Tag - You're It

I love tag!   I haven't played it in years!   Of course, these days I probably couldn't run fast enough to NOT get tagged!   I'd always be "it."      Sarah tagged me and asked me to play.   Who can resist Sarah?  Not me!   And this is a fun way to get to know each other!

The rules say that I need to (1)  answer 11 questions posed to me by Sarah; (2) come up with 11 questions to ask my "tagees" and (3) tag 11 blog friends (no tag-backs) to answer my questions.  

My 11 answers:

1.   Do you, or did you before blogging, also write in any other formats?   Kind of.  I have several journals that I have started (some years and years ago).   The idea was to write in them every day, like a diary.   I write in them very infrequently, though.   Shame on me!

2.  Why did you start blogging?  This is kind of embarrassing.   I am always looking for ways to earn extra money.  I have friends who blog and earn money from their blogs.  I started my blog with google adsense on it, but they banned me because my daughter kept clicking on the ads!   hahaha!   Now it's just fun!

3.  Do you ever have to stop reading another blog because the grammar or spelling makes you crazy?  Short answer:  No.  I try not to judge by that criteria :)

4.  Have you ever met the author of a blog you follow?  I know a few of my blogging friends, only because they are relatives or friends.   But I have not met any NEW blogging buddies, although I think it would be a blast.

5.  What is your all-time best ever thing you ate?  That's a hard one.  I honestly can't think of a single favorite thing.  Although, now that I think of it - - there was a Mexican restaurant that I used to eat at with co-workers when I worked at the District Attorney's office in Orange County, CA.   They had the best burrito I have ever eaten!  I can even taste it right now as I am typing.   Oh drat!  I want one!

6.  If you had one week and an unlimited Visa card to go anywhere in the world, but you had to spend that week alone, where would you go and what would you do?   This one is easy - - if I couldn't take my husband with me, I wouldn't go.   Period. 

7.   What is your one pet peeve of all time?  This one's easy, too.   People who are late.   We are all late . . . sometimes.  Some people make a habit of it.   And it's really not that hard to be on time.   I hate that!!

8.  Have you ever visited a place and just "felt" that you belonged there?  Everytime we visit my sister and her family in California, it feels "right."   We all feel it -- it's the favorite place my children like to go.   But it's sad, though, because we don't go there often enough.   And I think it's about time for a trip!

9.  Do you prefer to have a grocery store employee back your bags or do you prefer to do it yourself?  If I did it, I would break the eggs, squish the bread. . .

10.  How large was your high school graduating class?  Have you ever attended a reunion?  I think our high school was the smallest in Anaheim, but we still had several hundred (I think).  And no, no way would I ever go to a reunion.  

11.  How do you feel about salon care?   I like professional hair cuts, never had my hair professionally colored, would never get a massage, and no one will ever touch my  feet but me!!

Here are my tagees -- visit them - - they are all incredibly insightful and awesome and funny!

1.  Nain
2.  Tammy
3.  Mark
4.  Graciewilde
5.  Delores
6.  Larissa
7.  Lisa
8.  Kelly
9.  LuLu
10. Dana
11. Michelle

Now my 11 questions for each of them --

1.  Dogs or cats or neither?
2.  Your favorite holiday and why (besides Christmas)?
3.  What is the greatest life lesson you've learned so far?
4.  Is it easy for you to say "I'm sorry"??
5.  What is the one place in the U.S. that you have always wanted to visit?  Why?
6.  How do you deal with anger?
7.  Comedies or dramas?   Favorite?
8.  When was the last time you laughed out loud? 
9.  Are you who you want to be?  Anything you would change about yourself?
10. Do you have a hero?   Who is it?  Why?
11. Have you ever lied about your age or weight?  In what circumstance?

  1. Loved it! Loved it! The questions you were asked were so much fun and I love your questions as well. (Now I also your newest member of your *large* circle :-))

    Ditto on vacation, if I can't go with my hubby (and my girls,) I won't go either.

    1. Welcome! A vacation to me just isn't a vacation if I can't have my family with me (or at least my husband) :)

    1. Larissa, I should have clarified that you DO NOT have to do it if you don't want to - - especially since you've already been tagged! We all just love you and like play with you!

  4. I'm with you about the pet peeve about running late, especially people late for church. Only ones late for that should be parents with young children and emergencies, but you are right, people make it a habit. I'm also with you about reunions; been to one of mine and one time was enough :)

    enjoy the day!

    1. Wholeheartedly agree! We have people who come in late to church all the time (and some who DON'T have young children!! - haha).

  6. Heavens to Murgatroid! You are so awesome. Unfortunately, I do not believe that mood spectrum disorder is very high on anyone's list to read about, so I would be doing you-and the blogging community-a disservice by responding to your provocative questions. It would send out the message that I was doing a blog like "normal" people. lol Right now, I am trying to keep my head above water, and writing about my illness is very helpful.. Thanks again for the invite. I value our friendship.

    1. Are any of us "normal"? haha. Anyway, I tagged you more because I wanted you to know that you are awesome, not necessarily for your answers to my provocative questions - that's a big word, Mark! I'll add it to my list of Markisms (not Marxisms).

  10. Great job with your questions and answers! My first experience with a massage at a spa was about ten years ago. My husband gave it to me for Mother's Day. Prior to that, I would have never thought I would do such a thing. It was so relaxing, though. I couldn't believe how many knots I had in my back. I felt so much better afterwards. I would definitely do it again.

    1. A massage sounds really really nice, but I think I would be too self-conscious to enjoy it to the fullest :)

  11. Thanks for the tag! You're actually the second person to tag me in the last couple of days. I'm hoping I can get to the questions this weekend. :)

    We share the same pet peeve. Unfortunately, my husband is one of those late people, which makes for some stressful times around here...

  12. Those were some great questions and answers! I felt like I belonged in San Francisco and Victoria BC.

  13. Love your answers.

    2 is hilarious to me

    6 is surprising. And also pretty great. Not that I think you'd *want* to go somewhere without him, but that you definitely would *not* want to. That's amazing. I don't think I know anyone like that. - Well... didn't! :)

  15. I've been tagged twice and so far those blogs that I have read have some really interesting questions I love the ones you got and then gave back out very cool. I agree with you on the grammar fingers typing to fast and you just know it was a good clean sentence otherwise you wouldn't be typing so fast so why proof read right? But I bet SOMEONE out there has a pet peeve on grammar typos huh ??
    Funny true story on the high school reunion thing. We attended my 20 yr. & a girl I had issues with in high school alot approached us as we were leaving, my husband stayed more then I thought he would, so we are leaving she comes up & demands an apology (I warned him this might happen before hand from several old friends) my husband butts in & says "oh take it to Jerry Springer" the girl spins around and yells "I just might!" I stopped dead in my tracks & went up to her & said "you are right I wasn't nice I am sorry". she said thanks and trotted off we laughed our butts off all the way to the car! That could have been my 15 minutes of fame.....No thank you..... Never again would I attempt to attend one of those drama Fest.
