Wednesday Wickedness # 12

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Wickedness. We are like other memes in that we will ask you ten questions each and every Wednesday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick a famous person and pick ten of their quotes. Each of our questions will be based on the quotes. Got it? Great! Let's begin this week's meme!

Today we picked Ellen Degeneres. Here's Wednesday Wickedness!

1. "I was coming home from kindergarten--well they told me it was kindergarten. I found out later I had been working in a factory for ten years. It's good for a kid to know how to make gloves." How old were you when you started working and what was your first job?

I baby sat at 14 and got a part time job at Marshall Field & Co (now Macy's) at 16.
I was the receptionist in the beauty parlor.

2. "My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She's ninety-seven now, and we don't know where the hell she is." Tell us about your grandparents.

We lived with my grandparents when I was growing up. My Grandfather trained to be an opera singer, but had a family to support. My grandmother graduated from college and was the first librarian in her town of St Joseph Missouri.

3. "Procrastination isn't the problem, it's the solution. So procrastinate now, don't put it off." Do you procrastinate or are you on top of the situations?

A little of both my friends.

4. "Sometimes you can't see yourself clearly until you see yourself through the eyes of others." What would others say about you?

They haven't told me yet.

5. "The only thing that scares me more than space aliens is the idea that there aren't any space aliens. We can't be the best that creation has to offer. I pray we're not all there is. If so, we're in big trouble" Do you believe in life on other planets?

Yes, outer space is way to big to think that we're all alone here.

6. "I'm a godmother, that's a great thing to be, a godmother. She calls me god for short, that's cute, I taught her that." Do you have a godchild?

No I don't.

7. "I don't understand the sizes anymore. There's a size zero, which I didn't even know that they had. It must stand for: 'Ohhh my God, you're thin.'" When was the last time that you were called too thin?


8. "I have the worst memory ever so no matter who comes up to me - they're just, like, 'I can't believe you don't remember me!" I'm like, 'Oh Dad I'm sorry!'" Who was the last person that you should have recognized but didn't?

My Dr's wife, I had met her a few years back and completely forgot.
I'm a ding a ling.

9. "I gotta work out. I keep saying it all the time. I keep saying I gotta start working out. It's been about two months since I've worked out. And I just don't have the time. Which uh..is odd. Because I have the time to go out to dinner. And uh..and watch tv. And get a bone density test. And uh.. try to figure out what my phone number spells in words." Do you work out? Have you ever joined a gym and quit almost immediately?

I do work out at home but I have joined several different gyms and stayed for a period of time, then I left!

10. 'We use 10 percent of our brains. Imagine how much we could accomplish if we used the other 60 percent." Do you feel that you utilize all your intelligence in every situation?

I'm not running on all four burners at the same time.
I have to keep some in reserve.
don't want to use it all up.

I'm sorry everyone, I just read my own answers and they are so boring.
Must be the heat! :)

Thanks for checking out our Wednesday craziness. We hope you join us again. Please visit our other player's posts and make a comment. Join us next week for our next meme


  1. peggy, this was fun...getting the chance to know whether you think there is intelligent life out there ;) ellen is a hard act to follow but you did a great job!!

  2. I love Ellen; all her quotes made me laugh and I love your answers! I'm not a godmother to anyone either -- I do feel a bit slighted every time I'm not chosen, which is unreasonable I know, but ... LOL

  3. I just typed something and then it disappeared. I have a feeling it's on to printed so, please erase it.

    I just wanted to say I loved Ellen too and I loved your comments. I'd like to clearly say as a friend that you are kind, adventurous, sweet, friendly, BEAUTIFUL, courageous, smart, giving, and the best kind of friend a person could ever be blessed to have.

  4. Ahaa.... I finally got the answer to number 4!
    Kay wrote them down completely for you..

    Sounds like you have a good personality :)

    Anyway, your answers are not boring! I love it :)


  5. It was interesting to learn about your grandparents. An opera singer....wow!

  6. My sister's first real job was at Fields too. She was a cashier.

    Have a great Wednesday!

  7. They don't ALL have to be gems. All your responses were interesting... Happy Hump Day! ;)

  8. work out at home is great..

  9. I can tell you that from here, I see you as caring, brave, upbeat and with a sense of humor I love. That help? :)

    Ellen always makes me laugh; she's like my generation's version of Erma Bombeck.

    Ah, Babysitting. Began at the age of 12 and I swear I raised half my neighborhood!

  10. Not boring at all Peggy, I enjoyed finding out more about you. :)

  11. I love Ellen's comment on work. I actually began working as a young child. Growing up in the country, we were hired out to neighbors for harvesting. We earned a few cents an hour. That kept us happy and developed a good work ethic.

    BTW, I am informing followers of my Blest Atheist blog that the blog went down. I replaced it with 100th Lamb (www.emahlou.blogspot.com). I explain why there.

  12. You answers weren't boring at all. I liked all your answers. I chuckled at your answer for #4.

    A Wonderful Weekend is wished for you.

  13. Awe Bill, you're the best!
    Wonderful weekend to you to my friend.
