The Quizzes Keep Coming!


Thanks again, Magic Violinist for a chance to answer more questions! That's another major award!

  1. Link back to the person who nominated you.
  2. Attach the icon to your site.
  3. Answer the attached questions.
  4. Nominate six bloggers who you feel deserve this award and notify them about their nominations. 
1. What is your favorite color?
Green, although blue is a close second. I think I like green because it seems to fit all the seasons in some way or another.

2. What is your favorite animal?
Well, a dog is hard to beat, especially since we've got an awesome one. I still really like monkeys, though.

3. What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink?
Hands down it's water. It refreshes. It's healthy. It's one of those things that can really make you feel better when you drink it. Plus, I sweat very easily, so I'm constantly needing water.

4. What is your favorite number?
I don't know if I have a favorite number. I always liked 13 as a kid because I refused to believe anything so arbitrary as a number could be lucky or unlucky. I wore number 22 when I played baseball because my favorite player wears number 22. The number 73 is kind of cool, for all the reasons Sheldon Cooper likes it. I like numbers.

5. What is your favorite day of the week? 
I really don't know on this one. I like every day for different reasons. I probably like weekends the best because I don't work at the hospital as often over the weekends so I have more time to hang out with Stacy and the family, play games, watch movies, or whatever else sounds good.

6. What is your favorite flower?
I don't have a favorite since I like a lot of variety. I really like the simplicity of daisies. They fit my general taste.

7. What is your passion? I wish I knew. I have lots of things I love, but sadly, day-to-day life and complications have sort of squelched that part of my psyche. I'm trying to rediscover it.

8. Do you watch television?
I do. Not a TON, but it is a nice way to unwind at the end of a day. I watch mostly sit-coms, like "The Big Bang Theory" or "Modern Family." "Go On" is becoming a family favorite. Stacy and I successfully caught up on 7 seasons of "30 Rock" and now we can enjoy the series finale with the rest of the country.

9. Who is your favorite author?
Hemingway. I love the straightforward style of his writing. I appreciate that he can convey a very complex and deep story without needing to confuse the reader with long sentences and archaic language. I love Tolkein, for different reasons.

10. Do you like 80s movies?
Yes, I do. They were fun and quirky and had great writing and characters. The best ones didn't have to stoop to low levels for a cheap laugh.

11. How do you like your eggs?
Mixed in some sort of dough or batter. Please don't make me eat them! I didn't do anything wrong! I can make them pretty well, though.

12. When did you discover blogging?
I discovered it a number of years ago and thought it could be a great way to do online journaling and share pictures and things. I'm not the greatest blogger, but I enjoy it when I do write.

13. Why do you like to blog? 
It's a fun way to share a lot about myself and also share thoughts I'm having. I also like sharing things that our family is doing.

1. Thing 2 at I Don't Eat My Drumsticks.
2. My mom, of I Don't Have a Blog but I Often Have Witty Things to Say.
3. Peter, at I Also Do Not Have a Bog, but Maybe I Should.
4. Dave, of News of My Demise (or I Enjoyed Arguing with Illogical People at Facebook--Until I Took a Break).
5. Chuck, at I Can't Think of Any Other People Who Might See This and Do It So I Picked a Random Name.
6. Adelaide, at See Number 5 Above.

Wow. Other than the eggs, passion, and author, we're a lot alike on this.
