Getting to Know You

I am totally stealing this blog post from Leanne Banks over at Riding with the Top Down but it was so good I figure she won't mind since I'm linking back to her.

Y'all know a lot about me, but there's more. And we'd like to get to know you. One random commenter will win a book from my stash. I'm looking forward to reading your answers, and please feel free to elaborate.

1. Are you

A. A dog person

B. A cat person

C. Your home is a no-pet zone

2. Are you a

A. City person

B. Country person

C. Burbs

3. Do you prefer

C. Classical music

4. Are you a

A. Beach person

B. Mountain person

C. Lake person

5. When given a choice, you would choose to watch the following television shows:

A. Castle

B. American Idol

F. Other (name names ~g~)

My answers? 1. I like cats but don't have one now. 2.Burbs. I like trees AND close proximity to shopping. 3. I like most types of music with a couple exceptions. 4. Mountains. 5. Castle for sure! And while I didn't think I was going to enjoy the new AI judges, I'm enjoying Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez. 6. Baseball. I watched it with my daddy when I was little and still enjoy the game. I really need to support the local farm league team this summer. 7. The car I have -- it gets good mileage and most importantly, it's paid for! 8. Tea. I like it iced and sweetened and with lemon. I also like it hot with sugar and milk. 9. All of the above. I could also name names but I won't. 10. Since I have no husband any more (and it's my game), I could pick my favorite hunk Hugh Jackman, but instead I pick Barack Obama. This isn't any sort of political statement, just that I think it would be fascinating to have dinner with the president. Dinner with my sons is a given -- any time I can arrange it.

Your turn!

1. A, I'm a dog person, despite having two cats. I guess I'm an animal person all around.

2. If I lived in a real metropolitan city, I'd say A, but I'm happy with the burbs. A little bit country, a little bit city (or rock n roll as Donnie Osmond would say).

3. Rock Music

4. Beach, I think, but not necessarily 'tropic' beach. I also like pacific northwest kind of beach. I like the sound of waves.

5. Glee all the way.

6. NFL football

7. I like my new car. If it ran on something other than gas, it would be even better.

8. Diet Coke

9. Charlie Sheen

10. This one's harder. Given the list, I think Steven Tyler would be the most fun.

1. Dog person
2. Country -- but I like going to a city for shopping, eating, entertainment.
3. Classical and country; what a combination!
4. Mountains, but probably a perfect setting would be mountains on the coast :-).
5. Glee, Castle, AND American Idol. Why limit myself?
6. College football. The rest of it . . . blah. Actively hate basketball.
7. None of the above. I prefer an SUV because of the safety factor.
8. Coffee. The day doesn't start until there's coffee.
9. All of the above. I feel sad about Charlie Sheen. He's exhibiting a lot of the signs of brain damage from heavy drug use, and everyone's laughing at him. The world would be better off without Gadhafi. Lindsay Lohan . . . who cares?
10. Abraham Lincoln. He's the only one on the list who can tell me about the afterlife.

Instigator said...

1. You didn't have an answer for all of the above :-)
2. City
3. Rock
4. Mountains
5. Castle
6. Football
7. An expensive sports car (Italian optional)
8. Tea - yes, I know I drink coke every day and not tea but that's just because it's more convenient and I'm too lazy to make tea
9. All of the above
10. Out of that list? Steven Tyler.

Good Afternoon!

1. I am a dog person, always have been. I don't have a problem with cats, I'm just a dog person.

2.I would have to say Burbs, I grew up in the mountains and now live in the burbs. I really love being far enough out of the city so its now really crowded, but close enough to get to things easily.

3. Country music. I love most types of music, but prefer country.

4.This one is hard. I am a mix of beach and mountain.

5. Glee. I have become addicted to it. I love the music!

6. Football! I love watching the Titans play with my hubby!

7. Dream car is a 1964 1/2 Mustang Convertable. That is the car I have wanted for as long as I can remember.

8.Soda. I am a Pepsi girl.

9.All of the above! Just crazy people out there!

10. Out of that list it would be Steven Tyler. But if I could pick anyone I would pick Robert Pattinson, not only because I have a mad crush on him, but because he is funny and seems like he would be an interesting person to hang out with and chat.

Have a wonderful day!!

Running late today!

Hmmm... let's see:

1. Cat person! Though I've been considering a dog for the kids for a while.

2. Burbs. I really like the country, but hate being so far out that going "into town" is an event.

3. Rock music, baby!

4. Mountain girl. My ideal place to get away!! I hate the beach, even though I was born in Florida. Maybe if I could experience arocky beach one day I might change my mind. But I hate the sand.

5. Castle! Oh, yeah.

6. Stick a pencil in my eye! Please!

7. The hubby has an older BMW (AMG) and I love it!!! Has great power, but the stupid thing is easy to break (says the girl who seems to run over something every time she drives it.).

8. Dt. coke

9. All of the above, getting crazier by the minute.

10. I think I'd like to have dinner with Stephen King. I'd love to have the chance to sit down and discuss creativity, writing life, etc., with him.
