Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Tuesday, February 28, 2012



Before you freak out, I am not going to be offended in any way if you don't participate. I've been tagged a few times and not responded.  I just thought I'd try to ask funny questions.

The Rules Are:
1. You must post the rules.
2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you've tagged.
4. Tag eleven bloggers, however, you can break the rules and tag fewer people if you want. Make sure you hyperlink their names/blogs.
5. Let them know you've tagged them!
6. Have fun! 

Questions Curmudgeon asked.
1. Why is your favorite color your favorite?
Yellow looks like sunshine, and sunshine makes me happy.

2. Do you prefer dogs or cats or do you just hate animals, and want to kill baby seals?
I am a cat person.  Dogs are great pets.  Cats are people.

3. How much time do you spend on the computer?
4 to 5 hours a day.  I'm retired!

4. Not including porn, what do you do on the computer?
Pffft!  I write my books and check in with my blog buddies and keep up with the e-mail.  And I follow Girl Genius.

5. Are you a clock watcher?  Bonus question: Other than me, who would ask such a question?
Any prospective employer is likely to ask that question.  I'm not a clock watcher.  I've got one built in.  Unless I'mreally in the creative zone when time become irrelevant.

6. What do you look for in a partner? Don't say sense of humor, It only lasts while you're dating. 
I need a partner who is cheerful in the morning.  My first husband threatened to smack me with a rolled-up newspaper because I was so damn chipper in the morning.  The husband I have now,while not a morning person, none-the-less manages to be pleasant before 8:30 AM.  I adore him!

7. What type of clothing do you prefer? Grunge, conservative, flamboyant, none, Village People, or however you want to answer. I personally like to dress like Flash Gordon.
I tend to be a dramatic dresser.  Everything you put on says something about you.  I like my clothes to say, "Here I AM!"

8. What is your favorite type of music? Don't give me that "I like all music." crap.
I like soft jazz and bluegrass.  Rap is not music, though I concede that it is poetry.  Heavy metal kinks my nerves.

9. Do you believe in the paranormal, Ghosts, ESP, levitation, spoon bending? No Zombies! How many fingers am I holding up?
Paranormal?  Yes.  Ghosts?  Yes.  ESP? Hell yes.  Levitation?  In my wildest dreams.  Spoon bending? I've been doing that in the garbage disposal for years.

10. The most important question: Do you have a inie or outie belly button? Like those are words.
Before I was pregnant, it was an inie.  This is one of those changes they don't warn you about.

11. What kind of car do you drive. Just to avoid embarrassment I drive a 93 ford F150. If you drive a Mercedes or something don't answer, or lie, because the rest of us will hate you. 
I drive a 2001 Ford Taurus.  Before that, I drove a Honda Civic for twelve years.  I just HATE car shopping!

OK, now I come up with questions and tag people.

1.Hot buttered toast or a Danish?

2. Those little tubs of jelly they offer at Denny's - what's your favorite?

3.What modern convenience would you most hate to lose?

4.What do you want for your birthday?

5.What is Kierkegaard's view on transubstantiation?

6.Given enough whiskey, would you eat haggis?

7. Maracas or tambourine?

8.  Superheros - who would you want for a roommate?

9. Why?

10.Favorite author?  (After me, of course.)

11.Where were you born?

I'm not going to tag anyone.  Go ahead an answer any questions that strike you in the comments.

    I love Girl Genius!!! The Foglios are brilliant at thei comic and I hope Johnny Saturn grows up to have their # of readers.

    Okay, answers to questions:

    1.Hot buttered toast or a Danish?
    Hot buttered toast - with honey.

    2. Those little tubs of jelly they offer at Denny's - what's your favorite?
    Apple Butter - Yum!!!

    3.What modern convenience would you most hate to lose?
    Oh, goodness - anything to do with electricity, but if I have to be specific, I'd have to say A/C. Here in central Indiana, you have to have A/C.

    4.What do you want for your birthday?
    My credit cards paid off.

    5.What is Kierkegaard's view on transubstantiation?

    6.Given enough whiskey, would you eat haggis?
    Nope! No Way! Uh-uh!

    7. Maracas or tambourine?
    Tombourine - I always wanted one of those - I had bongos instead.

    8. Superheros - who would you want for a roommate?

    9. Why? If I'm late, he can "gate" me to where I need to be.

    10.Favorite author? (After me, of course.) It used to be L.M. Montgomery, but now I have to say Agatha Christie.

    11.Where were you born? In a hospital.

  • At 9:44 AM , Blogger Lyssa said... favorite color and my favorite author are prone to frequent changes. Right now I'm liking the color of rusty iron, especially on old farm tools, and Garth Nix.

    Given enough whiskey, I will sing and drink just about anything, including Hank Williams and century eggs, so haggis is fair game.

    For my birthday? A knit tea party train substantiated by you. Tambourines? They ARE the devil. I teach elementary music. I have done my research.

    Hot buttered toast, marmalade, never eat yucky stuff, Yanni music, can't remember the other questions, I love yellow for clarity of thought and blue for calmness, would miss my IPhone terribly. Alcohol makes me sick and not worth it to me. Tambourine. Evanovich makes laugh. "Transubstantiation" is really just another mind game name for we are one, nothing is ever not-one. I am a true native of Los Angeles. For my birthday I want to go on a cruise.

    Born in Camden, NJ (which I understand was a considerably nicer place back then)
    Haggis? Not enough alcohol/drugs in the world
    Danish? Yep, if it's lemon
    My birthday? A Tardis cover for my iphone
    Kirkegaard? I hear he was uncertain. No wait. That was Heisenberg. What was the question again?

    And you ARE my favorite author! Your characters are real and authentic to themselves and I am always left wanting more.

    1) Bear claw
    2) Blackberry
    3) Medicine
    4) Not to do the dishes

    6) No, because I like crisp foods, not boiled
    7) Neither, I have a massive headache
    8) Batman
    9) Cool gadets and $$
    10) Reading? Who has time to read anymore?
    11) Germany - made getting those clearances a bit more challenging.

    I liked the tambourine because in the 60's everyone who couldn't play an instrument could still be in a band.
