The Rock 

From the Wednesday Mind Hump - Week 31 meme:

August 11th is Alcatraz Day which commemorates the arrival of the first prisoners in 1934 to be incarcerated on Alcatraz aka The Rock.

Let's warm-up . . . using the letters . . . T-H-E-R-O-C-K list seven material things (try to think of something other than your computer for "C") that would make you miserable if they were taken away from you.

Telephones, more specifically, my cell phone;

Harley-Davidson motorcycle:

Enough $$$ to live confortably:

Refrigeration (love that convenience!);

O*P*I nail polish (Vampire State Building and Chick Flick Cherry);

Clinique products - make-up and skin care; and

King-size bed with lots of fluffy pillows.

Warmed up?    Okay ... let's break free and hump like we just don't care!
This week a getting to know you hump with a crazy twist.    Ready?

01.    If you could read ANY person's blog (living or dead), whose blog would you love to immerse yourself in?

A.  Vincent van Gogh, my favorite artist, and a very misunderstood soul.

02.    Mattel decides to make a Barbie-like (or Ken-like) doll of you -- what would be the most important accessory or accessories they would absolutely have to package you with in order to portray your lifestyle?

A.  A leather-bound Franklin Planner, several blank composition books, a 35mm camera, loads of B&W and color film, lots of pens and pencils, a cell phone, and a micro-digital recorder.

03.    It's been said "The eyes are the windows of the soul."    If your eyes were truly a window into your soul and your character traits were represented by objects, what things would people see when they gazed through your windows and what would those things represent?

A.  A Victorian parlor, filled to the brim with all sorts of wonderful treasures and comfortable, well-worn, furnishings - these would all represent my comfortable, easy-going nature, my love of life, my sincerity, my strong friendship and loyalty, and my acceptance of things (people) no matter what they might look like.

04.    We've all said it, we've all done it ... said OOPS that is.    What was your most memorable OOPS?

A.  A few people know of most "infamous" oops.    Suffice it to say, it involved four police cars, a truck filled with public works employees, lots of flashing lights and blaring sirens, and a standing ovation.

05.    Cave drawings -- the blog of the caveman.    If we drew pictures on our walls what sort of scrawling might we see on your walls?    Want more fun?    Actually draw, scan and post your "cave drawing".

A.  My scrawlings would depict my perceptions of how I view my life and business, and would look like this:

current mood:    Doin' the (Wed.) humpty-hump
current music:    The pounding inside of my head!

This Author's Profile

♪   I am

Susan Reno-Gilliland, known as "Miss Kitty," an Irish lass, a true Southern Belle; a writer, photographer, animal-lover, dreamer, stargazer, totally tangled (or is that entangled?) in relationships, slightly obsessive iNFp with stories to tell!    . . . (fascinated by forensics, human behavior, pushing all the right buttons of men I find interesting, and seeking utterly-sweet revenge without any repercussions.)     I am a Friday's Child.    Friday's Child is loving & giving.
