De-Lurking Fun: Who Are You?

4 Feb

I’ve been writing this blog for almost three years now and one of my favorite parts of blogging is when I get an email from a reader that has been reading for a while and wants to say “hi.”

I LOVE getting the random “hi” and it totally brightens my day!

Last week on Facebook I asked everyone to let me know where they live and 16 states were represented, along with Canada and New Zealand. Which is kind of AWESOME!

So now it’s your turn… I invite you to de-lurk! Whether you’ve commented before or if it’s your very first time, take a minute and leave me a message below!

To make it fun, here are some questions you can answer:

  • Where are you?
  • What do you do for a living?
  • Which celebrity would you totally makeout with if you had the chance?
  • What food can you just NOT resist?
  • What is your current ROCK OUT jam?

Thank you for reading and thank you so much for saying “hi!”

HUGS for everyone!

    I’ll start! I’m KATIE and I live in ILLINOIS and I’ve been switching between old school Motown and string versions of pop songs on my pandora station. If you never thought you’d rock out to a cello, you need to hear it play Smooth Criminal.

      Katie – apparently you brought your whole posse over to this blog. =) And I HAVE heard a cello play Smooth Criminal on an episode of Glee and it was SO GOOD!

      Argh! Sail …it haunts me! …if you like heavy music at all, check out DevilDriver’s cover of it …definitely an interesting take on the song.

  7. Cindy W February 4, 2014 at 1:36 pm #

    I’m in Texas.

    An accountant.

    I would totally make out with Martin Freeman. I am completely in love with him as Watson.

    I cannot resist chocolate.

    I don’t have a favorite jam right now. My ringtone is Eminem’s Berzerk. I love everything from oldies through today’s music, although I mostly listen to Classic Rock when my daughter is not in the car and I’m not listening to Howard Stern.

    Hello!
    I live in the west suburbs of Chicago.
    I’m currently an “office administrator,” but have dreams of one day opening my own bakery.
    I’m a single mom of my awesome son, who is autistic.
    Celebrity I’d totally go for? Tie between Harrison Ford and Nathan Fillion.
    I cannot resist good Mexican fare. I’m 100% Polish, but I make my own tamales and call them tamalskis.
    I generally listen to the 40s and Sinatra stations on my satellite radio, but Earth, Wind, and Fire’s “September” always gets me dancing.
    So, yeah, completely weird.

  10. Rachel February 4, 2014 at 3:57 pm #

    Where are you? Living in good ol’ Central Illinois (I know Katie @ Word for Worms too!)
    What do you do for a living? Currently working HR & Recruiting for an engineering firm…but I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.
    Which celebrity would you totally makeout with if you had the chance? Ohh tough choice. It might be the multi-talented JT (Justin Timberlake) Swoon. It’s cuz he makes me laugh!
    What food can you just NOT resist? Uh, chocolate. In pretty much any form. And cake. When Facebook had a spot to put one sentence about your yourself, mine was “I like cake.”
    What is your current ROCK OUT jam? I love to sing in the car to a lot of things. But one CD will always get me rocking, the soundtrack from RENT. Love it!

    • Joules February 5, 2014 at 9:44 am #

      I have the entire soundtrack of Rent memorized and I’ve seen it in NYC, DC, London and Baltimore. If I were in the show, I’d want to be Maureen, of course. =)

  11. Ryan Richeal February 4, 2014 at 5:03 pm #

    Hi my name is Ryan(I am a girl even though my name tries to trick people!)I was born and raised in Pittsburgh Pa but now I live in Hershey Pa. I am a Preschool teacher (3 and 4 year olds) I am in love with Chris Helmsworth….Thor yummy! And I am a pizza addicted. I could probably eat it everyday 🙂 I rock out to Hunter Hayes with my 2 little girls (4 and 1)

  12. Ashley February 4, 2014 at 8:53 pm #

    Ashley from (just outside) Chicago il. (Also a friend of Katie from words for worms)
    I currently manage a Famous Footwear store (but made the super hard decision to go back to school and figure out what I really want to be when I grow up!)
    I’d totally make out with Ryan Goodling. He’s my hot slice of hotness!
    I can’t resist any sort of pasta! And im a Chicago pizza kinda gal as well!
    I have a lot of rock out jams but right now my rock out band of choice is anything by The Black Keys!

  13. Sara S February 4, 2014 at 11:24 pm #

    Hi!
    I am SARA! =0)

    Where are you? I live between San Francisco and San Jose, kinda feels like the center of the world sometimes (because I drive by FB headquarters, not because it’s hot because it’s not hot like ever)

    What do you do for a living? I am a ROCKSTAR! Not really, I sell homes and I love my job full of ridiculous bucket loads of awesomeness because homes make people happy!

    Which celebrity would you totally makeout with if you had the chance? Dead or alive? Seriously. I never said I was from Normalville. Andy Whitfield if dead (Spartacus!) and alive I’d take Ryan Gosling, Hunter Pence, Chris or Liam Hemsworth, and the guy who plays Peeta in Hunger Games but I’m spacing on his name…. I’m not terribly picky!

    What food can you just NOT resist? ALL of it! I have a degree in classical French cuisine (but I sell used houses!). At this moment I could go for some Rembrandt aged gouda, creme brulee, or raspberries.

    What is your current ROCK OUT jam? Hard one! Right now I’m really liking that song from that commercial that’s actually from that movie I never saw. I think it’s by Pharrell. I have no idea what it is but I dance to the commercial.

    Fun fact: I found this blog through FB because I saw Lauren Filing Jointly commented when Joules posted Macklemore’s “Thirft Shop” which made me simultaneously fall in love with Joules and Macklemore. I’ve been inspired to start my own which has a long way to go…..

    And if you actually read all this I’d send you a margarita but it would probably melt in the mail so I’m sending happy thoughts about margaritas instead because you deserve it!

    • Joules February 5, 2014 at 9:48 am #

      Yes, I read the WHOLE THING. I’ll be in San Jose over the summer, so you can give me my margarita then… 😉

      Is the Pharrell song “Happy”? It’s been on the radio lately and I LOVE it: http://youtu.be/y6Sxv-sUYtM

      And I love that you love me AND Macklemore. Because I would TOTALLY makeout with Macklemore if given the chance (and if my husband said it was okay).

      • Sara S February 6, 2014 at 6:31 pm #

        I didn’t see I got a reply! We’ve actually emailed back and forth a bit about BlogHer and I’m probably gonna get all stalkerish and try to meet up with you!

        Yes, that’s the song! It makes me happy!

        I love Macklemore, he’s a cutie. I am actually following his fiancee on Instagram, she’s adorable and posts some pretty cute pics of him! I’m totally in touch with my inner 13 year old and that’s only slightly embarrassing.

  14. Ginny February 5, 2014 at 10:16 am #

    I’m Ginny and I live in Southwest Ohio. I’m a SAHM to my girls, 3 1/2 yr old and 21 month old. I would make out with Ryan Gosling, yum! Love him in Crazy Stupid Love. I can’t resist cake of any kind or chocolate chip cookies. I love Adele and old school 90’s pop.

  15. Kari February 5, 2014 at 4:11 pm #

    My name is Kari and I am an….oh wait.
    Wrong forum.
    I live in Illinois. You might have heard of us, high taxes, corrupt politicians, suckass weather?
    I am a home engineer/blogger/writer/lover of all things high in carbohydrates.
    I would TOTALLY make out with Dave Grohl.
    Or John Cusack.
    Or both at the same time.
    AND FILM IT.
    I cannot resist DQ Heath bar Blizzard.
    My jam right now is two fold: Happy by Pharrell and Canned Heat by Jamiroquai.

    Right now, I’m loving sunny and warm FL.
    When I’m off Mommy duty, I blog and play with numbers for an HOA (bookkeeper:) )
    Hmmm…. which celebrity? So many choice out there, but I think I will go with Channing Tatum
    I cannot resist Sweettarts… I know, not exactly a food, but I am a candy junky.
    As for a current jam, it’s probably Boys Round Here – Blake Shelton or Drink a beer – Luke Bryan

    Coming at you from the SITS Comment Love Tribe!

    Hi Joules! I have had fun checking out our site. You look like a fun person that I could hang with. 😉

    I’m from Gilbert (Phx) AZ. I do graphic design and blog at inkhappi!

    Hmmmm celebrity make-out? Its been awhile since I’ve fantasized this one… Probably a pretty boy like Brant Daugherty/James marsden or Denzel. Have always had a thing for him!

    Currently I can’t live without the amazing grapefruit off our tree in AZ but that is rare, its usually cupcakes/cake. Love it with lots of frosting! 😉

    I am always in to some good old 80’s rock and ballads… Van Halen, Aerosmith, Styx, Foreigner. A mix of those will get me going!
