Belated Delurk Day!

Hey guys! I missed the official delurk day, just like I did last year. But as you know, it's a favorite day of mine so I'm going to have my own delurk day... right now!

What does this mean for you? It means, of course, that if you consider yourself a lurker here on my blog, it's the one day of the year where I beg and plead for you to speak up and say hi and let me know you are here! You can do it!

As in year's past, I have a few questions for you to make commenting easier.  I've thrown a couple in that will prove to me if you really ARE a lurker!

Oh, and please, regular nonlurkers are welcome to comment too. In fact, I'll beg and plead for you to participate along with the lurkers, okay? Okay.

Questions:

1. Do you play video games? If so, which ones?
2. Have you been to a rock/music concert? If so, who was your favorite?
3. Twilight fan? Yes or no?
4. Where's the best place you've traveled to?
5. What do you listen to in the car? Music, audio books, radio, nothing? Or other?

Bonus Questions:
6. Who's my favorite author?
7. Who's my favorite singer?

Now, go for it!

  1. 1. Not really, but I will on occasion. I love little games like Bejeweled on my phone tho.
    2. The only concert I have EVER been to was BB King. I loved it. I carry the stub in my wallet still!
    3.Not a Twilight fan, only read the first, didn't see the movies.
    4. Kauai!!!! (Tho Cabo was pretty nice, but the quiet peace of Kauai is appealing to me today.
    5. In town I prefer silence. On road trips we listen to the radio. I my husband is driving and it's baseball season, we listen to baseball.

    1. I've seen Rush and loved them. Oh so very loud though. And Sting, ah man, I missed him when he was here. Next time, right?

    1. No, unless my kids convince me to try a Wii game with them once in a while
    2. Yes a long, long time ago (Celine Dion)
    3. Hmmm... didn't hate them but I'm definitely not fanatical about them (and I really don't like the movies).
    4. Alaska (on a cruise!)
    5. Audiobooks with the kids aren't with me -- when they are it's usually pop music for them.

  4. This is such a good idea. How have I never heard about it? :)

    1. I loved Super Mario when I was little, but it's probably been 15-20 years since I've played anything.
    2. I saw Matchbox 20, Sugar Ray, and some little band no one had heard of called Maroon 5 a long time ago at the E Center. Maroon 5 was the best of the three.
    3. Nope
    4. Bolivia
    5. music/radio. My son loves to sing with the radio.
    6. Marcus Zusak
    7. Josh Groban

    1. The first year I did this (two years ago now) everyone was doing it, but since then, I haven't seen it around, which is why I always forget (I think Jan. 12 is the official day) but I think it's a blast, so yep, thus the post. Fun that you saw Maroon 5 back in the day. I think I would really enjoy one of their concerts.

  5. I'm a lurker...and apparently a stalker given how many times I keep running into you at events lately.

    1. Yes, I do like video games. My favorite is an old one called Champions of Norrath.
    2. I have only been to one concert and that was Alphaville.
    3. No.
    4. Istanbul is my favorite, I think, but London, Florence, and Jerusalem are very, very close.
    5. Not really anything.
    6. Markus Zusak.
    7. Josh Groban.

    1. A stalker! Ha! Funny! Well at least now I'll recognize you, right? I hate it when I act all doofus-y about who people are.

      Istanbul? Wow. I loved London. Need to go back, NEED.

  10. I bet you could answer all these questions for me. ;) Still, I'll answer for fun anyway.
    1 Yes, I'm a little too obsessed with video games. Zelda is my favorite.
    2 Nope. I should rectify this, though.
    3 Um, no, not a fan but I'm getting sick of all the bashing too.
    4 London, hands down!
    5 I listen to my own CDs but sometimes I listen to the radio
    6 I love Markus Zusak, of course but I also like Kate Griffin.
    7 I can't answer this one, there's way too many I like.

  12. 1. Ummm ... pretty much only Bejeweled Blitz. And Tetris. The Wii lightsaber game turned out to be a big bust.
    2. Ummm (Oops. That's the second time I've said that) ... hmmm. Most of them have been country. Went to an Extreme concert once which was cool. Eye-opening but cool. IF ONLY I COULD HAVE GONE TO THE A-HA FAREWELL TOUR. Though they might not really count as rock. More New Wave Pop. Or Bon Jovi.
    3. Once upon a time yes but no more. Succombed to the overexposure and crowded bookshelf and got rid of them.
    4. Either hiking around Tikal in Guatemala or wandering around the Scottish highlands. Tikal for the Star Wars reference and I REALLY wanted Gerard Butler to walk around the corner and protect me from a wild Scottish dog.
    5. Totally and completely depends. All of the above at different times.

    I cheated and looked at the other comments. Should have remembered, though.
