Saturday 6

Saturday Six – Episode 102

In two more weeks, we will have completed the second full year of the “Saturday Six.” Time does fly when you’re having fun.

Last week, the first one to have fun with this weekly feature was Cat of “Sweet Memes,” who was first to play last week. Congratulations, Cat!

Here are this week’s “Saturday Six” questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your journal…but either way, leave a link to your journal so that everyone else can visit! To be counted as “first to play,” you must be the first player to either answer the questions in a comment or to provide a complete link to the specific entry in your journal in which you answer the questions. A link to your journal in general cannot count. Enjoy!

1. How confrontational are you in real life, and how does your real-life persona compare with your blogging persona?

2. Other than the food itself, what makes your favorite restaurant your favorite?

3. You buy an iPod: what’s the first tune you’re likely to put on it?

4. Take this quiz (if you haven’t already!): What’s the most important quality of your (ideal) significant other?

5. If you had to choose one or the other, which would you rather do: hear gossip or be the first to reveal some juicy piece of gossip?

6. READER’S CHOICE QUESTION #85 from Barb: If you had a magic feather (my Daddy Do carries several in his pocket) and this magic feather could make you unbelievably attractive OR unbelievably intelligent, which would you choose, and why?

If you have a Reader’s Choice question you’d like to see asked (and answered), click the e-mail link in my profile and send it to me.

1. I’m basically not confrontational at all, unless someone confronts me. I generally don’t “call people out” unless they start with me first. When blogging, I’d much rather agree to disagree and get on with things, but if someone has something malicious or dishonest to say about me, I’ll always reserve the right to respond. Generally, when I go into “attack” mode, it’s to attack ideas, not people. But if I’ve been singled out by someone, particularly someone who distorts what I’ve said to a ridiculous point just to ridicule, you can bet I’ll have something to say about that.

2. The people who own it. I know them personally, and they’re great people who believe in being honest, working hard, and treating everyone with respect. Those sentiments permeate every part of the dining experience.

3. “Someone Else for One Day” by Gabriel Mann


Kindness is most important in a boyfriend/girlfriend. You want someone who will go through everything with you – the best moments and the worst, and all of those other moments in between. You love to be able to say anything to your partner, and have them say anything to you. You are able to be extremely close with your partner for that reason.

5. I’d rather hear it than repeat it. Being a southerner, I do like to know the “dirt” on people, not because I can then have “ammunition,” but because it interests me to know the things that make those around me tick. Knowing a piece of gossip doesn’t automatically mean that you must spread it.

6. I’d choose unbelievably intelligent. In my mind, intelligence is one way in which a person is attractive.


  1. Hi Patrick 🙂

    Here is mine… 🙂

    1. I am not a confrontational person, which is not to say that I never feel passionate about something. As for my “real life persona vs my blogging persona” I am exactly the same.

    2. The service is wonderful, and the food is prepared the same at each visit. Also, the music is fun.

    3. “Here Comes The Sun,” by the Beatles.

    4. “Kindness”

    5. Sorry Patrick, I can’t think of an ocassion where I would have to do either…you know? Other people’s business are their own. Golden Rule and all.

    6. Beauty is skin deep, but dumb goes straight to the bone. Give me brains please. Sigh.

  2. Ummm, Patrick… have you ever noticed that when we take those silly quizzes, you and I always come up with the same results? LOL.
