The (Cyber) Bag of Weasels

bread and puppet

"About as much fun as a bag of weasels"...when I first saw this Irish adage, it made me think of the life of a writer: sometimes perilous, sometimes painful, certainly interesting. My paper journal has always been called "The Bag of Weasels." This is the Bag of Weasels' online home.

Long-A M-Type Thing from Tumblr

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
1: Could you go the rest of your life without smoking a cigarette?
Yes. Definitely. When I watched my Uncle Wodie die horribly from smoking-related complications when I was 14 years old, I swore never to smoke, I haven't. And I won't. And I think that nothing makes an attractive person look stupid like a cigarette hanging out of the mouth.

2: Are you single/taken/heartbroken/confused?
Taken. Perpetually confused over something.

3: What if I told you that you were pretty?

4: Ever been told “it’s not you, it’s me”?

5: Are you interested in anyone right now?
I'm interested in a lot of people. ... Oh! You mean "interested"! Yeah, in my husband.

6: What are you looking forward to in the next week?
Tomorrow is Friday. I am hanging out with my dance friends tomorrow night and an old friend and his wife on Saturday. Next week is a four-day week for the students with a Halloween party on Thursday (so, really, a three-day week).

7: Do you want to be single?
Hells no.

8: Did you go out or stay in last night?
Stayed in. Wrote. Watched the first half of a horror movie with Bobby that we'd seen already but I didn't remember seeing until about halfway in.

9: How late did you stay up last night?

10: Can you recall the last time you realized you liked someone a lot?
I suppose that depends on if you're asking like or "like." I realized that I like people all the time. (And dislike too, but that's another story.)

You know, I'm going to treat the word like not in a romantic sense going forward. Because although I suspect that's what was meant, it just seems silly to me since I'm no longer 14 years old.

11: Last three things you had to drink?
Tea. Water. Apple cider.

12: Have you pretended to like someone?
I'm a teacher. I pretend to like unpleasant people all of the time.

13: Have you ever told somebody you loved them and not actually meant it?
Hells no.

14: Honestly, has anyone seen you in your underwear in the past 3 months?
Ha. Bobby sees me in my underroos all the time, lucky man.

15: Is it hard for you to get over someone?
Every person I've been involved with romantically, aside from Bobby, I was relieved to be rid of.

16: Think back five months ago, were you single?
Lol. No.

17: What were you doing at 12:30 this afternoon?
Trying to get my sixth-period class to get their effing "Rip Van Winkle" classwork finished and turned in.

18: Hold hands with anyone this week?
Bobby and I hold hands all the time, even in our sleep sometimes.

19: Could you go for the rest of your life without drinking alcohol?
I'm a teacher and sort of a foodie, so probably not, for two very different reasons.

20: What would you name your future daughter?
I'm not having kids.

21: Do you miss anyone?
Yes. Always. I still cry sometimes over my Uncle Wodie. Normally, I miss my sister terribly (but she's in the States right now!) I miss family, friends, and students I've lost.

22: Have you kissed three or more people in one night?
No. I've probably been kissed by three or more family members, but I'm not a kisser myself. I certainly haven't kissed more than three people romantically in one night; I'm not that exciting.

23: Did your last kiss take place in/on a bed?
Yes, actually. I kissed Bobby goodnight last night.

24: Are you good at hiding your feelings?
I'm a teacher. Yes. Else I'd be fired pretty much every day. (Actually, those of you who read my teaching posts know I probably wouldn't be, actually. O.O)

25: Have you ever cried from being so mad?

26: Who did you last see in person?
I can turn around now and see Bobby making supper.

27: Are you listening to music right now?
No. I always forget to put music on! How dumb is that?

28: What is something you currently want right now?
To have my grading finished and entered into my gradebook.

29: What is the last thing you said out lot?
Errr ... something to Bobby, I'm sure. Oh! He asked me if I wanted one sandwich or one-and-a-half for supper, and I said, "One if you cut from the middle of the bread and one-and-a-half if you cut from the ends." Nothing's simple!

30: How is your heart lately?

31: Do you wear the hood on your hoodie?

32: Are you wearing socks?
Yes. Plain boring black ones with colorful shoes over top to mitigate the boringness.

33: What do people call you?
Dawn. Ree, Love, TT (from Bobby). Ms. W-T, Ms. WD40, Ms. W-B, Ms. W-Tizzle (from my students).

34: Will you talk to the person you like tonight?
Ah, there's that "like" again! Yes, I will talk to my husband tonight.

35: Are there any stressful situations in your life?
LMFAO. Yeah. My life is always one big ball of stress.

36: Who did you last share a bed with?

37: Did you do something bad today?
I made some snarky comments about the science teacher. Those of you who know of whom I speak know that that wasn't exactly bad ...

38: When was the last time a member of the opposite sex hugged you?
I think Bobby and I hugged this morning.

39: Do you get stressed out easily?

40: Will you sing today?
Probably. I'm sure I already have, much to the dismay of anyone around me.

41: Have you ever wanted to tell someone something but didn’t?
All the time. I'm a wimp about confrontation.

42: Who do you go to when you need to talk to someone?

43: Have you ever been taken to the emergency room in an ambulance?
No. I've never been to the emergency room, period! *touch wood*

44: What are you listening to right now?
Bobby frying something on the stove.

45: What is wrong with you right now?
I'm tired and have a pile of grading to do.

46: What is on your wrists right now?
The cuffs of my lovely brown cozy sweater.

47: Where did you get the shirt/sweatshirt you’re wea
My mom bought the sweater for me from J.C. Penney. The tunic top came on deep-discount clearance from Rue 21.

48: What do you like better: hot chocolate or hot apple cider?
Oooooh ... that's a tough question! Probably hot chocolate, by a nose.

49: Do you make wishes at 11:11?

50: Are you a good artist?
I'm okay. I'm a pretty decent calligrapher and illuminator.

51: Love really is a beautiful thing huh?

52: Do you miss the way things were six months ago?
Hells no. I am enjoying being a third-year teacher and having something like a life back. And being able to scale back to one grad class per semester.

53: Ever been on a golf cart?
No, but I wish I could say yes to this!

54: Do you have trust issues?
Eh ... kinda. I would say a more accurate description is that I assume that no one will really be interested in me. And so I tend not to reach out to people beyond acquaintanceship.

55: Ever stayed up all night on the phone, with who?
No, although Bobby and I used to talk for 2-3 hours a night during high school.

56: Do you own something from Hot Topic?
Yes, actually--I have some Nightmare Before Christmas stuff from there.

57: Do you use chap stick?
Of course. Do people not?

58: Have you ever slapped someone in the face?

59: Do you have a little sister?
Yes. My little sister is my best friend, along with Bobby.

60: Have you ever been to New York?
Many times--to the city only, though. I have distant family in upstate New York but have never been.

61: Think of the last person who said I love you, do you think they meant it?
That would be Bobby, and of course he did.

62: Have you hugged someone within the last week?
I've hugged Bobby many times. Hugged many students too!

63: What were you doing at midnight last night?

64: Have you ever regretted kissing someone?

65: Is there one person in your life that can always make you smile?

66: Were your last three kisses from the same person?

67: Have you kissed anyone in the last five days?

68: Would you rather sleep with someone else or alone?
With Bobby. He keeps me warm and is nice to have around if I have a nightmare!

69: Will next Friday be a good one?
Fridays are always good. :)

  • So many of those things assume one is a single and probably a teenager!
  • A lot of these answers were pretty amusing, especially ones related to your co-workers (I'm presuming #12 contains an oblique reference to them as well).
    • Actually, regarding the coworkers, #12 should probably say, "I work in an environment where I'm forced to interact with other purpoted adults. I pretend to like unpleasant people all the time." :D

      As it was, I was thinking of my students, although the vast majority of them I do like ... just not 100% of the time. I have to pretend when saying, "Dear, do you mind not rapping at the top of your lungs when every other word is fuck?"
  • Ha! You made me laugh several times.

    I'm tempted to do this, but it seems that many of my answers (to the "like" questions) would be "not applicable."

    57: Do you use chap stick?
    Of course. Do people not?

    Me! My immediate family doesn't, either.
    • Laughter is good! :D

      Me! My immediate family doesn't, either.

      Wow! What do you do for chapped lips? (I can't imagine living without lip balm in the winter!)
      • I drink a lot of water and have a tabletop fountain in my room for humidity (my knuckles crack and bleed otherwise). Chapped lips don't really bother me, though; if they appear, I take it as a sign I haven't drunk enough.
  • *g* I wonder what the teenagers creating these might be thinking of some of the answers those of our age give? The underwear question is simply hilarious. :o)))
    Loved your answers, particularly the kissing-and-boyfriend-related ones.
    • Probably they'd be like, "How boring, she's kissed, hugged, and had all romantic contact with the same one person." :D
