For Cats Following Jesus’ True Principles.

It’s a mnemonic people. I’m not interested in the religious cat community.

FAITH

1. What religion do you follow?
Facetiousism. Never heard of it? Weird.

2. What religion were you raised as?
Christian. We were never a crazy religious family but we were definitely had the Christian faith instilled in us growing up.

3. Do you believe that forgiveness is a religious property, or a human property?
I would hope human. I know that no god is going to make me forgive someone if I’m not ready to. I think forgiveness is just human nature as long as the crime committed against you wasn’t that horrible. Once it gets on a big scale then it probably is more of a religious property (ie. Someone kills you kid while driving drunk). It could only take an extreme fear/belief in some sort of Religious retribution to get me to forgive that.

4. Do you believe in magic?
Why not? I like to keep my mind as open as possible, life is more fun that way.

5. What was the last promise you broke?
Something along the lines of “I’ll be with you forever”

6. Do you believe that anyone could be perfect?
No. And this is a stupid question.

7. Did you get everything you wanted over the last holiday season?
I wanted to win the multi million, so no. But I got cool gifts and got to spend time with my family. Couldn’t ask for much more.

8. Regarding your future, what is the best thing you could hope for?
Good health and happiness for me and everyone close to me.

9. Do you let yourself get your hopes up for something even if you know that there is a large chance of failure?
All the F’ing time. That’s like the perfect descriptor of my romantic life.

10. Have you ever bought a lottery ticket?
I realized a few months ago I’m going to have to start doing that if I ever intend to win the lotto.

11. Do you gamble?
I’m a shitty gambler. I don’t see the sense wasting actual-in-your-hand-money with tiny hopes of winning big money. The lotto is one thing because it’s a dollar every now and then. Casinos I’ll use a 20 until it’s gone and then I’m gone. I just can’t do it.

CHARITY

1. What causes do you support?
Anything that helps people in need essentially. People who are being denied rights, people who are poor, people who are sick. Things like that.

2. What causes have you given money or time to?
Red Cross, Breast Cancer Society, some animal charities and I’ll give extra dollars if I’m ever asked when I’m at a retail store and they are collecting for some charity.

3. Have you ever worked in a soup kitchen or done another kind of outreach for the homeless?
Nah. I feel like I should but like every other asshole I just never find the time.

4. Would you ever consider joining the Peace Corps, Amnesty International, or another travel-inherent worldwide charity group?
I would love to join any of those. Cindy always makes me jealous that I didn’t even THINK join the Peace Corps when I was younger because she talks about it because it sounds so fucking emotionally rewarding.

5. Do you give money to the homeless on the street?
Nope – food only. I’m weird about giving out money to homeless people.

6. Have you ever helped out a friend with basic needs, like rent or food?
I’ve helped out far too many people financially. Us Angels just kind of do that stuff.

7. What’s the greatest extent you’ve gone to help a friend in need?
I think one of the biggest ones I did was drive to Quantico (A marine base) to pick up a friend (who went home with a drunk Marine who got a DUI going through the gate) when I myself had been drinking. It was 3 in the morning and I had just arrived home – the cops called and asked if I could come get her – who would say no?

FORTITUDE

1. What are you most afraid of?
Myself, how I’ll end up being 10 years from now. It sounds weird. I’m just really scared I won’t live up to my potential. I never want to settle and I’m scared I’ll give up and have to. I’m not that type to just family off and have that be enough for me. I want to accomplish things, I want to travel, I want to really, really live my life. There is always time to settle down. I just am scared of what is to come I guess.

2. What did you do today that was really brave?
I dunno. I mean, over the last week or so I’ve seriously started looking into purchasing this townhouse in Dumfries. By myself. I’m only 24. I think that’s incredibly brave.

3. Who is your favorite super hero, and why?
The Hulk. I just have a soft spot for him. He’s twice as sexy now that I think of Ed Norton when I think of Bruce Banner.

4. Would you put your life in danger to rescue someone?
I’d like to believe I would. Depends on the situation and circumstances to be honest, I wouldn’t know until it was unfolding in my face. Anyone who answers that with an outright yes is a liar. Unless you are a parent and are talking about your child. Then, obviously, you would put their life before yours in any circumstance.

5. If you were to face the Wizard of Oz, would you want more courage, more brains, or more heart?
More brains I guess. I’ve got plenty of courage and heart. You can never be too smart.

6. Have you ever gotten stage fright?
For like 10 seconds, but I’ve never let it stop me from getting on stage (if that’s what you are implying).

7. Do you consider yourself to be a leader or a follower?
Leader. Its just how I am. I try to follow but I’m not much good at it.

JUSTICE

1. Have you ever been summoned for jury duty?
Nah.

2. If they reinstituted the draft (for both genders), would you go, or would find some way out of it?
It honestly depends. I won’t fight for a cause I don’t support just because my President decides it’s the best choice for the country. If it was a world war or something though – I mean, I guess I would do what was required of me. I’d die instantly in the field, I’m sure. I’d probably focus on trying to get some sort of non-combat job overseas.

3. Do you support capital punishment (the death penalty)?
I’m completely down the middle here. I don’t like someone being able to decide who lives and dies. It’s not right. But I also believe that when someone takes a life, they sign theirs away. It’s not fair to let them live and then on top of that make the public pay to support them in jail where they get 3 meals a day, TV time, candy bars, visitations…I cant seem to pick a side. I also don’t think there is a honestly fair way to draw the line of what deserves death and what doesn’t. What if a woman kills a man because he is attacking her? You’d think she wouldn’t be sentenced to die, self defense.  Now what if it was a man who killed a woman who was attacking him? It isn’t as obvious is it? How can we determine premeditation? How can we determine just cause? Bleh. It’s too grey-area.

4. Which should be guaranteed legal: cocaine, marijuana, heroin?
Marijuana should be legal. End of story. I’d love to say only for medicinal purposes but the truth is it’s no different than drinking. A vice is a vice but its unfair for a crop (that could revitalize our economy) is being deemed a “hard” drug because the tobacco industry didn’t want the competition centuries ago. It’s ridiculous. My main bother is that if you have ever talked to someone who was allowed to use it medicinally you’d know how much it can help their standard of living. Someone with pancreatic or colon cancer, someone with an aggressive disease where they are basically waiting to die in extreme pain – why the fuck would we not let them have an out, a way to be happy, a way to be able to keep their eyes open, a way to stop shaking long enough to have a conversation with friends, a way to be able to laugh again?? Marijuana can do that for them. I feel very strongly about this. I’m sorry. Cocaine and heroin – habit forming. Pot – not. Yes, TECHNICALLY you can become addicted to pot, but fucking seriously, you can become addicted to anything (the new one is internet addiction!!). So I really feel that the whole “gateway drug” argument is archaic and has too many holes.

5. Do you believe that Dubya is rightfully President of the USA?
Possession is 9/10ths of the law. So I guess if he’s sitting there then yeah, he is.

6. What was your favorite media circus trial?
Um. I guess OJ Simpson’s. Mainly because the whole sub context of his trial was epic in our judicial history. We were a divided nation and honestly, we were divided on race. I think that his trial showed that race will always be an issue and more importantly if you let that become the focus – you lose the hard facts and a guilty man goes free. Now I know you will probably say, “but Kathy, he was found not guilty.” Well how someone can be found not guilty of committing the actual murders but can be found “responsible” for the deaths in a civil suit – I don’t know. Also, anyone who goes through that whole hoopla (“Oh I loved my wife, I’d never even begin to think about hurting her, I’m so sad, blah blah blah”) to eventually write a book entitled If I Did It, Here’s How it Happened is a complete slap in the face to our entire nation and judicial system. That’s admitting guilt for the right price. That’s like saying – fuck you guys America, you dumb, dumb idiots, I totally got off scott-free. FAAAAAAAAACE!

TEMPERANCE

1. What do you have the hardest time moderating yourself on?
Everything. I have what I like to consider one of the most addictive personalities I know. If I find something I like, I do it to excess. Everything. Moderation is not in my vocabulary, unfortunately. It’s a fault.

2. Do you collect anything?
Hippos. Cause I love them.

3. Are you addicted to anything?
No. I certainly am not. Well, maybe to porn…(har har)

4. Have you ever put anything on layaway or used an installment plan?
Nope. I honestly still believe the concept of layaway is a myth.

5. What’s your preferred method of paying for things?
Debit Card. Credit Cards scare me (again, moderation issues) and fuck a bunch of checks.

6. Tell us one thing you wish you hadn’t let yourself do:
Nothing that I can think of. I’m pretty proud of about 97% of my life choices thus far I’d say. Go me.

7. Do you feel that you obsess over things?
Yes. Can’t help it. I’ve always been a worry wart. Seriously, my mom has this story that always gets told about how, when I was 7, I would cry over the state of living for children in China. Its like if there is something to worry over, I start. Luckily I’m getting better.

PRUDENCE

1. Who is the wisest person you know?
My mom. I mean, she just knows the answer to everything. It’s almost creepy. I know she’s 60 but she just has this innate understanding of the world that I’ll never get. She’s so organized, shes so prepared,  I can call her anytime to ask her about anything and she’ll have the answer. Actually, my dad too. Old people are weird.

2. Have you ever participated in a vigil?
No, I assume it’ll happen at some point in my life.

3. Do you take advice when it’s given?
I try. I’m very headstrong so I’ll tend to do whatever I feel is right in my gut. I love advice but I think the point is you are supposed to listen to advice and then follow how you feel (seeing as the advice may completely change that).

4. What area are you wisest in?
I have no clue. I’d say I’m probably more spread out in knowledge then anything else. I’m not super smart on one specific thing, but I know a decent amount and I’m good with what I know.

5. Do you drive defensively?
To a fault.

6. Have you ever had unprotected sex outside of marriage?
That’d be a sin.

7. What did you learn today?
That coffee + no breakfast = STARVING KATHY!   J
