  • Include the acceptance rules in your post, so your nominees know what to do.

Questions for me to answer from Eclectic odds n sods.

  1. If you could be a fly on the wall & spy on someone, who would it be and why?  I think I would be on the wall of the production and writing Team of Grey’s Anatomy  to see what new fun things are going to be coming up.  Shonda Rhimes and her team are so good at keeping secrets.
  2. What was your favorite childhood memory, or memories?  Since I talked about living in a log cabin in the northern forests of Lake Superior in Minnesota.  One of the fun memories was having snow tunnel and ice skating rinks in my backyard.  I was pretty young, so I loved the snow.  True story, on Thanksgiving day, there was a knock on our door and my dad answered it and it was actually a black bear trying to get to the ham.  Needless to say he slammed the door shut.  I think they were both surprised.  Lot’s of fun memories from that house.
  3. Who is your best friend and why, what makes them special to you?  My wife, Chris who is a part of this blog and writes 61 Musings blog, is definitely my best friend.  Why because we are so alike and unalike at the same time.  We always push each other to expand further and further and have a lot of fun doing it.
  4. 020414 cffc small (4)What is your favorite item of clothing and why? Please post a picture of it with your answer.  My sweat jackets that zip up.  Keeps my stomach warm when I need it.  I wear it even in the summer time.  Yes, I have more than one.
  5. If you were going to be in a fairytale, which one & who would you be & why?  Honestly, I don’t know.  I  just looked one up.  The Tortoise and Hare.  I’d be the tortoise, since I work at a slow pace and still yet seem to get a lot accomplished.   Plus my qigong teaches it.
  6. Have you ever stolen anything, if yes please expand including how it makes you feel now on telling this tale :-).  I actually did steal a kit-kat candy bar…rather one half of it.  Me and a friend when we were 11 or 12 stole one from a market and split it.  I know laugh at it, but felt guilty for years.
  7. What is your favorite post you have written and why?   On this blog, Green and Black Cardamon Tea.  Chris and I were in an Indian (India) grocery store and found a bunch of cardamon pods and I remembered I used to have tea with so Chris found a recipe to try and it turned out to be a success.  One of my favorite posts on my other blog is Sonel’s Photo-Editing Challenge: Unusual Angles.  The writing came easily for me to explain how I created the image of the leaf.  It seems as if my confidence in my photography sunk in at a deeper level.
  8. What do you hope to achieve in the next year?  Regain more of my health and learn more qigong.  See my Lyme Disease story.
  9. If re-incarnation definitely existed and you had a choice of coming back as a human or animal, which one would you chose and why?  I tease about coming back as one of our pets…but I would have to be human again.  It’s just way too fun.
  10. What do you think of my questions?  I thought they were great!!!!
