Ask Away Friday - THE Funniest Blogger I Know

GUESS WHAT?! It's ASK AWAY FRIDAY with one of my girls, ECHO! 
   
What is #AskAwayFriday? Well…
#AskAwayFriday was created by the amazing Penny from Real Housewife of Caroline County as a place for us to connect with other bloggers by asking them ten questions to really get to know them. The sky is the limit with the questions you ask! Meeting other bloggers and making new friends is one of the best parts of this online world!

Echo blogs at Domain of the Mad Mommy and if you haven't been to her blog before then get prepared for a laughing snort fest. She's a homeschooling mother of two, a blogger who dreams of being a pioneer woman, and honestly...I cannot stress enough how funny this girl is! I'll let you figure out why I call her the meme queen (though I kind of give it away in #7 below) and I'm a strong believer that her blog is going places. Keep an eye out for her! AND HEY! You're welcome. You're going to love her just like me!
 

Here we go....!

1. So, you and are blog are totally AWESOME! Was Dylan your only inspiration for blogging? 
Thank you! Though Dylan is my little muse, I’ve been blogging since…geez, I don’t know, 2000? The blogs are embarrassing, please don't look them up! I was 16...and let's just say Dylan makes for much better blogging.

2. When was the first time that you called yourself a blogger? Either out loud or to yourself. Referring to myself as a blogger aint no thang. Referring to myself as a writer…now THAT’S a term I used to fumble with. I mean, Bob Dylan is a writer, J.D. Salinger is a writer, Tom Robbins? A writer. Me? Yeah! 

3. What is your FAVORITE post that you have written so far? What is one that you wish you didn't post? Sharing my words makes me feel naked… my stomach drops with each click of “Publish"...and yet I'm elated each time. I finished a post! I made it! Out of my brain! lol Here's one I won't read...lol  And this is my fave.

4. Dylan is seriously adorable and so expressive! What are a few of your FAVORITE Dylan faces? (Pictures please!!!!) It's cute but I know what it really is: his father. His infamous expressions are so distracting in conversation....!  
Recent faces

I put this one together a year ago



5. If I said, "In West Philadelphia..", how would you respond? Uhm…just outright in song of course! …born and raised, on the playground is where I spent most of my days…! 

6. We have both had a lot of hair colors and styles, what has been your favorite and what has been your least favorite? (Bonus if you have pictures!) THIS IS DIFFICULT! So many fun looks but I do miss having fun hair and being brunette.. 


7. You call me the meme queen, but the force is strong with you as well! What is your absolute favorite meme/gif? Psh let’s clear this up. You’re the meme queen because you have an amazing knack for telling an entire story through a series of memes, whereas I’m a common peasant that digs ‘em up to share on g+! Here’s a hilarious meme I don't dare share with g+ circles because I [usually] like my profane and untasteful sense of humor closeted. 

8. Eight is great, tell me your favorite... 
color: Red! 
food: My mom makes so many yummy German dishes, my mother-in-law makes a signature dish called tres-carnes, my husband makes such a good meat & potatoes…but everyone knows that I order chicken fingers w/ranch dressing EVERYWHERE I go. Sad. 
movie: No Country For Old Men...yes I'm a boy.
book: Skinny Legs and All, Catcher In The Rye, Slaughterhouse Five, Do Androids Dream of Electronic Sheep, The Little Prince, and a dozen others. Please don’t make me pick, lol 
item of clothing: Depends on my mood. Leather shorts are my favorite right now, mostly because I got them for $5 at my favorite brand’s (BB Dakota) warehouse sale. 
room in your house: Dylan’s room! It’s spacious, it’s space’d out with planets/stars, all my books are on his book shelf, he has a freaking slide and all the fun! I’m jealous….oh to be a kid. 
TV show: SUITS! 
Dylan led activity: Reading him books! He brings me a book, sits on my lap and says, "More?" I melt! 

9. Tamara and I are flying in to visit! (Hypothetically, although I wish we could FOR REAL!) What is our agenda? What will you show us? Where will you take us? What shenanigans await?  Okay since you’re both my girls I’m going to give you a real So. Cal. experience! 
Friday: We’re going to Laguna Beach to walk around and if you want, we can go in the water too. But we’re mostly there for the environment…when we get there you’ll see what I mean. We’ll have Mexican food and margaritas. You deserve it, it was a long flight out. 
Saturday: Going to recruit my husband to take us to L.A. for his Hollywood tour. Playboy mansion? Check. Celebrity homes? Check. Biggest house in California, Hollywood sign, Los Angeles Observatory, couple of autographs? Yes! Then off to Venice beach so you can see what types of freaks make up the Golden State. I’m cramming a lot in for a Saturday but we have to go to Santa Monica Pier, take photobooth pics, then head back to Orange County for Roscoes Chicken & Waffles.
ROSCOES
Sunday? We’ll go to my favorite brunch overlooking a man-made (lol) baby lake near my house, so we can drink bottomless mimosas and stuff our face. Yup, I’m sending you home drunk and full! Next time bring the kids so we can do San Diego! 

10. If you could impart one piece of wisdom/advice to people. What would you want them to know? Can everyone take a moment and try to answer this question? IT’S HARD HUH! I’m going to borrow one of my favorite gems of wisdom from the closing of a Native American Prayer, “When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.” Too heavy? lol 


Thank you Echo! You are so fun and that last question was a toughy! <3!
