Meme on!

tagged me with a fun meme, and it's been a while since I've done one. And then I read Terri at her blog with the meme she just did. It inspired me to mix my meme up a little.

Here are the regular rules for the 6 quirky things about me meme:

* Post the rules on your blog
* Write 6 random things about yourself
* Tag 6 people

Here are my rules:

I'm gonna post 5 things, instead of 6, about me that have multiple choice answers. They're all a little quirky, so any of them could be the right answer ... heck there maybe more than one right answer. So have fun trying to figure me out.

I'm extremely competitive and ...

a) get very anxious playing my son or husband in any sport at home because I've got to win.

b) won't bet unless I know it's a sure thing. I've hardly ever lost a bet.

c) can't even relax while learning something new and shouldn't be the best yet, but still expect to be.

d) feel the need to even win 'rock - paper - scissors' or thumb-wars against my DH.

Whenever I mean to do or say something that doesn't come out right, I pop out with ...

a) Oh, did I do that?

b) O, just kiddin'

c) Seriously?

d) Not even!


I can speak these languages:

a) German

b) Pidgin

c) Japanese

d) Spanish


I was once on ...

a) a yaught in the Pacific ocean with photographers, and the owner of it was a friend to the Yakuza.

b) a first date which was held on military ship. The military officer, who invited me couldn't leave, b/c he had to work. He made me dinner, and I got the grand tour.

c) a runway, walking the cat-walk. It was for a nationally televised fashion show in Japan.

d) spring break, where I went bungee jumping in Padre, while in college.


In my life I've ...

a) had to do crowd control at Rick Springfield's concert & ended up doing the bouncer's job by the stage front.

b) sunbathed al-la natural on my parent's back deck, which was upstairs so no one could see me. I though no one was home, until my dad walked in on me getting rid of my sun tan lines. I've never done that again!

c) learned to play the guitar, and the piano.

d) run 3 marathons.

What are the answers? Who should do this next? I'd be interested in seeing how BusyDad does his. Also Meg would have fun with this. Tara, at IfMomSaysOK needs to have a crack at it. And that's it ... I'm not pushing it on anyone else.

I look forward to seeing which of those random facts belong to me!

Undercover Boss Eye Opener

This past week I watched Undercover Boss, which featured Retro Fitness and one employee in particular, who got fired.  Normally Undercover Boss shows a few employees, with great stories and good work ethic, and sometimes there may be a few problem employees.

In this last issue, it seems all anyone is talking about is that one problem employee, named Jacqueline, who was a shining example of what bad attitudes are really about, and was about as bad as they come.

Jacqueline, who on the outside, seemed like a clean cut decent person until she opened her mouth to speak.  And this girl wasn't just rude ... she was abusive to everyone around her. 

As if it wasn't bad enough that she was completely unprofessional and had no compassion for anyone around her at work ... she then turned into the flippant, defensive, careless girl, who talked back to the CEO of the company when he tried to explain his grievances with her.  She passionately denied anything he was trying to explain to her, …

Brian Naranjo - A Celebrated Man

It's Saturday...

It's Saturday, and at this very moment a few hundred miles north of me, my friend is grieving the loss of her husband.

It's Saturday and this week has felt like an eternity.  I've moved through this week with such a heavy heart.

And I feel guilty for being trapped in this fog of sorrow, as I'm not the one who lost my life long partner of over 20 years. I'm not the one who just got my husband back from Afghanistan, only to lose him to an unexpected death.

I can not fathom how my friend is coping, walking step by step through the process of burying her soul mate at the tender young age of 39.

Brian Naranjo would have been 40 years old on February 29th, 2012. Brian Naranjo would have his whole life ahead of him.  He would have been celebrating a marquis year, when you're supposed to reflect on where you've come and what you have left to do. 

In reading his Facebook wall, as I'm inexplicably drawn to it, I've read the many memo…

No, Dude! I Really Don't Want to See That!

Yesterday was one for the books ... 
I was in a meeting with a sales manager at a car dealership, which was almost coming to a close when someone from the lobby alerted the manager that someone had driven up on the lot.  From the look on his face, I could tell that whoever this person was - was not exactly welcome.
He promptly apologized and excused himself so that he could deal with the person we'll call 'Dude'.  Within seconds I heard Dude and could tell that he was high maintenance from the commotion in the lobby.  He had not only shown up in a test drive truck but had a ton of his belongings inside and a trailer hitched to the back.
Patiently, I waited inside hoping that whatever went down wouldn't be a 'situation' as the energy felt in the dealership was a bit heightened.
A few minutes later, the manager returned to process a paperwork for Dude when Dude stepped into the inner office for a quick question.  I smelled him before I saw him as smoke rolled in…
