Some Stuff About Me

This is another bloggy thing to do, found on Tonja's Gatherings. I've seen it on a few other sites as well and thought I'd play along.

1. If you could build a house anywhere, where would it be?

I really like the Orem area. However, given that we're smack dab on top of an earthquake fault, I'd have to give that some serious thought.

2.What is your favorite article of clothing?

I like sweatpants to hang around the house in. But if I'm going somewhere and want to look nice, either my blue shoes or my brown shoes. Do shoes count as clothes?

3. Last C.D. you bought?

Josh Groban's "Closer."

4. Where is your favorite place to be?

At home with my family when everyone is cooperating and we're just spending time together.

5. Least favorite place to be?

At home with my family when everyone is grumpy and the house is a mess and we're all fighting.

6. Are you strongest in mind or body?

My mind is by far stronger.

7. What time do you wake up?

Around nine a.m. This is because I'm usually up until around 3 a.m. But why am I making excuses? I can be in bed 'til nine if I want!

8. Favorite kitchen appliance?

Dishwasher. Definitely.

9. What instrument would you like to play?

I have always wanted to learn how to play the piano.

10. Favorite color?

Now, this is going to sound ultra-girly of me, but I've always enjoyed various shades of pink. Burgundy, mauve, maroon, baby pink -- you name it. Then I ended up marrying a man by the last name of Pinkston. This wasn't intentional -- I actually liked him before I knew his last name. But now when I tell people I like pink, they think that's so corny. And, to make it worse, all the styles of house I really like are pink stone. I can just see it now: "George, take this flyer over the Pinkston's house. Theirs is the pink stone house."

I also like forest green, sage green, navy, country blue, gray, lavender, and plum.

11. Sports car or SUV?

Neither! Give me practicality, any day.

12. Favorite children's book?

"But Not the Hippopotamus" by Sandra Boynton.

13. Favorite season?

I love spring and I love fall. I hate being too hot and I hate being forced to wear a jacket.

14. Least favorite chore?

Taking out the trash and helping my children clean their rooms, which is essentially also taking out the trash.

15. Favorite day?

Monday. And I'm not teasing. On Sunday, I make my goals and think about what I need to accomplish, and by the time Monday morning hits, I'm raring to go.

16. Favorite food?

I really like fast food Mexican, and I'm quite partial to the new Wendy's chicken bacon swiss that they are offering right now. But I like it without the sauce. Let's see -- pizza, of course, and I really do enjoy chocolate.

17. Favorite drink?

I like water (no, I really do) and I like cream soda.

18. Favorite word?

That changes. Right now it's "Mama." My two-year-old has been calling me, and everyone else, "Daddy" for a really long time and he just started calling me "Mama." It's music to my ears.

19. Favorite inspirational book?

Oh, wow. That's a hard one. Let's say "The Cedar Post" by Rose.

20. Who would you like to play you in the movie of your life?

Meg Ryan.

Great answers. I may do this one when I can drum up the time. Kiddo is home for spring break and hubby decided to stay home to work on fix-it jobs. They have no idea how time-consuming it is just having them home!

Thanks for visiting my blog. When you say you write LDS novels, are you referring to Latter-Day Saints? I keep thinking of the quote in Star Trek IV: "He took a little too much LDS in the Sixties." ;)

Hi, BookFool!

Yep, that's LDS as in Latter-day Saint. That is a great Star Trek quote -- us LDS people loved it. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow! Your little one lets you sleep in until 9:00. That's great. What do I do to keep my four year old from coming in every morning to tell me it's time to get up?

Tristi Pinkston said...

I'm actually very blessed in this regard, Marcia. Right now I'm at a point where my kids are pretty content to get up, grab a yogurt, and read or draw until I get up. I've taught my two oldest how to make bottles, and sometimes they'll even team up and change and dress the two-year-old for me. Believe me, though, it did not happen overnight and it wasn't easy. :)

You know Where I live in Orem is probably the best place to be in an earthquake. But where you live you may have to deal with liquifaction. move up on the bench. I'll keep my eyes open for a place up here. of course you'll have to deal with a trillion rocks a year in the garden. they seem to grow or multiply, your choice.

Nichole Giles said...

I think it's only fitting that you love pink. It is a completely girl color, and having the name of Pinkston should only serve to seal the deal.

There is a family in my neighborhood with the last name of Green. The soffit and facia of their house is all bright green.

No one ever wonders which house the Green's live in. :o)

Fun blog.
