Questions, Questions, Questions...

Once upon a Family tagged me with some questions and then I must ask some more questions, passing those on to other bloggers...

1. What is the community you live in known for?
Home of the highest taxes in the country! And I wish I were joking about that.

2. What was your favorite t.v. show when you were a kid?
I had many favorites. I remember watching Carol and Paula on The Magic Garden after school, the Disney Afternoon line up, especially The Gummi Bears, Tail Spin, and Darkwing Duck...In general, I was very much into cartoons.

3. Do you have any pets?
Five cats--Dustbunny, Merlin, Rosie, Romeo and Hobgoblin. We also have five stick bugs right now. I happen to love the stick bugs. Low maintenance, interesting to watch, quiet. What more could you ask for in a pet?

4. How often do you vacuum?
I sweep almost daily. A few times a month I take out the old monster and fight with it. It tries to suck up any unsuspecting string, even if it is attached to a shoe, which causes the roller to stick and melts the rubber belt. I've been in need of a new vacuum for a couple of years now, but I haven't found one that I like that I can afford.

5. What would you want to do if you weren't living the life you are now?
I love my life! Don't get me wrong, I have my bad days, but I try to be thankful for each day I have with my kids and husband. If I had more free time and less responsibility, I would probably want to travel. I like exploring new places.

6. Would you rather go to a crowded supermarket on a Friday afternoon or be canning on a hot day?
Are those my only choices?! I guess I would have to do the crowded supermarket, since I've never canned and would probably end up exploding something!

7. What is the best thing about your spouse?
He's very supportive. He backs up my crazy schemes, even if he isn't completely sure about them. He trusts my judgment.

8. If you could go to lunch with anyone in the world who would it be?
Who wouldn't I want to go to lunch with? I would love to meet some of my blogging friends for lunch, or lunch with some of my favorite authors, like Elizabeth Peters, JK Rowling, or Rick Riordan. But above all, I think I would love to sit down to lunch with my sister and her family. Living on the opposite coast from her has been hard. I miss her.

So now it's my turn. I don't do well with tagging, so I will make this a request. If you choose to answer my questions, please tell me you did it in the comments and I'll go check your answers!

1. Can you describe yourself in six words?

2. What is your favorite place to go with the kids?

3. What is a hobby or interest you have?

4. What kinds of books do you like to read?

5. Line up your M&M's/Skittles/other treat by color, or eat them straight out of the bag?

6. You win free plane tickets to anywhere in the world. Where do you go?

7. What is the best thing about your spouse?

8. When did you last laugh until you cried?

I'll play along...but it might take a few days. But I'll play along.

I can answer #8...Last time was watching "Big Bang Theory" (I'm on season 1, Disc 1 - so very early in the series.)

And reading "Wicked Appetite" by Evanovich. (Not at the same time....)

It's me again... The last Word verification was "Bentessy"

I liked it so much, I'm going to stick it in a story. Then I got to thinking -- what other word combinations might I run across? Maybe I should start a list.

List started. Thought I'd share.

1. Six words only? Are you crazy?
2. Everywhere!! I love being with my kids except for W*lm*rt as they start complaining about the place as soon as we cross the threshold.
3. New hobby since giving up bellydancing is KNITTING!! =)
4. Historical romance! (Series are best!!)
5. Depends on the day
6. Singapore!! With a layover in New York!!
7. He's MINE!!!
8. This morning when my hearing wasn't working well so everything my family said came across ridiculous.

I love a house filled with laughter!

LOL, Vicki! Have you read the Amelia Peabody series yet? I'm sure you would love it!
Comfy: I can give you more for your list if you need them. I've gotten some wonderful ones!
Christine: Great answers!

I am ROFL at your comment about exploding something if you tried canning. I am terrified (terrified!!!) of canning because I fear I would blow up the house.

I am going to play along and hope to get my answers up today on my blog. :)
