My 3 questions to answer are:
1. What is your greatest fear? There are lots of things to be afraid of, but right now, public enemy #1 is spiders. They seem to come out in droves this time of year, haunting every nook and cranny with their sticky webs and eight-legged creepiness. I really wouldn’t mind them so much if I weren’t allergic to their bites. (And if it weren’t for the fact that they seem to find me quite tasty so I get bit more often than most people.) To quote the magnet on my refrigerator, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself…and spiders.”
2. If you had to create a public holiday for the world, what day would it be, why and what will the day stand for? I feel like a question like this needs an altruistic answer, but, let’s face it, the world’s problems are not something that can be fixed by observance of one idealistic day. So, I’ll choose something more tangible. I think that we have a tendency to get caught up in the busy-ness of every day life. My holiday would be a “Stop and Smell the Roses day” where everyone takes a step away from the day-to-day rush to stop and spend time doing something they love with the people they love most. No being called into work, no working from home, no errand running.
3. Post a picture of your favourite food. Haha. There are so many foods to love! I couldn’t possibly pick one favorite. So here are a few:

Mega stuff Oreos
Mega Stuff Oreos–the cream equivalent of two double stuffs, without having to go to the trouble of twisting off the extra cookie tops.

Chocolate soft serve
Chocolate soft serve–it’s great by itself, but amazing with googly eyes!

McDonald's Shamrock shake
McDonald’s Shamrock shake–my love for it has nothing (ok, maybe just a little) to do with the fact that it matches my car. Why are they only available once a year?!

Ice cream with cereal
Ice cream with corn flakes. Pairing ice cream with cereal seems so obvious, but I never even considered it until I had it on this sundae in Japan.

Concord grapes
I realize my food preferences seem to be slanting toward the unhealthy, so here’s my healthy pick–concord grapes. When they are ripe, they taste amazing! They are in season right now, so I’ve been enjoying (read as: pigging out on) them for the last two weeks.

My 3 questions to pass along are:
1. If you could be anything for Halloween what would you be?
2. What are your favorite books and why?
3. Share a picture of your favorite food (I like this question so I’m using it too!).

Nominations: I think any of the blogs I follow would be worthy of this award, but I know some of you enjoy awards and some have award-free blogs. So rather than nominate anyone specifically, I’ll just put out an open invitation to my followers. ^_^


  1. That chocolate soft serve is so tempting. Goody…nice work. I wish we had roses here, I would so love to stop and smell everyday. We got number one in common, every since the day I found spiders in my hair(I made dreadlocks). I went crazy and developed a bad phobia for them. So bad my bed doesn’t touch the wall for fear of them. And oh my, you even got a magnet sticker for them…jajaja

    1. Oh my, just thinking about spiders in my hair makes my skin crawl. I would have reacted just the same as you! (Along with a great deal of screaming and running around in circles, I’m sure.) Since we live surrounded by fields, we have a *lot* of spiders. Big ones. Fortunately, we have a service that comes out every 3 months to spray the exterior of the house and patio areas and that has been highly effective at keeping them away from the house–inside and outside.

      1. Oh I did freak out, it was at d start of a 7am class, we were just 4 ladies taking that course, the male lecturer ran out while asking the others to help me because I looked like I was going to get out of my clothes. It wasn’t funny. After much assurance from my friends to calm down, I couldn’t wait for the class to be over, I went to the salon immediately after to take off the hair. Now I can laugh about it. And keep my bed from the wall still, while fumigating my room every month.
