What is that saying – “okay enough about me. Let’s talk about you. What do you think about me?”
I answered the first set of questions on Tuesday. You might have missed it. The cacophony of crickets chirping might have made it so you couldn’t concentrate on my bits of brilliance. Anyway…here are the rest of the questions posed by you. My loyal readers. My fan club. My personal quorum of stalkers…
My best friend Cindy Sue. My friend I visited in San Antonio. My co-conspirator. My partner in crime. Who doesn’t blog. But she should. Asks:
Do you like the edges, corner, or middle of a brownie batch?
Yes, please. But if you are going to force me to choose – I like the edge. I like that little bit of crunch.
Do you know anyone who has ever attended a bridesmaid's luncheon while wearing a hat?
So, I guess I have to come clean. A while ago, I did a post about things that I had never done. And one of those things was that I had never worn a hat. After I published, it was just a few hours before I got a call.
Cindy Sue: (With no preamble. No Hello. Nothing.) How much are you worth?
Me: Ummm…hardly anything.
Cindy Sue: Well…let me know when you are worth something. Because I am ready to bribe you.
Cindy Sue: I just so happen to have a picture of a certain someone. At a bridal shower. Wearing a hat.
Me: Was I drunk? I have no memory of this at all.
Cindy Sue: I have the evidence. The proof. The beginning of your demise. Bwahhahahahahah…
Don’t you love best friends?
Insane Mama formerly of Help I have a Teenager. Now in hiding. Asks: What is your smuttiest book?
Oh, that’s an easy one. Colters’ Woman by Maya Banks. I think it’s illegal in 24 states.
The Sits girls want to know: If you had a son, what would you have named him?
When I was pregnant with Madalyn we were all convinced that she was a boy. I have no idea as to why. Perhaps because Katie insisted. And we just went with it. Until we had the ultra sound where it was quite obvious there was a girl in there. But if she was a boy, we were going to name him Jakob Dylan. I have this thing for spelling things a little off.
Are you going to be super-psycho-involved when Lost returns in 134 days? Because I will be...and I need to gather my obsessive peeps around me at that time.
I am always super psycho involved in LOST. Are ya’ll watchin’ LOST? You have time. Netflix the first seasons and get caught up. Just over one hundred days before it starts again. I like to watch LOST a few days after it comes on. I know…it’s strange. But I like to wait. Because, if I wait, then all the theories and little details are posted on Lostpedia. And I hate to not know what I just saw! It’s a rare event that I’ll actually catch something.
Last year I managed to catch the stuff about Daniel Faraday – but only because we were actually studying about Faraday in Physics at the time. And I did catch that Charlotte was an homage to CS Lewis. But usually, I need to read to get all the little details. I don’t know how everyone catches those things! I love LOST!
Oh, I have another--but it's for Michael: What's your favorite imported beer? Domestic?
When Lula posted this query, Michael saw it in the comments section. Yes, my husband reads my blog and my comments. Yet he’s only commented twice. Once on the meme about googling your name plus the word needs. And secondly about euphemisms. But…when he saw this question…he wrote a dissertation. Just for Lula. All about his snobby beer favorites. I can’t recall what he said.
KimmyJ of the Cottage Cafe wants to know: What is your favortie book of all time?
I keep going on and on about this book. I read “Wicked” when it first came out in 1995 or was it 1996? And after I finished it…I just wasn’t sure as to what to think. I would pivot from loving it to hating it. And even five years after I read it…I still wavered. I read everything else that he wrote. (Do ya’ll do that? When you read a book that you like – do you go and read everything else that an author writes? Did you know that there is actually a word for that?? It’s called glomming.) But then on the 10th anniversary, my book club decided to read it…at the same time the sequel was released – “Son of a Witch.” On my second reading…the whole thing really clicked for me. And I LOVED it. There are so many levels to it. And I just love the way he takes a story we all know and then turns it on it’s head. And just a few weeks ago, the third book was released “A Lion Among Men.”
Lizzy from Journey to the Hot Tub asks: What are you doing Sunday afternoon?
Well…this was asked a month ago. As my first hint that Lizzy was coming to town. But for this week – Sunday I am hoping that I will have remembered to “fall back” on my clocks. Now, Saturday should be the day you are asking about. There is another blog summit. Wonder who I’ll be meeting this time??
Shannon from Welcome to the Nut House can't wait to find out: What are your favorite pizza toppings?
My mom loves pizza. She could eat it every day. Me…well, once a month is good for me. I like Pizza Hut. Pan pizza. With ham, beef, and mushrooms. Very little tomato sauce. Basically a glorified cheese toast. And I like the pizza I make, too. I make a white pizza. With alfredo sauce. Sauted garlic and mushrooms. Chicken. And mozzarella of course. Delish.
What do you think is your best feature?
My brain? Probably my hair. When Michael and were dating…I was the first one to say “I love you.” He wasn’t quite there yet. So he responded with “I love your hair.” Warmed the cockles of my heart. But…I do have good hair. Long. Thick. And curly. All thanks to pregnancy hormones. And then someone told me something awful. That when I hit menopause, my hair will go back to the way it was. Thin. Straight. And stringy. Getting old sucks.
Do you have any phobias? What are they?
No, I don’t think that I do. I asked my mom…and she says I must have a phobia about making my bed.
What is your favorite day of the week and why?
The days the housekeeper comes. Hands down. Amen.
I have two more questions to answer. And they are about Halloween - so I'll publish those on Thursday. Really. This Thursday. Without procrastination.
So…what about you? Pick one or two or three or ten of these questions – and tell me how you would have answered them.
It's supposed to be REM - What's the Frequency, Kenneth - but playlist is down. So, you'll have to hum it to yourself. Or just go with Snow Patrol. That might be easier...
