Winding down....Let's play tag. You're it.

I saw this on several blogs and ignored it for a while since we were busy.  But now that I'm kicking back for the weekend I guess I have time to play.  Got these questions from Quinn's blog.  He's the reason for the extra question at the end.  I like it, so I kept it.

Erica's answers are in this color, mine are in this color.  I thought they were nice fall colors.  I'm in that mood.  Hubby and I took the kids to to the pumpkin patch today.

1. If you could have a superpower, what would it be? Why?
I'd SO be Elastigirl. Sure, you can get stuck between closing doors. But you can also smack people from across the room without them knowing who did it.

mega cleaning power...if you saw my house lately you'd understand why i need this

2. Who is your style icon?
Thrift sale (so, maybe it's you!)

audrey hepburn, jennifer garner

3. What is your favorite quote?
"I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." -EB White

hmmm....today it's "I love you to the moon--and back."  from Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney

4. What is the best compliment you've ever received?
 compliment - ???? I can help you out, erica.  you are the BEST blog partner ever!!!

5. What playlist/cd is on your ipod/cd player right now?
 iPod - I have no iPod, but I aspire to own one someday. grr...

i only have my iPod on when i'm running, which i am not doing right now. 

6. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
I was born a night owl, but am forced (as a mom/teacher) to be a morning person.

my answer is identical to erica's

7. Do you prefer dogs or cats?
Dogs. Bar none.

yeah, she stole mine again.  cats make my eyes turn red and my throat itch.

8. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
(erica has no idea, she just goes with it)

my middle name is lynn, my grandmother's maiden name was west.  i am shy.  i didn't want to put my own real name out there in case someone i knew found out i tried to write a novel.

9. Do you prefer coffee or tea?
Coffee. If possible, with flavored creamer, but black is nice. Coffee someone else made is ALWAYS better than mine, though!

coffee, black.  20 oz every day.

Now it's your turn.

(Copy and paste the questions, with your answers added, for your next blog post.  Or one next week.  Or two weeks from now.  Whenever you get around to it.  And don't forget to tag anyone reading the post so they can do it, too.)


  1. It was nice learning more about you both.

    I like those quotes. E.B White's is great. And who doesn't love that picture book, Guess How Much I Love You?

    My iPod is essential. It's almost always playing when I write.

  2. I wish I would have thought of mega-cleaning power. Although Elastigirl can probably clean from the comfort of her recliner, so I still have that going. . .

  3. Thanks for reminding me to give my quotee credit! I DO love that book, more than my kids unfortunately. I never get to pick! Maybe I should get back to listening to music while writing. That might help my Voice. Sometimes I felt like the words of the songs got in the way of my words. Now I guess it's more like the internet gets in the way of opening up my word document.
