Tag Tip: Spider Webs Are Useful When You're 'It'

Initially, when I think of the game of tag, I think of animals. In elementary school, a few of my friends and I made up our own version of tag. We each picked animals whose "powers" we could use in the game. For example, we could use the spider's ability to weave webs to snare someone we were trying to tag. Once, we got so caught up in playing that everyone went inside and we didn't even notice!

What do you think of when you the hear the word tag?

Enough reminiscing (for me anyway, I really would like y'all to answer the above question). There is a more immediate matter at hand. Trisha, at W O R D + S T U F F, has tagged me with this set of questions.

Do you think you're hot?

I don't just think so, I know so. After all, it's over 100 degrees outside.

Upload a picture or wallpaper that you're using at the moment.

Madeline made this for me. I intended to put it on my YouTube page, but apparently you can't do that. As of such, I use it as a background.

When was the last time you ate chicken meat?

Today actually. Lizzie, her mom, Jess, and I were at the mall and I just couldn't resist eating the last few bites of Jess's chicken sandwich  from Chick-fil-A. It was probably the best thing I've smelled all day.

The song(s) you listened to recently.

I can't remember specifically. Country songs for sure as that was the station playing in the car. I know I sung to them, but sometimes, when it's a song I know, I sing to the lyrics without thinking about the words.

What were you thinking as you were doing this?

Why the hell does it keep telling me an error occurred while saving?

Do you have nicknames? What are they?

Basically just Brooke as my full name is Brooklynn. Some call me Brookie and my NaNa calls me Brookie Cookie (and my sister is Skye Pie). Oh, and my reading teacher has taken to calling me Brooklynn with an N ever since I complained to her how everyone misspells my name.

Tag 8 blogger friends...
  1. Madeline
  2. Izzy
  3. Angela Scott
  4. Michael Offutt
  5. Bess Weatherby
  6. Teralyn Ross Pilgrim
  7. Misha
  8. Michelle Merrill
Who's listed as No. 1?

Madeline. We've been friends for over a year now. I'm keeping where we met a secret. I bet you'll never guess.

Say something about No. 5

Something about No. 5.

XD Seriously, though, Bess's blog is a great, uplifting place to visit for laughs and a nanny's inside scoop on NYC. 

How did you get to know No. 3?

I met her through the Second Writers Platform Building Crusade. I consume her blog on a regular basis; it's like the perfect cake, light but filling.

How about No. 4.

I met Michael through the Crusade as well. I knew he must be awesomesauce. I mean, after all, his avatar is a Pokemon.

Leave a message for No. 6.

I'm waiting for the beep. I think you need a new answering machine, Teralyn, this one's broken. Be sure to find time for one amidst all your conference preparation. 

Leave a lovey dovey message for No. 2.

Dearest Izzy,

I do hope to find you in good health. I am writing to express my undying friendship. My heart might stop if you don't reply. So please, if you valuable my life at all, leave a comment.


Do No. 7 and No. 8 have any similarities?

Both their names start with M? Oh, and they're both female. Okay, here's a good one. They both have very unique blogging styles and both have a special feature on Fridays.
