Grown Up Tag

I can't say that I enjoyed playing tag as a child (too chunky to run, lol), but this grown-up version is a lot of fun.  Amy (of One Artsy Mama fame) tagged me to play along, so I'm going to give it a shot.  First, how about some rules.

**You must post the rules.
** Answer the 11 questions that the tagger posted for you & then create 11 questions to ask the people you've tagged.
** Tag 11 people and link them in your post.
**Let them know you have tagged them.

Here are Amy's questions:

1. If you could have coffee with any one person, living or not, who would it be?

My husband and I have a running list of people on this list and it changes all the time. Right now, I would choose Jason Crandell.  He is a yogi who has done yoga practise routines for The Yoga Journal.  He gives off a presence of compassion and composure, and possesses the most peaceful soul.

2. What is one quality you'd like to develop in yourself?

Composure.  I react too quickly and instinctively to situations instead of thinking about what I really want to say or do.  I have a quick sense of humour and many times I wish that I would have kept my 'hilarious' comment to myself.

3. What talent do you wish you had?

I wish I could sing well.  I think that it would feel awesome to really belt out a song and have it be on key. In reality, I can get away with a 'happy birthday' but not much more, lol.

4. If you won the lottery {mega-millions}, what would you do with the money?

Well, I would want to make sure that my family and close friends were all set, for starters.  After that, I would want to establish a rescue network for dogs and cats in Canada, scooping up strays and creating a nation-wide spay and neuter program.  I'm a big sucker for a stray.  :)

Toronto Animal Services

5. Which superpower would you choose: the ability to fly, the ability to read minds, or x-ray vision, and why?

I would NOT want to be able to read minds,....who knows what you might find in the minds of other people.  Could be scary.  And I would NOT want x-ray vision because really, the only way I look good is if I'm wearing clothing.  I imagine that other people are the same.  So that leaves flying which doesn't seem to have a huge downside.

6. Share a nickname you have and how you got it.

My step-dad calls me Tanny because as a child my cousins would taunt me with a sing-song, "Terry-Tan, the garbage man." (My name is Terry-Ann in case that doesn't make sense).   Yeah, nice huh.

7. If you could close your eyes right now and be anywhere in the world, where would you choose?

Oooh,...anywhere?  How about at game 7 in the Stanley Cup playoffs with the Boston Bruins winning the cup in the final minutes?  Okay, not likely, so how about in Tuscany sipping wine and eating bread and cheeses while tanned young bucks do manual labour of some sort.  Yeah, that will do.  :)

Physic Tourism

8. What is your favorite season and why?

Mmmm,..I love fall.  Summer is too hot, winter is too cold, spring is too messy, fall is just right.  There are fun things to do like pumpkin patch.  The weather is often perfect, not too cold, not too hot.  I love switching over to comfort foods:  soups and stews and roasts.  The fast pace of summer starts to slow down.  And the colour,....oh yeah.

9. If you could only eat one dessert for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Creme brulee.  No thought required.

Cooking for Engineers

10. Which sense would be the hardest for you to lose: sight, hearing, taste, or smell?  Why?

I think sight would be the most difficult.  All of the things that I enjoy (blogging, crafting, reading, photography) require vision and I'm not sure what life would be like without those things.

11. If you could relive one moment or day in your life, what would it be and why?

I would want to relive the night that my (then) boyfriend and I went to see Phantom of the Opera.  He was a charming fellow and I was an unsophisticated (and nervous)  gal who had not had any exposure to theatre, but that night was absolute magic. (yes, I did marry that charming fellow a few years later). 


Now that was actually the fairly easy part.  The hard part is coming up with 11 questions and narrowing down my tags to 11 people.  

Here are the questions:

1.  How did you decide to start blogging?

2.  What would be your dream job?

3.  What is your favourite movie or book?

4.  Favourite food?

5.  If you had an entire afternoon free, who would you want to spend it with and doing what?

6.  What is the most significant goal you have achieved to date?

7.  What is your dream vacation?

8.  When you go to weddings, do you dance or sit like a bump?

9.  If you were going to volunteer for an organization, what would it be?

10.  Favourite celebrity or sports star?

11.  What is your best go-to recipe when you have company coming?

And this is who I am tagging:

1.  Ann from On Sutton Place

2.  Mimi of Living in France

3.  Kei of Unfortunately Oh

4.  Adrianne of Happy Hour Projects

5.  Carol-Anne of Use The Good Dishes

6.  Stephanie of Gathered in the Kitchen

7.  Kerry of House TalkN

8.  Mindy of Rindy Mae

9.  Rosemary of VillaBarnes

10.  Terri of A Creative Princess

11.  Lesley of Fabulously Flawed

I hope these gals jump at the challenge and let us get to know them a little better.  Feel free to answer any of these above questions in the comments.  I'd love to read your answers.  :)

Thanks for the Tag, Terry (or should I say "Tanny"?)!

Nice to find out a little bit more about you.

Off to answer your questions now...

*BTW, I'm LOVING the headband/scarf!

Terri @ A Creative Princess said...

Count me in, I'll play!

Unknown said...

I like your answers!! Not surprising several of ours are the similar. I have to get me tag post up. (I am terrible and forgot)

Adrianne Surian said...

Now I know why we are friends. Creme Brulee, obviously. I'll put a post together this weekend! :)

Macey said...

I'll have to think about my answers!! :)

Kei said...

Ooh Phantom of the Opera? I think I'd be pretty won over if a guy took me to see that XD

Will do this, not sure if I can think of 11 people to tag though...don't know too many people in Blogland! lol

That was fun to read- nice knowing you better :)

Mindy said...

You know I LOVE these kinds of posts. The random tidbits are so fun - considering in reality, we're all complete strangers. :o)

I can't sing to save my life. I just "mouth" it to Happy Birthday even. lol

There's no way I could go on living without the sense of taste. I hear horror stories of people who've used nasal sprays that took away their sense of smell - which then affected their taste. I would DIE.

I got to see Phantom as well. I wish we went to more shows. I LOVE them.

I shall start my end of the bargain between the poop, pee, eat, pump, repeat schedule. Laney's, not mine. :o) It may take me a day or two, but I SHALL complete the task.

Lesley said...

Sheesh. I'm so far behind in blog reading. It's kinda pathetic.

I think it's publicly known that I loathe talking about myself. Duh. But, for you...anything.

I love your answers! I'm a fall girl, too. But anywhere in Canada is gorgeous in the fall so that's a given. And creme brulee. OMG.
