5 Questions, 5 Answers - Getting to Know you Day


Hey everybody, it's audience participation day in BougieLand. Since we've grown as a community, it's time for some getting to know you. Yes you, even you in Lurkerville. Join us won't you?

1. Where do you live?
2. If you're on Twitter, what's your profile name?
3. What brought you to BnB?
4. Who (besides me of course) is your fave commenter?
5. Are you going on vacation this summer? Where? (Yes, staycations count)
6. (Bonus Question) Married, dating, single, don't wanna talk about it, it's complicated?
 You know all of mine but here we go anyway:

1. I live in Dallas and BougieLand (and apparently in my own head, long story - let's move on)
2. Find me on Twitter @OneChele and @MGrantAuthor
3. I was brought to BnB by the innervisions of my fertile mind.
4. My fave commenter? Tough one. BrendaKay gives good comment, as does ASmith.
5. Yes to the vacay! Maybe Jamaica, definitely Napa and definitely Florida.
6. I'm dating.

By the way, we have a Twitter List of Bougienistas and those that inspire BnB. Check it out here. If you're not on it and want to be, let me know. Now it's your turn. Answer all or none, be vague or specific. This is just chatter, good people. Do share...

3. I came to Bougieland to elevate my blog reading enjoyment. It's nice to be able to enjoy a blog that does not devolve into N-word this, or garden tool that. Great discussions, relevant topics, and sometimes a way to spend a slow work day. I loves it (yes I said loves!)

4. I enjoy Riley, GAM, CaliGirl, Gamma, pretty much many of the regulars. It is a hoot up in here!

5. We are taking short hops here and there, meeting family, enjoying long weekends. Saving my vacay time for my wedding!

SingLikeSassy said...

1. WASHINGTON, D.C. -- not the DMV urreah but IN the actual District of Columbia. I bought before the boom and held on. Native of N.C.
2. My handle is SingLikeSassy because I wanna sing like Sarah "Sassy" Vaughan3. TiffanyNHouston brought me to the party
4. Riley. He knows how to use few words to great effect. That said, I love everyone who contributes. This is a smart, crazy and fun bunch of people.
5. I recently decided to go to a 40th birthday camping trip in Montreal for my old roommate. O_O I have some short trips planned through August, but I spent a lot of money renovating my house earlier this year so I will be landlocked until I can stack more paper.6. I am amicably separated and dating casually. V. v. casually.

ASmith said...

1. Nashville, TN2. @ASmith86 <--- aka the party that don't stop. #toomuch?3. One of Chele's first blogs got cross-posted at another blog I frequented at the time.  I think I read that post at LEAST 4 times in one sitting.  Couldn't believe someone wrote my life out like that. :)  And here I am, 2 years later, trying to understand where 2 years went.4. TiffanyNHouston, hands down.  Every comment = poignant and hilarious.  That being said, BougieLand is generally full of epic commenters which I'm sure is why I don't know where 2 yrs went.5. YES! Tomorrow begins a week and a half long vacay that I'm in desperate need of.  First up is family time in middle of nowhere AL (Eutaw, AL <--- yes, that's a real place) and then a few days at my mama's house in hiding and then a long weekend at Myrtle Beach. ::jig::6. Let's see, single in real life, and married in my head.  I have a list of men I know who I intend to marry at some point in my life.  They all know they're on it, they all think I'm joking.  Poor men.

5. I went to LA as a college grad gift to myself, so that's all I'm getting until next summer after I get a good ol' j.o.b.
6. I'm single, and not really wanting to date at the moment.

See what happens when you are a professional lurker? You don't know how to add pictures to your profile.  Sorry BougieLand, I was not trying to advertise.

1. Providence, RI

2. @md_KG

3. I think it might have been AverageBro's blog. Don't remember. I just know I got here, got hooked and never left. I also dragged @hmseli along with me and she unwittingly dragged a few others along.

4. Lawd, I gotta pick a fave commenter?? That's hella hard! I'll go with RozB, Reads4Pleasure, ASmith86, CaliGirlED, Jubilance, GrownAzzMan, LeonX. The GA boys are funny too especially on the Twittuh...lol.

5. I'm on vacation right now in the DMV area. Hopefully I'll make it to the UK (& other parts of Europe) in the fall.

6. Single.

p.s. May I be added onto the Bougienista list too? :)

1. Where do you live? I live in our nation's capital, Washington, DC


2. If you're on Twitter, what's your profile name? @BecomingAMW 3. What brought you to BnB? Carolyn Edgar introduced me to BnB, and I've been enormously grateful ever since!


4. Who (besides me of course) is your fave commenter? Wow, this is a huge challenge for me.  I'm quite fond of comments from RozB and Jayme, but all of the BnB Gentlemen help me see so much from a different perspective than I might otherwise, and Riley always cracks me up.


5. Are you going on vacation this summer? Where? (Yes, staycations count) My plan is to hit St. Lucia and St. Maarten, but that's not until September.  This summer is dedicated to helping the kid furnish the house she's sharing with her friends as she enters her junior year.  Lots of road time b/t here and Philly are on the agenda.


6. (Bonus Question) Married, dating, single, don't wanna talk about it, it's complicated? Single.

E Morris said...

WOW I gave my man the same pass for Ms. Scott.

6.  Divorced :( but currently being courted

SingLikeSassy said...

Not unless it's 20 pearls in which case, she's good. LOL!

Songfor17 said...

One of the most memorable blogs ever!!

Angel Blanca said...

This story still manages to give me goosebumps.  I love Amy and Rob!!!!!!

Angel Blanca said...

Oo-oop, Soror!! Glad to meet you!

OneChele said...

You cute tho! ;-)

OneChele said...

I think we're at six successful and one that didn't work out.

DFig said...

 1. Originally from FL....now living in Philly by way of New Orleans and San Antonio (I miss the heat).2. I  tweet undercover...mostly because I rant about my professional life among friends in the same field. :)3. Honestly don't remember how I got over here....I want to say I saw a post on AverageBro? Or maybe a link from someone else's blog. But I do remember losing 3 hours of my life reading posts when I got over here. 4. For a laugh---riley and rozb.  But, Caligirl usually says what I am thinking (and won't say, since I lurk mostly).  5. Not so much.  Maybe Chicago to meet up with my besties for a baby shower. I do have a Fall family reunion in Jamaica, but that is less vacation and more family visiting + stress.6. Married---4 years. He reads too, and laughs...but is a HARDCORE lurker.

Its amazing how excited I am for both of you when I don't even know either of you outside of your comments.

Angel Blanca said...

On an entirely different note, I vote CaliGirlED Ms. Bouge Congeniality; she's been holding it down today in the comments section!

OneChele said...

Added ;-)

Small world

Angel Blanca said...

That's right; give it up for DC proper!! We're not an area, but a district...and we're fabulous!  I was actually born here, which makes me a rather rare breed in these parts.

We should host a BnB meet-up!
