A Little About Me

by Sherry Riter in Alyssa,Award,Sherry

Last night MelRoxxwas up way too late (so was I) and tagged me for this meme and since I’ve never done one, I thought I would take a crack at some short answers (that should be a challenge).

Question 1 : Who do you think is the hottest movie star?
Harrison Ford, George Clooney, Keanu Reeves, Jeff Bridges

I hear all the younger women gagging, but I AM older and these men are just hot to me. Just wait, some day all the men you think are hot now, will be old soon enough!

Harrison FordGeorge ClooneyKeanu ReevesJeff Bridges

Question 2 : Apart from your house and your car, what is the most expensive thing you’ve ever bought?

Question 3 : What is you’re most treasured memory?
The birth of my sweet daughter, Alyssa

Question 4: What is the best gift you ever received as a child?
Lincoln Logs, Legos, my Blue & White striped swing set, a pair of pale blue knickers my mother made, and an opal ring from my mother the first year after my parents got a divorce

Question 5: What is the biggest mistake you’ve ever made?
Eeeewwwww…I don’t even want to think about that kind of stuff! Those things are done and way over and TODAY is a NEW DAY!

Question 6: Give four words to describe yourself.
Nerdy, Intelligent, Compassionate, Sincere

Question 7: What was your highlight or low light in 2008?
Low – my best friend/dog passed away (I can’t even talk about this one)
High – Every day with my daughter is a highlight.

Question8: What is your favourite film?
The Mirror Has Two Faces
The Notebook
You’ve Got Mail
The Sound of Music
Somethings Gotta Give

Question 9: Tell something not generally known about yourself.
I get very motion sick and there isn’t anything that helps me, so don’t sit beside me on a plane or put me in the back seat of your car (use your imagination).

Question10: If you were a comic strip/cartoon character, who would you be?
A mixture of Woody Woodpecker, Huckleberry Hound Dog, and Bullwinkle

Woody Woodpecker, Huckleberry Hound Dog and Bullwinkle all smished together into one person

You can stop laughing now.

It is rather funny.

Especially if I explain that I have a shock of red hair attached to a body that is always cold (blue) with knobby knees…

Okay, NOW you CAN stop laughing.

I’d like to pass this meme on to the following to complete if they would like to participate (You’ve stopped laughing, right?):

You did very well with your first Meme. Congratulations! I found that interesting about the motion sickness. I wonder what causes that.

I love your answers! And Harrison Ford will always be incredibly hot. I don't care if he is in a wheelchair looking all Dick Cheney-ish…he will always be Han Solo! And George Clooney
is soooo nice to look at!

(And thanks for passing it along to me…I love these things!!)

Congrats on your first meme and your awards! I suffer from motion sickness a lot too. My husband has learned never ask me to read maps in the car anymore while he drives (good thing for GPS) and I always have to remember to take my dramamine before going on a boat or else I will seriously regret it


12 Kristin August 14, 2009 at 2:02 pm

Congrats on your awards! And Clooney…Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm!


13 The Double Dipped Life August 14, 2009 at 2:13 pm
