I'm it!

I was tagged by Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell (because I sucked up and begged just a little ;)) Sometimes I just want to throw in a 'for fun' post. So here it is:

1. Post these rules
2. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer the questions set for you in their post.
4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
5. Go to their blog and tell them that you've tagged them.
6. No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this. You legitimately have to tag 11 people.
11 Random Things:
  1. Winter is actually my favourite season even though I don't ski or snowboard
  2. My husband and I uprooted our two youngest kids and relocated to a remote fishing village in Belize for a year.
  3. I'm a closet Steve Wilkos fan (stupid, sensationalist 'he's cheating on me and I want a lie detector test' type show for those of you more cultured than myself)
  4. I volunteer as an advocate helping victims of crime through the court process
  5. I collect fridge magnets
  6. I'm a botanical serial killer/mass murderer. I keep buying plants but they all end up dead and buried.
  7. Quilting and cooking are my other hobbies.
  8. I'm addicted to stationary of all types. I buy it and hoard it in my closet.
  9. When my kids were small they thought the 'f word' was 'fat'. It was taboo in our house.
  10. I'm deathly allergic to housework.
  11. My kindred spirit is a big black dog named Brie.
And now for my 11 questions:

 1. Best book you have read: My all time favourite book right now (it changes from time to time) is Still Alice by Lisa Genova but I hate to play favourites.
2. You fav tv-series: Big Bang Theory - my best friends in high school could have inspired that show.
3. Best movie you have seen: I love the old classics - either Casablanca or Arsenic and Old Lace
4. Your dream job as a kid: I wanted to be a medical examiner/coroner in the worst way. I thought it would be cool to cut up dead bodies and find out how they died. Quincy was my hero.
5. What do you usually eat for breakfast? I'm bad - on a good day I might grab a banana, otherwise I wait till lunch to eat.
6. The one thing you could not live without? My kids of course. (technically that's four things but only one category)
7. It's the zombie apocalypse, what do you do? Run to my daughter's house. She has an actual plan and a zombie safe room with axes and stuff.
8. If you were an animal, what would you be? Elephant for sure.
9. The song stuck on your mind right now: If I Had a Million Dollars by the Barenaked Ladies
10 The book you would want to live in.. Little House on the Prairie. I would love to have grown up in those times.
11 Hottest actor around? Bruce Willis - I have all his movies.

I believe I'll just tag the blogs of the week and if anyone else wants a tag, let me know.
