Tag!

Hannah Grace tagged me with these questions! She has a great blog, you should check it out.

First, the rules are: Please tag five people and do not tag the one who tagged you. And if you would not like to answer a certain question, simply change it to one you like and answer that.

#1-What song are you currently listening to a lot?

Vanilla Twilight by Owl City
Owl City is one of my favorite artists. The lyrics of his songs are so poetic.
"If my voice could reach back through the past, I'd whisper in your ear... darling, I wish you were here."

#2- What is the best book you have read recently?

The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
This is a great book for people who like mysteries, or for anyone who can read. : )

#3-Do you sing a lot?

Yes, mostly in the car by myself.

#4-Sweet or salty?

Salty, if I have to choose. I like salty mixed with sweet, like a bowl of hot popcorn with m&ms thrown in, or a Take Five bar, which has peanut butter and caramel and pretzels in it. Mmmm.

#5-What is your favorite hobby?

Reading is my favorite. Then writing, blogging, watching movies, and sewing.
I know watching movies doesn't seem like a hobby, but I like to be critical and analyze them as I watch, which drives my family crazy but is really fun.

#6-What books have you read at least 3 times?

An Old Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott,
Mara; Daughter of the Nile by Eloise Jarvis Mcgraw,
The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare,
Carry On Mr. Bowditch by Jean Lee Latham,
Johnny Tremain by Esther Forbes,
Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery...

And so many more. I should start compiling a list of my favorite books (which would be lengthy), so that I can share it with you, my blogging friends. I will start making a list and make a page for it on here somewhere.

#7-What sites do you always visit when you get on the Internet?

Facebook, Twitter, Blogger.
In that order, not because I like Facebook best, but because I am saving my favorite for last. : )

#8-What were the last things you bought?

Cough medicine, fruit-flavored cough drops, green tea, chicken soup, vegtable soup and cookies. I have a cold today and I was stocking up on all the things you need when you're sick.

#9-Which fictional character do you think you are most like?

I think am most like Elinor Dashwood from Sense and Sensibility.

#10-Favorite earliest memory?

Hmm... hiding under the weeping willow tree at our old house when I was really little.

#11-What do you do to change your mood?

Reading usually works. It takes me out of my problems for a few minutes, so when I come back, I have a better perspective of how important they are and I figure out that I was grumpy over nothing.

#12-What was the last meal you ate?

Lunch; we had BLTs with turkey bacon and guacomole. It was yummy.

#13-Do you want to learn another language?

I would like to learn French, because it's just such a beautiful language. I would also like to learn Spanish.

#14-Five things you can’t live without?

1. Lots of books

2. Coffee

3. My family

4. Friends

5. Chocolate

#15- Find the closest book to you, and flip to page 54. What is the first sentence in the 2nd paragraph?

Emily Cilmbs by Lucy Maud Montgomery

"As for Teddy, he was thinking that Emily looked very sweet in the pale moonshine, with her fringed, mysterious eyes and the little dark love-curls clinging to her ivory neck."

Please note that the Emily series (Emily of New Moon, Emily Climbs, Emily's Quest) is excellent. I like it even better than Anne of Green Gables because Emily is a writer and she thinks like a writer.

#16-What is something you would like to say right now?

I don't like being sick.

#17-What are you looking forward to?

Hanging out with friends on Sunday afternoon.

Now, tag five people.
Take some time and visit these blogs, they're all wonderful.

1. Sarah, from Stardust Caught.

2. Hannah, from Hannah's Corner.

3. Darby, from Picklehopper Centre.

4. Allison Elizabeth, from Girl of the Prairie.

5. Grace, from Grace's Garden Walk.

Thanks again for tagging me, Hannah Grace, this was really fun!

I love Owl City! He is such an amazing artist. Have you tried listening to Coldplay? They are different from Owl City, but their lyrics are so poetic and is a band I love. ♥
