Five, Six, and Seven

Not playing the game. Here are the questions from Robins Five, Saturday Six, Sunday Seven. And I am cheating. I am using the questions but I am not posting a link in their journals. It is just because I am "caching up". I like the games and I like the relationships that "linking" brings. Next time, I will.

Sunday Seven
Name the top seven stores where you are most likely to do the majority of your Christmas shopping this year. If you can't name seven, name as many up to seven as you can. You can also include online retailers, too
My answers:

Wal-Mart. -- I have been urged to boycott Wal-Mart because of their unfair labor practices. I am pro-labor, and yet, they have so much merchandise, and it is convenient.

Long;s Drug store. -- Talk about convenience, it is scooterable. I can cruise up and down aisles and they are packed with great gifts.

Target -- I am always in awe at Target. They have things that I didn't even know were invented yet.

Barnes and Noble -- Books are easy gifts, and shopping there is like a trip to the library. You spend more time browsing than buying, and you buy more stuff for yourself than you do for gifts.

OSH hardware -- For Christmas lights and tools.

Staples -- If I owned a store, I would want it to be a stationery store. They fascinate me and fill me with ideas of projects I could create. Staples is closer than Office Max.

Robin's Friday Five !
1.
What is the one thing on your Thanksgiving table that you will NOT eat? Anything on the table is okay with me, though I prefer some things to others. I'd rather have pumpkin pie than the traditional pecan. At the old folks home, turkey is a stapleƂ¦ we have a lot of it on ordinary days, so when feast days come, turkey looks pretty tired and If ham or beef is available I will choose that instead.


2.
Did you ever play in a pile of leaves as a kid? Yes, sure did. Would rather play in them than rake them


3.
When you think of Fall what are the three things that come to mind? Back to school, Halloween, Thanksgiving.

4.
When was the last time you had pumpkin pie? Was it last year or have you already had some this year? Have it regularly, and this year we had pumpkin cheesecake, with chocolate crust. Wow

5.
Tell us something really nice about the last person you read an email from.. Just had a nice email from Michael, the "madman with ADD, Adult Attention Deficit Disorder." He writes so clearly and succinctly, you cannot believe it is a struggle for him to concentrate. What is so great is that he has learned to cope with the distractions, forces himself to focus, is earning a PhD and is a professor. He takes time to write a journal, study himself and his disorder, and yet had time to write to me. I am impressed.

Saturday Six - Episode 84
1.
What was the last movie you watched at a theater completely alone? Would you have enjoyed it more or less if you had gone with someone to see it? It was Wallace and Grommet in the Great Wererwolf Hunt. I would rather have had someone with me to enjoy the jokes and the clever satire.

2.
What was the last non-sexual thing you did around the house completely naked? Took a nap sprawled on top of bed, then showered, and still bare, went to computer and played games, wrote in my journal and read others. Finally had to dress to go to supper.

3.
How well do you know your neighbors? Would you like to know them better or not know them? Living in old folks home, I have lots of neighbors and know them all well. Sometimes we are too close.

4.
Take the conspiracy quiz: How much of a conspiracy nut are you? Took the quiz and it said I trusted everybody and believed everything people tell me..

5.
Of the "conspiracies" mentioned in that quiz, which single one would you most like the "truth" about and why? Since I don't believe there are any big conspiracies, I don't need to delve into any.

6.
If you had to create a slogan that defined your life, what would it be? "The Creative Person is pretty sloppy: Ever see an artist's palette?" Trouble is, that slogan wouldn't help me organize my life, but would only encourage me to further disorder.

Glad to see you back in full force--and in fine fettle.  Only 28 teeth?  Seems like I've lost 56.  I hate dentists!

Oops!  Misplaced that comment.  It should have been on the entry before this one.

I borrowed your list, since you did it so nicely.  I'll come back later and give you the link to my answers.  :-)

I never realized pecan pie was "traditional".  We ALWAYS had pumpkin.  I find that really interesting.

OH PLEEZE, OH PLEEZE think long and hard before shopping at WM...go anywhere else and buy stuff for just slightly more!  It is more than just labor practices.  See the movie Wal-Mart, The High Cost of Low Prices.
