Saturday 9

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: Call Me Maybe

1) Do you owe anyone a phone call?  Today, no.  Usually, yes.  If I thought about it, I'm sure there's someone I've said "I'll call you back" to but I don't remember at the present time so they don't count.  I do that a lot, however -- say I'll call back and totally forget.  Don't believe me?  Just ask my mom.  LOL

2) Do you still have a landline phone?  Yes.  We have to have one because our home's alarm system is tied into the telephone.  Plus, I like the safety factor of having a telephone in the event the boys need to call 911.

3) When was the last time you looked up a number in the phone book?  We don't own a phone book.  Haven't in years.  Frankly, I think they're a HUGE waste of trees!

4) Do you receive more calls or texts?  Text.  I think.  

5) Carly Rae made the Final 3 on Canadian Idol. Can you name another cultural import from Canada?  Nickelback.  :)  LURVE them.  

6) Sam grew sick of this song by hearing it too often on the radio. Where do you listen to the radio most often? Car? Work? Somewhere else?  I listen to Satellite radio because of the fact that I hate huge conglomerates owning the airwaves and dictating playlists.  

7) Mother Winters can work wonders with an iron and a can of spray starch. Every blouse and shirt she presses looks good as new. Is there a domestic chore you excel at?  Cooking.  I kick ass.  Just call me Betty Freakin Crocker!

8) Do you consider yourself competitive?  It depends on if it's something I give two shits about.  If it's something I truly consider worthy of my time... sure.  If I were to pick up a ping pong paddle and play a game... I don't really care if I win or lose as long as I have fun... but I would WANT to kick someone's ass at it, sure!  Do I care if I lose at THAT?  Notsomuch.  So, as long as it's not ping pong.. then yes... I want to kick your ass at everything I can... not because I want to make you feel badly, but because I just have to win...and be right... and be better... and yea, to make you cry like a little bitch... so yeah. Maybe I am.  Shut up.

9) Tell us your superhero name -- as determined by the color of your shirt and an item to your right. For example, Crazy Sam now fights crime as The Light Blue Coffee Mug!  The Black Moose  (Moose is the name of our Rot)

Your answers to #8 and #9 cracked me up. I like thinking of The Black Moose wandering the countryside, making every bad guy she meets "cry like a little bitch."

911 is another good reason to hang on to my landline. Hadn't thought of that, but you're right.

I don't understand why they keep delivering phone books. They just go right into the recycling bin.

Good answers. I agree about telephone books. They are a waste of trees.

I agree 100% with your view on phone books. Apparently this feeling doesn't extend to the area where I live. I swear there are at least four phonebook companies that leave a book at my doorstep.
I love your Rott.

Happy Saturday!

I agree with the phone books being a waste. If people still use then fine, but dumping them on everyone's doorstep is ridiculous.
Love your superhero name and your dog is beautiful!

Have a great rest of your Saturday!
