Yes, it's that time again--!

Monday, May 31, 2010

Got this from SHAWWB (Brenda). I told her I don't THINK I've done this particular one before. Maybe I should come up with a numbering system or something... but that would be so anal, and take the fun right out of it, wouldn't it? lol... So if I DID do this one before, it might be interesting to see which of my answers has changed!

Well, am I carefree or am I a worrier, more like, 'cause I'm a worrier, fer sher.

Probably looking back, and not in a good way - always in that 'Oh, if only I had THAT to do over again!' or 'If I'd known then what I know now' and so on. To the extent that I work very hard at DELIBERATELY refocussing my thoughts whenever I catch myself looking back.

Well, I don't know where I'd fit in terms of those categories. More like an introverted extrovert. Or an extroverted introvert. Sort of like being a conservative liberal, or a liberal conservative--?

What is your pet peeve?

    Loved getting to know more about you. I LIKE YOU! It was interesting to read that your greatest weakness is perfectionism and the obstacle you would like to overcome is poor health. I'm with you on this. I wonder is somehow the two are connected. Thanks for posting this questionaire. It is a good one I could use to perhaps learn more about myself.

    Hey Kase, I took this from you and Brenda, there's a few dittos on my page from your answers. Remember, copying is the highest form of flattery. I am trying to spend more time in my life and less time sparking, feeling a real conflict. I did really like learning more about you! emoticon

    Hi Kase- what do you know - I too am full of woe! Not surprisingly I too am a Thursday's child. After you have done these a couple of times - I can anticipate the answers about you. I knew about writing a book. You would be a good editor because you write so well. The car choices - so you. I think for the first time I will copy this and do one of these for me. It

    I'm glad to know a bit more about you, Thursday's child. I too have to be careful not to be overcome by the "if only's". I'm learning to live in the present moment. But it's always a challenge. Have a great day, TODAY, Sparkfriend! emoticon

    I think that is the Eygptian flag, if not I am sorry
