1. On a scale of 1-10, how superstitious are you, honestly?
I use to be but not much anymore ~ maybe a 1!
2. Julius Caesar is quoted as saying, "I came, I saw, I conquered." Which circumstance or experience of yours does this saying best describe?
I certainly do that when I buy a new car! Well I did have to do my aunt and uncles will after they passed away. I had no desire to do it but I had no choice so I guess I came, I saw, I conquered. Hope I never have to close an estate ever again!
3. If I peeked in on your day like a mischievous little leprechaun, at what time would I most likely find you blogging?
From 7 AM until I am done. At least six to eight hours.
4. Re springing forward for Daylight Saving Time, is there anything you've ever been really early or really late for?
I can't think of anything. I'm pretty good at being on time.
5. What are you most looking forward to concerning Spring?
I like the longer evenings of daylight and all the beautiful color of the flowers.
6. Shamrocks are the national flower of Ireland and are picked on St. Patrick's Day and worn on the lapel or shoulder. Do you wear green on St. Patty's Day?
Not usually. I guess I have worn a pin, I think it belonged to my mother, I should look for it!
7. One of Caesar's assassins, Casca, said, "But, for my own part, it was Greek to me," which of course means he didn't understand something. Probably his own lines in the play. Anyway, what is something that is "Greek to you," something incomprehensible or indecipherable?
Well that is a long list for me but I will simply say that HTML codes are crazy to understand!
8. Is March behaving more like a lion or a lamb where you live?
It started out like a lion but has been pretty good lately.
9. "An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later." -Winston Churchill. If you had one extra hour per day every day, what would you do with it?
Well if the hour was given to me and I had to do something that I normally don't do on a regular basis, I would read.
10. Legend says that every Leprechaun has a pot of gold hidden deep in the Irish countryside. Aside from real gold or money, what material item would be in your dream pot of gold?
A Mercedes Benz
11. "The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you." Robert Louis Stevenson. Look around you right now and tell us about something essential or beautiful very near you that you take for granted every day.
I don't really take it for granted because I appreciate my home with a view but for almost a year now I sit in my office and blog most of the day. I should be outside each day loving what God has laid before me. (when I smoked I was outside allot enjoying the view and the cigarette)
12. Just for a bit o' fun, click here and then report your Irish name. Mine is "Zoe O'Sullivan." I love it!
My name is Fidelma McKenna (it's kind of funny, my best friend is a McKenna, I have to tell her about my name)
How adorable are these girls?
Don't mean to bring you all down down but I feel like sharing a moment from my past with you. Twenty-nine years ago today I remember standing outside the funeral home watching the people outside a pub laughing and having a good time celebrating St. Patrick's Day. It was the night of my Mothers wake. My son was just 3 and my daughter was 10 months old, I wish they could have known her. Nine months later my husband left me.
