Tagging....and not the illegal kind!

Louise over at My Journey To Eliminate Debt was kind enough to Tag me on this Meme.  Although, I will tell ya Louise....I wasn't able to cut and past the questions, and I had to rekey them....I am a lazy girl!!  Extra work....ick.  ;)

Here are the rules...

#1 - Post these rules.
#2 - Answer the 11 questions from the person who tagged you.
#3 - Create 11 new questions for the people you tag.
#4 - Tag 11 people and link them to your post.
#5 - Let them know that you tagged them.

So, here are my answers to her probing questions:

  1. Favorite MovieGrease.  I saw it for the first time when I was about 9, and fell in love.  Other favorite movies include That Thing You Do (catchy tune), Rock Star (no idea why, it just sucks me in), and A.I. (not a well known movie, but excellent). How is that for some variety?
  2. Most Frugal Recipe.  I will admit, this is not one of my specialities.  I tend to find recipes that need 400 ingredients, and they are all weird and specialty.  But I do make a Chicken Mexican Stew that is pretty inexpensive, easy, and quick!
  3. What superhero would you like to be?  In the world of "real" superheros, I would pick Batman.  C' car, cool outfit.  In the world of made up superheros, I would be Captain Cleaning!
  4. If you would only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be?  A Wrinkle in Time.  LOVE that book.
  5. Who was your favorite teacher, and why?  I really never had a favorite teacher.  Maybe my Biology teacher in High School.  I ended up being his teacher's assistant later on.
  6. What brand name product do you refuse to give up to save money?  Coffeemate Flavored Creamer.  I need it for my coffee in the morning, and will NOT give it up.
  7. Most memorable sporting moment you have seen.  Not much of a sports gal.  But I guess the '98 Superbowl, as we got married the day before, and on our mini-honeymoon, the only thing open was sports bars, so we had to watch.
  8. The one makeup item you couldn't live without.  Foundation.  I have such uneven skin!
  9. Do you have a nickname and how did you get itNope.  Sorry.
  10. If you could choose any job, what would it be.  I would be a painter/wallpaper person.  Not design.  Just the grunt work.  I love painting walls!
  11. How did you meet your best friend.  I have 2 BFF.  My oldest and dearest BFF, I met in Math class in 11th grade.  My other BFF I met on-line on an infertility website.
And my questions....
  • What financial decision would you still do, knowing what you know now?
  • First car?
  • Favorite meal?
  • Pancakes or Waffles?
  • If you could change your real name, what would you pick?
  • How did you meet your significant other?
  • How do you take your coffee?
  • What color do you have the most of in your wardrobe?
  • If you had $10,000 to spend on a vacation (and only on a vacation!!!), where would you go?
  • If you have kids...biggest parenting mistake.  If you don't, what one thing do you hope you never do?
  • What one thing do you not like to admit about yourself?

And my taggees, in an attempt to pick people who haven't been tagged yet....
