Theme Thursday - Bread

One of my favorite groups growing up was David Gates and Bread - such a mellow (no pun intended!) group and they had a lot of top songs but my favorite, especially now that I have a daughter, is simply called "Daughter." So this is dedicated to my daughter, Nicole. :)

Daughter - don't give your love to the first man you see.
Just bide your time so your heart will be free to find the one,
Girl you don't have to run.

Daughter - don't think that love has gone out of style,
Just some folks every once in a while don't understand
How this world was planned.

Now I know you're wondering how
You know when the real thing is comin' your way,
When you live for him and not you
You'll know that it's truly comin' to stay.

Daughter - I know it's hard to make yourself wait,
But when the right man comes it's never too late
So don't you cry ,
He'll be here by and by... and steal your heart away.

Although that was probably one not too many of you have heard, I bet you have heard this one:

More meme - taken from Canadian Cal

1. Name someone with the same birthday as you.

Susan Dey is the only one I can think of off the top of my head.

2. Where was your first kiss?

3rd grade, Memorial School, Jody Becker.

3. Have you ever hit someone of the opposite sex? If yes, why?

Yep, mostly in jest. Once seriously when I tried to make John wake up - little did I know he was having a seizure.

4. Have you ever sung in front of a large number of people? When?

Nope. I did try out for a high school musical back in the day but was assigned to make up. That tells a lot.

5. What is the first thing you notice about the other sex?

Eyes and smile.

6. What really turns you off?

Men who think they are all that and a bag of chips. I hate pompous asses.

7. What is your biggest mistake?

My biggest mistake turned out to be one of my proudest - I got pregnant in my teens and had my now 25 year old son and raised him on my own until Wings and I got married when my son was 11.

8. Have you ever hurt yourself on purpose?

I've thought of it - but have never acted on anything suicidal.

9. Say something totally random about yourself.

I have a façade that very few people see beyond.

10. Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity?

I actually won 2nd place in a Buffy look-a-like contest. And for you young'uns: Not Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Buffy from Family Affair. LOL

11. Do you still watch kiddie movies or TV shows?

Oh definitely - I actually watched Spongebob today!

12. Are you comfortable with your height?

I am definitely too short.

13. What is the most romantic thing someone of the preferred sex has done for you?

He did a scavenger hunt and the last "find" was him, proposing!

14. When do you know it's love?

When no matter what kind of a bitch I am, Joe hasn't left me yet.

15. What's something that really annoys you?

The way people don't acknowledge personal space anymore. And I don't know if it's a culture thing or what not; but stop frickin' breathing down my neck in line. And good lord, don't even go to the side of me in line...I will rip your ever loving heart out.

7. You have the opportunity to sleep with the music-celebrity of your choice. Who do you pick?

Back in the day I would've said Steven Tyler - not so much any more. How about Adam Lambert - yeah, I know he's gay, but damn, he's smokin hot!

Hire a tour guide.

I can't drink.

12. Rufus appears out of nowhere with a time-traveling phone booth. You can go anytime in the PAST. What time are you traveling to and what are you going to do when you get there?

June 18, 1983 and I would a. tell my Dad how much I love him; and b. call an EMT while he's out mowing the lawn.

I like to annoy the kids so I usually say the F word...but I really should stop that, you know, cuz they are 14 and almost 12. LOL

16.One night you wake up because you heard a noise. You turn on the light to find that you are surrounded by MUMMIES. The mummies aren’t really doing anything, they’re just standing around your bed. What do you do?

Hope Chest - I don't care how I would carry it out, but I would.

18. The Angel of Death has descended upon you. Fortunately, the Angel of Death is pretty cool and in a good mood, and it offers you a half-hour to do whatever you want before you bite it. Whatcha gonna do in that half-hour?

Drive around the city and hit all the f'ing jaywalkers and troublemakers who pretty much crawl across the street and don't give a f*** who is there.

I should say what Wings said: 11:45 PM to 12:15 AM, New Year's Eve 1994 into New Year's Day 1995...and as much as I loved that 1/2 hour of my life, I would have to go back to that 1/2 hour before my Dad died and hopefully do something to save him.

21.You can erase any horrible experience from your past. What will it be?

My Dad dying and finding John - I will never fully recover.

22. You got kicked out of the country for being a time-traveling heathen who sleeps with celebrities and has super-powers. But check out this cool shit… you can move to anywhere else in the world! Bitchin’! What country are you going to live in now?


23. This question still counts, even for those of you who are under age. Check it out. You have been eternally banned from every single bar in the world except for ONE. Which one is it gonna be?

I'd have to hope that my brothers were at the same house because if they were they would think they were hallucinating and I would laugh hysterically!

25. The constant absorption of magical moonbeams mixed with the radioactive vegetables you consumed earlier has given you the ability to resurrect the dead famous-person of your choice. So which celebrity will you bring back to life?

Famous person? Dad was on Candlepins for Cash - does that count as celebrity? If not, I'll go with Ted Kennedy - only because I would've liked to have seen him get his healthcare thing passed.

26. The Celestial Gates of Beyond have opened, much to your surprise because you didn’t think such a thing existed. Death appears. As it turns out, Death is actually a pretty cool entity, and happens to be in a fantastic mood. Death offers to return the friend/family-member/person, etc. of your choice to the living world. Who will you bring back?

without a doubt, my Dad.

27. What’s your theme song?

Used to be my Playground.
