Ten Things Meme

I've been tagged by my longtime friend Zazzy.

1. Describe yourself in seven words.
Strong, fragile, trusting, introvert, compassionate, calm, frantic.

2. What keeps you awake at night?
Restless leg syndrome, carpal tunnel pain, and the temperature of my bedroom.

3. If you could be anyone for a day, who could you be and why?
A backup musician for Bob Dylan. Yes, I am gaga over him, and always will be.

4. What are you wearing right now?
Black cotton knit pants, long-sleeved olive tee shirt, and a little woolen muffler around my neck.
5. What scares you?
Further diabetes complications, being a burden to someone else, running out of insurance coverage to take care of the db needs, and global terrorism.

6. What are the best and worst things about blogging?
Best - making friends all over the world, getting emotional support, being creatively inspired. Worst - going bonkers when my computer shuts down, thinking people will judge my posts as stupid, being disappointed when I don't get a lot of comments.

7. What was the last website you looked at, apart from Twitter or Facebook?
Barefoot Contessa. I watch her cooking show on cable when I'm at dialysis. I swear she has never made anything yet that doesn't have at least 1/2 pound of butter in it.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
The fact that I refused to have meetups with online friends until June of this year. Stupid stupid stupid.

9. Slankets, yes or no?
Well maybe yes if they were on sale or someone gave me one as a gift.

10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you.
Zazzy and I have been friends for a couple of years now. She is a devoted caregiver to her aging parents, and the mom to 2 kittys, Stasia and Casper. She is creative, wise, and insightful. She rocks!

I am tagging another good friend, Colleen.
Go for it!

Are you sure you were not describing me in question number 1?

Zazzy said...

What I like best about Ina Garten is she seems totally comfortable with who she is and doesn't apologize about the butter. If I can't be the idealized person in my imagination, I'd like to be Ina Garten!

I love more about my friends which is why I LOVE Meme's like this.

I am very happy about #8. When Scott told me you two met I was in tears. I can't wait til I can get back to MN!

ugh, insurance woes keep me up at night, indeed.

so glad you do blog (and are getting out and meeting up with others!)

Colleen said...

You made me laugh!
I don't even know what a slanklet??? is...
I'll do it - just for you.
And yeah - waiting that long to go to a d-meetup... terrible!!!

Zazzy said...

Thanks for playing along! What I love about the Barefoot Contessa is that she seems to feel so comfortable with who she is, butter or no butter.

Big hugs to you!
