I keep seeing friends doing the hodgepodge, so I thought I'd give it a whirl :)
Also, I though it would be easy.
1. April showers bring May flowers or so the saying goes. Has your April been filled with showers?
Uh... no. We've had temperatures in the 80s and then in the 50s, with no rain at all. Our last rain was in March.
|Last rainy day we had.|
Do you carry an umbrella, wear a slicker, or make a run for it?
Pffft.... I just saunter through it, unless it's pouring down like a monsoon or I'm dressed up, Usually, I'm looking at everyone else like they're nuts.
It's water people and unless you're the wicked witch of the west, there's no chance of melting, so calm down.
I do have a vintage umbrella, but I've yet to use it.
Besides rain, what else has filled your April?
Mostly visiting new places with John and spending Easter with my family.
2. What's something you could you give a 30-minute presentation on at a moment's notice and with zero preparation?
The movie Gone with the Wind or the Victorian era in general and no, I'm not kidding. It's a sickness.
3. Share with us a favorite food memory from childhood.
Making poundcake with my grandma Bonnie. I was the sifter:)
4. What's a song you thought you knew the lyrics to, but later discovered you were wrong?
Hotel California, but I know every single word now ;)
5. According to one travel website, the most overrated tourist attractions in America are-
Niagara Falls (NY) Hollywood Walk of Fame (California)
Times Square (NYC)
Seattle Space Needle (WA)
Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market (Boston)
How many of these have you seen in person?
Only the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Times Square.
I grew up in LA, so we went to Hollywood all the time and I lived in Virginia at one point, so NY wasn't too far to visit.
Neither one is all that and a bag of chips, honestly. Both of them are dirty and filled with weirdos and hookers. But totally go visit them. Don't let me stop you ;)
Did you feel like a tourist?
Did you care?
I would have if I did. I used to try my best to fit in, so I didn't look like a dork. My mother ingrained that in me. Now... I could care less. I embrace my dorkiness ;)
Tell us about a place (not on the list) you've visited that might be considered a tourist trap, but you love it anyway.
Knott's Berry Farm,
and The Fun Zone on Balboa Island.
It's in my California blood.
Carmel and Monterey. I lived in Pebble Beach later in life, so they were right down the street.
6. Your signature clothing item?
1950s house dresses or rolled jeans and a black t-shirt. And almost always... Keds.
7. What's an experience you've had you think everyone should experience at least once? Why?
Raising something from a baby, or taking care of someone other than yourself, whether it's an animal, a child or something else that can't take care of itself It teaches you responsibility like nothing else can.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
This was way harder than I thought! And my apologies for being late on my first try.
