Meme from Dedee

The talented writer, quilt maker, deep thinker Dedee tagged me for a meme. I am more than happy to oblige her, because I am a fan.
1--What color most describes you and why? Are you blue? Green? If green, are you forest or hot or pear? Or are you a brownish-orange color? Or are you the vibrant red/purple that can only be found in a sunset? There are lots of colors in this world, pick one or two. Or does it depend on the mood?
If you were to look in my closet right now you would think that my favorite colors are turquoise and brown. But, at this very moment my favorite color is Glittersmama's walls. Please tell me what brand and color of paint that is.
2--What smell most reminds you of your childhood home and why?
The first thought that came to my head was lilac. We had a lilac bush below our bedroom window. I loved the smell when it bloomed in the spring.
3--What is your favorite article of clothing and why?
I just bought a leopard print blouse. I love it because not everyone can pull of leopard without looking like a street walker or a retiree.
4--If you could meet a President of the United States of America, living or dead, which one would it be and why?
I would like to meet John F. in the hopes that he would bring Jackie.
Side note: My favorite Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis quotes.
"I always wanted to be some kind of writer or newspaper reporter. But after college... I did other things."
"I think the best thing I can do is to be a distraction. A husband lives and breathes his work all day long. If he comes home to more table thumping, how can the poor man ever relax?"
"I want minimum information given with maximum politeness."
5--If I were to visit you and want you to take me to the place in your town/city that you love most, aside from you house, where would it be and why do you love it?
What? You wouldn't want to just sit around my house and watch me blog?! That's weird. Okay, whatever. Well, Fruita is a great little town. I would take you to see Fruita's most famous non-human citizen Grrrreta the Dinosaur. Then we would go to the Hot Tomato Cafe for a stromboli made by my friend Jen. Then I would take you to get your picture taken with the Mike the Headless Chicken statue, because you have to have your picture taken with Mike. A trip to Fruita wouldn't be complete without a tour of the Colorado National Monument. Then we would end the day with a visit to the snow cone stand. Tigers Blood is my favorite flavor.


  1. Okay, so let's talk about how much I really do love you before I divulge the information. I was off to bed, when I thought, "I'll just check my reader one last time." (The time was then 12:15am. Of course, I found this post. And I felt bad for not responding to your comment earlier, so I went on a search for a half-empty paint can that was who knows where. I searched the garage, the closet under the stairs (think Monica's secret closet), and finally found the can in the closet in my laundry room. Except there was no label on the top of that can. Thankfully my magical online powers and exceptional google searching skills have come up with the one word that you have been asking to hear. Longhorn. And I would recommend two coats.

  2. We have a mutual admiration society going on. I did the same thing. I went to bed, started reading my book, heard the dog making noises outside, came down to check on the dog, thought I would check my blog one last time,and here you are. I love you back.
    Longhorn. Awesome! It's gorgeous, just gorgeous. Have any other wonderul colors in your house you can share? What is the paint brand?

  3. Should I dare admit that I'm still up? It's the American Tradition brand at Lowe's. Do you have a Lowe's in Fruita? :)

  4. I love this post! Thank you Annie (and glittersmama)!

  5. I love the leopard print comment. I bet you look hot in it. I also love the Jackie quotes, especially the one about table thumping. Amen to that.

  6. I wanna see a pic of you in the leopard print blouse.

  7. Cute blouse, I am w/ you on turquoise and brown and Lilacs is the smell of my childhood home in my yard in Ohio. I recognized that color right away... being from Texas and all:)

  8. "I want minimum information given with maximum politeness."

    It's almost like you're reading my mind: I wanted a picture, I got a picture. I wanted an Annie Meme, I got one. I wanted to know the paint name and I gots it.

    I want a pony. I want a pony.
    And a million bucks.

  9. I have a maternity leopard skin shirt. Does anyone want to see a pic of me in it?

  10. Holy cow. Thanks for the link. I've had all kinds of random visitors today. Good thing I vacuumed this morning.

    So are you going to orange up a few walls now?

  11. I want to come to Fruita just to rub the Mike The Headless Chicken statue for good luck.

    Brown is a very good color to cover up......ummm.....accidents.

  12. What do I have to say about Annie's leopard print shirt?


  13. wow, annie, you're so accomodating with all of your linkity links. my favorite smell from childhood is the strawberry shortcake doll smell.

  14. Yep- you look great in it!
    Tell NCS she has to share her pony. Not fair! Not fair! Not fair!

  15. Ok, I'm so coming to visit you. I'm going to have to google Fruita and find out if that happens to be anywhere near where I would go if I went to CO. I have a sibling and a dear friend that live there.

    Love the Leopard. I look terrible in it!

  16. Hot tomato IS good! Annie and I did discuss over stromboli when I visited last year. If you can, you should visit her, she is the most fun, ever!

  17. I want to come visit and sit and watch you blog. I am sure I could learn a few things.


I see you sitting there. Leave a comment.
