Little Known Facts About Georgie Penn


One of the things I love about blogging is the different people you "meet." I found Mrs. Kraft's blog through one of my all time favorite blogs to read. (life is to short not to) wear red shoes. Seriously, this girl makes my day every time I see she's posted. You should check out both blogs, 'cuase they are both awesome.

Imagine the day I find this new blog, she is hosting a blog party. A blog party I can participate in! Always lots of fun.

What celebrity/celebrities would create a "Star-Struck" feeling if you saw them in real life?
The truth is, there are several. The first ones that come to mind are all the guys from Celtic Thunder. One of my very few celebrity fandoms.

Another one would be Steven Spielberg.

Call me a nerd, but there you have it.

What is your comfort food/drink?
To tell you the truth, I don't really have one. Food has never really been something I've turned to when I need comfort. I guess if I had to choose one though, it would be ice cream
. I love ice cream.

Be brave - tell us something very random about yourself.
Ever since reading Sherlock Holmes, The Sign of Four, I don't like to have the blinds on my window up after dark. Every time I glance up and see it I see an ugly fact plastering itself against the glass. Yes. This is the affect Sherlock Holmes has on me. Yes, I still read Sherlock Holmes and enjoy it to the utmost.

Do you have a strong desire to do something you've never done? What is it?
Where should I start? I have a huge bucket list people. A small sample for your enjoyment...
  • Visit Australia
  • Learn to play the saxophone
  • Direct a play if not a movie
  • Take a ride (or three) in a hot air balloon

Movies: Action, Drama, Romantic Comedy, Documentary, Comedy? What are your favorite
I enjoy almost any genera of movies setting aside horror and westerns (although there are one, or two westerns I like). My favorites would have to be thrillers and comedies. I humorous thriller makes my day.

Books: Fiction, Non-Fiction, Romance, Biographies, True Stories, Self-Help, Devotional/Study? What are your favorite types of reading material?
Ah! Books! Books! My kingdom for some books! (You can ignore that if you wish, kiddos if you know what I'm talking about) Once again, I love almost any kind of book. My favorites in fiction are fantasy, thrillers, and historical fiction. I also love reading non-fiction on writing and film. True stories are always neat too!

Music: Funk, Rock, Country, Jazz, Classical, Film Score, Blues, Classic Rock, Crooner, Alternative, Heavy Metal, Techno? What are your favorite types?
For the longest time I was a country girl and only a country girl (Don't take this the wrong way. I can't stand Taylor Swift's music). In the last year however I've began to branch out. I still love country, but Celtic Thunder, Josh Groban, and Owl City have shown me a new kind of music and I do have to say, I'm in love. I also enjoy film scores, oldies, and folk.

If you could live anywhere at all (and take all your loved ones with you), where would you go?
Oregon. I love Oregon. My second choice would be the village they call the Moy in Ireland. Just so I could say, "I live in the village they call the Moy."... and because I love Ireland

What is one of your favorite things to catch a whiff of?
Leather. Journals, saddles, boots, they all send me into ecstasy.

What are your favorite animals?
Once upon a time I wouldn't have had to answer this. You would be able to tell as soon as you saw my blog. Alas, even though I love the animal just has much, writing has taken over in my blogging life. To answer the question, "The wind of heaven is that which blows between a
horse's ears." -Arabian Proverb

What movie or book character can you most relate to?
This will sound strange, but I believe the answer to this question
would be Edmund Pevensie. Yes, the boy who turns on his siblings for want of attention and power. Honestly though, while others were talking about how terrible he was for doing it, I was telling myself I probably would have done the same thing. Not because I don't like my family, or feel I need power, but because I'm human. I fall. I make mistakes. The great thing about Edmund is he learned his lesson and in the books to come he is stronger then ever because of it. A character to admire for realizing his wrong's and letting "Aslan" change his life for the better. I can easily imagine how he felt as the White Witch offered him everything he thought he wanted, and how he felt when he realized what a mistake he had made.


  1. Mmmmmm, leather! I love the scent of leather, too... It's so earthy and warm and rich! And I understand the Edmund thing- he's very human and fallible, and I can relate to that very much.

    Awesome post!

  2. Yay! A fellow hot air balloon wisher. :) Thriller books--YES. Have you read any Sigmund Brouwer? His books are amazing, and he has some awesome thrillers. Yep, Oregon is awesome. :) And hooray for smelling leather! I love the sound of creaking leather, too. :)

  3. what a fun post....;loved getting to know you

  4. Let's go hot air ballooning in Ireland someday. <3

  5. Loved your answers! I'm visiting from Lynette's blog.

  6. Oh yes, Kylie's blog totally rocks my socks. ;-)

    Hot air ballooning! Would you be jealous if I told you there is a place about an hour away from me that does hot air balloon rides? [for a crazy amount of money, sadly. :-P]

    Aww, thanks. Yes, I suppose Noah is my strength and weakness. Funny how that works. <3

    Love and blessings,

  7. I've put a link to your blog on my "awesome blogs" page!

  8. Yeah, I don't really like that movie either. In fact, I dislike it pretty strongly. I was just trying to have a good attitude about it. You should read my original review of it.

    I love Edmund too! He is my favorite character in all of Narnia.

  9. What a sweet blog. :) I'm so glad you decided to join in the blog party. It's been fun!

    I've heard Oregon is beautiful. I'd love to see it.

    I think a hot air balloon ride might be fun too. It would definitely be weird.

    Well, better run. Have fun blog hoppin'! Hope you're meeting some new friends.
    Lynnette :)

  10. There are like 6 CT guys, so even though it's one of your few fandoms, they kind of each quality as a fandom in and of itself. Especially if we're talking about Keith here. xD

    Great post, dahling. :)

  11. Hehe...I got the "my kingdom for some books" joke. :P

    Ohh my goodness!! Josh Groban = uh-MAZ-ing! I know people who have never heard of him before and it makes me feel sorry for them. His voice is incredible and his music always makes my day.

    Hmmm yes, Edmund is a character that I think we can all relate to. And yeah, what makes it so awesome is that he changes and becomes a better person despite everything. Gotta love Narnia. :)

    God bless,

  12. Oregon is indeed a beautiful state. I, in fact, used to live there. :)

  13. Hello! :D I found your blog and I definitely enjoy reading it! Keeping on writing!! Blessings!!
