Monday Meme

Questions are taken from here.  Yes, these are last week's questions.  It's all good...

1.  Describe your "good china," whether you actually own any or not.  

Before I moved out of my parents' house, I collected household stuff for awhile and stuck it all in a storage unit.  Don't laugh, but sometimes I liked to go to my storage unit and just look at it all.  Anyway, one day I happened to see a set of dishes on sale at a local store, so I purchased it.  When I brought it home, my mom said that I went on for days about how pretty they were.  I kept them at the house for several days so that I could continue admiring them before sticking them in storage.  Looking at them now, I think they're kinda ugly.  But they work, and that's all that really matters.

2.  When are you happiest?  

There are 3 times when  I'm happiest.  One of them is when I'm with Shiver and Chico, playing or cuddling, and I know they're happy by the excessive tail wagging.  I'm also happy when I can give them both a new toy that they love.

The second would be when I've just gone shopping and bringing all my shizz into the house.  I don't just mean grocery shopping, or having to buy a box of envelopes or something.  No, I'm talking about when I go shopping for things I really don't need, but just want.  Like a pretty blouse, or new shoes, or nail polish, a new plant, a book, or whatever else my little heart desires.  Sadly, I haven't been able to do this kind of shopping in awhile.  I love to carry it in from the car, spread it all out on the bed and just delight in all my goodies.

And lastly, I realized that I'm happiest when school is in session.  Just the other day, I was thinking about how much I've learned about the world in general from college.  Before I started, I thought that I was reasonably smart.  And now, I know I really wasn't!  I had a vague idea of the world at large, but never dreamed of how things all fit together.  I still have a lot to learn!

When are you the happiest?

3.  If you could turn into two people right now, what are the first two things you'd want to do?  

Well, one person would scrub my house down, while the other lounged around watching tv.  I don't care what the person doing the cleaning started with, as long as everything got done.

4.  Show and tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or tell a story if it reminds you of one.  
Kinda obvious what this is - a guy hang gliding amongst the windmills.  I've never gone hang gliding before, but it looks kinda fun!

Those are good answers, specially being happiest with Chico and Shiver - is there anything more lovely than dogs!
Spending money you don't have on things you don't need is one of life's great pleasures :)
