Getting Personal


The lovely Kim, of Inspired Lines, recently shared a questionnaire with her followers, divulging a little fun information about who she is (besides an amazingly talented artist!).  She then finished with a list of 11 questions for a few fellow bloggers to answer on their own blogs.  In an effort to connect with you all on a more personal (and fun!) level, here are my answers to her questions:


1. You're in line at the supermarket...you've been there for 10 minutes; the queues are ridiculous but you really really need this bar of chocolate, darn it! Someone pushes in front of you...do you say something or let it pass?

I would definitely say something!  I don't have any qualms about standing up for myself.  It's important to have dignity.  Of course, I would go about doing so in a polite way! ;) 




2.   Righty or lefty?

I'm a crazy lefty!  I never learned how to write correctly as a left-handed person, though, so my hand always smudges when I write.



3.  Favourite bedtime story when you were a kid...or now? ; )

I liked The Borrowers.  My mom used to read the book to me at bedtime, and I just loved it!  She is a teacher, so she had different voices for the characters and had different inflections while reading.  It kept me intrigued!  I was so excited to learn that there is a movie coming out based on Mary Norton's novel that will be called The Secret World of Arrietti.


4.  Best chick flick?

There are so many that I love!  My favorite would probably be The Notebook.  It is such a sweet story, and it always makes me cry.  I also love Beaches, which is a lovely tale of friendship through thick and thin.


5.  Hair up or Hair down?

I like to wear my hair up in a bun or a side ponytail.  I guess I feel the prettiest when my hair is up!

6.  What's inside your handbag right now?





7.  Favourite flower?

Without a doubt, peonies!  Hydrangeas come in a close second.



8.  Drama, Thriller or Horror?

Thrillers!  I like the movies that have twists in them that you can't predict are coming.  Movies like The Sixth Sense, Lincoln Lawyer, and American Psycho.


9.  Your first love...a fond memory or a yucky recall?

Unfortunately, a yucky recall.  But you learn so much from every experience, so I have no regrets!  



10.  What are you reading at the moment?

Do Harper's Bazaar and Vogue count? ;)



11. An oldie but a goodie; brains or beauty?

Oh what a toughie!  I have to go with brains here, though.  Looks fade over time, we really can't help that and shouldn't be afraid of that, either!  Brains make you interesting and charming.  



I would love to hear your answers to these questions!  Feel free to leave a response below, tweet me at @peakoftreschic, or repost the questions to your own blog.  I love getting to know fellow bloggers!

  1. Oh Sam : ) Thanks for playing along...I loved reading your answers and your images are brilliant.

    I love The Sixth Sense and movies with the same type of "gotcha" ending. Another great one with a surprise ending and a little bit spooky is, "Hide and Seek" with Robert De Niro and also, "The Others" with Nicole Kidman : )

    I think all our handbags would have pretty much the same things inside : )

    ...and I go with brains also, although...I'm rather hot ; ) Just kidding.

    It was lovely reading about you, Sam. Thanks again.
