1. July is National Anti-Boredom Month. When was the last time you were bored? What's your go-to cure for boredom?
I found myself walking around the house alone last Sunday afternoon. Hubs was working. Dinner was planned and prepped as much as I could prep. I finished the book I was reading earlier in the day. I tried to write, but my muse must have taken the day off. So, I grabbed my camera, loaded Fergus in the car, and went for a ramble.
2. What's the last thing you made a reservation for?
That would probably have been dinner reservations when I still lived in Texas. I live in middle-of-nowhere Illinois. Diners don't take reservations. On second thought, probably hotel reservations.
3. What's one thing on your summer 'bucket list'? Any plans to make it happen?
I want to go to Hannibal, Missouri. I will need to have about 2 days off during the week so Hubs can go, too. He rarely gets a day off on the weekend. It will need to be spur of the moment. We can't really plan until Hubs gets his schedule. He rarely ever gets the same days off during the week. If that doesn't work out, I will take myself down to see my son.
4. What's your favorite summertime sip?
Iced Green Tea with lemon. No sugar.
5. What do you find is the best way to handle another person's hostility and hopefully ease the tension?
I practice avoidance. I don't have time for those kind of people.
6. Your favorite film set in summer?
Now this answer will age me, as if you haven't already figured out I'm older than dirt. A Summer Place with the dreamy Troy Donahue and Sandra Dee. Two of my favorite actors when I was a young 'un. Besides, I was madly in love with Troy. It was a risqué movie back then, which added to its appeal.
7. What word are you using too much lately?
Funny. When co-workers tell me a 'funny' story, I always laugh and then say, "That's funny." I'm tired of hearing 'funny' come out of my mouth, but can't seem to stop myself before it plops out.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
A man came in the office last week looking for the Assessor's office. Once upon a time it was in the courthouse, but now it is in the annex building. The girl at the desk told him the annex building was 'kitty-cornered' across the street, which sounded correct to me, but obviously not to the man. He asked, "How do you spell that?" The girl didn't know, so he picked on me and the other girl in the office. We had no idea. He says, "It is spelled
c-a-t-e-r-c-o-r-n-e-r-e-d." I didn't dispute his obvious knowledge, but as soon as he left, I pulled up Google to prove to myself kitty-cornered was proper. What did I find out? I was wrong and he was correct. Did you know there is a Gunsmoke episode titled, Kitty Cornered?
