Hello and welcome to my blog today. It gives me great pleasure to host author Nonnie Jules on her ‘100 things we all wonder about Nonnie Jules’ blog tour! Nonnie has come up with an awesome Q & A for today’s tour stop! Read on to get the low down on the gal who goes by the moniker of Wonder Woman 🙂
Q: Are you married, if so, for how long and are you happily married?
A: Yes, I’m married to the best husband there ever was! He’s the perfect father, the most perfect husband and the greatest friend to EVERYBODY. He is almost saintly (as well you’d have to be, to be married to me). We have been married a very, very, very long time and yet, it feels that I’ve not had him long enough. Am I happily married? YES!!!! (I can’t speak for him, though…remember, he IS married to me).
Q: May we ask your age?
A: Yes, you may ask -____________________-
Q: What is your biggest pet peeve about people in general?
A: WOW, Harmz! You can just look at me and tell that I have some, right? LOL. OK, pinky-truth: My biggest pet peeve is that people choose to live dirty and messy when they don’t have to. Mind you, I have two of these people in my home (my hubby and my oldest daughter). They can walk around mess and not even see it, whereas my teenager and I, actually start to break out in hives when we see so much as a water stain on the counter! That’s my biggest pet peeve. Now, you didn’t ask for all of them, so I’m going to mind my manners (unlike some of those folks who are being interviewed on my shelf at RRBC) and simply list that one. But, know that I have many!!!!
Q: You seem to be an extreme perfectionist. What’s that about?
A: I have no idea what that’s about, but I can tell you that I think that I am extreme when it comes to things being perfect. People say that nothing is perfect, I say boo ha! NOT TRUE. And, I think that we use that as an excuse to not try hard enough, to not push ourselves, and sometimes, to be just plain old lazy. There are perfect cakes! There are perfect cars! There are perfect animals. There are perfect shoes, houses, noses, etc. So, for those who like to say that nothing is perfect, why don’t you apply that label just to humans and all things that have a beating heart. NOW, there is where we find major imperfections!
Honestly, I just like things in order. The Governing Board members at RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB will tell you that if something leaves our offices with so much as one misplaced letter, I almost spit nails! My husband says to my daughters: “Look at Mommy. She never walks out that door without being absolutely sure that everything is in place and perfect.” And, it’s true. If there really is no such thing as PERFECT, then I see no harm in striving to get as close to it as humanly possible! Again, I think that’s a crutch for those who don’t care to soar as high as others.
Q: There are some who might think that you come across as arrogant. How do you respond to that?
A: Harmz, anytime you have an over-abundance of confidence, OR just confidence of any kind, you are tagged as arrogant. There are lots of things that I choose to not do to appease and please others, just so that they’re happy within themselves, and again, dummying myself down, is definitely one of them. I said in my last interview at John F.’s that I know who I am, I know what I am, and I know whose I am, so people can apply any label to me that they’d like. In response to the question, how do I respond to that, well, I don’t. #SomethingsYouJustIgnore
