Christmas, Friends

One Word Holiday- Jeanette

With every submission I receive, I am more and more in love with this idea.
It is like receiving a Christmas card in my inbox every time I get a new email from my family and friends with their answers.
I hope you all are enjoying this as much as I am.

Today I am featuring my friend Jeanette, who I met at my first blogging event ever in Chicago several years ago.
So she holds a special place in my heart.
Because she shared her scotch tape and markers with me.
And she was really, really nice to me when I was really, really nervous.

Rawr. Sexy mama.

What about Oprah annoys you the least?

I’m not sure- I may be the only woman in American who doesn’t follow Oprah. Maybe the fact that her initials spell “OW” is my favorite thing. Er, least annoying thing.

Now THAT is my most favorite thing about her.

Who is your favorite family member? Why?

My dog, hands down. I love the way she doesn’t speak, wiggles almost in half, and eats her poo. It’s endearing.

My fish is my most favorite family member because she doesn’t give me attitude. 

What is your favorite blog and why? (not mine)

I would put Remodelista up there- it makes me simultaneously drooly and depressed. And it also triggers my pinning finger like no other.

Pinning finger is a real thing.  Also: click on Remodelista’s name to go to the website. You are welcome. 

What holiday food item would you take a bath in if no one was looking?

I would immerse myself in a mammoth turkey carcass filled with stuffing and just hang out there until the new year.

But it is so nice and warm in there. 

What one present do you hope to receive this year?

I want a giant house in the shape of a pony, where you walk in through the nose holes and each hoof is a bedroom and the tail is an indoor pool and the ears are hovercrafts that shoot off into the deep blue sky whenever you want to go for a spin and then, of course, there is a rumpus room in the pony’s belly.

You had me at “walk in through the nose holes”…..

If you only had the money to make one holiday dish, which one?

Garlic mashed potatoes- boil a bunch of red potatoes, drain ’em, dump a shit ton of butter and half and half and roasted garlic and salt and pepper. Oh, yum.

Is “shit ton” more like one cup or two? 

What one celebrity is your absolute favorite?

I’m gonna go with Trump I mean Paula Malcomson, who plays Abby in Ray Donovan. I cannot get enough of that woman. Or that show, for that matter.

Need to look her up because I am not cultured. See Tori and Dean. 

If you could have your own television show, what would YOU give to your guests as your big giveaway?

I’d make everyone take home goldfish in plastic baggies, but then I’d give everyone a giant glam vacation.


What one thing (besides any religious beliefs) is your favorite part of the holiday season?

The candle and twinkle lights. All that glowiness makes me the happiest girl on earth.

Me too. And the word glowiness. 

If you could say one word to describe my blog, what would it be?


Thank you. 

Thank you so much, my friend.
I think after reading her answers, you can see why I fell in love with her in the first place.
