Fun Blog Award

I was nominated for a blog award from one of my newest followers from across the pond Zoe.

I love doing these little quizzes and things.  Here are my answers to her questions for me...

Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because I was creeping on other people...a lot.  I thought it would be less weird for me to creepily read their posts if I had my own blog to hide behind, but it turned out to be pretty fun and a cool way to get ideas and feedback from other people.

What is your favorite thing to do on a rainy day?

I really like to read and sleep.  I like to do those on days that aren't rainy, but they just seem better when it is rainy.  I picked up a new book today.  Let me know if you'd read it.  It looks like it's some sort of collection of short stories.

If money was no object, where would you like to visit?

KB and I have very different tastes when it comes to vacations.  He likes to do adventurous things and I like to relax and do lazy non-adventurous things.  I think the only place that we'd both like to go is Greece (since their economy is terrible now maybe we could get a good deal!).  KB really wants to see the historical stuff (he knows a lot about that) and I think it just looks pretty and warm.

What was the last song you listened to?

The last song I heard was at work when I was listening to the radio.  Yes that is the song on the Internet Explorer commercials.  I spent all afternoon trying to figure out where I had heard that song.

Would you rather be a dog or a cat for a day?

I'd totally rather be a dog.  Specifically one of my dogs.  They get to lay around all day and then get lots of treats and love when they get home. Case in point...

If time travel was invented, where would you go?

I don't know if there's a certain period that I would like to go to.  I really like the old 60s James Bond movies, I'd like to magically time travel to a James Bond movie....preferably one on a tropical island.

Do you prefer city life or country life?

I'm not sure I've ever really experienced city life.  The biggest city I've ever had to deal with wasn't really that big in the scheme of things.  Regardless, I think I'd rather be in the country.  KB likes to pee outside and I want to get chickens.

What is your favorite brand of nail polish?

I used to really like OPI and think that it was the best.  Last year I got Essie's Carry On and really fell in love with Essie.  I'm a terrible nail biter, so I don't normally wear a lot of nail polish, but this one stays on really well and isn't that expensive.

High end or drug store make up?

I don't normally wear a ton of make up, but I guess what I do wear is a mixture of high end and drug store.  I normally wear Bare Minerals Faux Tan and blush daily with mixtures of Lorac, Mac, and drug store eye liners and shadows.  I always normally wear Maybelline Great Lash mascara in black.  I like it because it wipes clean easily.  I hate having clumps of mascara left on my eyelashes even after I've washed my face.

What was the last thing you bought?

I bought a Diet Coke today from Subway.  That's not fun at all.  I wish I had bought some sort of cool clothes or jewelry, but just a Diet Coke.

How would you describe yourself in three words?

I never know how to answer these things.  I'm terrible at describing myself.  If I had to guess I'd say smart, sassy and small.  I just like the alteration and I am shorter than almost everyone I know.

I'm cheating and nominating anyone that wants to participate - feel free to talk about random things about you too!


  1. Great answers! The last thing I bought today was a Starbucks iced green tea and an extremely large bag of kettle corn. Not to exciting, but very satisfying :)
