I was recently tagged by Mandy, The Complete Cook Book, and given 10 Questions to answer. This is one time where having insomnia pays off. Rather than spend the night grousing about the poor state of overnight broadcast television, I have this assignment to occupy my attention until I’m ready for bed.
So, with Lucy quietly roosting at my side and Max snoring behind me, let’s get started, shall we?
* * *
1. Describe yourself in seven words.
A pasta lovin’, spider hatin’, dependable friend.
2. What keeps you up at night?
3. Who would you like to be?
Me. I learned a long time ago that to be happy in this life one has to be happy in one’s own skin.
4. What are you wearing now?
It’s 4:00 AM. I’m wearing sweat pants and an old shirt. (Quite the picture, eh?)
5. What scares you?
Spiders … spiders … spiders … and spiders.
6. What is the best and worst things of blogging?
Sorry to repeat your answer here, Mandy, but you were right on the money. The best thing about blogging is the people one “meets.” I’ve been showered with kindness, encouragement, and assistance. It really is remarkable and I’m very thankful.
And, like Mandy, I find that blogging is becoming more and more time-consuming.
7. What was the last website you looked at?
I read a review of the Absolutely Fabulous 20th Anniversary Special.
8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
Be a better proof reader. I can re-read my typed comment 5 times and the instant I hit “Post Comment” I’ll notice the error(s). I’ve left typo-ridden comments across all of WordPress and if I’ve not yet left one on your blog, it’s only a matter of time.
9. Slankets, yes or no?
10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you.
Mandy was one of the very first people to look in on, and follow, my blog. Her encouraging words and positive comments meant a great deal to this new-comer to the blogosphere. Visit her blog and you might be rewarded with a tasty suggestion for lunch, a bike tour of her hometown, a restaurant-caliber entrée for dinner, or a passage reprinted from the Woman’s Home Companion Cook Book. And when I say “rewarded” I mean that in the very best sense of the word.
Who are you going to tag to join the quiz?
I hope I’ve not “double-tagged” anyone.
- Tanya, Chica Andaluza
- Marie, My Little Corner of Rhode Island
- “Smidge”, Just A Smidgen

And by the way, just to be clear, spiders scare me.
