Yes, I'm Still Here...

You must be wondering where I have gone. Things have been a bit crazy lately -- literally. This morning I woke up, saw the beautiful sunshine streaming through my windows and jumped out of bed ready to greet the day. I had a leisurely breakfast, returned some e-mails, watched the morning news, got ready for work ... you know the drill. When I got to work, some of the lights were still off, and most of the usual suspects were not there yet. Hmmmm.... very strange. I logged on, looked at the time on my computer, and it was 8:00 a.m. I don't start work until 9:00, and even at the best of times I am never there until about 9:03. It was the weirdest feeling! I was completely discombobulated. I guess that's what happens after four days off work.

Well, anyway, I have been crazy busy and haven't had time to post any new posts or visit any of your fabulous blogs, but here are my five interview questions for the folks who want to participate in the interview:

1. Have you ever been influenced by a work of art – music, painting, book – and if so, how?
2. If you were a chocolate bar, what type would you be?
3. What is your secret weapon to lure the opposite sex?
4. What, in your opinion, is your greatest accomplishment?
5. How many friends do you have on your Facebook account?

Silly questions, I know, but sort of fun. And now you post the questions and answers on your blog, and if other folks wish, you can interview them. It's a great way for everyone to get to know each other.

I'll be back soon...

Nice photograph, Jo!
I've had dreams that I would do something like that. What a weird feeling that must have been!

Bagman and Butler said...

Thanks for the questions, Jo! I will make them the subject of a blog in the next couple of days.
And it really is a lovely picture of you. At least Butler and I think it is lovely. Bagman, not surprisingly, thinks you are very hot. Fact is, I don't think he's wrong...inappropriate, but not wrong.

I don't think it's been too long since your last post. Maybe I've been out of touch. I love the picture too!

You look pretty in the photo Jo. I'm glad you had such a lovely break you lost all track of time....what could be better :)
Have a Wonderful Day!

Nancy said...

Love your scarf. I have done the very same thing - arrived at work an hour early - it is really a weird feeling.

Patsy said...

First of all, what is *your* answer to item #3?


Jo said...

County Girl, it was truly one of the weirdest experiences I have ever had!

Butler and Bagman, I will check your blog for your answers. And thank you for the compliment. :::blush:::

Arley, I haven't had time to visit all you folks, but I will soon. :-)

TheChicGeek, my gosh, yes, I totally lost track of time, and even what day it was! Phew!

LoverOfLife, isn't it just the strangest feeling? Like -- where was I!?

Lorne, hmmmm.... let me think, let me think.... hmmmm.... I don't think I have a secret weapon, sadly. *heh*

Russell said...

I will answer your questions right here, right now! Heh! I won't take long!

I was influenced by a movie - The Music Man (right here in River City, Iowa!!). When Robert Preston, aka Professor Harold Hill, hands Ronnie Howard that new cornet I knew then and there I wanted to play the cornet! And... I did! Well, it was a trumpet but close enough!

If I were a chocolate bar, I would want to be one that was .... not yet eaten!

Secret weapon to lure women? Heh!!

My greatest accomplishment? Seriously, being the father of my daugther.

Facebook friends? None! I had one (You!) but I terminated my Facebook account as I never used it and did not want my daughter to see my face on it!! Heh!!

Take care.

Will be answering the interview soon. Those are fun questions!

I think when the weather gets nice, things get more hectic because everyone's out and about! No one had time for blogging!
