Okay, I would totally understand if you wanted to skip this post and come back again tomorrow. LOL!

I’ve been tagged by Mommy the Maid to do this 70, yes I said 70, question meme. Who in the world came up with 70 questions? So much for remaining anonymous, huh?

Anyway, thank you Mommy the Maid for thinking about me. I’ll be a good sport and play along. The rest of you can go take a nap now.

3. Do you believe in Heaven? Yes, I do.

4. Have you ever come close to dying? I don’t think I was close to dying but it sure felt like it. Remember the time Girlie Girl fell into that 9′ pool and my non-swimming body jumped in to save her? Yup, I thought I was going to die.

    I read them all!!! It was fun finding out more about you. I love the name Kai as well. It is our son’s middle name.

    Wow! I’m honored. I didn’t think anyone would actually read all of them! LOL! 

  2. *Terramia* says:

    Wow… what a journey in length and information! Tis just amazing how much you can learn about someone in oh, 70 questions or so. (:
    Your blog is just heavenly…

    Namaste, Terramia… another Islander (but on a wet coast…!)

  3. yoshi says:

    There are some crazy people (like myself) that will actually read everything. Although it seems some questions are a bit TMI and nonsensical.

    My friend’s son is named Kai, I like that name. I thought of naming my son kai, but that would just get too confusing I think for such a name.

    I think I might do this list, but rather in my about section, instead of a post. 70 questions about me I suppose. Sounds interesting.

    You and Tiggerprr! 

  4. tiggerprr says:

    That Yoshi…he and I vie for who sleeps the least. Now he’s beating me to your blog! :P

    I read them all too! #37. Yum.

    So many of our answers are similar! Shocking, huh? LOL

    I might have to do this too. But maybe as Yoshi said, in my About section. I need more info there.

    You two crack me up. It’s like you’re related or something. Wait, you’re not brother and sister are you?

    What was #37 again? 

  5. Carey says:

    Wow, what a crazy long meme. Ive never seen one that long. Great answers though.
    Have a great weekend..

  6. Pamela says:

    when did you change your template? I must be in a fog.

    Tom Hanks, Josh Hartnett, TLC, Kelly Clarkson, Eva Longoria, Jason Scott Lee
    Is there something in your contract that would make it wrong for you to blog about your encounters? or have you already done that.
    I’d be interested in how they acted in an unescapable environment. I suppose you have first class — where I have never riden. However, that is on my to do list.

    Nope, no privacy clause in our contracts. Tom Hanks was with his wife Rita and they pretty much kept to themselves. So did Josh Hartnett. In fact, I didn’t even realize it was Josh since he wore a baseball cap and rarely looked up. The girls in TLC were the sweetest people! Kelly Clarkson was kind of a diva and was upset because we couldn’t move her friends up to first class. Eva seemed to want the whole plane to know she was on. She likes the attention. Jason Scott Lee is actually from Hawaii so I knew him when we were younger.

  7. Sam says:

    Yay, the anti-spam word was “chocolate” I love chocolate!!!

    I read allll 70 of your questions and answers, and I love how you responded to some of the more personal ones hehe! Meeting famous people is fun, but the encounters I had when I worked at the hotel were short and sweet LOL *hugs*

  8. tiggerprr says:

    Yoshi’s my brother from another mother! We lived in Japan and went to Yokota High School together in 7th – 9th grade but never spoke, he was too busy wearing his silver NASA jacket and I was too cool to talk to someone in my own grade. We became friends several years later because he emailed me, and we’ve not shut up since. LOL

    I knew you were related! LOL! How cool!

  9. yoshi says:

    Damn. I wish I still had that silver jacket. :)

    It would probably be a collector’s item by now! 

  10. Ma says:

    Whew! That was a long one, but pretty interesting and better than the question they have on My Space. I never wore socks back in Hawai’i, but it’s so cold here that I need to. I hardly ever wore shoes for that matter, it was always slippahs. But now I wear them when I go out of the house. Can’t wait to go back there.

  11. Michelle says:

    So let me get this straight . . . you live with the ocean in your backyard and don’t know how to swim? Is this possible? Wow. But I guess that isn’t that odd, my mother hates swimming in the ocean, it freaks her out and she has to see her feet.

    Strange, huh? Actually, I almost drowned when I was younger and now have a fear of the water. That’s why I’m so determined that my kids learn how to swim . . . just in case they have to save me one day!
