An Interview With Aunt Becky

Good Morning Humble Readers...

Aunt Becky has invited one and all to participate in her interview for a giveaway... And who doesn't love answering completely random questions? (If you don't know who Aunt Becky is, you need to click over and do some reading... HI-LAR-I-OUS!)

And Aunt Becky says... I’m always telling you to shut your whore mouth. Now it’s time to open it.

1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream? Nope! Give me strawberries or raspberries!

2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why? Too easy... that word would be 'moist'... if it's possible to hate a word, I HATE that word! It give me goosebumps and causes me to shudder. Blech!

3) If you were a flavor, what would it be? Hmmmm... a combination of sundried tomatoes, feta cheese, and oregano.

4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis? It's one I actually don't do any more... the laundry. I can't stand it, and there's never any end to it, even just for two people. My Beloved has become very proficient at doing the laundry.

5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself) I have had a lot of nicknames... far too many actually. But my favourite was from a college friend. He called me Bob. And it wasn't just 'Bob', it was more like Baawwb. There was a nickname that everyone else in my circle used for me in college, but he didn't want to use that one, so he called me Bob. I know it's nothing spectacular, but it always made me smile.

6) You’re stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they? John Williams (because I love movie soundtracks!), Sting, New Kids On The Block (because I'm just that much of a geek!), the Beatles, and Beethoven. Ecclectic enough for you?

7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false? Very VERY false! The falsest statement ever!
8 ) If I could go back in time and tell Young Aunt Becky one thing, it would be that out of chaos, order will emerge. Also: tutus go with everything. What would you tell young self? This older, wiser hobbit would tell her younger self not to stress about Mr. Right. I spent too much time and energy worrying about if I would ever meet 'him'. I would tell the younger hobbit (also known as MissBaggins) that he's out there, and he's more amazing that I could have ever imagined.

And in an hommage to Kristen of Dragondreamer fame, if you can think of any more random questions for me, I would love to answer them!


  1. Cool! What's the most embarrassing thing you will admit to having done and why did you do it?

  2. #6 - New Kids on the Block.. I freakin love it! I would even take just Donnie. :)

  3. Have you ever broken any limbs and had a cast?


  4. If you won a contest for $10,000 and guaranteed one month off work with no problems for both you and your Beloved. Where would you go? What would you do?


Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
