Today's quotes are from Ellen Degeneres:

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 was a tween, in middle school when I started working as a babysitter

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. my father's parents are the grandparents I was closer to. My love of reading comes from them... they both were always reading something. I miss them.

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? I'm a definite procrastinator at home but not at work

4. "Sometimes you can't see yourself clearly until you see yourself through the eyes of others." What would others say about you? I don't really know... I'd like to think they'd say I'm a good listener and a good friend, a good person. Interesting and intelligent.

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? not like our life

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? Yes, my goddaughter turned 20 recently and I did a post about her--she's my baby

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? N.E.V.E.R. never ever

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? a former student

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? yes... and I'm hoping I keep going since I just joined a couple of weeks ago... it's Wednesday and I haven't gone this week... whoops!

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 go with my intuition often, so I'd say yes, I balance my brain smarts with my inner smarts

these were some great questions, I could relate to almost every one LOL! procrastinator ... that's me, at home, at work, everywhere, and it's something I dislike about myself.

I swear gyms make all their money from the people who feel better about themselves by merely joining. I hope your week is gaing well, Allison...
