Libby and Dave at Green Pocket Protector just tagged me in a little thing going ’round called “Mrs Sparkly’s Ten Commandments” or something like that. Thanks guys! I thought I was done for tonight, having just posted, but when I saw this I couldn’t pack it in just yet; it’s too tantalizing to realize that it’s not (quite) just me on my own out here.
Which of my categories does this go in, by the way? Details, details…
The 10 Questions
1. Describe yourself in seven words.
Measured yet impulsive. Straight-foward. Earnest, compassionate, hopeful.
2. What keeps you up at night?
Circuitous thinking, coyotes outside my window, anything important left unfinished.
3. Whom would you like to be?
I can’t imagine not being me or wanting to be me, but if I could get a glimpse of what it’s like to be someone else I might choose either somone wildly creative and prolific (just to see what it’s like) or one of my children (in the vain hope of understanding what makes them tick!).
4. What are you wearing now?
I work from home, but am glad to say that I have real clothes on and not my pyjamas. Grey cardigan, brown corduroy skirt.
5. What scares you?
Wasting my time.
6. What are the best and worst things about blogging?
Best – discovering fellow bloggers like Libby and Dave; creating something I feel good about; creating a record of what we’re doing here (as the brain cells are fading fast now that I’m over 40). Worst – no, I don’t have one for that, at least not today.
7. What was the last website you looked at?
Ha! We build websites for a living, so it was for a client.
8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
I’d make sure I never wasted my time or anyone else’s (see 5 above).
9. Slankets, yes or no?
No, no, no!
10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you.
I’m still getting to know them, but Libby and Dave are funny, inventive, and living in a way that I admire. Plus, they sound like cool geeks, the very best kind.
Tag, you’re it!
Okay, so now I’m supposed to tag another blogger. I’ve got to go in a foodie direction (one of my favourites) and tag Mama’s Gotta Bake. Her tagline is the best, her recipes are gorgeous (tasting and looking), and she’s a mum who bakes, like me. I also want to tag Domaphile and Circle of Friends. Edited to add: I somehow forgot Shambolic Living, and that won’t do!
