November 23, 2014 Fun Questions 13

Fun Questions Logo
I was tagged by Felicia @ The Geeky Blogger’s Book Blog (check out her answers) to answer these twenty questions about myself. Sounded fun, so here we go πŸ™‚

  1. How Tall Are You? I’m 5’11.5″ Yes, I’m holding on to that half inch. I don’t want to be 6′.
  2. Do You Have A Hidden Talent? If so, what? Umm… nope. I mean I can write, but is that really a “hidden” talent?
  3. What is your biggest blog related pet peeve?Hmmm. I’m really easy going. But I am bothered by those comments where someone clearly didn’t read the post and then leave me a link to their post. You know “great post. Here’s mine” But now I feel mean. It’s not that big a deal, I’ll live.
  4. What is your biggest non-blog related pet-peeve?Again, I’m easy going. Not much bugs me. But seriously, there is a difference between there, their, and they’re.
  5. What’s Your Favorite Song? Don’t pass out or anything, but I don’t really like music much. I prefer silence. But I will never not enjoy this song – Randy Crawford’s version of Who’s Crying Now?. The song is beautiful. The instrumental is gorgeous. And it reminds me of the time I took my dad’s car while he was on vacation and jammed out with his Bose speakers πŸ˜‰ (Thank goodness he doesn’t read my blog LOL) And now I’m jamming to it! My favorite part is at about 2:51.
  6. What’s your favorite Etsy shop? I don’t shop etsy. I save my money for books LOL
  7. What’s your favorite way to spend your time when you’re alone? I love my alone time. It’s spent reading, blogging, or jogging (while listening to Audiobook) with Buffy (I’m never truly alone. She’s always with me).
  8. What’s Your Favorite Junk Food? ALL OF IT! It really depends on my mood, because sometimes ice cream sounds great and other times I don’t want it. Sometimes cake sounds great and sometimes yuck. And sometimes it’s chicken wings. What can I say? I like food. Thank god there’s no question on here about my weight :/
  9. Do you have pets? Yep. Buffy (as mentioned in #7) is my constant companion. She’s part Chihuahua, part terrier. What? A picture you say?

  10. What are your favorite fiction and non-fiction books? I’m a grad student trying desperately to escape. So I hate non-fiction right now. Sorry πŸ™ But fiction – easy – Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
  11. What’s your favorite beauty product?I keep it simple. But I’m all about Aveeno. I have sensitive skin and their products are the only thing that don’t make me break out badly. I use Aveeno’s tinted moisturizer, some urban decay tinted primer, liquid eyeliner, mascara, and bam! That’s my routine.
  12. When were you last embarrassed?IDK, I don’t embarrass easily. I mean I’m super clumsy and have been my whole life. So you get used to it!
  13. If you could drink one beverage for the rest of your life, what would it be? I am not a lush. But Olive Garden’s Italian Margaritas πŸ™‚
  14. What’s Your Favorite Movie? Yeah, not a big movie watcher either. But A&E’s Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehl. See a favorites theme?
  15. What were you in high school? Prom Queen, Nerd, Cheerleader, Jock, Valedictorian, Band Geek, Loner, Artist, Etc.? What about tag along? I was friends with people in each category but didn’t belong to any of them. I’m a social loner, basically.
  16. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?My own private island. Something like Isle Esme – an hour boat ride to civilization but otherwise just me, my family, and my books (internet of course, satellite!).
  17. PC or MAC? PC! So PC that I won’t even get an iPhone, iPod, iPad, etc.
  18. Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boyfriend/girlfriend? I don’t know if it’s romantic, but he let my mom move in with us. And did LOTS of work to make it work – cat doors, installing washer dryer connections, assembling beds. After almost 10 years, that’s romance! So yeah, he’s a keeper πŸ™‚
  19. Favorite Celeb?George Clooney. No, I don’t care that he’s too old for me!

    I like this look the best πŸ™‚

  20. Which blogger do you secretly want to be friends with? Hmm, well there are some bloggers I’d like to get to know better, but I don’t think it’s a secret or anything. I comment on their blogs and tweet them and stuff. And slowly, we are getting know each other better. I’m not really shy, especially not in the blogosphere.

There you are! 20 things you probably didn’t care to know about me πŸ˜‰ Who am I tagging? Let’s see what Michelle @ Because Reading and Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh My! Have to say!

    LOL We have so much in common, Berls… except for the height. I’m going to feel like an elf when i met you next May. πŸ™‚ I’m only 5′ 1″ – if i stretch. This was a fun post. Thanks for sharing a few things we might not have known.

    Just like you those comments from people who clearly didn’t take time to read the post and then comment can rub me wrong, I prefer if they just lurk instead.

    I could hug you for that comment about music, I am the same and people usually look at me weird when I admit that. It’s not like I hate music, but I don’t really care in general. My boyfriend usually puts some music on and I a okay with it, but if I am home alone I never listen to music.

    I am not really a movie person either, although I watched soem movies and tv series with my boyfriend recently that I enjoyed.

    Etsy has some great bookish gifts though, I once got a bracelet with a quote on it. Okay on further thougth just stay away as everything looks so awesome and is pricey!

    I am a PC person as well, I never really got everyone’s obsession with mac. I do own a secondhand old ipad. I mostly use it to play games when I a having breakfast.

    I also food! I love pizza and ice cream! And chocolate! And warm apples! And cake! I love cake! My sister bought donuts home today, yum!

    First, I love your dog(so cute),and my first dog when I was little was named Buffy too. Secondly, I have to admit I had to look Etsy up..had no idea what that was, lol. And lastly, I don’t do non-fiction either. I like to escape too.I enjoyed finding out more about you πŸ™‚

  4. C.M. Boers

    Love this! I love to see some personality in a blog! I totally agree with you on the non-fiction…I get bored easily. Though I think my 7 year old is going to disagree with me on that! haha!

      Yay! Another Anti- I device person! I swear, sometimes I feel all alone on that one. Haha, I have model height, but not the model body πŸ˜‰ Any guesses about my favorite TV show? LOL

    • Berls

      You know it!?!? Yay! Hardly anyone knows that song! I don’t have the CD, but I listen to it a lot on YouTube.

    • Berls

      Haha my BF is only 5’4″ so I know about how tall you are. Yeah, he’s short.

      OMG someone else who’s not all about music! Everyone acts like I’m crazy when I tell them I don’t like music that much.

      I love putting Buffy in clothes. She doesn’t love me for it, but she deals. I only do it for holidays and cold weather though.
