~*~ My Q & A Asked to Me ~*~

(Norma’s answers and Brenda’s answers are noted below)

If you never had to sleep in your whole life, what would you do with all that extra time?

Norma:  Being an insomniac already I have a whole lot of extra time to READ!

Brenda:  I would read!

What fictional place would you most like to visit?

Norma:  Have no idea! I don’t really put myself into fictional places as I have no imagination whatsoever.  But, I have often wished that I was just like Bewitched!  lol 

Brenda:  No idea.

What’s your favorite genre of music, or your favorite band?

Norma:  My absolute favourite is Country.  I grew up listening to Country and it stayed with me into adulthood.

Brenda:  I have no favourite.  I like silence and prefer to listen to a book.

What’s your favorite song right now?

Norma:  Anything by Keith Urban!

Brenda:  None.  It really has been along time since I have listened to any music.

What’s your favorite book you’ve read this year?

Norma:  Oh, I have read quite a few good books so far this year!  But, I think my absolute favourite was The One Man and All The Ugly and Wonderful Things.

Brenda:  I have quite a few too and would say All the Ugly and Wonderful Things   would be a favourite.  This question really had me thinking.

Are you an early riser or do you like to sleep in?

Norma:  Most definitely sleep-in!  My best sleep is in the early morning.  Just too bad I have to wake up to go to work!  lol

Brenda:  I am up early and love mornings. It’s my favourite time to read.

What’s your favorite childhood book or fairytale?

Norma:  Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs

Brenda:  Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs

What’s most likely to send you off on a rant?

Norma:  Not too much will send me off into a rant. I am a go with the flow kinda gal and accept things for just the way they are.  But, I guess maybe one little thing that might send me off on a rant would be being misunderstood.

Brenda:  Drama…..I really need to keep my life free of it.

What’s the farthest you’ve ever been from home?

Norma:  I have been very lucky to visit some amazing places.  Hawaii and Prince Edward Island.

Brenda:  Europe.  I have been to a few places there. 

What is something that a ton of people are obsessed with but you just don’t get the point of?

Norma:  Haha, I tend to be obsessed over quite a few things that I love!  Books & purses come to mind!!  But, I guess what I don’t get the point of would be the obsession over celebrities.

Brenda:  I like Norma’s answer! 😊

Would you rather have an evening out, or a night in?

Norma:  Evening out with my hubby!  I tend to spend a lot of time alone during the day so an evening out is pretty special to me.

Brenda:  Evening at home with my family.

    1. Why thank you, Christine! We are alike in so many ways but so different too as you noticed in our answers. BTW, I really wanted to nominate you for this award but for the life of me I couldn’t figure out if you have a blog or not. I am so new at blogging….and am still learning my way around WordPress. I always look forward to your comments! 🙂

  1. Thanks, Norma! I guest blog for Dee over at noveldeelights, but thankfully am not in charge of a blog. I don’t know how you guys do it!! I love your blog and the fact that it’s a tag team between you two sisters (always wanted a sister).
