1) In this song, our hero offers to take his girl down to the river to catch a catfish dinner. What is your favorite seafood? I love crabmeat, shrimp is a close second—and I’ve never tasted lobster, but I bet I’d like it!

 2) Luke Bryan went to Georgia State University, home of the Panthers. What was your school mascot? For high school, I was a Huskie. (“We are the Huskies! The mighty, mighty Huskies! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!”) In college, I was a Redbird.

3) Have you ever tried acupuncture? No—but I wouldn’t be against trying it if I thought it would help with a condition.

4) Just last night, Crazy Sam threw away a jar of Miracle Whip because it expired in September 2013. Is your refrigerator neat and organized? Or is it a disaster area, like Sam’s? My fridge is pretty organized—I don’t have any containers of mystery substances lurking around. My freezer, on the other hand, is so crammed full that I’m not even sure what’s in there anymore. Maybe I’ll do some freezer cleaning this afternoon!

5) Which is more important to you — saving time or saving money? Wow—this is a toss up depending on my mood. I’m usually really budget conscious and I’ll go without certain things if I just don’t feel like spending the money. On the other hand, if I can throw some money at a problem rather than dealing with it myself, I can be OK with that too. It really depends on my frame of mind at any given time. I feel very fortunate that I have the freedom to make choices like these.

6) Sam’s next door neighbor is named Jim. He’s retired, smokes a pipe and drives a red Corolla. Tell us about one of your neighbors. The house on one side of mine is vacant right now. On the other side—they keep to themselves pretty much and I’m not really sure what’s going on over there these days. I know there is a husband/wife and two early grade-school aged kids. The kids will sometimes make these great chalk drawings on my driveway. Periodically the parents of the husband stay for extended periods—and they’ve recently acquired two dogs. Their house is roughly the same size as mine—I have no idea where all of these people and animals are fitting.

7) What’s the most recent magazine you flipped through? Smithsonian—I love that magazine! There are always so many articles of interest, and they’re always timeless. I can pick up an issue from five years ago and it won’t seem outdated. I just read an article in a recent Smithsonian about how bomb-sniffing dogs are trained–fascinating!

8)  Could your vehicle use a trip to the car wash right now? Surprisingly, my car looks OK because it rained all day yesterday. I do need to get it washed soon though to get rid of all the salt that I’m sure is caked on underneath.

9) Did you hit the snooze button this morning? Nope—On Saturdays I usually don’t set the alarm, but I’m awake and (usually!) up by 7am anyway.

I love books, reading, writing, cooking, eating, reading while eating, and sharing thoughts about all of the above–plus a bit more! I usually post about topics relating to books and literacy during the week, and then participate in a variety of non-bookish memes on the weekend. Please feel free to join in! Some random things about me– –I have multiple bookshelves in every room of my home except the bathroom. They’re all filled to bursting. They help to make my house my home. –I have two cats who I love dearly, but who I definitely do NOT dress in human clothing. Ever. –I’ve never had a cavity. –I make a mean spaghetti sauce. –I’m a newcomer to yoga and I love it. –My day is not complete without a little chocolate.

  1. Loved your answer about your neighbors because I have had the same questions about mine. The condo across the hall/kitty-korner has one bedroom. And yet a few summers ago the couple who lives there took in her teenaged grandson because he was at risk from the gangs in the neighborhood where he lived with his mom. Laudable, to be sure. BUT I know that apt. only has one big closet and a linen closet. We have no storage units. WHERE WERE THEY KEEPING ALL THEIR STUFF? I was fixated.

    • I know–people live such interesting lives and make such interesting choices–I guess that’s why I always feel like I’m writing a story in my head. There’s always plenty of material if you just pay attention!

  2. I remember Smithsonian, my dad use to subscribe to it an National Geographic. I use to love looking thru both of them.

  3. I’m really lucky that I love all my neighbors now. I’ve had some bad neighbor experiences in this apartment house.

  4. Lobster is really good but it must be cooked properly. Sometimes restaurants overcook it and it seems a little rubbery. You should try some!

  5. I’d get pretty mad if someone call me the “huskies” 🙂

  6. Smithsonian sounds very much up my alley. I love National Geographic for the same reasons.

    • The only down side is I tend to hang on to Smithsonians forever for just that reason–because they’re never dated–and then I find myself swimming in them!

      • I’m terrible about not tossing magazines if they have inspiring images. I used to have stacks of National Geographics.

  7. Hmm, I have never heard of the Smithsonian, but it sounds like something I would be interested in. I would love to know how they train bomb-sniffing dogs!

    Also, I think you would really like lobster. It has the same texture as shrimp, but a very distinct taste. Quite yummy!
