Tagged, One Year

Saturday, October 16, 2010


I was tagged by at Whatcha Readin', Books? and I haven't done one of these before. I don't think I've actually said too much personal stuff about myself on this blog, so here we go.

Rules of the game (if you wish to participate):

- Accept the tag and link to the tagger at the beginning of your post.

- Answer the questions honestly in your post by listing four things.

- Pass on the love by picking four other people to tag and listing them at the bottom of your post.
Notify them that you tagged them.

Jenners said...

Happy Anniversary!! Love the photo! And you're right ... you don't share too much personal stuff on your blog. It was nice to get to know you better.

She said...

Jeopardy! YES. I just saw a Jeopardy daily calendar for 2011 and was so tempted to buy it.

Happy One Year Anniversary! Beautiful photo of the two of you. I love Jeopardy and would love to compete some day! ;)

Alexandra said...

That is one great wedding photo! You guys look so happy! What series do you follow? I'm watching too many for my own good (House, Castle, The Mentalist, The Good Wife, Glee...). There's not enough hours in the day :)

Avid Reader said...

Thanks for all the wonderful wishes guys! I can't believe it's been already been a year.

She - They have Jeopardy daily calendars!!! No way.

Wingchair - I would love to compete on Jeopardy too, but I'm worried I'd forget to answer in the form of a question or hit my clicker at the right time. I'm sure it's so much easier in your own living room.

Alexandra - I'm a House, Castle and Glee fan too. I also love 30 Rock, Dexter, Mad Men and The Office... wow, I watch too much TV.

Jeanne said...

Happy anniversary, after the fact. Someday we'll have to have a G&T together--you know, Ford Prefect says they're the only universal drink!

Avid Reader said...

Jeanne - I'm in. And Ford was just brilliant.

Amanda said...

Happy anniversary, dear lady.
