Random Questions from Susan


Susan at Learning for Lifetime had a really neat post the other day in which she answered questions posed by a fellow blogger. Susan asked for volunteers to answer some random questions posed by her and, since I am always open for bloggety fun, I volunteered to play along:

1. What's your worst pet peeve? This question is always hard for me because I have so many! I guess my worst would be laziness. There is so much to experience and give back in a lifetime, and I just hate seeing people make the choice to let so much of life pass them by.

2. (For Susan, who thought I should extend my Thursday Thirteen to others.)What are five things you would do if "money were no object"?
1. Hire a masseuse/hair dresser / manicurist / housekeeper to be at my beck and call.
2. Travel to my heart's desire (first class all the way) with my precious family.
3. Set up a foundation to do all sorts of philanthropic work. I'm especially passionate about helping children.
4. Build our dream home, which would include a gym/workout room, a pool, a guest house, lots of fireplaces, a movie theater and a huge library.
5. Help my family and friends with some of their dreams.

3. If you could be an inanimate object, what would you be and why?
What: A first edition Shakespeare novel.


And since you know you cannot see yourself,
so well as by reflection,
I, your glass,will modestly discover to yourself,
that of yourself which you yet know not of.

-- and--

He who has injured thee was either stronger or weaker than thee.
If weaker, spare him;
if stronger, spare thyself.

4. OK, fess up, some people have eaten crayons or tasted glue. What's the strangest thing you've ever taste-tested? Where were you and why did you do it? That would be dry cat food when I was 7 or 8 years old. I loved my cat so very much, and she loved the cat food so very much. So I thought I might like the cat food, too. But, I didn't.

5. And because I LOVE music and Linda used music: If you were standing before all of your friends and family and they asked you to summarize yourself in one to two songs, what would you sing and why?

We Bow Down, by Twila Paris. This song is a wonderful testament to my love of the Lord. Without him I am nothing.

You are King of the Heavens and King of my life
King of the land and the sea
You were King of Creation before there was time
And King of all Kings You will be

My second song, We are a Family, is one I listen to with my 15m old son Adam in the car sometimes.

If you're up for answering five random questions from me, leave a comment.

Susan :

Hi Jill, I've never visited your site before but I answer these same 5 questions of Susan's and wanted to see how you answered yours. I loved your answers. I like your site. I'll be back!

Great answers! I too would hire a hairdresser if money was not an issue. Wouldn't that be a wonderful treat each morning!
