My Nest Party Rocked !




My nest rock and rolled so hard I was scared it might fall from the tree! Tuesday's Question was so much fun! Those of you I thought I knew well, I now know better, and those I didn't know, I will not soon forget! You are a great bunch of people!

Thanks to everyone who stopped and answered not just one, but four Tuesday's questions! I feel like I know everyone of you better and your answers were close to what I would've thought. What's amazing about blogging, is how well you get to know the people you correspond with each day, in much the same way you would if spoke to them each day in person. It's so exciting and even more wonderful to realize you can actually have a weekly party!

You rockers know how to have fun! You're special people, not just for sharing information about yourselves, but for taking the time to think through and organize your answers. I was impressed with your good natured attitudes and spirit for honesty and fun!

Thanks and thanks and thanks again for making yesterday special, in addition to stopping to say hello. Here are the questions and answers with a link to the wonderful blogs who came to my question party. Please take the time to click the link to their blogs after reading their comment. I know some of already know each other, but wouldn't you love to know what the other bloggers think of your answers?


Instead of writing a review like I did on the first two Tuesday's Questions, I thought it better to show my other readers how great each of you are, then let them judge for themselves.

So, happy clinking and linking and reading and be sure to return to my place in the sun, well, tomorrow! In addition to next week for Tuesday's Question.

Again, please excuse the colored font it helps to distinguish the different comments. Each blog is in a different color. Enjoy!

What Character Do You Identify With The Most In A Book Or Movie?


Dirty Harry Callahan - I loved it when he said: "You have to ask yourself one question: do I feel lucky. Well, do ya, punks?" Since I dealt with punks for 25 years it just fit.

A)What situation comedy character would you're friends say you're most alike?

Roseanne Barr - Like she is protrayed in the Roseanne TV series. She was strong and forceful. I often have the same wit too.

What well known wealthy person is living the lifestyle you would in their position?

No one. My life is already perfect, free of the media and the large ego.

What Hollywood star or famous person have people said you resemble?

Billy Jean King, but I can't see it.

Dawn from Twisted Sister Totally Pissed Off

Okay but don't laugh! I'm gonna pick Jane from "Jane Eyre".

situation comedy character: Deborah from Everybody loves Raymond... I so get her!

well known wealthy person: Oprah is a really good choice.

famous person have people said you resemble: No one ever said I resembled anyone famous!

This is a fun one Ann!

A) Ann of Green Gables, and for years I was stuck babysitting twins while being lost in my imagination so it's actually kind of weird, lol..and she's even a writer..

B)I'm not sure which one but since you used the Friends show as an example...I'd be Ross's sister..what's her name?..the one that drives everyone crazy...yeah..that's me.

C) Oprah!!!

D) Geena Davis is the only one I somewhat resemble.

Cool questions Ann, I'm coming back later to read everyone's questions!



Polli, from Polliwog's Pond

Great questions Ann! This took a lot of thought.


My answers:

MAIN QUESTION What Character Do You Identify With The Most In A Book Or Movie?

I've never identified with a fictional character in a book for some reason. I do read select fiction, not a lot, as I'm a solid non-fiction girl. The memoir is my favorite genre of book to read. The two people I have identified with the strongest as I read their biographies were the late Kurt Cobain (of Nirvana fame) and the late Eleanor Roosevelt (of historical fame). As I read about their lives, their actions, and their thoughts, I felt as if I had met my soulmates.


A What situation comedy character would your friends say you're most like?

Just like you Ann, I fashion myself an "I Love Lucy" kinda girl. I'm not like Roseanne, though my home life is. But if you ask my friends, the overwhelming response is that I am most like Phoebe on "Friends." One friend said, "Just like her, you do nice things for people, are sweet, and manage to get into lots of goofy situations." I also think it's because I have an odd sense of humor. So I guess I'm Phoebe! Anyone want to hear my rendition of "Smelly Cat?"

B) Who in Hollywood or what well known person have people said you most resemble?

When I was a teenager, I was wearing a photo button of John Taylor and someone thought I was wearing a picture of myself. I was so obsessed with him, that I guess I got my hair like his and sorta morphed into him. I think I most resemble Claire Danes (similar features, though she is waaaayy prettier!). The best compliment I ever got though was when someone told me I had a "Ann-Margret kinda thing going on."

C) What well known wealthy person is living their life the way you would given the same set of circumstances?

Is there any wealthy person out there that has given most of it away? If so, that would be my answer. I'd keep enough to not have to worry, and to have a nice home and get to travel, but the rest, would all be given away to help others. I don't say that to make myself seem oddly generous. I feel best about money when I am giving it away or spending it on others. I'd like to not have to worry about it, but to me wealth is meant to be shared. I despise excess.

I'm late for the party, but based on how tired I was and how quickly I crashed when I got home late from work last night, I would have selected Rip Van Winkle, mostly because I think I could sleep 20 years right now.

It was either 'Rip' or Sleeping Beauty, but I'm afraid of who I might attract ir I was lying here in a dress.

Have a great day.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

This was a fun week and I loved your question(s). More playful is what I'm trying to say. You do showcase all the players well too and that's appreciated. You just have a way of making all of us feel special. Have a great day Ann. :)

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Well Rip, I think you made the right decision. Because, we love you, but we wouldn't be here in twenty years! In addition, you're right, no telling what's running around here at night! These nests have bats you know! LOL! Get some sleep-

Ann

Have a great day too! ;)

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Courage-

Humor-

Humor


Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination


Written for Ann

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'


F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
