I’m it!

Wow, I’ve been tagged! I don’t nor­mal­ly do this kind of thing, but I’d do just about any­thing for Jolie, so here goes:

1. What are your nick­names?
One of my best friends called me Spoory Laur (since my maid­en name was Lau­rie Spoor). I guess I’m not real­ly a nick­name kind of gal, though.

2. What was the first movie you bought in VHS or DVD?
Dirty Danc­ing. I still have it! 

3. What is your favorite scent?
Pump­kin pie.

4. What one place have you vis­it­ed that you can’t for­get and want to go back to?Whistler, B.C., my favorite (bor­rowed) “cab­in” in the moun­tains. Thanks, dear friends, for all the won­der­ful moun­tain get­away trips!

5. Do you trust eas­i­ly?
Yes, prob­a­bly too easily.

6. Do you gen­er­al­ly think before you act, or act before you think?
I think before I act, way too much. I just fin­ished read­ing Chris Eboch’s Well of Sac­ri­fice, and I think I need to take a les­son from Eveningstar: some­times you need to act before you think, or the oppor­tu­ni­ty is lost.

7. Is there any­thing that has made you unhap­py these days?
Pol­i­tics, neg­a­tive ad cam­paigns, lies and manip­u­la­tions of the truth, the deep divi­sions and dis­agree­ments in our soci­ety and around the world.

8. Do you have a good body image?
Good? No. Suf­fi­cient? Yes.

9. What is your favorite fruit?
Hmmm… tough call. Peach­es or straw­ber­ries? (You decide; I hate mak­ing decisions.)

10. What web­sites do you vis­it dai­ly?
My Google cal­en­dar, Google read­er, Face­book (in that order).

11. What have you been seri­ous­ly addict­ed to late­ly?
Cof­fee, the all-impor­tant pro­duc­tiv­i­ty enhancer. Face­book, the fun but insid­i­ous pro­duc­tiv­i­ty killer.

12. What kind of per­son do you think the per­son who tagged you is?
Deter­mined, mod­est, gen­er­ous, glam­orous, won­der­ful mother. 

13. What’s the last song that got stuck in your head?
The theme song from I Dream of Jean­nie (no, I have no idea why it’s in there).

14. What’s your favorite item of cloth­ing?
Paja­mas, the fuzzi­er the better.

15. Do you think Rice Krispies are yum­my?
Yes, with or with­out but­ter and marsh­mal­lows. Snap, crack­le, pop!

16. What would you do if you saw $100 lying on the ground?
Just lying there, with no one around and no idea who it belongs to? Well, in that case, I’d pick it up, silly!

17. What items could you not go with­out dur­ing the day?
Cof­fee. Hugs and “I love you”s from my fam­i­ly. (Okay, fam­i­ly comes first, but they don’t come any­where near me until after I’ve had my coffee.)

18. What should you be doing right now?
Clean­ing the car out for the dri­ve down to the Sec­ond Annu­al Kidlit Blog­ging Con­fer­ence!

Now, to tag eight more who haven’t yet been tagged. I’m going to tag a few Face­book friends since they don’t have active blogs that I know of, but hope­ful­ly they can post their answers on their wall or pro­file or something. 🙂

Bernie, Chris, Rob, Jim, Peg­gy, Kir­by, Joni, and
