Thursday Thirteen #20-I Want To Know

I'm interested in all views on life. I may not agree with yours and you may not agree with mine, but I'm fascinated by the way people think. So, I present:

13 Things I Want To Know About You
(I will post my answers tomorrow. Of course, feel free to skip questions if
you are chicken feel they are too personal.) :)

1. Would you eat spoiled food from the garbage, or go hungry?

2. Would you make one adult film, if it meant that you would never have to work again?

3. In your relationship, you find out that a baby has been conceived. One of you wants the baby, the other doesn't. Who has the right to choose?

4. You are in a serious accident in the middle of nowhere and you only chance of survival is to cut off your own arm. Would you do it?

5. Do you think it is important to tell the truth, or spare someone's feelings?

6. What is something you find yourself constantly thinking about?

7. If your house was on fire, what is the one thing you would have to save (of course, I am assuming that all people/pets are safe)?

8. Forgive and forget? Or forget to forgive?

9. Why are you best friends with your best friend?

10. Name one challenge you are faced with on a regular basis.

11. Do you think its possible to only love one person for the rest of your life?

12. If you had the skills, what is your dream job?

13. What is your favorite quote/saying/scripture?

Andrea said...

Very intersting and thought-provoking questions. I haven't decided if I'm going to answer them in a comment, or do my own post about it....

Regina said...

Here's mine.
1. Hope I never have to find out…

2. NO

3. The one carrying the baby.

4. Again, I hope to never have to find out, am I out of cell phone range?... Me and God will need to have a serious talk!

5. Initially truth is better, but every now and then someone’s feelings may take precedence, it depends.

6. Moving to a warmer climate and remarrying.

7. Nothing, insurance can replace things! I would miss all my family pictures and my computer but it’s not worth trying to grab.

8. Forgive and forget. God is still working on me with the forgetting part!

9. She’s always been there for me.

10. Going to work!

11. Yes

12. Be a Hotel Mogul

13. Isaiah 54:17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the LORD.

Pam said...

Wow! You ask some tough questions!!

1. it depends on how long- for a short while- go hungry. Long term- probably eat it.
2. Uhm, yeah- does that make me a bad person?
3. The choice was already made when we agreed to take our pants off- take responsibility for your actions and be a parent or give the baby to someone who will/can be. If that means both, one, or none of you...I don't know.
4. I'd like to think I would...but I am not sure I am strong enough to do that to myself.
5. Tell the truth in a way to isn't hurtful. But, I tend to just tell the truth.
6. My children and if they are suffering from having me as their mommy.
7. my laptop of course
8. I should forgive and forget, but I tend to forgive and hold on to it for a rainy day....I know I shouldn't though
9. because she would help me drag the body across the floor if I murdered someone (not that I would murder someone, but she would be there for me regardless of what I do or say)
10. Not complaining and being completely negative about things- I really don't have it that badly, but my mind goes to the 'dark' side first
11. I think that I will always love my children and friends. If you mean love one spouse- I think that marriage/love goes in waves. It is easy to love when the wave is high and harder to love on the low...but if you are committed and in love, you will work on it and work on it and stay in love. I think that if you don't work on it, you will fall out of love.
12. Being a party planner - but my real dream job is to stay home with my kids...we just don't have the finances for that one.
13. There are so many! There is "God could not be everywhere and therefore he created mothers" and "be kinder then necessary for everyone is fighting some kind of battle" and If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you (winnie the pooh) and “I'll lean on you and you lean on me and we'll be okay” and....well, I could go on and on

Mom said...

2. No - I have more respect for myself than that.
3. The innocent party.
4. Yes
5. Tell the truth always!!
6. My children

8. Forgive - but never forget.
9. Because she's my sister.
10. My granddaughter
11. Yes.
12. A judge
13. Wat goes around - comes around.

13 - I have a couple, my favorite I couldn't find to get it right, but here's another " You may be one peson to the world, but to many people you are the world"

kellyo75 said...

Candygirlflies said...

1. Probably. And extol the virtues of the antibiotic properties all the while...

2. I couldn't. As soon as I took my clothes off, everyone else would be laughing too hard to shoot the movie, anyway.

3. It's my body. Enough said.

4. Hmmm.... Do I have a scalpel or a spoon as my instrument-of-choice??

5. Tell the truth while being extremely conscious and careful of feelings... It's all in the language one uses...

6. The friggin' stock market...

7. My girlies' "lovies" (two blankets and a teddy bear) We couldn't make it through any serious crisis without those...

8. Oh, I have been beating myself up about "forgiveness" FOREVER... I am a terrible one to hold onto past-wrongs. But, a post on "Painted Maypole" last year really helped me. She said that forgiveness is a CHOICE TO TREAT THE PERSON WHO WRONGED YOU WITH LOVE. To forgive does not necessarily erase the HURT one feels. Hearing that helped. Because it made me realize that I HAD actually "forgiven" a certain person a long time ago, and I was able to release the guilt that I had been carrying around...

8. Because he's as crazy as I am.

9. Getting three little girls wrestled into three pairs of tights every dang morning of the winter, without being late for school...

10. Not always. It sure is hard work sometimes. Loving one person for a lifetime is a choice, a commitment. Not everyone is up for the challenge.

11. I would love to be a doctor like my dad... But that job requires more than "skills"... you need a divine gift to be able to treat patients as effectively, and with as much kindness, as he did.

12. "We can't all. And some of us don't."

-- Eeyore (A. A. Milne)

and:

"Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est."

("Where charity and love are, God is there.")

Ah, nuts... I just realized I can't count... Sorry. It's supposed to go up to "13", isn't it??

Oh, and I just had a thought... I could always shoot the adult film, so long as it was marketed as a "Comedy".

The money we'd make would set me up for life, and then some.
