He is also one of the biggest blogging community supporters with a Blog Share page that allows fellow bloggers an opportunity to introduce themselves and be found by his audience.

The Rules

  1. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you.
  2. Share 11 facts about yourself.
  3. Answer the 11 questions the blogger(s) asked you.
  4. Make up to 11 questions and ask them to your nominees
  5. Nominate 11 bloggers and make them happy.

The Facts

  1. I was once run over by an airplane.
  2. I love etymology.
  3. I used to think being 40 was ancient.
  4. I hate brussel sprouts.
  5. I have always wanted to learn to make balloon animals.
  6. I am an avid motorcyclist.

  9. My Netflix membership has lasted longer than my marriage.
  10. I believe love has nothing to do with gender.
  11. I do crossword puzzles in pen.

The Questions

  1. If you could visit any planet or moon, where would you go?
    If it were feasible, I would like to visit Saturn. I can’t even imagine how beautiful the rings would look from the surface.
  2. If you could visit any country today, where would it be?
    I have travelled extensively so prudence would require it be somewhere I haven’t been. I would choose Brazil. I would love to be in Rio for Carnival.
  3. What’s worse, a really hot summer day or a really cold winter day?
    A really cold winter’s day is worse. Makes me want to curl up and not leave the house.
  4. Do you get hangry?
    I would have to say no. My mood doesn’t change missing a meal, but I may become lethargic.
  5. What would you ask to eat for your last meal?
    Anything except brussels sprouts!
  6. Are you the hugging type?
    Definitely a hugger, much to the chagrin of my male friends, some of who do not find it necessarily comfortable.
  7. Do you like being on the water or do you rather dry land?
    Without a doubt, put me on the water.
  8. What makes you nauseous?
    Nothing that I can think of.
  9. What makes you angry?
    When people are inconsiderate or devoid of common courtesy.
  10. What makes you sad?
    The idea that there are people in the world who feel alone or unloved.
  11. What makes you excited?
    Spending time with friends and/or family.

  1. What did you want to be growing up?
  2. If you could have a conversation with one historical figure, who would it be?
  3. Coffee or coffee ice cream?
  4. What do you consider your greatest strength?
  5. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
  6. What culture most intrigues you?
  7. What was your favorite subject in school?
  8. Would you choose longer life or greater wealth?
  9. A genie has appeared, but you only get one wish. What would it be?

  11. What is your dream job?

  1. This has been going around for a while. It’s interesting to learn facts about the readers you follow, but to me, it’s just its own form of ‘chain letter’. Sorry to disappoint you but I won’t be taking part.

  4. Loved it. Hahah. Your facts about you were great.
    You have to tell me though, please expand on the airplane story!

    “I am unable to recall my dreams when I sleep, assuming I have them.” – This is also me.
    “I believe love has nothing to do with gender.” – Ditto
    “I have always wanted to learn to make balloon animals.” – Did you ever make any?

    congrats! I agree, Mat is a very generous fellow blogger. Good thing to know about the brussel sprouts. And I used to have a small repertoire of balloon animals I could make – it was during my “clown at kids’ parties” phase!

    I know this is an old blog post, but I was perusing your blog for some inspiration (hope you don’t mind!) Of all things, Brussels sprouts gave me a great idea and I went with it! Lol. I don’t like them either, by the way. I’m with Mat, I’m dying to hear your airplane story! The balloon animal comment made my stomach hurt with laughter! 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣 Did you ever master another animal? 🤣🤣
