I'm It, Part Two

I was also tagged by Sarah at  My Life in Contradictions.  She had some good questions too and I couldn't resist!  After all, this blog is all about me and answering questions about me fits the bill.

1. Do you or did you before blogging, also write in any other formats? I have so many journals filled with embarrassing, angsty crap, I shudder to read it.  But I can't toss them out, those words I wrote might hold a nugget of good buried in all that other junk.  Blogging is better.  It makes me refine what I write, gives me an outlet but at the same time I am aware that people read what I write, so I try to write good things.  Not so much of the angsty stuff now days!
2. Why did you start blogging? I wrote about that here but the simple story is I wanted to write funny bits of life that my husband could read when he was deployed.  I know for a fact he fell off his chair laughing once, so I count that as a huge success!
3. Do you ever stop reading another blog because the grammar or spelling makes you crazy? No.  I've got a soft spot for poor spellers, being as I am a poor speller.  Case in point, I naturally did not spell grammar right!  I have stopped reading another blog because I was tired of ridiculous pity party rants.  It seemed like every comment I left turned into a disagreement with her.  Since I don't know her at all, and it is her blog to blog about whatever her heart desires, I felt it was rude of me to be all up in her business.   I graciously quit her and have been happier for it.  I'm sure she feels the same!
4. Have you ever met the author of a blog you follow? Nope.  Here's a terrible secret, my blogging friends, I'd probably throw up with nerves.  Who wants to met that?
5. What is your all time best thing you ever ate? My Grandma's little wild mountain blackberry pie.  Let's just say, it is an honest to God slice of heaven.
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? I'm with Judy on this one.  Not take the hubster?  Not going to happen.
7. What is your one pet peeve of all time? I hate to be ignored when I'm talking to someone.  You'd think it was just little kids, but at work I can call back to a desk I know a person is at and not get answered.  If I'm taking the time to talk, it's nice to be given the courtesy of a listen!
8. Have you ever visited a place and felt that you belonged there? The beach.  My soul is satisfied with the smell of the sea and the feel of the sand.
9. Do you prefer to have a grocery store employee pack your bags or do you prefer to do it yourself? I have gotten so used to the commissary baggers packing my bags, I would not even now how to do it myself.  That's kind of embarrassing!
10. How big was your graduation class and have you ever attended a reunion? I don't know.....160?  I can't remember how big our class was!  We did go to our 10th reunion, and now we have rsvp'd for our 20th.  Both my husband and I hated high school, but love the idea of showing up at the reunions, still together, still in love, which I'm sure makes us slightly less good people!
11. How do you feel about salon care: hair coloring/styling/manicure/pedicure/massage/facials? Hate it.  Hate it all!  I can barely stand to get my hair cut.  I die a ticklish death with pedicures.  I'm a bare minimum fuss kind of girl and that is a good thing.

  1. These are great questions!

    I also have a pile of journals filled with embarrassing writing, and like you, I prefer blogging.

    I love the question about the place where you feel you belong. For me, it would be New York City. Every time I visit, I feel like I'm meant to stay. :)

    Really enjoyed this. Have a great day!

    1. My second choice on where I clicked is northern New Jersey. I know. New Jersey. But we were stationed there and we just fell in love with it. Our son loves that he was born there, almost like it's a foreign country!

  4. In answer to your question in #4: me. Cause duh, you sound so cool. And I'm with you on the Pepsi thing, so we could sit with our tall chilled glasses of Pepsi and our buttered toast. And that, to mis-quote one of my favorite bloggers, would rock.

  5. I loved all of these, but especially #6 and #8. I've gushed often about my love affair with the ocean, so that's no surprise. The not wanting to go anywhere without the hubster cracked me up--a few years ago, my sister thought she would do something nice for me and got me a hotel room for my birthday so I could have a night all to myself. The first thing I did after she left me there was call Hubby and have him come there, too. There's probably a mental health diagnosis in there somewhere... ;)

    1. Forgot to say I'm totally with ya on #4, too. I'm always amazed that other people can meet with online friends without throwing up.

    2. My sister went away for the weekend, without her kids or husband and I was impressed with her. I couldn't do it!

  6. I liked these questions. Different than the typical ones that have been floating around. The blogging ones are good and insightful. I got tagged by someone, but didn't play, b/c I'd just gotten two "awards" and had to write stuff about myself there, so I was a bit uncomfortable with all the self-focus. Maybe it's just me? :-)

    1. Nah, it was weird. I agonized over it before I decided since I couldn't think of anything to write about, I might as well use the questions kindly given to me!

  7. Ah, I'd meet you....at the ocean so we could wash the sick away ;-) I love the ocean too!

    I would totally go away with out the other half though. I would tour as many cities as I could around the world. He is a country boy at heart and visiting cities with him is simply excruciating (hope that is spelt right lol) at times!!

    More great answers, I'm loving it.
