I’ve been tagged! I am a bit slow in responding, but I am rationalizing it because I am slow in real life and would definitely stay “it” in a game of tag for quite a while. I’ve actually been tagged twice, by The (mis)Adventures of Sage and Gone for a Walk.
1. Describe Yourself In 7 Words
Pearl: high-strung, anxious, spoiled, lovable (in spite of the previous three words), curious, smart, silly
Me: haha probably the same as Pearl, she is definitely the dog version of me (except she is skinny)
2. What Keeps You Up At Night
Pearl: The fact that I have boundless energy
3. Who Would You Like To Be?
Pearl: The one who is the center of attention AT ALL TIMES
Me: Someone successful enough that I can wear jeans to work and no one will question it
4. What Are You Wearing Right Now?
Pearl: My spindrift fleece-lined cozy dog collar
Me: Unfortunately, I had to dress up for school today because of a job fair, so I am not wearing my usual jeans and a sweatshirt for once
5. What Scares You?
Pearl: Other people and dogs getting too close when I’m on a walk, the sound of car doors slamming near my house, the vet’s office, the sight of the bitter apple spray bottle, things blowing in the wind, water getting anywhere near me unless I am drinking it, and the many other strange and suspicious things I encounter every day that are just NOT RIGHT
Me: heights, getting lost (which I do often), not getting a job after I finish school, not being able to button my jeans
6. The Best and Worst of Blogging
Pearl: The best is all the good info that is out there about the best ways to feed me, train me, and generally take care of a high-maintenance dog like me. The worst is when I want a lap to rest my head on and a laptop is in the way.
Me: The best is the wonderfully supportive and knowledgeable community that has helped my totally unprepared self through the ups and downs of dog ownership. The worst is that because I am so busy I don’t “participate” as much as I want to- for example I do a lot of my blog reading through my google reader on my phone so I tend to not comment very much because doing it on the phone is a pain.
7. The Last Website I Visited
Does gmail count as a website? I am an obsessive email checker, it’s really gotten out of hand.
8. What Is The One Thing I Would Change About Myself?
Pearl: I think it would be nice to be a little bit more relaxed and less jumpy. It is awfully stressful to be constantly on high alert, but I don’t seem to know how to calm down sometimes.
Me: Be more decisive! I am super bad at making choices… I was actually debating what one thing I would change about myself for way too long.
9. Slankets Yes or No?
Pearl: I will sleep on anything that is soft and blanket-like.
Me: I really enjoy being curled up under a blanket. I am ok with slankets but I probably would not use the arms as intended. Also, slanket as a name sounds way less nice than snuggie.
10. Tell Us Something About The Dog That Tagged You.
Sage seems like one of the most happy, fun-loving dogs around and her puppy pictures are literally so cute they make me squeal. Actually, one of my favorite things about her blog are the pictures, she is always having fun adventures that often involve getting dirty!
Gwynn, like Pearl, also has a first time dog owner and seems like he is doing a great job of “showing her the ropes” of dog ownership. He loves snow and food. He just seems like an all around good boy who will melt your heart with his shaggy good looks.
And now to tag 8 others…
This is hard because I feel like so many of the blogs I read have already been tagged. Sorry if I accidentally pick someone who has already been tagged. Here are some who *I think* have not been tagged yet…
Phew! That was the hardest part! Now we’re tired
