Sister’s Q&A, Part 4

Sister's Q&A (800x800)

Wow, it has been quite a while since I posted an episode of the Sister’s Q&A! Remember that? It’s like a normal Q&A, but Megan and I have to answer you guys’ questions for each other instead of for ourselves. It’s a lot of fun to write, and I hope it’s fun to read too!


Christian Homeschooler:

What kind of pencils do you like to use best: regular number 2’s, or mechanical?

Guess: Well we don’t have many mechanical pencils, so number 2’s.

Answer: I would say regular pencils since that’s pretty much all I use, but mechanical pencils are okay too. Except I hate it when the pencil lead is too short and it disappears when you press down – argh! XD

Which do you like better: dogs or cats?

Guess: Cats.

Answer: Cats. I like dogs, but they’re not nearly as clean or cuddly as cats. 😉

When you want to look up a word’s definition, do you use a real dictionary, or do you look up the word on the computer?

Guess: Hmm… I don’t know what Allison would do. Maybe look it up on the computer. 😉

Answer: Hmm… I don’t know. I do both. It depends on where I am and what I have close by I guess. But maybe computer?

Do you use your WordPress Reader?

Guess: Yep!

Answer: Sure do! I try to read every post. (I only follow about 30 blogs, in case you were wondering. It would be really hard to read every post if I followed hundreds of blogs!)

Which would you prefer: swimming in a pool or playing in the snow?

Guess: Probably swimming.

Answer: Swimming! Snow is so much fun, but it’s also cold and kind of messy. Plus when it’s swimming time it’s also summer vacation!



What’s one thing you really want right now?

Guess: Hmm. I… don’t know! Maybe she’d like a lifetime supply of polymer clay?

Answer: I’m not sure… Um, more time so I can publish this post and play piano before I have to go to bed? XD

Least favorite meal?

Guess: Almost got it…. Some Mexican dish but I don’t remember what! Some sort of enchiladas?

Answer: Something with mushroom soup in it or most Mexican food (or any spicy food). XD Or maybe cabbage rolls with super spicy Spanish rice and grape soda. YUCK! No one would ever combine those things for a meal anyway, but oh well. Bleh. XD

What is a sport you’re really terrible at?

Guess:   I don’t know, she doesn’t play sports often. So I’ll just go with hockey even though she’s never played it. I really have no clue. XD

Answer: Heh heh, I’m not too great at any sport (except I’m okay at Ping Pong if that counts XD ), but then again I don’t know that I’m horrible at a certain one. I’m not very good at tennis or badminton or something like that? I have no idea. XD

What’s something funny that happened to you recently?

Guess: Too hard. I pass. I really have no clue though.

Answer: Hmm. Ahh, why is this so hard? Okay, for lack of a better answer, I’m going to go with the time my siblings and I were discussing Keeper of the Lost Cities together, and Megan and Logan and I were discussing whether the cliffhanger at the end of Lodestar was huge or not that big. But my brother Jeff, who hasn’t finished the series yet, HATES spoilers, (even though we giving anything away at all), so he kept yelling, “Argh! Stop! Guys, don’t tell me ANYTHING!” And stuff like that. XD He was very adamant. 😛

If someone gave you a baby tiger, would you want to keep it?

Guess: Hmm, probably not.

Answer: Maybe. I might want to keep it for a little while until it got big, and then maybe take it to a zoo or something. But even assuming I would want to, I’m sure I wouldn’t actually keep it. 😉



What’s it like being a blogger AND your sister being a blogger?

Guess: Annoying at times.

Answer: Mostly fun because we can talk about our blogger friends and the posts we read and stuff together, but also annoying because sometimes we both want to post the same thing at the same time. 😛



What is your favorite season?

Guess: I think Allison’s would be spring.

Answer: Spring! Although I looove fall too, and summer is nice. XD Winter is nice in some ways, but it’s my least favorite of the seasons.

What is your favorite Bible verse?

Guess: I don’t know. Maybe a verse in Psalms? 😛

Answer: One of my favorites is Zephaniah 3:17:

The Lord your God is in your midst,
    a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
    he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.

I mostly like that one because there’s a really pretty song/hymn about it. It’s like this:

What are three things your sister almost always has with her?

Guess:   ??

Answer: My phone, my watch, and a bunch of ideas and plans running through my head. 😀



What is your dream career?

Guess: Running an Etsy shop, but she’d probably like to be a photographer too.

Answer: To have my own little craft shop where I can sell all the zillions of things my hands keep churning out from working on my zillions of hobbies. ♥ I also think it would be great to publish one of the games I made sometime.



Which one of you is older?

Guess: Allison

Answer: Ooh, that’s a hard one. XD Just kidding – I’m the oldest! I’m actually the oldest of the kids in our family.

Favorite food?

Guess: Most any fruit.

Answer: FRUIT! CHOCOLATE! CHEESE! And also pistachios and clam chowder and crab legs and spinach and bread and… I like most things, actually. (Besides mushrooms and Spanish rice and cabbage rolls and grape soda. XD )

Favorite pet?

Guess: I can’t decide between Willow and Casey. I’ll just go with Casey I guess.

Answer: I ♥ my fuzzy bunnies Willow and Lily so much, but honestly I play with the cats more, so I guess maybe Casey.

Name 3 things you don’t like that start with the letter E.

Guess: Oh. Umm… Eggs (gathering them), Elephants stomping on her (I’m guessing she wouldn’t like that at least), and early awakenings? 😛

Answer: Eggs (gathering them), electric shocks, and erasers that are old and leave smudges on your paper? Ha ha, those are basically all the things I could think of that started with “e” anyway. XD


And that’s it! So, drum roll please, who won? It was…. *tallies up the points*

MEEEE!!! I narrowly squeaked past: I got 11 right and Megan got 10 right. 🙂

Sisters Q&A: Part 3

It’s been awhile since the last part of Sisters Q&A – I wonder who will win this time! (You can read my guesses for Megan HERE. 🙂 )



Coffee or Tea?

Guess: Well, she doesn’t really drink either… She likes the smell of coffee, but not the taste. I’d guess… tea.

Answer: I guess tea, but I could definitely learn to like coffee – I just don’t think it’s worth it because then I’d have to buy it to drink every morning. XD


If you had to dye your hair a really bright/crazy color, what color would you choose?

Guess: Umm… Purple?

Answer: Purple, but I don’t think I would ever dye my hair a bright, crazy color. XD

Favorite book?

Guess: The Mysterious Benedict Society!

Answer: The Mysterious Benedict Society! Guys, did you know Trenton Lee Stewart is releasing a new book called The Secret Keepers? O.o

How many pets have you had in your life?

Guess: Five?? Counting fish, that is. 🙂

Answer: Do you mean personal pets or family pets? If you mean personal pets, I think I’ve had three: Honeybunny, Willow, and Lily. I still have Willow and Lily, of course. ♥ Well, I guess I did have fish and crayfish, but…

 Do you like gathering eggs? 😀

Guess: Nope!

Answer: Well duh, who wouldn’t? I wouldn’t, that’s who. XD I don’t like gathering eggs, nope, no way. Although at least we get paid…

How old were you when you learned to swim?

Guess: Six, I think.

Answer: 7? We didn’t use to swim very much except on vacations, but now we go to our neighbor’s pool a lot during summer.

Grace (The Girl Upstairs)

What’s your favorite farm animal?

Guess: That we own? Rabbits, if they count and if not, then cows.

Answer: Do bunnies count? Aw, shucks. Well then, I guess cows/calves because our chickens are rawther boring. 😉

 What’s your least favorite farm chore?

Guess: Gathering eggs. :/ (OH MY GOODNESS! Guys, I even got the emoji right. Do I get a bonus point? XD ~Megan)

Answer: Gathering eggs. :/

 What clay creation is your favorite?

Guess: Probably her purple dragon.

Answer: Ahh, that’s a hard one! Maybe this dragon? I also really like my gnome house (at the end of this post), the custom owl at the beginning of this post, and the custom dog figurines I’ve made for people.

 If you could change your hair and eye color, what would you change it to?

Guess: Maybe blond hair and… blue eyes? Maybe?

Answer: I like my hair color just the way it is, although I might make it all as light as the end of it is. 🙂 If I could change my eye color, I’d change it to violet/indigo, but since that’s not common at all, I’d probably change it to blue.

 What’s your favorite book?

Guess: What she’s going to say. XD (The Mysterious Benedict Society)

Answer: Once again, The Mysterious Benedict Society series!

 Who is your role model?

Guess: Jesus. 😉 I don’t know if she has a human role model…

Answer: Jesus. 🙂


If you could add another pet to your farm, what would it be?

Guess: Hmm. I don’t know what she’d want. Maybe a really cute nice rabbit? XD Or some exotic animal like a fawn (okay, not exotic, but out of the ordinary) or a panda. 😛

Answer: Maybe a cute wittle hedgehog – if it was tame!

Of what color are most of your clothes?

Guess: Light pink and white.

Answer: You know, it’s funny. It seems like every year I accidentally get clothes of mostly one color or style, though it changes from year to year. XD Right now I actually have pretty varied colors, but mainly blue, white, and pink, and of those: pink.

Do you expect to go to college? For what?

Guess: I don’t think so…

Answer: Right now I’m thinking I might just take a few classes (maybe Business and/or Art), but I doubt I’ll do the whole thing because it’s just so expensive, especially if you end up not using the things you learned! That’s why I might pick just a few specific classes that I think I will use later in life.

Do you write in a diary?

Guess: Nope.

Answer: Nope, unless my blog counts!

Do you like swimming laps or playing a game in the pool more?

Guess: Probably playing a game, but she also likes floating on our huge inner tube! 😛

Answer: Probably playing a game because swimming laps gets tiring after a while. 🙂

Do you have a tendency to leave things around the house or yard or room or wherever they don’t belong?

Guess: No, not really.

Answer: Not really, although I don’t clean up every single thing I get out right away. But generally I’m pretty tidy. 😀

When you go to sleep at night, do you try your very best to keep the bed all neat and nice?

Guess: Not necessarily, no.

Answer: Well I don’t really try one way or another, but yeah, I suppose so. I don’t like having to remake the entire bed.


And the winner is… BOTH OF US! We tied!

I hope you enjoyed this post, dear readers. 😀 Have a wondermous day!


Sisters Q&A: Part 2

In my last post I did a poll of what post to do next, and you guys chose… Sisters Q&A! So voila! Welcome back to Sisters Q&A part 2.

In case you’re new to this little series, here’s how it works: You guys have asked us questions, and Megan and I are going to answer those questions for the other person. We write our guesses separately, then combine them and see how many we got right. Megan won the first round; let’s see who won this round!

Would you rather have a wardrobe of only neutrals, or only bright colors?

Guess: Bright colors.

Answer: Bright colors. I don’t like black, gray is okay, and I love white, but I wouldn’t want to only wear those colors.


Favorite dessert?

Guess: Coconut cake.

Cooking or baking?

Guess: Baking.

Answer: Baking, definitely.


Small, cozy house or large, regal mansion?

Guess: Small, cozy house.

Answer: It depends on how small and how large, but probably the small house. For one thing, it would take forever to clean a mansion. XD It just depends on what the houses where like, though.



What picture are you most proud of taking (if you have one)?

Guess: One of the silhouette photos she took of our friends and us on the barn roof.

Answer: I’m really proud of the ones I entered in the fair. Click here to see this year’s fair pictures, and here to see last year’s fair pictures. My favorite ones of all of those are the silhouettes, the snowflake, and the eye. I also really like this one:

Answer: I honestly don’t know. It was fun when we went fishing that one time…


What is your favorite brand of car?

Guess: She doesn’t really have one, I don’t think. If she had to choose, I think she’d choose Chevy. (But maybe Toyota…)

Guess: Yep.

Answer: Sure!


Do you browse Amazon/eBay/some other selling website to find things you might like to buy in the future?

Guess: Not often, but maybe occasionally.

Answer: I don’t really browse it for fun, but I do like to look on Amazon when I want to buy a specific thing.


I hope you had as much fun reading that as we had writing it! Wasn’t it hilarious how some of our answers where almost identical? (Well, in a few instances we changed our answer because we saw the other person’s guess after the fact, and agreed with them.)

So… are you ready to see the points? Megan got 15/19 right! She won this round by one point. 😡 XD
