Oh no - I'm It!

I've been tagged by two lovely ladies: Janet Summer Johnson and Shannon O'Donnell. If you haven't met them yet, you've really got to visit - they're terrific! :)

Okay, here we go...

Are you hot?

Nope. Not a chance. I have a thyroid disorder & I'm always cold. :)
Upload a picture or wall paper you are using at the moment.

 Nope - he's not mine, he's the son of a family member. And he's the cutest cutie-patootie going! :)

When was the last time you ate chicken meat?
Last night. Delicious! Marinated & bbq-ed. With new potatoes, mushrooms & zucchini - awesome!

The Song(s) you listened to recently?
Beautiful by the Barenaked Ladies
California Dreamin' by Queen Latifah
Take it Easy by The Eagles
LOVE my iTunes - it's always on shuffle and you never really know what's coming up next!

What were you thinking as you were doing this?
Help! I'm terrible at these things!

Do you have nicknames?
Not really. Finnegan for some strange reason when I was a kid, but that's it.

Who's listed as number one?
Riley. I met Riley over at Agent Query Connect. She's an amazing teen writer who's got a great eye for detail and a very generous heart!

Say something about number 5.
Julie is one of the sweethearts of the bloggy-verse. She always makes me think and her approach to life is full of optimism.

How did you get to know number 3?
It's been such a long time, I'm not really sure. Lisa is always so much fun on Twitter! Love Lisa's twisty takes on all things paranormal over at her blog!

How about number 4?
Laura's zebra always makes me smile! I think I met Laura through her Monday quote posts - love them!

Leave a message for number 6.
Susan - I love your "about me" description on your blog. I used to think I was the only one with eclectic ideas all over the spectrum. So glad to know I'm not alone!! :)

Leave a lovey-dovey message for number 2.
Laura - you're a total sweetie! I love the way you break down plots - your analysis style totally rocks!

Do number 7 and number 8 have any similarities?
Aside from being 2 of the sweetest people in the bloggy-verse? They both have open, generous hearts and are kind and wondeful ladies!

(Please feel no pressure to complete the tag - it's all about fun, not to cause stress!)

Phew! I made it. I have the HARDEST time with these things. Hope you enjoy meeting 10 of the nicest people in the bloggy-verse (don't forget Janet & Shannon up top!).

So, what's on your computer's background right now??


  1. Awwww! See? I didn't get the whole message!!! Oh well. Thanks for tagging me, and for the sweet words. :D I want to say I heard about you on Tahereh's blog ages ago?? But then again I could be LOOPY. That wouldn't surprise me in the least.

  2. Awww ... thanks Jemi! You're pretty fabulous yourself!

  3. Lisa - You're very welcome!! :)

    I think you might be right - it might have been on Tahereh's site! It's been a while tho!

  4. Beth - you're very welcome!! It's a pleasure to be able to tag you & your generous heart! :)

  5. I love itunes too. I love to set it to random shuffle when I'm cleaning. :)

    I hope you're done with school, if not already, then SOON.

    Happy weekend, love.

  6. Lola - I'm always with my iTunes! :)

    We still have another week and a half before we're done. It wouldn't be bad if it wasn't so hot! My classroom feels like an oven some days!

  7. You must be skinny - skinny women are always cold, even in summer!

  8. Alex - I wish!!! The thyroid definitely doesn't help in that department :)

  9. I can confirm that Julie is just as sweet in person, and Lisa is completely paranormal (in a good way). Thanks for some new-to-me bloggers to check out. Your chicken meat dinner sounds delish!

  10. Leslie - it really was wonderful!! :)

  14. Thanks so much for my tag. Fascinating questions you had to tackle. I have a thyroid problem too. I'm always feeling the cold and I blame it for my dry skin and brittle hair too.
