Meeeeeeme

Adam tagged me over ten days ago so I’m a bit tardy with this meme, but I’m ready to share!

1. If you could have any superpower, what would you have? Why?
This answer always changes for me, but right at this moment (8:10pm on Wednesday evening) I’d like to be able to read other people’s minds. Maybe I’d walk by an agent’s office… you know…

2. Who is your style icon?
Gwenyth Paltrow was the first person to come to mind.

Since Adam also included writing, I’ll say Jodi Picoult.

3. What is your favorite quote?
“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but the moments that take our breath away.” I’ve loved that long before Hitch said it.

4. What is the best compliment you’ve ever received?
“You’re American?” After seeing me salsa dance.

(Again, that’s the first that popped into my head. I also like “Damn, girlie, you can write!”)

5. What playlist/CD is in your CD player/iPod right now?
No CD player or iPod. Stone age here I come.

Oh! I do have iTunes on my computer but I haven’t played anything in months.

6. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
I’ll always consider myself a night owl but the fact that I get up at 5am kind of argues against that point. Lately I’ve been staying up until midnight, so does that still count?

7. Do you prefer dogs or cats?
Let me direct your attention here.

8. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
The first three letters are from my last name, Hooyenga, but I cannot take credit for coming up with it. A couple years ago a certain bunny on the writing forum would get antsy whenever I’d mention my blog and shout (well, type loudly, ‘cuz, you know, we’re on the internet) “Hoosblog!” When I left Mexico and decided to start a new blog, and Hoosblog seemed like the obvious choice.

And there you go. Hopefully you’ve learned something new about me today. I’m not going to tag anyone but if you decide to do this on your own blog please leave a comment in this post.

AND, I finally added all the social media icons so get sharing!

    LOL – I totally get the reading the minds one.

    I think if I could have any superpower, I would love to teleport. How sweet would it be not to fly in airplanes, but just teleport to where you wanted to go.

    I also have to agree with teleport, it doesn’t matter what other people think when you can be anywhere, the instant you want.
    Not to mention, no more worry about driving home after drinking.
    And there is no way I am adding myself to social media.
    I do have an extra iPod you can use if you want.
    You can use the shuffle right now, and when the snow falls I will trade the shuffle for the nano.
