Title: Getting to Know you...Getting to Know All About You!
Post by: Hisgirl on August 22, 2008, 11:05:14 am
Most of us have done this before, but there's a few folks here I would like to have a clearer understanding of who they are and such.

(hopefully with this information we can screen out those who are sitting in their underwear in the basement of a relative drinking cheap domestic beer and sorely needing a pedicure.)  Copy and paste your own answers. 

1. Name the countries or states you have lived in:

Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana in the USA

2. Name five foods that have to be in heaven or it won't be heaven.

Bacon, hot buttery yeast rolls, fresh Georgia peaches, baby back ribs and watermelon.

3. Name three people from anytime in history you would invite to dinner.

Benjamin Franklin, Jesus, and Brittany Spears (to straighten her little self out)

4. What would you serve at the above dinner?

Fried chicken, fried okra, sweet potato casserole with brown sugar pecan topping, sliced summer tomatoes, buttermilk biscuits with milk gravy (and the little chicken crispies) and banana puddin' for dessert.

5. What are your top three favorite movies?

Braveheart, Simple Twist of Fate, Fried Green Tomatoes

6. What was your most embarassing moment?

When I got locked out of my Hilton hotel room wearing a shortie tee-shirt and nothing else.

7. Are you happy or satisfied?

Satisfied.  (seems to encompass both)

8. Name three places you'd like to go.

Italy, Austria, and the big pearl jewelry show next February in Arizona.

9. What kind of vehicle do you drive?

Honda Accord and Dodge Ram diesel truck when I haul the horses.

10. What are your three favorite drinks?

Dr. Pepper, unsweet iced tea mixed half with lemonade, and rich guatemalan coffee with half and half.

11.  Do you live with people or pets and describe each.

My husband of 8 yrs works from home now and gives me stability...(I almost said solidness but that sounded sexual so I decided not to say it)  We have three dogs, two cats and I also have two college students, a boy & girl.  My boy is off at school and my daughter now lives/schools from home.  We also have two amazing young men attending ministry school living here.  So it's a full house!

12.  Describe the type of work you do.

I design pearl/gemstone jewelry.  I'm wanting to do something different but not sure what, just waiting on God for more ideas. 

13.  Who is your favorite cartoon character?

Oh yes!  I'd forgotten all about them!

The Roadrunner was a little ostrichy-bird-type-thing who went "beep-beep" as he chased the wolf-type-thing Wily Coyote and got him totally splatted in all the best classic cartoon ways - being blown up, running off the end of a cliff then trying to run back from mid-air, falling from impossible heights, being run down by trucks, having huge boulders land on him and bury him in the dirt.....

I love the way those old cartoons always end with everyone surviving the most extreme and nonsensical violence, ready to fight each other to the death the next week, and the next...and the next........

Yup, I forgot I DO like cartoons after all!  :D

It was the other way around.  Wily Coyote chased the roadrunner.  I guess he was supposed to be lunch, if he ever caught him. (http://www.hisgraceoasis.com/Smileys/default/grin.gif)

Most of us have done this before, but there's a few folks here I would like to have a clearer understanding of who they are and such.

(hopefully with this information we can screen out those who are sitting in their underwear in the basement of a relative drinking cheap domestic beer and sorely needing a pedicure.)  Copy and paste your own answers. 

1. Name the countries or states you have lived in:

California and Iowa

2. Name five foods that have to be in heaven or it won't be heaven.

Sushi (fo sho'), Lau Thap Cam (Vietnamese Dish), Salads (BIG salads, not those dinky sizes that wouldn't even satisfy a rabbit's appetite), Pizza (on wheat crust), and COOKIES! (http://aevac://www.hisgraceoasis.com/Smileys/default/th_TFRD323.png)

3. Name three people from anytime in history you would invite to dinner.

Jesus, George Washington and Beyonce (I SO dig her style of clothing and her personality)

4. What would you serve at the above dinner?

Yep, I'm guilty (or stupid), not too sure.

God knows what all those questions are :

MY name is Dave and when I was married 15 years ago I was a youth pastor with my ex wife. Those were the happiest times of my life - in material things we had nothing but in other things we had a lot. Regardless of your beliefs we had kids lying all over over house under the power of the spirit. We saw genuine miracles and salvations - not because my ex wife and I were "great anointed people" but because we always told the kids that came to our house that "we are all the same!". You know - I miss those days 10 years when I lived in an awful housing estate when (literally) our lives were under threat but we saw great miracles in our house.

Please pray for my ex-wife (Yvonne) plus my daughter (Sophie - saved at 3 and speaking in tongues at 4) that is 100 times more imortant than me.

Dave (thanks)

I will try and post a pic of Soph but technology sucks lol x

Srry tried for an hour but too goddamn complicated
