The A of Q & A...Part I

I've gotten several great questions...so here we go!

1.  How will you manage not being connected, in some way, to the internet, for a week?  From Slidecutter 

Great question.  This is going to extremely hard and I'm not positive I'm going to be able to do it.  I think it will happen by default.  Like going on vacation for a week and being disconnected.  Maybe if/when we go to Disney?

2.  What's the story behind Poekitten? The name, that is.  From The Annoyed Army Wife

When I was 16 I adopted a kitty named Rosie.  We started calling her Rosie Posie and eventually that got shortened to Poe.  We just added kitten to it and she's been Poekitten for over 10 years now.  I was in need of a name for my AOL account so I stole her name and I haven't gotten rid of it yet.  Yup, I've used Poekitten as my online name since high school.

3.  What is your favorite place to travel to for culture?  From The Coupon Queen

  This is a great question.  It's a hard one!  I LOVE Thailand.  The weather is perfect, the people are friendly and it's westernized thought you can still find Thai culture.  The biggest problem with Thailand is the sex trade...if that wasn't there it would be perfect!

Angkor Wat
There is one place that I would recommend for culture over Thailand.  That would be Siem Reap, Cambodia, home of Angkor Wat.  What is Angkor Wat you ask?  It's a temple complex built in the early 12th century.  There are Hindu temples to various gods as well as Buddhist temples.  It's amazing.  I visited in January/February 2003.  It was AMAZING.  You can climb all over the temples and explore them to your hearts content. 

4.  What's the thing you miss most about New England? (and if you say the snow, I might cry). ;)  From Stacie

Nope, it's not snow.  I don't really like snow.  I don't mind it when I can be nice and warm inside with cup of tea, a book, a quilt and some puppy & kitty company.  I don't like it when I have to go outside and deal with it.  I do miss the foliage in the fall.  I love the colors of the changing leaves and the crisp fall air.  It's so refreshing!

5.  If you could be an Biblical character OT or NT who would it be and why? From Gail (aka Mom)

After thinking about this, I think I would choose David.  He's considered a man after God's own heart.  Even with his mistakes, he still get high praise in the Bible.  When he sinned and was called out on it, it repented and sought God.  While I don't want to make David's mistakes (but haven't I made my own, that are just as bad?)  I do want to have his heart of repentance.

I have more answers coming to a few more questions.  If you have any questions, let me know and I'll answer them in my next Q&A post.


  1. Great Q and A...I was wondering where the name Poekitten came from so I am glad someone asked that question :)

    Fall is one of my favorite times of year too!

  2. So fun to read your answers!

    Why did you start blogging / what's your favorite thing about blogging?

  3. I had to laugh (more like cringe) to myself when I read your response to my question. The last time I went down to Florida for a visit with my oldest daughter, I foolishly thought I could get away from all things involving the internet, or other connectivity, mostly from work.

    Boy was I mistaken.

    While sitting on the beautiful Siesta Key beach, my Nextel kept beeping; on the other end, my spouse... asking me "where this or that was" in my work office. If that wasn't bad enough, he beeped back asking me to send a Fax! Hellllooo? Like what part of "I'm on vacation, at the beach, with no Fax machine in my beach bag" didn't he get?

    I wish you better luck than I had....lolol
