Here are my responses to her questions.

1. What was your favorite children’s program when you were growing up?

Romper Room

2. Who was your first crush? My babysitter’s brother who was 17 and I was about 8 or 9 years old. Then I loved Starsky from the Starsky and Hutch tv show, when I was 11.

3. What is your oddest fear/phobia?

The fear that if I set something down it will disappear. Also I am phobic of leaving the house.

4. What is your favorite smell and why?

I love the smell of peach. I love peach hot tea, peach wine coolers and fresh peaches. The smell is calming to me.

5. Do you prefer sweet or savoury snacks?

I like Veggie Straws, Cheddar cheese and Italian Herb crackers and Cherry tomatoes for a snack. I like potato chips also

6. How did you spend your 21st birthday?

That was a very long time ago and I have no idea. When I was 18 the drinking age in Maryland was about to change to 21.

I was one of the very last people to fall under the old laws. So I assume that 21 is memorable to younger people because they became of age to drink but in my case I could buy alcohol at 18.

After the law was changed anyone that was able to buy it at 18 before the law passed could still buy it. So some of my friends that were two months older than me had to wait for 3 more years while I could buy it the whole time.

It was not that big of a deal to me though. I very rarely drank alcohol . I did buy some on my 18th birthday just to see if I could buy it.

7. what was your first job?

Hardees Fast Food  cashier

8. Who is your favorite author?

Edgar Allen Poe

9. What song(s) do you sing on a karaoke night out?

I have never done the Karaoke thing but I have played out at bars and restaurants. Here are some covers that I have played.

10. Do you like Christmas?

11. Whats the best piece of advice your mum/dad gave you?


Here are my questions for them. In fact I will answer them along with you. Pick and choose the ones you want to respond to. Write the work “Pass” or “Skip” on the ones that you do not choose.

  1. Does your perception of reality stay relatively stable or does it seem different to you at different times?
  2. What do you think the cause of phobias is?
  3. Do you alter the facts to fit your faith or alter your faith to fit the facts?
  4. Have you ever had a cyber stalker or harassment from someone on wordpress or another blog or social media site?
  5. If someone asks you to do something you really do not want to do…Do you tend to respond with a no without giving reasons. or say no and also give your reasons for no?
  6. Do you like interacting with different kinds of people depending on your mood / state of mind …or choose the same people no matter what your mood or state is?
  7. Do you choose the kinds of blogs you read based on your mood, state of mind or how you are feeling? Or do you read the same kinds of blogs without a difference due to your state?
  8. Do you notice that I have tried to come up with original questions? Can you guess my reasons for doing that based on what you know about me?
  9. If you and I were entering a classroom with 30 people in it, where do you think I would choose to sit, based on what you know about me……the front , the back, smack dab in the middle of the room, on the farthest side away from the door or nearest to the door?
