#100 and Tagged!


Okay, the party's over now. :D

I was tagged by Lena, Kara and and Heidi Anne! Thanks so much, girls!

I guess I will answer all your questions... ;) I can't get the "tagged" graphic to come up on my blog, so, um, just pretend it's there? (If you wanna do this, you can grab the graphic from one of the blogs that tagged me! :))

Ze Rules:
1) You must answer the eleven questions the tagger has given you and make eleven questions for the people you are going to tag.
2) Next, tag eleven more bloggers.
3) Tell the people you have tagged that you tagged them.
4) No tagging back!

(Oh, I reversed step #2 and #3. Oops).

1. What is your favorite book(s)? A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens 
2.  Have you ever gone swimming in the Atlantic, Pacific, or any of the great lakes? Nope!
3.  Have you ever flown (commercially, privately)? Yes
4.  How old were you when you had your first crush? Eight
5.  Star Wars or Star Trek? Star Trek
6.  RANDOM  What's your favorite pen or marker brand? Um...good question! I guess BIC!?
7.  Have you seen "The Hobbit" yet, or do you not plan to see it at all? Yes, I've seen it! Though most of you have already seen it, my review of The Hobbit can be found here
8.  Who's your favorite author? C.S. Lewis, I s'pose
9.  What national land marks have you been to? Mt. Rushmore :)
10.  How long have you been blogging? A little over a year
11.  Disney or Dreamworks? Disney (because of Narnia! :)

HEIDI ANNE (her writing matches my blog design, too! :))
1. Have you ever been out of the country? Yes (I lived in England for 4 years, and I was also born in China)
2. If you could, what country/continent would be your choice? Europe! 
3. How long have you been a Christian? 10 years
4. What is your favorite kind of music? Broadway musicals
5. Do you plan to ever write a book? Yes, Lordwilling! 
6. Have you ever been tagged in something like this? Yep ;)
7. If you have ever seen a superhero movie, what would be your favorite? Hmmm... Does The Incredibles count? :) 
8. What is your favorite Bible verse? Jeremiah 29:11
9. What Bible verse was the one that got your attention about getting saved? This is a great question! I asked Jesus to be my Savior when I was very young, and I don't really remember it. So, though I don't remember a particular verse that caused me to make my salvation decision, I will say that the condition / promise verses in the Bible are very special to me because for many years I was unsure of my salvation. Now when I share those verses with others, I am glad that I don't have to worry any longer about whether or not I am saved, because Jesus promises to save those who call on His name. (Romans 10:13)
10. What is your favorite hymn? Probably The Love of God or Am I a Soldier of the Cross? The former I really love because of the third verse, and the latter because it was a favorite of mine as a child!
11. If you have ever seen a musical, what would be your favorite? I have seen a musical... I saw Les Miserables when it came on tour; recently I saw a college production of Little Women, the Musical. My favorite musical would probably be Les Miserables, followed closely by A Tale of Two Cities (which I have never seen on stage).


1. Do you prefer the country or the city? Hmmm...well, I kind of live in the city, but I really enjoy visiting my relatives who live on a farm! I guess I'll go with city, though.
2. Fave blog? I don't really have a fave, I love all your lovely blogs! :) 
3. What is one quote this week that has inspired you most? Hmmm...this week? Well, one of my favorite singers has a pretty epic quote on a video of his... the quote is: "You don't realize sometimes that you've been dreaming too small until you see what has been possible all along." -- Josh Groban
4. Makeup or nail polish? Ahh, hard choice! If I had to chose only one, :D
5. Do you have a big family or small? Small. Muy pequeno. 
7. What is one unique thing about you? I have really enjoyed writing ever since I was really young. 
8. How many states have you been to? I have lived in 2 different states; I have probably visited, or been driven through perhaps 10!?  
9. Have you met any of your online friends? Yep! I was blessed with being able to meet Talia a couple of years ago! 
10. What books are you currently reading? The Bible, Return of the King and Les Miserables :)
11. Have you ever been somewhere other then the USA? Yep! I was born in China and also lived in England for 4 years

Ooh, that was fun!

Yikes, I've probably given myself a gazillion blog views, clicking back and forth...

Oh yeah, and since this post is already ridiculously long...

{Listening to} Hollow Talk by Josh Groban... his latest album, All That Echoes doesn't come out until February 5th, but currently you can stream his album for free (for a limited time)! I thought I'd only listen to Song #1 and #2...but I gave in. I'm now on song... #9. Yikes.
{About to} either walk upstairs and eat chocolate, or look at lamps... my lamp kind of died... at least it's seriously ill.
{Excited for} Sorry, I'm gonna talk about JG again. JG is live-streaming his concert in New York City on Monday... and it's playing at different movie theaters around the country. So, this Grobanite is planning to attend... (Lordwilling)
