    Hey there! I liked your answers….
    1 – Dog person – have you seen my blog picture? – not my dog, but I dogsit him as much as possible. 2 – burbs person. 3 – rock AND country music. 4 – mountain person but okay with lakes and beaches too. 5 – NCIS all the way – can’t get enough of Gibbs (Mark Harmon) – – although I also enjoy Ducky, Abby, Tony, Ziva and McGee. 6 – stick a pencil in my eye or (e) hockey games. 7 – luxury sedan with lots of leg room. 8 – soda – Pepsi – although I haven’t had any since Oct 29/10, not that I’m counting . 9 – All of the above, I guess, although “craziest” might be too strong of an adjective. 10 – My son – in a heartbeat.

    • leannebanks says:

    7) BMW
    8) Soda (Diet Coke)
    9) All of the above

    Fun, Leanne!

    • leannebanks says:

      Kylie, haha, no cats allowed. Regarding your burbs, the key is if you can get pizza delivered. Go get your BMW girl!:) Thanks for popping in!

  6. Hellion says:

    GOOD QUIZ. 1.) No pet zone (allergic), but on the whole I prefer cats. I’ll almost always pet a cat, but dogs, it has to be pretty exceptional (I know a couple who are); 2.) Burbs for the same reasons you listed, but if I wasn’t spoiled to having a store so close, I’d be more country. I love the sound of frogs at night; 3.) Country–they have better story-songs, but rock is a very close second; 4.) Beach, how empty life would be without the ocean; 5.) Ugh, those are the choices? My eyes, my eyes. I like Castle or Modern Family; 6.) Baseball, but usually I’d rather poke my eye out than watch any of it; 7.) Again, none of those choices blow up my skirt, except the horse, which I’m allergic to; perhaps B, but if I was able to pick anything I would love to have my Ford Taurus back; 8.) Soda–Pepsi specifically; 9.) D, definitely, though with Today’s interview, Charlie’s possibly in the lead; 10.) George Clooney. He’s nice to look at but smart and political too.

    • leannebanks says:

      Hellion, cool that you love the sound of frogs at night. I used to like the sound of crickets until it turned out they were EATING my carpet padding (this happened years ago lol). So true about country music. The songs often tell a story! I enjoy Castle and I LOVE Modern Family. Haha on George Clooney. He’s turning into a big fave! Thanks for taking the quiz.:)

  7. Marilyn says:

    1. I like cats and have had several, but because I live in an apartment now, owning a cat would be a big bother and expense. So I’m a pet-free zone now.

    2. Burbs.

    3. I like most all kinds of music except rap and hip-hop. I disliked country music until about 5-6 years ago, but once I started listening I was hooked.

    4. I went to college in the Smoky Mountains and have been a mountain person ever since. My mother lives at the beach and I love the sun and sand, but the mountains comfort my soul.

    5. Harry’s Law for sure! And Castle, Law & Order SVU, CSI (the Las Vegas one only), Criminal Minds and The Closer. I stopped watching Survivor this season because I couldn’t take any more of Russell. And I’m definitely watching Idol cause we have a local fellow in the top 24 . VOTE FOR PAUL MCDONALD! And my dirty little secret is I watch Toddlers & Tiaras because it makes my life seem normal. One does what one must to maintain sanity.

    6. Baseball. I used to watch it with my daddy when I was a little girl. I need to support my local AA team this year. Thanks for the reminder!

    7. The car I have now because it’s paid for!

    8. Sweet tea, thank you. With lemon.

    9. All of the above. It’s just a matter of who’s crazier on any given day.

    10. I’d rather have dinner with Charlie Sheen than my ex-husband. My dream dinner date would be Hugh Jackman. He’s so multi-talented and intelligent, not to mention easy on the eyes. I think it would be great to talk to him provided I could stop drooling long enough to talk. ::grin::

    • leannebanks says:

      Marilynm what you said about the mountains was sweet. So cool that you know that about yourself. LOVE Harry’s Law too! I’m with you. I LOVE a car that’s paid for and is running well and gets decent gas mileage! Hugh Jackman! Excellent choice!!!:) Thanks for popping in!

  8. Hellion says:

    Actually the pizza joint might not deliver to me. I might live just far enough outside the edge of town to be disqualified from the “burbs”, but I still don’t think of where I live as “country”–my St. Louis friend does though, so maybe she’s right. Anyway, I don’t think I would want to live any closer to town, even to get pizza delivered. Or even Chinese food. There’s enough highway traffic and siren sounds as it is.

  9. Fun!
    Let’s see…Dog; live ‘burb, love country; ol’ time rock ‘n roll; mountains; Been meaning to try Harry’s Law–otherwise eh; basketball; give me a horse and a cuppa cowboy coffee; hard to tell who’s crazy and who’s crazy like a fox these days since the crazy wheels are getting all the grease; dinner with Lincoln, Obama and Mahatma Ghandi. World peace for dessert.

    • leannebanks says:

      Kathleen, how strong is a cuppa cowboy coffee?:) LOVE the crazy like a fox! SO TRUE!!! Cool combo at your dinner table and I like your dessert.:)

      • A spoon will stand straight up in cowboy coffee. Actually, I like strong coffee, but I take it “regular”–which means cream and sugar please. Cowboys take it black, of course. Cowboys don’t do any milking.

  10. lois greiman says:

    Okay, horse isn’t an option but I have to choose it anyway, country music, kinda of a rolling plains kinda girl, am liking Harry’s Law, afraid I’m not into any sports that don’t involve saddles, milk is my drink of choice, and although I don’t usually pine to have a conversation with celebs, I would consider it an honor to talk eco with Barack.

    Fun Leanne. Thanks.

    • leannebanks says:

      I put horse under the dream car for you.:) Love that you gave your choices. I would love to listen to you eco conversation with Obama! Thanks! xo
