Survey Says

Thank you, thank you, thank you for playing along with my survey last week. I loved reading your answers. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to read all of them because the survey host only allows me to read the first 100 answers for free. If I want to read the rest, I have to pay to upgrade my account and I don't really want to do that. So...I'm just going to go with what I have.

Pretend for a minute that I'm Richard Dawson, host of the popular 70s/80s game show Family Feud. Pretend that I'm him when I say: And the survey says....

1. What is your least favorite household chore?
Bathrooms - 38%
Mopping - 24.5%
Unloading the dishwasher - 15.3%
Dusting - 12.2%
Other - 10.2% (laundry, vacuuming, tidying up, loading the dishwasher, sorting papers, all of the above, ironing, windows, putting laundry away).

2. What's the best movie you've seen lately?
17% of you don't watch movies.

The other 83% of you mentioned some good ones. Here are the ones that were mentioned the most often.
Ramona and Beezus
Toy Story 3
The Blind Side
Book of Eli
Eat, Pray, Love
Temple Grandin

That last movie? Temple Grandin. Put it in your Blockbuster/Netflix queue if you haven't seen it. John and I watched it last week and it is excellent. You can click here for a synopsis. 

3. What's your favorite form of exercise?
Walking - 53.6%
Exercise? What's exercise? - 14.4%
Hiking - 9.3%
Yoga/Pilates - 8.2%
Running - 8.2%
Aerobics - 7.2%
Other - 8.2% (elliptical, jazzercise, varied cardio, tennis, water aerobics, biking, stepper, kayaking)

4. If you found a $20 bill in your pocket today and you weren't allowed to save it, what would you do with it.
Such great answers. Lots of you would buy books or coffee or treat the family to ice cream. Lots of you would go out to dinner or take a friend to lunch. Some of you would buy something fun--iTunes, candle, new shoes, clothes, craft stuff, or get a mani/pedi. Some of you would give to missions or give to a friend who could use some financial encouragement. And some of you would use it to pay bills or buy groceries.

5. Choose one word to describe yourself.
Tired. Moody. Fun. Friendly. Tenacious. Happy. Joyful. Overwhelmed. Responsible. Christian. Pregnant. Social. Dependable. Wordy. Easy-going. Loner. Crazy. Luscious. Blessed. Busy. Loyal. Passionate. Perfectionist. Scattered. Content. Tall. Funny. Sarcastic. Over-scheduled. Different. Quirky. Creative. Flexible. Over-scheduled.
So fun to read all your words. If I had more time I'd list them all here. Oh, and whoever described themself as supercalifragilisticexpealidocious cracked me up.

6. Are you a blogger?
Yes - 54.5%
No -  36.4%
I want to be! - 9.1%

7. Tell me three things that you love.
God. Jesus. Family. Books. Coffee. Chocolate. Fall. Knitting. Football. Snow. Church. Cooking. Peace. Games. Movies. Diet Mountain Dew. Being at home. Sex. (That was my husband's answer. I was sitting beside him when he took my survey. He listed it three times because he has a knack for subtle.) Creating.  (Funny that answer followed sex, eh?) My dogs. Being at home. Food. Free time. Grandchildren. Gardening. Tortillas. Christmas. Reading. Scrapbooking. Outdoors. Decorating. Coke. Wine. My job. Photography. Road trips. Cheesecake. Sushi. Sonic. Shopping. Hoodies. Sunsets. Flip flops. My pillow. Mountains. And so many more wonderful things!

8. Do you know me in real life?
Yes - 30%
No - 70%
Lots of you said you feel like you know me and that makes me smile.

I enjoyed reading everyone's answers so much that I want to try this again soon! Thanks again for playing along!

I, too, loved reading the responses. Immedidately added Temple Grandin and another similar title to my Netflix list.

Fascinating. Especially glad for the movie titles, as we just signed up for a 3-mo gift sub to Netflix and only had three movies in our queue!
