#Blue Sky Tag – Time for a little fun and distraction…#TGIF
I’ve been invited to hop on to the Blue Sky Tag Challenge by Sally Cronin. The rules of the challenge are:
11 tags, 11 answers, 11 questions
Use the Blue Sky banner (that Rachael Ritchey designed).
It is sort of polite to mention the person who tagged you (even if you are busy and have not time for fun)
You need to answer the 11 questions set by your tagger (even though you wonder where they dredged them up from)
You will need to make up 11 original and interesting or funny questions for those you tag.
You need to tag 11 people
You can read Sally’s post and the answers to her questions HERE
And now for the questions Sally has put out for those of us she has tagged:
What was the name of your first pet and what did you love most about them? (if you have not had a pet, substitute, boyfriend, girlfriend, or film star!)
I didn’t have any pets – save for a few goldfish. But my first boyfriend was Brian. He lived on my street and we spent lots of time talking and plotting that we should elope and get married. I was 13, he was 12. Well, he went off to summer camp and quickly forgot about me when he met somebody else. I saw him a few years later and he apologized for his indiscretions and told me he ruined a good thing. Ya, well . . . he did, lol.
If you could meet anyone from history, who would you meet and why?
I don’t think I’d want to go too far back into history. I would have loved to have met with Norah Ephron. I think her and I could have been great friends. I love her writing, her honesty and after reading bios, almost all of her books, and watching documentaries about her I just feel that I can relate to her.
What is the most common misconception people have about you?
I think because of my chosen style and my big personality., at first appearance I come off as bold and sometimes intimidating to those who haven’t yet met me. Just proves one shouldn’t choose a book solely for its cover.
If you could buy any car in the world what would it be and why?
Lol, I’m not really a car freak, but I do like a bigger car with good pick-up. I’ve also become filled with high anxiety when driving on our crowded streets. I should think if I could afford to buy any car, I’d buy a limousine and hire a driver to do the driving for me.
Do you have a hobby your friends don’t know about?
Well, I really miss playing poker. I’m not sure if everyone knows that I enjoy the game and I used to be quite good at it. But I’ve given up that passion when I became a full time writer. Poker is a game that requires lots of time, patience and studying your opponents. Some say, an hour to learn and a lifetime to master.
What was the last movie you saw at the cinema?
I’m embarrassed to say, but I haven’t been to the movies in years. I just prefer to watch at home on my big screen TV, where I can pause it when necessary, and be comfortable on my couch.
Describe your perfect day?
Sun shining, no worries, and a glitch-free computer day.
Summer or winter?
Summer in winter – when I go away to the sunshine, leaving the cold winter behind.
Looks or Personality?
City or countryside?
Born and bred a city girl; I love the country for great escapes, but I require the hustle and bustle of city life.
Action or comedy?
I love to laugh so I’m always game for a good comedy, but also a great critic of comedies that aren’t funny. Give me a great chick-flick any day!
