Patrick's Saturday Six Down in Dallas Edition

1. When was the last time you looked your significant other in the eye and told him or her how much they mean to you?

I tell my children all the time.  They are the most significant others in my family.  And my girlfriends and I often say "Love you" when we hang up.

The OTHER significant others tend to wander in and out of my life depending on what medication I'm on.  [Tylenol PM is pretty strong you know.] The last one I said anything to that could pass for how much he meant to me -- in a good way -- was on the phone. 

Face to face I'm usually telling him how much he means to me in a bad way. Here's an excerpt from one heartfelt moment: "This is why I'll never get married again!! I hate these discussions." 

2. Which business do you have the longest continuous relationship with:  your bank, your auto insurance provider, your home telephone provider, your cellular phone provider, or your cable company?  How long have you been with them?

My bank, if you don't count being bought three times by other banks.  They just transferred me from one to another like I was on a bus.

3. What is the most embarrassing question you've ever been asked?

One of my girlfriends is two DAYS younger than I am.  She was watching me play a tennis match one day.  Afterward an acquaintance on another court came over and said, "Oh, is this your daughter?"  What are you?  BLIND?!!!  Okay, she's not ugly.  But geez, me neither.

4. You have the ability to snap your fingers and be instantly transported to one of three places whenever you wish to go there.  Which three places would you select as your destinations?

Hawaii.  London.  Quetico Provincial Forest.

5. Last week, the Reader's Choice question asked you to identify your favorite movie line.  Later this month, the American Film Institute will list the 100 Greatest Movie Lines of all time.  Which one do you expect to win?

"Go ahead, make my day." 

6. You are given the gift of an original oil painting by any famous artist.  What painting would you choose and why?

I know we're supposed to choose Rembrandt or somebody equally hoity toity, but I like children's art.  If I could, I would fill my house with paintings and sculpture done by kids.

I've got plenty of artwork and sculpture I could send you, done by kids, if you'd like, Mrs. L.  I think the littlest one could be persuaded to leave a handprinted mural on the wall of your choice, lol.

does working for a bank for 13 years count as a long term relationship ?
I find it more like a jail term .....id have done less for murdering the person who hired me hehe
Most embarassing question asked of me was "when are you due ?" after returning to work from the christmas holiday having eaten a little tooooo much .....never gone into that damned coffee shop across from the office since.
Contender for the film line to win has gotta be "i'll be back " everyone and thier granny quotes that one .
