Tag, I'm It

Meet some of my dinner guests: Gerard, Bono and Matthew

I’ve been tagged by the lovely blogger, Falling Off a High-Heeled Life, to answer a few questions about myself. High-Heeled has such an inspirational story to tell and sage advice to share for those who have been affected by a life-altering experience, be it you personally or someone you care about. Please stop by to check out her blog – you’ll be glad you did!

Now, on to the tag:

1. What three words would your friends outside the Blogging World use to describe you?
  • Funny
  • Sympathetic
  • Worrier
Odd grouping of words, I know, but I worry too much, I am sympathetic to others and I have been told by many that I have a wry (and irreverent, at times) sense of humor.

2. What five people - dead or alive - would you like to invite to dinner and why?
  • Jesus – Because I want to know if I have a shot of “getting in” and I think he would offer the best darn blessing my dining room has ever seen.
  • Bono – I want to discuss his philanthropic efforts and then have him serenade me with “All I Want is You” in my living room.
  • Edith Wharton – for writing advice and gossip.
  • William Butler Yeats – after dinner, I would ask him to write a poem for me.
  • Gerard Butler – Because he’s pretty and Scottish. That’s all.
  • BACK-UP GUEST – If one of the above had to cancel at the last minute, I’d like that teacher guy from “Glee” to stop by. He could join Bono in a duet. And, he’s pretty.

(And, Lord, I was only kidding in the first bullet. I would love to have you over for dinner and I promise to be on my best behavior. I like to think, though, that you, too, appreciate my irreverent sense of humor. :)

(And, for those of you who may be reading my blog for the first time, and you find my list somewhat blasphemous, refer back to question number one. And, lighten up a bit.)

3. Who wrote the last book you read and what was the title?
Fall by Colin McAdam

4. If a movie was made about your life, what would the title be?
"The Write Stuff"

5. What is your favorite hobby?

6. Are you a coffee or tea drinker?
COFFEE! COFFEE! COFFEE! (Think I should switch to decaf?)

7. If you had to choose, wine or champagne? Why?
Wine; champagne gives me a headache.

8. How do you order in a restaurant: look at the dessert than order the main dish, or just order the main dish and not worry about having room for dessert?
I order the main course and then, depending on how stuffed I am, I may look at the dessert menu afterward. Even if I’m stuffed to the gills, I will still look at the dessert menu.

Rather than tag a specific group of bloggers - because I have so many favorites and it's hard to choose - I'd love to have your feedback on some of these questions. So, let me know, especially on #2: who would make your dinner party guest list?

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Irreverant humor trumps them all. Especially when offered by someone you wouldn't generally think of as such. Go girl!

I would have Anderson Cooper over for the pretty. I know he's gay, but he's easy on the eyes.

Edith Wharton is a great choice of dinner-guest! Maybe Dorothy Parker with her to spark off one another?
