Mini-Meme! Two Questions.....

All of you familiar with the format really respond well to this short, but profound Meme!
Question One: What is your favorite activity?
Question Two: what is your least favorite activity, that you occasionally HAVE to participate in?

I usually go first, to help out the timid...

1. I guess feeding people.... It's basic, everyone eats, and I think I'm pretty good at it! Maybe my answer should have been- making people happy!...
2. Funerals. I am not good at situations that require a symapathic, quiet person. Went to one a couple of days ago. I have said before, my family deals with stressfull situations with humor- to relieve the tension. This is not always appreciated by folks that don't have alot of humor in their lives...
Answer as you will, and remember! This blog is titled "Opinions and Rectums"...

Well now we can't pick anything BUT a funeral for our least favorites... who enjoys them?

1. Favorite: Traveling. Does that count as an activity? Talking?

2. Waiting. Particularly in doctors' offices. I do far too much of it.

deb said...

1. may sound mundane to anyone else, but hanging out with meg, feeling like a kid and being goofy with her. laugh till we ache goofiness.

2. any activity in this hell heat.

Claudia said...

1) Sex
2) Sex in this humidity.

Heh.

Gnightgirl said...

Good answers. Have you ever gotten funeral giggles? They're awful, and hilarious.

Fav: Painting. Or rather finishing painting. I procrastinate and agonize, but when it's done, I'm so proud.

Least fav: Anything to do with a dentist.

doggybloggy said...

too many favorites to mention but my least favorite is waiting, waiting in line, waiting for some one, waiting any kind of waiting.

buffalodickdy said...

finn- Yes! Abolutely! Traveling sometimes means "getting away from whatever my life is here" Waiting is a universal pain... Dammit! Don't they know who I am!!??!!
deb- goofy is a special time, and laughing at nothing makes you feel good...
Claudia- Sweaty is OK, smelly is a step past OK...
gnightgirl- Yes, I have! Laughing at inappropriate times is a big part of the dink I am..Painting? A room or Art? I suck at both...
If my dentist didn't have the most wonderful gal working in his office, I would agree...
DogB- I don't do lines- not even if what they're giving away is cool and free!

Akelamalu said...

I love dancing but don't get to do it as often as I would like, though I take advantage of every opportunity. :)

I hate going to the dentist but of course I have to, at least every six months for a checkup.

Anndi said...

Let's see...

1. Spending time with my Chicklet - anything that makes her giggle...

and spending time with my Honey - just being in his arm or next to him works for me.

2. Having to sit through a "complain" session at work. I think some of the people I work with believe their job is actually to complain.

leezee52 said...

1) Going to the Casino..fun! I can play the slot machines for hours!


2) Going to big parties where I don't know everyone. I do better in small groups.

buffalodickdy said...

Ake- I loved to dance up through my 40s... Less athletic nowadays...
Anndi- Complaining at work is like pissing into a headwind- you get to empty your bladder(which feels pretty good!), but now you're pissed on instead of pissed off...
leezee52- We like the casinos too- but lately it doesn't like us! Big parties are okay with me- I don't have to be the "cruise director"..

Odat said...

1) Favorite: Swimming, (in the ocean, in a lake, in a pool, in a bathtub....just put me near water and I'm happy).

2) Least favorite: Wedding/baby showers....If I don't really have to go, I send a present.....I just can't stand sitting there amongst the oooohs and aaahhhs.....

(We use humor too to get thru tough times and like you said, some people just don't appreciate it....;-)

buffalodickdy said...

odat- I'm lovin' the diversity of answers on this post- it's what I hope for.. The water? How primal.. how basic to making us feel better... Showers- Women at their worst, for a good cause! Humor doesn't belong anywhere.... it belongs everywhere!

J Morgetron said...

1. Favorite activity: Not working. I don't really care what I am doing, as long as I do not perceive it as work.

2. Least favorite thing that I occasionally have to do: Have diarrea. I hate that, but when it happens there's not a whole lot anybody can do about it. I hate it when other people have it too. It ruins everything.

Leighann said...

I've sat here for a few minutes trying to pinpoint ONE thing that I would consider my favorite thing to do and it's not an easy decision! I'm going to go with.... anything that makes my kids laugh and have fun.

My least favorite, that's easy. Anything social. Shopping, Picnics.... ANYTHING, even if it involves my own family.

Tanya Kristine said...

funerals. i went to one and never again. my funeral is going to be a PARTY!

my favorite activity is anything not at work.

my least favorite activity is going to work.

Tanya Kristine said...

crap. i like odats answers...i want those too. water and friggin' showers of any kind. YUK!

Maddy said...

Hmm. I'll give it some thought, but I'm with you on the humour at funerals, certainly helps relieve some of the tension.
Cheers

j morgetron- Work is something I have avoided throughout my life.. I came to a crossroads in my life once- I either had to go to work, or go into sales.... Sales won.. I know this is hard to believe, but taking a righteous dump moves up on your "want to" list as you get older!
Leighann- I know your anti social feelings, but I have you watched you get way better at this! There will be a day when you will organize the party!
Tanya- you at a shower... I get to watch!
maddy- You are so British! I would really like to hang out with you someday.. the laughs would never end!

J Morgetron said...

Righteous dump? YES!

Diarrea ... NOOOOOO!

snowelf said...

Allrighty:

1. Favorite--rollerblading.
(Now if I just could get one of my dutch uncle's cute and humorous sons to come with me... ;) hehehe.)

2. Least favorite: Cooking.
I know, I know. :( But I'm just SO bad. I had another really bad night with dinner again tonight. I ended up having to throw away half of it out and start all over because I completely destroyed most of the food. I just stood there in my kitchen in tears wishing a pizza guy would show up at my door.

How hard is eggs and toast... really!!?

That's why there are awesome cooks like you--chicks like me appreciate them. :)

hugs!
--snow

Roger said...

1) Fishing!

2) working!

buffalodickdy said...

morgy- Scatter gun pattern still feels better out of you than inside you...
Snowniece-(soon to be daughter-in-law! I hope!) I'll cook, if you marry one of the boys!
Rog- Spoken like a true fisherman..

TavoLini said...

Favorite: Right now it would be sitting on the front porch with Tavo, an unread book, a tall glass of wine (with ice--yep, I'm that classy) and the fan blowing on us.

Least favorite: Work. I mean, I love my students, I love my coworkers...but if I didn't have to come here everyday I sure wouldn't! Once or twice a week would be enough.

Mona said...

My favorite is the same as yours. Feeding people and feeling content in their contentment. This goes in other spheres too.

My least favorite is doing the dishes!

At funerals I feel the need to comfort the bereaved by Death...

Hope you are doing well Buf! :)

buffalodickdy said...

Lini- I hope that wine with the ice cubes in it came from Michigan- with a screw cap... :) You can take the chick out of Michigan, but you can't take the Michigan out of the chick...
Mona- You are a kind person. I go to funerals to respect the loved one of the people still living..Hope you are well, also..

Romi said...

Least Favorite: Flying
