Quote from a movie: You know, the ancient Egyptians had a beautiful belief about death.
When their souls got to the entrance to heaven,
the guards asked two questions.
Their answers determined whether they were able to enter or not.
‘Have you found joy in your life?’
'Has your life brought joy to others?’

-The Bucket List
Right or left: Right, mostly
Shopping: Clothes, plants, and the dreaded grocery shopping. ugh
TV show: Hate regular tv. I only watch Bears, Cubs and Bulls and some college volleyball.
Underwear: The last time I purchased them too big. nothing worse.

What makes you late: over sleeping and trying to find something to wear. Nobody believes me. I have nothing to wear!!!
X-ray: revealed a very crooked back!
Yummy food I make: oh gosh, when I take the time to cook, I am generally pretty successful. 
Zoo animal: Brings out sympathy in me. They look so bored... I remember the polar bears in the Brookfield Zoo had worn a path, doing the same walk over and over, shaking his head back and forth. I don't think he wanted to, but found comfort in the same behavior in his boredom. 


  1. What a nice glimpse into your life.
    I dislike shopping for clothes-so much so that sometimes it's YEARS in between. I NEVER have that problems with plants though!

  2. PS--get an electric piano with headphones---that's how I get some practise in. And yes, I SUCK at piano, but I love it!

  3. What an enjoyable glimspe into your life, Sissy. I thought Sissy was your name. Now I am wondering what your true name is. :)

  4. I always enjoy getting to know a little more about the bloggers I read. I thought I was pretty tall, but you have me beat by a few inches. A great quote--words everyone could live by.

  5. This was fun to read.

    I tried to teach myself piano too, two summers ago. I did do the electric keyboard and headphones, and I enjoyed learning. However, I find that at this point I just don't have enough time to put into it --I'd have to trade time with something else, and some things just don't give :-)

  6. GREAT POST, Sissy girl! Thank you for the link! Underwear that's too big...been there, done that. You're 5'11"? You tower over me! No wonder you need a king sized bed. GREEN rules! :) Have a great weekend!


I would love to hear from you and if you can leave a comment, I will visit your blog, too!
