Tag You’re It!

February 11, 2012

Judi over at Livin Large tagged me in a fun meme on Thursday and considering I am always in for a fun blog post here we go!

Here are the rules…

#1 – Post these rules.

#2 – Answer the 11 questions from the person who tagged you.

#3 – Create 11 new questions for the people you tag.

#4 – Tag 11 people and link them to your post.
#5 – Let them know that you tagged them

1. If you could have 3 people over for a dinner party, who would they be (and a short why)?
Stephen King, Johnny Deep and Viggo Mortensen. I think it would be fun to pick their brains for a few hours as all of them have struck me as the sort of people capable of carrying on an intellectual conversation despite their celebrity status.
2. Who is your favourite author and why?
Stephen King. He is about the only one who has ever managed to give me the creeps consistently 🙂
3. What activities/clubs did you join in High School and what was your favourite
Drama Club. I was actually one of the founding members of the club too. It was a place for me to be someone important. No I never acted on stage but I learned Stage Managment really well and I loved it. If you ever want to know why I am good at organizing my life with all the gazillion things I do I can honestly say I owe it all to those four years in Drama Club.
4. Is there a movie that you can watch over and over again and never get sick of it?  Why?
I have an issue with repeating anything especially movie or books. I get bored really quickly. So a lot of time I have to leave a bunch of time between first and second run through of anything no matter how much I have enjoyed it 🙂
5.  Do you have any hobbies?  Tell us about them.
If it can be created or made I have probably tried it from one time or another. I knit, crochet, quilt, cross-stitch, sew, write, bake, garden, read. Yeah I think that covers everything 🙂
6.  Is there someone from your past that you have lost touch with but would like to have them back in your life…who is it and why?
My Mom. We haven’t spoken in years and I miss her.
7.  Tell us about your guilty pleasure
Coffee. Jamaican Blue Mountain to be exact. Any coffee drinker knows that that is more precious than gold and is about as expensive as gold 🙂 we are talking 35 bux per half a pound of beans folks. But I am telling you there isn’t a single cup of coffee in the world like it.
8.  Do you watch tv?  What are your 3 favourite shows (and if you don’t watch tv, tells us why you don’t)
Lately? Sanctuary, Numb3rs & Fringe but I watch a bunch of different stuff along those lines (CSI franchise, Criminal Minds, Dexter, LAPD Blue, Without a Trace … you get the point!)
9.  What did you want to be when you grew up? 
Me. I grew up thinking that being me wasn’t enough. So the one thing I wanted was to be myself and be accepted for who I was. Aside from that I think I would have to say Mom was a high priority on my list of things to do. Career wise I can assure  you it was not accounting. In high school I wanted to be a stage manager but you cant feed a growing family on that kind of a paycheque so I ended up in business admin and from there went to my current career in accounting.
10. Why did you start blogging?
Mostly for theraputic reasons. I tend to get down on myself a lot thinking that what I do isnt enough. Sometimes I have to step back and have a good look at what I do to remember that I am doing the best that I can with the time I have. I went public with this blog because so many people out there have said over the years I dont know how you do it. This is my way of answering that 🙂 And besides I know theres a bunch of you out there that get a kick out of my blogs every day and I wouldnt know how to let you guys down 🙂
11. Who do you most admire in your life? Tell us something about that person.
My Nan. Shes amazing. Shes 92 later this year and is still doing things for herself for the most part and shes learning new things every day. Im so proud of her 🙂

Now sadly I dont know 11 people who blog (I mean you readers out there may blog but I dont know it) So in the interest in keeping this meme going I am going to post my questions to you dear readers! IF you have a blog follow the rules and then post the answers to your blog and pop a link back here. If you dont have a blog and want to play along just answer the questions in the comments section!

1. If you could change one thing right now what would it be?
2. If you could be anywhere in the world right at this moment, where would you be?
3. List your favorite recipe (or food if you dont cook/bake) and why?
4. Which Peanuts character are you most like?
5. What is your worst bad habit?
6. What is the thing that annoys you the most?
7. What was the best mistake you ever made?
8.  Three wishes… what would they be?
9. The worst gift you ever received was?
10. Favorite time of the year?
11. Describe your life in 6 words.
Enjoy folks!
Until tomorrow…
