Link Up and Leap Around the Blogosphere #LeapBlog #LeapBlog2012

It’s Leap Year and in honor of the extra day we all receive today, February 29th, our blogging friend, Jessica from Look Who Found the Marbles, created a fun little meme with a list of questions to answer on our own blogs. You’re welcome to link up and leap along with us!

So here are my answers to Jessica’s question…

1. My childhood nickname(s) was Wiki, my girlfriends called me this, think it had something to do with a night out and the song “Jam On It” – it stuck.  They still refer to me this way even today, some 30 years later!

2. If you want to spoil me rotten, bring me to a beach and give me a stack of fashion magazines, come back the next day.

3. The television character I most identify with is Debra from Everybody Loves Raymond, my BIL actually calls me this sometimes!  My husband calls me the General.

4. If I had a whole day to go shopping and money to spend, I would go to Neiman Marcus because I love the clothes, shoes and bags and have never really been able to shop there on our budget.

5. The most wild and crazy thing I have ever done (that I can admit to publicly) is jump over the wall at Giant Stadium during a Grateful Dead Concert and make my way to the front of the stage – danced my heart out and lost one of my shoes.

6. The one thing on my bucket list that I am most eager to do is travel, some of the places on my list are the Pyramids of Giza, Aurora Borealis, The Louvre,  Parthenon, Amazon Rain Forest, Great Barrier Reef and Bali.

7. My family will always be loyal to each other and the game of hockey.

8. If I could spend a day with a celebrity I would choose Ellen.  I think I would have a great day and make a new friend, plus anyone who is known by only their first name is worth meeting.

9. In my opinion, the best invention in the history of the world is wheel,  I live in the car and can’t imagine carrying 3 hockey bags around on my back!

10. When life hands me lemons, I slice them up and enjoy them with shot of Patron Tequila!

  1. Dawn, I really like your Greatful Dead wall-hopping story. See? You leaped early on this leapblog hop! And your day at the beach with magazines sounds wonderful, I’m surprised I didn’t pick that too. What is funny is to see you type Bali on your bucket list travel destinations because I typed Bora Bora which is lovely I’m sure, but I was thinking of Bali! I just met an owner of a villa that sleeps 10, he said anytime end of March through December is perfect to go and told me to email him when I want to get a better deal on the lodging! Check this out:

  2. LOL – love that your hubs calls you the General. I think mine does too, just not to my face 🙂

  3. Oh I love your travel choices! I would love to go to Bali too. I also said Ellen but then I changed it to my true celebrity BFF (who doesn’t know it) Will Ferrell. Ellen would be awesome though!

  4. I love the fact that so far three of us have chosen Debra from Everybody Loves Raymond. How funny is that? I loved hearing about your wild and crazy memory. 🙂

  5. Your husband calls you the General; my husband calls me the Boss. Is this their way of letting us know that indeed we are always right? Because we are. We really, really are.

    (Love Everybody Loves Raymond by the way. One of my all time favorites.)

  6. You and I need to spend the day together. By your answers it sounds like we would have a mighty good time!
