Patrick's Saturday Six, Episode 87

1. You're producing a school program for the holidays and you learn that there will be major objections if you include in your musical selections the traditional Christmas hymns that reference the "true meaning of Christmas." Assuming that there are secular tunes (like "Frosty the Snowman") already included in the program, what do you do with the hymns? Do you allow them to go as is, do you use the melody and rewrite the words, do you include as many pieces of music from other religions as possible, or do you remove all but the secular songs? I’d remove all but the secular songs.

2. What percentage of your Christmas shopping is done at this point? When do you expect to have it finished if you haven't already finished? We’ve drawn names this year, and I still have to buy the present for the person whose name I’ve drawn, and I still need to shop for Xander. I expect to finish up next weekend.

3. What was your favorite board game to play as a kid? Is it still your favorite now? I loved Monopoly; my favorite these days is Scrabble.

4. Take this quiz: What famous artist should paint your portrait?
Salvador Dali should paint my portrait. I love to think about the world in a different way then everyone else. I’m very ambitious, and I like strange things. I am curious about everything and love to learn.

5. How accurate is this quiz's description of you? Very accurate!

6. If you could go back in time and have one more picture taken with a deceased loved one, who would you select and why? I’d select my mother, because the only photo I have of just the two of us is the snapshot above from when I was 5 years old.

Judi, I love the picture of you and your mom, too darn cute! I also would be painted by Salvador Dahli and love scrabble!


Melissa said...

Judi,I love the picture of you with your Mom. I think there is a picture of me somewhere with jeans and Mary Jane's too! What were they thinking? lol

What a shame that you don't have more pictures of the two of you together. Have you checked with older family members? I sure hope you find more.

Ok, the Mom picture is special. but Judi, you're not turning this into a meme journal, are you? You're too good a writer for that.
