Know & Tell Friday ~

Question 1
I can’t bear the sound of_________.

A smoke detector going off when there isn’t a fire. Ouch hurts the ears. We have one that goes off when the bathroom gets steamy.  I also can’t bear the sound of someone being criticized without mercy and love.

Question 2
I would love to time-travel back to_________.

My husband says he’s really reluctant to go back to the age before the flush toilet.  :0) But he doesn’t have a blog so I guess I better answer this one. I would like to go back and sit in on an Inklings evening at The Eagle and Child (Bird and the Baby). It would be fun to hear Lewis and Tolkien read from their works in progress.

Question 3
Shop alone, shop with mom, or shop with friends?
If I’m doing serious shopping I prefer to be alone. A fun shopping day at Goodwill I like to share with my loved ones…

Question 4
Worst movie ever?
Oh this is an easy one for me. Ishtar hands down is the worst movie ever. I think Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty were in it. From the 80’s. There have been many lousy movies but I don’t watch many to be able to judge them.
Question 5 (More of a poll)
Have you ever had your heart broken (by the opposite sex…not by a family member, or close friend)
Oh yes, it was high school, when I thought I was in love, and I was dumped. Thank God from whom all blessings flow, that I was dumped….

Bonus Questions
Question 6
In what area of your life have you felt the most judged (by others or even self condemnation)
My verbal communication skills have been a challenge for me. I do a lot better with writing my thoughts. So when I share deep thoughts or feelings verbally and it comes out wrong I feel the most vulnerable and judged.

Question 7
(relates to number 6) Are you now free from that judgment, and how did you get free if you are?

Over the years I have learned to let people know about my challenge verbally. This has helped them be more patient in letting me express myself more clearly.

What is one new way you could be a blessing to your pastor (or other ministers) this year? I think the most effective way I can bless my pastor and other ministers is to pray for them faithfully and let them know that I am praying for them.

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.

  1. I loved your answers and I need to go check out that Goodwill in Bellevue! The Goodwills here in the south end are dinky compared to the one you pictured!
    Happy Friday…

  2. If you think Ishtar is the worst movie ever, then you obviously haven’t seen Glitter, any Adam Sandler movie,
    any Rob Schneider movie, any Steven Segal movie,
    Waterworld, Catwoman, Sextette, Gigli, White Chicks,
    Showgirls, Son of the Mask, Lawnmower Man I&II, Ed,
    Kazaam, Bolero, Anaconda and the list goes on and on.
    There’s easily thousands of movies that earn the “worst
    ever movie” title way before Ishtar.
