Questions Meme

Lana G. over at Above the Clouds tagged me for a 5 questions meme. She asks me 5 questions, I answer and then I make up my own 5 questions and tag 5 people. The interesting thing about this meme is the questions always change so in theory you can be tagged numerous times and never have to answer the same thing twice.

So here's Lana's questions:

1. Are you a morning person or an evening person? I'm definitely an evening person. I would way rather stay up late reading and putzing around than to have to get up early. Which makes it really quite difficult with my job seeing I have to be up early and smiling ready to greet moms and kids at the door. And it's interesting being married to a morning person because he's already been up for quite awhile and raring to go when I come stumbling into the kitchen with eyes half shut looking for that coffee.

2. If you had the chance to travel by boat, train and plane on your next vacation, name the destination you would choose for each of these methods of transportation. I would get on a plane and head over for a tour of Europe. I would go by train from country to country to see all the lovely old towns and old sections of European cities ending up in Greece where I would go on ship on a wonderful Mediterrean cruise.

3. Other than Jesus, which biblical character would you like to meet and why? I've always held Esther deep in my heart. She was such a strong young lady, to do what she did. I would love to talk to her and find out what she was going through in her heart as she had to go through the year of preparation in the midst of all the other girls, and then having the courage to approach the king when it could have meant her death. All with a plan in mind to save her people. The courage she displayed in her life blows me away.

4. Do you have any brothers and sisters? How many? One sister two years younger.

5. Do you prefer the beach or the mountains and why? I've only been to one ocean beach in my life and that was to Oahu. The only beaches we have around here are lake beaches. And I do love them, but I'm not one to lay out in the sun all day long. The mountains are what call my name. The beauty and majesty and awesomeness of them immediately make me sense the presence of God through His creation. I love the heat of the sun but the coolness of air you get with mountains, I love hiking the forest trails although not far off the beaten path as I'm afraid of bears. But if I was going with someone who knew what they were doing, I'd love to get onto less traveled hiking trails. I love the waterfalls and lakes that show up around the bend surrounded by the incredible height of the mountains, and the different colors you get in the lakes up in the mountains. It's all breathtaking to me.

Great questions, Lana! Okay here's mine. I'll make them a touch easier than last time, Barb. No "Survivor" questions. ;v)

1. If you could meet any famous person in the world, be it political leader, celebrity, novelist, missionary or preacher, etc. who would it be?

2. What is your all time favorite novel and why is it your favorite?

3. If you could go on any game show, past or present, which would it be?

4. If you could obliterate one tv show off the current programming schedule which would it be?

5. What is your dream job?

There now that's not too bad is it? I tag Gail, Eden, Cyndi, Robin , & Annie.


Cyndi said...

Fun answers! I enjoyed learning more about you. I loved your answer for #2. I'd do that in a heartbeat!

Thanks for the tag! I'm headed out the door until this afternoon, so I'll be "pondering" my answers to your fun questions. :)

Once Upon a Dream... said...

Cool answers! I love learning more about you. My answers are up. Thanx for tagging me, I love playing along!


Lana G! said...

Esther - Good Answer. She was a brave one indeed. One of my favorite stories right after Ruth.

Thanks for playing and you came up with some great questions!!

Robin said...

How fun to get to know you better this way. And thanks for the tag- I'll start working on it!

Tammy said...

I loved your answers, Susanne! You explained them all so well!
And I am right there with you on most of them- especially #1! ;)

Org Junkie said...

You know I live right on the ocean so I definitely think you should come visit me. Oh except I don't have the hot weather to go with it but you know we could stare at it from inside the vehicle while we try to keep warm :)

Sandra said...

Great answers, this was fun to read :)

Just dropping by to say hi to everyone :)


Beck said...

Your answers were great - and so were your questions! My husband and I are currently debating over which show we'd have removed... hmmmmm....
(and whenever you mention Esther to The Girl, she starts singing this Esther song from Veggie Tales. Okaaaay....)

Jen said...

interesting meme

momrn2 said...

The more I learn about you, the more I realize we are so much alike!! Somehow... I'm not terribly surprised by that. :-)

Susie said...

This was fun to read. Loved your answers!

Barb said...

Whew! You scared me.

Boy, all my answers to your questions are opposite yours. I'm a morning person. Can't keep my eyes open past 10 p.m. You know I'm a beach person. And I practically live in the mountains. LOL

And you know if I could travel anywhere I wanted, I'd be heading to the Outer Banks. Of course, with my luck, I'd arrive in the middle of hurricane season. :-)

Great questions you're passing forward. Especially the game show question. Remember Queen For a Day?

Scratchin' the Surface said...

Such fun to read these. Esther - what a great answer. I cant wait to meet Ruth Bell Graham someday, and the actual Proverbs 31 woman!

Shalee said...

Hellooooo! Plane to Kansas would be just as exciting, you know...

I liked your answers to these questions!
