  1. Lissa, you are fantastic. Thank you so much for answering the questions as well. I had so much fun to read your answers. :) Thank you! That person in question #85 sounds horrible! And I am glad I am not the only one who does not like olives!
    Have a great day!

    1. I was just being patient, I wasn't even listening to them, now I pretty much avoid walking behind talking people

      thanks for reading and have a lovely day.

  2. what a fun list to read! loved the one about the perogies. if you lived in Canada in the Prairies, they wouldn't be able to understand that one at all!!! we lived on perogies when I was growing up, they are a staple with German, Polish, Ukrainian people.. yummy. A dough "pocket" filled with cheeses etc..boiled and then served with sauteed onions and other toppings.

    That's a hoot about Jessica Biel. I kind of like her actually. She visited our little city on a photo shoot a couple of years ago. I feel the same way about Tom Hanks and Jim Carrey, I can't stand either of them in films.

    Have a blessed and happy Easter Lissa.

    PS: Just sent you an email too.

    1. well, I don't might tom hanks or jim carrey, they're not so bad. It's all personal tastes so I think it's okay not to like certain actors.

      thanks for reading. have a lovely day.

  3. I got just over half way through
    don't get me wrong, i enjoyed reading your answers
    but a painting is calling my name, work on me, etc
    so off i go
    fun to get to know you a little more
    I would say of the 58 I read, you and i are opposites on half of them.... ;-)

    1. I think when something calls to you or you have a certain need to do something, go right ahead, you can always come back to read this later.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  4. Such fun to read :-)

  5. Lissa, I love your illustration here. Was it intentional to have the rows of bark on the tree also look like bookshelves filled with tightly stacked/placed books? Love the tree of reading and learning here.

    Right, not onto reading your answers. Will leave a sep comment for those here! :)

    1. yes, the tree does turn into books, this is cropped version so you do not see the trees.

      thanks for reading, I know it's rather a long post. have a lovely day.

  6. Oooohhhh...such frivolous but fun questions and answers, learning new things about you on the way too. I so agree about concerts overall too--way too loud. Any until last year, I had never dressed up for Halloween either but why haven't you? Was never part of your culture perhaps?
    The lazy 37 made me lau.... :)
    31- clever answer too. :)
    I so agree on many of yours..especially musicals. LOL.

    1. yes, I do like to answer frivolous questions, it's kind of fun. as for the halloween customs, I don't think I know about it until it's too late to start but still, I've never the need to wear a costume.

      thanks for your visit. hope you have a lovely day.

  7. Haha, I started in my 40;s. Another way to be creative and expressive. Not into the gore stuff though at all.
