If you were to put your ear up next to my ear, I swear you would hear crickets chirping. My head is empty. Empty. A wasteland of unbloggable nothing-ness. So I was mightily relieved when Catez came to the rescue with a meme--and one she wrote herself, to boot. So here we go.
What do you like most about where you live?
The people. I have never lived in a place where the people are as friendly as Oklahoma, USA. Strangers are kind, and the friends are even better.
Is there anything strange about where you live?
The wind. Oh, the wind. (Sing it with me)...
Where the wind comes sweepin' down the plains
And makes it impossible to have neat hair and painful to wear contacts
And can turn your lawn chair into a missile
And pull your baby's stroller right out of your hands...
Another unusual thing is that my city is considered a international hub of the charismatic movement, and it really permeates the culture around here. As in, it wouldn't be all that unusual for someone in the produce section to give you "a word from the Lord".
What's one of your all-time favourite music albums and why? (I'm keeping Catez's sophisticated New Zealand spelling of "favourite" to inject a little culture around here).
If I had to nail down just one, I guess I'd say Billy Joel's Greatest Hits. And the why is because...well, because he's Billy Joel.
Some other good albums I have enjoyed in my lifetime are
- True Blue by Madonna (y'all give me a break--it was 1986)
- Beauty and Beast (remember this TV show?) This is a gorgeous album.
- John Mellencamp's Greatest Hits
- Ultimate Manilow (of course)
- Showstoppers by Manilow (another really great Manilow album)
- No Fences by Garth Brooks (I'm not a huge country music fan, but really, this is a great album)
Did you have a passion for something as a kid that you still have now? (If not - what is one of your passions now?)
I've always had a passion for a really good story, whether it's reading it, watching it in a movie, or hearing someone tell it to me.
What do you like most about having a blog?
Honestly? I'm feeling a little burnt-out on the blog front these days, so this is a good question for me to answer. I suppose what I like the most is just the daily writing. I can tell a difference in how my brain is working, now that I have a reason to sit down and write every single day.
Also, of course, I really enjoy the friends I've made in Bloggityville.
I don't think I'll tag anyone, but if you want to do it, just leave a note in the comments section.
