Let's Play 20 Questions . . . Plus 15

Since I've been sadly lacking in ideas for interesting blog posts lately (maybe it's the visions of sugarplums dancing in my head), I'm resorting to these questions (and my answers to same) that I saw posted on the Internet a few years ago.  Here we go.

1)  Do you like blue cheese?
      No!  That stuff is moldy, you know.

      Yes, for one (stupid) year in college.

3)  Do you own a gun?  
      "Property protected by Smith & Wesson 4 Days A week.  You Pick

      daughter say.)

4)  What flavor of Kool Aid is your favorite?
      Grape, hands down, but I haven't had any for decades.

5)  Do you get nervous before dental appointments?
      Yes, but not as much as I used to.

11)  What's your favorite hobby?
        Quilting.  With knitting running a close second.

12)  Do you have A.D.D.?
        Nope, too lazy to be that active.

13)  Do you wear glasses or contacts?
        Gotta have 'em for close work.  Sigh.

14)  What's your middle name?
        Ann.  Although I use my maiden name in my "official" signature.

15)  What are your thoughts at this moment?
        I wish those dirty dinner dishes in the kitchen would magically
        wash themselves.

16)  Name 3 drinks you regularly consume.
        Lattes, black tea (always iced), and kombucha.

17)  What is a current worry of yours?

18)  What do you currently hate?
        My uninhabited quilt room.  Because it's uninhabited.

20)  What do you plan on doing on New Year's Eve this year?

        Never tried, but they sound cold.

26)  Can you whistle?
        Yup, but just as off-key as I can sing. 

27)  What is your favorite color?
        Orange.  Everybody gives me a hard time about wearing so much
        of it.

28)  What songs do you sing in the shower?
        None.  It would be too frightening.  (See #26 above.)

29)  Would you be a pirate?
        Heck, no.  I'm afraid of big ships.

        today when adorable two-year old boy twin walked toward Papa 
        Pea with his little lips pursed and head pointed skyward to give a 
        good-bye kiss, forgot there was a step in front of him and went

        Broken nose.  Ouch.  Owie.  OW-EEE.

34)  Do you love where you live?

35)  Would you change your first name if you could?
        Absolutely.  I've never thought mine fit me.

Okay, now all the rest of you out there . . . how about YOU copying and posting these same questions on your blog with your answers.  Come on, I double dare ya. 

P.S.  Sorry about the wonky line spacing.  I couldn't get Blogger to print it the way I wanted.  :o(


  1. Thank goodness! I was about to despair vis a vis my lack of blog posts and you saved me! :). Plus I found out some really nifty things about you....

    1. Susan - You go, Girl! Can't wait to read your answers!

  2. I HAVE to resist...still haven't written our Christmas letter!

    1. Michelle - At least you're still planning to write a Christmas letter. I haven't done so in years now. (She confesses as she hangs her head in shame.)

  3. I just love finding out the little things about folks.
    And at least you only had 1 stupid year of smoking. I'm even dumber than I look--I smoked for 31 years. Dumb dumb dumb........
    Can't do the list. I am SO behind. But thank you for doing it. Funny and interesting!

    1. Sue - The important thing is that you quit smoking! And I know that wasn't easy.

  4. We share middle names! Hope you get to visit the east coast. Lots of pretty places to see.

    1. Laurie - "Ann" is probably a fairly common middle name . . . or at least it used to be before folks got so creative!

      My "from afar" love of the East Coast is why I drool so much over your blog pictures.

  5. Oh my gosh, that is a lot of into. I was going to give my answers, but it may take a blog post to do it, ha ha!

    1. Kristina - I'll look forward to it if you do a blog post of the questions and your answers!

  6. Mama Pea,

    I've learned a few things about you. You've intrigued me, I may have a few moments to copy, paste, and complete your post of questions on my blog.

  7. Done mine over on my blog good questions :-)

  8. .....and I found them on Dawns blog and copied them to do on mine, nice quick questions with quick answers

  9. Love it!
    Also protected by Smith and Wesson! :) Too bad I don't know how to cut and paste. I sure can't manage that. I tried really hard the other night again......

  10. These have been fun to read! I've especially been interested in everybody's favorite Christmas movies!

  11. Gosh, so many of you took the time to answer these (sometimes) silly questions. Love the little peek it gave us all into tidbits about ourselves we've not shared in our blog posts. Hmmmm, maybe we need more "tell alls!" Thanks again for entering into the fun. :o}

  12. I did it, too...
