This weeks questions comes from ME!!

1. What is the hardest thing you have ever done? Realizing how fragile life is, it really messes with your head when a doctor tells you that you have to have a transplant…you come to the conclusion very quickly that someone has to die in order for you to live, I dealt with a lot of “survivors guilt” and the guilt came back two-fold when I needed a second liver transplant, not only was another person dying so that I could continue to live, but I also had to deal with the fact that I let my donor and her family down, by not being able to keep my first donated liver.
2. If you are at a friend’s or relative’s house for dinner and you find a dead insect in your salad, what would you do? If I’m at a friend or relatives house I don’t see the issue with telling them, they certainly wouldn’t hesitate to tell me.

3. What was the best thing that happened to you this past week? One of the best parts of me week is always seeing my mom..

mome

4. If you had this week over again what would you do differently? When I took my mom to the ER on Monday I would have been seem, totally eliminating me having to be in excruciating pain and going back on Saturday.

hospy

5. What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about God? Honestly I think of a regualr guy, sitting on a bench, eating a sandwhich talking to random strangers who sit next to him,

 

6. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? Haggis… I can’t express how weird and awful it was

haggis
7. If you could ask Christ to change one problem in the world today, what would you like him to change? I would ask to stop war, in my opinion, war breeds inequality, ignorance and intolerance. I think the world would be a much better place, if we could accept the differences in people and liver peacefully. (yes I understand that’s a very simplistic view).

8. What book, movie or video have you seen/read recently you would recommend? Why? When I came home from the hospital on Saturday I ate, took more pain meds and went to bed, but lately the drugs don’t keep me asleep, so I’m sitting in the gust room at my parents watching Seed of Chucky, I’m not sure if it’s because I was super high but this has got to be one of the strangest movies I’ve ever seen. In all fairness I started watching the movie in the middle and I was seriously confused by the doll in the middle…I guess I need other people to watch it so that they can tell me what the hell is going on.

seedofchucky

9. If you had a time machine that would work only once, what point in the future or in history would you visit? One –Way Street

10. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? I’ve said many times on this blog that I would love to go to Australia but the flight is so long

Now it is your turn to answer the questions on your blog and come back here and post a link to them, don’t forget to go check out everyone else’s answers too.

Until Next Time,

If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to read and comment on a couple of other posts.

This week’s random questions come from me….  if you some topic/question suggestions for FMM, please email your ideas to Sarah at sarah@losingweightandhavingfun.com…So let’s get started

1. If I gave you $10,000 what would you spend it on? When I opened this I was gonna say a new cell phone, but I un-expectantly had to purchase a new one today because my old one just died… wouldn’t charge, screen wouldn’t stay on… apparently the hard drive … motherboard or whatever was slowly shutting down and would be dead by the Wednesday Sad smile. I wanted a new phone, I wanted the phone that I had to purchase today, BUT I wanted to buy it because I wanted to, not that I needed to.

So back to the original question, I was take $4,000 and give it to my mom, and for the rest I would use to move and secure a place in Arizona.

2. If you could watch your favorite movie now, what would it be? It would be either Sense and Sensibility, Lost in Austen OR Austenland. I’m sure that everyone reading this is sensing a theme.

lost in austenaustenlandsense

3. If you could talk to anyone in the world, who would it be? I would want to talk to my grandfather again, (I know everyone says this) but when he passed away I lost something really precious. He was one of the few people in my life who would seriously tell me like it is, then tell me how much he loved me, and how special I was, because his daughter (who was equally special and precious to him) gave birth to me. Even writing this makes me tear up a little bit.

4. If you could wish one thing to come true this year, what would it be?

I would love for it to snow on Christmas day – but I know that isn’t likely to happen in California.

5. If you could live in any period of history, when would it be? Oh my goodness this is so hard, you know every single time I say I want to live in a certain time period, I look at the food they were eating back them (Thanks to The Supersizers Go… ) I’m gonna have to pass on this one. (You all should totally watch this show… you’d probably change your mind too)

6. If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be? I would stop being so fearful of putting myself out there.

7. If you could have any question answered, what would it be? What is my life expectancy … considering all the medical issues I have.

8. If you could watch your favorite TV show right now, what would it be? I wouldn’t say that it’s my favorite cause all my TV shows aren’t on yet… but I am really liking Red Band Society Right Now

9. If you could have any kind of pet, what would you have? I absolutely love my cat Tsuki, but I have always wanted a French bulldog (and name her Lola). I may actually get on in the near future.

frechie

10. If you could do your dream job 10 years from now, what would it be? 10 years from now I would love to be writing my third book.. and sending it in to the publisher.

 

As my Vietnamese  friends would say…cho đến khi tôi gặp lại anh!

1. If you were a city, which city would you choose and why?

I’m stealing Sarah’s answer AND her picture. I think that I would be San Francisco. It has a rich history with an eclectic neighborhoods and people AND it’s an absolutely beautiful city. I was watching something not to long ago about San Francisco and I thought to myself , “If I lived there I would walk EVERYWHERE (And be in such good shape)”

2. What are your ten favorite foods? This makes me feel like such a pig…. but here we go….

  • Tacos
  • Pizza
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Turkey
  • Cheese (alone or with something)
  • Strawberries
  • Chili
  • Pork Chop
  • Chicken
  • Potatoes

TimTam

3. If you were a candy bar, which candy bar would it be and why? I wouldn’t call this a candy bar, but I don’t care I would be a TimTam… Chocolate with yummy flaky layers with a surprise center.

4. If you were to change your name, what would you change it to and why? You know, as long as I was a little girl I felt like I was meant to be a Stephanie, I actually brought it up a few years ago to my mom and she told me that it was almost my name, she liked the name so much she gave my brother the middle name Stephan…. It never occurred to me to name a pet Stephanie….

autumn

5. Do you prefer Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter? Autumn is my all time favorite… fun that you (well I asked) because I just posted about it THIS morning.

6. If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you want to have? Unlimited power source, iPod and a someone to talk to.

7. Share your favorite material object that you already own. I have this fuzzy pink pillow and a matching blanket that I friend gave me when I was in the hospital. It’s so incredibly soft, it’s always with me… it’s on my bed as we speak, when I go out of town I take it with me, when I’m in the hospital I take it with me, it’s almost like a security blanket at this point.

8. What item that you don’t already have, would you most like to own? I would love to get the latest Galaxy, I know a lot of people are ga-ga over the new iPhone, but I don’t care for apple products… I used iTunes because I HAVE to. .. and the current celebrity nude hackings don’t help either. I figure as many celebrities that they have imagine how many regular people’s nudes they have… well not mine, because I don’t take nude photos of myself.

alaska

9. If you could choose one vacation destination, where would it be and why? I think I night have answered this last week and I said Australia…. but I would also live to visit Alaska.. which is very odd, because I don’t do well in the cold and I’m not very rugged.

10. If you were to create a slogan for your life, what would it be? (example: eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we all die) Life is so much brighter when we focus on what truly matters….

As my German friends would say…Bis zum nächsten Mal !
