1. Does blogging make you fat? Do you find yourself sitting around and eating more since you started your blog? Or do you get so caught up in the whole blogging routine that you forget to eat? I don't think it's blogging per se, but I do a lot of my work on the computer (LASR, editing, writing, etc.), but I have gained weight and I believe that it's because I'm not as active. Of course, I'm also OLDER and my metabolism has just slowed way down. I want an ET....I almost have Bob convinced ...lol
2. The one topic I will not touch on my blog is politics. Why? What sorts of topics do you receive the most comments on? What sorts of topics do you receive the least number of comments on? I don't talk politics (or religion) because (1) I don't think anyone cares what my opinion is, (2) talking about it won't change anyone's opinion, (3) I don't like the snarkiness that comes along with those particular topics. At one time I had a "no snark zone" button in the sidebar (can't remember if it's still there or not.. I took a lot of my sidebar down a few weeks ago because the page was causing people's machines to freeze up).
3. Spring is coming. How is your wardrobe? What sorts of clothes do you usually wear in the spring? Where do you normally shop for your clothes? How successful are you in finding clothes for yourself? I hate buying clothes for myself. And, during the spring I wear pretty much what I wear all year round ...jeans and tops. I normally leave off the jacket and sometimes wear shorts at the house (I have a "skort" I wear outside the house). I keep promising myself a new wardrobe if I lose the weight I need. So far, self isn't listening. chanel handbags
4. We should treat every day as a special gift - we’re alive, right? What made this past week special for you? (And if you’ve already talked about that special something on your blog, then think of something else - something little perhaps, but had a big impact on you or your loved ones). This past week I had the opportunity to go to a writers retreat in Panama City Beach. I missed being with Bob, but it was a fantastic opportunity to do nothing but write. And.. I got about 2000 words written...and then something horrible happened:
