This Week’s Questions

1. If you had to choose a country to live in besides USA (or the country you live in), which would it be?

I would choose France.  I love all things French and took years of French in school.  Although, I can’t speak very well, I know enough to get by and I think I would actually become more fluent if I lived there and was forced to speak it all the time.  And the food there!  Wine and cheese.  Fresh bread, croissants, and pastries.  I think I could be very happy there.

2. Which would be worse, wearing flip flops in the snow or wearing gloves in the summer?

Flip flops in the snow would be worse.  I hate having cold feet!

3. Fried or Baked and why?

Baked.  And believe me, I have my choice of fried foods living here in the South.  But I actually do preferred baked things.  And I never fry food at home.

4. If you were an entertainment reporter, which celeb would you love to interview and why?

Sandra Bullock.  She’s had a crazy ride lately and I think she would be fun to talk to.  There would be lots of laughing I am sure.

5. What was your favorite book as a preteen/teenager?

I remember reading “The Thorn Birds” when I was in High School and loved it.  I thought it was epic!  I don’t remember what I liked reading in Jr. High although I loved going  to the Library. 

6. List your top 3 guilty pleasure television shows.

Real Housewives of New York City, The Soup, and Bethenny Getting Married.


7. What bumper sticker slogan best describes you/your attitude/your life?

I have it printed on the sidebar of my blog:  “Never do anything you wouldn’t want to explain to the paramedics.”

8. If you were to join a circus - what performer would you be?

I have never been to the Circus nor do I think I’ll ever go to the Circus.  And, I don’t feel like I am missing anything.  I’d probably be the cotton candy vendor. :)

How fun to get to know more about you. I have been to Italy and France and loved them both. I would choose Italy. I just loved the warm and comfortable way I was treated there.

Fun! Fun! Fun! I love posts like this! It's such a fabulous way to get to know all our favorite bloggers better. Keep the questions (and answers!) comin'! ;-)

Leigh of Bloggeritaville said...

what fun! I love these things...getting to know people!

Allyson said...

Oh this was fun! I, too, think I could live a long and happy life in France. The food, the language, the history!! I fell into a total French funk after seeing "Julie and Julia" wanting to have nothing to do with anything that WASN'T French. I've had 5 years of French and sadly, most of it has left me...but I can still read it some and figure out the rest through context. I think French men are obnoxious but what does that matter when you're making sweet, buttery love to a croissant??

Maura @ Lilac Lane Cottage said...

Hello! I found your blog through Janean at Sweetwater was the name that caught my eye. I LOVE pickles and cheese! I just read your questions and answers and I see you love France too. I was there in 99 with my Sister in Paris but I'd LOVE to see the countryside one day. If I could choose anywhere in the world to live...I think it would be a toss up between England or France. I can't remember the rest of your questions! Anyway I'm glad I stopped by ...I hope you're having a wonderful day. Maura :)

micah @ the yellow front door said...

I can't get enough of these random list thingies! Your slogan rocks, by the way. Words to live by! ;)

Melanie said...

I love The Thornbirds. It is on the top 3 list of my favorite movies and that says a lot. I don't like movies much.

I like your answer about France. Didn't think about all those pastry shops.

And, Sandra Bullock would be fun!

Good answers.
