Random Stuff

The lovely Yat-Yee gave me a blog award in which I have to answer the following with one word. Dang, it was hard. I even fudged it some, being the rebel that I am. But having to answer these questions made me realize a few things:

1. I hate my phone (It dials people ALL THE TIME that I don't mean to call)
2. Answering food questions with one word is REALLY hard!!
3. I spend too much time at Trader Joe's.
4. I am stalling because I have deadlines to meet that I don't want to work on.

Your charge at the end caught me off guard. I bet you get fewer comments on this post because people don't want to answer them. ;)

I want to visit you in Ireland. I have a historical fiction novel that I want to research there.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Ha! I already answered them on my blog thanks to the lovely Yat-Yee.
I LOVE Ireland. One of these days I'm going to do a post on some of my lovely times there.

I love how you don't stick to one word on all of them. It made me smile. Ireland does seem magical. And muffins with butter...ummm.

I have a smart phone...Sprint's iPhone ripoff. It doesn't accidentally dial people but sometimes it locks up. So I guess that's the flip side to making "butt calls" all the time.

Yat-Yee said...

Thanks for answering these questions. Didn't realize the one word thing would be hard. I love that you're not wearing a frown!

And being called lovely by two lovely ladies in one blog is simply fabulous! Thanks!

Lisa and Laura said...

You know what? There's no way I'm answering this because right now if I had to tell someone the last thing I did I'd have to answer: Watch The Hannah Montana Movie. That's just not information I'm willing to make public.

Sarah said...

I just saw Myrna's response and was caught off guard by the order at the end. I followed it :)

I hope you get to go to Ireland, and I'd also like to note that you know how to make your muffins, "warm with butter". So good.

Susan R. Mills said...

I read, but I'm not answering. Will you forgive me?

MG Higgins said...

What I will remember from this post is Trader Joe's and hairy pets. Love 'em both.

Jackee said...

Great list! And I was born in ALBQ too! I'll have to take up the challenge tomorrow. Thanks for posting.

Julie Dao said...

It was so fun to read your answers, Shelley! This thing really is hard - I'm way too wordy to do this challenge very often.

Elana Johnson said...

The softest socks in the world? Sounds heavenly. :)

I linked you in my blog today because you inspired me to write about prologues.
