Is the paper money in your possession right now organized sequentially according to denomination and with the bills right side up and facing the same way?
Well, if I had any, it probably would be anally organized, just like that. I can’t remember the last time I carried cash. If I need it I find an ATM. Almost every job I’ve ever had has involved processing payments by cash, credit and debit cards. I admit it has always annoyed me to have to straighten out the bills in a cash register, turning them all in the same direction. It’s just so much easier to avoid mistakes when things are all neat and tidy. Unfortunately, I had a co-worker for years who didn’t understand that concept and spent a lot of her time alternately misplacing and then looking for things. For a long time I made an attempt at helping her to stay organized, but it wore me out and I gave up.
I’m not saying there aren’t areas of complete chaos in my life. Like some of my kitchen cupboards for instance. But that’s why cupboards have doors which close to hold things in place. Every so often I go on a crusade to sort everything out and add to my garage sale bins.
What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)
No favorites here, unless you count all the dogs that are well-behaved and belong to somebody else. Or the Starbucks dog which sits on a shelf in my bedroom and (with the help of a gargoyle) guards my junk jewelry. He’s kind of cute and very low maintenance. So is the gargoyle. I can’t remember why I have these things. Would you buy them at a garage sale?
If money was not an issue, would you go on a cruise? If so where would you go?
Yes, but not an ocean cruise where you can’t see land at all times. A riverboat cruise on the Rhône river from Switzerland, through France, to the Mediterranean Sea sounds like something I might like. Especially the part where I have the same room for the entire trip with no packing and unpacking every few days while still going different places and seeing different things. Or I could just watch a travel show on tv and use the money for something else. I hear all you travel lovers gasping in disbelief.
Would you dare to sleep in a haunted house overnight?
Sure. That sounds a lot less scary than being on the ocean. I’m a very sound sleeper so who knows what might go on around me while I’m oblivious to it all. Could be a big disappointment for the ghosts.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful for a lovely long-weekend visit with kids and grandkids. There was cake. Our movie theatre is within grandma-walking-distance so we went to see Paddington Bear. There weren’t a lot of choices – the other ones playing were inappropriate for young children with violence, crude language, and shades of grey. I won’t be spending any more money on Christian and Ana. Sponge Bob was one above that one on my list.
W goes to see the hip surgeon soon and will hopefully be put on a hip replacement list that is not ridiculously long. Different surgeons have different lists. What in the world would we do without lists? All organization would come to a grinding halt.
I’m looking forward to Spring. Although the chances of it arriving here in the week coming up are slim. That’s when we’ll have our garage sale, with everything all sequentially organized and right side up and facing in the same direction.
