Saturday 9 - Over the Rainbow

It's time again for...

...drumroll please... 

The Saturday 9.  This weeks' topic:  Over The Rainbow

1) Do you ever fantasize about flying, beyond the rainbow or anywhere else? Absolutely.  I think having dreams of going to far away places... it gives you goals... it can relax you... it can motivate you... it could even inspire you... make you creative.

2) Do you think you have seen The Wizard of Oz more than 10 times? Absolutely!  I lived to watch that show every single year when it came on television as a child.  It was an event!  I grew up in a time when they actually advertised shows that the only way you COULD see them would be to watch them the very date they were aired.  It was a truly special family time, too.  I remember a few years having my best friend, Shannon Fry, at the house and we'd watch it together.  Good times.... Good times.

3) Which Wizard of Oz character would you most like to dress as for Halloween?  I think the evil witch would be more suited to me so long as I didn't have to mimic that voice.  It really makes me want to kick puppies.  I do have a thing for pony tails so Dorothy would obviously be fun.  Plus, having a cool pair of sparkly Mary Janes would be fun.  Glenda the Good Witch ... meh... so not my style.  Lion -- too hairy.  Tin Man -- too stupid.  Scarecrow -- too itchy.  Toto -- too black.  Munchkins -- too munchkin-ey.  

 4) What will Trick or Treaters get when they come to your front door? Right now, nothing.  I'll have to hit up the grocery store on Wednesday I suppose.  I generally do a mix of chocolate and   sticky, chewy, bad-for-your-teeth stuff.  I know it's safer to buy the things that you, yourself, won't consume just in an effort to keep you out of the candy.  I just find it's easier TO not buy any candy ahead of time.  That way, there's no will power involved.

5) Did you ever TP a neighbor's house or indulge in other acts of Halloween vandalism as a kid? (Don't worry, that statute of limitations is up.) Nope.  My mom was a cop.  I'm not an idiot.

6) Who annoys you more -- people who never respond to your texts/emails, or those who never look up because they're always checking their texts/emails? Ooooh, that's a good one.  Well, the hubs is in the first category and the son is in the second.  I'll say, I'm equally annoyed.  

7) Who was the last person you hugged? Benji... and this was after he punched me in the nose as I went to give him a goodnight kiss.  He's SO pleasant.  

8) What two colors do you like to wear together? White with either black or brown.

9) Did your alarm clock wake you up this fine Saturday morning?  Nope.  5am up on my own.

I understand how you feel with a mom that was a cop. No way TPing then. My dad owned an alarm business so he close with all the cops.

Have a great weekend

I wait until the last minute and generally buy candy I am not so fond of.
