Jenn called me out to answer these can read her answers here (and where she got the questions)...and it was her birthday this week, so I shall oblige.  Happy birthday week, Jenn!

two. the relationship between you and the person you last texted? I count "Viber" as my mom and I texting.

nine. favorite flavor of sweet? caramel
forty. what instruments do you play? Is my ipod an instrument?

one. favorite piece of jewelry? Unfair question; my husband is a jeweller and has generously made several lovely pieces for me that all have a special meaning; but...because I don't want to give a lame answer and say "all of them", I'll pick my Australian sapphire & diamond ring.

eight. favorite candy? Whatchamacallit
nine. favorite soda? Cherry Coke
fifty. who should answer these questions next?  You should.  Yes, you. 

Learn anything new about me?


  1. OZ was such a great show, I had forgotten about it until your post. Tyson and I watched every episode.

    I prefer sunrise to sunset, I think it's the lack of people willing to get up and enjoy it with me. I love the solitude.

  2. oh i love learning more about you my hot pink haired friend! mmm cherry coke. that safe story - still unreal to me. i saw that on snapchat. people are just SO rude. especially in the retail industry. and food who are we kidding. :)

    xoxo cheshire kat

  3. Whatchamacallits are so yummy... but not nearly as yummy as Jared Leto. SO HOT.

  4. When I read your answer for "Turn Off" & you replied with "rudeness", just made me think of the watch lady. Did she ever come back? Ha!

    I love learning more & more about you, girlie. :)

  5. OK... I thought you were like in your early 30's... 42 makes more sense since you're a fan of Grease 2 :) haha... that's in my top 5 favorite movies. Cool Rider FOREVER baby! :)

  6. Love Actually is always the one I say when I can only name one, but I definitely have 5. Never heard of Rottnest Island (which I read Rottenest at first), but it's beautiful! I'd definitely want to go there! Have a great weekend :)

  7. what! can't believe that customer was so rude. gah. what a *insert mean word here*.
    yes to robert downey jr and a bath when sad... a bath with RDJ would not be bad. haha jk.

  8. I truly said "duh" out loud when I read your favorite band response. LOL! Amen to JBJ 4eva! I love Love Actually, too! Fun post.

  9. hot damn. you did it. i am impressed, lady. thanks. :]

  10. The freckles pick up line is pretty good, I've not heard that one before. :)

  11. I seriously don't know how you were able to pick just one favorite song to put on the list! Especially since you love music so much! I saw your snaps about that crazy customer and I can't believe that she was that rude to you! It's your policy to not open the safe without people there!

  12. So fun! Rottnest Island looks gorgeous! Thirty Seconds to Mars version of "Stay" is amazing! I'd never heard it before. And I forgot all about "Scars." That's a good one. I swoon over RDJ constantly.

  13. I saw this on Jenn's blog. I probably should do it too. One of these days...


I love comments, and I enjoy our interactions. I respond via email, but if you're a "no reply blogger", I can't. Don't think I'm ignoring you!
