Five Things: Old School Blogging

I saw this link-up series in a post on Olive to Run last month when she did the ABC’s of Blogging, and I can’t lie – I saw this month’s survey on her blog this morning. I came home late last night, became engrossed in the book I’m reading. Before I knew it was bedtime, and I hadn’t written a post.

So in flys this cute little survey, just in time to save the day! I think surveys are so fun.

Question of the Day:
What’s one of your favorite catch phrases?



  1. I love that PB was the first thing you listed as your passion.
    Also, LOVE Jodi Picoult!! AND I also thought Silver Linings Playbook was one of the best movies made in a very long time…. the honesty and realness was perfect.

  2. I read the Dave Eggers book way back when, and it has remained one of my favorites – you have good taste! 🙂
    Thanks for playing along and linking up!
