Speaking of Random Moments....

Susan, my sister from another mother has sent some interview questions that made me feel such a random range of emotions trying to answer them, I am almost speechless!

1. You wake up this morning and realize "this is the day I'm going to finally..." What is it that you've been putting off that you've finally found the strength to do? What's kept you from doing it this long? I'm (finally) going to do 2 things...brainstorm ideas for a Business Plan to open my night club, and do my research on first time home owners grants. I was just sick to my stomach today about a catastrophe at work, and then came home to sign yet another lease on my apartment (going into year 3). Given that these 2 events literally made me ill, instead of complaining, I would do something about the both of them.

2. Though you had the strong resolve to do what you've stated above, change can be hard. Who do you call when you're about to give up? Why? What do they do for you that motivates you to keep going? I call my friend T...she always has such sound advice and speaks to my spiritual being on a level like none other. I have always believed that she was placed in my life for significant reasons, and her objectivity and keep-it-realness has gotten me through a many a storm. She is a bit older and much wiser than I am and ALWAYS has the ability to see things in my situation which may not be apparent to me.

*Note, for the record, before calling T, I usually call upon God (prayer)...but you all know how I feel about discussing religion in detail...among other topics.

3. It's one of those gray days outside. Though you've tried really hard, you feel yourself getting a little down. Instead of trying to cheer back up you decide just to get good and depressed. What a) song do you listen to? b) movie do you watch? c) book do you read? a) "Open Up My Heart" by Yolanda Adams. b) "City of Angels" (Meg Ryan & Nicholas Cage). c) Those who know me know that I don't really read, but I did thoroughly enjoy "A Day Late and a Dollar Short" by Terry McMillan, and shed quite a few tears.

4. Alright, enough of that depressing shit. It's time to cheer up. What song makes you start tappin' your foot and feelin' better no matter what the mood? "Got to Give It Up" by Marvin Gaye!!!!

5. Did you just hear the knock at your door? Mr. Right has finally arrived! Describe him including: a) looks b) personality c) "hidden" talents d) what took him so damned long to show up? Susan, for the record, I. Heart. This question!!! a) He's between 6' and 6'4", beautiful smile, clean cut and shaved (unless there's a nice goatee), and smells like Heaven. b) He's smart, he has a great sense of humor, (I know it's a stretch but...) he's HONEST, compassionate, romantic, and open-minded. c) He has a nice "package," and knows how to take his time and do things right...and generally has the ability to put me in a state of paralysis when it comes to, well you know :) Aside from that though, he also knows how to make me smile and lift my spirits on the worst days :) d) First he was making sure that I passed the prerequisite...loving myself first. He also was waiting until he was sure I could handle actually having what I have longed for and prayed for and would totally be okay with the fact that I had to look no further!

Damn Tera, you made me want this man!..lol...

Q said...

What do you mean by package? Like a gift or something? I am so confused 'cause I think I want this man too, but only if he is carrying a really big package, like the size of a plasma tv or something...

Susan said...

These are great answers!! Dude, I want this man too...especially if he has a package AND a plasma tv..

NoRegrets said...

Nice.
And I'm sure God has sent T to do the speaking...

Tera said...

Belle~The whole time I was writing that, "Grrrrrrr" was all I could think to say in my mind!

Q~Sometimes, I just don't know about you!

Susan~As long as he's got the package...we probably won't have time for the plasma TV!! ;-)

NoR~I concur...you have just simply stated the VERY thing I've always stated since the day I met her!

Jefe said...

You'll probably get plenty of plasma from the package, no TV needed...

Tera said...

Jefe~Nice!

Nina said...

someone stole my Yolanda Adams CD. It wasn't you, was it?

Tera said...

Nina~Ha! Not a chance Missy :)

Fun interview. Sorry I'm late. Thought I'd already commented.

Tera said...

Fringes~Isn't it though! I have to keep re-reading the part about my man...whew!

TexInTheCity said...

I am visiting a friend in Tahoe next month and I told her that we are going to have to recreate the scene where Meg Ryan is riding her bike with her arms wide open...without the part where she gets hit by an 18 wheeler! LOL

Great interview!

Tera said...

Tex~Yes, withouth that part, please! That's the part where I always cry...that part and the part where N.C. asks his friend if it was him that came for her. Such a great movie

NoRegrets said...

I think you need to sign up for Namoplop or whatever the November blogging thing is...

Tera said...

NoR~LOL! Hrrm wonder if that's the actual name! I've given it a little thought...

Anali said...

I love that song by Marvin too and I really liked the movie "City of Angels."

Tera said...

Anali~Yes, Anali...it makes me shake my booty!

NoRegrets said...

So, you alive today? Funny how I get used to you commenting.

Tera said...

NoR~LOL! Yes, I'm alive...I had a meeting this morning :)

NoRegrets said...

OK, now it's been over a week since you posted. You have plenty to say in comments, so why not on your blog? Yes, I'm demanding...

Tera said...

NoR~I'll get right on that!
