So Many Questions

I’ve been tagged. Thank you, Lynn over at TrippinwithRip!

Apparently, Lynn, wanted to get to know the person behind the troll a bit better since I learned a few things about her last week when she answered the following questions on her blog. So, I grabbed the questions she had on her blog and pasted them below (with a couple of minor changes). Whether you really get to know me much better from these answers, is questionable, but none-the-less it was fun and it gave me a post this morning!

Now, my job is to tag 3 or 4 other bloggers to answer the following questions. Let's see, who would I have the best chances with to actually do this?? Hmmmm.........okay, here goes:

You guys have been tagged:
Delicate Flower@Delicacies
Part-Time Sweats Model
Duncanr@Life With Mrs. D
bschooled@Just Making Convo...

11. What is on the walls of the room you are in? cabinets, built in bookshelves, a tv, artwork, bulletin boards with lots of crap pinned on them, light switches, 2 windows, a plaque that says "never, never, never give up". In fact, I'll give you a photo......

12. Seen anything weird lately? a baby praying mantis on the underside of the door knob to our back door. After letting Simon out to do his business, I walked back to the back door and I noticed something right before I grabbed the doorknob. I looked underneath and clinging to the underside of the knob was a praying mantis. I carefully twisted the knob to go inside to grab my camera, but when I came back he had moved onto the door frame.

Duncanr said...

Bugger !!!

Knew I shouldn't have left that comment about your sloppy housekeeping !

So how does this work?

I give my answers to all the questions above and post my reply where - here? or Madhatters?

P.S. Great pic. Love the way the pattern on your dress blends in with the light/dark elements of the background. And nice to be able to put a face to a name !!!

yorksnbeans said...

See, that's what you get for being a smart *ss!! ;-)

No, really, I'd love to see your answers. Just copy and paste the questions (delete my answers) to your blog (either one) and fill in your own answers. Mention me in yours and tag 3-4 other bloggers.

Have fun!

That Lynn, she's got everyone doing that damn questionnaire ! Hi there Yorks N Beans just doing a drive-by. I see you are from Atlanta, Georgia (one of my favorite places). I have a complete set of drinking jars from Pitty Pat's Porch restaurant blahhahaa.

yorksnbeans said...

Is that place still around?

dave hambidge said...

If the personal photo was taken in yer house, no wonder there be effing large multilegged monsters about...

Joanna Jenkins said...

Great job!
I recently got hooked on MadMen! LOVE that show!

yorksnbeans said...

Well, Dave, they weren't taken IN my house. But they were taken outside my house. And, yes we do have lots of trees!

Ok, first of all, Y&B I have to say that I had no idea a troll doll could clean up so nicely!

And just so you know, I have a feeling we're reading the same book. ("Are you There God? It's me, Margaret" I right?)

I'm not sure if I can complete this mission, Y&B, because a) half of my answers are the same as yours(not 6&7, of course), and b) if I let people know the answers to 9, 11 and 16, I might be arrested...;)

yorksnbeans said...

B...Okay, flattery will get you nowhere and you won't get out of it that easy! ;-)

That would be the second weird thing, if it was that book!! No, it's "The Memory Keeper's Daughter". Are you really reading that? Did Auntie D. suggest it?

Indy609 said...

Lovely photo, Yorks.

yorksnbeans said...

Why, thank you, Indy.

Big Pissy said...

Good job!

Matty said...

YNB, simple honest answers, and you look great.

yorksnbeans said...

Hi All...thanks for the compliments. If you're anything like me, I always like seeing the face behind a voice or writing.

Lynn...I don't know what to call that blue glass piece. It's something I got from my parents house a long time ago. The glass is crackled. I've always liked it. I have two of them.

Thank you Nons...that's very nice of you to say!

Sweats Model said...

Hahahaha! Thanks, YnB! Just posted my answers and tagged 4 more! Hugs!

Anonymous said...

Lovely photo of you!

Which version of Lolita did you watch?

delicate flower said...

Damn! Just spent an hour on a ranting post! Will do this and post tomorrow.. Thanks, YnB looking forward to it!

yorksnbeans said...

NM...the original (I think). With Sue Lyon, James Mason, Shelly Winters and Peter Sellers.

dave hambidge said...

DF's rant is truly worthy of a view, IMHO.

Anonymous said...

I actually did read "The Memory Keepers Daughter"...although to be honest I was actually reading Mirriam Webster when I wrote that...

Fine, but I may need a few days to study....

yorksnbeans said...

Funny, Miriam Webster was my first choice, but I decided to go with a novel.

Great! Take your time, no hurry.

Geonite said...

You're beautiful.

Stop hiding behind the troll.

yorksnbeans said...

OMG! What a compliment to start my day off with! Thank you very much Geo! :-)

yorksnbeans said...

P.S. I'm not really hiding behind the troll, I just don't trust the internet with personal photos on a public site. Every once in awhile is okay, but I wouldn't like it to be out there on a regular basis.
