Monday Mayhem – Turnabout, fair play, and breakfast cereal

Posted on Jun 3, 2013 by Margaret Ethridge   27 Comments | Posted in Blog

I do a lot of talking about me on this blog, but let’s face it, I’m not that interesting. This fact was hammered home over the weekend as I tried desperately to come up with topics for blog posts that weren’t complete snoozefests.

Then I realized something. I may be boring (wake, work, eat, write, sleep – lather, rinse, repeat), but I find YOU infinitely fascinating. Therefore, I thought it would be fun to turn things around.

I want to interview you.

Comment below with your answers and I will draw the name of one lucky commenter on Wednesday, June 5th and send them an Advanced Read Copy of The Wedding Day Collection.

WeddingCollection_MD

This anthology includes Always a Groomsman – the story of Tom Sullivan and Maggie McCann’s (Commitment) wedding day!

You game? Let’s do this thing!

What’s the title of the last book you read?

What is the worst job you can imagine having?

What is your favorite breakfast cereal?

Name one thing you own that you wish you didn’t.

If you were famous, what would you be famous for?

 

Happy Monday, my darlings!

    I find Evelyn interesting because she looks good in orange. Most people can’t claim that.

    What is the worst job you can imagine having? Cleaning fish.

    What is your favorite breakfast cereal? Cinnemon Toast Crunch

    Name one thing you own that you wish you didn’t. Nothing, if I own it, I ‘OWN’ it.

    1. *smirks* The last book I actually FINISHED reading was “Spring Chickens”. And I’m now 3/4 through “Someday, Someday, Maybe”.
    2. Worst job would be something like a farmer, where you get dirty all the time.
    3. I’m weird… I actually like Special K Forest Berries
    4. A Swiss Ball — it just sits in the garage, mocking me because I never use it, and reminding me that maybe if I actually DID some sit-ups every so often, I wouldn’t have such a flabby tummy. 🙂
    5. Being able to look like I’m working when I’m really not.

      Excellent taste in reading materials! I also have the sit-up ball gathering dust. Perhaps we should try to motivate each other. Than again, maybe we should just read a good book….

    What’s the title of the last book you read? – Shattered Valor by Elaine Levine

    What is the worst job you can imagine having? – Anything to do with slaughtering.

    What is your favorite breakfast cereal? – Golden Grahams

    Name one thing you own that you wish you didn’t. – I wish we didn’t own a fake Christmas tree. Every year I am so tempted to get a real one but since the fake one is so handy, I keep using it.

    If you were famous, what would you be famous for? – Hard one because I am already so incredibly famous. What? You have never heard of me before?

    1. The Next Best Thing by Jennifer Weiner. (I loved it!) Today I started The Apple Orchard by Susan Wiggs.
    2. Sitting in a cubicle all day, answering irate customer service calls.
    3. Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds. (But secretly, it’s Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch.)
    4. The hutch in the dining room. It was foisted on us when we got married. It doesn’t match anything and doesn’t look like anything I’d pick out, but it’s full of crap I don’t know where else I’d put, so it continues to stay, year after year.
    5. If I told you, I’d have to kill you.

    1. A Natural Woman: A Memoir by Carole King
    2. Anything on an assembly line. The repetition would KILL me.
    3. Lucky Charms
    4. It was my mother-in-law’s & we got it when she died…a baby seal skin hat & purse. 🙁 So horrible.
    5. Perhaps being a world class smart-ass?

    Thanks for the fun questions!

    1. When it Happens to You – Molly Ringwald
    2. Picking through the garbage in India
    3. I like cereal, but I never eat it. Cheerios is always good. Honey Nut too. I am weird and like Grape Nuts, and granola. Rice Krispies are another fave.
    4. About 100 pounds around my middle…
    5. My acting ability, naturally.

      I find it amusing that the people who mentioned feces in their response tend to have small children in the house. Coincidence? I think not.
