Suey from It's All About Books tagged me for this and I decided to join in. I can't remember the last time I did something of this nature. I didn't get a chance to post anything else, so might as well take advantage of something. 


1. Do you bake? What's your favorite thing to make?

um, not really. I make bread once in a while. Occasionally a pie.

2. What's your favorite quote?
hm, I don't actually know. I used to collect quotes and things, but I don't really so much any more.


3. What's your biggest pet peeve?
Waiting around for people.

4. Who's your current favorite TV couple? (or movie, or book couple)
Probably Bones and Booth from Bones. I don't watch much else for TV.

5. Where's the best place you've ever visited?
NASA in Houston, Texas. I am a bit of an astronomy nerd.

6. What would you do if you could do anything for a whole day?
Probably read. I am very creative...

7. Look on the floor by your bed... do you have books there? How many?
Not on the floor, no. I actually don't keep books in the bedroom other than the book I read before I go to bed.

8. What's the best book you've read so far this year (since January)?
The new John Green or Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. One YA and one Adult.

9. What's your favorite book genre?
Fantasy.

10. What are you making for dinner tonight?
We ate all ready... I made steak (I had two leftover from yesterdays Valentine's supper), veggies, and pasta.

11. Why eleven questions? Any guesses?
I actually have no idea.

Then Care also tagged me for the same meme. It is different questions as per the instructions, so I might as well answer them here, too!

1. Tell me about any letters you’ve written lately to a friend just for the heck of it?
Well, I wrote a couple letters. I just have to either buy stamps or go to the post office...

2. Do you have a favorite beer?
We tend to drink Budweiser in this house, but that can change with prices...

3. If you ever write a book (or if you have), which genre would it be/is it?
If I ever wrote a book it would be fantasy.

4. What is your favorite dish to cook?
Home made spaghetti sauce.

5. Didn’t Trisha ask some awesome questions?
Yes, she did.

6. How would you have answered her No.9?
I have no idea either. I suppose it is not something I really think about.

7. Do you have a favorite number?
3. I have no idea why.

8. Tell me a nonfiction book idea subject that you think I should write a book on because there isn’t one already?
There are many periods of history that there is not nearly enough written about.

9. Did you like my answers to No. 5 for book that should be H.S. curricula?
I haven't read either of those books yet, so I can't really comment.

10. Red or white?
Red?

11. Would you be embarrassed to receive a postcard with artwork by Dali? ya know – the erotic variety? I have some if you want one. I’m kinda embarrassed to send.
nah, a postcard is a postcard. I am more curious why you have them in the first place?

  1. I bet there are little overlap on these questions that are getting generated. I tried to stay bookish but that didn't seem to happen. You really haven't read The Book Thief? Too much hype and love? That would make me nervous, too. But I thnk you will like many elements of it. And can you elaborate on the ideas for me to write a book? :) AND I bought a postcard collection on a certain artist and was not too aware abt the subject matter this guy has dne because his more famous works are more tame, probably. I eas incollege and love artist postcardcollections. You wil now be receiving a piece. Don't let anyone else but you get the mail!!!

    1. Yes, I have answered some questions a couple times. :) Yes, too much hype for The Book Thief. I do own it. I'll get there... I will have to think about the book idea. I was trying for a 'safe' answer.

  3. Suey tagged me too (my answers will go up Saturday) and I listed John Green's new book as my fav read so far this year too. I really should check out Bones sometime. I have a feeling I'd like that show.

    1. Oh, yes, Bones is a great show! I only just started watching it from the beginning at the end of last year. If I watched more TV I would be much further into it than I am...

  6. LOL! This was great! I think Booth and Bones is my favorite TV couple these days too. You are making me want to read the new John Green immediately.

  7. That was doubly fun because you had not one but two sets of questions and answers.

    I'm planning to borrow Kiddo's copy of Ready Player One. Everyone seems to love it!

  10. I took forward to reading Ready Player One sometime. It's on hold at the library, but may be awhile. NASA sounds like a blast actually.

    Ah, thanks for playing! You've been overwhelmed with tags you popular girl you! :)

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

I am so sorry, but I turned anonymous commenting off. I have had it from the very beginning, but that is how the spam is getting by my spam filter at the moment. If it is a big deal I will turn it back on and moderate all comments. I also changed moderation from older than 14 days to older than 7.
