Blogging is lots of fun, but I confess that sometimes I feel a bit intimidated, like I’m blogging into a great white space. I want to know more about the people who read my blog. What do we have in common? How are we different? What’s your social security number?
Okay, that last one might be stretching it. But I do enjoy getting to know you a bit better. Today I’m asking YOU to jump in and tell me a little something about yourself. I’ll even help you by providing a few deep and probing questions. And, of course, I’ll play along! That’s 18% of the fun!
What is your favorite Disney Movie?
Tough call. Swiss Family Robinson is a sentimental favorite, because I remember Memaw taking us to see it in the theater, along with a big grocery bag of popcorn from home. And I adored all the Love Bug movies and the Apple Dumpling Gang. But all time favorite has to be Mary Poppins. It was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (even though the sound of it was something quite atrocious!:) ) I’ll bet that song would still drive my parents crazy. I think I’ll give them a call them to see if they remember it. I don’t think 7 a.m. is too early for that.
Have you ever won a trophy?
Yes, I have won numerous trophies in my life. I won a basketball trophy in junior high, a couple of bowling trophies, a few softball trophies, and a customer service trophy at work. A Pulitzer can only be next. (Note to Goodwill shoppers: Don’t be surprised if you see any of the aforementioned trophies at a store near you! Except the Pulitzer. I’ll be keeping it.)
What would be the very first thing you would do if you won the lottery?
After dropping to my knees in profound gratitude (and possibly a bit of shock), I’d quit my job. Considering I work for myself, I’d be nice about it. No going out with a dramatic double bird-flip or anything like that. And then I’d put everything I treasure into a storage unit, give away the rest, and hit the road for a really, really long road trip. Oh, I’d stop at a car dealership first.
What’s your favorite spice or seasoning?
Cayenne pepper. I put it on almost everything, except my yogurt sundae. I don’t use much, but I love how even a little can perk up a dish.
When was the last time you said, “I’m glad I don’t have that job”?
The last time I drove by a Wal-mart.
If you could be a professional athlete what sport would you play?
After careful consideration, I think I’ll go with baseball. First, there are all those softball trophies as evidence of my ability (baseball, softball: how different can they be?), and then there’s the fact that you spend a good bit of the game sitting in the dugout eating sunflower seeds. (I suspect I’d get on my teammates’ nerves sweeping up the spent shells, though.) Also, I like that the uniforms suit my body style: tight pants to emphasize my shapely thighs and a blouse-y top to de-emphasize my squish belly.
Now it’s YOUR turn. Tell me a little something about yourself! Here’s a quick list to make it simpler:
See? Now you have no excuse! Answer as many or few as you wish! And thank you for playing along!
