THANKS OLD OLD LADY OF THE HILLS

OldOldLady Of The Hills http://sitteninthehills64.blogspot.com sent me a list of questions...bravo old lady...i loved them...

Ok all of you...here are old lady's questions in bold face...and my answers.

Any of you interested in sending me your answers - I'd love to hear them.

Here goes!


1. You have just been elected President of the United States. What are the first four things you would do in your new position?
1. I would call out the national guard to sweep our cities and get rid of the terrorists hiding in the basement. 2. I would put pressure on the automobile industry to stop producing conventional cars and push towards electric or solar vehicles...enough that they have us over a barrel. 3. I would make our schools safe...it can be done. 4. I would socialize medicine so everyone is covered.

2. If you could live your life over, what one thing would you do differently?
That one is tricky. I would have started writing sooner...I would have gone to New York to be an actor. I would have been kinder to myself.

3. A Square Peg or A Round Hole, and why?
Round hole. I roll with the punches. I don't expect people to conform to my way of thinking...well not all the time lol. And round is a shape no? My favourite. And finally round is a lot softer than square. Like marshmallows and clouds. Nice.

4. Your very weathly Aunt has left you $100 million., with the caveat that you must
build the house of your dreams anywhere in the world that your heart desires...Where would it be and what would it look like? I would build it in Jerusalem. I could never live anywhere else. One floor. Lots of windows. Overlooking the Old City. With a little garden and lots of balconies. With two rooms more than I need...for company.

5. Your wealthy Aunt also said: You may give a fabulous dinner party for 5 Famous people. But all of these famous people are no longer living....Who would your five Dream Dinner Guests be, and why?
1. Mel Brooks...the 2,000 year old man...becuase I find funny and clever very attractive. 2. Shakespeare...the finest writer of all times. 3. Golda...strong, bright, clever woman...can you beat that? 4. Merlin...anyone who knows me, knows why. 5. Moses...what a life he had.

6. Dancer or Singer? singer...have you ever seen me dance???

7. Do you have a hidden talent that you wish you could persue, and why?
I wish I could say that I could fly...now how great would that be? But, in the last two years I have really started writing and that is such a joy in my life. And I'm so grateful. Oh, and I wish I could find the cure for cancer, bring peace, and invent a kind of chocolate that is not fattening. Sigh.

8. If you were told you had only six monthe to live, How would you spend them?
I would hope that I could spend them not crying and feeling sorry for myself. I have so much to live for and so much that I am grateful for. And I hope I could walk into the light smiling and singing and saying 'Thank you, God. It was a great ride.'

Those were the questions that oldoldladyofthehills sent me and my answers. Took longer than I thought to find them. If you would like to share your answers with me, I'd love to hear them.

Have a great day...stay safe...and thanks for dropping in.

1. You have just been elected President of the United States. What are the first four things you would do in your new position?
1. Resign. The rest don’t matter.

2. If you could live your life over, what one thing would you do differently? I would cry when they teased me. The rest of my life would then be different anyway.

3. A Square Peg or A Round Hole, and why? Round hole. No sharp corners.

4. Your very weathly Aunt has left you $100 million., with the caveat that you must build the house of your dreams anywhere in the world that your heart desires...Where would it be and what would it look like? Marallyn, I’m going to build mine right next to yours.

5. Your wealthy Aunt also said: You may give a fabulous dinner party for 5 Famous people. But all of these famous people are no longer living....Who would your five Dream Dinner Guests be, and why? 1. Golda. Sorry to be a copycat, but she’s a must. 2. Churchill. Where would I be without him? 3. Derek Nimmo. He made me laugh. 4. Tony Hancock. He also made me laugh. What a pity he couldn’t laugh too. 5. Jane Austen. She must have been clever.

6. Dancer or Singer? I’m good at both. I’ll plump for dancer.

7. Do you have a hidden talent that you wish you could persue, and why? Writing. All I need is a publisher to unhide it.

8. If you were told you had only six months to live, How would you spend them? Travelling the world, of course.

LOL, LOL...I LOVE your ansers...but I notice you changed the "rules"...And you didn't post those rules, either....(Did I not send you the rules???)

Your supposed to make up questions for anyone that asks to be interviewed by you! But, having said that---I like that people can answer hese questions if they are so inclined.
I have done two posts where people made up the questions specificallly for me---so, I won't be answering these, my dear....I'm kind of Question-Answered out!

You did good!

1. You have just been elected President of the United States. What are the first four things you would do in your new position?
1. Secure our borders! 2. Eliminate Ben Laden & his Al-Quaida & Al Sadr. 3. Okay drilling in Alaska & New Mexico and off-shore so we no longer depend on foreign oil.

2. If you could live your life over, what one thing would you do differently? I would have become a lawyer which opens doors into the political realm. I would represent those less fortunate who need protection and representation.


3. A Square Peg or A Round Hole, and why? Round. Round is more versatile and fits in more places.
It rolls with the punches.


4. Your very weathly Aunt has left you $100 million., with the caveat that you must build the house of your dreams anywhere in the world that your heart desires...Where would it be and what would it look like? A castle in the Bavarian Alps with beautifully landscaped yards full of evergreen trees that get decorated every Christmas. Then I would build a camp for troubled teens in NM so their lives could be turned around and they could live happy, productive lives.

5. Your wealthy Aunt also said: You may give a fabulous dinner party for 5 Famous people. But all of these famous people are no longer living....Who would your five Dream Dinner Guests be, and why? 1. Abraham, because of his incredible faith. 2. David, because he was a man after God's own heart. 3.John, the disciple Jesus loved. 4. Moses, he was a great leader and man of faith and courage. 5. Abe Lincoln, he was a great leader, honest,compassionate and wise.



6. Dancer or Singer? Singer.

7. Do you have a hidden talent that you wish you could persue, and why? I would love to develope my music abilities and hopefully bless others with the songs I might write, play and sing.

8. If you were told you had only six months to live, How would you spend them? I would want to travel and see places I've always wanted to go, and I would want to see all the people I know and love one last time, and give them something of mine to remember me by and talk to them about where they will spend eternity and hopefully settle the issue.

i put this on my blog b'shem omra of course but here it is for you:

1. You have just been elected President of the United States. What are the first four things you would do in your new position?

a. i would bring our troops home
b. i would put the money saved from the war towards ending children's hunger in our own country
c. i would make alternative energy a number one priority
d. yes, shalom, definitely socialised medicine!

2. If you could live your life over, what one thing would you do differently?

i would have taken drawing lessons in my childhood

3. A Square Peg or A Round Hole, and why?

i am a square peg. can't help it. life is waaaay more difficult, but it teaches me more about relationship

4. Your very weathly Aunt has left you $100 million., with the caveat that you must build the house of your dreams anywhere in the world that your heart desires...Where would it be and what would it look like?

it would be on the oregon coastline. it would have a large deck that could be covered on rainy days so we could watch the waves and the seals. there would be a marvellous library below carved out of the rock, several guest rooms with their own bathrooms, all centred around a great hall with a fireplace and lots of comfy chairs and sofas.

5. Your wealthy Aunt also said: You may give a fabulous dinner party for 5 Famous people. But all of these famous people are no longer living....Who would your five Dream Dinner Guests be, and why?

a. madame de pompadour - the ultimate dream dinner guest for her charm, elegance, knowledge and great hostessing skills
b. douglas adams - for his humour and intelligence
c. eleanor roosevelt - i've always wanted to meet her :-)
d. katharine hepburn - as long as she and eleanor don't go off in a corner to compare notes
e. baruch spinoza - i'd like to hear the conversations he would have with the others

6. Dancer or Singer?

it is my dream one day to be able to dance without embarrassment. i can, however, sing in tune, albeit in a key in which nobody else is comfortable

7. Do you have a hidden talent that you wish you could pursue, and why?

back to the drawing - i think there may be hidden talent there, and i'd like to find it. i'm never going to be charles schulz or alison bechdel, but i'd love to feel able to start trying.

8. If you were told you had only six months to live, How would you spend them?

i would spend them with the people that i love, and i would eat as much chocolate as possible.
