Getting to Know You in a Blink

The wonderful Swampgrrl is hosting Create a Connection's Getting to Know You Day. Her assignment? "Answer the following questions by intuition ... whatever comes to you immediately. If you spend more than 2 seconds on the answer, leave it blank and move to the next question."

1. You run into a friend who has just chopped off all her long hair (or suddenly has an Afro). What do you say?

I would definitely say, "You are beautiful!" because he or she is. And "Wow, what a big change! What inspired you?" And if I love it, I would say "I say I love it!"

2. You walk by a well dressed man with manicured hands who smells like a gin martini. He asks you for money. What do you do?

Snub him like only a downtown Torontonian girl can do.

3. Your brother or sister or best friend falls madly in love with someone you think is a jerk. What do you do?

Be as supportive as I can be at every turn. Be gentle and honest about my concerns if asked.

4. You get a terrible present from your husband, wife, girlfriend or boyfriend. Do you let it show?
In one instance when that happened, the giver wasn't present. I got angry and then I cried. So it showed, but they didn't see.

5. Who's your favorite Beatle?


6. You walk by a disheveled man wearing soiled & tattered clothes. He politely asks you for money. What do you do?
Usually say "sorry."

7. Skinny Elvis or Fat Elvis?

The Elvis of Change of Habit.

Next, go find an outrageous picture of your Elvis on the net and post it at the bottom of your answers. Be sure to give credit to the photographer.

This is the Elvis of #7. Have you seen him in sweats before?

Picture found here.
Note: The picture of my eye was taken by my husband. He's got a thing for crazy closeups.

I've seen sweaty Elvis, but not Elvis *in* sweats. Good answers, and I like the eye photo.

Fantastic photo Jamie and fascinating interests. I say sorry a lot too. I love that movie with Elvis and although some scenes are so dated, I don't care. It's the only movie of his I like, well, that I know of.

Jamie, I can't believe it took me so long to get back to you after you commented on my blog. (I did read your comment right away, but I'm apparentl a slacker about returning calls).

I'm so glad we are kindered spirits! I was worried that my corny wish about fulfilling my purpose would be considered... well, corny! But honestly, that's what I want - all I truly want.

Oh, and now I'd LOVE to hear the idea I sparked with my prayer=community comment. Do tell!

Love your eye picture. Reminds me of taking pictures of my children's eyes for Photo Thursday the first week.
No camera right now so I can't take picture for Thursday.
