Twenty Questions

I got this from Laura @ Under The Sheets - Shhh  It looked like fun, so I thought I'd do it too!

The twenty question link back

I love getting to know my blogging friends better. So I'm reaching out to you with twenty questions that I hope you will answer on your blog. Post these questions and your answers on your blog, link back to me and comment back to me when you’re done. I promise to link to your post.

1) Dressing up or casual?
I'm a casual kind of gal.

2) Most original Halloween costume?
Ugh! I HATE dressing up in costume!

3) What would your talent be if you were participating in a beauty pageant?
I can crack my jaw!

4) What do the words retro boutique design mean to you?
30s 40s style. Sleek satin gowns for the 30s and cute 2 piece swim suits for the 40s.

5) What do you see as your greatest achievement?
Having my 3 kids and surviving my divorce.

6) What household chore pacifies you?
I hate doing chores but I'm happy when they're done.

7) Favorite type of weather?
I love the cool crispness of fall.  I've come to appreciate summer over winter.

8) Do you sleep with the sheets tucked in or out?
I like the sheets tucked out. I feel trapped if the sheets are to tight around me.

9) Do you have freckles?
Yes, Ma'am, I do.

10) Favorite kind of sandwich?
Turkey with coleslaw, Thousand Island dressing, Swiss cheese on grilled rye.

11) Can you hold your breath without holding your nose?
Yup, I can!

12) What’s your name spelt backwards?
Naoj. weird, huh?

13) What message is on your voicemail machine?
Haha! I have to listen to it first! hold on.... Hi! You've reached Joan's cell phone. I can't take your call right now, but if you leave your name and number, I'll get back to you as soon as I can! Bye!

14) What was the name of your first pet?
Lizzie. She (we think it was a she) was a parakeet who escaped when her cage fell over when the door opened and she flew away!

15) Do you believe in karma?
Yes, I do.  I do not want it to bite me in the ass, so I try not to mess with it.

16) Do you believe in luck?

17) Do you have a nickname?

18) Are you a shopping addict?
Not since I got divorced and lost that perk.

19) Favorite superhero?
I don't think I have one!

20) Chocolate or vanilla?
Ok now its your turn to enter the twenty question link back,  and I am looking forward to reading your answers. Go on, I know you can do it. All the cool kids are...

hey vanilla girl - I bet you like white cake. I do eat some chocolate but between the those two, I would go vanilla. The problem with these things are the questions like that one. It would be better to offer more choice or open up the answer some. What's your favorite ice cream favor? A - rum raisin.
I like Q's 4 and 5. Good answers.
How long before punk is retro?

I like milk chocolate but not dark chocolate at all! German chocolate cake is good.

My favorite ice cream flavors (I have several) are all Breyers brand, Cherry Vanilla, Butter Almond and Fudge Ripple.

I sure hope punk NEVER comes back into style for any reason whatsoever!

Are there people who can't hold their breath without holding their nose????

Turkey and coleslaw? Never really been big on coleslaw, but maybe I just haven't had the right kind yet.

Debbie said...

Now that's a coincidence. Out of all the blogs on my reader, I just left Laura's!
Love your answers. But, I think I'll pass on hearing you crack your jaw:)

I wanna be a cool kid but I'm too lazy right now. Love the post.

Joanna Jenkins said...

I'll share a sandwich with you anytime. Or maybe we can both enjoy our own ;-)

Great answers Joanie.
