Stormy Weather-Saturday Nine

1) Do noisy storms scare you?
I love Thunder Storms when I am cozy in my house.  They are a little scarier if I am driving or outdoors when it happens. Now the dogs are another story....Totem will be under the couch and Gwennie will be under the bed...and not even food will get them out.

2) Mother Winters tells us Lena Horne was considered one of the great beauties of the 1940s. Whom do you consider one of today's most beautiful women?
Who is Mother Winters?  If I were a guy, I would want to hit on Charlize Theron. She is a classic beauty. Aha! Sam Winters...I should pay more attention.

3) Crazy Sam admits it -- there's a big bag of recycling she really should take out to the bin. Yet she's composing this meme. What should you be doing, instead of answering her questions?
Measuring and hanging my new curtains in the living room and dining room. I have only had them for a year.

4) Sam may be crazy, but she's not stupid and will never waste her money on Cialis, no matter how many unsolicited emails she receives! What's the most recent addition to your spam folder?
Engagement Rings

5) What was the last thing you cooked?
Dinner. I baked some Brussel Sprouts as the vegetables, it was good.

6) Do you remember the lyrics to your either your high school or college fight song? If so, please share a bit.
Thy stately walls dear Alma Mater, rise proudly in the Golden West......Inspiring all our sons with courage to meet each challenge and each test....To thine ideals we shall be faithfull, our loyalty will never die....We lift our voices now in tribute, to thee San Gabriel High!

7) "Samantha" is the feminine of "Samuel" and means "Listener." What's the derivation of your first name?
Kathleen.. Irish derivation of Katherine and it means pure. It was shortened to Katie when my dad would call me Katydid.

8) Are you following the NBA or NHL this year? If so, which team are you rooting for?
No, although I think it is interesting that the coaches are two Brothers on the
 opposing teams.

9) Gloves, umbrellas, sunglasses, keys -- which of these do you misplace most often?
I only use gloves in the winter and they usually fall out of my pockets and get lost. My umbrellas are all in the trunk of my car. Sunglasses and keys are usually what I am looking for as I leave the house.


  1. I think it's awesome that you remember ALL the lyrics to your fight song!

    PS Mother Winters gave us Samantha Winters, the hostess of our meme.

  3. Katherine is a pretty name - I've got many in my family - and so is Katie. As for the song...impressive!

  4. What a fight song! I had to ask my high-school age niece to check my memory of the school song. I had it right. Now it's stuck in my head.

  5. Samantha Winters is the winner :) Pretty name, too.

    Hugs x

  6. I hate to break it to you, but the two brother are for the superbowl on 2/3 and that is NFL (football). NBA is basketball and NHL is hockey.

    Otherwise, great answers.

  7. The dogs at my parents house do the same thing - hide under the bed or couch - when they're scared of something. If I had a daughter, I'd name her Katherine, too. I just love the name :D

  8. Hi Katie. I hope you're having a nice weekend. I like Charlize Theron, too, especially when she first appeared in the Hollywood movie, Mighty Joe Young. Fresh-faced and I loved her curls there!

  9. I TOTALLY almost put Charlize Theron on my blog, too!

  10. I was only afraid once during a thunder storm. The time between the flash and the bang was instantaneous and the phone kept on going "ding" for each lighting stroke.
