Who? What? Where? When? Why? How?

OK, so in my travels around Blogland, I've seen a number of posts where the writer takes questions from the readers. I've always thought these sorts of posts were a little on the narcissistic side BUT I've also always enjoyed reading them... and truth be told, we all have a touch of narcissism in us, don't we? I mean, that's why a lot of us blog... we talk about ourselves and our lives and we get feedback from other people... who talk about themselves and their lives... and so on. And all of you, like me, enjoy your little glimpses into other peoples' lives, right? Why else would we do it?

So, at the risk of being labeled a narcissist (and because I got nothin' in the way of a post right now), I'm going to ask you to submit questions... anything you want to know about yours truly (as if I haven't told you enough already). As I tell Ryan, no topic is off limits (well, no topic I can think of at the moment)... personal, political, religious, mommyhood, serious, silly... whatever. Just don't be mean (Alan)!

You can ask in the comments section or via email ( And I'd love to hear from some of those lovely lurkers who visit every day but never say a word... feel free to ask Anonymously, if you'd like... just don't be mean (Alan!).

I can't wait to see what some of you come up with! And in the meantime, have a great weekend!!! XO

Thinking...I got nothin'...I'll think on it, but can't wait to read some of the questions you'll be asked ;)

This is a hard one, very difficult question, I am afraid. But it is political, not personal. I could not think of a better one, and I know you hold views that are very similar to mine.

Can you explain the recent surge in campaigns against Obama with a distinct racist (under)tone? What are they trying to do? Ruin the American reputation again?! Where do all these insane people come from? (Sorry that was more than one question. Oops!)

Ronda's Rants said...

Do you plan on living in "pigsnuckle" long?
Did you know my fav Jimmy Carter will be at FMU on Monday? Will you get to see him?

Anonymous said...

Hmm, how not to be mean? I'll have to think on this one.

But I'd like to take a shot at answering part of swenglishexpat's question on where do all of the insane people come from. So here goes: Red states

Ok, I guess I can add 'red districts' to that as well, like Pigsnuckle for example.

Red it isn't just the color of anger anymore, it's the color of insanity.

blognut said...

What color is your toothbrush?

Are you right-handed or left?

Pedicured, or unpolished?

Most embarrassing moment?

Baseball hat or tiara? (Heh, I KNOW THIS ONE!)

Do you love Blognut?

Okay - enough for now. I need some time to mean reflect.

She said...

What's your all time favorite movie? (and why?) I wouldn't be a teacher if I didn't ask why???

All time favorite book? (same as above with the why and all).

Favorite food or meal you'd want on your bday?

What kind of birthday cake do you always want?

And do you like red velvet cupcakes or no? ('cause I can't stop eating the damn things!)

Do love She? You know, like you love your Blognut?

Do you get magazine subscriptions? If so, which ones?

Do you read New York Times online or another online news source? Or do you just watch on TV?

Have you wrestled lately? ;-)

Stu Pidasso said...

DO you think you will handle Ryan's wedding day well when you are forced to stay in a room with the ex for more than a few moments?

Will you actually dance with the ex when it is time for the parents to dance?

Are you dreading the whole boyfriend/driving/tenn independance happening that is slowly creeping up on you?

And I am with you Diane, I have a hard time forgiving those who make a conscious choice to hurt me....either directly or indirectly.

what do you like most about yourself ?

lakeviewer said...

I'm curious about your home town. Is it real?

mo.stoneskin said...

Are you a narcissist?


What does a pint of Guinness cost in Pigsnuckle, or is it still impossible to find? said...

What are your policies as a mom on teen dating? Yay or Nay?

Jenera said...

Right or left handed?

What color socks do you normally wear?

What did you want to be when you grew up?

If you were on death row, what would your final meal be?

If you could commit any crime knowing you would not get caught, what would you do?

Protege said...

Ah great idea Diane.;))
Furthermore, it seems that people are really curious about you too.;))

I guess my humble question is what made you start this blog (or blogging) and why did you pick the blogger site.;))

Have a great weekend Diane.;))

Did you ever have that 'coffee' date with the young pup?

Chris@Maugeritaville said...

Okay, my favorite "get to know someone" question...

You can invite any four people (dead or alive) to have dinner with. Who do you choose and why?

Ladybird World Mother said...

Will you ever get the time to answer all these questions?!!! Love the post... cant wait to hear your answers... and what colour IS your toothbrush? xxxxx

Anonymous said...

Do you think you'll ever get married again?

Greenfingers said...

Diane..could you please answer my question. Do you think your a writer? Hang on..I'll do it!!

Mel said...

I know I'm late to the party, but I'd like to know why you're so very mean to you friend Melanie. She's so sweet and kind and generous and thoughtful, but yet you insist over and over that she's weird. And you snort at her all of the time. And you take her places that make her trip on sidwalks. I just want to know, why oh why are you so mean???
