Share Your World – Week 10

Thanks to my friend, Cee, and her lovely blog, I’m playing her Share Your World questions for this week. I hope you join in the fun, and play along. Share your world with us.

  2. Are you a collector of anything?
  3. If you HAD to change your name, what would you change it to?

My answers:

  1. Can you change a car tire?  I can, but haven’t had to for about twenty years or so.  I’m sure it’s like ridin’ a bicycle.  😉
  2. Are you a collector of anything?  I used to collect angels and have about 20-30 angel pins that I wear on occasion.  I used to collect rocks and still do, a little, but not like Hallie and Mama do.  Now, I’m more of a collector of photographs.  You can freeze a piece of history.  You can store a memory forever in a photo, if you take proper care of it.  I LOVE photographs.  Oh, and Pocket Dragons.  These are some of ’em above (mine and Hallie’s).
  3. If you HAD to change your name, what would you change it to?  I did actually change my last name to Blake when I finally severed all connections with my biological father and that side of the family.  When Hallie marries, I will drop the Sessums and go back to Blake.  If I HAD to change my first name, I suppose it would be Katherine, and I’d go by Kate.  I’ve always wanted a nickname.  Or Claudia.  It just rolls off the tongue like a song.  A great artist’s/writer’s name would be Claudia Blake.  Hmmm.  Maybe a good pseudonym?  I’ve loved the name Claudia ever since the days of Farscape and Stargate SG-1, when Claudia Black graced the television screen with her talent, beauty and that awesome accent.
  4. What am I wearing right now?  Blue jeans, a pink tank with a long-sleeved steel blue button-up soft and COZY shirt, and my New Balance sneakers.    
  5. If you could be a tree or plant, what would you be?  Tough one.  I would have to say a Palm Tree.  They may bend during the angriest of storms, but they usually regain their strength, stand their ground, and grow tall and proud again.  They are also very fruitful, producing food and drink, and useful in other products, although I’d prefer not to be used as a doormat.  😉

  1. LOL, I see you took my advice and listed the ?’s today. 😉 Such fun!
    1.) Yes, but I prefer to bat my eyes, and pray a gentleman shows up to rescue the fair maiden in distress. Those lug nuts ain’t easy, you know.
    2.) Yes, little miniature houses . . . which are in storage right now.
    3.) Yvonne. Simply because I love the name
    4.) Blue Jeans (with spandex 🙂 ), a turtle neck, and a sweat shirt. Typical wardrobe for me.
    5.) I think I’d be a mighty oak tree. They seem to be so wise and strong.

  2. Cool! So you like the name Claudia. I like it, too. 🙂 Those pocket dragons are cute; I’ve never heard of those.
    Hey, congrats on your ABC Award from Francine. I got one, too. I was going to nominate you, but I noticed you were already on Francine’s list.

    1. Indeed, Claudia is a lovely name. 😉 I don’t know if I ever knew about pocket dragons until we had gone into this Dragon Museum in Chattanooga, TN. They had tons of pocket dragons and we just fell in love with them. Thanks. I’m working on the post for the ABC Award. Cool, right? Congrats on your being awarded, as well. You deserve it. Love your blog. You’re so sweet for the nice gesture. *hug*
