If you haven't seen the game of blogger tag going around, here's how it works: one blogger 'tags' another just like in the children's game. The 'tagged' blogger has to answer 10 questions about themselves and then tag 8 more bloggers.
I'm going to take a tip from the kind folks who tagged us, Karen of Tricks for Treats and Julie of The Daily Dog Blog since they were each also tagged twice, and do double duty by answering the questions for both me and Bella. (If I get tagged yet again in the meantime, you might even learn something about Jan before all this is over... ;)
- Describe Yourself In 7 Words
Bella: Playful, charming, sweet, smart, fearful, resilient, neurotic.
Leslie: Neurotic, optimistic, idealistic, passionate, serious, perfectionist, dreamer.
- What Keeps You Up At Night
Bella: Thunderstorms, when mom steps on me getting out of bed, unfamiliar noises.
Leslie: My head. (Sleep? What's sleep?)
- Who Would You Like To Be?
Bella: Somebody calm and confident.
Leslie: Somebody calm and confident.
- What Are You Wearing Right Now?
LOL - who wrote this questionaire?
Bella: My collar - I don't like it when they take it off.
Leslie: The winter "uniform": jeans, turtleneck and hoodie.
- What Scares You?
Bella: Uh, scared-y dog here so, you know, everything? Okay, more specifically: thunder, wind, unexpected noises, snowblowers, the garage, things that weren't there before, the dog walk, the teeter totter, other dogs, people, bees, flies, horseflies, Bailey (the neighbor's dog), barrels, sticks, poles... Shall I go on?
Leslie: Spiders, failure, fire, death. (What? I warned you I was a "serious" sort.)
- The Best and Worst of Blogging
Best: Lots of people think I'm cute and I don't even have to get anywhere near them.
Worst: Mom's at that darn computer all. the. time.
Best: The community.
Worst: Not having enough hours in a day to keep up with the community.
- The Last Website I Visited
The Daily Dog Blog and Tricks for Treats, of course!
- What Is The One Thing I Would Change About Myself?
Bella: I would be braver.
Leslie: I would be kinder.
- Slankets Yes or No?
Bella: Uh, what huh?
Leslie: Uh, what huh?
Neither Bella nor I were familiar with the whole "slanket" phenomenon before seeing these tag posts. I think we are in agreement that this isn't really our thing. :]
- Tell Us Something About The Dog(s)/Cat(s)/Etc That Tagged You.
Cali, of The Daily Dog Blog, is a beautiful girl with long black hair and the most expressive brown eyes. She lives with a bunch of cats so you know she's gotta be a very good and patient girl.
Pearl, of Tricks for Treats, is a very pretty mixed-breed rescue dog who sometimes drives her mom just a little crazy. (We can relate!) She's got tons of energy and keeps her family on their toes.
Interestingly enough, both Pearl and Cali have allergies and both are the first dogs of their families.
And now to tag 8 others...
Like everyone else, I find this part pretty difficult. I'm not sure who all has already been tagged and I don't like to make more work for folks who are all already over-worked, stressed-out and appallingly busy.
So here's the deal: if you've already been tagged, link to your tag post in the comments so other folks can go read up on you and your tagged blogs. And if you're just too crazy busy to participate, don't stress it. This stuff's supposed to be fun, right?
So without further ado:
