Tag, You're It!

My bff, Robyn Campbell, tagged me. I just hope she was wearing her shades when she did. The three amigos must always wear their shades.

Do you think you're hot?

That would be a definite no, unless I just walked 3 miles
trying to earn activity points for weight watchers.

Upload a picture or wall paper you are using at the moment.

It's baseball season, so ya know it HAD to be baseball!!

The Song(s) you listened to recently?

I love to listen to K-Love, a Christian radio station. If I'm listening to music, that's what it is.

What were you thinking as you were doing this?

Well, I'm watching baseball right now (I love TiVo), and I'm wondering when my baseball team is going to remember they are PROFESSIONAL ball players and not little leaguers! Grrrr.

Do you have nicknames? 

When I was in high school, friends called me Muffy (don't ask). Now I'm "Mrs. O."

Tag eight Blogger friends.

1. Shannon "#1" Messenger
2. Theresa Milstein
3. Heather McCorkle
4. Jana Warnell
5. Jemi Fraser
6. Old Kitty
7. Stephanie Thornton
8. Natalie Aguirre 

Who's listed as number one?

The #1 Shannon, of course! That is always her spot.  :-)

Say something about number 5.

Jemi and I are sisters in teaching. I love how often I recommend a book and she says her students love it or that she has that book in her classroom library. She is ALWAYS encouraging a love of reading in her classroom. Gotta love that! Plus, I just love her.

How did you get to know number 3?

Heather is one of the awesome friends I've made through blogging. We've followed each other for a couple of years now. I love her Muse Mondays and her Twitter Tuesdays and her Creature Feature Fridays. Plus . . . she has a book coming soon!

How about number 4?

Jana is one of the world's coolest librarians--my son ADORES her! She works at the middle school in my town, goes to my church, run my oldest son's youth group, and keeps me hungry for cool ARCs. She is a great friend to me in real life, the kind of woman EVERYONE loves.

Leave a message for number 6.

Kitty, you are awesome! THANK YOU for always visiting my blog and leaving behind a smile for me. And I think Charlie is so handsome!

Leave a lovey-dovey message for number 2.

Theresa, you are a bloggy friend I always remember in my nightly prayers. I hope you find the teaching job of your dreams! I think you should move to Kalispell so my kids can be in your class, because you are a WONDERFUL teacher!

Do number 7 and number 8 have any similarities?

They are both brilliant women. Seriously, both of these women are genius material! Stephanie has a history mind that rivals my encyclopedia, and Natalie is uber-wise about the publishing world. 

Well, I hope you enjoyed this little game of tag. For the record, yes, I was wearing my shades!

Natalie Aguirre said...

Thanks so much for tagging me and saying such nice things about me. It made my day (and it's going to be a crazy one).

I so agree with your other tags. I follow most of their blogs.

Julie Dao said...

I'm a baseball fan as well! I can't watch any other sport (unless it's hockey, and it HAS to be in person and not on TV). Great picks - I love all of those bloggers!

Nicole Zoltack said...

I'm a Yankees fan, courtesy of hubby. Although I still root for the Philles (we live about an hour om there and all o the rest o my teams are rom the city).

Heather said...

LOL! I feel like I should be running! This is too much fun! So I'm totally asking about Muffy... Oddly, it ryhms with my nickname. ;)

Laura Marcella said...

I'm going to a Phillies game next week when we play the Oakland A's!

I'm unfamiliar with a couple of the blogs you tagged so I'm going to check 'em out!

Shari said...

Loved learning more about you, Shannon!

Patti said...

I love that your so into baseball. It makes me feel my obsession with basketball is okay.

Myne Whitman said...

Another lovely one. Your wall paper is cute, I'm not a big sports fan though I follow some basketball and soccer.

Corey Schwartz said...

Ha, love your answer to the first question!

Mary Aalgaard said...

These are fun. Great answers!

Jemi Fraser said...

Muffy??? :)

Thanks for the sweet words - you're a doll! And we must have a bazillion books in common in our classrooms! :)

Shannon Whitney Messenger said...

Aw, thanks for thinking of me #2. :)

And I'm sorry, I HAVE to ask: Muffy????? Pretty sure you're not allowed to throw things like that out there and not give the story.

Stephanie Thornton said...

This was a really fun post--I learned more about you and I get to follow a few new blogs. Yay!

Thanks for the tag--now I know what my next post will be which is super helpful as I'm up to my eyeballs in editing!

Theresa Milstein said...

Ha! I love your answer to the hot question.

Your lovey-dovey message was too sweet. And I could use that today because *swallow* I'm returning to the school because it's 8th-grade graduation. I swore I wouldn't take anymore job there. It's been a mistake to be there everyday instead of getting exposure in the district. But the teacher who was denied tenure called out AGAIN so I'm going to fill her class for the half day, get paid for the full day, and get to go to graduation. I promised the students I'd be there.

Liz @ Cleverly Inked said...

That's such a fun post! Glad you're eyes were protected. :)

Karen Lange said...

I knew it! I knew you'd be wearing your shades! :)
