Bevity is the soul of...being brief?

Nancy over at The Zimmer Zoo tagged me for this meme, a fun one where all answers must only be one word long. This should be especially challenging for me, as in most of my writing, I'm generally of the opinion: why use 1 word when 10 would suffice? Yes, I can be rather...wordy. But today, I'll be one-word-y.


The rules are these: answer the following questions with one word answers, then pass the award on to seven others.

1. Where is your cell phone? Purse
2. Where is your significant other? Meeting
3. Your hair color? Blonde
4. Your mother? Buffalo
5. Your father? Buffalo
6. Your favorite thing? Family
7. Your dream last night? None
8. Your dream/goal? Writer
9. The room you're in? Family
10. Your hobby? Reading
11. Your fear? Zombies
12. Where do you want to be in six years? Here
13. Where were you last night? Home
14. What you’re not? Energetic
15. One of your wish list items? Time
16. Where you grew up? Buffalo
17. The last thing you did? Blog
18. What are you wearing? Clothes
19. Your TV? Working!
20. Your pet? Imaginary
21. Your computer? Computing
22. Your mood? Tired
23. Missing someone? Friends
24. Your car? Van
25. Something you’re not wearing? Makeup
26. Favorite store? Grocery
27. Your summer? Wonderful
28. Love someone? Many
29. Your favorite color? Black
30. When is the last time you laughed? Minutes
31. Last time you cried? Reading

I pass this along to:

1. Giovanna Diaries

2. Snickollet I know you don't do meme's, but this one is only 31 words. Oh heck, feel free to skip it! That goes for any of you who don't want to do it...I had to pick SEVEN people! Seven, I tell you!

3. Melodie at Me & My Girls

4. Three Under Two at Lit & Laundry

5. Two Moms and A Baby, though I only expect one of the moms to participate :)

6. LauraC at Laura's Mommy Journal

7. Mary Ellen at Snacks, Please!

Plus whoever wants to play along...I love all the blogs I read!

Thanks for playing :)

I love that your pet is imaginary and that your favorite store is the grocery store...is that because of the coffee? ;)

Ok....Stephen King? How are you starting a SK book now? Have you finished the book club book?

Thanks! This looks like a fun meme.

Your parents were buffalos? [spellchecker just told me that's buffaloes. That looks just totally wrong to me. Now my comment is getting tangential. . .]
