I have decided to split my answers up into three portions. Half today, half tomorrow, and one lucky questioneer (Yes, questionEER...questioner is kinda boring) will dominate Friday!
Okay, here I go.
BugginWord said... What is the evolutionary basis for toe nails? Why do we still have them? Also do you have a favorite flavor of gatorade?
I think they were used originally made for scratching one's feet. Which is good that they are still around because my feet itch all the time! And luckily now we have cool things like pedicures so they can look pretty and be functional all at the same time! My favorite Gatorade flavor is strawberry/lime. Though it was pretty hard to decide between that one and the Lime Rain flavor. That one is super yummy too!
Jody Hedlund said... Oh, Marybeth, let's see! I do feel like I've gotten to know you over the past year of blogging and now through Twitter. So YOU tell me something you think I don't know!!
Jody, Jody, Jody...this wasn't very nice! Now I have to sit and think ............ Okay I got it. The first book I ever read (on my own) was Hop on Pop! BUT my favorite Dr. Seuss book is There's a Wocket in my Pocket.
T. Anne said... What exactly happened to your files and pictures?
Well we were able to recover most of our pictures. At least everything more than a year old. So I lost a TON from this past year :( Luckily I had uploaded most of them to Picassa and Facebook. *wipes brow* As for our files, we lost all our music files, recovered all our movies, lost all my MS word docs (INCLUDING all my Manuscripts) and recovered some of our older Excel files. I was never so grateful that I have forced many people to read my MS as I have progressed because I was able to find most of my emails and replace a good deal of my progression. However I lost half of one MS and a short story (that was very dear to me) and I think three new MS ideas. Needless to say, it was a bad weekend. But I'm thankful I recovered what I did!
Jonathon Arntson said... Maybe a bit too personal, but how do you manage to be super cool and get away with using the word bum, but live in Lansing, Michigan. Now, Lansing is way cooler than the part of MI I live in, but it's still MI, right? So tell me your secret!
Well Jonathan, until now I didn't realize I was super cool! Now I'm all blushing... As for the word bum, I love it. Especially when paired with the word monkey. Bum Monkey is a fairly epic pair of words and should be used in a sentence at least two times a day. And what can I say about MI...yeah pretty much nothing. EXCEPT that we have lots of water! WHOO HOO!
ajm said... I agree with Jonathon above. As a fellow Michigander, I wonder the same. So my question is, if you could reside anywhere in the world, where would it be? My second question though is much more important. Do you know how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop?
If I could live elsewhere it would be a toss up between Seattle, WA and Raleigh, NC ... Both are beautiful cities! As for the Tootsie Pop ... my guestimate is 1,211,454 licks. But I wouldn't know really cuz I don't really eat that kind of candy. I prefer the sour stuff!
Frankie Diane Mallis said... What sorts of things put the #windinyourhaaaaaaaiiiiiiiir?
Standing by the ocean (though I've never actually done that!), swinging, running, playing tennis, frolicking in a meadow (never done that one either...) and thunderstorms!
Foursons said... Besides me of course- who is your favorite blogger? What is your guilty pleasure? What is the one thing you don't have but really wish you did...material possession and nonmaterial possession?
I can't say that I actually have a 'favorite blogger'. (I know, I'm lame) But I do have some favorite blogs that make me laugh like Cake Wrecks and Passive Aggressive Notes. As for out of my blogging friends I visit so many blogs when I get a chance to read them I couldn't choose between them if I tried! I love everyone!!! Guilty pleasure...hmmmm..... This is a 3 part question really! (Or at least it has three answers) 1. Food!!! Seriously, just ask my husband. If I'm hungry I can think of nothing else than what I am going to eat. My one track mind revolves around food when my belly is empty! 2. Margaritas - Specifically the Applebee's Perfect Margarita. It's heaven in my mouth! I don't drink often, but when this little puppy is in front of me I am incapable of saying no! 3. Karaoke ... and no, I do not feel the need to explain myself!
As for things I REALLY want...
Material Possession - (This one is hard now that I have my Genevieve tiny laptop) I would LOVE to have a new house. A really pretty one. And when I say new I mean built new in a Victorian style. I'm tired of old houses and apartments.
Non-Material Possession - Okay, well as embarrassing as this is, I wish I had good credit. My husband lost his job a couple years ago, thus we lost our house. And I MISS having decent credit to be able to get a new house or a new car.
Well now that I have embarrassed myself and answered some of life's most challenging questions - such as how many licks does it take to get to the middle of a Tootsie Roll Pop and how do I remain so cool - I will leave you waiting for the rest of my answers till tomorrow!
Now you tell ME ... what don't I know about you???
