Getting to Know You

The mega-awesome Fatty McCupcakes nominated me to do this Getting to Know You award, which was created by Stomper Dad.  You can read Miss McCupcakes’ answers here. As usual, she is freaking hilarious and deserving of all the followers ever.

1. Who are you named after?

My late mother. As much as this honors me, check out my post about why I also hate it so much.

2. Do you like your handwriting?

Yes! I’ve gotta say, I am proud of my penmanship. I’ve been told it looks like a font before!

3. What is your favorite lunch meat?

Um, none of them? Seriously. Gross. Meat. Blech. (I’m a mostly recovered vegetarian who still basically hates meat unless it’s a chicken nugget).

4. Longest relationship?

Let’s see, I first met coffee when I was a small child, and it was love at first aroma. Once I had my first sip I was hooked for life… 😍

Oh, you meant longest romantic relationship? Well, my husband and I started dating about six years ago.

5. Do you still have your tonsils?


6. Would you bungee jump?

Heck no, techno.

7. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?

Always. I pay good money for my shoes, so I’d hate to stretch them out due to laziness.

8. Favorite ice cream?

Y’all. Don’t kill me. BUT: I don’t like ice cream. Sorry, it’s just so….cold. And hard. Give me fro-yo or give me death.

9. What is the first thing you notice about people?

Whether they smile back when I smile at them. 

10. Football or baseball?

American football all the way! Go Panthers!!

11. What color pants are you wearing?

American definition or British definition? If American, J. Crew jeans. If British, wouldn’t you like to know? 😘

12. Last thing you ate?

A bowl of Special K cereal. Dry (no milk or anything) because I’m weird.

13. If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

Fuchsia. It’s my absolute favorite color!

14. Favorite smell?

Freshly ground coffee beans.

15. Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?

A coworker who lives in New Orleans.

16. Hair color?

Red, or strawberry blonde if we’re going to get technical.

17. Eye color?


18. Favorite foods to eat?

Carrots, peanut butter, and Greek yogurt would be the top three.

19. Scary movies or happy endings?

Happy endings!

20. Last movie you watched?

Y’all know I hate movies. Um, I’m trying to even remember … I guess Rogue One maybe?

21. Favorite holiday?


22. Beer or wine?

Wine! I loathe beer. 

23. Night owl or early bird?

Early bird. I am at my peak between 5 AM and 1 PM.

24. Favorite day of the week?


24.5 Noms?

I nominate Paul from Paul E. Bailey’s World, Jeff Cann from his eponymous blog, and Jey from Thursday in August.

25. Last three people to follow your blog?

Gemma Dickson, Spirit of Seva, and The Paranormal Chronicles

Until next time,

xoxo Charlotte 


  1. Fuchsia is maybe my second fave color (I think Aqua wins out overall πŸ˜‰ ) I love the mixture of both together actually… But that being said my favorite lipstick is called “Fuchsia Forever” πŸ˜‰

    And hey – twinsies with the Strawberry blonde hair πŸ˜› Except… you know… I dye mine dark reds and black these days…

    • Thank you so much, Diana! I love getting to know the bloggers I follow better. Just learning little quirks or likes/dislikes about people is so cool.

      And haha yeah, I love me some coffee! πŸ˜‰


  2. You are too kind, lady!! I am so glad you did this. However, I have to ask…one of your favorite foods is carrots???!! Oh man, I don’t know if we can be friends now. Hehe. I kid. Maybe if one of my fav foods was carrots, I would not be Fatty McCupcakes πŸ˜‰

  3. Dude! You just had to nominate me didn’t you?! Haha. Thank you for thinking of me. I’m most flattered. I’ll get round to answering the questions as soon as I can. I’ve got a load of awards to accept yet as well (obviously because I’m so damned good. Yeah, right). Some unexpected answers in there along with entirely expected ones. You are an interesting lady and in the best possible way πŸ™‚

    • Dude! Yes, I did have to nominate you! Lol, you are welcome. You’ve got loads of awards to accept because you *are* that good. And thank you! I realize I’m rather eclectic in my predilections, so interesting is a compliment I get often. Although now you’ve got my curious as to which answers were unexpected.

      • I wouldn’t have expected you not to be into ice cream. I love it. I used to have an obsession with mint choc chip ice cream and mint choc donuts together in a bowl, but then the supermarket that did the donuts stopped selling them and I’ve been pining over it for years. Frozen yogurt just doesn’t do it for me. And Special K with no milk…were you trying to exfoliate your throat? Haha. In saying that my son likes to eat dry cereal.
        I will get around to doing this. Perhaps the post after next. It’s another chapter of Find Me a Find next πŸ™‚

      • I think the ice cream feeling is a texture thing. It’s just such a bizarre texture to me. Plus my teeth are sensitive to cold.

        And haha do you *not* exfoliate your throat on a regular basis??

      • I suppose I do on reflection. I do enjoy my crisps (chips) and they’re pretty scratchy. The sensitivity thing makes sense. I have to be wary of how I eat things for the same reason as some of my teeth are sensitive.

    • Aw, thank you Chrissey!! I feel the exact same way. I just love getting to know my blogger friends better and get to know who they are as a person! And haha oh my gosh that is not weird at all – I am actually the opposite. I love cooked carrots but don’t like them raw lol.


  4. […] Lifestyle blogger Charlotte Graham nominated me for the Getting to Know You Award. This sort of recognition thing is pretty far outside my comfort and interest zone, but I suppose I deserve it. I just got through crying about how I’m not getting enough WordPress love.Charlotte writes an active blog equally split between food, fashion, geekdom and running (guess how I got involved). The Getting to Know You Award asks a bunch of deep questions…Β Charlotte’s answers are here. […]
