Before the days of DVD's in cars we had this great game called 20 questions that we played on any trip longer than 1/2 an hour. One person thinks of "something" and the other players have to ask yes or no questions until they are able to guess what the "something" is. If they ask 20 questions and still haven't figured it out, the "thinker" wins.
For example....I think of a penguin....
You ask "is it alive?"...yes
"Is it native to the US"...no
I'm sure you all (that is to say, if anyone is reading this other than me) have played some version of it at one time or another. Haven't we all filled out those questionnaires by e-mail or on FB that are supposed to let us "get to know" each other better? I've been thinking about how to introduce myself on this little blog and I thought my own version of 20 questions would be a way to start. Just a few questions that would be interesting to ask someone as you get to know them.
1. One word that YOU think of yourself as?
2. Middle Name and meaning?
Marie...middle name of my grandmother, mother, sister (much to her chagrin), and daughter.
3. Favorite thing to do?
4. What are your family ties?
husband, daughter, son, brother, sister, parents
5. What do you believe in?
A standard of truth that is unchanging whether we want it to exist or not
6. Glass is half full or half empty.
Depends on my mood and there are probably far more days where I think it is half empty than full.
7. Dream home?
A house on the water, in a moderate to cool climate, with lots of windows, and lots of family.
8. What is the mislabel that you have gotten, but hate?
Stuck-up....I just hate talking to new people or people I rarely see...initial conversation is so awkward...so if I can just avoid eye-contact then we don't have to talk, but then I'm stuck-up.
9. Do you have a story that defines you? What is it?
My husband and I met at a church convention when we were 11 and started writing each other. It still amazes us alot of days that our relationship ever existed, let alone got to this point!
Pretty sure by this point you are either bored of me or I'm bored of you so let's just figure that someone has won this game and finish at an even 10 questions...
10. The question around our house is always "How cheap are you?" so thrifty or spendy? What's your best recent deal?
I'm terrible for only buying something if it is on sale. I got my new Cricut machine....which I think I might just go use right now...for $55 at Jo-Ann Fabric's on Saturday....which doesn't man a lot unless you know that it is worth $199! In case you can't tell, question 3 was a real toss-up between reading and scrapbooking.
