A One World-One Heart Giveaway And A List!

Okay, no fair skimming through the list to get to the giveaway prize. Hmpf....A HA! I caught you, you naughty blogger...I am so keeping an eye on all of you... I found this list on our Valerie's blog and pilfered it. Well, I asked her if I could take it, she said yes indeedy so I guess it really was NOT pilfered but I just wanted to say that word. Pilfered. There. I said it again. Doesn't it sound like something you would do while making bread? "Now then, take the dough and *pilfer* it for 5 minutes until it is mixed well." What? Get back to the list? Oh, you just want it over so you can get to the giveaway part huh? You all know I love a good list...heck. I love a bad list too. Okay...let's play 50 questions.
1. If your doctor told you TODAY that you were pregnant, what would you say? Doc honey? What do you guys put in your drinks around here? Have you lost your mind? I am 51, menopausal and do not take shocks well...then I would tell Bill that Brian's shirt on ebay makes a lovely maternity top. 2. Do you trust all of your friends? Yes, thank fully I do. I trust everyone...it is just me. I probably put too much trust in some folks but there you have it. Or am I just gullible. Wait! Don't answer that. I trust my friends, my mail carrier, my dog, the neighbors, the guy that broils chicken at our favorite Mom and Pop restaurant and that lady I see walking her dog in the park...the one over there by the swings...uh huh. Her. I trust all of them. These folks who keep emailing me about funds in bank accounts in Kenya and me winning the Irish sweepstakes? Not so much. 3. Would you move to another state or country to be with the one you love? Are you serious? I DID! I moved to Florida 3 times, California twice, Texas, Virginia, Illinois, upstate New York... 4. Do you believe that everything happens for a reason? I try...I really do. I so want to. But it is so hard...it is something I pray about. Really I do. So much seems pointless but perhaps someday we will all understand. But me losing that shirt on ebay..is there really a reason for THAT?? 5. Can you make a dollar in change right now? Not another MATH question!!! Um...okay. I have a quarter and I have a dime...if I add another quarter and, wait. That isn't right... 6. Which one of your friends do you think would make the best doctor? Hmm...they all have the smarts but wait. Are we talking brain surgery here or a PHD?? You see, you did not specify. Doctor of what is the operative question. What word goes in front of doctor...philosophy? Heart? Witch? Ah, now witch doctor I get... 7. Are you afraid of falling in love? Nah...I do it all the time. It's easy. Like falling off a log. As easy as A, B, C...1, 2, 3 and as easy as breathing, unless you have asthma. Like me. 8. Have you been overseas? Uh huh and I was even under a sea once. The waves knocked me down. It was not pretty. But I have also been to England, Holland, Germany and China. I had to fly over a sea to get to each one of them. Or an ocean. I was also over a lake or three. I am over weight too but we will not talk about that last one. 9. Is there someone who pops into your mind at random times? Yes. His name is Brian. Oh. Anyone else? Um...not counting my kids, nephew, Mom, husband and friends? And just how does one *POP*? I so want to pop into someone's mind. It sounds like fun. 10. What’s your most favorite scar? Well, this sounds positively creepy but don't get me wrong. I can do creepy. I can. Really. I have a thin, one inch long scar on the base of my chin. I tried to fly down the neighbor's basement steps when I was 5. You know what? 5 years olds can not fly. Unless they are birds. Or flies but flies do not live to be 5. Unless they are Jeff Goldblum. Would someone please help him?? What? I am rambling aren't I? Anyway, that scar kept me out of the Miss America pageant. Terrible isn't it? At least, this is what I tell myself. 11. When was the last time you flew in a plane? We flew to NYC last April. The flight was awful. They ran out of Diet Coke in food service. It was totally UN-American. However, NYC was amazing and totally American. 12. What did the last text message you sent say? Text what?? I am 51, slow witted and do not see small letters up close. Would you like to ask me another question? 13. What features do you find most attractive in the preferred sex? Eyes...first and foremost. Hands, strong hands. Great wit, a strong sense of self, intelligence and that they tolerate me. That last one is always a real turn on. 14. Fill in the blank. I love ________.… Paris in the Springtime. I love Paris in the Fall. I love Paris in the Winter, when it drizzles, I love Paris in the Summer, when it sizzles. And I love pasta. I really, really love pasta. And the color blue. And puppies...and kittens...and... 15. What is a goal you would like to accomplish in the near future? You mean like a Bucket List? Oh wow. It has changed so much over the years. I was able to check some of them off...and have removed some and added others. I doubt I will become the toast of Broadway. Or master Physics. Or win an Oscar. But who knows. They are always looking for character actresses and I am a huge character. I still want to see Paris, in the Summer when it sizzles...or in the Fall. Cooler then. I want to go to Italy. I really want to visit the koalas in Australia. I want to be in Punxsutawney, PA for Groundhog's Day. DO. NOT. LAUGH. This was on my list long before the film. I want to finish putting my laundry away. That is one goal I might actually have a shot at. Or not. 16. If you were to wake up from being in a coma for an extended time who would you call? Pizza Hut. I would be awfully hungry. 17. How many kids do you want to have? You mean in addition to the two I have? Are you crazy? Ah ha! You are in cahoots with that doctor from question one aren't you? Oh...maybe you were referring to goats. I love baby goats. 2 please. 18. Would you make a good parent? Probably am not but I try awfully hard! Do I get points for that? 19. Where was your favorite picture taken? I have taken approximately 2987 billion pictures in my life and you want me to choose one? I will pick 3 because I never follow rules. The picture of Danny with us greeting him in Philadelphia...he had just walked off the plane from Korea. The picture of Grace in China when she first broke into a real smile... Our wedding picture, taken in Dayton, Ohio...the one we did not know was being taken. Dang I look young. Oh. I WAS young. 20. What’s your middle name? Ellen...oh yeah. Like in "Hey there Sue Ellen...how is old JR?" 21. Honestly, what’s on your mind right now? I am only on question 21? Sheesh! 22. If you could go back in time and change something, what would it be? The idea I had that hot pants and go go boots on me would be a good idea. 23. Who was or will be the maid of honor/ best man in your wedding? My buddy *T*, then, as punishment, she had me be her Matron of Honor the next year. Neither of us still has the dress. Or could fit into it if we did. 24. What are you wearing right now? A lovely Lily Pulitzer print dress, coordinating heels with the cutest bow and a string of pearls. You can trust me. Really. I swear. 25. Righty or Lefty? While doing what?? Do you have to be so vague?? 26. Best place to eat? Where there is food. This is difficult? 27. Favorite jeans? Any pair I can fit in to. See? I am so easy. 28. Favorite Animal? Kipper thinks it is a dog. Lucy and Henry think it is a cat. Ah, the three of them know me so well. 29. Favorite juice? Grape or Cranberry and always mixed with a little Diet Ginger Ale or 7 UP. 30. Have you had the chicken pox? I did and then, 3 years ago, I had the shingles because of those pesky chicken pox. The shingles hurt like heck and were the worst thing I have ever experienced. Why oh why did those nasty chickens give me a pox? Oh, wait. I changed my mind about question 28. The answer is a chicken!! I LOVE chickens. Really...I DO!! I LOVE them. 31. Have you had a sore throat? Once again, I AM old. I have had just about everything. Sore throats, hang nails, split ends... 32. Ever had a bar fight? ....but NO Bar fights! What do I look like anyway? Clint Eastwood in Any Which Way But Loose? Oh. The Orangetan? Clint will be happy to hear that. 33. Who knows you the best? My Mom, my girl friends and, on a good day, my husband. But he still does not get why I wanted a $300 dollar shirt. 34. Shoe size? 9 1/2 and yes, my feet are large and not dainty. There is nothing dainty about me...wait. Nope, not that either. 35. Do you wear contact lenses or glasses? I wear tri focals. Yes...I AM Old. Reeeeally old. 36. Ever been in a fight with your pet? Yes, Kipper and I fight over chicken legs and bed covers and Bill's lap all the time. IT gets ugly. REALLY ugly. 37. Been to Mexico? Yup...several times. Why do you ask? Is there a warrant out for me or something? 38. Did you buy something today? A small Diet Coke at a McDonald's drive thru. They don't call me Big Spender for nuthin'. 39. Did you get sick today? Uh huh..I have a touch of what my nephew, sis in law had and what my brother now has. I am fighting it off with all I have. Maybe I should call in Clint Eastwood and that orangetan. 40. Are you angry with anyone today? Are you just trying to stir up trouble? Anger and bar fights...what is your problem? 41. Did you get in a fight with someone today? I Think YOU need an attitude re-adjustment buddy. Take a deep breath and let it out slowly. Let all that anger and resentment go...see? Feel better? 42. When is the last time you had a massage? Like I have ever had one? Are you offering? Yippee! 43. Last person to lie in your bed? Me...I told Bill I felt great when I actually felt really nauseous. It was only a little white lie...really! Okay. I am so sorry and yes. I DID know what you really meant. 44. Last person to see you cry? Bill. And no, it was not his fault. And NO. It was not about the $300 shirt. Or waaaassss it? Hmmmm.... 45. Who made you cry? That little boy on that commercial...you know...the really cute kid that says the sweet things... 46. What was the last TV show you watched? A re-run of Law and Order SVU. And no, it was NOT the one Brian starred in this year. Gee whiz. 47. What are your plans for the weekend? To get over this stomach thing and be a volunteer at the base Valentine Party for families of deployed service members. 48. Who do you think will repost this? I doubt if anyone has actually read it enough to want to re-post it. You all went straight to the giveaway section didn't you? I KNEW it! 49. Who was the last person you hung out with? My nephew and I hung out while I drove him from school to his baby sitters. We laughed, we sang...okay, he put his hands over his ears while *I* sang... 50. If your significant other asked you to marry them TODAY, what would you say? Today? Let me think...hm..aw..okay. I'd give the guy a break and say yes. He is kinda cute after all. Now, about the gift from groom to bride...there is this shirt I want. It is ONLY $300. Bill? Bill? BILL?? Ta dah...you have finally reached the giveaway portion of our post. You peeked didn't you? Aw, come one...who would read all that list drivel when a gift is up for grabs! Just click on this link and you will be able to visit other wonderful people who are also participating: ~One World-One Heart~ Thanks to dear Lisa Oceandreamer for once again creating this amazing giveaway event. I will let Lisa's own words explain: "I created this event in 2007. The original idea behind this giveaway event was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It closes the gap of the blog community and enables us to interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way. Last years event had roughly 85-90 participants and many connections were made because of it......friendships that are still going strong a year later. We had a strong showing the first year for sure, and now this year(2008) we have just about tripled. This is more than wanting to win something.......that is only the means.......in the end it's about finding kindred spirits. Someone may be fairly new to blogging, not sure how to navigate, find others and have others find them....Some are long time bloggers and in some cases well known in the art community. Whatever the case it brings all of them together. This is an INTERNATIONAL event that has and had participants from the US, Canada, France, Sweden, Germany, Finland, Malaysia, Brazil, The Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, Ireland, England,Wales and more. It transcends geographical location, socio economics, political affiliation, religious beliefs......it's a coming together like the giant community we are on this planet. If only it took a simple giveaway to create PEACE everywhere, in the mean time here we give from our hearts. What more could I ask for, my little idea has surpassed my wildest dreams of what it could become. " Amazing right? Well, I just had to do something and a great artist I am not. But hey. A great shopper I CAN be. So I picked up a few Valentine items, one of them a Bethany Lowe heart, and a box of chocolates that will be winging their way to the winner on February 16th. What do you have to do? Oh but it is so easy! Just leave a comment on this post...tell me how positively inane my list was or how absolutely ridiculous it is to crave a $300 shirt that was once worn by some dashing character actor. See? Easy peazy. And if you are REALLY lucky, the package just might contain some other surprises as well...I can almost guarantee a little cat and dog hair in it. Now I KNOW you want to win! I will choose a winner on Valentine's Day, February 14th, 2008. So, leave a comment, say howdedoo and good luck! Love and Hugs, Susie Q

Special K said...

Decided that since you're giving away something that I'd choose today to say hello. Cuz if it's free then it's me!

I've been lurking on your blog. Creepy yes I know. LOL! But seriously, my sister found your blog and sent me over.

We have a few things in common. First of all, we're neighbors.

And I'm in the seemingly endless wait for my daughter from China. Logged in 6-14-06. Yes the wait really has gotten that long. Not sure if you keep up with us rookies.

Anyway, just saying hello. I'm not giving anything away on my blog though. Sorry. :)

Marilyn said...

I promise I didn't peek...I read every single answer...really..I promise!

Michelle said...

I really liked your answer to the first question LOL

Glad to see you participating in this too...I'm not a crafter/creative person so what I'm giving away isn't handmade either - I just wish I could make some of those neat things other bloggers are giving away!

Dawn Bibbs said...

Ok, you're not gonna believe this. I did, in fact, read ALL 50 of the questions AND your answers. I absolutely LOVE your answers...always do. I love laughing at your witty answers. I even read a few of them to my sweet hubby. YES...he laughed too. As a matter of fact, so did Trae (my doggie...lol).

HOWEVER...I do have a confession. I DIDN't (fully) read the last paragraph (or 2). I was just enjoying your answers. But I see there was something about a contest...

Anyhoo...I think I'm gonna answer these questions too...eventually :-).

Love ya, my friend. Have a groovy weekend.

Hey, $300 for that shirt is less than a number of people paid for certain black T-shirts just a few years ago. Too bad I couldn't afford one! {sigh}

Ladycape (who didn't skip down, honest!)

Mom2fur said...

Hey, Suzie, I was just stopping by to say thanks for visiting my blog. I think it's great that Grace likes to sew and is good at it at such a young age. Does she ever do any designing, too?
Your list is a stitch. I'm sorry to find out you've had stomach problems and hope you feel better soon! (Like today!) The rules, from the doctor I work for: no dairy, no fruit. Crackers, ginger ale, broth. For future reference, from Mom2fur (who has an ulcer and knows about these things): ginger tea and real licorice are great for upset stomachs. Honestly, ginger ale hasn't got much more than fond memories of ginger. And real licorice, which you can find in the health food section of the grocery--a good brand is "Panda." No Good N Plenty licorice, LOL!
Feel better!

LiLi M. said...

hahaha! I like your style but I didn't have the time to read everything. So I will come back and read everything here AND in your blog, which must be promising. I want to peak with each and everyone.
And I love your giveaway! Please count me in and don't forget to hop to my blog to enter my owoh giveaway! I'm giving away a selfmade portfolio with vintage and selfmade cards and wallpaper.
Thanks!

I read the ENTIRE THING!!! Every single word of it...loved it and actually considered "pilfering" it myself and posting my answers on my blog.

Oh how I love a giveaway...I'm really all about those chocolates. I think both you and Terri have given some away and I've yet to be offered a single taste...go figure.

This was too funny - or I haven't seen a comedian in a long time. Take your pick.
Really, it was fun to read and I read the whole thing - I like to read. It's been keeping me from making my way through this list of givers-to-be. Please add me to your list. My husband just threw away my bubblegum. He thinks he'll have to pay a dental bill so let's show him, okay?

It's me again. Can I "pilfer" that bunny pic on the bottom of your blog for my daughter and grandaughter who LOVE bunnies?
I enabled follow-ups to see if you answer. Also, please come see what I am giving away but it won't be as much fun as your place.

Valerie said...

i say howdeedoo, even if you weren't giving away anything.
love you!

Jenn and Jacqui said...

Hi Sue, you are so funny, you always bring a huge smile to our faces!! Now we honestly did read every single thing, BUT, we had to break it up into three parts!! As to the shirt, heck men don't get these things. You are such a generous and kind lady :) We would love to enter your giveaway. Jenn and Jacqui

peggy gatto said...

Boy this was fun! Happy to comment on your wonderful wacky world! Thanks for stopping by my place!

Jolene George said...

I read every word and absolutely enjoyed the whole thing. No skipping to the bottom for me. As for the shirt I think it would be so cool if Bill really did buy it for you as a valentines present. Nobody deserves it more than you Miss Susie Q. I love you to pieces!

Latharia said...

You absolutely have me cracking up. And I don't buy your answer to #24 at all. And I hardly know you. Okay, I don't know you. But I also seriously doubt that people get themselves all gussied up like that, just to cruise blogs. I'm wearing my comfy clothes. I want to know where the people are who are getting all spiffy, just to surf the web, because, man ... that's nuts. So, back to the business at hand...if we can, for a moment, stray back into that arena...Please do enter my name into your drawing & then stop by and visit my blog! :D And listen to some of my music. Some of it may even be soothing enough you stop panicking about questions relating to children and trying to cover for it by talking about baby goats. You didn't sneak that one past us, either, you little minx.

Lori said...

#48!!! LOL!!! you are a funny gal:) i would love to win your sweet little give away goodies!!! a little pet hair won't bother me at all, we refer to cat hair as the "new fringe" or alternately a "spice"!!! depends on whether we are eating or sitting on the couch...or both for that matter...

Ketutar said...

ROTFLMAO!!! Your answers are the best I have ever read in these 50 question thingies!

I have asthma too, and I love kids... they must be the cutest of all baby animals. The soft fleece and those sturdy legs and... They are much cuter than baby lambs, kittens, puppies, foals and basically anything.
And if you want Brian Dennehy's shirt, go ahead. I think you could write to him and ask him for a date and get his shirt for free. And his autograph. I think he'd like it.

A family of boys said...

I love your blog! Just so cheery and Pink!!!! In case you check out my blog, you'll quickly realize that I am surrounded by all boys. Even the pets are boys.

I love that Valentine stuff! My boys kind of all go wierd around Valentine's day. I think I try to put them in pink and heart overload. He-he!

For the record, I read the whole thing...too funny! Unfortunately, I now have to go explain to my coworkers why odd snorting sounds have been coming from my cubicle. As repayment for the embarrassment, I think you should let me win. =)

angelsamoungus said...

I tried to read between the lines-you mentioned that some have not responded to your give away. That would be me. Since we are such good friends I thought that someone may think it was rigged :)

If I win-I want to send the gifts to your Chris at Walter Reed.

Hope you are feeling better and we will see you all soon.

LOve,
Terri
