20 Things You Might Not Know About Me

My book blog shero, Jamie at Books and Beverages, posted this fun exercise – post 20 things you might not know about me, and then ask fellow bloggers to do the same:

Question 1: How tall are you?
Feels like Lilliputian height – 5’5″

Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?
It’s so hidden so well that I don’t even know what to look for or where to find it. Let me know if you do.

Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
I’m spanking brand new in the world of blogging, so I have much to learn before I can identify any pet peeves.

Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?
My biggest pet peeve is not receiving follow-up from job interviewers. It’s okay to let me know if you don’t intend on hiring me. I won’t trip out or anything. Just please give me the courtesy of a response one way or the other.

Question 5: What’s your favorite song?
What a Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong

Question 6: What’s your favorite Etsy shop that isn’t yours?
The African Shop has amazing custom-made clothes. I can only admire them for now, but I’m looking forward to the day when I can place like a jillion orders. LOL

Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?
Pretty much the same things when I’m not alone – reading and listening to music.

Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food?
Give me a mix of savory and sweet and you may have a friend for life. Extra bonus points for anything that consists of salted caramel mocha.

Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?King Derby
Yes, Derby, the sweetest and the most mischievous cat to ever grace the world with his presence. My husband and I also take care of a stray cat whom we’ve named Beaux. He hangs out in my husband’s truck. He’s no longer afraid of us, but still doesn’t seem like he wants to come inside.

Question 10: What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?
Nonfiction – The Autobiography of Malcolm X by Alex Haley
Fiction – Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product?
Clinique’s 3-step skin care system keeps me looking like I bath in the fountain-of-youth.

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
Deuce Dat
At a costume party, I was on the dance floor having the time of my life when I had a wardrobe malfunction – part of my costume (my shorts) literally slid off of me and hit the floor. Fortunately I was also wearing tights and a longer top so nothing was really exposed, but it was embarrassing and incredibly funny.

Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
The Trio

Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?
National Lampoon’s Vacation – one of the best movies ever made.

Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?
Hmm…really, none of the above.

Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
Right where I am – New Orleans!

Question 17: PC or Mac?
PC

Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?
My husband surprised me with flowers on a random day.

Question 19: Favorite celebrity?
I don’t really have one.

Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want be best friends with? 
Awesomely Luvvie

  1. Oh my goodness, this was great! That etsy shop is fantastic – I love the colors and designs!

    Derby is the cutest! What a sweet boy!

    Random commentary slightly related to Malcolm X (I read it in college and thought it was really interesting too!): I LOVE DENZEL WASHINGTON. I watched the movie first because he was in it. That’s all. 🙂

    Really enjoyed reading this 🙂
