One of our first followers, Holly Michael of Writing Straight has tagged us in a human blogging game that looks like a squirrel version of fun chase. The rules are thus:
You must post the rules
Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post
Create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged (or use the existing ones)
Tag eleven people with a link to your post
Let them know they’ve been tagged
Here are my given questions and answers, that perhaps will give you a bit more insight into my squirrelly life.
1/ If you could change your name, what would you change it to and why? Nutmeg Squirrel is a pretty good name for a squirrel, but some days I’d like to be Meggie, because it’s shorter.
2/ Name 3 things you couldn’t live without (not people or animals): It’s the same for every living being: air, water and food, right? If not, I pick acorns, hickory nuts and beechnuts.
3/ Which do you prefer – beach or forest? Why? The forest, for obvious squirrel reasons.
4/ Do you have a ‘I need to do this by the time I am ……‘ age? Which one is it? Squirrels don’t think like that. But by winter, I need to have hidden many acorns.
5/ Laptop or desktop? Laptop. It fits my living arrangements much better.
6/ Are you still friends with your best friend from childhood? No, but I’ve found a new best friend in Hickory.
7/ If you could critique any book, which one would it be? Why? Acorns and Eat ‘Em by Suellen Ocean. It’s a cookbook packed with recipes I’d like to try out. It’s free, go see it and make a treat for your friends! http://www.californiaoaks.org/ExtAssets/acorns_and_eatem.pdf
8/ Describe your perfect day? I emerge from my nest to find a pile of acorns and beechnuts spread across my favorite eating stump. I run and scamper with my friends on a day that’s not too hot or not too cold, snack and rest when I need to and fall into my leaf nest for a good night’s sleep.
9/ Where in the world do you feel most at home? My new neighbor hood is suiting me quite well, thank you.
10/ Do you talk with your hands (ie do you gesture wildly when you talk?) No, but if you want to count tails, that would be a yes.
11/ How well do you know the history of your country of birth? Thanks to Miz Flora I’m learning about the natural history, which is more important to squirrels than human history.
Now for the second part of the game, tagging others. Please use the questions above or make up your own. Enjoy tagging!
