Have you seen the “10 Questions” game that’s been making the rounds? It’s another fun way to learn more about each other, in ways both serious and silly. Mr. Bartolini ‘tagged’ me a week or so ago, and Dear Nia laid down the challenge again yesterday, so I figured it was time to get crackin’…
(Today’s trip through the archives will be Snowy Pond Photos. Mouse-over for the dates…)
1. Describe yourself in seven words.
Gardener. Cook. Writer. (Grand)Mom. Wife. Dreamer. Friend.
2.What keeps you up at night?
A baby monitor that makes some very odd noises – which have nothing to do with monitoring said baby.
3.Who would you like to be?
Me, of course! I much prefer my own baggage to anyone else’s.
4.What are you wearing?
Jeans and a sweater. Longjohns and sweats. Pyjamas. (Not all at once – it took three tries to get this post written!)
5. What scares you?
Threats to the Food System. The thought of raising Angel. The thought of giving her back. Politicians of all stripes.
6.What are the best and worst things about blogging?
Lots of ‘bests,’ from having a convenient place to practice writing, to keeping the family up-to-date, to all the wonderful folks I meet. The worst? Not having the time to do as much as I’d like.
7.What was the last website you visited?
Not Always Right. It’s a bunch of reader-generated stories from the Retail Trenches. It’s refreshing to know that Americans don’t have a monopoly on being stupid in public.
8. What’s the one thing you would change about yourself, if you could?
I would be thinner. As long as it didn’t require strenuous exercise. Or giving up wine…
9. Slankets: Yes, or no?
Aw, HELLS no…
10. Tell us a little about the person(s) who tagged you.
You’ve all met John – he was even re-introduced here on Monday – so I’ll give you the scoop on Nia: She’s a wonderful photographer, who lives in Istanbul. Her pictures transport me to a place I’d love to visit someday.
My thanks to both of them!
Now, for the pass-along part. My thinker’s not in the best shape these days, but I got three…
Linda Brown, Life on a Colorado Farm – my first blogger friend.
Nate Fakes, Nate’s Ramblings – An up-and-coming young cartoonist, who chanced on this blog while “walking around the neighborhood” last Halloween. I’m glad he did… (Pssst! Nate! I’m sending people over, so tidy up a bit! And, for God’s sake, put some pants on…)
Sarah (aka The Butterfly), Pyrex in Wonderland – Yeah, she’s my kid. I really want to see her answers to the questions, though…
You others can do as you please, but know that I enjoy your blogs, and I think others will too.
Here’s this morning’s view of my snowless pond…
We’ve got snow showers in the forecast for tonight, but my weather-sense isn’t buying it.
