You have made it all the way here, so you may as well sit down, take a minute to look around, and enjoy. What you will find, depends on the day and my mood. You just never can tell.

Tagged Again! - 11 Things.

Welp, you guessed it, I've been tagged! Thank you to Allyn for this honor and fun! Check out Allyn's blog HERE.  

And now for the rules of the tag:

1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their site. (check)
2. Post 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer 11 questions from the person who tagged you.
4.  Yes, there are more but this is as far as I got.  I'm working on Leif's story after all and I simply don't have any excess energy to hunt down and tag 11 people.  So...

Here are 11 random things about me:

1.  I love flowers.  The smell, the colors, the bees.  I just love everything about them.  

2.  I don't like mung beans.  I didn't know this about myself until I tried what looked like a really good veggie recipe.  All I can say is, ucky.  

3.  My favorite candy is Harry and David Gummy Bears, although they get harder and harder to find as time goes on.  

4.  I want to travel, if I only had the funds.  The list is extensive of places I want to see.  Ireland, and Scotland are top.  Then Rome, Greece, and Italy.  Finally, I want a nice long trip to Australia.  

5.  I am a huge fan of super heroes.  My favorites, to name a few, Iron Man, Thor, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Wolverine (Does wolverine count as a super hero?).  

6.  My birthday is Cinco De'Mayo.  I will be having a fiesta at my house, around 6.  Let me know if you are coming.  BYOB.

7.  I can't draw to save my life   I can do colors and abstract, but don't ask me to draw anything in particular as I can't.  It's shameful really.  

8.  I love to cook.  Clean up, not so much, but the cooking part is really fun.  I wish I had a dish washer so that I could cook more often and not get overwhelmed with the clean up.  

9.  As I am almost a vegetarian  I have a guilty pleasure in bacon.  Why, oh why does it tempt me so?

10.  Out of all the people in my life that have passed on, I miss my grandma Spence and my Aunt Dottie the most.  Not that I don't miss all the others, but they weigh on my mind more often.  

11.  Last, thank God, but not least, I wish I were taller.  Not like HUGE taller, but just an few inches or so. I wonder if that is why I spend so much time in high heels.  I like the view from up higher.  

And now, here are the questions for Allyn:

1.  Do you believe in the death penalty for people like the Boston bomber? If not, why?  - Yes.  I do believe in the death penalty.  I'm not going into why, as I don't feel like schluffing through the hate mail right now.  
2.  If you ever decide to right a biography about yourself, what would you title the book? - Lost in the Dark... (No seriously  I've pondered this before)
3. Robert Downey, Jr., Zack Efron, Taye Diggs, Brad Pitt, or Keith Urban? Or for you men Julia Roberts, Charlize Theron, Salena Gomez, Mariah Carey, Kerry Washington.  - Robert Downey and then THOR.  Shame on you for forgetting Mr. Helmsworth.  You may have hurt his feelings!
4.  What electronic device could you absolutely not live without, besides your computer? - My ipod/phone.  I need the music more often than I care to admit.  

5.  Are you more afraid of Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Floods, or Thunderstorms? - Tornadoes.  We dont really have earthquakes too often here in Ohio, nor Hurricanes, but tornadoes cause some fierce damage.  
6.  Which actress/actor do you look most like? - None.  I was once told I reminded them of the beach chic in 10, but I highly doubt that.   

7.  Which bothers you the most: Sloppy people; arrogant people; loud people; or negative people. - Oh man that's hard.  Arrogant is up there, but so are the loud people.  

8.  What major thing would you change about yourself if you could? - My nose.  I hate it.

9.  If you could own some kind of store, what would it be? - A coffee/book store.  I have a dream of what it will be.  I pick out and dream up shelves and tables and wall art for it all the time.  One day...

10. Of all the writing and illustrating awards out there, which would be your favorite to win?  I'm not all that excited about awards.  Most of them are more political then talent or story oriented.

11. How would you handle a really bad review of your writing? Would you cry? Would you want to contact that person and ask them why they were so negative? Would you give up? Would you just forget about it? - I'd give myself a good cry.  Then I would move on a forget about it.  If I got several for the same piece, I would take a good long look at the writing and see if I could figure out what it was that my readers didn't like.  Then I would work harder on my new works to make sure they were even better than what I had done in the past.  It's really all we can do.  Get better and try harder every day.  

That's it ya'll!  Have a great week.  Hope you enjoyed the random.  



  1. I have never even heard of mung beans!

    1. I would say pass on them if you ever find them. Ugh...the memory is way more than enough for me. :)

  2. Yes, what are mung beans? I'll be careful, though :P

    1. It's a green colored bean that is used in Asian dishes and now and then I guess in Indian dishes. Its supposed to be sweet and savory but it was not one for my palate. It is used to form a paste or can be eaten as a bean.

      No thanks...I'll stick with my plain ole regular beans.

      Thanks for stopping by.
