Some Things You MIght Know... Some Things You Might Not...

Susan Gray from Gottawrite Girl tagged me and another friend as well! So I have combined the questions and am posting a little from each here.

Instead of tagging people back, I am going to open it up that you can post your answers right here and/or on your own blog. If you want to play along, please answer your favorite three questions in the comment section. Or... feel free to answer them all, if you want!
  1. What time did you get up this morning? 6:44 am
  2. Diamonds or pearls? Diamonds
  3. What do you usually have for breakfast? Fruit & a granola bar or pb & j on an English muffin
  4. Favorite sandwich? I hate sandwiches. I would rather eat left overs from last night's dinner then a sandwich. But if I have to eat one, I prefer a roasted veggie sandwich with mozzarella cheese on like a pannini or some sort of flat, crispy bread.
  5. What characteristic do you despise in others? Sarcasm, but when it is at the expense of others. I don't mind funny, humorous sarcasm, that is not meant to belittle someone. But I hate when someone is sarcastic to someone else in order to make them look stupid.
  6. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would you go? England, Scotland, Whales, and/or Ireland... preferably all in one trip.
  7. Where would you retire to? Maybe in the woods like Thoreau
  8. Are you a morning person or a night person? I used to be a night person, but having kids has forced me into a morning person... I’m a night person in morning person’s clothing.
  9. How are you today? SLEEPY! I've been with three-year olds all morning, saw a house for my other job, have to vacuum and prepare for my third job of the day – tutoring, and then will do all the Mommy things with my own kids – help with HW, make dinner, lunches for tomorrow, etc… Is it time for bed yet?
  10. What are you listening to right now? The sound of my dishwasher whirring and my computer humming, the wind chimes gently tinkling from my ceiling fan, and the clacking of my dog’s claws on the wood floors as she patrols.
  11. Do you wish on stars? Every chance I get. I also wish whenever I drive through a covered bridge, or on a wishbone, or on an eyelash... I am an ever-lasting, never-ending wisher of wishes.

Thanks for tagging me and consider you're all tagged now! HA!

Thanks for playing along, Sheri! Also, we have identical taste in sandwiches. Who'da guessed! : )

PJ Hoover said...

Sheri, I am an ever-lasting wisher also! I love to wish on stars, eyelashes, coins in fountains. Not many covered bridges around here!
So we can wish together!

I'll play along.

1. 7:15am
2. Not much of jewelry person. Can I choose cash instead?
3. Granola w/yogurt, OJ, coffee
4. Hmm. Tuna melt sounds good right now, or a taco...
5. Deceitfulness
6. I'd revisit Oxford.
7. The Adirondacks - during the summer months anyway
8. Morning person
9. Well, thank you.
10. The humming of my PC, traffic on the road outside my window.
11. Not really. There's too much light pollution in DC.

Uck! I woke up at 5 this morning. I hate being a night person stuck in a morning person's clothes! I remember fondly the days when I went to bed at 5 am!!!

Sheri said...

Susan, It was fun. I know I changed the questions a bit. I couldn't wrap my head around playing both rounds of tag. Hope you don't mind... I went to a local restaurant craving my fav sand, but aghast! they took it off the menu!!!!! 8(

PJ - yay to us every-lasting wishers! We have the one and only remaining covered bridge in NJ. It is really quaint and charming and when my youngest was very little, she used to call it the chocolate covered bridge... We still tease her about it!

Jeanie - that's the spirit! Thanks for playing along. I LOL about your comment about taking the money instead of the jewels! Funny! Oh and I hate deceitfulness too! It makes me think of any antagonist we create - maybe it is useful to make a list of all character traits we despise and give a bunch to the antag of our stories....

Beth - 5 am!!! Holy smokes, that's g-d awful early! I don't know how you do it. I thought 6:45 was bad! My husband wakes up in the 5 o'clock hour every morning too. No thank you!

Great Meme! :)

1. 6:30 a.m.
2. PB on toast. :)
3. Diamonds - I love diamonds. :)

I'm with you on the sleepy. :)

Keri, isn't PB on toast the best! The heat from the toast gets the PB all warm and creamy. And it's a great source of protein to start the day with.
