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 🙂 

 

Lynda-Carter-American-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

  1. Great to know more about you again today Nonnie!

  2. John Howell says:

    Love the questions and the answers. Good job. Thanks, Harmony for hosting Nonnie today.

  3. This is going to be a very fun tour, Harmz – this Q & A is giving everyone clearer insights about our very own Wonder Woman, Nonnie Jules! Well done! Thanks for hosting Nonnie, Harmz!

  4. Tough questions get tough answers Harmony. What do you expect from Nonnie? That she makes excuses? I am happy that you hit her with these questions, so now we know how much tougher she can be. 🙂 Thank you for hosting her and for showing courage with your questions.

    • Harmony Kent says:

      Thanks, Joy. I have to say that Nonnie came up with these tough questions herself, so I can’t take credit. It is, however, great fun to host her today and have you all visit 🙂

  5. Gordon Bickerstaff says:

    Well, I’m left wondering how you managed to get one of your daughters to be tidy. I’ve got two daughters, and they have many wonderful qualities but tidy isn’t one of them. When ours were young, tidy and homework were mutually exclusive – if you wanted one you couldn’t have the other.

    • Harmony Kent says:

      So it isn’t just teenage boys, then?! 🙂 thanks for stopping by, Gordon! 🙂

    • Hi Gordon – after raising two ultra-messy sons and one very tidy daughter, I’m thinking the answer is nature not nurture. Both my wife and I are neat and tidy people – so we are mystified about where our boys came from! LOL

    • Nonnie Jules says:

      Gordon, as a parent, you have this weapon called “a veiled threat.” Well, in my world, all threats are clear and out in the open. I COMMAND a tidy and beautiful home, and even the one that I’m casting to that island, falls in line without my “threat.” (I think at that point, she has seen the look on my face. Thanks for dropping by!

  6. Rhani D'Chae says:

    Another great post! Nonnie, this tour is giving us some great insights into how you tick, and I’m loving it so far. Harmony, thanks for hosting today. You are always so ready to open your door for club members on tour.

  7. Beem Weeks says:

    Day two and the fun is just beginning! One daughter who’s tidy and the other who’s not. Hmm. You got lucky there, Nonnie. Both of my kids, when they were little, were more than happy to sit and take pride in the messes they created.

    Thanks for hosting, Harmz!

    • Harmony Kent says:

      Thanks for dropping by, Beem. When I was little, I was once found hiding in a kitchen cupboard wearing a bowl of blancmange! lol … promise I was tidy most of the time, though! 🙂

  8. Jan Hawke says:

    Definitely not arrogant is our Nonnie – lol! 🙂 She’s much more as the French would put it – FORMIDABLE… in other words – fantastic or tremendous! 😉

    Thanks for hosting a formidable Q&A Harmz 😀

  9. It takes a brave person to ask a woman her age…good for you! A Chinese doctor I used to go to would always ask, “How young are you?” I love that positive approach and use it now myself.
    It is great to keep learning more about Nonnie. Great interview, Harmony.

  10. Micki Peluso says:

    Thanks for having Nonnie on your site, Harmony. It’s always an adventure just hearing new things about her. Whoever said the word for Nonnie is formidable nailed it. But mixed with humor and honesty makes her ‘almost’ perfect. I enjoyed the visit. Never tell
    Nonnie she has several grammatical errors in her interview!! 🙂

  11. This is a blast! So great learning more about you, Nonnie!

    Harmony, you’re a terrific host! 🙂

  12. Nonnie Jules says:

    Hello to all you wonderful people who have stopped by to support me today, YOU ALL ARE “GIVING ME LIFE” as my teenager says, so, thank you, thank you and thank you so many times more!

    I am suffering with a horrible wisdom-toothache (for the past couple of days) and the pain is unbearable, so forgive me if I can’t respond to each individual comment here. I’ve been stuck in bed for the past two days, unable to eat and sleep…and at this time, it looks as if I won’t be able to get an appointment until Thursday.

    In spite of that, please know that I love and appreciate you all and am so glad you’re being entertained (at my expense…LOL).

    Jan, formidable…I think I resemble that remark…now that’s a label you can attach to me! I LOVE IT!

    Harmz, one of the greatest hosts ever! Thank you!

    Have a great day you guys. See you tomorrow (if this toothache allows)

    • Harmony Kent says:

      Awww, Nonnie … be better soon, honey. It’s such a pleasure to host you and have all these awesome folks come over 🙂

  13. Perfection? You set a high standard, Nonnie Jules! And we thank you for it! I love this concept for your tour! Thanks for hosting, Harmony!

  14. Awesome to get more of the inside scoop about our Wonder Woman, our faithful and fearless leader! Thanks for being you, Nonnie.:)

  15. I love hearing the answers to these questions. Nonnie is a force of nature! It’s great to know you have a big support network of your own with your family Nonnie. Great blog post Harmony!

  16. ~Mar says:

    Another great stop on your tour, Non!! Looking forward to the next!! 🙂 Harmz, thanks so much for hosting Nonnie today!

  17. My husband is the neat one in our house. Our son and I drive him nuts! Also, tooth pain is the worst. Feel better soon, Nonnie!

  18. I’m enjoying getting to know more about the awesome Nonnie Jules! Great tour! Thank for hosting, Harmony.

  19. Gwen Plano says:

    Wow…this is fun! My four children were messy little ones, in fact I think they relished chaos. I have to say that as adults, they enjoy a sense of order. So….time helps.

    I love reading about our fearless leader! Thank you Harmony for hosting Nonnie. Formidable is a good word, a strong word – for someone who tirelessly gives her all. Thank you Nonnie!

    • Harmony Kent says:

      Hey, Gwen, great to see you! I’ll never forget the day my 5 yr old niece ran through the house yelling, ‘Save me from chaos!’ … turns out that was the name of the evil teddy bear chasing her in his diabolical space craft (erm, big brother’s arms) lol … formidable chaos does it for me 🙂

  20. Sherilyn says:

    Sorry to hear about that wisdom tooth, Nonnie! They are never fun. As for the confidence/arrogance comment, I agree completely! People confuse the two frequently. We can feel confident about our abilities and knowledge without having to look down our noses at others. Nice to get to know you better Nonnie!

    And Harmony, I left some home-made chocolates on the table for you to hand out, but since it is so late, maybe you and I should eat them all! Nonnie probably shouldn’t with her tooth problem…

  21. Harmony Kent says:

    Oooh, chockies … you can come again! Great to have you over, Sherylin 🙂 For sure we have to protect our fearless leader and snaffle them all …

  22. Kim Cox says:

    Interesting post. I’m one of those people who don’t notice something out of place unless I need it or it drops on my head. That’s when it bugs me. My husband of course is the opposite, he notices everything.I tend to walk around in my own little world, daydreaming or plotting another book.

    Have fun on your tour. Thanks Harmony and Nonnie! Can’t wait to read more.

  23. I’m coming to you from my smartphone. Nonnie I love your disclaimer and I love how you answer questions. Very good. Harmony you you got your work cut out for you. Lol Now back to my technical problems.

  24. Lovely interview Harmony and Nonnie. It’s fun to get to know the brains (and inspiration) behind RRBC! Thank you both.

  25. Wendy Scott says:

    Hi Harmony & Nonnie,
    Just catch up on your blog post.
    Love the age comment – I always answer “old enough to do what I want and young enough to still do it!”

    Cheers

  26. Nonnie…You Go Girl!!!

  27. I must disagree, respectfully, about the best husband there ever was. I do believe I am married to him myself!

    I’m enjoying following the tour and getting to know you.

    • Harmony Kent says:

      Thanks for stopping by, Patricia! Sounds like we have a “mine’s better than yours” competition going lol 🙂

    • Nonnie Jules says:

      Patricia, I sure hope you and I aren’t married to the same man! Does your hubby travel six months out of the year? LOL
