Monday Quiz About Me

1. Where do you go to get your news?

I pick up stories here and there, but my main sources are my iGoogle home page because it lets me choose top stories from a variety of sources, and The Toledo Blade on oine and occasionally paper for local stories.

2. What Olympic level skill do you have (e.g. One could be a world-class paper clip bender)?

I’m a World Class Soup Chef. I can make a great pot of soup out of almost anything.

3. If I say the word, 'intellectual,' what do you think?

Stimulation. An intellectual endeavor is one that is mentally stimulating.

4. Who in your family do you look the most like?

My face is a cross between both of my grandmothers. If you took negatives of photos of Noni and Grandma at 46 and laid them on top of each other and printed, you’d have a picture of me.

And don't forget to add a 5th Question on your own blog so we can answer as we hop around!

By this time next month all of the students will be back in school. When you were in grade school did you dread or look forward to going back?

I actually liked learning and doing my school work. It gave me a sense of growing up and moving ahead. I wasn’t “in a hurry” to grow up, but it was something I looked forward to.

I went to a catholic elementary school, participated in summer recreation activities sponsored by the city and participated in a lot of summer programs with the Baptist Church Youth Group, so at different times of the year I got to be with different groups of friends, so on a strictly people basis, I was always excited for everything when it came around again.

I was young when I established my outlook of cherishing the past and looking forward to the future.

I was (and still am) a nerd. I loved going back to school. Now I can't say that once I hit high school, I loved going back for the educational aspects, but I always did look forward to that first day.

Nani, I loved all your answers to the award questions. Especially where you really do like reality shows. I can't stand them either. I love Project Runway, Chopped, etc. I call them competive challenges, not reality.

As for going back to school, I alwys loved school. Books and teaching were my dreams as a kid. I read tons of books, and even made it to the teaching in a way. (I taught ceramics at my store, local schools, etc.)

I have never met or seen photos of my grandmothers, but I think I definitely look a lot like my mother. One day, I would love to find a photo of my mother's mother. I've been told that she was beautiful. And I'm named after her.

Now it's time to convince Pogo that he might want to go outside and stretch his little legs on a patch of grass. lol. You have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.

I always dreaded school. Hated it!! I think the only thing I looked forward to was clothes shopping before school, that's it!

I think I looked forward to it due to the fact I could meet up with all my friends that weren't close enough to just walk to their houses and play with them.

I like to refer to myself as a forever student. Even today I often think about taking a course just for the learning.

I always looked forward to going back to school. In fact, I think I am a perpetual student (I attend college now).

Popping in on the Monday hop.
