Here we go with another edition of questions. If you have a Reader’s Choice Question you’d like to see included, be sure to drop me a line!
Before this week’s questions, it’s time to recognize the first person to play last week. According to the rules, to be considered “first to play,” you must be the first one to either answer questions in the comment or post the link to the specific entry in which you’ve answered the questions. The first one to do that, for the second week in a row, was Betty, of “Of mini-paws and menopause.” Congratulations, Betty!
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. Do any of your friends, family or co-workers know about your blogs? For those that do, did you tell them or have they stumbled upon it by themselves?
2. How did you come up with the title of your blogs?
3. Do you prefer to have many projects going on at once or do you prefer multitasking?
4. Take this quiz (if you haven’t already!): What high school stereotype are you?
5. What was the hardest thing to master when you were learning to drive?
6. How well did you do with that one thing on your very first driver’s exam?

1. A couple of friends know and visit my blog, and I actually found their blogs online first and left a link to mine. Most of the people who read my blogs are those I’ve never met, but most of them are people I wouldn’t mind meeting. I wouldn’t have a problem revealing my blog’s address to my boss or co-workers, because I don’t write about that much work stuff, and certainly nothing that doesn’t belong outside of the office.
2. “Patrick’s Place” was a no-brainer. Not that creative, but it got the point across quickly. “A Stop at Willoughby,” my writing blog, is named after my favorite episode of the original “Twilight Zone.” “The Cross Examination,” my religious-issues blog, got its title from the name of a religious-themed talk show I wanted to do while I was a student at USC. That show never materialized, but I always liked that title. “Patrick’s Portfolio,” my photography blog, has a title that I thought was pretty self-explanatory. For this blog’s title, I chose ‘Weekender’ because it refers to people who like to take weekend vacations, and I like to consider this blog as a nice weekend diversion online.
3. I prefer to be in the middle. I do better when there’s a lot going on, but at the same time, too much multi-tasking makes me lose focus on everything!
4. As if there were any doubt:
5. Without question: parallel parking. I don’t parallel park in real life, unless there’s more than one space in a row that’s empty. Getting out of one of those spaces isn’t a problem. Getting in drives me crazy.
6. I actually failed the first time around specifically because of parallel parking. Whoever came up with that was just evil.
