I was Blog-tagged this morning by Kana’s Chronicles. This link will take you to her answers. These are the rules:
- Post the rules (check!)
- Answer the 11 questions the tagger set for you in their post
- Create 11 new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged
- Tag eleven people & let them know
She wrote eleven new questions for my class of tag-ees, and here we go:
- What’s your favorite bumper sticker? PB4ULV
- What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? A deep-fried cricket, while on vacation in Mexico — I made the horrible mistake of biting into it, instead of tossing it down. BLECHHHHHHHH!
- What’s the kindest thing that a stranger has ever done for you? The kindest thing….When I was 23, I took the bus to Denver, CO to hook back up with my fiance for the wedding. I was scared out of my wits! A nice woman, about my age, saw how scared I was, and leaned over to introduce herself. I don’t remember her name — all I remember is that she said she was from Bozo, Idunno, which got a laugh from me. She moved over to my seat, and we spent the next three days laughing and talking about our lives. When we parted company in Denver, I almost wished we had further to go; I was having that much fun. Not the trip I expected.
- What’s something you’re great at? I’m great at a lot of really bad things, but in the spirit in which I believe the question is intended, I’m pretty great at descriptive writing, because I love it so much.
- What’s something you’re terrible at? Same circumstance as #4, above, but opposite. I am terrible at writing dialogue.
- Who’s your favorite superhero (and why)? I haven’t thought about her in a long time, but I think I’d say WonderWoman. I really loved the invisible plane, and the wristbands!
- What was the last thing that made you laugh out loud? Joke #354 from http://thelaughinghousewife.wordpress.com/2012/03/13/Joke-354/ (I don’t dare put in a link — I’m afraid my post might get put in Spam.)
- What’s your least favorite Rule to follow? (Do you follow it?) Least favorite? Got a few years to read? Seriously, my least favorite rule came from when I was a kid. We were not allowed to fight verbally or physically; to do so brought down the wrath of Mom and Dad. To quote Bill Cosby, from Himself, “Parents aren’t interested in justice. They want QUIET!”
- What’s the ring-tone on your phone? Since I can’t find my phone, I can’t find the name, but it is some generic Samba from Consumer Cellular.
- What quirky habit are you willing to confess to? I have the world’s most unmanageable hair, but not for the reason you’d think. Mine is straight, fine, and thick, and it certainly has a mind of it’s own. My quirk is always checking it — touching it, shaking it, looking at it in windows, spending an hour getting it just right, and then walking into the wind and losing it all again!
- When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? (Any resemblance to your life now?) I do not have a clue what I wanted to be when I was a little kid, except maybe not a hollow shell of myself. (That’s really more like when I was 45, but I was still acting like a kid, so I guess it counts.)
Now, eleven new questions:
- What’s your favorite book? Why?
- At what age did you decide to write, and why did you wait till then, (or start right away, whichever applies?)
- Do you take a strong stand on any political issue? Which one? Why?
- Where were you New Year’s Eve, 1999?
- What is your favorite breakfast? Did you eat it today?
- Do you watch TV news? Why or why not?
- Who is your favorite cartoon character?
- Which genre of music do you most love? Which artist?
- Have you had your colors done? Are you summer, winter, spring or fall? If you haven’t had them done, which would you guess? (Try Google to see different levels of color analysis. Believe me, if you get it right, you’ll look great in your colors for the rest of your life. Men, too.)
- What most embarrassing thing happened to you in the last month?
- Are you where you want to be in your life? Why, or why not?
As for tagging others, I quote Kana, from Kana’s Chronicles:
In the spirit of #8, I’m going to break the tag-rules and tag YOU, dear reader, rather than picking a specific eleven people. If you’re feeling playful enough to participate, I’ll look forward to your answers!
I recommend doing this — it’s a nice self-awareness exercise, and then making up the questions is a great challenge for you
