If I'm really mad and can't yell, I cry.....then I get quiet...and if I get quiet, you 'd better watch out.

My best friend is my husband.

My favourite dessert is pastry hearts, lemon pie and butter ring.

My favourite singer is Johnny Mathis; AND Jim Nabors, Robert Goulet, Gordon MaCrea, Jimmy Rodgers and more; although I prefer to listen to and sing Traditional Catholic and Latin Hymns.

When I get mad I try not to blow up; and I pray for grace from God to help me. Sometimes I toss furniture around while cleaning to blow off steam.
May God Bless you!
Pray, sing, sew and drink only the most excellent coffee!

Best friend - off line been through 7 kids and 3 husbands ( I'm still one the first) and Many many years. We don't see each other much -ours is a high reward low maintenance relationship.

Best dessert - Delia Smiths Apple pie with cheesy crust and ice cream mmmmmmm

Fave singer - me! I like Clannad - the lady has a haunting voice

When I get mad ---mmmm trying to remember......I think I yell and swear, but I'm not sure. I don't really do mad - I can get cuttingly sarcastic though.
love and kisses, Jan

My best friend is my Husband and he's not online.

My favorite dessert is Mississippi Mud Pie and Red Velvet Cake w/ cream cheese frosting

My favorite singers are lady- Barbra Streisand and Man -Barry Manalow.

When I get mad First I cry and then I want to get physical but don't and then I think alot and get busy doing things that take my mind off of what made me mad. Getting mad takes up too much entergy. I'd rather save it for things I like doing.

Susie reminded me that I also cry when I get mad. Especially if it is something about my kids. Like if the teacher tells me something that torks me off.

My favourite dessert is? I love almost every desert...anything chocolate is high on my list.

My favourite singer is? I really love Hazel Dickens, Earl Scruggs, Doc Watson, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Bonny Raitt and Bob Dylan.

When I get mad I? I speak my mind, sometimes I don't choose my battles wisely, but I don't really yell. Ever since the menopause started I also cry...which just makes me madder!

My best friend is online or no? Hubby is my best friend and he e-mails me a lot during the day, so he's both

My favourite dessert is? just one huh? Anything with fruit in pineapple cake, strawberry pie and cherry ice cream

My favourite singer is? My daughter, who has an awesome voice--we have no idea where it came from. I also like Selah, Casting Crowns and the Rat Pack singers--Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, etc. Norah Jones is also right up there....

When I get mad I? I cry, I clean, I work hard to prove them all wrong and then I get quiet and get a lot done. I should get mad more often

My best friend is hubby....he even likes to go shopping without needing something.

My favorite dessert is ??? Not really a dessert eater but a piece of fruit pie once in awhile is ok.

My favorite singer(s) is Elvis and now Josh Groban and Barbara Streisand but I like a lot of singers and a wide variety of music.

When I get mad...which is not very often at all but I have a tendancy to raise my voice enough that I'm listened too and after I've said my piece I go off by myself til I cool down.

I've decided to live forever - so far, so good.

My best friend for over 40 years (we were like sisters, which neither of us had) died 3 years ago. I have many friends online. My daughters are my very good friends, now that they've reached the age of reason!

My favorite dessert is called Chocolate Intemperance.

My favorite singer is Dean Martin; 2nd favorite is Placido Domingo;favorite female singer Judy Garland.

When I get mad I try to keep quiet because I am not one who says "I wish I'd thought of that;" I've generally not only thought of it, I've said it, quite loudly. However, I seldom get really mad. I tend to be pretty laid back.

One of my sons said, "Mom left her temper laying around somewhere and never found it again, like she does her car keys and books."
Life is a song...we give it harmony or dissonance.

My best friend - I have several good friends. My favorite one to spend time with is Jenny, a remarkable person, fun-loving, compassionate, dedicated to her family. We can talk for hours and it seems like minutes.

My favorite dessert - strawberry or peach cream pies that my niece makes. Superb!!

My favorite singer - Celine Dion or Bette Midler. Both are awesome.

When I get mad - (not too often) depends on how tired I am. I sometimes cry :cry: , sometimes clean, and sometimes just spout off :mad: .
