Beth from Writing it Out tagged me for a meme. :) Check out her blog this week. She's posting tons of notes from a SCBWI conference. Good stuff. 

1. People tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

4. What is your favorite scent? Vanilla

5. If you had a million dollars you could only spend on yourself, what would you do with it? Buy a gorgeous beach house in Stone Harbor. :)  

6. Share some recent good news. I just landed an amazing agent! ;) 

7. Do you trust easily? Yes, but I'm getting more suspicious as I age. 

8. Do you generally think before you act or act before you think? Usually I act before I think.

9. Is there anything that has made you unhappy these days? When people I love are ill or suffering.

10. Do you have a good body image?  Sometimes. 

11. What is your favorite fruit? Apples

16. What is your favorite item of clothing? Long sleeve tees and a good pair of jeans.

17. Do you think Rice Krispies are yummy? As long as they're in the treat form. 

18. What would you do if you saw $100 on the ground? Look around, then pick it up. 

19. What items could you not go without during the day? My laptop. 

20. What should you be doing right now? Writing :)

I tag the everyone at Amoeba Made of Awesome, Teri Brown, and anyone else who wants to participate. And if you don't feel like tackling the whole thing, pick your favorite question and answer it. I love reading MeMe's. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Wow, that'a a long meme. Can I come visit you at your beach house? I'd love one. Just a little cottage would do. On some beach that's not crowded.

keri mikulski :) said...

Hi, Kacey! Sure!! ;) Yes, definitely a secluded beach.

PJ Hoover said...

I'm so all about the vanilla scent also! Love that!

Marianne Arkins said...

Bucky? Boo Boo? Should I ask why?

And that song stuck in your head question? Seriously evil, because anyone who reads it will share that annoyance with you.

I may give this a go this weekend...

keri mikulski :) said...

Hi, PJ! Sometimes I love opening the jar of vanilla extract and just sniffing it. :) Yum.

Hi, Marianne! I know... Imagine running down the court in high school and your dad is yelling, "Way to go, Bucky!" My dad nicknamed me Bucky after Bucky Dent from the Yankees. And Boo Boo is another nickname from my dad because I was always hanging out with him. We were like Yogi Bear and Boo Boo. :) Defintely post! I look forward to reading it. :)

Tabitha said...

LOVE that picture!! :)

Great answers, and I'm all about vanilla scent too. Especially when it's baking in something yummy. :)

keri mikulski :) said...

Hi, Tabitha! Yummy. I saw the pic this morning and had to post it. :)

Beth said...

haha, bucky is my dad's nick-name. something about "bucky bucky 2 by 4, can't fit through the kitchen door." i think he was a fat kid w/ buck-teeth... n i was boo-boo till i yelled @ my ma to stop...

Kaitlyn said...

Do i have to do it twice? Gah. You tagged both my blogs

keri mikulski :) said...

Hi, Beth! That's weird. :) I guess Boo Boo and Bucky are pretty common nicknames. :)

Hi, Kaitlyn! Definitely.. :)

Meredith said...

I am also addicted to One Tree Hill. I LOVE that show!!

I won the iTunes gift certificate from you at Linda Gerber's release party. Is there any information you need from me? And did you find any songs that you liked?


keri mikulski :) said...

Hi, Meredith!! Yay!! Another One Tree Hill fan. I love it!! :) Feel free to email me anytime to chat about OTH. I'm obsessed. :) I'm actually on ITUNES right now. And I think I found one song I love on my own by Band of Horses, so I'm in the process of updating my IPOD. And yes, please email me your address at and I'll send the GC out right away. Have a great weekend and congrats!! :)

Barrie said...

Vanilla is my favorite scent too. and I couldn't live without my laptop. I think I'd better check out Paris' site!

Angela said...

Congrats on getting an agent!

PJ Hoover said...

How did I so miss your agent news?
That is fantastic! Congratulations!
Who is it?

Kelly Parra said...

Fun meme, Keri!

keri mikulski :) said...

Thanks, Kelly! ;)

K. M. Walton said...

Hi Keri,
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Gettin TAGGED is fun - it forces you to think about things you haven't thought about in such a long time. I had fun filling in my TAG responses - memories of the shore, Michael Jackson's Thriller were dredged from the depths.

Thanks for sharing.

keri mikulski :) said...

Hi, KM! Me too. I loved being tagged.

Carrie Harris said...

Yep. That song is stuck in my head now. I suppose it could be worse. I'm going to try to replace it with "We Go Together" from Grease. :)

beth said...

Thanks for posting! I've loved getting to know everyone better...

keri mikulski :) said...

Hi, Carrie! I love "We Go Together!" I wish we held hands and sung that the last day senior year. :)

Hi, Beth! Thanks for the tag. :)
