: a game of tag, you’re it :

I was tagged by mild-mannered Lenore Diane — sweet, thoughtful Lenore. What does getting tagged mean? I’m not entirely sure, I’m new to this kind of thing. But from what I can gather, when a person gets tagged, they have to answer the eleven questions posed by the tagger.  Then make up eleven new questions and tag eleven new people. In other words, an online chain letter.

I’m not much for rules, so I’ve decided to tag everyone who stumbles into this post unaware. You’re all it!

Ready? Here are my answers to Lenore Diane’s questions:

1. What is your favorite color, and what do you think it would taste like?
That would be Pantone Orange 021 and it would taste like Froot Loops.
2.  Do you sleep on your left side, right side, back or stomach?
All of the above, thank you. I’m a very active and indiscriminate sleeper.
3.  Do you floss your teeth?
I do, with kite string. Sometimes fishing line.
4.  Do you close the lid before flushing the toilet?
Wait, there’s a lid?
5.  How many times a day do you brush your teeth?
Nine, ten if a dessert is served.
6.  How many times have you brushed your hair today? If you are follicle-challenged, how many times have you rubbed your bald head?
Let’s see, this is Wednesday, so once.
7.   Do your feet smell? (Go ahead and check, we’ll wait.)
How dare you!
8.   Do you have any Ben & Jerry’s ice cream in your freezer? May I have it?
I do not. This is February,
9.  If you notice food stuck between someone’s teeth – do you make an effort to tell him/her? If not, why are you so cruel?
I don’t bother with telling them, no, I just go in after it.
10.  What feature do you most like about me?
Hmm, that’s a toss-up between your sparkling wit and your dimples.
11.  Don’t you think I should be discovered, while I sit doing nothing, and become famous for my writing?
I do and I bet you’d be discovered faster if you sat doing nothing in a bikini on the porch. 

——————————————————————————————————————-

And here are my eleven questions for all of you:

1. What’s the last thing you do before going to bed?

2. When, in your life, were you the happiest?

3. What was your college major?

4. What person, living or dead, do you think had the biggest impact on the world?

5. Have you ever said no to a marriage proposal?

6. What brand of shoes are you wearing right now?

7. Where in the world would you like to work? (Personally I’d like to work at the Louvre in Paris or at Pixar Studios)

8. Do you have a favorite time of day?

9. If you could give yourself a nickname, what would it be?

10. Who is your favorite author?

11. Which one of the Seven Dwarfs is your favorite?

Good luck, everyone.

    You are awesome for playing, Lisa! You and your answers crack me up. I like the fact that you associated Pantone Orange 021 to Fruit Loops. Great taste! The answers are hilarious. Thanks for playing.

    1. Fall asleep on the couch.
    2. It’s a tie between my wedding day, and any visit to the dentist’s office that involved nitrous oxide.
    3. Art. It’s why I was a legal assistant for 15 years and now a farmer. I mean, really, art? What was I thinking?
    4. Hitler. Sounds awful, but you didn’t say whether the impact was good or bad.
    5. Yes, in the 1st grade. Jeff’s downward spiral afterwards is still a thing of legend in Anderson, Indiana.
    6. Athletic socks from Academy.
    7. Nowhere. I’d like to retire.
    8. Happy hour.
    9. Vegetable Queen.
    10. Tom Robbins. Who else besides Mother Goose can use characters like Can o’ Beans, Dirty Sock, Spoon, Painted Stick and Conch Shell effectively?
    11. Whichever one played the creepy little person in the dream sequences of Twin Peaks. Probably it was Sleepy. Or Doc, since he’d be more likely to get his hands on whatever hallucinogen David Lynch was taking at the time.

    I like your answer to how often do you brush your hair because I brush my hair about as often as my mother went to the “beauty salon” when I was a little girl. I’m not going to be “it” because I am overwhelmed with stuff to do today, but I wanted to check in on your blog, well just to check (I’m a worrier, you know).

      Markus Zusak? Really? Is it The Book Thief, by any chance? I love that book, absolutely love it. That’s the only one of his I’ve read, I don’t know why. I almost bought The Messenger a couple of years ago, but decided on another book, instead. And I like Ian McEwan, as well. Particularly Atonement. Have you ever read any of Jo Nesbo’s mysteries?

      Sorry, I’ll stop now. Great answers, suzymarie. Markus Zusak blew my little mind, in case you couldn’t tell. So did Emeryville, California a little, it’s so specific. You’re an interesting girl, thanks for taking the time to play.

        Yes really! And it is The Book Thief, what a beautiful book! I’m so glad you agree :) Apparently The Messenger is absolutely fantastic, so I must buy it once my book challenge is finished. Atonement is my favourite Ian McEwan, although I need to read it again as I was a little young when I read it first time I think. No Jo Nesbo’s in my life, are they good? I enjoy mysteries! Have you got a good one to suggest?

        Haha Emeryville is the place where Pixar is based. My boyfriend would love to work there and his second name is similar to Emeryville haha so would be quite idyllic! I’m glad you enjoyed my answers, I particularly like your answer to Question 2 on your set of questions, it made me laugh :)

          If you like Scandinavian mysteries, you should check out Jo Nesbo. He’s written a series of books that begin with The Redbreast, but my favorite so far is The Redeemer. I think this guy is a genius. If you ever want a good book, you should take a look at him.
