Tag! I’m It! 11 Questions for Me

I don’t participate in memes but these “11 Questions” posts are fun to read so here goes nothing.

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. (won’t be tagging)
4 Let them know you’ve tagged them! (won’t be tagging)

These questions are from Care, and here are my answers:

1.  Tell me about any letters you’ve written lately to a friend just for the heck of it?
I haven’t written a letter to anyone in a really long time. I think it’s been at least 6 months if not longer. I send a lot of emails, but I assume you mean actual, hand-written letters. Nope. I think my hand has forgotten how to write!

2. Do you have a favorite beer?
I am not a beer drinker. The only time I ever craved it, was when I was pregnant with #2. Weird. I didn’t indulge (in case you were wondering). Plus, I am gluten-free now and some beers pose problems for me.  If I had to choose one, it would be some kind of honey ale.

3. If you ever write a book (or if you have), which genre would it be/is it?
I do have the workings of a book in my head and if it ever gets written, it will fall into the literary fiction category. It’s the one genre that consistently resonates with me. I could also see myself writing a book for Young Adults. Especially one geared towards boys, since my son (the non-reader) always complains about the lack of books for his age group.

4. What is your favorite dish to cook?
What I make, all the time, is pasta with some kind of sauce but my favorite to cook (and eat) is a huge tray of chicken enchiladas. Chicken, white cheese sauce, freshly made corn tortillas and roasted green chilies. Love!

5. Didn’t Trisha (the person who posted this meme prior to Care) ask some awesome questions?
Yes, she did! You can see them here.

6. What book would you absolutely hate to see get parodied?
Lolita. Can you imagine? In my worse dreams, it’s done as a musical.

7. Do you have a favorite number?
I do have a favorite number. It happens to be 5. I was born on the 5th of September and for whatever reason, 5 has always been good to me.

8. Tell me a nonfiction book idea subject that you think I should write a book on because there isn’t one already?
Is there a book on Curling yet? It’s a sport that always catches my attention, yet I know nothing about it.

9. Did you like my answers to No. 5 for book that should be H.S. curricula? (She answered, The Book Thief and The Wind-up Bird Chronicle)
Since I adore Haruki Murakami, I must say…yes!! However, I never finished The Book Thief. I found myself bored with it. I know I didn’t give it enough time to get into it though, so I plan to try it again at some point.

10. Red or white?
I hope you are talking wine here. If so, RED. Preferably a nice Pinot Noir.

11. Would you be embarrassed to receive a postcard with artwork by Dali? ya know – the erotic variety?  I have some if you want one. I’m kinda embarrassed to send.
I wouldn’t be embarrassed to get one, but with the kids in the house and the little one in charge of mail pick-up, I would have to pass on one. However, my favorite of his is Women Forming a Skull.

This is where I am shamefully bad. I don’t mind playing, but I don’t like to tag so I’m not tagging anyone in this post.  I figure if you want to answer one of the questions, you’ll do so in the comments, you know… to make it interesting.

  1. I loved this answer: What book would you absolutely hate to see get parodied?
    Lolita. Can you imagine? In my worse dreams, it’s done as a musical. (As a musical…egad!)

    Dali is one of my favorites…he had such a creepy mind.

  2. I also really like the number 5 for some reason, and I don’t drink beer because I don’t have a taste for it. I have a friend who can tell the difference between two different beers blindfolded, but I am not that talented!

    1. Such a nice thing to say. I read your comment and almost cried. I feel as if I am close to putting something down in writing. I really don’t have anything stopping me, except myself.

        1. Your comment made me smile. So glad you would be willing to attend a book signing because otherwise… I’d hear nothing but crickets 😉

  3. YAY! I love enchiladas but have only made them once or twice in my life. don’t know why that is but it seems so complicated or cheating when I use a kit.
    I hope we are safe from a musical Humbert Humbert. I rented the Kubrick movie and was astonished at how they even managed a movie of such a thought-driven book. It must not have been good because I barely remember much of it at all.

  4. I don’t like tagging people for these memes either. I’ve never had beer, but I craved it/loved the smell during my second pregnancy too. It was the oddest thing because I normally can’t stand the smell of beer.

  5. I love your answers. You know, I craved beer when I was pregnant with my first (and I hate, HATE beer) weird. And thanks, ew, I have Lolita, the musical stuck in my head. Bleeck. I not a tagger either, I don’t forward , or re-post either.

  6. This meme is making it’s rounds, isn’t it? I may do it someday. I’ll just wait until everyone has done it, and then I’ll pick the best questions from each! Some of them (Trisha’s!) are hard!

  7. These question memes are fun but I don’t like tagging people. I’m not a beer drinker though I like Bass and especially Guiness but I really like wine and a good Pinot Noir is wonderful!

    Lolita as a musical is so disturbing but it wouldn’t surprise me. They tried with Titanic so anything goes. I mean whose bright idea was it to take a tragedy in which people died and make into a musical. That is in such poor taste.

    I love writing letters to friends. Nobody writes back! lol

  8. I don’t think I’ve written a letter with my own hand in ages. It is a lost art. That is kind of sad. And I love your answer to Lolita — The Musical. I could see this actually happening though … sadly.

  9. One of my classes is going to tackle The Book Thief after Spring Break…I hope they are able to get into it.
    I love red wine but it gives me a headache 😦 Probably why I’d rather just have a boring glass of Chardonnay or better yet a shot or two of something a little stronger 😉

  10. I received this too (different questions) and if I post my answers I will be an end point too. Hopefully I will find time this weekend to create a post. 🙂

    You had some great questions to answer. I have no book ideas (or desire), do not like beer at all… my favorite number has been four since I was a little girl. My son just happened to be born on the 4th!

    Have a great day

    1. I am horrible. I am a cream sauce lover so anything drenched in cream and cheese is fine by me. Now I am going to have to make these enchiladas this weekend because I have done nothing but think about them ever since I posted about them.

  11. Oh, I didn’t even think about wine when I read the “red or white” question! Duh. Not a drinker. LOL

    Lolita is an excellent choice for books not to be parodied, I’m sure. I’ve yet to read it, but I can’t imagine it could go anywhere decent.
