Meme: Saturday Six -- Episode 96

This is the 96th edition of the "Saturday Six." That number will even figure into one of the questions this week. Thanks for playing week after week, and if you're a first-time visitor, I hope you'll be back!

Tabitha of "Bello Nientes" was first to play last week! Congratulations, Tabitha!

Here are this week's "Saturday Six" questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your journal...but either way, leave a link to your journal so that everyone else can visit! To be counted as "first to play," you must be the first player to either answer the questions in a comment here or to provide a complete link to the specific entry in your journal in which you answer the questions. A link to your journal in general cannot count. Enjoy!

1. Do you have a Valentine this year?
I have one every year...
2. How will you spend the big day itself?
Avoiding the issue. Personally, it's something the card and chocolatiers have dreampt up to help the post-xmas sales slump...
3. What are you most allergic to? Do you have to take medication or avoid certain medication to stay well?
Bee stings. I carry an Epi-Pen. I avoid eating bees, except when ensconced in chocolate.
4. Take this quiz (if you haven't already!): What temperament are you? (Thanks to Barb!)

You Have a Melancholic Temperament

Introspective and reflective, you think about everything and anything. You are a soft-hearted daydreamer. You long for your ideal life. You love silence and solitude. Everyday life is usually too chaotic for you. Given enough time alone, it's easy for you to find inner peace. You tend to be spiritual, having found your own meaning of life. Wise and patient, you can help people through difficult times. At your worst, you brood and sulk. Your negative thoughts can trap you. You are reserved and withdrawn. This makes it hard to connect to others. You tend to over think small things, making decisions difficult.

What temperament Are You?

  1. There is actually a town in my state of birth, South Carolina, called Ninety-Six. What's the most unusual place name in the your home state. (For home state, it can be where you live now or where you grew up.)
    Coburn Gore. Think about it...
    6. How much money would you need to really feel secure?

    There is no sum of money that I can imagine that would make me feel secure. Not enough money is obviously stressful. Too much money is alarming and, therefore, very stressful. At this point, I'd settle for feeling I had enough saved to provide for my short future and my wife's relatively long future. And that amount is unattainable in the time remaining by ordinary means...
