Over at Cee’s Life Photography Blog is a great way for bloggers to get to know each other via her Share Your World Questions. Here is week 11:
What’s your least favorite mode of transportation? These days, air travel. The seats are so small, I’m so fat, and everything about it is just nasty, from the food in the airport to how dirty everything is. I traveled a great deal as a younger woman and enjoyed seeing different parts of the country. But I’m glad these days to not be traveling for business anymore.
Are you a cat, dog, goat or prefer the zoo person? I loved my little cats dearly and still miss them. But the dogs are pretty special too – most days. The miniature pinscher has a mission in life and that’s to protect me from everyone and everything – including the three-year-old little girl who was standing next to me when I picked him up at doggy daycare the other day. I was so embarassed! He turned and started screaming at her and she started crying because he was so mean.
What really makes my heart sing? Shopping for books. I love checking out bookstores. They each have something different, even if they’re part of the same chain. I go each week to see what’s new on Tuesdays.
What word or words are fun for you to say? Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is certainly a favorite. I loved the Mary Poppins movie, although it was nothing like the book. Mary Poppins in the book is not a sweet, gentle woman. She has much of the same mystical about her, but not in an affectionate way.
A new recent fun word is iPhoneography. What a mouthful! Try saying that fast three times.
