Leap Frog meme

Posted by Charlene // Tags: ,
I was tagged by Picture Me Reading for this meme!

The rules are as follows:
  • Post the rules.
  • Answer the questions set for you in the tagger’s post.
  • Choose 10[ish] people to “tag” and notify them.
  • Create 10[ish] questions for them to answer or use the same ones set for you.

1.  What is the meaning of life?


42!!  And living a life that you can be proud of and pursue happiness and treat people with respect... something like that.

2.  What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?


African or European?

3. What  made you start blogging? What keeps you blogging?


I think I was taken by the idea of having my little corner of the 'net to talk books and having a place to have all my reviews gathered together.  I have tried keeping a book journal, but I was terrible at it.  I think writing longhand is too slow for me, therefore I became too lazy to keep at it.  I keep blogging because of all the wonderful people I have met and great books I've become aware of through blogging.

4.  If you could travel back in time in the Tardis, where would you go and who would you see?


Oh my goodness, the places I could go!! I might have a hard time just leaving, trying to decide where to go.  So it's a good thing I can think about it now... I need to be prepared!  I think, since Jane Eyre is my favorite book of all time, it would be interesting to go and see the very first theater production of the story.  I think from Charlotte Brontë's thoughts in a letter she wrote, it would be very bad, but it would be really cool to see the first adaptation and also be in the audience of a Victorian theater!  

5. What is your favorite book and why?


Jane Eyre!!!  I think it just suits my taste in books- romance, mystery and suspense all wrapped up in one.  But also it has complex characters, an inspiring message and depth and beautiful prose.  

6.Contact a couple or more close friends and family ask them, How would you describe me? Post their answers for this question.


Hmm, people are sleeping, so I'll just use my Myers-Briggs Type Indicator - ISTJ (Introverted, Sensing, Thinking, Judging) so traditional, faithful, logical, organized sensible - some of the descriptive words used on wikipedia for that personality type.

7.What surprised you most about the responses you got in Question 5? Do you agree with their assessment of you?


Actually I think it fits rather well!

8.When you wake up in the morning, what is the thing you are most looking forward to doing that day?


Reading!  Though for various days, I look forward to certain TV shows.  At the moment I'm obsessed with Gordon Ramsay anything- Hell's Kitchen, Masterchef, probably that new hotel show that is debuting soon.  And True Blood!

9. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you travel and what book would you bring with you?


Well I'm hoping I can travel in first class for this- but I would like to visit Australia.  I just am not looking forward to the long flight! And of course I would bring my favorite book (refer above).

10. If you actually were in the Hunger Games what skill do you have that would allow you to survive?


Well, sadly I don't have any skills that would help me!  I think the best thing to do would be to avoid the others while they kill each other off.  So I would really have to work at being stealthy and quiet.

Well, now I am supposed to tag 10 more people, but I have such a hard time with these things,  I don't want to tag anyone who has already done it.  So if you would like to do this feel free, and I think Picture Me Reading has some awesome questions, they should be re-used!

    1. I loved the questions that only nerds would get! :D And you guys like Gordon too!! I always used to enjoy his shows when I happened across it, but this year, I started needing to keep up with every episode, no idea why. Maybe there is some inner cook in me needing to get out (unlikely).
