Both Naomi and Emma tagged me for this tag that Naomi just happened to make up, and you know I find it almost impossible to resist a tag, unless I'm heinously busy or it is boring. I'm not toooo busy, and this isn't boring, so here goes ;-)
The rules for the tag are:
~ Paste the button onto your blog post.
~ Leave a new list of questions (or just pass on the question list you answered) and tag a few people of your random choice (and say why you tagged them, if you have time!) (Be original and nonsensical in your question-creativity - make the blogging world a cheerful place :-) And be disastrously random.)
Now for the fun...
~Write down three facts about you - one of them is WRONG. Let your commenters guess in the comments which one is wrong (and tell them in the comments after a while)
~Answer the questions of the person who tagged you - make it all super random and interesting :-D
Three Facts About Me -- and One of These is WRONG! Can you guess which one?
- I've traveled by car, bus, airplane, helicopter, speedboat, canoe, rowboat, and cruise ship.
- I've been inside all 50 of the United States.
- I've visited Canada, Mexico, Poland, and Ukraine.
My Answers to Naomi's Questions
Are there flowers in your bedroom? Yes -- there are some dried lilacs and dried lavender by my sewing machine.
Who was your first - really first - (fictional) crush? Jim Craig (Tom Burlinson) in The Man from Snowy River (1983). I have loved him since I was 3 years old.
What is, in your opinion, the prettiest Little House Book cover?
That's the edition I got when I was a little girl, and I have always loved that one best. Mostly because I want to be Laura, riding a horse out on the prairie.
On pictures, do you smile with your teeth or without? Both. Depends on the situation.
In 'Return to Cranford' Miss Matty gets a turban. What do you think of her in a turban? I haven't seen Cranford OR Return to Cranford (please continue reading when you've revived after your fainting spell). However, thanks to IMDB.com, I know she's played by Dame Judi Dench, and Dame Judi can wear anything, so I'm sure she's a mixture of ravishing and adorable and a little bit intimidating.
Did you get fooled this year on April the 1st? Nope.
Do you think it's rude when girls re-do their whole hairstyle in public? No. I re-braid or re-ponytail mine in public when necessary. Always making sure I won't hit someone in the face with it, of course.
What's your least favourite song in 'The Sound of Music?' "Something Good." Too Catholic and too boring for my taste.
Do you chew your inside cheeks when you're thinking? No. I do sometimes tap my teeth together when thinking, and I also pinch my lips together when I'm reading something and having a hard time concentrating on it.
Your how-many-ienth post is this? 867th on this blog!
What's your favourite Dickens movie? The Patrick Stewart version of A Christmas Carol (1999).
What should you be doing right now? Figuring out crafts for my Sunday School class.
My Answers to Emma's Questions
What was the last blog you visited? Besides Emma's and Naomi's to get these questions? The Meanderings of Me, a new blog I've just found and started following.
What is one of your favorite movie soundtracks to listen to? The Lone Ranger (2013), composed and produced by Hans Zimmer. I bought this soundtrack when the movie came out, two summers ago, and I have yet to put it on my CD shelves. It lives beside my little CD player in the kitchen, and I listen to it at least once a week still. My favorite tracks are #3, "Ride," and #10, "Finale."
What's the absolute weirdest movie you've ever seen? The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988). It's by Terry Gilliam, so no surprise that it's incomprehensible and wacky.
What are the first flowers to bloom in the spring where you live? By my house? Usually my daffodils. Here are some this year:
What is the longest book you've ever read? Nonfiction? I don't know. Fiction would be The Count of Monte Cristo -- my copy is 1243 pages long.
Are you on Goodreads? Technically, yes. But I don't have time to actually use it.
Have you ever been in a musical production before? I have! I was in the chorus for three different Gilbert and Sullivan productions in college: The Sorceror, The H.M.S. Pinafore, and The Yoemen of the Guard. Photographic proof:
Now remember that those were long, long ago -- in 1999, 2000, and 2001 :-) My favorite is the blue and pink dress from The Sorceror, and wouldn't you know it? That's the one I don't have a full-length photo of. It was so comfortable, and I'd totally wear it in "real life."
Is your mailbox on the same side of the street as your house, or do you have to cross the street to get to it? Same side.
Do you subscribe to any magazines? Yup! Right now I subscribe to Entertainment Weekly and Better Homes and Gardens, and my husband subscribes to Answers Magazine from Answers in Genesis, National Geographic.
Would you ever consider dying your hair? Yes. I've dyed it various shades of red and auburn three times, and in college I did blue and purple, but only on the ends.
Is there a particular actress you think you look like? I like to think I look a little like Julia Stiles. We both have round faces, anyway. I'm not blonde, though.
Do you decorate your bedroom with pictures of period dramas? As a matter of fact, I have pictures from the WWII-set TV show Combat! above my sewing corner.
