  1. I love that one on your list is about your cousins coming up from Georgia, that's wonderful. I'm very close with mine and actually host a 'cousins night' once a month at my house. I haven't over the past few months because it's been crazy, but we're all really close. Theres alot that live in other states so we're sure to call them to say hello.

    Love your list :)


  2. I never had any brothers or sisters so my cousins have been some of the most important people in my life. I love them all so much. I like your idea of a cousins night. When I get my own place that might be a good thing to start.

  3. Number 4 on "4 Shows I watch" is listed as "3." Also, I'm from Georgia!

    1. It's so majestic in woodlands and plains with the snow everywhere.
    2. The glistening of the sun upon the snow.
    3. Blankets of snow overlaying fields.
    4. Heating units.

    4 Things on My Wishlist:

    1. A respectable publication.
    2. A successful publication.
    3. A visual adaptation of a successful publication.
    4. Enough money to pay off my debts.

  4. I just started watch "The Walking Dead." I'm not sure how much I like it. I think it's well made and the story is good so far. I think I'm just missing the fact that there are few people my age in it and the female element hasn't been established quite yet.

    I tto want to visit England, but I want to see my other 4 places first or maybe I can stop by when I got to Ireland.

    I feel you on that successul publication thing. I just need to start writing as furiously as I was before.

  5. When did you start watching it? I can't vouch for the people our age, but there have been some female elements thrown in.

    Honestly, I'd be fine with visiting anywhere in Europe. I'm considering studying abroad somewhere over there.

  6. I know how you feel about what the blog is about. That's the biggest reason I started the other one so I could be a bit more random, but you know? It's all about the writing, no matter what you write really, at least for me. I'm still trying to reconcile my thoughts with my writing blog to see if I should just dedicate it to writing period and do all the wild crazy stuff on the other one or what. These questions and stuff have been a lot of fun though and I've enjoyed learning stuff about you and trying to come up with answers to your questions too, which I'm obviously still working on!

    <3 Donna

  7. Matt...I've watched it from the beginning. I'm actually watching ep. 5 right now. I love zombies and all, but I don't know. It's not clicking with me.

    Donna...I think I just need to get over the it and realize that it doesn't matter because it's all for fun anyway. I can write about whatever as long as I stick to my passions. Sound good. lol.

  8. That's unfortunate. Have you read the comics? Did you know that the effects artist for some of George Romero's films works as a producer on this show (Greg Nicotero).

  9. That should be a question mark at the end. Grr.

  10. No, I never read the comics (didn't know it was comics before) and I didn't know any of that. Interesting stuff though. I'm watch ep. 6 right now. I do like how fast-paced they are. I'm thinking the problem is that I don't love one of the characters yet. No cute boy to oogle and no girl I want to be yet. I did have hopes for Sarah Wayne Callies because I liked her when she was in Prison Break with Wentworth Miller (Yum!) but the whole I-left-my-husband-to-die-while-I-cheated-with-his-best-friend just ruined it! That's slowly being redeemed though.

  11. I just wanna know what happens to Merle. And I think his ignorant brother (the guy from The Boondock Saints) is supposed to be the women's eye candy.

  12. Yeah, they did just kind of leave Merle hanging there. And maybe, he's a bit too much of a jerk for me though.

  13. I think he's gonna come around. He has been learning to be more tolerant.

  14. I want to be tagged ;( Insightful info there. And surprisingly similar to mine in certain instances.Especially Vampire Diaries - read all the books and now I crave time with Damon anyway I can get it. X

  15. You should just do it. I can add your name and you can say I tagged you. lol. I'd love to see your answers! Yes, loving the Vampire Diaries show, and now I am reading the first book. I hope Elena stops being a brat in the books though. lol. And yes, loving Damon as well. Did you see that I added him as part of my perfect man in "Let the Answers be Given Part 2?" I just love his eyes!!!
