All About Janis

My Blogging Buddy Em over in Yorkshire United Kingdom did a post on It's All About Me Me Me and I enjoyed it quite well. Reminded me of some Blogging awards many of us passed around a year or so ago, so this may be a repeat kind of posting for some of you to read about me. But I'm doing it anyway. It may be new to some of you.

1* ARE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?

Janis Paige 1960's
My Mom tells me that she liked two names for me. Susie and Janis. She chose Janis. At the time of my birth was an Actress named Janis Paige which she admired greatly.

2* WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
This afternoon. I was driving along, had a hard morning and a song by Mercy Me, and I just started crying. The song was what I needed to move on.

3*  DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
Well duh! If you read my Blog you probably know this because I talk about them all the time.  They actually aren't kids anymore. Emily is 22 and Andrea is 20.
Annie 20 & Emily 22

4* IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE A FRIEND OF YOURSELF?
Kind of an odd question, but, yeah, I always try to treat others as I would want to be treated. I think (hope) I make a good friend.

5* DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
I don't think I do...But my Hubby says, YES. I think sarcastic but watch my mouth.

6*  WELL YOU EVER BUNGEE JUMP?
Hell No!

7*  WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
The Cap'n & I have had an affair for at least 40 years. Going to have a bowl when I finish this blog posting.

8* WHAT'S THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Kindness. I can see it in their face. Their eyes. The way they listen to someone, and the way the respond to others.

 9*  WHAT IS YOUR EYE COLOR?
Blue
Im wearing a Santa's hat...My hair isn't that white!
10* SCARY MOVIE OR HAPPY ENDING?
Definitely Happy Endings!
Something to Talk about, Pretty Woman, Erin Brockovich, My Best Friends Wedding, Notting Hill, Mona Lisa Smiles, Eat, Pray Love... Just about any Julia Roberts movie!

11*  FAVORITE SMELLS?
fresh cut grass, coffee in the morning, Burberry (reminds me of Annie), Vera Wang Princess (reminds me of Emily), puppies, rain, books, blown dry hair, autumn leaves & bonfires.

12*  SUMMER OR WINTER?
I am Blessed to live where we have four seasons... I prefer the Autumn & Spring seasons most. If I had to chose between Summer & Winter, since I am starting to tire of winter now, I will go with Summer (although I dread sweating!)

13*  COMPUTER OR TELEVISION?
Absolutely Computer! The Internet is such an amazing tool.  I am so grateful for it.

14*  WHAT'S THE FURTHEST FROM HOME YOU HAVE BEEN?
I haven't been too many places. My Sis & Brother-In-Law took me up to Canada for lunch when I visited them in South Dakota (yeah..not too close to SD but I have a sweet BIL).  Also the Grand Canyon in Arizona. I've been to Mexico (border town), Texas, Utah, Florida, New York, and everything in between. Hopefully one day I can really go see the world. I would love to go to Italy, United Kingdom. Australia, and several other places!

15*  DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL TALENTS?
I know sign language, I have a way with children & animals; I'm kind and caring... 
A long time ago, I was limber & double jointed. Also I can tie a cherry stem in a knot in my mouth using my tongue and teeth..a strange skill I learned 27 years ago.  LOL

16*  WHERE WERE YOU BORN?
Right here in Indianapolis, Indiana

17*  WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES?

19*  FAVORITE MOVIE?
There are many...All time favorite is probably CRASH

One more weird thing about me... My eyes are dilated all the time. One is small the other large. It sometimes freaks people out when they notice...see the photo above.

I love your answers! I may have to do this later on.
And the cherry stem in a knot...too funny! That's one of my hidden talents! I won a contest at Bible camp by having the most unusual talent of all the counselors!

Queen of...Whatever said...

I love the way puppys smell too...
Your girls are pretty and i love the Fall here in Hoosier land , as well.
I prefer the TV though...although both could be my demise...hehe

These memes are fun aren't they. It feels good to own stuff about ourselves that unless someone asks we don't think or are to modest to say.

And you can't beat spring!

Sri Lanka, USA - San Fransisco, Savannah, Boston, New York, The inside of the White House!, Virginia and many many times to Philly. Germany, Poland, Holland France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Ireland, Wales, Scotland and many places in England, as I'll take off at a moments notice
And a day trip to St Johns, New Brunswick, Canada when on an oil tanker for three months!!!!!

So I think I win the lollipop for best journies!
