It's Officially Begun!

Yikes! National Blog Posting Month begins today (as well as my "he-tox"). Woo!

I'm shooting for 60 days here folks. I know it's supposed to be 30, but I've always been an overachiever. Really, though - it's what they told me I should do. I'm going to leave the decision up to the professionals. So here's to day numero uno!

Originally I was going to have a "theme" for aforementioned NaBloPoMo festivities, but November 1st is here and I've yet to come up with something. So this is my plan...and this COULD backfire in my face so bear with me. I'm asking you, my loyal readers, to ask me anything your heart desires [within reason] and I will answer. It could be as silly as what my last meal would be or as complicated as my feelings on the death penalty. Want to know about my first kiss? The first time I said the "L" word? Or maybe you want to know what I do in my spare time? Who my best friend is? Do I get along with my parents? What is my biggest fear? I'll tell you whatever you want [within reason]. This should be fun!

So please don't let this backfire in my face - pretty please with cherries on top. Ask away - as many questions as you want! And I encourage those of you who read but don't comment to come out of hiding for this one! You can post anonymously if you want or shoot me an email michelleandthecity@gmail.com. I'd love to hear from you. Trust me, e-mail makes me happy :)

Ooh fun...hmmm let's see...boring/mundane or fun/controversial? Tough...

As a pastor's daughter I'm always curious as to what people think about death. Do you believe in reincarnation? Do you believe our actions mandate getting into Heaven or Hell. Or do you believe we just die.

Okay thsi is going to be fun....where were you when you had your first kiss and who was it with?

L Sass said...

I am giving you the same assignment I've given everyone.

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE OUTFIT IN EIGHTH GRADE. Solid gold.

Jess said...

"He-tox" is a brilliant term. Brilliant.

Okay, questions. You put out a bunch of good ones as suggestions, so now I have to think of a unique one. Okay. What are the main stores that you shop at? What are the main stores you would shop at if money were not an issue? What stores do you never ever go near? Yeah, I know, I'm materialistic.

Stephanie said...

Ooh, I would like to hear more about your "he-tox" plan. Hehehe, I like the way that sounds.

Also, I may steal your question idea since I am doing NaBloPoMo as well and will surely run out of ideas, um, probably next week.

Thanks!

Did you keep your journals from grade school??? Could you post a page? :D I wanna do it but I threw out all my old journals. *Sob* Happy nablopomo and he-toxing! :D

Lisa said...

My question for you is one I've recently had to reflect on for myself. I don't want to be pessimistic so I was going to ask something upbeat... but instead I ask "What one thing about yourself do you pretend to like- but really you don't?". It can't be something we already know you don't know, you know? Like for some people this would be saying "I don't like my weight, even though I put on the face that I do" for others "I love being single? No. I actually hate it.". Etc. What's yours?

Angela said...

What a great idea for blog fodder!! Let's see...

*Is there a friend you've lost touch with that you wonder about and wish you still talked to?

*If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? (You can say more than one place!)

Somehow I think you've got enough questions to last you way more than a month, but here's my contribution:

What is the one moment from your life that you know you'll remember always?

Oh, and what's it like to be so awesome? :)

Why haven't you ever flown on a plane? Is it a fear of flying? I have a fear of the doctors office, needles, getting my teeth cleaned at the dentist and clowns so don't be ashamed...

That's about as creative as I can get for now. Maybe I'll think of something better later.

Anna said...

Take a picture of the contents of your bag or bedside table. Discuss.
No editing! :)

Love that you are on for Nablo times two! I'm just wondering if I will make it through ONE.

David said...

>And I encourage those of you who read but don't comment to come out of hiding for this one!

I'm passing through, rather than lurking. But since you asked...

Which do you prefer: Deserts or Mountains?
