Monday Morning Meme, Contest Winner and New Contest

There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast. ~Author Unknown

Ah, yes. The cat... who comes knocking on my door at the crack of dawn. THAT'S why I can't sleep in. Now I remember.

======================

First off... the winner of May's contest (Your choice of a copy of either "One Night in Boston" or "Lost In Paradise" both by Allie Boniface) is... CHARITY!!!! Woo hoo!!!

Charity, just tell me which one you'd prefer, and it will be winging it's way westward to you.

Speaking of Allie, she's in the spotlight at The Long and the Short of It -- and it giving away an autographed copy of either of her books -OR- a free download of her upcoming book, "One Night In Memphis".

========================

My June contest prize is a free download of ANY The Wild Rose Press miniature rose or rosette!!! Of course, if you haven't already gotten all of MY books from them, I can highly suggest them all. But if you have, it'll be time to go shopping.

Just leave a comment and be entered to win.

===========================


1. What kind of water do you drink? Bottled water, tap water, sparkling water….? How MUCH water do you drink in a day? If you’re not drinking water, what ARE you drinking?

Mostly I drink tap water (was that a gasp I heard?). We have well water, it's yummy enough, and since they've shown that much bottled water comes from municipal taps, I figure I'm doing just fine. I have a 32 oz water bottle, and I drink two or so a day. I also drink a pot of coffee in the morning (with soy milk) and typically have one diet Coke with lime during the day.

2. Would you rather be Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, or Belle? Why?

Belle!!! Oh my word, have you SEEN the library at the castle? Sheesh. And, she doesn't have evil stepmothers or wicked fairies bothering her. Gaston is dead. The beast is a prince and her father is adorable.

There is NO question.

3. Are you an urban dweller, a suburbanite, or a country person? Are you happy where you live? Without giving too many details, tell us about the place where you live. What makes it different than other places? What do you like the most? The least?

To be honest, I think I could live anywhere. If I were single, I'd probably be back in the city. Not so much that I prefer it, but taking care of a lot of property alone would be more than I could handle. Where we live right now is just about perfect -- we have a nice house on almost 5 acres, but live only a few minutes from town. I have all the amenities I could want, easily accessible, but I don't have my neighbors sitting on top of me. The only thing I don't like is the fact that folks assume because we're on a cul-de-sac they can do things they normally wouldn't do -- like let their dogs roam free on the street. Or drive dirt bikes and ATVs up and down the road.

I suppose there are good and bad things about anywhere.

4. What little annoying thing does someone (pick any person) do that drives you absolutely crazy? Have you told this person this? Why or why not? What do you think this person would say is the most annoying thing about you?

My DH has this weird, hacking way of clearing his throat. It's really disgusting. And, no... I haven't told him. And no, he doesn't read my blog. Although today he'll probably start! LOL... I haven't told him because, in the grand scheme of things, it really doesn't matter.

Annoying about me? I'm a creature of habit. And when my routine is messed with, I get REALLY cranky. I like things in the same place all the time. When I was single, I could have found anything in my house with my eyes closed. I literally knew where I put everything. And, yes, I alphabetize my CD collection. Nothing wrong with a little attention to detail, is there?

With respect to money, you spend as little as possible.

You think good luck doesn't exist - reality is built on practicalities.

The hidden side of your personality tends to be satisfied to care for things with a minimal amount of effort.

You are tend to think about others' feelings a lot, perhaps because you are so eager to be liked.

When it comes to finding a romantic partner, you base your search on information from your friends.



Hmmm... very little of this is right. What? You mean these aren't scientific? *GASP*

Love your meme this morning - especially your thoughts on Belle vs. the other Disney heroines...

Judy Thomas said...

I'm with Allie.. it's a good meme, but now on the Disney question I couldn't come up with a better answer. I guess I should find something else to do today... lol.

Sarita Leone said...

Doesn't everyone alphabetize their CDs? :)

Happy Monday!

Wow. The best contests are the ones you didn't realize you entered. Very cool. I'll email you my choice once I ponder it a bit.

Thanks!

Charity

When it comes to finding a romantic partner, you are not too worried about finding someone right away. You're kind of laid-back in such matters.


Some of this is sort of accurate, oddly enough.

Be careful refilling your water bottle. The aluminum ones are best, and safest.
I always liked Belle best, too. She was smart, sweet and LOVED to read.
And who desn't alphabetize their CD's, books, etc? *G*
Have a pleasant day!

Dru said...

I like Belle too. I alphabetize my CDs and even my spices.

You think good luck might come your way, but if it does you'll be so surprised you'll burst out laughing.

The hidden side of your personality tends to be a little selfish. You only do what interests you.

You have a tendency to overdo things, but basically you value your friendships highly.

When it comes to finding a romantic partner, you don't have any particular type in mind, but you are inclined to look for someone who will say yes when you ask him / her out.


LOL, some of the above is true.

Congrats Charity.

I would go with Belle too, and I think the Beast is the cutest of all the heroes, in human form of course,lol.
