Saturday Nine

Settling the Score

Welcome to Saturday: 9 . What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

1. Do you feel that you have “a score to settle” with anyone?
  • Yes, as a matter of fact I do have a score to settle. But it is just not worth it.

2. Do you own anything that you think is unbreakable?

  • I do not believe that anything is "unbreakable"

3. Tell us about a crazy thing you did in high school.

  • One night while my mom was sleeping my brother and I snuck out of the house. We pushed his car to the corner so that she would not hear it start. Then we went out and necked with our boyfriend/girlfriend until 3 a.m. While driving home I said, "What if we pull up and all the lights are on?" My brother said we would just keep on driving. Well, we pulled up. All the lights were on. He did not keep driving. I had never seen my mom as mad as she was. She was so mad that she did not speak to me. She handed me a letter. In the letter it said that I was grounded for one month from everything and that she would be taking me to and from school. Ack..................what happened to my brother, you ask? Nothing!!!!!!! When I asked why....."Boys don't get pregnant" was the answer. What????? I wanted to ask her who she thought got the girls pregnant but she was too mad...I served every moment of being grounded.

4. Name the one talent of yours that you think is the best.

  • My best talent is growing things. I love houseplants and to garden. I have 3 African violets that are more than 15 years old and a fig tree in the living room that is 20 years old. Some of my annuals come back every year and they are only supposed to last one year. I have an awesome green thumb.

5. Who wins American Idol? (if you don’t watch, tell us about a reality show that you do follow.)

  • I don't watch American Idol. I do watch Survivor....and right now I want Taj to win.

6. What is your favorite movie in black & white?

  • I have no favorite movies in black and white. I do not watch movies.

7. What is one thing advertised too much on TV?

  • Viagra! give it a rest................LOL (that was funny)

8. What is your current favorite TV drama?

  • I have a few....CSI Miami, CSI Las Vegas and the Unit

9. What is your current favorite TV comedy?

  • Two and a Half Men


  1. OMG--the Viagara- aaahhhh!
    On TV and in the spam mail.

  2. man I can relate to how you got in trouble I totally got in trouble one night at age 16 when my mom could not find me and a bar in town burned down Did she think I was in there? No telling

  3. I wish that I had a green thumb. I either over water or under water plants :-(

  4. I am so envious of your green thumb! Everything I try to grow dies :(

  5. Grounded, never spent a minute grouded. But then it wasn't this brother
    Now go wash your hands

  6. I think it's time to call it "2 and 3/4 Men"! Your mom was unbelieveable on that one. Happy Saturday...

  7. Two and a half men is a fav too!

    Too funny on the Viagra.

  8. The Unit- great show!

    LOL @ Viagra! Have a great Saturday!

  9. that was unfair. you were grounded while your brother got away unscathed. hehehe. loved reading your answers!

  10. Wish I could grow plants (every time I've ever tried it, they died). Didn't realise that Viagra got advertised on TV over there, since it never gets advertised here (except via Spam emails).

  11. # 3 could really sound crazy at a very young age. But when we experienced motherhood to teenagers then we will understand the madness our mom went through.

    Great answers!

  12. This was really interesting. I loved reading it.


I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
