I hereby heartily thank my kindred spirit Firebonnet for nominating me for the Liebster Award. I have enjoyed her blog from the moment I found it and it has given me lots of ideas, direction and inspiration for my own blog. Here are the questions she asked me and my answers:

Amy Adams or Isla Fisher; co-star Sean Penn or Sam Shephard
What would the movie be called?
Fasten your Seatbelt. Or, alternatively “Why are you Laughing, It’s Not Funny.”
If you could have any ability you don’t have now, what would it be?
To be a songbird, to be able to sing, I mean really belt it out
If you were sent to a deserted island for a year, and all your basic needs met, what five things would you take with you?
Oh, geez. Do people count? My husband, my son, my parents and 1 dog?
If you could be famous for something what would it be and why?
