Friday Fives - If you're happy and you know it...

Post by buffettbride »

1. What's missing from your life?
Mostly time. Just flies by so fast. There's a lot of things on my to-do list and they never seem to all get done. Of course, more money, a nanny, a housekeeper, and a driver :wink: would help too. :lol: Other than that, basically the resources to travel more would be very nice.

2. Do you like to get drunk?
Yep, but I really don't do it that often. I have issues with being able to relax so I've recently implemented self-imposed beer drinking on Fridays. :lol:

3. Have you ever kissed a stranger?
Uhhh huhhhh. But I also guess it would depend on what you consider a stranger. Not any random person on the street, but definitely someone who I had barely met and definitely didn't know.

4. Do you smoke?
Yep. About a pack of Camel Lights a day. :-?

5. What makes you happy?
Lots of things. :D Knowing when I've made someone smile or laugh. Seeing my kids smiling and laughing and having fun. This is really corny, but seeing hubby on Xmas morning, 'cause he's just as bad as the kids. :lol: Hangin' out w/ my BN friends (virtually or in real life). Knowing that there are things in this world that do make me feel happy.

more money would be nice... a few extra hours in the day too.... my life is pretty good right now... I do need a job though.. it might help with the money thing

2. Do you like to get drunk?
I like to get buzzed... not drunk... I don't like the feeling of losing control.. also, the hangover the next morning is the pits

3. Have you ever kissed a stranger?
I have kissed someone I barely knew... basically first name basis only type thing.. not a complete stranger

4. Do you smoke?
Not anymore... I did in high school

5. What makes you happy?
thats a tough one... lots of things make me happy...Mike.. knowing that he is there makes me smile every morning. The is also nothing like holding a baby close to you and smelling that baby smell. Eeyore... eeyore makes me happy... and chocolate... ok so I could go on and on and on...

1. What's missing from your life?
A restaurant.
I have a good job, but thanks to the city, we can't get the doors to the place open!!!


2. Do you like to get drunk?
Drunk? Eh. Intoxicated? Yes. There's a difference between having fun drinking, and being drunk.

3. Have you ever kissed a stranger?
One of my current best friends, first time we ever met, we locked lips. Then introduced ourselves.

4. Do you smoke?
Hell, no. Allergic.

5. What makes you happy?
Don't know where to begin. I live life to experience new things, see new places and meet new people. These things give me joy, but what makes me happy? Crawling into bed next to Peggy every night.

1. What's missing from your life?
Not sure how to put it....let's just say I have not yet gotten to where I want to be....so that is missing.


2. Do you like to get drunk?
Falling down sloppy drunk? No. Nice relaxing tipsy/buzz....yeah.

3. Have you ever kissed a stranger?
In my youth.

4. Do you smoke?
Not just no, but HELL NO. Never have, never well...hate it. I've watched too many people die because of those things.

5. What makes you happy?
Quite a bit.....it would be easy to say what makes me unhappy.
Well I’m a tidal pool explorer
From the days of my misspent youth
I believe that down on the beach
Where the seagulls preach
Is where the Chinese buried the truth...

1. What's missing from your life?
Nothing. I have friends, family, good health, a peaceful soul and a happy heart. Anything else is just icing :D

2. Do you like to get drunk?
Drunk, no. A glass or two of red wine to relax, yes.

3. Have you ever kissed a stranger?
Not since my early twenties

4. Do you smoke?
Quit in January

5. What makes you happy?
Sharing time with friends and family; a good laugh; a good cry; a sunset; watching couples and families on the beach; memories of Steve; driving with the windows down and my hair whipping around my head; a bubble bath.

[quote=]1. What's missing from your life?
Since Keets and 1994/96 amassing over $23,000 in after insurance medical bills, everyday has been a struggle for us. We keep thinking one more check, one more month and we'll be over it. But instead its one more muffler, one more set of tires, one more water heater. We are missing the comfort zone we once had. And I hate saying no to the Keets just because something cost money.


2. Do you like to get drunk?
I am not necessarily proud of it, but I have been know to get drunker than most any human should. I can't really tell you the last time I was stammering drunk. OK, the auction dinner in January. I like a good buzz, don't really like stoopid any more

3. Have you ever kissed a stranger?
Thats what bars are for, right (ancient history. Not since at least 1982

4. Do you smoke?
I am cheap. I quit when the cig's in the bar/restaurant I ran jumped from 45 to 55 cents a pack.

5. What makes you happy?
Hearing my kids when they get the uncontrollable giggles. Sticking a wedge two feet from the cup. A scotch on the rocks with Jimmy's "Ballads" CD and a fire going. Every single night when my littlest says "Good night Daddy, I love you, don't let the bedbugs bite" hearing recordings of Harry screaming "Cubs Win, Cubs Win" All night wonderful stuff with my wife and knowing I have done everything, everyway she wants. The sound of bat meeting ball. The sound when my driver hits that little white ball perfectly. The sound of my Moms voice, when her Grandkids are on the phone with her. The look in my oldests eye when she nails something (sports, homework etc it doesn't matter) The smell of just about anywhere in the south, after a rain, in the spring when the azalea's are in bloom. That my Dad went out of his way in his final weeks to tell me he was proud of me and my family[/quote]

1. What's missing from your life?
Truthfully, nothing. Except perhaps the ability to accept that everything's OK and allow myself to be satisfied with that.

2. Do you like to get drunk?
Define "drunk". I'll go for buzzed or maybe even comfortably numb.

3. Have you ever kissed a stranger?
Stranger than what?

4. Do you smoke?
Nope (although with enough friction, I do smolder a little)

5. What makes you happy?
Warm sunshine, cool breezes, good food, hearty laughter. (with some occasional gratuitous nudity thrown it!)

1. What's missing from your life?
Not much is missing, I am overly blessed. Other than what everyone feels...lack of time. I wish I had more time to do more for others...to do more for myself. But as I think about it...that is probably just a cop out because I do make time for what is really important most of the time...maybe I just need to figure out what is eating up my time that I can stop doing.

2. Do you like to get drunk?
yes...but to a point. I don't like to be out of control or regret any of my actions...but I totally enjoy cutting lose and feeling uninhibited. I hate hangovers though.

3. Have you ever kissed a stranger?
After a brief conversation...yes

4. Do you smoke?
NO, never have

5. What makes you happy?
Lots of things make me happy. Sounds corny, but making other people happy and making a difference in this world is right up there on the top of the list. I feel valued when I can help and give back. I have so much, so maybe giving to others makes me feel less guilty about that.
My husband makes me very happy...even after 18 years, he still gives me butterflies. My kids are the joy of my life...getting better all the time.
Achieving a goal makes me very happy!
