Tag, you are it!

My friend Caren, from Cat Chat, tagged me in a meme. Since she shares her blog with her cat cody, and answered the questions from both her and his perspective, I decided to copy her, and do the same, answering from mine and Alex’s perspective….


1. Describe yourself in 7 words:

Hilary – Shoe addicted, compulsive, clumsy, fun loving, over-achiever

Alex – purrfect, purrfect, purrfect, purrfect, purrfect, purrfect, purrfect

2. What keeps you up at night?

Hilary – Alex!

Alex – thinking of ways to get my mom up on time for MY breakfast…. Man, is she lazy


3. Who would I like to be?

Hilary – Alex… he has the life

Alex – ME! I have it made! My parents wait on my hand over paw1


4. What am I wearing now?

Hilary – I feel like I am talking to a guy who I just started dating. And I also feel the urge to lie and make up some wild outfit, but I am actually wearing the tee shirt I slept in and gray sweat pants

Alex – I don’t wear clothes silly!


5. What scares me?

Hilary – Going with a silly fear. I am scared of snakes – good thing I have never seen one!

Alex – the thought of my mom sleeping late and missing my breakfast


6. The best and worst of blogging:

Hilary – all the friends I have made is the best. The worst is that it is so time consuming. I never feel like I have time to visit all the sites I want to

Alex – The best is meeting my girlfriend gracie. The worst. There is none for me. My servant, I mean my mom, does all the work!


7. The last website I visited:

Hilary –gotomypc.com – I had to log into work

Alex – Brian’s Home– had to see my girlfriend Gracie (she is a hottie, isn’t she?)


8. What is the one thing I would change about myself

Hilary – I wish I wasn’t so hard on myself, and I need to learn how to relax

Alex – did you not read that I am purrfect?


9. Slankets yes or no?

Hilary – I don’t have one, but I think I would like one

Alex – Nah… I have enough beds as it is…


10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you:

Hilary – Caren is one of the first bloggers I met and developed a friendship with. She is a funny, generous and wonderful woman and I am fortunate to call her my friend. When my husband, Marc’s dad passed away a few months back, I emailed Caren and let her know. I expected an email back, but I was blown away by the fact that she called me to express her sympathy and also sent us a beautiful basked. I was amazed at her generosity. We have spoken on the phone since, and I can attest the wonderful person she appears to be online is how she really is in real life.

Alex – Duh! She is Cody’s mom…

I am supposed to tag people now, so I will, but I really want to tag everyone… so if you want to play along….


Susi – Boca Frau

Brenda – Ficton with a purpose

Brian & Gracie – Brian’s home

Leslie –Time out for Mom

Tere – Yep, this is my life, wanna trade (who gave me the versatile blog award the other day, thanks!)

Jennifer – just another day

Mr. Pip

Beth Ann – It’s just life
