Starting to get a hang of this link-up thing! I’ll get to more of my own posts soon, I promise!
This is week one of Kendra’s Answer Me This Link-Up – Yay!
In this Link-Up, Kendra asks a few questions, and we answer them – simple as that! So, here goes:
1. What time do you prefer to go to Mass?
I am a night owl, so getting up for an early Mass is just not in the cards at this house! Our current Mass time is 11 am, and I think that’s perfect for us.
2. Would you rather be too hot or too cold?
The logical answer would be cold, because you can always put something else on. You can’t always take something else off… However, I hate being cold. Really, really, hate being cold. So I guess I’m going to have to defy logic and say I’d rather be too hot.
3. How many brothers and sisters do you have?
I have one of each biologically, and I am the oldest. My sister followed me, and my brother brings up the rear. We are very different, but I love them both dearly. I also have two brothers and one sister by marriage. And I’m still the oldest. The next in order of age would be my step-brother; however, he dies a few years back. My other brother and sister are twins, and they were born the year I graduated from high school. Ok, now I feel old! Next!
4. If you were faced with a bogart, what would it turn into?
Ya know, I’m really not sure on this one. I think it could take one of several forms. A big hairy spider might be one… Or maybe Big Brother?
5. Barbie: thumbs up or thumbs down?
Definitely a thumbs down for me. I don’t see how Barbie gives our girls any sense of what it means to be a woman. I do see how unrealistic she is; and how her image gives our girls unrealistic expectations. Diva and I both love the American Girl dolls. Even better are the Saint Dolls from Behold Publications (Ecce Homo Press), I think. She has the St. Therese doll.
6. If someone asked you to give them a random piece of advice, what would you tell them?
I would say that love is a verb. It is an action, not a feeling. This is something I wish I had known several years ago; it would have saved me a lot of heartache.
We need to make the decision to love people every day, in both word and deed.
So that wraps it up for Week One of Answer Me This. Head on over to Catholic All Year to read answers from Kendra and her readers!
