11 Questions and Secret Squirrel blurts all

I am feeling very frustrated. Blogging has fallen off my radar. I have become so busy and work is also manic, that I don't get time to blog anymore. I hate it. I miss reading all your blogs. I miss blogging regularly and reading all your comments. I am desperately trying to schedule my time better. I am, however, forever grateful that April was so quiet at work otherwise I would never had been able to complete the A-Z Challenge. How do the rest of you manage your time? Any tips?

(Ha ha! I must watch what I'm saying as I'm manifesting 'frustration'. I just had someone ring up at work shouting "I'm so frustrated!"  at me. Twice.)

Also, will whoever keeps unfollowing me, please stop! I have celebrated reaching 200 followers twice now and each time someone unfollows me and I go back to 199 and look a right plonker. Ggggrrrrr!! What is it with the unfollowing? Did I offend?

But now to part 3 of my tagging. Here are 11 questions:

1. If you were able to have one wish for yourself, and it couldnt' be anything like world peace or a cure for cancer, what would it be?

2. If you are writing a book, what is it about? Or if you're not, if you were to write a book, what type of book would it be: fiction/non-fiction; serious/funny; scary/romantic etc?

3. What is your star sign and with which bits of it's characteristics do you most identify?

4. What is one of the most defining moments of your life?

5. What is the name of best friend, how long have you known them, and why do you love him or her?

6. What do you wear in bed - nightgown, PJs, something else or so you sleep in the buff?

7. Reveal one really weird fact about yourself.

8. Which is worse: bad breath or BO?

9. Who was the one that got away?

10. Can you remember the moment you knew when you first fell in love?

11. Who is the most famous person you've met?

Now, I am supposed to tag 11 bloggers but do you know how long that takes? Bloody hours. You have to make sure it is someone you know and visit regularly (well, I do anyway) and then check they haven't been tagged recently, see if they are the sort of blog that even participates in tags and awards and the like, and then copy and paste all the links. And finally, you have to visit each of their blogs and tell them you've tagged them. Sodding hard work! And time-consuming. And, as I already mentioned, I am running short of time. So I am going to cop out this time around. Sorry. But, what I would like to do instead is challenge each of you to pick 3 questions and answer them in the comments below. Go on, pleeeease, so I won't feel so bad for not doing the tagging part.

Ssshhhhh Secret Squirrel - we tortured SS and he was a wuss and caved instantly:
I was asked to be a guest on a pilot for a new chat show ON TELEVISION as they had seen my blog and thought my 'story' was very interesting. OMFG, can you imagine how excited I was? I wanted to jump up and down with joy, but then remembered that I have had two kids and no longer possess a pelvic floor. Jumping of any sort is strictly verboten. Unless I am wearing incontinence pants and they really are so unattactive. Anyhooo, after raising my hopes and getting me all of a bother and eating nothing but lettuce for two weeks (ha ha), they apparently don't need me for the pilot after all. I am crushed and feeling like Charlie Brown when Lucy doesn't throw the ball to him again.

Yum - any excuse to have a pic of this pair!
However, they are still interested in having me guest if it gets taken up into a series, which it is quite likely to do (as the 'star' is awesome and will make a fabulous host). This is actually better for me as it has really given me a kick up the arse to get my bloody book finished so that I will have something to actually publicise if I ever do get interviewed. I feel this is one step closer to manifesting my dream of having the film made of my 'story' and getting to rub shoulders (or anything else that I can manage to rub without a restraining order) with Brad and George.


  1. Don't worry about the tagging, it is hard work and even harder to choose who to tag next. There are too many wonderful bloggers out there and I always feel bad about leaving someone out. So I always cop out.

    Boo on not being a guest on the chat show pilot. Yaay for still having the chance to appear if it takes off.
    And LOL for the part about your pelvic floor muscles. I'm definitely with you on that one.

  2. First, I heart all those questions (but don't feel I've got it in me to tackle them right now). (Oh, yeah - and where are YOUR answers to them, huh, huh, huh???) ;-)

    Some Dark Romantic

  3. Congrats on the great news and yeah with questions I surely lose haha

  4. 7. I collect nail polish like most women collect shoes.

    8. B.O.

    11. It's a toss up between Tom Hanks and Peter Jackson. Love them both and both were extremely nice.

  5. Well I was going to answer to #7: I can name all the monarchs & the years of their reigns from Henry IV on, and the birth and death dates for everyone Henry VIII on, but then it occurred to me to wonder... can most English people, or at least most English school children, do the same thing? So it might only be weird for an American.

  6. Bah, the followers that are unfollowing are probably those people who follow a blog in hopes that the author will follow them back (did that make sense?). I've had a few of them myself.

    And, if I ever host a show, you'll be on the guest list; don't you worry. And, what on Earth are those underwear thing-a-ma-jigs?!

  7. I have the same follow, unfollow thing on Twitter. It makes me crazy. Congrats on the possible guest spot! I'd definitly tune in to watch. And lastly, you aren't kidding that it's a lot of work to pass these awards on. Som 3 answers:#3- I'm a Gemini and I have very definite mood swigs and can be a bit of a schitzo sometimes. #9- he was a roadie, Brittish, his name was Chris and I was only seventeen and too chicken to go off with him. #11- Probably Slash who was working with a friend's husband and I met him at another friend's preschool. He was sooo opposite of his image. I've also met Homer Simpson on several occassions, well the guy who plays him.

  8. To answer question 1. This is what I would wish for:

  9. First, yay you! Keep manifesting and do not give up!!! Your day is juuuussst around the corner!!!! Now for the questions - #2, Yes I am and it's about me! :D #3, Aries, first sign of the zodiac, I'm number 1! ; ) #6, my birthday suit!
