Question 1: How tall are you? 5'7"
Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what? I'm very, very good at keeping secrets.
Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve? I actually refuse to follow any blog that does not provide a way for me to navigate their old posts. If there's no "labels" or "archive" section anywhere, I can't see if you've ever written about anything else that might interest me. And I don't have time to hit "previous post" over and over and over.
Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve? Cereal bags that are hard to open.
Question 5: What’s your favorite song? "Mack the Knife," any version sung by Bobby Darin.
Question 6: What’s your favorite Etsy shop that isn’t yours? I've bought more things from The Ring and the Lion than any other store. The owner has made me a lot of custom LOTR-related items, and I've also randomly bought things she's made that have struck my fancy.
Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone? Not being interrupted. It's a rare privilege.
Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food? Cheetos and Oreos. Not at the same time, though.
Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names? We currently have a purple Betta fish named Winter.
Question 10: What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books? Nonfiction would be the Bible. Fiction would be Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.
Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product? Pantene conditioner.
Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened? I felt mildly embarrassed on Sunday when I started explaining the craft to all the moms and little kids in Sunday school, and no one paid any attention because I was talking too quietly.
Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be? Coca-cola.
Question 14: What’s your favorite movie? The Man from Snowy River.
Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep? I was homeschooled K-12, but in college, I was in the writerly group, on the fringe of the theatre group, and friends with lots of the artists. Nerdly, vehemently non-preppy, unarguably non-jock.
Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? I love my house, so here is good.
Question 17: PC or Mac? PC.
Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse? My husband kissed me on the nose when I said good night to him. He has a cold, so he went to bed early, and also kissed my nose instead of my lips so he wouldn't spread germs. Even though I had the cold already.
Question 19: Favorite celebrity? Hugh Jackman. He reminds me a lot of myself, actually.
Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want be best friends with? If by that you mean, "What blogger(s) would you like to meet in real life because you think you could be real life friends too," then Kara and Heidi :-) EDIT: And Joanna! How did I forget Joanna? Oops! Let's blame it on Hugh Jackman distracting me with his kind smile.
