25 Random Questions
I was send some ‘random’ questions and I thought this might be a good way for you to get to know me, maybe give you some mild insight into the person who’s blog you are checking out.
1. What are your favorite pizza toppings?
Canadian Bacon, Pepperoni, Black Olives, Green Bell Peppers, torn Basil
2. Name one thing you worry about running out of ~
Caffeen – Dr Pepper & Cherry Dr Pepper
3. What is the wallpaper on your cell phone of?
“Keep CALM and LOVE Mommy” and “Dear God, I’ve tried my best, if today I lose my hope Please tell me that Your plan are bigger than my dreams.”
4. How many pairs of jeans do you own?
5. Have you ever ridden in an ambulance?
Not that I can remember.
6. What was your favorite movie you saw in the theatre?
“Phantom of the Opera” or “Memoirs of a Geisha” and “Dark Knight” the one with Heath Ledger, my husband and I actually waited in line for it and he thought it was worth it too (it was also one of the last times we were able to go out before morning sickness kicked my butt, lol) also “Les Miserables”.
7. Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
8. Who is your favorite author?
Too many. Take a peek at my book reviews here and on my page on goodreads, you will see some repeats.
9. Do you have any scars?
Yep; if stretch marks count then the number goes up.
10. Would you rather watch a movie at home or at the theater?
Home cuddling with my hubby or boys, a pizza and a few bottles of Dr Pepper.
11. If you could only see black and white except for one color, what color would you choose to see?
Red… I love the passion and contrast that Red makes when you see it against Black & White. Remember in ‘Schindler’s List’ the little girl in the red jacket? That placement of red brought something so horrendous to a new level.
12. If you could hire someone to do one thing for you all the time, what would it be?
Clean house… I am not the best housekeeper (my husband will attest to that); but I manage. Then I could spend more time on writing and catching up on my TBR stacks, lol.
13. Do you collect anything? If so, what and how long have you been collecting?
If you ask my hubby, he will say ‘books’, lol. I KNOW I collect hugs and kisses from my boys and hubby, I have had so many I know I am blessed.
14. Name a few of your guilty pleasures.
Hot baths, reading late into the night, writing, doing my nails (they are real and grow quickly) & cuddling with my hubby after he’s been gone all week.
15. Scary movies or happy endings?
16. Do you watch reality tv?
Deadliest Catch, Sister Wives, Shark Wranglers, Shark Week, Naked and Afraid, and Finding Bigfoot are about the extent of any ‘reality tv’ I might watch.
17. Would you ever go skydiving (or have you been)?
Maybe, I like planes; it’s something I have always said I wanted to do, maybe when I turn 40 or 50.
18. Have you ever seen a ghost?
Spirit? Yes. Ghost? No. Demon? Yep.
19. Are you superstitious?
I can be at times.
20. Do you have any hobbies?
Reading (of course), canning (see my post from Monday, August 13th, 2012 for a few examples), doing cross-stitch & plastic canvas, tormenting my children & husband; and this past summer, bugging our real estate agent SALE BABY SALE!!!
21. Do you like sports?
Actually I do, NFL (Green Bay & Tampa Bay), I watch UFC & MMA with my husband.
Domestic Goddess & Mommy.
23. Pet Peeves?
Lol; I have a few. The towels have to be folded ‘my way’, don’t move where I have things in my kitchen or pantry, I don’t like people who curse in front of children on a regular basis; I have others, that’s just a few.
24. Political Affiliation?
I’m a Common Sense Conservative. I know that’s not what most people want to hear, but it’s who I am, take it or leave it. I leave politics off my page over 95% of the time, the few times it will/does come up, that will shine through. Also, you may see some comments about what I could not give a novel a higher rating since it conflicts with my personal views.
25. Has any book or movie made a lasting impact on you?
Definitely. The Bible has given me so much as far as guidance and a base for my life. Other books that have changed my life, “Memnoch the Devil” opened my mind to a few ‘who knows’; “Going Rogue” gave me insight into Sarah Palin and the struggles she faces as a mom when she found out her baby, Trig, was going to be born with Downs, it touched my heart and made me appreciate her more than I did.
As far as movies go ~ “What Dreams May Come” made me cry and the imagery was beautiful, that has to be the movie that had one of the largest impacts on me.
