In case we didn't bore you enough yesterday and you're coming back for more, here we are with answers to more of your burning questions. However, none of them will be who was in the big house. Mums the word on that.

These are for both of you...
Biggest learning experience of your life?
Sassy in Red here :)
Hmmm, good questions. Biggest learning experience of my life is that it is better to be open and honest regardless of my fear it might hurt someone. I kept my true thoughts and feelings inside for so long that they started spilling out. It was stupid really, especially since I'm a believer in being very honest. And even with criticism of my photographers. If I like them I'm so afraid I'll hurt their feelings when I tell them I need something better, but if I wasn't honest with them about their work that means I've given up on them. I'm not giving them the opportunity to get better or learn. So its unfair for me to keep silent.
Honey Bunch: I think I'm in the midst of it. It began when Sister Big had the Come to Jesus with me. I'm learning a lot about myself now. It ain't always pretty.
Optimist or pessimist?
Optimist...or realist...or pessimist. lol. I used to be realist leaning toward pessimist so I could be pleasantly surprised when things work out right. But as things kept working out in my life...I just turned into an optimist. Even when things go badly I feel pretty certain that it will get better.
Something HUGE you want to achieve in 2008?Something HUGE. Well...I would like to discover my real purpose. And I know some people don't believe you have some great huge important thing you're supposed to do in life, and maybe for those people that is true. But not for me. I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to do something...just not sure what yet. I have an inkling, but I'm still pretty unsure.
Honey Bunch: I really want to launch my Christian Working Moms group.
Honey Bunch: I would by Tom's dream house, dream car, dream boat. I would pay for the college education for my nieces and nephews. I would give my brothers and sisters a chunk of change. I would make sure my parents were set. And then I would spend a lot of time doing work for places like Compassion International.
I don't think I have an ultimate dream destination. I would just want beautiful weather, beautiful scenery and amazing experiences. And lots of laughter.
Plastic Surgery can go either way with me. I think its about balance and when people go crazy cutting their body up trying to make it perfect, well, I think they need to figure out what might be wrong inside. But I'm def not against it. Extreme Makeover, those people's lives were changed so much by having stuff done. For myself, I don't know, I used to think I wouldn't but then I had kids and everything got really saggy. So I'm neither Yay or Nay.
Honey Bunch: I don't have an issue with plastic surgery. Except for when people do weird crap to make themselves look like a lioness.
Some "weirdos" in our church wore prairie dresses, but most didn't. We did wear dresses/skirts to church. There was no inbreeding but the ministers practiced a stern control over everyone. It was a lot of hellfire, brimstone and pounding of the fists. Women were certainly subservient and you were shunned if you married someone not in the cult. So most married within the cult, and some of those cult guys were downright strange. But HB will have better stuff to say on this, unless she wants to save it for a post. It really is her turn to tell a cult story.
Honey Bunch: No virgin sacrifices or storing of guns. Serious mental/emotional/financial control.
Honey Bunch: Oh Mindi. Don't hate on Kelly. She was a tramp for awhile, I agree. But I still love her. And although having Dylan dump her at the wedding would have been interesting, I would have been devestated if that was the final scene. You have no idea how excited I am about the new spin off.
Jen of A2eatwrite said...Honey Bunch: I don't know if I can really choose three favorite books. I love to read and I am so so sad when a book ends. It really feels like a loss sometimes. To have to choose three seems unfair to the others. I just can't play favorites.
I've been thinking about this question a lot. I think what I'd most like to retain is more eloquently said by Margaret Mead, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." If I can remember it IS my responsibility to try to make the world a better place in any way I can, then I think I would be satisfied. I don't ever want to fall into the ignorance is bliss camp.
Honey Bunch: I have never read a Harry Potter book in my life. (Ducking under my desk) I have the Bible in our sidebar because it's such a great version. It's Max Lucado's and it's written in an easy to read and understand format with little "helps" on each page.
I think book banning is silly. If a book is age/maturity/values appropriate, let the kid read it. But it should be the parents decision and no one else's.
Honey Bunch: I love fun, sassy skirts. If money was no object, I would probably choose something from Boden. I also love J. Crew. I'm a simple girl. Here's some stuff I dig.
Movies: Practical magic, A Far off Place, Last of the Mohicans, Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion and Smoke Signals. All movies I've seen a bazillion times. Foods: part of me wants to be practical and have live chickens and cows for milk and eggs. But I know that isn't what you mean. So I'd say Tortilla chips and Pico de Gallo (is that one, or two?), an Asian Chicken wrap from Olga's kitchen, Cookies and Cream ice cream and a big salad with some chicken breast, garbanzo beans, sunflower seeds, croutons and full fat ranch. I'll burn that all off building shelter and fishing for food. People: Well, I'd have to say my two boys and JimmyEW, my sister HB because we are pretty funny when we're together and because I'm afraid of her, and my best friend Danielle.
Honey Bunch: Oh, this is funny. I was dreading this question all set to have my feelings hurt and left off the island.
Books: I would take four newly released books by any of my favorite authors and the Bible because it's so dang interesting.
Movies: Best in Show, Fargo, Baby Boom, Dirty Dancing, Castaway.
Foods: Southwest Salad, Southwest Egg rolls, A yummy sandwich with lots of meats and cheeses and veggies, Carrot Cake and Diet Coke.
