Meghan from Particle Woman invited me to participate in this little 20 things questionairre, and because I really enjoyed reading hers and getting to know her a little better, I agreed to play!
Question 1: How tall are you?
I’m 5’5” but online people always assume I’m taller.
Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?
A Hidden talent? Not really, I try to actualize my talents and pursue my passions.
Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
My typos! Maybe that’s my hidden talent, I have a real flair for the typo. And when people use the word “musings” in their blog title- it kind of drives me bonkers.
Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?
Hmm… apathy. Deliberate ignorance. Lack of self awareness. People who use the R-word.
Question 5: What’s your favorite song?
Who can pick one favorite?! I can’t, but this one speaks to me. And also, this video makes me chuckle.
Question 6: What’s your favorite Etsy shop that isn’t yours?
Knitted Wit makes gorgeous colorful yarns!
Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?
I love taking and editing photos, knitting, weaving, but when I get a chance, nothing beats reading a book in the hammock. Heaven.
Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food?
Mmmm, pimento cheese. But I’d take any kind of chip and dip.
Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
Murphy, Tiberius, Kitty, Ernie
Big Henry, Sugar, Pepe, Piggy
Question 10: What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?
Time Traveler’s Wife and The Girl’s Guide to Hunting and Fishing are two books (both fiction) I could read again and again and books that are special to my heart, because they are my husbands favorite book too, and we bonded over our love for them when we were courting.
Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product?
Maybelline Dream Lumi Highlighting concealer, and L’Oreal Voluminous Millions Extreme mascara.
Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
I was recently embarassed at work when a colleague in a position several levels above me basically called me stupid in an email that several people were copied on. It was really hard for me, and hard on my pride, but in the end, it wasn’t received well so I’ve mostly been able to shake it off and move on and take the high road. But it was tough.
Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Assuming you don’t mean cocktails (because I love cocktails and could never pick just one) I think the only thing I drink besides water is sparkling water. I like the bubbles. I drink a lot of sparkling water. Henry calls is “Pink” and he likes it too.
Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?
Harry Potter, all of them.
Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?
I guess I was a loser, but I don’t think much about it anymore. I knew at the time that high school wasn’t real life, I hated it, but always had an eye on the future.
Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
Colorado probably, assuming I was gainfully employed and could afford it.
Question 17: PC or Mac?
Both, also iPad.
Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?
Josh makes my white wine spritzers, does my laundry, and rubs my feet. What could be more romantic than that?
Question 19: Favorite celebrity?
Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want be best friends with?
There is a whole world of people I love online and wish I could spend more time with in real life. I’m fortunate to be real life best friends with my very favorite ex-blogger, Josh from Berg With Fries.
I’m supposed to tag friends to play, but I’d love to know more about EVERYONE who takes the time to stop by my little piece of the internet, so tag! Leave me a link in the comments with your 20 things!
