This Ain't Yo' Momma's game of Tag

ONE. you must post the rules. (Check!)
TWO. post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post. (I’m only posting 5—I can’t tell you all my secrets or I won’t have anything to blog about, HA!)
THREE. answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you've tagged.
FOUR. tag eleven people and link them on your post (I’m just going to tag 5 bloggy friends for this!)
FIVE. let them know you've tagged them!
Before I get started, I do have to thank Miss sSe over at Seersuckered Sailor for tagging me in this fun game...I love reading her blog, and look forward to her new posts...plus her sweet comments on my blog always brighten my day!
Five Fun Facts About Me…
1) I drink (almost) everything, whether it is hot or cold, through a straw.
2) My New Favorite Workout Station on Pandora is the Enrique Iglesias (Don’t Judge)
3) During Spinning Class I (secretly) compete with the person beside me either with speed, or putting on extra resistance.
4) Anytime I’m on my Gmail Account I stay “invisible…” It gives me an ‘air of mystery’ that I’ll never have.
5) I’m currently obsessed with Pickles, Popcorn, and Potatoes. No, I’m not…if I were it would be immaculate.

The 11 Questions from Miss sSe to Me:
1. Favorite de-stressor?
A good workout, a long nap, a good cry (this is rare if I actually do this), or good company.

2. Diet Coke or Tea? Early Bird or Night Owl? Soup or Salad? Milk or Dark Chocolate? E-books vs. Real books? Hair up or down? Water or snow?
Diet Coke. Early Bird. Both. Dark Chocolate. Real Books. Depends On My Hair—which I swear has a mind of its own. Water.

3. What is your favorite time of day/day of the week/month of the year?
I swear, I don’t have any favorites. I really try to appreciate every day/month, etc. I don’t really have a most favorite—though I am partial to warm weather so Spring through Fall is alright with me J.

4. What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod?
I can’t figure out how to figure that out, but lately I’ve been listening to Mumford and Sons, Mika and Lil Wayne for my workouts and then when I’m studying I’ve been listening to a lot of Fleetwood Mac this week!

5. Do you plan out blog posts or is it spontaneous?
I try to plan out my posts for the week about once a week (Sunday), although I sometimes get ideas that I have to write about or tell you all about and then that is slightly more spontaneous.

6. Are you and your friends like twins or polar opposites?
I feel like most of my friends have a lot of commonalities (similar background, manners, tastes, shopping habits, sense of humor, etc).  However a lot of them have different political views, different life goals, are a lot more laid back (not as tightly wound/type-a as I am), and appreciate things I’d never experience if we weren’t friends.

7. When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
30 Minutes of Free Time: Power Nap, Watch a show on Hulu, Call a Friend, Go Shopping, Run an errand on my to-do list….

8. If you could offer a new blogger only one piece of advice, what would it be?
Be Yourself. Don’t write for your audience…write for you.

9. If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?
Scarlett O’Hara...or a female Harry Potter.

10. What is your biggest pet peeve?
I have a lot of pet peeves…I could probably write a book that Emily Post would be proud of…Lately, I’m super frustrated by other’s lack of punctuality—whether that is in real life, in response to an email/text, etc.

11. What’s the one blog post you’re most proud of? You Are Special To Me: http://classescasesandchaos.blogspot.com/2010/12/you-are-special-to-me.html

2. What do you wish you would have been named?
3. Favorite Fiction Book?
4. Best 90s Song?
5. Favorite Type of Workout
6. What age was your awkward phase...and what made it awkward?
7. Go To Bible Verse?
8. When Someone Asks Me: "Does this make me look fat?" (and it does) what do you say?
9. Least Favorite Candy?
10. Coke or Pepsi? 
11. What is the best way to end a day?

  1. Awww, well thank you, and I promise these sweet comments wouldn't be flowin' if your blog wasn't as great as it is. Also I actually started hysterically laughing at question 8. I can't wait for the answers to that

  2. Ha! I totally compete with the person next to me on the treadmill or bike! Hilarious! And your 30 min of free time is the same thing! I actually watched a quick show on Hulu earlier! ha! :)

  3. I love this, thank you so much for tagging me! Diet Coke v. Tea - so glad you chose DC. It's heaven.

  4. Thanks for the tag, I did it today! You know I LOVE Scarlett O'Hara--I think she's every southern girl's idol haha!

  5. I'm posting my tag tomorrow! I do the same thing with spin class (it must be our type-a-ness!)--I also always sit near a mirror and tell myself "You can go faster than that!" I'm also usually invisible on GMail--too funny!
