Tag - A Teensy Eensy Bit Modified

Oh Boy...

Seems that one game of tag wasn't enough for some of my bloggy friends, no they just didn't get their fill the last time, so they've decided to revive this childhood bloggy favorite.  I'm so bad at this.  I was tagged a while ago by Erika and since I wasn't quick enough Kelley tagged me too. 

See, I'm so crazy verbose, this is no easy task for me.  You don't even realize how long EACH BLOG POST takes me on a good day.  I type, I erase, I type, I re-type, I re-read, I erase.  You know what I mean!?!?  So, trying to be succinct is just not something I'm very good at.  I'm actually really, really bad at it.  Try as I might, I go on and on and on and on.  Blather might be a good word to describe what I do when it comes to Q & A's.  Speaking of "blather" - great word to use in Hanging With Friends.  That, and QAT {one of the few words you can make with a "q" without needing a "u"}. 

Oh okay...

Here Are The rules:
* Post these rules
* Answer the 10 questions that the tagger posted for you
* Create 10 questions of your own to ask the people that you're about to tag
* Tag 10 people and link them with your post (and let them know they've been tagged!)

Kelley's questions from Buggy for Second Grade:

1. If you could travel to any place where would you go?
I don't have any one place I'd like to travel to.  Our family goal is to visit each state in the good 'ol US of state each summer {both hubby and I are teachers} and show our boys as much as we can of our wonderful country.

2. What current fashion trend are you loving right now?
Fashion?  What's that?  I'm comfort queen.  I wish I were more fashion forward, but I'm not.  I'm not an old ninny...but "trendy" is another word {along with succinct} that just isn't in my vocabulary.

3. What current education trend are you currently loving right now?
Hmmm, I'm having a literacy coach come into my classroom right after break to help me with reading clubs using this book...

4. What is your go to food or snack?
Chocolate if I'm in that kind of mood...but I love sugar snap peas too!

5. Are you a flats or heels girl?
Ha - think you can guess?  FLATS! {That closely resemble slippers}

6. If you could change anything about yourself what would you change?
I would workout more consistently

7. What is your favorite sport to watch or play?
Probably baseball - but I honestly don't watch many sports.  I love GOING to a Tiger's game though...LOVE it!!!!!

8. What are you looking forward to doing this summer?
We are renting a cottage up on Lake Leelanau {Michigan} for a week and I cannot wait!!!!

9. What is your favorite piece of technology?
My iPad!!!!!!!

10. What is the best movie you have seen recently?
The Hunger Games!

And Erika from The Honey Bunch tagged me too!  Here are her questions...

1. If you could be any animal what would you be and why?
LOL - Ummm....none.  I think I lack imagination. Maybe a well loved dog...but I'd have to be really spoiled, like my own.

2. What is your favorite drink?
An ice cold glass of milk

3. What is the best book you've ever read and why?
I don't have a best book I've ever read - although I was really pushed to think when I read The Shack...

4. What are your top 5 teacher blogs?
I plead the fifth...

Love you ALL!
5. What is your favorite non-teaching blog?
Clemsongirl and the Coach - although she's been MIA

6. What is the name of your favorite font?
courier?!?  Helvetica?  Trebuchet?  Ha - just kidding!!!!!  {does anybody use those?!?}  I remember when all I knew was Comic Sans...oh how I loved that font.  Probably smiley monster ?!?! {Kevin and Amanda}

7. Do you wear a watch or not? If so which wrist?
No, but if I did it would be on my left wrist

8. Gold or silver?

9. What is your favorite TV show to watch?
Modern Family but mostly Reality T.V.

10. Dog, cat or other?
I'm supposed to tag 10 others.  You know I'm a teacher, right?  You know that when I do a job I want to do it right? Right?  To do this job correctly, I'm probably supposed to check to see if the people I choose have already been chosen.  I'm not going to do that.  I'm going to choose all willy nilly.  Do you mind?  So if I tag you, and you've already been tagged, no worries - I won't take it an eensy bit personally that you don't answer my questions.  Totally cool with that. 
Kimberley @ First In Maine
Tanya @ A Class Act
Okay, I just modified my curriculum.  Ten was more than I could handle. I tried really hard.  But I wasn't able to perform with success and a modification was a must.  Or is it an accommodation?  I can't remember...
I think I can handle ten questions....
1.  Do you have any bad habits?  Care to share?
2.  Outdoors or Indoors?

3.  Books:  Real deal, Kindle, Nook, iPad, other?

4.  Night owl or early riser?

5.  Do you have a best friend?

6.  Favorite room in your house?

7.  What do you pride yourself on as a teacher?

8.  Where do you blog?

9.  Your home alone, somebody rings the doorbell, you don't know them, do you answer the door?

10.  When telemarketers call do you listen, tell them you're not interested politely, hang up on them?

Phew...that was a workout.  I did it though. And I feel good.  Accomplished.

  4. Hi Holly:
    If I had written about this game, I would have written a paragraph very similar to your second paragraph! That describes my BlogApproach almost exactly!

    Your colorful answers are beautiful!

    I'm already behind two, so I have to play FAST before someone else gets me. (And, no, that is not a request)
    : )

    Happy weekend!
