Inspired by fb

Saturday, June 10, 2006

I haven't felt like talking about my life that much lately. Odd, because usually I can't get enough of myself.

I have been busy being crafty. One of these days I will show you the photos of my craftiness. I have been preparing for the babe's first birthday and spending a lot of time with the family, since we all had the week off.

So I have posts in the works that will have photos and interesting things. In the meantime, I was inspired by fb's recent post and wanted to answer his questions for you all to ponder....

1. There has to be more to life than work...isn't there?
YES! Work to live not live to work.

2. Or does work give us the means to live and find ourselves?
Well, yes this is partially true. The means to live is important, but I haven't found myself as a result of financial security. In fact, I believe that I found myself at a very young age. Seven. Remember yourself as a child and this is the way to finding your true self. Or so I think...

3. How does one find meaning to one's life?
Loving what you do and finding those you love to share this with. Making a difference for someone. I am a huge advocate of volunteering and community service. I find ways to make a difference by being involved in meaningful projects.

4. What is your reason for being?
Teaching. On all levels and for everyone around me. Sometimes obvious and sometimes subtle.

5. The Rules of Attraction, what is that elusive quality that brings two people together...
I have no idea. Luck?...

6. What makes things click and brings about kisses and maybe more?
Ditto #5.

7. How can I increase my chances of being a desireable person and not on a 'just friends' basis?
Expand your circle of friends and acquaintances.

8. Just how will England do in the World Cup?
I think badly, unfortunately.

9. Can Japan beat Australia?
Really, I haven't the faintest idea, but I will guess yes.

10. Just who will finish as Runners up in Group F?
Who's in Group F?

11. Where's my driving license got to?
When's the last time you had to use it? Trace you steps backwards from there. Otherwise, check the sock drawer.

12. What has happened to the replacement copy of a book that I ordered online?
Perhaps it was accidentally sent to Australia. It can take a good three months for things to turn up there.

13. Which OST CD of 'Elizabethtown' is better, Volume 1 or Volume 2?
I haven't seen either.

14. Why am I asking so many questions?
Why not?

15. Where are you going for the summer?
Not far...perhaps Quebec.

16. What was the last time you ate out?
Last Monday.

17. What did you order?
Chicken and a salad.

18. People say they could spend the rest of their lives 'here' meaning Jamaica, Barbados etcetra but could you?
No, the heat would eventually become boring. I need seasons.

19. What do you wish you were 'more' of? e.g. more determined, more popular etc
More relaxed.

20. When did you last have a good laugh?
Two weeks ago, while I was away in Thunder Bay. One of my very dear friends was also there and we laughed our heads off. The stares we were given by annoyed colleagues made us laugh even harder. I would tell you one of the stories that made us laugh so hard, but I fear that it would lose some of it's comedy in the re-telling. Andf then it would end up being an "I guess you had to be there" moment.

O.K., fb. I just ate an entire box of crackers, while working away on your list. Yes, seriously! I fear that none of this is of any use to you and now I've likely gained a pound or two...
Stay well, friends.

    It's good to know I'm not the only one who eats aimlessly while fiddling away on the computer!

    By they way, you're such a lovely person, Cathy. I hope you appreciate you.

    Definitly need the seasons. I think my parents are going to take a long route through Thunderbay on their way to Calg. for my cousins wedding.

    Interesting answers...

    I think that for some people, what they do in a job does define them as a person, partly because they want them to, and partly because they always work. Working for them is living, so to speak.

    Whatever I do with my life, in terms of a career, it is my goal not to become ruled by my job.

    i am eating chocolate for
    breakfast while reading your post-
    what book did you order online?
    I laugh with my friends when
    we take the fart machine out with
    us which tells you how
    immature i am.

  1. Blogger Tee/Tracy said:

    LOL - Good to have a friend with so many questions for inspiration!

    Good luck to England. USA is not doing well at all. We just lost 3-0 today against Czech Republic. Crazy :p

    Baby's 1st bday is coming up! So exciting! Any plans? A little theme party? ... Don't put TOO much work into it. It almost always happens that baby will be very cranky the day of his birthday and not appreciate a single thing. LOL. ;)

  1. Blogger fb said:

    I'm surprised people took time to read and answer the questions!

  1. Blogger Devil Mood said:

    Good! I thought those questions needed some pondering, so I'm glad you answered them as well...

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    I like your answers! I especially like the literal ones like where the book and driving license have gone. If the book has gone to Australia, someone MUST go to look for it :)

    Oh, & good questions, fb! Wise sages
