The Question Game on Steroids

A fun question game is circulating the web, and thanks to a post on the lovely August McLaughlin’s blog  I am excited to participate.  According to the rules of “Eleven Questions,” participants must:

  1. Post the rules.
  2. In the same post, answer the questions.
  3. Create eleven new questions to ask eleven new victims participants.
  4. Tag those people and share links to their blogs in your post.
  5. Let them know you’ve tagged them.

Here are August’s questions and my answers:

  1. What did you eat for breakfast?  Same thing I eat every single morning.  Peanut butter and jelly on whole wheat toast.

2. If you could re-live any day of your life, as often as you’d like, which would you choose? The day my son Alex was born.  My first labor was so extreme, I scheduled a planned C-section the second time around.  They loaded me up on good drugs and then gave me my baby.  The rest of the day I got to sleep, cuddle my newborn, and eat.  My family and friends visited and brought me flowers.  It was the perfect day!
3. Of the books you’ve read recently, which is your favorite? Come to the Edge by Christine Haag.  Haag chronicles her five-year romance with John F. Kennedy Jr. in this beautifully written memoir.  I loved getting to know more about the “real” John John.
4. You have front row seats and back stage passes for any concert. Who’s on stage? I should give a good answer here that showcases my excellent musical taste – which I really do possess, I swear.  The truth?  John Mayer.  I have such a huge crush on him.
5. Who’s the last person you hugged? My husband.  He demanded one while I was cooking dinner and wouldn’t leave until I gave in.  Good thing he is so cute.

6. What’s your favorite smell? Rosemary and the smell of my husband after a good work out.

7. What’s your best bargain-hunting or money-saving tip? Only buy what you really need.

8. What’s your funniest or strangest high school memory? My funniest stories always happened with my BFF Dani.  Most of them are not suitable for sharing.

9. How do you feel about your birthday? I love my birthday. I get to eat cake and open presents.
10. What do you not miss about being younger? Fighting with my dad.
11. What about you tends to surprise others? I think people are surprised that I am so quirky. 

Now for the BEST part—asking some of my favorite bloggers new questions. Here are the contestants I’ve chosen:

  1. Jessica Therrien 
  2. Mark Koopmans
  3. Brinda Berry
  4. Lissa Clouser 
  5. Christa Yelich-Koth
  6. J.C. Martin
  7. Gloria Richard
  8. Voula Grand
  9. Melissa
  10. Kristin Lamb
  11. Sharon K. Owen 


Your questions:
1. Who was your first love?
2. What is your favorite memory?
3. What do you do to cheer yourself up?
4. Do you love your job?
5. Would your younger self feel proud of who you have become?
6. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
7. What is your best trait?
8. Who is the hottest celebrity?
9. What is your biggest accomplishment?
10. What is the best thing you have learned as an adult?
11. If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?

Okay, now it’s your turn.  Please leave an answer to at least one of the questions in the comment section.  Feel free to ask me any questions as well.  I look forward to reading everyone’s responses!

  1. I love the peanut butter and jelly on toast for breakfast. It’s the way life should be lived! I also love the smell of rosemary. Thanks for the tag. I’ll let you know when I post.

    Great answers. I’ve done this before, so rather than posting it again on my blog, will just answer the questions here:
    1. My first serious boyfriend who I was with for 7 years. My second serious boyfriend is now my husband, and I couldn’t be happier!
    2. Playing Scrabble with my Mom after dinner when I was young.
    3. A good kung fu workout involving beating the poop out of something/someone, and cupcakes.
    4. I do enjoy it, but would love to write fulltime if I can.
    5. I can definitely say I followed my own path and am doing something I’ve always wanted to do.
    6. A bit of both, depending on my mood.
    7. I can be very organised when I choose to be,
    8. My current obsession is Daniel Henney. Google him and find out why!
    9. Achieving my 2nd degree black belt in Wing Chun. I’m the first female in our organisation to do so. 🙂
    10. That I can now truly do whatever I want.
    11. Probably some sort of fruit tree. Practical enough such that my pretty flowers are not just for show, but will become yummy edible fruit.

    I’m not big on these, but since you put me on your list, I’ll at least answer them in your blog. 🙂
    1. Warren from high school.
    2. It would not be appropriate to post on a public website. 🙂
    3. Dance!
    4. If you mean writing, yes. If you mean what I do to get paid– I LIKE my job.
    5. Most definitely, yes.
    6. I would have to say night owl.
    7. Looks? My smile. Personality? My ability to make people feel comfortable venting.
    8. That changes all the time. Right now? Either Karl Urban or Jensen Ackles.
    9. That I am willing to pursue the things I love.
    10. That I don’t always need a reason to feel the way I feel.
    11. I have no idea. I feel like I need to do some serious tree research first. 🙂

      Thanks Christa, I don’t usually fill these out either. It was moving day here and I needed a filler. The last question was a reference to a famous Barbara Walters interview question that she is still given a hard time about.
