Without further adieu, here we go!
Do you prefer coffee or tea in the mornings?
What book have you read over and over again?
I think I read Toni Morrison's BELOVED about three times. That was a pretty hot book when I was in college, and it seems like every literature class I took had it on its reading list. I didn't mind though; it's one of my all-time favorites. By the way, her other books are AMAZING, too.
What’s your favorite outdoor activity?
I'm not really an outdoor kinda girl, but I do love working in the my gardens (flower and vegetable). I also love to go fishing! Even if the fish aren't biting, I still find it very relaxing (as long as my kids aren't providing the soundtrack with their bickering . . .grrrr).
Do you cook and/or bake straight from the recipe, or do you get creative and throw things together in the kitchen?
I'm usually really anal when it comes to following a recipe; I rarely deviate from it. Sometimes I'll add a couple additional ingredients, but that's as "wild" as I get.
Where is your favorite place to visit in the United States?
I haven't been to many places in the U.S. (sad, but true). Out of the few places I have visited, I'd have to say my favorite was Key West. I loved the whole vibe of that place, and it's absolutely beautiful there.
Which animals must you see when visiting a zoo?
Oh geez . . . I don't know. The monkeys?
What’s your favorite television show airing today?
Modern Family. LOVE IT!
What’s your favorite television show of all time?
Another hard one. Umm . . . I'm not sure if I have just one. Some of my all-time favorites (past and present) are X-Files, Moonlight, American Dreams, Vampire Diaries, Revenge, Grimm, Friends, Big Bang Theory, The Walking Dead, The Tudors, pre-John Stamos ER, the first three seasons of Grey's Anatomy . . . I'm sure there are more . . .
What’s your favorite movie of all time?
My overall favorite is Titanic. It's the only movie I've ever gone to see THREE TIMES at the theater. The ending of that movie STILL gets me :o( I also have a special place in my heart for "A Christmas Story." It was the first movie I ever saw at the theater, and it reminds me of my childhood--no, I wasn't born in the '40's, but the movie was filmed in my hometown of Cleveland. I absolutely ADORE that movie :o)
What do you like to snack on when at the movie theater?
Snack? What's that? I never buy snacks at the theater--too darn expensive. Back before I was a frugal mom, I used to always buy a blue-raspberry slurpee.
Who is your current Hollywood or otherwise famous crush?
Hugh Jackman. Yes, he's hot, but he also seems like a really nice guy. He kind of reminds me of a pre-psycho Mel Gibson.
That's all there is! Now, I will tag the following
A. G. Howard
J. A. Bennett
