Monday Madness! It's only Tuesday!!!! Why am I yelling?

This week's questions came off the top of Otto's head; I will enjoy!

1. Do you do dishes by hand or do you use a dishwasher? I do dishes in the dishwasher; I love that thing. But.......................... I also wash some by hand; there are some things that I need sooner than in a couple of days when I will run the machine, ya know?

2. How many people have your cell phone number? Oh..................... I don't feel like counting; I don't know - all family and all clients have my cell number because it is MINE.

3. Do you shower in the morning or at night? I shower in the morn', at night, and sometimes midday; I have also been known to skip a day here or there. eeeewwwwwwwwww! I don't stink ever since I started using Crystal.

4. Do you ever have a song 'stuck' in your head? Sometimes, but mostly I'm stuck with my thoughts and whew my thoughts exhaust me sometimes.

5. Do you pay your bills when they arrive, or do you wait until closer to the due date to pay them? I have to pay when they arrive; I have been charged a late fee on a credit card before, but have never ended up paying. It just takes a call and if it didn't happen in the past 6 months or so, they waive it. That has happened to me probably about once or twice a year for four years. My point is, you can get out of it, but it's better to pay when the bill arrives in order to avoid the hassle.

6. Are you obsessive about anything in particular? I have a few obsessions; this would be better answered by the one who lives with me.

7. What one thing would you say you have a zero tolerance for? Ideally, I wouldn't have "zero" tolerance for anything because that just wears you out; something that really bugs me a lot though is that the kids around here literally scream as their main form of communication.

Monday Madness presented by Me!

1. Would you shave your head for any amount of money? Yes I would! I've been curious for sometime now what my head would look like; I'd consider doing it for $5,000 or more of course.

2. What "whacky" thing might you do for a large sum of money? I would shave my head or possibly eat something that many would consider to be gross - maybe.

3. What do you think is a "large sum of money?" One Million dollars is definitely a large sum of money, but I may accept less.

4. Do you watch "reality" tv shows? Yes I do watch reality shows.

5. If so, which do you watch and in what order do you prefer them? I watch Survivor, The Amazing Race, I just watched a rockstar one this season and embarrassing as it is to admit, I am also watching Big Brother.

6. Which reality show have you thought about participating in? Why? I thought about participating in Survivor, but I need to eat, so I probably wouldn't do well. I also have thought about participating in Big Brother because they actually get paid for each week; therefore i'd have nothing to lose. S and I have also thought about going on Amazing Race, but I'm afraid she would get frustrated with me too much - I'd be a good begger though if we had our money taken away. The main reason I would like to go on one of these shows is to see if I would act as I think I would. It's so easy to be the spectator.

7. Share one thing you would like to do in life but have not yet done..... The truth is that I've already done a few things that I had really never even dreamed of before; thanks to Susan. The main one being sky diving (tandem) I also went on a mule ride along the edge of steep cliffs which I will soon be doing again. My point is that it's hard to think of something big here, so going along with the theme of these questions, my answer is be on and win a reality tv game/show.

Monday !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! is it Mad?????????????????????

1. How many "people" pictures do you have displayed in your house? There is one people pic on the wall, and a few others waiting for a home. i'm not really fond of putting people pics up on walls.

2. How many times a month/year do you rearrange your furniture? I have rearranged furniture probably 6 times in 3 years - the focus changes (not always the same rooms). Now, it will stay because we found the best fit (I think.)

3. Do you check your email every day? Generally speaking, I check my email once a day.

4. How often do you generally look at a clock/watch on any given day? In general, I probably look at a clock about 4 times a day. Specifically during a massage, I glance at the clock every 15-20 minutes to keep track of time; thereby not neglecting any part of the client's body.

5. How do you handle telemarketer phone calls? If more than 3 seconds pass, before the calling party says anthing, I hang up because it's probably a recording. If a person actually says something, and asks for Mr. or Mrs., I hang up because they obviously don't know us. If a human asks for S, I ask to take a message, they say there is no message, I know they are not a friend and hang up. If they ask for me, I listen a bit, say no thank-you and hang up.

The End

Monday Madness on Thursday?

1. Are you working on any big projects around your house right now? No, but we have thought about it off and on. A couple neighbors did some pretty cool things with their places; although I like the outcome, I don't envy the time and money put into it. With the costs of these places so high out here, I think it would be hard to recover the cost of improvements upon selling. If we planned on living here forever, we would do some work.

2. How do you generally pay for merchandise at your local store? I generally use a credit card with which we get miles for future travels. It pays off.

3. Which month of the year seems to go by the fastest? I don't really think like that and I'd rather not. Life is good. Enjoy each moment! Live it - don't just say it!

4. Have you taken up any new hobbies lately? No I haven't; what I need to do is get moving on my photos. I finally have a plan.

(I skipped a few - Otto, i might have some question suggestions for you again.)
