Questions for the New Year!! 1/1/10: (Thanks to Kate and Kyrsten for their question suggestions! Head on over here, to offer up your great questions, and get linked on a future 5QF!!)
1. If you could bring one character to life from your favorite book, who would it be?
I'd bring Jones from The Noticer to life; with all his wisdom and being at the right place at the right time. He really is an amazing counselor though he talks more than he listens, the people he talks to seem to actually listen and take what he says to heart to better their lives, tricky tricky thing to do.
"One way to define wisdom is the ability to see, into the future, the consequences of your choices in the present."
I want to do a whole post on quotes from that book. Its wonderful!
2. Where did you get your very first kiss?
HA! It was in 9th grade, from my very first boyfriend, in the hall way, on the way to the bus after school. Yep. I wasn't even expecting it.... it was cute, and memorable.
3. How did you welcome in the New Year?
Ben and I went to some friends from high school's house, shot off fireworks, played a ton of corn-hole (I lost a lot more than I won) sat by a fire and had a great time with old friends! We made it all the way to 1am!
This is the ONLY picture of Ben and I on my camera. Have I mentioned that most pictures taken of Ben he looks drunk or asleep? He just can't keep those eyes open to save his life! So he is now refusing to be in them.... and this is what happens.
4. What is your favorite Beatles song?
Don't shoot me....... I really don't love the Beatles. Seriously... BUT - if I had to pick one, I do like Hey Jude and all the nananana's. Its a very happy song to me.
5a. What is the best gift you GAVE this year for Christmas?
According to me or the gift receiver? I think according to the receiver it was this picture in an old/woodsy frame:
I gave it to my mom, although I thought I should have made a copy for my dad too because the minute my mom leaves the house he gets them all up on the couch with him to love them.
In order from left to right: Logan, Lola, Dusty, Sierra, Casino, & Otis the pug, in Ben and I's 1949 Chevy. Anyways, my parents LOVED this picture and want more copies of it.
So there it is, first 5 Question Friday of 2010!!!!
I'm excited to see what God has in store for us this year.
5b. Donuts: Overrated, underrated, or 'bout right?
Donuts = amazing. Especially Dunkin' Donut Chocolate Glazed. I was from New Jersey once upon a time and we didn't have Krispy Kreme there, just amazing Dunkin' Donuts and I don't think anything will ever compare. I've heard through the grapevine we'll finally have one within 50 miles of me soon. Uh oh...
