Prompted

I’ve succumbed.  For this post, I’m following prompts.*

“Tell us about a blog post you didn’t publish.”

Well, first of all, I have good reason for not publishing the posts I don’t publish.  I don’t hold posts back because they’re Pulitzer-worthy.  I hold posts back because they’re boring or overly personal or rude.  So I’m going to say it’s probably not a good idea to “tell you about” those.

I never delete such posts, however, so if I do eventually find a way to make them better, they might get pulled off the bench after all.

“If you could quit one bad habit instantly without difficulty, which would it be?”

I would like to be worse at coming up with excuses for why I can’t/shouldn’t go to the gym.

“Are you a morning person or a night owl?”

See previous post.

“What is your favorite hour of the day?”

Sophomore year of college, my roommate and I used to drop into our beds in the wee hours after hours of studying.  She would always sigh deeply and say, “Best part of the day.”  I always agreed.

“Name five things in your refrigerator right now and how you feel about them.”

Yogurt: strong aversion

Milk: pro

String cheese: pro

Spinach: con, but I eat it anyway because Dr. Oz says

Leftover stew: Ruby bribe

“If you had to be trapped inside a movie for 5 days, which movie would you pick?”

Is there anyone on the planet who wouldn’t answer with Harry Potter?  I think not.

I would steal Hermione’s time turner and stay for a lot longer than five days, though …

“Tell us what you’ve learned so far about daily blogging.”

I hate it.  I would like to give up, but I’m afraid that will be viewed as a serious character flaw, and c’mon, future employers could be reading this.  Impressions count.

“If you had to switch your first name, what name would you choose and why?”

I’ve always liked my name.  It’s unique, but not Apple or North West or Blue Ivy unique.

I do think it would be neat to have been named after someone, though.  My parents chose Holly because they liked it.  Not the party story I was crossing my fingers for whilst in utero.

“Tell us about your writing space.  Where do you write your blog posts?”

I favor comfort while I write.  This means that when I blog, I’m almost always in bed, in sweats, and being plied with grapes by the ever-faithful Ruby.

“If you found on million dollars in the morning and had to spend it by nightfall, what would you do with the money?”

Two words: ball pit.
