Stolen from Joey

I stole this meme, and the purple text, from Joey, who also has a blog called Stolen. How's that for fitting? 
I tag anyone who wants to participate. Come on, you know you want to.

1.  If there is one candy left in the box, do you have to eat it, or can you leave it sitting there all alone for the next few weeks?
WEEKS? Seriously? Who the fuck wrote this question? I live with Mr. RK, remember? He inhales chocolate.

2. What do you want to remember most of all, if you survive to be very old?
To keep a sense of humor. Also to keep being a pain in the ass. If I live to be very old, I'll be able to get away with it much more than I do now, because they'll say, "Oh, she's just old." You see, this is my theory - that pain in the ass people start out that way and stay that way. I really don't think it has to do with age. Old people just get away with it.

3.Would you enjoy being a very rich and famous celebrity? ( after all you don't HAVE to be like the unedifying Charles Saatchi and Nigella Lawson and pay someone £1,600 a week to clean your silver and gold collection....)
No. I mean, no fucking way. I like privacy. I don't even do Facebook. And prior to marrying Mr. RK (and today is our anniversary!), I told everyone I dated, "If you have any political ambition higher than the library board, I will leave you."

4.What piece of music do you personally find most emotionally moving?
Instrumental music, definitely. But I can't narrow it down. Swan Lake comes to mind.

5. How do you deal with anxiety, depression and bad times?
If you're not new to this blog, you know this one. I live with anxiety and depression and I fight them every step of the way. As for bad times...I try to laugh as much as I can, when I can, vent, and try to get over it.

6. What do you love doing that bores everyone else stiff?
Making lists. (Says Mr. RK.)

7. Did you ever encounter an inanimate object that seemed to have a will of its own?
OMG, our kitchen table. The fucking thing is EVIL, I tell you. Wrought iron that entangles everything from kneecaps to toes. I'm looking for a new one, but Mr. RK has this kind of woodworking snobbery that so far has prevented me from replacing it.

8. What is your very favorite hotel or restaurant? 
Depends. Hotels and restaurants are totally separate. I like a lot of places, actually. My current favorite food is this small Vietnamese place that serves what must be crack on a plate. I mean, I've never had crack, but they must put it in their tofu. I love the hotel we stayed at in London last time.

9. What do you wish you had known when you were 18? (if you are under 18, ignore this question)
Oooh, where to begin? Things get better. You can pick your own family. And if someone is a shitty kisser, they'll be even worse in bed. Just cut your losses right then and there!

I can't wait to get really old. Old enough to wear whatever the hell I want, fart in public, eat what I want when I want to eat it, say weird shit...the list is endless.

As for objects having a will of their own. How about fucking traffic lights. I KNOW they wait to change just to screw me over. And if I ever want the light to be red because I need to look at directions it is damn well GREEN! WHY? Whyyyyyyy?

Sometimes I think my life is the Truman Show and things like traffic lights are programmed to mess with my head. And you are all laughing at me.

Not only were our cats separated at birth, we may have been too. I love your answers and agree with them about 1000 percent (conservatively speaking).
And I am tired of an oak sideboard which attacks me in the small hours of the morning. I am almost permanently bruised from it.

LL Cool Joe said...

Hey you stole my bloody purple text!! :D

Thanks for the shout out. I was told just last week what a great kisser I was back in the day. That means I must be great in bed too then! :D

So I bet Mr RK hates Ikea then? :D

Abby said...

Fun answers! Don't take this the wrong way, but you sound a lot like my husband. How are you at kissing? Never mind...

Ms. CrankyPants said...

Love this! Thanks for sharing; good to know you a little better.

Wish I'd heard the kissing advice sooner - I could have avoided *hundreds*...well, hmmm, guess I'll stop RIGHT THERE. ;)

lgsquirrel said...

It was fun reading this and getting to know you better. I think when I am really really old, I don't want to remember too much cause I would spend too much time living in the past.

Charles Gramlich said...

that cat looks just like he pooped

Lynn said...

I always love the lol cats. :)

Good meme - it's always fun learning more about you. And I don't even know where to start on the what I wish I'd know when I was 18. Oh my - so many things.

Cheryl said...

I love your answers. You and I would become great friends in the real world.

My husband would have chowed down the chocolate before I ever realized it was in the house.

If I weren't so tired and lazy tonight, I would of copied the meme and answered them as well. Some of my answers would of sounded a lot like yours though.

OldLady Of The Hills said...

LOL, LOL....LOVE your answers, my dear.....I really laughed about the Kissing thing---And boy, are you right there.....lol!

And let me tell you, as an old person right now, the only GOOD thing about being old IS being able to do and say any shit you want, and NOT give a flying Fuck!!

That table sounds lethal....!You've got to get Mr. RK in line about that....!

Chocolate? I LOVE Mr. RK for being a Chocoholic!

Fun Meme, my dear....and as always, you are so honest!

DWei said...

I hope I live long enough to be "old". With my current health, I'll be lucky to live past 40.

Vanessa Morgan said...

Great answers. As to question number two... If I would grow very old, I would like to remember my cat Avalon and the love I felt for him. Thinking about him would make me happy, no matter what :)

Riot Kitty said...

OMG almost everyone made me laugh! DW, you made me get a sad :(

Joey, we actually like the stuff at Ikea, just not the store. It's one giant clusterfuck.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Woodworking snobbery? Tell us more! And happy anniversary!

Thanks, I may try my hand at this meme next week.

1. If there is one candy left in the box, do you have to eat it, or can you leave it sitting there all alone for the next few weeks? It depends…I’ve chocolate in the fridge and lollies (candy) in a jar that have been in their respective places for months and months. I've a Lindt chocolate bunny in my fridge that's been there now for about 8 years...I just don't have the heart to eat him! He'll outlast me!

2. What do you want to remember most of all, if you survive to be very old?
Who I am.

3.Would you enjoy being a very rich and famous celebrity? ( after all you don't HAVE to be like the unedifying Charles Saatchi and Nigella Lawson and pay someone £1,600 a week to clean your silver and gold collection....) O thought I already was! Damn!

4.What piece of music do you personally find most emotionally moving?
There are many…”Always On My Mind”, “Moon River”….and many classical pieces…too many pieces of music to list….I’m a sook!

5. How do you deal with anxiety, depression and bad times? Keep my battles to myself and do battle with them!

6. What do you love doing that bores everyone else stiff?
Doing everything that I enjoy doing…and stuff them!




7. Did you ever encounter an inanimate object that seemed to have a will of its own?
Yep…some humans!
8. What is your very favorite hotel or restaurant? Raffles, Singapore.

9. What do you wish you had known when you were 18? (if you are under 18, ignore this question). Hang on! I knew everything when I was 18. It was only as I grew older I began not knowing everything!

When I was four or five I had a small cedar chest that had a lock. Inside I kept several objects that were my treasures. Tiny bisque dolls, some shiny rocks, a book of matches, ribbon, etc. I can always remember opening the box and the sight, sound and smell of cedar that greeted me. Hopefully when I am very old, I will still be able to recall that memory.

Vanessa Morgan said...

An evil kitchen table? Ooh, I'd like to see that.

Riot Kitty said...

Debra: Thanks! Meaning he, being a woodworker in his free time, will wreak havoc with criticism on anything remotely looking like it is made of wood, and tell me it's going to wither and collapse within seconds of us getting it home.
Lee: Awesome! Thanks!!
GA: That is so neat. I'd write that down just to read over and over.
Vanessa: It's all yours!
