Make a Joyful Noise – Day 13

30 day song challenge

Today’s prompt: A song you like from the 1970’s. Really? That’s not a prompt, that’s a library or bibliography. I mean seriously, I was in HIGH SCHOOL and a young adult in the 1970’s. I graduated high school, got married, got divorced, got married again, and had a child, moved over 1,000 miles 4 times. It was a busy decade and, let’s be honest, the music was awesome!

I have had a rather disappointing day. Visit with Dr. this morning did NOT go as I wanted and I’m filled with questions and frustrations. So, to snap myself out of my rather maudlin frame of mind, I thought I’d answer some of Teresa’s questions from the haunted wordsmith

Today’s Questions:

  1. Do you prefer to type, write with a pen, or write with a pencil?
  2. If you had to stay up all night, what is one thing that would keep you awake?
  3. Kermit the Frog – Muppets or Sesame Street (versions)?
  4. If you died in ancient Egypt, would your heart be lighter than a feather?
  5. Mythology: Greek, Norse, Roman, or another culture?
  6. What sport would you watch in person but never on television?
  7. If you had a tag line for your life, what would it be?
  8. How do you like your chicken (besides cooked)?
  9. If your kitchen could talk, would it have a horror story?
  10. If you could spend one day with any actor/actress where would you go and what would you do?
  11. What is your favorite museum to visit?
  12. What is the most exotic place you would like to see?
  13. Eco travel – would you be caught zip lining through the Amazon, sleeping in an ice cave in the North, or volunteering in the Galapagos?
  14.  What is your favorite flower?
  15. Do you like your birthstone? (If no, which month do you like better?)
  16. You struck gold, but it’s not your mine…what do you do?
