Wednesday Wickedness with Chelsea Clinton

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Wickedness. We are like other memes in that we will ask you ten questions each and every Wednesday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick a famous person and pick ten of their quotes. Each of our questions will be based on the quotes. Got it? Great! Let's begin this week's meme!

Today we picked Chelsea Clinton. Here's Wednesday Wickedness!

1. “I think with our problems with hopelessness and cynicism that [the solution] ultimately has to come from the young people themselves. We've got to realize we are the future and we make of our future what we make of it, and ultimately we have to do it for ourselves.” If you had a wish for your future, what would it be?
I would with to live a challenging, fulfilling, grace-filled charitable life that touches many lives and leaves a legacy of love for my children.

2. “We proved we could be safe and secure at home, and still have more allies and friends in the world.” Tell us about a couple of your closest friends.
--Christie is my best friend. I've known her since we went to tech school together out of high school. She's been my bf since I was 19... so almost 20 years! She's honest, trustworthy, will tell-it-like-it-is and giggles a lot. They made her and then broke the mold. I love her and am glad she's not family -- well, because if she was, I'ms ure I WOULDN'T like her... so since she's my friend, I can! Ha ha! She's "family" without being family. We don't see each other like we used to and although I really, really miss that... I know that if I ever needed her, all I'd have to do is pick up the phone and she'd have my back.

--Gene is my "guy" best friend that I've known since SEVENTH GRADE! He's currently in Iraq serving in the USAF! We've been through marriages, divorces, deaths, all the trials and tribulations of high school and we are still just as close if not closer than before. He's family...

3. “I had seen people who had lost everything and everyone they loved to war, famine, and natural disasters.” What is the most that you have ever lost?
I lost part of myself when I got married the first time. I lost who I was... what I stood for... most of my friends... my independence... my self esteem.... Never again.

4. “We grieve for the loss of life, ... I ask you to redouble your resolve and help your neighbors.” What was the last thing that you have done to help a neighbor?
I make meals for them. I send flowers when they're blue. I place phone calls, drop by or pick up things that I know will brighten their day. I've watched children... I'm pretty neighborly. :)

5. “I think they were interested in it.” What have you done to help someone because of a shared interest?
What haven't I done? I scrapbook... I share e-mail with my friend Christa because sometimes I feel she's my sista-from-anotha-mutha. We are kindred spirits like that and share a crafty spirit!

6. “How we use these surpluses in this moment of prosperity will determine America's future for decades to come. Nothing will more surely determine it than making the right choices…” What do you think the priorities of the United States really should be?
Lower tax burden

Reduce deficit

Impeach the illegally instated President

Secure our borders

Take care of our nation prior to bending over backwards for everyone else.

7. “For all the tornadoes Arkansas has, and the ones that have hit around Little Rock, we never had one just basically come down Main Street.” What was the last severe weather situation that you and your neighbors endured?
Probably just some intense rain. We live in Tornado Alley so we hear the sirens going off at least once or twice a year but -- knock on wood -- nothing has ever come to be from it.

8. “I had seen people who had lost everything and everyone they loved to war, famine, and natural disasters.” Who among the folks you consider family or friends has lost the most?
My parents...because they've lost their parents. However, what people define as their "currency" differs... what I would consider a great loss wouldn't be the same as what another would.

9. “I Do.” If you’ve been married what you’re your thoughts when you said that? Or if not, what would you hope them to be?”
I do... but I better not HAVE to! Ha ha... just kidding

10. "I'm a big health-food freak and a vegetarian devotee." Have you or are you a vegetarian? Thoughts?
Animals are my friends so I must eat them. ROFL Just kidding. Actually, I'm quite all right doing a partly or mostly vegeterian lifestyle. My husband -- NO WAY! I tried to have a meatless meal (veggie burritos one night) and you would have thought that I had told him there was no Santa. Seriously, it was ridiculous.
