48 Questions

A friend posted this on Facebook, and I thought it would be fun to do here. I’ve seen other bloggers share such things, and I think they can be a good way to get to know the person on the other end of the wire. Happy Saturday! I have a recipe for you next week, so keep an eye out for it. I also was given a couple new products to test, so a review on those will be coming around soon too.

Coconut! I’ve always loved coconuts, and shrimp. Though, I must say that vegetables fresh from the garden, and a good steak are near the top of the list.

31. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS?

Happy endings. I have never been able to watch scary movies. I was shown Freddy Krueger by my sitter when I was a child, and since then I have not been able to handle scary films. The last one I saw was Sin City, and that’s because the previews didn’t make it seem like it was going to be so awful. I hid my face in Devin’s shoulder most of the film, and even then it took a while for me to shake it out of my mind.

32. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?

Oz the Great and Powerful. It was pretty fun and cute. I’d get it and watch it again. I thought it was a little short on plot and character depth, but the visuals were stunning.

33. WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING?

Olive.

Winter. I much prefer winter over summer. Now, you might ask why I live on Maui if I prefer cool weather and then I will have to refer you to a relief map. I don’t live by the beach. I love my mountain life.

What, I can’t have both? If I had to choose, I’d go for the hugs.

Golly, nobody has to respond and I’m not even sure who would.

Somewhere near 7.074 billion people, give or take a few.

The Merlin Trilogy by Mary Stewart, plus some books for school.
