Real Neat Blog Award

Thank you to Leigh Smith, who nominated me for the Real Neat Blog award.

I was asked to answer seven questions, and here they are:

1.  What's your favorite time of day and why?
I am definitely a morning person. I have a lot of energy when I get up, and do my best work before breakfast.

2.  Name the last three books you read.
Lark Rise to Candleford
Shopaholic to the Stars

3.  What's your favorite movie?
I am not really into movies, but the last one I watched was Boyhood, and it was pretty good.

4.  If cost was not a factor, where in the world would you most like to visit?

5.  Milk chocolate or dark chocolate?
No question about it: I love dark, 70% cocoa at least.

6.  Are you a breakfast eater, and if so, what's your favorite breakfast?
I always eat breakfast. My favourite quick weekday breakfast is Rice Krispies, and for a weekend breakfast I enjoy Polish sausage, scrambled eggs and toast.

7.  What do you want for your next birthday?
A Kitchen Aid stand mixer in light blue, to match my kitchen.

Now I'm supposed to nominate some bloggers and ask them seven questions. What I will do instead is nominate all my readers who do not have blogs of their own. If you would like to answer my questions, leave the answers in a comment.

1.  How many languages can you speak?

2.  Who is your favourite musician or singer?

3.  Have you ever told anyone about your love of spanking?

4.  Who was your favourite teacher?

5.  Have you ever stayed up all night?

6.  Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

7.  Is there any food you refuse to eat?

Have fun!

From Hermione's Heart

Enjoyed reading your answers Hermione. I've heard Boyhood is a good film, not watched it myself

Loved reading your answers too. I've not seen the film Boyhood, I'll have to check it out. We just watched The Judge and I enjoyed that very much.

Hi Hermione, I enjoyed your answers. I am an early bird too, and do always have a good breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day. I haven't watched Boyhood yet, but would love to. Thank you for sharing.

Loved your answers Hermione. I am definitely not a morning person unless morning begins around noon. LOL My favorite breakfast right now is my baked oatmeal or Greek yogurt topped with fresh fruit and granola.

Hugs and blessings...

1. How many languages can you speak?
Just one – English.

2. Who is your favourite musician or singer?
My favorite changes every couple of years – but right now, I enjoy the music of Jimmy Buffett.

3. Have you ever told anyone about your love of spanking?
I have told my wife, but she does not share that proclivity.

4. Who was your favourite teacher?
A college teacher who taught educational psychology. You would not believe his name. I remember him eating a subway sandwich while he taught our class (that is not the reason he was my favorite – but I really liked his disregard of formality).

5. Have you ever stayed up all night?
Yes – in the service on a night watch – several times).

6. Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
Mostly introverted – as I need solo time to recharge. There are times when I am extroverted. (I know it should be a characteristic – but I have to be extroverted some times to perform some of the functions of my work – and I have learned to overcome that characteristic when I need to).

7. Is there any food you refuse to eat?
I do not really like pickled beets – but I do not really refuse to eat them. I just don't eat them.

Thank you for your blog - I really enjoy all of your posts. And Thank you for the questions.

Terps - I like the treats too, made with red and green krispies at Christmastime.

Ronnie - We downloaded it for free from our public library.

Leigh - I haven't seen The Judge; must look into it.

Nina - I agree, it's important to start the day off right.

Cat - Your breakfast sounds yummy!

Anon - Thanks you for your answers.

Roz - I don't know how you do it. I'm sleepy by 9 pm.
