Curious As a Cat

I adore the internets. And I especially adore sites like The Daily Meme, for days when the head pain just isn't going away, but my sense of humor is still intact. Y'know? Check out the Curious as a Cat meme:

1) Who is the person you know with the best sixth sense?

Unfortunately, I know quite a few Borderline Personalities. It would be fortunately, if I were a little more insensitive, since they'd make great blog fodder. Borderlines have an incredible sixth sense. Almost ESP. Spooky. Email me. I got stories.

As to people I can actually list? Probably my Hunny. He can sniff out any emotion or lie or secret like nobody's business. That's not spooky. It's downright wrong. A wife's supposed to have some secrets, right? Actually, I'm not very good at keeping secrets, and I'd make a lousy poker player. I wear everything on my face.

2) If you could be the sole confessor to anyone on earth and you could never betray their trust, whose confessions would you want to hear?

Not my pastor. Or a sibling. Or even the president. I don't think I like this question. I'm already a confessor to my Hunny and it's enough. I don't think I'd want to carry anyone else's crap. As it is, I make him talk to other people, too, so I'm not carrying everything myself. Confession is good for the soul.

3) What one person most affected the choices you have made in your career?

Believe it or not, and this is a very loose question for me, but my baby brother, Chew, was the most influential in my original career choices, the first choice being teaching, the second being a mother. Chew is eleven years my junior and I taught him to read when he was four. I also changed his diapers and played with him a lot. Wait. That didn't sound quite right. Whatever. He's a major reason I wanted to teach and be a mom.

Hated teaching. Love being a mom. Thanks Chew!


4) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.

Mary Poppins! There's no other thought available for this, right? I mean - it's Dick Van Dyke, the chimney sweep! I adore Mary Poppins, the Disney version. The music! The dancing! What's not to love?!

Play along! Snag this meme for your blog!

Until I write again ...

I thought of Mary Poppins first too. But that's because it's now one of Micah's favorites. I'm not sure how I feel about that. It's a classic and all...

TSannie said...

I'm with you on that whole confession thing. And that HAS to be Dick Van Dyke!

Lori said...

I totally agree on the secrets thing! I remember a few weeks ago showing my hunny some things I bought at the mall. He complimented me and was about to walk off...then he stopped, turned and said, "Is there anything you bought that you DIDN'T show me?" COME ON! How'd he know?
And that picture makes me think of those "How many (fill in blank) does it take to change a light bulb" jokes. Looks like that's what he's doing anyway....
And thanks a lot. Cause now I'm gonna be singing "Chim-chim-i-ny-Chim-chim-i-ny..." all day!

And I thought of the maintenance guys here who come to put new bulbs in our ceiling lights

I love the Dick van Dyke reference. It's totally Burt. Aren't those the roof tops of London?!

Gosh... that is one hard meme. I would have to think a long time about each question.

Oh. Any Mary Poppins the Disney version? Rocks.

My, that's an interesting one. Gonna hafta think about that one! Glad you're better, and hope you banish the head-demons. I'm a huge fan of Excedrin Extra Strength. Three. With a Coke. Magic, I tell ya.

Holey Meme Batman! I agree with the confessor thing. My friend told me an awful secret last week and I am all eaten up inside. Just crushed for her.

Karen said...

Oh.....the unsolicited confessions I have heard in my short 36 years could fill several novels. I am not sure why, but I am beginning to wonder if I have "please tell me your deepest, darkest secret" tatooed on my forehead. Seriously, complete strangers will walk up and tell me things they claim that have never told anyone before, yet I can not get my kids to tell who made the mess in the family room.

I've never heard of this meme before. I need to check out the daily meme.

Funny I have a brother nine years younger and a sister twleve years younger and I remember doing the same things as you....minus the just wrong playing part (he he). They were my dolls only live ones. One reason I became a mom.

Bwahahaha! The confession question is interesting ... because it assumes that whomever you say is actually GOING TO confess to something. Which implies a guilty conscience. But a lot of people that you might want to hear confessions from? Probably don't have a guilty conscious, you know?
