I’ve Been Tagged

Before I start, I want to speak my condolences to those in Boston, and my prayers are with you.

As I was digging into Ute‘s blog today I found out that I’ve been tagged.  Thanks Ute!  What fun!  The idea is to answer eleven questions set by him and then ask more questions to eleven others.

Here are her questions, followed by my questions and the folks I’ve nominated to answer them, and write their own questions and pass them on.

  1. Are you open to try new foods from different countries?  Yes, definitely!  What are you offering???  
  2. Do you see your glass half full or half empty?  It depend on what’s in it!  If it’s air, I’d have to say 100% full.
  3. Which famous person would you like to meet? Ute
  4. Have you ever met a famous person, who was it? I meet famous people every day.  It just depend on who you consider famous!  My most famous friend is Elane, a Holocaust survivor.  She worked in the entertainment industry, and at her seder she has had movie stars.  Unfortunately I didn’t know them before, and one of them was pretty rude, but we did have dinner together.  Her best friend there is married to an animation artist, Ed Marsh, that worked on the Titanic and many other movies.  http://amzn.to/117USHr.  There are others, but he is an absolute sweetie pie.
  5. Internet shopping to real highstreet, which do you prefer? It depends on the item.  For books, I actually prefer online because I can just download a book onto my Kindle or computer.  For clothes, I much prefer to try them on.
  6. What is your favourite board game? I prefer card games.  I like something that doesn’t take too much thought, for a couple of reasons.  First I like to talk to people as I play, secondly, I don’t want to embarrass myself.
  7. How would you describe yourself in 3 words? friendly, funny,  and flabby
  8. What do you do on a daily basis which makes you happy? eat
  9. What is your favourite cartoon character? Since I didn’t have my own children, I haven’t watched many cartoon except animated films.  Do they count.  I loved the Incredibles, Chicken Little, and the hair on the little princess – forgot her name.  As a child, my favorite was Popeye, and I do like slimy canned spinach to this day.  
  10. Do you have a partypiece you can show off at parties? hmmm  I’m sure I do, not sure exactly what that might be – a party bowl or something?
  11. At a dress up party what would you go as – mm good question, Ute.  I’ve been as a flapper and a woman from the 1860s.  I prefer something that makes me look cute and fun, and doesn’t make me look like I’m an old lady trying to act too young.  

My questions:

  1. What book are you reading right now?
  2. What mini-vacation (0-100 miles from your home) have you particularly enjoyed within the last year?
  3. What is your favorite form of entertainment?
  4. Of what accomplishments are you the most proud?
  5. Who has been most influential in your life in the past year?
  6. If you were raising money for a favorite charity, where would you direct our checks?
  7. If you weren’t doing the work or career you are in, what would you like to be doing?
  8. If you could have named yourself, what would your name be and why?
  9. What would you most like to tell your children, or important young person in your life but haven’t?
  10. How do you change your mood when you are grumpy?
  11. What particular skill could you teach us on your blog?

Here are the lucky people I’m tagging.

        1. mmmm It’ll make you strong, Carol! Oh yeah, I forgot, you climb mountains and teach kids. You ARE strong already. You don’t need Popeye! 🙂 You should have SEEN MY arms in those days – sticks! Not so much anymore! 🙂


    1. After all these years, ILeanne, ‘ve gotten to know myself pretty well. I totally forgot all about sitting next to Richard Dreyfuss in a meeting. That was a FUNNY story, but I don’t want to get myself sued for telling it. hahaha So nice to chat with you last night (for me – afternoon for you). 🙂


  1. #11 was good! 😀

    I really like the 1910 styles. There was an elegant simplicity to them. The vintage 1860 dresses are nice as well, but I doubt I could wear them without breaking my neck. 😉


  2. Hahaha! Very fun answers to the questions, Marsha. Our son loves spinach. I went with him the last time he was to the grocery store. He put several cans of generic spinach in his cart. When he wasn’t looking, I slipped a can of Popeye spinach in. I have no idea what made me do that, but I like Popeye, too, and I want my son to be strong to the finish!

    Thank you for the tag! I’ll answer it soon. 🙂
