(Sorry I dropped the ball on Ten-Pin Tuesday this week.  Is anyone even liking that feature?  I haven't really gotten any feedback, so please leave a quick comment if you have an opinion one way or the other.  Thanks!)

I love reading random facts about people.  I think you learn a lot about a person by how they handle little random things.  So I'm kind of excited my friend Emily tagged me with the following questionnaire!

1.  If you were an animal, which would you be?
This question is always tough for me.  So I used a lifeline and googled it.  And according to this quiz, I would be a sheep or a beaver.  Nice. 

2.  If you could have dinner with anyone who would it be?
Emily's brilliant, and she said she would love to have dinner with ALL of her family.  It seems like people usually answer that they would want to have dinner with somebody famous (and possibly dead).  Frankly those conversations would be awkward enough to me without trying to avoid talking with my mouth full.  So I think I'm going to steal Emily's answer.  And not just my family, but my husband's as well.  And I would want to just sit out of the way and listen, watch, and just generally enjoy all the chaos and yelling and laughing.

3.  What would you say is the flaw in yourself you would most like to correct?

I think I care a little too much about what other people think.  But in those instances where I manage not to worry about it, it's so liberating!  I'd like to balance that better.

4.  Where do you see yourself this time next year?
Hopefully getting ready to upgrade the house and my car, but otherwise no major changes.  I'm loving the status quo right now.

5. Fill in the blank: When I have an afternoon totally to myself, I like to ______.
Get a pedicure and maybe do some shopping that includes browsing rather than just fulfilling objectives.

6. Are you a chocolate or vanilla kind of person?
Flavor: Chocolate.  Scent: Vanilla.

7. Would you {or have you} ever traveled solo?  Would you? Why/why not?
I have.  It's not my favorite.  I've done lots of plane rides solo, but staying in a strange city alone is pretty boring.  But I wouldn't turn down a solo trip to the beach. 

8.  Tell me about the best date you ever had.
This is pretty cheesy, but any date out with Tyler is fabulous.  Dinner and a movie with my best friend and love of my life just can't be any less.  (Though I admit that the two times we've gone to the Melting Pot were some of my favorite dinners.  And going to see Wicked was pretty amazing, of course.)

9. Which song has been running through your head lately?
Sadly, I had the Pajanimals jingle in my head most of the weekend.  It's usually whatever I've heard most recently, and lately that's probably a kid show.

10. Did you make any resolutions this year?  How are they going?
I did not.  I tend to make changes as I notice the need rather than waiting for a significant date.  Though I did decide to increase my record-keeping shortly after the new year, so I suppose you could consider my 5-year one-line-a-day journal something of a resolution.

And I'm going to tag my sister Jamie and my husband Tyler.  Also anyone else who wants to play.  Just leave a comment if you want to join the fun!


  1. There is a quiz?!?! That is awesome! I am a beaver also. And thanks for the props! :) Yes, I like your 10 pin. I have several bookmarked for later use ;)

  2. I love your ten pin feature, but I am usually blogging at all hours of the night while feeding my baby and don't always have energy to comment! It's fun to see what you find!

  3. I love the ten-pin thing too! It gets my creative juices warmed up, though I have plenty of projects that need to get done before I can dream.

  4. So I don't know if you know that I have a tumblr...
