Tag, I'm It! Part 2

The rules, again:

1 You must post the rules.
2 Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create eleven new questions to ask the  people you’ve tagged.
3 Tag eleven people and link to them on your post. (I’m cheating here. Questions to come…brain drain.)
4 Let them know you’ve tagged them! (See parentheses above.)

Here are my questions from Chris:

1. What’s the best book you’ve read so far in 2012?

ENDER’S GAME by Orson Scott Card. Oh my gosh, the awesome. It is staggering. Dumbfounding. Astounding. I don’t know how I’m going to review it.

2. What’s your most anticipated book of 2012 so far?

The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. I hope I get to start it soon!

3. What’s your favorite song or album of 2012 so song (doesn’t have to be from this year)?

It’s a toss up between Two Steps From Hell’s Archangel or Invincible. Can’t get enough of it.

Two Steps from Hell, Freedom Fighters

4. What’s the best thing to happen to you so far this year?

For reasons I have chosen to to get into on the blog, 2011 was really, really awful for me. So just starting a new year was a relief. I did have a kick-ass birthday as well. 🙂

5. What’s the worst thing to happen to you so far this year?

CHUCK ended. My Twitter peeps just burst out laughing.


6. What’s the best piece of news you’ve heard not concerning you so far this year? This could be a political event, a news item that made you smile, something that happened to a friend, etc.

Andi and I started cooking up a newish project. I love plotting with my Andi-bug.

7. What’s the best thing you’ve cooked/eaten/best recipe you’ve saved so far this year?

In Asheville, last week, we went to the Bistro at Biltmore. We got this calamari appetizer that was out of this world. That is very closely followed by the Wonton Noodle Soup I got at this teeny tiny Asian place called The Noodle Shop. Really. They had like, 8 tables, and 6 of them were big enough for two people. Best wontons I’ve EVER had. *drool*

8. What’s your biggest goal for this year and how’s it working for you so far?

Find a new job. Not so great so far.

9. Have you discovered any new to you blogs yet this year that you’re loving?

Let’s see. I finally added a few to my reader! The Alcove by my new reading twin Emily (hurray Tiffany Aching!). I’ve also added Books are my Boyfriends because girlfriend cracks me up.

10. What’s your favorite thing you’ve seen on the screen so far this year? This could be a tv show/music video/movie/documentary, etc.

Last week, in Asheville, the hubby and I went to see The Woman in Black. Master Ratcliffe did a very nice job carrying most of the movie on his own. And also, HELLO FREAKING PORCELAIN DOLLS! I hate porcelain dolls.


11. Do you plan on doing any gardening in 2012? Come on it’s me…you knew there’d be some gardening in here

Tell the truth Chris, is this question for me? OF COURSE I will have a garden! With lots of tomatoes! Now that I have a few tried-n-true tomato canning recipes in my repertoire, I am all set and ready go! Also hope to have corn, green beans, and cucumbers for canning as well. Oh my goodness, my hands are itching to get into some dirt.


I think I’ve seen just about everyone I would have asked to do this, already asked, so I think I’ll just end it here. If you would like me to come up with some questions for you however, I would be more than happy to, just ask!

  1. Yep, Heather needs a new job. I miss Heather pre-horrible job stress… I have my fingers crossed that you find an awesome awesome job. (And, actually, I have the same wish for myself and Ana… Random tangent.) Here's hoping 2012 is an awesome year for you. I really need to reread Ender's Game because I badly decided to read it when there was just too much going on in my life and I didn't like it. Also, I really want to read The Snow Child. First, I need to go see how terribly far ahead of me you are in the Rothfuss and try to catch-up! I didn't get a chance to read it yesterday!

  2. You are the best ever. Did you know that?? I read this post this morning and I was just so touched I couldn't even formulate a response. Thanks for shout-out, new reading twin 🙂

    Also: LOVE Ender's Game! I really need to reread it just to see how much I remember. When I read it for the first time, (years ago), I reread it over and over and over again, and I'm curious to see how much of it is still lurking somewhere in my brain.

    Another also: tomatoes!! I know where I'm spending the summer . . . 🙂

  3. I managed to transfer into a new postion at work, which will bring MUCH happiness once I finally get rid of some pieces of the old job I'm still doing. So I bequeath to you my new job karma.

    And don't fall out of your chair, but I have no idea who Chuck even is.

  4. Wait–no picture of Ryan Reynolds?! Shame. I'm also sad that Chuck has ended. I keep thinking about it periodically. 🙁 Scott HATED the ending but I kind of thought it was perfect.
