Take 2

I always hated playground games, I was always last to be picked. But, Sarah Fishburn tagged me! With an overwhelming amount of typing, and computer skills, so I was in, of course. Now, I’m showing everyone my determination. I will NOT be knocked down. I will , however waste 2 more precious hours, succeeding in something I’ve begun…

What’s your obsession? Painting portraits is what I can’t get enough of right now. I am painting, wishing I could, or dreaming of what I will all of the time

What would you eat for your last meal? I would drink the biggest, most expensive bottle (or 3) of Chianti. I might wash it down with some pesto pasta.

What are you wearing today? Same thing I had on yesterday.

What are you listening to right now? Churchbells, nice. Cicadas, not so much. Cat (Mini) saying "it's time to eat"

What is your favorite flavor of icecream? Icecream gives me a belly-ache.

What do you think of the person who tagged you? Sarah is an idol of mine, I’ve been a fan forever! However, right now, I am having mixed-feelings…kinda like mixed-media without the paint, pencils and fun stuff!

If you had a house totally paid for and furnished, anywhere, where would it be? Somewhere that it is always summer. With neighbors who are just like me :) Plus, could I furnish the house myself, that's where the fun is, right?

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would it be? I want to say Florance, Italy, but an hour isn’t enough time. Right now, for the next hour, I want to be be side a typist. My own personal typist, thank you.

What language would you like to learn? I'm fluent in pig-latin, ok in american, understand English...I want to pick Italian, but Spanish makes more sense.

What is your favorite color? All colors are God’s children and I love them all equally, for different reasons.

What’s your favorite piece of clothing? I have a new nightgown that is still bright white and oh, so soft! I am saving for an evening when we get company, Hey, it resembles a dress, kinda.

If you had $100 right now, what would you spend it on? Duh, I need a camera.

Who is your favorite Artist? I know everyone expects me to say Frida. But really, my favorite artist is ME!

What is your favorite season? 2 words…Sum. Mer.

Describe your personal style: I would love to call my style, bohemian rhapsody, cleanish hippie-chic, or even plain old artsy. But really it’s "’I don’t give a pluck”

What’s your favorite movie? Here, the answer is Frida. The only movie I watched more than once. Selma Hyack is outstanding.

What inspires you? Everything, no matter how ugly, makes me say, “ Now, wouldn’t that be priti, if only…”

What music do you like this week? I love Silence. In my heaven, there is complete, utter and holy Silence. But, 50 cent, Tom Petty, The Hanged Man(my son), Kanye West, Emenem, The Black-eyed Peas and Sasha Lazard are all on my i-pod.

ooops! I need to scratch my bug bites. Amuse your selves. Or you could check Bea’s Blog which I adore.

dog in the hole studio (I can’t make a link, I’m so computer illiterate)

Kelly, you would love to read her if you don’t already!

What is your dream job? I have it.

If you could change something in the world to make it a better place, what would it be? This feels like a Miss America question.

I would remove all fear.

If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be? I would make my good traits eat my bad ones. I need more tolerance to annoyances. And to be less critical.

What is you favorite perfume of all time? It’s called One. A mix of essential oils that I was too cheap to buy. But Deb got it for me, just because…

what’s your best (or most comforting) cold remedy? I never take ill! Truth!

What are your 2 best qualities? Optimism and Determination.

What are you most thankful for? The amount of Love in my life, by people I know and don’t. Love is all around if you open yourself up to possibilities. But you know that already, right?


Thank you Sarah for recognizing me.

The Rules

1) Respond&rework. Answer the questions on your blog. Replace 1 question you don’t like with one of your own. Add 1 more of your own.

(the last 2 are mine)

note: This makes for a very lengthy post


2) Tag 4 people

I can’t. I simply can’t put anyone through this. BUT…

Bea? you are such an inspirational blogger,

Kelley? I would love to know more

My daughter, Mia, (it’s only school work you’re neglecting)

Any Volunteers??

Do I have to unearth GWB to fight this unnecessary battle for me?

I love you all, kids, each and everyone,

xox, Lisa


  1. WoW! That was a lot! but I enjoyed all of it. Thanks Lisa D.

    Lisa D. (from the other side)

  2. Nice to know more about you, Lisa. I'll give it a try, but it may take awhile to get done.

  3. How nice. I feel lik eI know you better now. I liked you then and I connect with you now. Lovely responses. Thank you for sharing. This was a great tag! Hugs, Tammy

  4. LOLOLsnort you can tag me BUT I've been tagged before and what people get is that I work on ONE question at a time/post. You get waaaaaaaaaaaay more information then you ever wanted or needed. It takes me forever to get through the list of questions. In fact I think I'm still working on a tag list that Linda sent me ages ago.
    See, I do things my way..........which means people either stick with me or wander off to catch butterflies.
    BUT, I did LOVE reading your answers. Some made me laugh outloud. You are too funny.

  5. Whew! I had to declare my site a no tag zone! what a lot of work and I had to start over again, because the movie trailer would not post in the middle, in fact I think I lost a few questions! oh well, it is done! yay!!!

  6. It was fun getting to know more about you! You are just precious.


  7. Hey Sum. Mer. Sis. Ter!
