Tagged!

Medeia and Trisha tagged me. Here are my answers:
Do you think you're hot?
Nope, mostly I just feel old.


Upload a picture or wallpaper you are using at the moment.

This is a picture from our October 2010 family trip to Florida.



When was the last time you ate chicken meat?
Last Thursday I had homemade cashew chicken.


The song(s) you listened to most recently?
Teenage Dream by Katy Perry - not by choice, but because I was riding in the car with my teenaged daughter.


What were you thinking as you were doing this?
My spring allergies have officially kicked in for this year (as I sneeze yet again!)


Do you have nicknames?
My husband calls me Suzy. My mother and some of my aunts used to call me Sue Ellen. When I was a kid, my siblings and I had matching nicknames - Mary was Mud, Carrie was Cud, Judy was Jud, I was Sud, and Ed was Ud. We still use those sometimes.


Tag 8 blogger friends (you are it!)
1. Kelly Polark
8. Hema


Who's listed as number 1?
Kelly Polark. Kelly's Dear Diary posts, real entries from her childhood diary, are among my all-time favorite blog posts.

Say something about number 5.
Old Kitty's comments on my blog ALWAYS make me smile. :)

How did you get to know number 3?
Jackee was my first follower that I didn't know before I began my blog. A few months later, when I wanted to link my blog to my Facebook page, I emailed Jackee and she explained it to me. We've since become crit partners and great friends!


How about number 4?
I met Brian through Sharon (#2) She said she knew a cat with his own blog. I had to check that out, and now I love my visits to Brian's blog!

Leave a message for number 6.
Congratulations again on finding your agent - yay!


Leave a lovey dovey message for number 2.
Sharon, you're one of the nicest people I've ever met - thanks for being such an amazing friend!


Do number 7 and number 8 have any similarities?
I met both Dawn and Hema when we participated in a Skype seminar with agent Mark McVeigh.

This was fun! How about you? Do you have any nicknames?


Have a great week, everyone!

Yay for being tagged!!!

Awww hello Sud!!! LOL!!! My nickname from my bad older siblings was "ogre"! Only because I didn't know what it meant except that it sounded so ugly so my siblings would tease me with it relentlessly! But not to worry, these days I get my revenge by reminding them of how much younger I am compared to them..! LOL!!!

Awww thank you for mentioning me too and for your kind words, btw!! Aww shucks, I blush!!!
:-)
Take care
