Jenners Tagged Me


To answer some questions! 

I would be happy to!  I am already in the mode from my “Ask me anything” stint!


What’s the most played song on your iPod? (or CD collection if you’re old school) 

          I am sadly old school (cheap school?) and have no ipod!  I am stuck listening to a lot of kids music- but other than that, I would say for cds “Dixie Hummingbird” by Captain and Tennille!  My mama raised me right!

On Youtube, it is “Someone like You” by Adele


What do you miss most about your childhood?

   How carefree it was!  Not a worry in the world!  Especially how all my meals were provided.  I wish I could have appreciated that more!


What is your favorite poem?

  Ugh.  I am such an uncultured swine!  I can’t think of a single one! I don’t read poetry, I am ashamed to admit!


Without thinking too much, what are 5 of your favorite books of all time? (Just list them as they come to you … don’t think!!!!!)

How Green Was My Valley, Babycatcher, Still Missing, The Help, My Name is Mary Sutter.


What was the last book you read? Tell me about it in 5 words or less.

The last book I read was one I won from Jenner's giveaway! It was called Confessions of a Tiger Mom.  Chinese parenting controlling educational real.


Can you define irony and give an example? (This is self-serving as I’m struggling to do this with my son. I will so steal your answers if appropriate.)

Oh man.  I have no idea the correct definition-  I use it when something goes the opposite way that I wanted it to happen.  Like if I have been trying to find the sour cream all day to put on my tacos for dinner, and only find it the next morning after the tacos are in the trash and I am looking for the missing BUTTER or something.  But, that could be incorrect.


If you were forced to change your name, what would you change it to?

I have often wished that I go by Kate (Cait?).  Such a pretty, cute name!  I would name my daughter that (short for Kathryn) if it wasn’t the first half of my name!  Only one person I can think of (hi Suzy!) has ever called me Cait with any regularity.


What author/TV show/movie/book/celebrity, do you have absolutely despise and avoid at all costs?

I have never actually seen anything with the Kardashians in it, but I am repelled by them on principle.  What is there purpose?  Here on Earth and in the media?  Why do I have to see them and their fake eyelashes EVERYWHERE?!


What movie was actually better than the book is was based on?

So rarely does this happen!  I would have to say that I actually like ‘Water for Elephants” the movie better than the book!  And I did actually like to book too!


Beatles or the Stones?

Beatles, but…barely.  Would you still be my friend if I told you that I didn’t really listen to either one?  I am a product of my childhood and am more of a Journey/Chicago/Neil Diamond/Billy Joel kind of gal!


What is your favorite quote?

Biblically:  “Do not fear, for I am with you.  Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you, surely I will help you.” Isaiah 41:10

Other: “Contentment is destroyed by Comparison” I don’t know who said it but it is a quote my mom has up on her fridge.

I read Water for Elephants but have yet to see the movie. Glad to hear the movie was good! (even if it has a sparkling vampire in it)

Your definition of irony was spot on I thought!! And I love your quotes. And yeah … you're much much much too young for the Beatles/Stones question. You skew young for a blogger! : )

Hope all is well in your new life.

i really need to see The Help!! i've heard it's amazing from so many people. have a wonderful weekend, cait! :)

T Rex Mom said...

Check out some ee cummings for some quick fun poetry. Even T Rex enjoys listening to me recite. Don't forget Dr. Seuss, too! I bet you've read some from him, too!

septembermom said...

Great irony definition and I liked your quotes. Good answers. Hope all is well. Are you enjoying the warmer weather??

lisa said...

Hey CAIT! i think that's how i think of you in my head, more than caitLIN... I'll start sticking to that when I say your name out loud!

also, your second 'favorite quote' struck a very solemn and sweet chord with me... look forward to talking more with you when I come home for the summer!!!!
