Questions That Need Answering

1. Can anyone tell me what good is there in having a corporate discount at a tire store, if the discount prices at the store are more expensive than the competitor's non discount price?

2. Place your bets early: Will the groundhog see his/her shadow next month?

3. Why in the name of the seven mad gods who rule the finance world, have they not figured out a fast track for assumable mortgages?

4. If the world were to end tomorrow, what plans would you have to scrap in order to prepare?

5. Where were you on the night of May 25, 1991?


6. What are the advantages to being you?

One answer I know for sure is #5. The night of May 25, 1991 I was in the hospital in labor waiting for Jake to FINALLY come. (He was born the next day 10 days late! Little bugger!)

One advantage of being me is that I get to read a lot of blogs.

I really like that last question.

cari- how convenient, that you just happened to be delivering a baby...hmmmmm.

kacy- read on.

c-jane- That really doesn't anwer the question though. Surely you could have at least reiterated some of what you've posted about yourself on your site?

1. It looks good on your resumé.

2. I will watch a Bill Murray at least once in 2008.

3. Get a fixed-rate mortgage while rates are down.

4. Growing old.

5. I was surely home sitting on the sofa because when one is 10 months pregnant with an over-ten-pound baby what else does one do?

6. I get to keep on thinking I'm right.

Lyle said...

compulsive- impressive. most impressive.

You answered all six. If I had a prize, you'd be the winner.

btw-we aren't the buyers, we're the sellers in reference to the third question. but that's another can of worms that I won't get into here.

compulsive writer said...

lyle, ouch! Best of luck to you with that can of worms.

Happy new year, Lyle! Hope y'all have settled in alright.

On the night of May 25, 1991, I believe I would have been sound asleep like any good little kid... or I was peeking round the corner of my parents bedroom sneaking looks at the sadly missed show Spitting Image.

And if the world were to end tomorrow I'd have to cancel church... That'd suck.

Keep well!

1.The same reason it costs the US government $162 for a hammer - you take profits wherever you can get them. (I know, spoken like a true capitalist)

2. No shadow seeing here in Montana.

3. because it's not 7, it's 13 and 13 is an unlucky number.

4.I wouldn't sleep in like I do to make up for all the rest of the real early mornings during the week.

5. I'm sure I was preparing to celebrate your 18th birthday. ;)

6. I get to be the Dogpatch's most under-appreciated resident.
