Simple Pleasures Got Tagged.

AHOY THERE! Where are you from and where are you going? Comment me that, if you care to. Seth at The Altered Page is doing a polling of "guests" who pass by. We all wonder who our company is and if they are bloggers (or Web siters too) or just passersby who got off on the wrong track. Leave a comment if you have a moment.
In the meantime, Veronica Funk, Simple Pleasures, got tagged today. I've been thinking about some questions like this. I offered up a couple more, perhaps not quite so ordinary. Let me know if you copy and answer these yourself.
These were some of the questions she had to answer, and a few I've added, replaced with my own answers:
What are you wearing now?
Jeans, black wool socks, green Danskos, green long-sleeved top.
How often do you blog?
5 times a week or more!
Who was the last person you hugged?
My significant other.
Which item from your closet are you wearing most lately?
My jeans.
What's for dinner?
Ground turkey meatloaf and pea salad.
What's the last thing you bought?
A lamp and small side table.
What are you listening to right now?
Can't hear it too well, back here in the office, but it's a mix of lots of stuff on the 60-disc spinner.
What is your favorite weather and why?
Warm summer so I'm not cold.
What time do you usually get up?
6.45 am
What is your most challenging goal right now?
Getting my head on "righter."
When have you been happiest?
Coaching girls softball one spring/summer.
If you could have a house-totally paid for, fully furnished-anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be?
In the deep, deep Oregon woods.
Favorite vacation spot?
Last person you saw crying.
Last person you saw laughing hard.
What movies can you watch over and over again?
"Groundhog Day," "Pride and Prejudice," "Wonder Boys," "Roman Holiday," "Penny Serenade," "Like Water for Chocolate," "Wings of Desire," "It's a Wonderful Life."
What is your favorite tea?
Starbucks Chocolate Hazelnut.
Who are you tagging?
No one. I'll leave them alone for now.
AND this weekend I'll be attending the Oregon Press Women Conference in Troutdale at McMenamin's Edgefield. It will be fun taking a writing workshop from Jessica Page Morrell. She is going to show us how to make our writing *sparkle* - femminismo

Hello, I see that you are exploring the book arts so we have lots in common. I have just read your kind comment on my blog so I have come from there, not sure where I will go next, maybe I'll visit the lady in your side bar who designs paste papers, I love paste papers. Your blog is very interesting and I can see that I could spend lots of time here.

I'm taking a writing workshop, too, and have been working on altered books/journals for fun. Isn't it exciting to expand on this creative journey? Your library card project is amazing.

Interesting word - 'ovenromp'. We live just east of the Rocky Mountains so were hit with a dump of snow overnight (which can happen in the middle of summer, too). It's lovely but will be messy by tomorrow when the sun shows up again ;)

Thanks for the shout out to my poll! And great to learn a little more about you too!
