    1. Steady on Hook 🙂 lol
      Answer 10 could get you
      into deep water… Well
      only if you like a good
      swim… Vampire Lover
      is sharpening her Fangs
      at this very moment 🙂




  4. I could tell you what a Slanket but then you would be
    walking around without your towels… Just kidding it
    doesn’t equate to walking around in the Niff… Well it
    could I guess but then if that were true it could get a
    bit too wicked especially on those pegging out days 🙂 😉

    Have a wicked one Jo 🙂

  5. Hi Jo and thanks for including me in this post. I’ve decided to take inspiration from The Hook and post my reply here too, I will also do one on my own blogpage – the reason being: you have more followers than me ;-D So here are my ten answers….

    1. Describe yourself in seven words.
    Kind, mother, musician, sexy, joker, unpredictable, emotive

    2. What keeps you up at Night?
    Wondering why the hell am I lying next to such a miserable bugger?

    3. Who would I like to be?
    I quite like being who I already am.

    4. What am I wearing right now?
    Never mind that, I just hope no-one comes to the front door right now….

    5. What scares me?
    Water scares me, I can swim but it still bothers me. Getting lost scares me – that’s a thought though, does it count..?

    6. The best and worst of blogging.
    The best of blogging: the wonderful community that is out there…..The worst of blogging: no-one takes a blind bit of notice when I write and post a 3,000 word masterpiece!

    7. The last website I visited
    (due to the frost here in England..) : I dare you to click it…..hahahahaha

    8. What is the one thing I would change about myself.
    I’d like a lower forehead, mine’s too high – makes me look like a boffin!

    9. Slankets yes or no?
    Slankets? I’m another slanket virgin, who the hell made that word up?! I’ll say yes because I’m getting the impression slankets = comfort and maybe a bit of luxury.

    10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you!
    What do i know about Jo? She’s awesome! I don’t know why I connected initially but the more I’ve got to know her I personally feel we tread a very similar path such as theatre connections and working with children, australia/nz – my ex lives in Perth, Aus, sense of humour…, even the stumps in our street(s) it’s uncanny and also we have some iffy issues with our upbringing/family. I really like Jo and hope one day I get to meet this fabulous woman who is an inspiration to so many people here in blogland.


    1. Why are you lying next to a miserable buggar – hoist him outside…
      There is nothing wrong with your forehead – it’s a lovely forehead…
      Man I LOVE you number 10…hehehehehe


  6. YAYY we get to learn even more about you! 😀 I didn’t know what a slanket was, either, so of course I looked it up and it’s like a Snuggie! Only bigger. Snuggies and Slankets and Towels, oh my! lol I like the seven words you chose for yourself, but of course, seven words doesn’t BEGIN to describe how wonderful you are!


  7. Hi Jo…thanks for the tag! I’ll have to work on this over the weekend…question ten has me shaking in my boots. It looks like Hook may have gotten himself into trouble with that one…the image of Vampire Lover sharpening her fangs…Would you like me to follow others and post my answers here and on my blog?


    1. Ummmmmm – that depends on your answer to question 10…hehehehe
      I hope Hook is still kicking too !!!
      I’d loove it if you stuck it on here as well.


  8. Here ya go JO. Thanks for the tag and the questions! 🙂

    1) Describe yourself in seven words.
    Childish, curious, swashbuckling, happy, humorous, passionate, honorable

    2) What keeps you up at Night?
    My Mind. My body loves to sleep, and takes every opportunity to avail itself in that endeavor. My mind likes to think, ponder, create, wonder and experiment when it really should be sleeping. I think I need to get the two of them separate state rooms on my Pirate ship.

    3) Who would I like to be?
    I know this sounds like self aggrandizement, but I’m happy to be me. My life rocks, I rock. There are a wealth of people I admire past and present. People I would love to have known, spent time with or emulate in some manner. My experiences though, the wonderful, horrible and the mundane created who I am. I think I did a pretty good job on this Pirate building thing.

    4) What am I wearing right now?
    Just two things, shorts and a Hawaiian shirt. It is winter in San Diego after all.

    5) What scares me?
    OK, that’s the second time this week someone has asked me that question. Is the Universe planning something I should know about? Anyone………

    6) The best and worst of blogging.
    The Best: the people. The Worst: finding time to visit and comment on all the blogs I would like to.

    7) The last website I visited
    A Pirate can’t live on rum alone.

    8) What is the one thing I would change about myself.
    I would love to stop procrastinating, I can just never seem to find the time.

    9) Slankets yes or no?
    What, and hide my manly self behind 30 yards of fuzzy fabric? Nope.

    10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you!
    Jo is deviously mischievous, has a sharp wit and an amazing sense of humor. She’s wonderfully passionate about so many things, and has a sense of curiosity that might even match mine, which is more than most people should be allowed to have. She has a weakness though, and you could get her to do pretty much anything (not everything) if you could figure out a way to get TB’s in her house. Just say’n.
