The Lost Generation, Singing in the Shower, and Other Things You May Not Know About Leah

One of my favorite bloggers, Lisa of cyclingrandma, recently bestowed upon me the Good Apple Award. With this award came a series of questions for me to answer. I love these question posts and decided to answer those posed of me by Lisa. So without further adieu (I had to look up “adieu” to make sure I spelled it right), here are my answers.
Do you tan, freckle or burn? Burn. I’m terrible with sunscreen.

What’s your favorite mayonnaise? Isn’t there only one kind? Best Foods.

When was the last time you cried at a movie? Don’t laugh but I cried watching Pollyanna this week with Sophie.

When was the last time you cried while reading a book? I am a blubbering fool when it comes to movies and television. (I broke down sobbing in a recent episode of House.) But not so much with books. Usually what brings me to tears are stories having to do with dogs or the Holocaust. So given that, the last book that I recall sobbing through was Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. Before that, it was The Story of Edgar Sawtelle.

What’s your favorite Dr. Seuss story? The Grinch!

Do you prefer dark meat or white meat? Why? White meat. I don’t know why.

Which do you do more: online or in person shopping? Considering most of my purchases are groceries, that would be in-person shopping.

If you could travel back in time to spend a day with anyone from history or your own life, who would that be and what would you do? After watching Midnight in Paris a few weeks ago (great movie!), I’d love to be in Paris during the Roaring 20s with the members of the Lost Generation.

What do you sing in the shower? Show tunes … the Grease soundtrack is heard quite a bit.

What’s your writing pattern/schedule/secret vice? I’m a Night Owl, so most of my personal writing and blogging is done at night. My work writing is usually done early in the day. I must use different parts of my brain for varying writing styles.

Who was your favorite teacher and why? I’ve been fortunate to have many great teachers in my life. But the one who really changed my way of  thinking was a communications professor who was also my master’s thesis advisor. I loved every class of hers. And I will never look at healthcare and communication, as well as women’s roles in organizations, the same again. And that’s a good thing.

And now readers, I want to hear from you. Leave a comment with your answers. Or post them on your blog … because you’re all Good Apples in my book (or blog)!
