You Write the Blog Part Deux

More questions from you:

Melli asked about my favorite summer vacation from my youth. We did mostly educational trips when I was a kid. I don't know if I have a favorite, but my most memorable was my first trip to DC. My grandad went with us, and (I think purposely) lost us in the Smithsonian, and my mom was all worried about finding him. Also, we rode the metro, and the 12-year old (me) knew which line to get on by reading the signs, but the adults had to roll a bum off a bench to ask (confirming that I was right.)

Katherine asked the story of Pooh Bear. Well, he was born in my grandparents' barn, the only black and white cat in a litter of all black cats. I was actually planning to take another kitten from another litter, but as often happens on a farm, the other kitten went missing. So I rescued the Pooh Bear. I could hold him in the palm of my hand when I got him.

She and Hailey (and ok, EVERYBODY) also asked for an update on "the guy": Well, I think things are going well. I've decided not to write about it much, or talk about it much with other people. It seems to make my neurosis about it worse. Let's just say it's great and terrifying all at once. I'll ask him if I can post our picture that we took together this past weekend.

Island girl wonders how I got into blogging. Honestly, I don't remember. I think we had to do a project at work on blogging, and in researching it, I started my own blog. At first, I was in a mad rush to get traffic. Now, it's more therapeutic than anything. However, I'm thinking about taking a blogging break. I don't know.

I want to know if you've been working on your scrapbooks lately.

Also... can you suggest a great movie? :)

I would like you to explain my last post to the blogger world.

I would also like to know how Pooh Bear got his name...

Finally, outside of the guy, what was your most frightening moment in life?

Blogging break is not included in your vocabulary, clear enough???
I love reading your answers, I always wanted to do a thing like this but I am afraid of the questions, lol. You've gotten very nice ones and I love reading about you:)

I'm glad to hear that things are going so well with "the guy" and I hope it continues.

I think your posts have inspired me to have my own You Write the Blog. I'll give you full credit. :D

taking a break because of a lack of material? boredom with it? general blahness?

Anthony said...

OK, I'll help - in my way:

Answer me, these questions three.

1 - You are planning a dinner party and can invite any 5 people of your choosing. Whom do you invite?

2 - After a trip to the grocery store, you find that you have mistakenly purchased Neapolitan ice cream. Which flavor will be the last to go?

3 - You find that Hell is a place where you are forced to watch your least favorite television program for eternity. Which program do you suppose Satan will tune you into?

P.S. Good luck with the guy.

I hope you don't take a blogging break. Most bloggers never come back! I really enjoy hearing about your dating stories!
