*Applause* what a fabulous idea...and LOVE you answers... you do get tired of responding to these emails after more than 10 years of them floating by the inbox.

What color is cerulean?
And... you're the second person I know of that's given out Croutons... for halloween... hilarious.

Hmmmm... here's a question - if you couldn't be with your hubby which celebrity(ies) would be next on your list?

Carina said...

What movie do you hate so much it makes your teeth hurt?

Favorite pair of shoes?

How soon is now?

Anonymous said...

yup yup yup... I like it when people write me back to....hmmm its a wonder

La Yen said...

I can't win.

~j. said...

good questions...

Queen: my list includes, but is not limited to, Hank Azaria, Luke Wilson, and Matthew Broderick.

Carina: Cabin Boy. My tall black (or brown) boots. They say that absence makes the heart grow fungus.

I just thought of a new one: my more-than-a-pet-peeve is when people lie to me.

~j. said...

Jen - the announcement hasn't OFFICIALLY been made...although ikea has "purchased some land in Draper."

Monica said...

you like 100 grands? i like 100 grands! we should be best friends.

Anonymous said...

Since you love Extreme Makeover Home Edition, I think you should try 3 Wishes on NBC. I've only seen it once . . . but I bawled the entire time. It was so sweet! And we really need to work on the whole Nordstrom cafe thing :)

~j. said...

Wait - James, you like 100 grand bars? Weren't you ALSO class clown? Man, we have a lot in common...

La Yen said...

I was "most Unique" read: no one wants to date you and "shortest hair" read: no one wants to date you.

~j. said...

Shortest hair? Wow, Jen. How ever did you acheive such an honor?

Anonymous said...

~j. said...

perhaps... ask betsy & jerry what they were voted, and then ask them what there favorite candy bar is.

Carina said...

I was voted "Most Likely to Become a Smooth-Talking Politician."

And then I married Mr. A-Political.

What a fun, sexy time for you high school must have been. At least you were not voted most likely to become a theralyst or an analrapist, and could focus on the banana stand.

Carina said...

No, it's IN the banana stand.

~j. said...

She's right. There's a lot of money in the banana stand.

Hey, Marie, thanks for visiting my blog.

Are you in the Jamestown area? Been to Mayville? Love Lucy?

Yes, Mary Kay IS a good business for me. In fact, since right after Thanksgiving, I really haven't done anything at all with it because I didn't want to. I have other things going on in my life right now. I was working towards being a director, but after seeing the price it costs in time, I wasn't willing to pay it. I'll do it in the future, though, when my time is right.

One of the things I love about this company is that I CAN do this. I work when I feel like it. I'm still a consultant, and even though I'm not working at holding Skin Care Classes right now, I'm still making money - almost $300 in January, just in re-orders.

Not that that's any of your business.

Now, I saw the website you advertised, and I don't appreciate you doing so on my blog. I'm not sure what your motivation is, but be assured that I think for myself, and a stranger's recommendation to "see the truth" about a company that I myself have had great success in doesn't change my opinion.

In wondering what your motivation might be, I tried to access your blog by clicking on your name, but, go figure, you have made your profile private and therefore I cannot access any information about you.

The only conclusion I draw is that you search for those with Mary Kay in their profile interests, google something about another aspect of their life (hometown, perhaps) and then comment with the website in tow. I doubt you'll even come back to read this.

If you've had a negative experience (or several) with this company, you have my condolences. Reality shows us that not all people can be trusted, and unfortunately, that applies to all areas of business, and of life. If you'd care to discuss this further, in an email perhaps, feel free to leave your contact information. I will be with this company for a very, VERY long time.

And now I will delete your comment from my blog.
