Hi, my name is:
Katherine. Yup, that's me.Other nicknames that floated around over the years were Kitkat, Wren, Rine, Kat, Katrina. Spelled with a K. Never Kathy. Nothing over the top. It means pure. I like that. Something to aspire to.
Never in my life have I been:
Bungi jumping, hand gliding or skydiving. All sound cool, but await for another day.
The one person who can drive me nuts is:
I have got to agree with C here. "Myself. Seriously." I am definitely my worst enemy.
Was a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. I think I have lived 7-8 lives since then, maybe more. If I live up to my namesake I might be in a bit of a pickle
When I’m nervous:
I become very quiet. I have been told that is not like me.
The last song I listened to was:
England by Great Big Sea
If I were to get married right now my best man/maid of honor:
I didn't have one the first time I got married, so not sure what I would do now. First things first though. I have to track down Mr Right and sidle up to date #1. Any singletons out there?
My hair is:
Down to my chin. It has not always been so. In a previous reincarnation of me the shaved look was what I sported. I was um, eclectic/goth/freak? Again, so long ago I nary remember
When I was 5:
My sister was younger than me. She still is actually. Funny that?
We cut down a real tree again (after buying one at a grocery store the year previous). It was a big ole beauty that was the purtiest tree you ever did see. I love Christmas tree hunts. Jingle Bells, jingle bells...
I should be..:
in bed and asleep, but I must persevere!
When I look down I see:
Two very full baskets of clean clothes that need folding and putting away before we go away. Sigh. Not tonight.
The happiest recent event was:
Hmm, my weekly dinner date with Nancy, David and Ella tonight
If I were a character on ‘Friends’ I’d be:
-dated question. Too tired to debate. Maybe Gunter from the coffee shop
By this time next year:
My children will have started school and I will have that much more of a grip on my world (I hope!)
My current gripe is:
hmm, ack, who likes a whiner
I have a hard time understanding:
why I am still not in bed. I will be up late tomorrow visiting with family. Just go already!
There’s this girl I know that:
is fun, beautiful (really, I am not just saying that), smart, well-read and is still under-appreciated by her husband. I don't get why relationships can fall apart or struggle so much, when love brings two people together, but doesn't remind them of its beauty in essence in the everyday world. We all want to be loved and appreciated. Why is it that so many fall apart under the scrutiny of life. A shame that pains me as I sit watching from the sidelines.
If I won an award, the first person I would tell would be:
Probably my sister, but it depends upon if she answered the phone first.
Take my advice:
Appreciate all that you are given. Some day it may be taken from you before you are ready, or realize its worth.
The thing I want to buy:
A new roof for my house. Not a glory purchase, but it has got to be done
If you visited the place I was born:
"You'd be bored to tears. And then you'd leave." Yeah, I was born there too. I would suggest visiting the Mill Pond. I wouldn't know what else was there, as it has been almost 6 years since I was there last.
I plan to visit:
Toronto next week
If you spent the night at my house:
Make coffee in the morning. The coffee maker is over the stove. Thanks. I will be sleeping in. Feed my cats while you are at it. You are a doll ;)
I’d stop my wedding if:
I thought I should for some reason. I would bet it won't be a big choreographed affair, so no big deal.
The world could do without:
Nothing. Everything has its reason and its purpose, even if we may not be able to see it at the time.
I’d rather lick the belly of a cockroach than:
ewww, not much. Yuck!!!!
Most recent thing I’ve bought myself:
bottle of wine
Most recent thing someone else bought me:
My favorite blonde is:
My eldest daughter
My favorite brunette is:
My youngest daughter
My favorite red head is:
oh, how about the little red-headed girl in my daughter's class at daycare who always makes a point of coming over to say hi to me with a huge smile and wave
My middle name is:
Who wants to know? Getting kind of personal now (2 names M---, A---)
In the morning I:
The animals I would like to see flying besides birds are:
I like the frog thing C. They are cute critters.
Once, at a bar:
My boyfriend/hubby-to-be tried to dance with me while slightly intoxicated. He did not dance. He danced worse that night. A righteous hip check sent me teetering and over on my ankle. A lovely sprain that reminded me to always pick my girlfriends for dance partners. Sorry to those of you boys that have got rhythm, but he did not. Geez
Last night I was:
soaking in my jacuzzi tub with a rye. Ah
There’s this guy I know who:
Collects Lego. He's thirty-five. Am I the only one who finds this weird?
If I was an animal I’d be:
great, Dr. Seuss is running through my head right now. "I'd Rather be a Bullfrog"
A better name for me would be:
as long as it isn't ALWAYS Mom, I am ok with that
Tomorrow I am:
going to visit and feast with family. Happy Easter!
Tonight I am:
running out of time! Ack 11:38
My birthday is:
oh, in three months. You better start shopping.
and that concludes our regular viewing for this evening. Please do not adjust your set. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
