his experience. I think I’m pretty simple, but I find other people with different communication styles to be frustrating myself.
CP has charm and wit and is capable of playing the inner political games that happen in most work atmospheres. I don’t have a grasp of that and I find inner politics to be difficult for me. Also, he’s light years smarter than me.
3. What advice do you have for your next door neighbor? (This would be a good time to air your grievances – or – praise something about your neighbor). Begin with: Dear Neighbor, There is something I’d like to tell you …
I really hate it when you decide to run up and down our little street with your toys. Your snowmachine and four wheeler are loud and obnoxious and really disturb the peace and enjoyment of our neighborhood. More, no one is impressed. And it’s still illegal to be running those toys on public streets. There is an appropriate time and place for your toys. Let’s really focus on the time. Late at night and early in the morning is not that time. Nor is this the place, ever. Please show more respect for our neighborhood by not disturbing the peace of everyone else here.
4. If you could live yesterday all over again, what would you do anything differently?
Umm… no? I don’t think so. Yesterday was pretty good. I baked myself silly!
|You Are Biscotti|
|You are a very direct, honest person.
You don’t have time for dramatics or emotional pleas.
You feel most comfortable in the intellectual realm, especially with science and technology.
