Reining in the responses

20 Apr

By the time you read this I will be on my way to NYC for my good friend’s bachelorette party. She is getting married in St. John the first weekend of June. I can’t wait to stand beside her on her big day! And I also can’t wait for some fun in the city tonight!

Thanks to everyone who asked me something yesterday. I honestly had no idea what I was going to write about for my R post if I only got crickets. I might have written about something serious like rabies (it’s not a joke, y’all) or maybe something fun like rock concerts. Luckily, you don’t have to find out. I picked one or two questions from each person. I’ll save the others for a rainy day 🙂

On with it…

Do you have the rest of your A to Z posts planned?
Do you think you’ll do this again next year?
I do not have the rest of my A to Z posts planned. I did have many for this week done ahead of time, which I completed during my hibernation day. I haven’t had that leisure so far to do it again for the rest. Whether or not I do it next year will depend on what is happening in my life. It was interesting to start the  A to Z Challenge so soon after starting blogging in general. I guess it forced me to jump in with both feet!


Eugene from Uttley’s Take:
Would you rather marry someone rich just for their money, or live in the streets with someone you truly love?
I wouldn’t marry someone rich just for their money and the person I love wouldn’t allow us to live on the streets. I learned from being with someone before who didn’t work hard, that the person I will be happy with does what they can to support themselves and their loved ones. I don’t care if he is bagging groceries or sweeping streets, as long as he is doing something to show he wants to support his family.


Dee from DeeCoded:
How did you get popular?
I definitely would not say I am popular. I am blessed to have amazing family and friends in my life. Since I started blogging I have felt lucky to connect with fellow bloggers- like you!! I was joking yesterday that I was obviously popular because of the Liebsters. I have a sarcastic sense of humor sometimes that apparently I need to work on coming across the right way in print 🙂


Bhavya from Just Another Blog:
Favorite quote?
Happiness is never stopping to think if you are. -Palmer Sondreal


JCC from Rogue Mission:
What is your favorite chemical?
My “favorite” chemical is whatever mixture is used to keep my hair looking like I have a lower IQ. Only kidding, I don’t have a favorite chemical but I do love that people were smart enough to find a way to keep me blonde.


Ghadeer from Spill beans:
What would you do differently if all your actions were anonymous?
This is a tough one! If all my actions were anonymous, I would definitely find a way to make money not an issue. I would then think it would be fun to take care of all my loved ones financial issues without them knowing who did it!


Shay from Trashy Blog:
What’s your biggest dream, the thing that you most want to accomplish (that you haven’t yet)?
I am not ready for children yet, but I definitely want to be a mom. This is one thing I really hope I am able to accomplish- bringing someone into the world and (hopefully) raising them to reach their potential. I also want to travel as much as possible.


Lori from The Next Step:
Where is the best/worst place you ever lived?  
I think the best place I ever lived was the house I spent my middle and high school years in. My parents built a Colonial with a farmer’s porch, big back deck and huge back yard. It had a room above the garage just for us to hang out in. It is definitely my dream house now. The worst place I ever lived was actually with my friend who just visited. She and I spent a while in this disgusting apartment. No matter how often we cleaned and bleached the place from top to bottom, there were always roaches climbing everywhere. Our neighbors were so gross that they came in from their place. It was brutal! And in Florida, so they came in droves. Yuck! Luckily, we can laugh about it now.


What’s your favorite meal? If you could have lunch with a famous person, who would it be?
My mom makes the best spaghetti. I would probably have Oprah come to her house for dinner and hope that she brought all of her favorite things to share with us!


Would you rather be rich or just well off?
I would rather be comfortable. I would like to be able to pay my bills, have a healthy savings and still be able to go out to whatever dinner I want, go on trips when I want and buy the things I want. Comfortable would be enough for me!


Which of your blog posts has received the most views? What advice would you give to a new blogger?
My post Wrap the Fat received the post page views. This is probably because Melissa, the girl who sells the product, shared the post on her Facebook page. The second most viewed was Justifying Hibernation. I am hoping that one is because so many people need their “me time” like I do! As far as advice to new bloggers, seeing as how I am only just over a month into blogging myself, I consider myself as new as you can get! I have been having fun, visiting other blogs and making this about becoming part of a community and enjoying my writing instead of worrying about page views and numbers. It has worked for me for now!


Mina from Mina Burrows:
What is your favorite thing to make for dinner?
I’m told I make a really good lasagna. I love cooking for other people. I live alone so unless someone is here, I tend to eat cereal for dinner though!


What is your favorite drink?
I am addicted to Diet Coke. I’ll order a Stella at most bars, Sauvignon Blanc when I want a white, Malbec when I need a red and Absolut and water with lemons when I am having a big night 🙂


Dana at Kiss My List:
Do you put the drinking glasses in your cabinets upright or upside down?
Definitely upside down!

Questions- ask away!

19 Apr

When I was in college, my favorite drinking game was Kings. Some people call it Circle of Death; some call it King’s Cup. I am sure there are other names, but for the sake of this post and because this is my blog, we are going to call it Kings.

Any ways, you play by arranging a deck of cards in a circle around a cup facedown. Each person draws a card and each card corresponds to a rule. Drawing a King requires you to pour some of what you are drinking into the middle cup and the person who draws the fourth King has to drink what is in the cup. The other rules range from having to drink in waterfall order to busting a rhyme. However, one of my favorite rules is Question. The person who draws this card has to ask any person at the table a question. They have to respond with another question- related or otherwise- to someone else at the table and so on and so forth until someone is stumped or is laughing so hard they can’t answer.

I always won at this rule (if winning means coming up with the most absurd question to stump my friends).

We played so often that the apartment which was our main meeting spot had a standard set of rules I’d made hung on the fridge. People soon became sick of playing Kings. Or maybe they just stopped wanting to play when I was around because I always “won”! Occasionally I manage to get an unsuspecting group of friends to play with me now, but the victims players are catching on.

I know it’s not because people just want to avoid me altogether, because I’m obviously popular. I say this because I was just nominated for my 7th Liebster (See 1-2 here and 3-6 here)! This is crazy! I’m beginning to think I am doing something right. Everyone check out Two Bored Housewives. Thanks ladies!


Side Note: I thought it would be fun if you all asked me questions which I can respond to for my R post. Get it? Questions for Q and Responses for R? Ahhh… this is going to make my life so easy if people actually participate. If nobody asks a question I will be forced to come up with another idea and now that we are more than halfway through the A-Z Challenge I am running low on those.

PS: That wasn’t really a side note. It was actually a plea for help. I told you I was officially out of my mind.  Help me! Ask questions!

Ask away- Happy Friday!!

Today was Day Seventeen (or Day Q) of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge
