I’m writing this with a mobile phone app, so we’ll see how it goes….
This is the Monday Meme About Me hosted by Heather and Wayne of Acting Balanced.com and Touristic.com. The questions are always interesting and thoughtful, and it’s a fun meme. Here goes…
1. What is the most interesting fact you have learned recently?
I’m a terribly curious person, and so I’m always learning new things… But pethaps the most eclectic fact I learned today had to do with 13th century economics in Venice! The article — at Mashable, if I recall correctly– was about how economies rise when the “average” citizens are allowed freedom to participate in the system, and fall when the 1% — elitists in the financial and government sectors — control most of the system and pull back their wealth into their own little circle. Basic economics is not rocket science, that’s for sure, but I had no idea that the ancient Venice economy was so complex.
2. The alarm goes off on Monday morning. What is your first thought?
3. What is the most memorable movie line of all time?
Hard question. MY most memorable movie line — based on how often I repeat it — is probably, “Not happy, Bob, not happy.” Guess what movie it’s from?
4. Describe a situation that always seems to try your patience.
Driving in traffic comes to my mind. I don’t know what it is about people in large cars, but they are very aggressive. I drive a very small car and I’m a “drive exactly the speed limit” type of driver. Therefore, I’ve had my share of suffering through others’ road rages. I loathe going grocery shopping because the traffic is insane and the drivers doubly so; it’s like cruising through a land mine. I always cone home frazzled, exhausted, and grouchy. I avoid going to the city at all costs!
Now I get to ask you a question!
How old were you when you got your driver’s license?
Fonally, to all you swell folks who left comments last week– I’m sorry I haven’t returned yet. This past week I was clobbered with a bad cold and I’m rushing through a few pre-winter home improvement projects. Once the flakes fly (any day now, really), I’ll have more time to visit. Thanks for your faithful visits!
