20 Questions about me:

1. HOW TALL ARE YOU?

 Little me is only 5′ 0″

2. DO YOU HAVE A HIDDEN TALENT? IF SO, WHAT?

Let’s see I can play Twinkle Twinkle on a piano, I am also pretty good a drawing and crafty stuff. My kids when they were little use to love this hidden talent of mine, I would take soap in my hand and make a HUGE bubble. Then gently blow it off my hand onto there hand. During bath time I would sit and blow bubble off my hand. Every so often my daughter will ask me to do it for her 🙂

3. WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST BLOG-RELATED PET PEEVE?

CAPTCHA, I understand it’s for security but I hate it. I recently was on a site that I couldn’t comment unless I subscribed to the blog and I didn’t understand why I had to do that just to comment it was like NOPE. I think that is just to pushy.

I also hate when a book comes out and it doesn’t say if it is a book 1 or 2 it drives me crazy because I have a serious OCD about reading books in order. I plan to explain in a blog post coming soon 😉

4. WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST NON-BLOG RELATED PET-PEEVE?

DO NOT STAND CLOSE TO ME 🙂 I have a thing about my personal space and if someone is standing very close to me I tend to take a step back, I have mastered the art of moving ever so slowly away from a close talker/stander. This is a HUGE Pet-peeve!

5. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE SONG?

Eck! This is a hard one, I have such a mix of music that I listen to and it depends on my mood. When I am doing work/graphics I listen to the Harry Potter Soundtrack. When I am driving in the car after work it’s Christina Perri or 80’s Music when I am driving to work it’s Rock music. I can’t really pin point on song but I will tell you I LOVE Christina Perri’s Albums Head or Heart & Lovestrong! I listen on a constant loop.

6. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE ETSY SHOP?

I recently bought one thing from Etsy but I wouldn’t say it was my favorite, I only found it through a google search. I know they have really unique things but never really spent anytime checking it out.

7. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO SPEND YOUR FREE TIME WHEN YOU’RE ALONE?

Free Time? Alone? I don’t know these words. LOL Well during school days I have off on Friday so I get a good 6 hours alone while the kids are at school and hubby is at work, so I turn off everything in the house (lights, TV) and sit at the kitchen table and do blogging stuff, then I read for an hour or more then I go get the kids. To me that is a perfect way to spend alone 🙂

8. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE JUNK FOOD?

Popcorn & Pretzels I LOVE them, I can eat them all the time if weight wasn’t a factor.

9. DO YOU HAVE PETS?

10. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE FICTION AND NON-FICTION BOOKS?

Isn’t this question illegal to ask a book blogger? Because you honestly want me to pick my favorite Fiction books? Like BOOKS! How about I give you 10 that I adore and none of them are non-fiction I don’t read that 🙂 Totally cheating and adding series.

  1. Lords of Deliverance & Demonica Series by Larissa Ione
  2. Cutlass by Ashley Nixon
  3. Harry Potter (all of them)
  4. The Hero’s Guide Series
  5. The Monstrumologist Series
  6. Juliet by Anne Fortier
  7. The Keepers Series by Lain Tanner
  8. The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein series by Kenneth Oppel
  9. The Books of Elsewhere series by Jacqueline West
  10. Wheel of Time Series ( I only read a few but I loved them)

11. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE BEAUTY PRODUCT?

Would you be shocked if I told you I didn’t have any and very rarely wear make-up. I buy whatever, no favorites.

12. WHEN WERE YOU LAST EMBARRASSED?

Last winter, I went out to walk the dog, it was very cold and icy and we had piles of snow all over the place, the sidewalk was so narrow because of the huge mounds of snow with a narrow passage between them. The Dog and I walk really nice in front of the house and start to walk down the street and BAM I fall on a sheet of ice right in the snow. I got up quickly and laughed the entire way walking the dog…wait I’m not done…As I was walking back I was still laughing and as I got to the same spot, not sure what I was thinking, BAM I fell again same spot into the same patch of snow. At this point I was laughing so hard but I than noticed the guy standing on the porch across the street and know for sure he saw the whole thing *hides face*

13. IF YOU COULD DRINK ONE BEVERAGE FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

COFFEE!!! Cream no sugar please.

14. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE?

I have a list 🙂 I can’t pick just one

  • Gone with the Wind
  • Meet me in St. Louis
  • The Burbs
  • While You were Sleeping
  • Labyrinth
  • Harry Potter (all of them, seriously)
  • The Princess Bride
  • Westward the Woman

This is in no order, I love all of these movies and can pretty much say them word for word, especially Labyrinth and The Princess Bride. While you were sleeping I can watch a million times like Harry Potter and not get bored. Gone with the Wind is just amazing and I adore Meet me in St Louis, I can sing along nicely with Judy Garland 🙂 I love old classic movies, I blame my mom. Don’t get me started on Westward the Woman, If you never saw it you MUST! Horror/Hilarious watch the Burbs, that movie cracks me up.

15. WHAT WERE YOU IN HIGH SCHOOL? PROM QUEEN, NERD, CHEERLEADER, JOCK, VALEDICTORIAN, BAND GEEK, LONER, ARTIST, ETC?

I was a Band Geek Artist Nerd who was very shy.

16. IF YOU COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD YOU LIVE?

Does Disney Count?

17. PC OR MAC?

I am a MAC Girl, my first computer was a mac and I have had no other type of computer, EVER.

18. LAST ROMANTIC GESTURE FROM A CRUSH, DATE, BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND?

My husband broke my new Jack Mug and made it a soup bowl 😉 He felt so bad he went out to find me a new one but they didn’t have it so he got me some really cool Nightmare Before Christmas Drink Glasses I thought that was super sweet of him since he didn’t have to get me them 🙂 Plus he makes me coffee in the morning on the weekends (since he leaves during the week for work before I wake up) I always think the perfect guy will make you coffee in the morning 🙂

19. FAVORITE CELEB?

Be prepared to be shocked again, I don’t have one.

20. WHICH BLOGGER DO YOU SECRETLY WANT TO BE BEST FRIENDS WITH?

I have a lot of blogs that I follow and the people behind the blogs that I chat with, I would love to become better friends with them but I don’t think I have just one. The group of people that I do chat with I adore and would love to be able to stay chatting with them and get to know them and have them get to know me. Commenting on blogs has been hard for me lately but don’t count me out yet, I am really trying and I love visiting and chatting with you!

  1. You are taller than I am, though since that is pretty much everyone I have ever met who is no longer a child… *laughs* I’m 4’11”, and with my long hair, I’m constantly being mistaken for anywhere from 12 to ‘maybe’ 22. And I’m 37. So, constant source of amusement for me.

    Your animals are adorable! (Well, not the crabs. But those are neat, just not, like, adorable. *grins* )

  2. Oh my…you’re a tiny thing! And I love the fact your daughter still wants you to make soap bubbles for her!

    It is not cheating, by the way. It’s not wanting to play favorites among the favorites 😉 And yes, CAPTCHA and personal-space invaders are both annoying!

    • THe only space invader I allow besides my children is the dog. I just can’t stand close talker. If you whisper in my ear without telling me before hand I go into kung fu mode. Just a warning 🙂

      I love doing the soap bubbles for her. She still giggles when I do it.

      I am not TINY I am vertically challenged 😀

  3. These kinds of posts are so much fun! It’s a great way to get to know you better, Michelle. I have been tagged, too, but I have to see when I’ll find the time to actually write up a whole post… *sighs* I have a paper due on Monday, and I haven’t started yet. I don’t know what’s wrong with me!
    Have a great weekend 🙂

  4. Thansk for tagging me, I’ll see if I can fit this in my schedule somewhere. I love those pictures of your pets, you certainly have an animal filled house ;). Asking a blogger to choose their favourite book should be illegal indeed, I always hate that questions and I probably won’t even be able to do a top 10. I agree with your pet peeve, I hate it when people invade my personal space. It really rubs me wrong.

  5. I don’t wear make up anymore because my rosacea does not like it. I agree that the favorite book question should be illegal to ask a blogger. Seriously. And when we finally meet Berls and she gives us a hug she’s going to smother us in her boobies. LOL

  6. I FOUND SOMEONE SHORTER THAN ME! It’s not usual because I too am a shortie (5’2) and I flaunt my tallness when I can (this is probably why I take so many pictures of my brother’s shiatsu mix . . .) I will have to do this soon, cuz yay TAGS.
