Funday Monday

I haven't been around much because of the big fundraiser I volunteered for on Friday.  It was an overnight event, so I was gone most of the day and all night, came home on Saturday and slept most of that day and night.  Sunday, I just zombied out and relaxed.

I'm pretty sure that I will not be participating in this event next year.  This season was very aggravating, then something happened a few days before that really angered me.  I'm not going to go into the situation here, because I do think the fundraiser was for a great cause.  The good thing is that it's over for the season and my time will be my own now.  

Nothing else too terribly exciting happened during the week other than seeing a double rainbow on the way to work one day which made me smile.  I wanted to pull over and get a picture, but the traffic was too heavy.  So here's one I found from Google Images instead.
Took this from here.

1.  Would you rather be rich or famous?  Why?

I used to think I'd like to be rich AND famous.  I automatically just presumed that if you were famous, you were also rich.  I know better now.  I really don't think I'd like being famous.  It would suck to make mistakes in the public eye and have everyone know about them.  I don't need anyone judging me any more than they already do, either.  

Money doesn't buy happiness, but it sure would make things a whole lot easier sometimes!  I'd love to pay off my house, buy a new car, not have to worry about paying off student loans or my credit card debt, go shopping to my heart's content, etc., etc., etc.  However, I do think a few of my friends would be calling me on the regular, asking for loans.  Actually, one would probably try to guilt me into just outright giving her $, saying I have more than I need.  And I bet a lot of long lost "family members" would come out of the woodwork suddenly.  lol

Difficult decision, but I think I'd prefer being rich.

2.  Of all your relatives, which one have you not seen for the longest time?  How long has it been?  

I have a ton of cousins I've never met and likely never will.  I also have nieces and nephews I've never met and probably never will.  As for immediate family members, it would be my middle brother.  I can't even remember the last time I saw him.  We used to chat on facebook once in a great while, but he's ignored my last two messages.  I have a feeling I'll never see him again.  Sad, but it's his choice.  I've made the effort, he hasn't.  There's nothing more I can do.

3.  If you had a "theme song" that played whenever you walk into a room full of people, what would it be?  

This is a really hard one.  I've decided on this one, Life is Beautiful by Sixx AM.  (Sorry, I don't know how to upload videos.)  I'd choose this one because sometimes I just need a reminder.  Either that or this one, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper.  What would yours be?  

4.  Show and tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or tell a story if it reminds you of one.  
The picture is labeled "Russia."  It really doesn't remind me of anything.  It just looks like an old farmhouse out in the country.  Or maybe a barn.  I kind of think it's an older picture, not a recent one.

Zombied out - I love that expression :)
That is an interesting Q and A. The buildings in that picture have very unusual roofs. I think of Holland when I see it as I have seen houses from there with roofs like that.

I a, glad for you that the fundraiser is over but what a stinks that something bad happened. There should be an opportunity to wrap up the event and talk about what worked and what didn't so I hope you get the chance!

My human enjoyed reading your answers. Good on you for still helping at the fundraiser, despite being upset by whatever happened in the days before.

Back again... I have just written my own answers to the questions you posted on my blog.

Woofs,
Riley
