25 ?s

Take a look at a fellow book lover's answers (from Bevchen Confuzzledom*)
*I know that isn't her "real" name, but how cool would it be if it was?

1. What is your middle name?: Elizabeth
2. What was favourite subject at school?: I loved Spanish, but sadly, I couldn't have a proper conversation with a Spanish speaker because I never immersed myself.
3. What is your favourite drink(s)?: cherry coke, hot tea, a good margarita, Crown Royal & 7, Smithwick's or Shiner Bock beer, sparkling water
4. What is your favourite song at the moment?:  I can never choose just one.  Let's see.  One of my all-time favorite artists (Butch Walker) has a new album coming soon called "Stay Gold"...that song is already on Spotify.

5. What is your favourite food?: All things TexMex
6. What is the last thing you bought?: I downloaded two books from two different bloggers.
7. Favourite book of all time?: Impossible.  The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett is the book that I've read the most times.
8. Favourite colour?: Hot pink
9. Do you have any pets?: Look!  A question that allows me to show off my fur babies! (L to R - Sally & Dolly aka The Destructive Duo, our mutt sisters; and our rescue kitties Astro, Ivy, & Ricky)
10. Favourite perfume?: Dior Addict Shine (I think that's what it's called)
11. Favourite holiday?: It used to be Halloween, but I can't say I have a favorite holiday anymore...anything that involves food and rest.
12. Are you married?: Yes
13. Have you ever been out of the country, if so how many times?: I'm guessing this question is assuming I live in the same country that I was born, which I don't, so, yes, I've been "out of the country"; times? I don't know, but I've been to 13 different countries, some of them more than once.
14. Do you speak any other language?: see question #2
15. How many siblings do you have?: One full brother; plus step-siblings and in-laws
16. What is your favourite shop?:  Every time I'm back in Texas, DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse) is a must.
17. Favourite restaurant?: In Sydney, Chophouse ... a fantastic steak house ... and by answering these questions, I just learned that 17 hours ago, a news report says they are in "receivership", meaning they are for sale or could go bankrupt.  That sucks.
18. When was the last time you cried?: 2 days ago
19. Favourite blog?: I have probably 10-12 that I read almost everything that is published.
20. Favourite movie:  Love Actually, Grease 2, Almost Famous, Urban Cowboy, The Outsiders
21. Favourite TV shows?: of all time - Oz (the HBO prison show); there is not one television series that I faithfully watch right now
22. PC or Mac?: PC
23. What phone do you have?: IPhone
24. How tall are you?: 5' 6"
25. Can you cook? I can follow easy recipes.

Learn anything new about me? 


  1. I love LOVE ACTUALLY, too! One of my all-time top 10 movies, hands down. You found a Tex-Mex place there in Sydney, didn't you? How is it working out? Have a good one, girl!

  2. So I would have guessed you shorter than 5'6", I don't have a good reason why. Maybe you look shorter on snapchat?! :)

  3. Co-sign me on the movies, except The Outsiders (I enjoy it but not a favorite) and Love Actually (haven't seen it, have no desire to).

  4. I love these get to know you questions. They make for a fun, easy post :) And you get to show off your fur babies! Halloween is definitely my favorite non-religious holiday. (Technically I guess its roots have to do with religion... but you know what I mean.)

  5. What a fun post. I loved the show OZ, it was soo good!!

  6. I've actually never seen Oz, but heard its good. I saw Christopher Meloni in Wet Hot American Summer and it reminded me how awesome he is.

  7. You've mentioned Grease 2 before and I confess... I've never seen it. Or Oz for that matter, but I heard Christopher Meloni got nekkid a lot in it haha. Love Actually is in my top 5 for sure. Why don't you like Halloween anymore? And there are never too many fur baby pics- so cute!

  8. Puppiess!! Also kitties, but puppiesssss!!

    I wish Bevchen Confuzzledom was my real name :-)

  9. I'm with you and can follow easy recipes! If I see a recipe that has too many steps or steps that I don't know what they're talking about I put it away. And I wish that I had been immersed in a language as well! I can speak basic words in Spanish, but I don't think that I'll ever fully learn it. Yes to everything Tex Mex!

  10. Yes to all the things texmex! Also my fave!
    Puppies and kitties, oh so cute. Dolly's head looks velvety soft.

    I learned that you're 5'6. :)

  11. Fur babies! They look so pretty and handsome!! I did very well in my Spanish class too but never really spoke with a native speaker, so I was terrible with conversational Spanish and only remember a handful of words now, like gato. :) Love Actually is such a silly, feel-good movie. A friend dragged me to see it and I'm so glad she did!

  12. ah i love learning more! and yay for fur babies :) and who doesn't love texmex. but must be good texmex :) yay for all the hot pink!

    xoxo cheshire kat

  13. i want to know your 10-12 bloggers haha. that is so sad about chophouse :( and i am so with you on anything that involves food and rest, basically if my life could be that, i'm good haha


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!
