The Tag Game

Ok, so you know that I'm new to blog land, and I'm still learning the ropes.  Last week, I got "tagged" by Nicole at Destination Unknown (Yipes!  Tag? Is that like a button?).  So, I had to call Leanne to ask her about this tag and what the heck I was suppose to do.  After Leanne's explanation, I've finally gotten around to answering the questions from Nicole.  Here they are:

1. If you were allowed to only read one book for the rest of your life - what would you choose?

Since I don't read much now, I'd have a hard time picking a book.  The easy answer is "The Bible", but that's not MY answer.  Maybe "Green Eggs & Ham"?  I might get bored with that one after a few years.  I guess I'd have to ask for some recommendations from my friends/family who are avid readers.  I'd probably be looking for some type of romance novel -- not a "bodice-ripper" type, just a good old-fashioned romance novel.

2. Imagine you are on death row, and it's time to pick your last meal - what would it be?

Pizza, pizza and more pizza.  Oh, did I mention pizza?  Yup.  Pizza. 

3. If you had to do it again (or do it for the first time) - what type of wedding would you have??

Complete opposite of what we had (but doesn't everyone want to do the complete opposite of what their wedding was after the fact?)  Anyway, it would definitely be small, with immediate family and maybe one or two close friends only.  It would probably still be in a church, but then a great dinner somewhere overlooking a great view -- like the City of Chicago, or maybe the ocean. 

4. If you could live anywhere in the world - where would you choose and what type of dwelling would you live in?

I'm pretty happy where I live now and my current dwelling.  I would consider Italy (and that is probably where CT would want to live, since he has family there), but they don't use clothes dryers in Italy, and I refuse to hang my delicates on a clothes line for the world to see.  Otherwise, I would be happy to live in place that does not have brutally cold, snowy winters like we have here in Chicago. 

5. What are your thoughts on organized religion?

Whatever works for people - makes no difference to me.  To each his/her own, I say.

6. Describe your most embarrassing moment!

There are too many to describe, and frankly, I can't really remember any right now.  Wow - does that mean that I am secure enough in myself to not dwell anymore about what embarrassing things happen or what others think?  I'll have to ponder that one.

7. What are you most proud of? 

I had a really great career for a very long time, and I worked really hard for that career.  I was proof that hard work paid off, even if you didn't get straight A's in college.

8. Finally... who would be your arch nemesis and why??

Any skinny cook on any food/cooking show.  (There are several out there and they shall remain nameless.)  I don't trust skinny cooks who claim to eat everything they cook.  No way, no way, no way.  I've always said that between taping of the various cooking show segments, they have a bucket that they use to "dispose' of the food they are chewing!  Gross, I know.  Sorry!    :)

Ok, so now I'm suppose to "tag" others with some questions.  I'm only picking two, and they are my Scrapbook Cellar girls,


And your questions are (yes, I borrowed these questions from Leanne):

1. What is your all-time favorite movie (the one that you can watch over and over, when just hearing it in the back ground is enough to imagine exactly what is happening on the screen)?

2. Tell me about one Halloween costume you remember wearing as a child.

3. Why did you start blogging?

4. What makes you happy?

5. If you were able to go back in time, where would you go and why?

6. What was the last thing you bought at the grocery store?

7. How do you take your coffee? (If you don’t drink coffee … wait, let me get a handle on that … YOU DON’T DRINK COFFEE??? Ok, if you don’t drink coffee, then what is your favorite beverage?)

8. Brag a little . . . tell me about a recent RAK (random act of kindness) that you took part in.

Ok, thanks for playing the Tag Game.


  1. Well that was fun, it's great getting to know you. Stop by my blog and lets become blog friends!

  2. Sistah (a.k.a. 2E)August 30, 2010 at 10:42 AM

    Sistah - I LOVE your blog... Every word is so you. I loved that you stepped out of the zone and are doing something completely different. It is so wonderful and I am so jealous... I loved your answers to the questions, especially #7 and loved the Village blog, so funny. Keep writing, you are doing an amazing job! Love ya, Sistah

  3. Bodice ripping??? Oh.. heck.. I say bring that book! LOL

  4. Hey Nicole -- I really wanted to select a "bodice ripper" kinda book, but then I thought I would loose any and all readers of my blog -- well maybe except for you and Leanne! :) Thanks for your comments!

  5. These are fun!! Your sis tagged me;)

    Just gotta tell you...since you love pizza so much...we own a Domino's Pizza store!! LOL!

    And I agree with you...skinny cooks? Come on! That's why I adore Ina Garten I think!! She actually eats what she cooks.


I'd love to hear what you're thinking - feel free to leave me a comment!
