One of those quizzes

My Blog Name is: Mary Grace/Books and Bairns

But people usually call me: Depends on who they are, now doesn't it? Dh calls me "Woman," dc call me "Mom," or (my preference) "Momma."

I was born: In a rather sooty part of southeastern Michigan

Until I wound up in: The more mountainous part of the wet Pacific NW

My occupation is/was: editor on a variety of projects that I now consider far too boring to relate to most folks. But at the time, boy, was it fun!

My favorite color is: red.

My favorite hobby is: writing, reading and cuddling with my honey.

My favorite season is: fall, when the leaves change.

A few favorite books are: "To Kill A Mockingbird," by Harper Lee, "The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood," by Rebecca Wells, "Oral History," by Lee Smith, "East of Eden," by Steinbeck, "Rainey," by Clyde Edgerton, most of the "New Stories from the South" collections.

Some of my favorite music is: (I admit that I'm all over the board here, people, so be prepared!) Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Third Day, Travis, the Beatles, the Verve, Wilco, bluegrass gospel, CCR ... (have I scared you yet?)

My favorite kinds of movies are: independent films, documentaries, epic adventures (such as LOTR), or silly comedies with little to no redeeming value (such as "The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.")

My favorite food indulgence is: chocolate molten cake.

My favorite drink indulgence is: hot chocolate, but friends have turned me on to pumpkin spice lattes and caramel macchiattos. Too bad I am too poor to indulge regularly!

My favorite dessert indulgence is: ummmm.... chocolate molten cake? Or J's pumpkin spice bars. YUM!

One weird thing about me is: I can pick up and drop accents at will.

One of my fantasies is: living on acreage, running a little farm and raisin' babies.

One of my pet peeves is: people who just don't get it.

That was a fun quiz! I get it! I get it! LOL!

Um... I think it's safe to say that you and I would get along VERY well IRL. I completely understand your music choices, for one. Pet peeve, weird thing, etc. We are very similar.

Karla, how'd I know that you'd get it? :-)

Hi Mary Grace

Thank you for your feedback on my post regarding American history materials. Now I have MORE choices to consider! :)

I look forward to getting to know you better through your blog - I noticed you mentioned living in the "more mountainous part of the wet Pacific NW" - where? We're on the Kitsap Peninsula in Navyland... i.e., Silverdale. Perhaps we're neighbors.

BTW, I can pick up and drop accents at will, too, often without intending to do so. My daughter does the same!

I also share your fantasy of living on acreage, running a little farm and raisin' babies... I tell folks I have "visions of Little House on the Prairie dancing through my head."
