Short and sweet. Nice answers. :o)

As I've been reading everyone's post this morning, I kept trying to figure out what my least fav word is.

You just said it for me. I do not like that word.

Tony Benson said...

I like your swear word. I think we all have different ways of pronouncing it :-)

Stina Lindenblatt said...

You're the second person to say customer service. It would be a tough job to have, and for so little pay.

Angela Felsted said...

I agree with you on the least favorite word. Too many kids use it to put down other kids, and bullying makes me angry. Thanks for sharing.

Margo Benson said...

Great answers - you're right 'retard' is a horrid word!

Erinn said...

customer service.... yuck. that job would make me hate humanity.

Robyn Campbell said...

I love your answers, bff. They are cool answers, amigo. (You must have had your shades on while doing this post.)

UGH=customer service. Though I'd be nicer than they are.

(((hugs))) and kisses and loves.

Jamie Burch said...

Great answers, Shannon! I agree with you about the customer service and least favorite word.

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

I'm so with you on the word 'retard.' Just typing it felt wrong and degrading. And this is the first time I've seen 'the alarm clock' for #7 -- incredible! I think that's a universally agreed-upon crappy sound!

Daffodil! Love it!

Thanks for playing along!!

Carla said...

I love the sound of my kids laughing too. It's such a happy sound.

Candyland said...

Aw I love what God would say to you!!! You're pretty awesome.

Jennifer Hoffine said...

I said alarm clock too.

Good answer on "retard." "Invalid" (in reference to a person) is a horrible word too. I'm glad we don't use either that much anymore.

Summer Ross said...

librarian might be a neat job. Good answers

Roxane B. Salonen said...

Jules said...

Shari said...

Look at how adorable you are in your pink hair! I loved hearing your responses. I kept saying yep, yep, yep. Most of our answers were the same. I have stuff in common with the amazing Shannon O'Donnell! He he.

Meredith said...

Ugh, alarm clocks. Worst. sound. ever.

Jen Chandler said...

Great answers, Shannon!

Alarm clocks are of the devil, I'm convinced :D (Love your curse word)

Cheers!
Jen

Cold As Heaven said...

The alarm clock, early in the morning, is definitely a terrible sound, in particular for night owls like me >:)

Myne Whitman said...

I'm loving all the entries I've seen so far in the Blogfest. Your first and last answers stand out. So cute...

Ann said...

Yes I know that swear word. Use it quite often myself. The second alarm clock sound I have come across today. Have to agree with that one too. :)

Karen Lange said...

This is great, love this idea. I may try it! This just further proves how cool you are. :)

Michelle Gregory said...

great to get to know you a little better. and i'm so glad there's KLOVE in Montana.

Elaine AM Smith said...

Daffodils, music and laughter are superb choices :)

Bethany Mattingly said...

I'd like to be a librarian too! Ahh, to be surrounded by books and those who love them. YUM!

Kari Marie said...

I HATE waking up with my alarm clock!

J.L. Campbell said...

Mean people get my goat too.
I'm also a crusader, so this is two stops in one.

Holly Ruggiero said...

Daffodil is a great word. I’m not sure if I’m familiar with that curse word.

Shelley Sly said...

You have wonderful answers! I hate the sound of the alarm clock, too. Even though I wake up to a song I like, I don't like it because it means I have to get up. :-P Also, daffodil is pretty awesome. :)

Kristin Rae said...

daffodil!! that would make a cute curse word too. haha.

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Shannon -

Great list!

One sound I dreaded before my roof was fixed: rain.

Blessings,
Susan :)

raisingmarshmallows said...

Hey crusader...looks like we're in the same group! I love the pink hair! Please tell me you teach with pink hair!!! I would of loved to have a teacher with wild hair in high school.

Conda V. Douglas said...

I agree with alarm clock, even though mine is my cell phone!

Raquel Byrnes said...

Wow, librarian or sportscaster? Those are two very different personality types. Introvert and extrovert...hmmm. I love your curse word. =)

Jemi Fraser said...

Love your curse word & I totally agree with your 'hate' job! :)

DL Hammons said...

Your least favorite word makes my ears burn as well!! Nice answers!!

Corinne O'Flynn said...

Nice list... I am with you on your least fave word. My goal is to make that word detestable to my kids as well. I hate it.

Loved your #10. That sounded like God there too.

Corinne

Mary Aalgaard said...

thanks for sharing bits of you. Isn't it amazing how one word can say so much about a person. I like your answer about the God question.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...
