Hodgepodge Facebook Returns

1. What is something that bothers you if it's not done perfectly?
Having small children has helped me to mellow in this area.  Initially, how they made beds and set tables sort of irritated me...but now, I see it as their "best" and I'm happy with it.  When I tell them how happy it makes me...it increases my happiness!

2. Do you think a 6th sense exists? Explain.
I think women can have a kind of intuition about situations and people.  I've had "a gut feeling" about something that's proven best to follow.  Maybe that's the Holy Spirit guiding and protecting me...

3. Do you say your goodbyes slowly, quickly, or not at all?
The quicker the better...no crying!!

4. On a scale of 1-10, with ten being hot hot hot, what level of spice do you like in your food? What's your favorite 'spicy' dish?
Loverbrains and I LOVE spicy food...Our favorite places are Yats (Cajun/Creole), Mark Pi's (Asian), and Thai Spice...I probably choose around a 6-7....Loverbrains normally chooses 8-10.

5. What is one of your all time favorite commercial jingles?
"Rice a roni,  The San Francisco treat...*ding *ding!"

6. Plane, train, boat or auto...your preferred method of travel?
Plane...I love airports and air travel...I have never had a really bad flight...Well, there was one in Germany...small plane, fumes, turbulence...sort of scary...I block it out though!

7. What is something you take for granted?
Far too many things, I'm afraid.  "What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?"

8. Insert your own random *rant alert* thought here.
After much thought (and grumbling), I decided to give Facebook another chance.  
*gasp, I know, I know*

I created an entirely new (tricky) identity...and am being VERY selective in my friend selection.  The whole un-friending thing gives me issues...as does the blending of friend/association groups...BUT...it seems that I will be essentially cut out of everyone's life, baby pictures, news and networks if I don't use this social media...so, because I love people and think their babies are cute...*sigh* I hope you're happy.  

My blog is posting directly to it...that's sort of nice...in case I don't feel like checking it for a while.  

I do continue to have some BIG issues with it...Here's a few biggies...

I think married Christians should be careful...getting in touch with "old flames" is just that...playing with FIRE...just don't do it!  

I am NOT interested in a re-cap of "mean girls" from highschool or churches...DUH people!..everyone can read everything so don't talk about things you shouldn't.  Gossip is still gossip whether you type it or say it.  It still hurts!

I have friends from all walks of life...and I will hide some from general view (nice new feature by the way) cuz the groups offend each other.  I find it very interesting that generally it's my "worldly" friends that are crushed by the less than sensitive christian comments.  Don't burn other people's bridges to sharing the gospel with others.  Oui!  FYI--NO people group should be pushed off the face of the earth.  Hate the SIN...not the sinner!  Speak the truth in LOVE!


Thank you...I had to get that out!  I feel better now.  *phew*

Ahh, rice a roni-another one I'd forgotten about. I have my blog linked to my facebook too. I'm sometimes surprised by who is reading : )

I can't tell you how much I love that!

I agree about perfection and mellowing. And intuition/leading.

I'm not much for spicy things, though I love Mexican food.

I do remember the Rice-a-Roni jingle! Funny, I don't see commercials for that any more, though we do still use it.

I don't really like to travel. The one advantage of a plane is that it's faster and the bathroom is right there -- no worrying about needing to make a stop. :-) I'd like to take a cruise some day. We have friends who do often and they love it.

Facebook has been a great way to keep in touch with family and friends and what's going on in each others' lives. I "friended" way too many people at first and my wall was all cluttered up with stuff I was not interested in: I'm much more selective now. The "hide" feature does help.

I'm with you on facebook, even though I am on it way to much. I have issues having everyone on my personal page, so I limit what I put on. It is probably good that I do that or I would definitely get into trouble. I don't have trouble deleting people thou. I recently removed some people from my friends list that made me become someone I don't want to be.

PS I love the Rice A Roni song too.

OH WOW..."What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?"...talk about eye opener. I don't even want to think about what it would be like if that came true! Really goes to show how much we really do take for granted...but I'm not sure there would be enough hours in the day to thank God for EVERYTHING he has blessed me with :)

I don't expect perfection from my kids. Their best is good enough :)

Enjoyed reading your answers!
