Meme from Ask Me Anything

My sister urged me to do this one, too, so here goes. Let me know if any of you do the same on your blog, so I can see your answers!

1. My uncle once:
Tried to pressure my daughter to give him a hug. She wasn't impressed (you go, girl!).

2. Never in my life:
Everest. I have no death wish, nor do I wish to lose my fingers, toes, or anything else. And I hate intense cold, especially when accompanied by intense wind and tons and tons of exercise.

3. When I was seventeen:
I was a complete dork. Oh, darn, I still am!!!!

4. High School was:
Lonely. I was too smart for my own good, and had the social skills of a psychopathic killer. Only I wasn't one on the inside (it only seemed like I would be on the outside). 

5. I will never forget:
The moment I held my daughter in my arms. Life changing.

6. I once met:
Ray Bradbury. Didn't give a lick what people thought of him, so he was very open about everything. Loved having lunch with him. (Note, if you do dine with him, he hates broccoli and cauliflower.)

7. There's this girl I know who:
Knits, and knits and knits. She calls herself Knitting Mama, and I know that knitting is her way of keeping her sanity as a SAHM (mine is writing).

8. Once, at a bar:
My husband called me pretending he was in jail. When I found out he was at a bar with his buddies I hung up on him. He never did that again.

9. By noon, I'm usually:
Starving. And I eat breakfast, too. Weird.

10. Last night:
I looked at the new ihome, finished laundry, and discussed a property my hubby and I are thinking of buying.

11. If only I had:
Gone to my big sister's wedding! My one regret in the world!

12. Next time I go to gym/church:
I'll be doing Zumba Thursday. LOVE IT!

13. Susan Boyle:
What about her? I have a good voice, but I'd never make it as a star. So what?

14. What worries me most: 
My kids' dying before I do. They've promised me they won't... I hope they keep that promise.

15. When I turn my head left, I see:
My son and his friend watching Monsters Inc.

16. When I turn my head right, I see:
My deliciously old piano. 

17. You know I'm lying when:
I start giggling. I can't lie in real life. Though I do have a poker face when I know the outcome of a movie/game and I know you don't (I hate it when people give that kind of stuff away.)

18. What I miss most about the eighties:
Can't think of anything. Honest. I don't tend to miss the past, especially if I was living at home at the time (and I was).

19. If I was a character in Shakespeare, I'd be: 
Hamlet. Or Beatrice. Or Shylock. I'm probably most like Isabella in Measure for Measure... but I'd pretty much play anyone, male or female, except for Sir Toby Belch.

20. By this time next year:
I hope to have the research for my ghost book--and the writing--completely finished, and have it all out to the publisher.

Again, let me know if you decide to do the same meme. I'd love to know what your answers are.


  1. In hindsight, I almost wish I'd missed my wedding. If it wasn't for Stephanie...

  2. I know... it's far more because I wasn't there for you... not because of him...

    That's why I wished I'd been at your better wedding... if only to show support.

  3. I did it

    Actually, just realized that I never posted another exercise that I tried from your blog...will have to look for that.
