Blogger tag!

Happy Halloween everybody! I have a few posts for you that I’ll try to get up there today, but first let’s start with something fun and different: a blogger tag!

Klaudia from Style It With Me! tagged me for this post, which is basically a fun get-to-know-you chain. Here are the rules:

  • Each blogger tagged must post 11 random facts about themselves
  • They must answer the 11 questions posted by the previous blogger
  • They must create 11 new questions to ask their tagged bloggers 
  • They must then tag 11 blogs with less than 200 followers apiece
  • The bloggers must be told
  • No tag backs!

Sounds fun, huh? So let‘s get started! 

11 random facts about me:

  1. I like driving in the car and listening to music. I could just drive around town doing this and not get bored, but gas is too expensive these days!
  2. I like wearing makeup, I just dislike taking it all off. I guess I’m lazy!
  3. I collect penguin stuff at Christmas.
  4. I can read upside-down.
  5. I’d really love to travel to New Zealand, partly because I’m a Lord of the Rings nerd and would love to visit the filming locations!
  6. I’d like to learn to speak Latin!
  7. I love peppermint anything–food, candles, body lotion–so when the holidays come and everything gets a peppermint makeover, I stock up and hoard the items for the next ten months until the peppermint blitz begins anew. I’m currently finishing off last year’s peppermint marshmallows!
  8. Everyone thinks that it must suck to work nights and try to sleep during the day. But I’m scared of the dark and like sleeping with a light on anyway, so I secretly don’t mind! I just pretend it’s a real pain so I don’t have to admit my fear to people.
  9. I’m usually wearing head-to-toe-black or a bright color. I really do like wearing bright colors and prints and buy lots of them, but I’m such a lazy dresser that I gravitate toward the easily coordinated black outfits. Unfortunately, this makes my closet look rather bipolar.
  10. I like my cats more than most people I meet. Animals aren’t judgmental!
  11. I have a huge girl crush on Kate Beckinsale and her hair. Mostly her hair.

Klaudia’s questions for me:

  1. Are you a saver or spender? Both! I try to religiously save part of my paycheck every month. I guess I’m overly cautious about having something for a rainy day. But when I do spend money, I splurge.
  2. Blackberry or iPhone? Neither! I’m still using one of those basic mobiles that only calls and texts–no web access, no contacting the dead.
  3. Favorite magazine? Glamour.
  4. What’s your hobby? Reading!
  5. What do you usually eat for breakfast? A granola bar. I rarely have time to sit down to eat, so this is a nutritious on-the-go solution for me.
  6. What country would you like to visit? I already said New Zealand, but also Italy.
  7. What’s your favorite fruit or vegetable? Strawberries.
  8. Do you prefer writing in pen or pencil? Pen.
  9. What holiday you went on was your favorite? I haven’t been on a “real” vacation in a long time. I did love visiting the Oregon coast with my family in high school. It was a long trip to get there but it was beautiful and lovely.
  10. Facebook or Twitter? Facebook–I’m too longwinded for 140 characters. 
  11. Is your bedroom currently messy or tidy? Tidy–I have company, so the hubby and I cleaned the house really nicely before they arrived! I wish it looked like this all the time.

My questions for you:

  1. If you could spend the day with any celebrity, male or female, living or dead, who would you choose and why?
  2. If you could live inside the world of any book or movie for a day, which would you choose and why?
  3. What is your secret skill?
  4. If you could use just one makeup item for a month straight, which one would you choose?
  5. Which do you prefer: salty snacks or sweet treats?
  6. Do you read the book first and spoil the movie, or watch the movie first and spoil the book? And how much do you really care if the two are different?
  7. What’s your biggest online time-waster? (Mine is Pinterest!)
  8. What is your favorite holiday or special occasion, and what do you do to celebrate it?
  9. What no-fail recipe do you whip up to impress dinner guests?
  10. If you could only wear heels or flats for the rest of the year, which would you pick and why?
  11. If you could time-travel to any period and place in history and spend some time there, when/where would you visit?
