Ok, my friends, here is a game for you ( if you're so inclined). My children have just settled down for a long winters nap ( God willing)...and i am all nestled in sweater and cap ...ready to blog baby! Amanda Williams, my lovely friend, tagged me in this "11 things about me and (you?)" blog game. She asked her blogger friends these 11 questions, and then I am supposed to tag 11 others with new questions. I'm afraid i only have 11 people who read this blog so "TAG, YOU'RE IT" ( if you want to be) ......here we go.....

11 things about me ( Asked by Amanda Williams...good ones Amanda)

1. Did you have a nickname as a child? What was it?
i had two:
a. "AC" ....my initials for my first and middle name. Amanda Christine. i loved when my mom would call me this.
b. "Bertha" and i would call my best friend "Gertrude".......( us silly kids)
2. "What movie can you quote best"
Anchor Man........" Oh Baxter, you are my little gentleman"
3. What was your favorite past time in middle school?
hmmmmmm. teasing and spraying my 80's hairdo, singing 80's songs.....maybe a little break dancing
4. what did you want to be in high school when you grew up?
a singer (and if they could see me now....ha ha.....)
5. Are you afraid of heights?
not really....
6. What was the highlight of your week?
When the stomach bug LEFT our house. GOOD-RIDDANCE! ( and by the way..i looked up how to spell the word "riddance" and this is correct! Who knew? maybe you did know. I am an English major that spells remarkably horrible.
7.what is your favorite city?
Nash-vegas baby!. i love how this city feels like a small town and a city at the same time. i do miss water so much that i may have answered a beach city if i knew of one.
8.What's the best concert you've ever been to?
oh! i love music and there have been so many good ones. But the one that stands out is the the solo performance by imogen heap.

Today i will answer, : "sit in silence by the ocean water. Maybe with a good book in tote."

Yay! I'm so glad you did this! I know it's kinda silly, but I love finding out random things about my friends... AND random things I have in common with my friends. Such as: ANCHORMAN. Love of the name Gertrude (my grandmother's name was Etta Gertrude. She went by Trudy.:) Love of the small-townedness (??) of Nashville. And obvious love of rollerskating, as demonstrated by the selection of an AWE.SOME. rollerskating song.

Well done, friend. Well done.
