Today's Question(s):

Do you wake up easily in the morning or require coffee, exercise, or something else to get you going?
Just coffee - two or three cups (small cups) before my brain switches on. Not exercise - DEFINITELY not exercise!

Do you feel younger or older than your current age?
Mentally I feel younger - I still feel 25. Physically I feel older - have found just in the last two or three years, that my physical ability to do things has decreased substantially. That may have something to do with what I said above about exercise!


Last thing you were anxious about?
Anxiety's not really my thing.


Bonus Question(s):

Tell me something you are planning to do today.
Well it's nearly 5.45pm here (Saturday) so I'm not planning to do a great deal more today. I have friends arriving from New Zealand tomorrow so I've been cleaning, tidying and making up the guest beds.

Which do you prefer being in front of the camera or behind it ?
Behind for sure!
Just for Fun:

Do you collect anything?
I collect soaps from hotels I've stayed in around the world - have been collecting them for 40 years - I think I have over a thousand (but not planning to count them any time soon).

Do you recycle at your house?
Pretty much. We have various bins for recycling so it's not onerous.

Have a great weekend everyone - I may not make it to tomorrow's QOTD as I expect to be socialising with my visitors. Thanks for the questions Mike.

Today's Question(s):

Do you wake up easily in the morning or require coffee, exercise, or something else to get you going?I usually am able to wake up without the aid of caffeine as long as I do all my thinking the night before (what to wear, lunch, etc ...) I'm usually on autopilot.

Do you feel younger or older than your current age? Sometimes I feel older due to being tired and having creaky muscles but younger in terms of attitudes and things I enjoy doing.


Last thing you were anxious about?
My performance evaluation last Friday ... I still haven't heard from my evaluator but would likely find out next week.


Bonus Question(s):

Tell me something you are planning to do today. Have a yummy Vietnamese lunch with a good friend and have her assist me with a class project followed by church in the evening.

Which do you prefer being in front of the camera or behind it ?
Both - I enjoy snapping photos but want to be in some of those pics. I'm a camera ham

Just for Fun:

Do you collect anything? Dust???
Seriously, I have a huge stuffed animal collection on top of my entertainment center. I also collect magnets from places I've visited ... My freezer is already filled up so working on the fridge now


Do you recycle at your house? I'll reuse printing paper from a blotched printing job if there's not too much ink on it. I save water bottles and give them to my friend to recycle.

Hi everyone. I wake up easily, always downstairs early. Judy sleeps on! I feel much younger
than my age which is 58. I don't feel any different than when I was in my 20s. Last thing I
was anxious about was a possibe water leak the other day, false alarm. Today Judy and I
are going out trying to book a trip to Las Vegas for her and mummy. Judy umed and ard so
much yesterday we lost out on a bargain. I take a lot of photos behind the camera, but am
not averse to having my photo taken, I think I am quite pretty and in lovely condition for my
age (!) I do collect stuff from Las Vegas. We've got a jar with a quarter from every state, a
glass container of matchbooks from casinos, and of course my cherished collection of dice and
playing cards from many casinos. We do all the normal re-cycling paper, glass etc.

Today's Question(s):

Do you wake up easily in the morning or require coffee, exercise, or something else to get you going? It takes me quite a while to become fully coherent in the morning. I walk around in a stupor and take my time getting ready for work, putting on makeup, etc. I don't drink coffee in the morning, though. Just moving around and getting ready for work eventually wakes me up!

Do you feel younger or older than your current age? Way younger!

Last thing you were anxious about? This evening. I am worried about a friend.


Bonus Question(s):
Tell me something you are planning to do today. Clean house, run errands, address Christmas cards and memorize some music for a concert I'll be singing in on Sunday.

Which do you prefer being in front of the camera or behind it? Behind it!


Just for Fun:
Do you collect anything? Yes. Snowbabies figurines. My curio cabinet is full now, though, so I think I've collected enough of them.

Do you recycle at your house? Definitely, yes.

The strange state laws are a hoot. Gotta wonder how they can leave stuff like that on the books.

Happy Saturday, everybody!

Today's Question(s):

Do you wake up easily in the morning or require coffee, exercise, or something else to get you going?
I wake up very easily. It is just a simple case of mind over mattress. It also helps if you don't have anything to eat in the house.


Do you feel younger or older than your current age?
Most the time I think I feel a little younger. I am still in denial that I am in my 50's.

Last thing you were anxious about?
The extreme lack of stinky cheese in the fridge.

Bonus Question(s):

Tell me something you are planning to do today.
Looking out the window I see I will have to once again sweep large amounts of snow off of Jeep.

Which do you prefer being in front of the camera or behind it ?
Behind it.

Just for Fun:

Do you collect anything?
Right now I have a massive dust collection

Do you recycle at your house?
Sort of. I have a seperate garbage can for recyclables. Two different garbage trucks come by on garbage day.

Strange state laws:

In Florida, it is against the law to put livestock on a school bus.

In Texas, it's against the law for anyone to have a pair of pliers in his or her possession.

Today's Question(s):

Do you wake up easily in the morning or require coffee, exercise, or something else to get you going? Being retired I just wake up when the body decides too. Then it's a cup of java.

Do you feel younger or older than your current age? About the same.

Last thing you were anxious about? Getting a rain gutter installed before the rain comes this weekend.

Bonus Question(s):

Tell me something you are planning to do today. Work around the house, shopping, napping, watching football.

Which do you prefer being in front of the camera or behind it ? Either one I'm comfortable with doing both.

Just for Fun:

Do you collect anything? Dust, hat pins, more dust, refrig magnets.

Do you recycle at your house? Always.

Have a great Saturday everyone...
