Romi's Questions and My Answers:
Why did you start blogging?
At this point, I don't really remember. I know that many of my friends were doing it and I love to write, so it seemed to be the thing to do.
What do you like best about blogging?
It has introduced me to a multitude of different people and ideas from around the world.
Have you ever visited any foreign countries?
Only in my dreams!
If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would you go?
I would want to go to Ireland.
Do you speak any foreign languages?
I do not speak any foreign languages fluently. I know a little snippet of several different languages. When I was little, we had a set of encyclopedias and there were sections on different languages. Also, my Uncle Earl was in the US Navy and stationed several different places, one place being Greece. My cousin Debbie taught me some Greek when they came back home.
What is one thing that you like about the place where you live now?
I love the long growing season that we have in this part of Texas.
If I were to visit the city where you live as a tourist, what would you recommend I should see there?
In this town specifically, I would probably recommend the local college for the landscaping. They have really pretty flowers there. I would also recommend the museum. It has some really cool things in it.
What are your hobbies?
I like to take pictures, read, write, crochet, knit, and sew (though I haven't sewn in a long time).
What is your favorite color?
I can pin it down to just one color. The one color that I wear consistently is black.
What is your favorite musical instrument?
When I was little, around 4th grade, I wanted to learn to play the violin. As a high schooler, I wanted to play the saxophone. At this point, I don't really have a favorite instrument.
What did you have for breakfast today?
I didn't eat breakfast this morning. I don't usually. If I eat too soon after I wake up, it makes me sick.
