Saturday 6

Saturday Six – Episode 42

Stockfresh

Here I am with a set of questions. Yes, I know I’m posting these much later than normal, and for those of you like Mrs. L, who was kind enough to E-mail me and tell me that she can’t get her Saturday started without the Saturday Six, I apologize for my tardiness. I had to get my car inspected early this morning, and merely searching for a station that would do it without making me leave the car over the weekend was an ordeal. (“Think about this,” I told one of the technicians. “If you can’t do the inspection today, and you’re closed tomorrow, you won’t touch my car before Monday. Why would I leave it here all weekend?” Not surprisingly, he had no rational answer.

Chris was first to play last week. Congratulations, Chris!

There were also a few first-time players for last week’s set of questions: be sure to visit the journals of Rachel, Brionna, Tony, and CourtneyLee and welcome them to the group!

Want to join in on the fun? 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! If you don’t have an AOL journal, you can still play, but of course you’ll at least need an AOL screen name, which you can get for free with AOL Instant Messenger, to be able to leave a comment here. (And if you’re playing for the first time, please be sure to say so in the comment!) Enjoy!

1. Who is the first celebrity you recall having a crush on?

2. What was your favorite amusement park ride when you were young?

3. If you could change your name (first or middle but the name you go by), would you, and if so, what would you change it to?

4. Go to http://kabalarians.com/ and take the “First Name Analysis” test. Do you agree with what the site comes up with?

5. Other than Johnny Carson, which former talk show host’s tape archives would you most like to visit, and why?

6. READER’S CHOICE QUESTION #44 from Jessie: If you were in good health, would you donate a kidney to a friend who’s dying regardless of what your family’s opinion are and if yes or no, why or why not?

Thanks, Jessie, for a most difficult and thought-provoking question. And the rest of you should be sure to visit Jessie’s tribute to firefighter Richie Sclafani. I hope we will all keep in mind the sacrifice these people are willing to make for us every single day.

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


MY ANSWERS:
1. Dinah Shore. I used to see her daytime show every morning.

2. Probably tilt-a-whirl. I’ve never been much of a fan of roller coasters, but when I was a kid, my parents and I would all pile in to a single car. I still remember the sounds of all of us laughing as we were spun senseless.

3. I do like the name Patrick, so I doubt I’d change it, even though there are several names (Matt, Keith, Scott, and Ben, just to name a few) that I like as much if not better.

4. It says: “Although the name Patrick creates the urge to be creative and original, we emphasize that it causes a superior, interfering expression whose favorite expression is “I know.” This name, when combined with the last name, can frustrate happiness, contentment, and success, as well as cause health weaknesses or accidents to the head, worry and mental tension.

“Your first name of Patrick creates a serious, thoughtful nature, shrewd, efficient, and business-minded. You are one to make your own decisions, and not be influenced by others. You desire independence and freedom from the authority and interference of others. You are not overly ambitious, preferring instead to seek stable, settled conditions which are adequate to meet your responsibilities. You like to be your own boss and you are capable of handling responsibilities for others.”

Well, I certainly can’t argue with the “worry and mental tension” part. I’d like to think I’m creative and original. I do let myself get influenced by others at times, but I do make my own decisions ultimately. And the “not overly ambitious” part is definitely accurate. It’s made me do a bit of soul searching of late.

I’m just curious to see whether any other name comes up with the exact same response!

5. Mike Douglas. I still remember that “daisy” logo that his show used for so many years.

6. A terribly difficult question. This is a situation I hope never to find myself in, but then again, who would? I think I’d do it for a real friend if I possibly could. I would be terrified, but I don’t think I could look at myself in the mirror if I didn’t.
