  1. 6 right answers, not bad for a recent acquaintance. :) I'm glad to meet you, A.J.

    1. Not too shabby :-) Thanks for playing!

  2. Hi AJ, great to meet you. You had me doing neck exercises trying to read your answers, lol! I'm so with you about writing, and Princess Bride and Star Wars, I could watch over again, easy! (:

    1. Thanks for the feedback. I flipped it over so that it's easy to read now. I don't want to break any necks. haha. Thanks for popping over to meet me. :-)

  3. Aloha,

    *That* was a great idea :) My favorite was #10... I was hoping - for you - that D would be the right answer :)

    PS. Thanks for the follow and right back at ye :)

    1. Thanks so much for the follow. Yes, I love to travel. Hope to fit more adventures into my future.

  4. Nice to meet you! I, too, love the song Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone... especially Maroon 5's version of it. :D

    1. I haven't heard their version. *Runs off to find on youtube*

  5. Hi, nice to meet you! I'd take the time traveling too. Love the way you put this in a multiple choice.

    1. Thank you! Nice to meet you as well.

  6. Hi AJ.
    The multiple choice was a great way to re-introduce yourself, but since it's my first time meeting you, I was totally lost!
    I also love Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone... and enjoy all types of music too.
    Great to meet you.

    1. Hope it was still fun in a way :-) Thanks for playing along. And nice to meet you too!

  7. Nice to meet you! We have travel in common. This was a fun re-intro, certainly more interesting than mine (linked to my name).

    1. Nice to meet you too! Thanks for playing along. I had fun making it.

  8. Even tho our my answers wouldn't match yours, you still had some great choices from me to choose from. So nice to meet you!

  9. Hi! It's nice to get to know more about you. Very cool about the capoeira!

    1. Thank you! My whole family is addicted to capoeira. :-)

  10. I got all the answers right ecept I thought you were Batman.

    1. Haha! I really am Batman, but I have to try to keep it secret. Dang. I slipped up again. Alfred!

  11. I wouldn't have known most of these answers, but this has served to let me get to know you a lot better, which was the whole purpose I guess! :)

    1. And you got to learn that I am a bit of a goofball. :=) Thanks for stopping by and playing along. Hope to see you again. Tomorrow we are watching pilot episodes for clues on writing.

  12. I scored a 100! Really! Cross-my-heart!! What do I win?? :)

    1. Awesome!! You win, um, a *digs around looking for acceptable prize*, a gigantic round of applause. haha. Thank you so much for popping by and playing along. This has been fun.

  13. That was a clever way to introduce yourself! Nice to meet you!

  14. This comment has been removed by the author.

  15. Love your answer to 13. I would love to time travel too! And hopefully not screw things up. And thanks for participating in the Re-Introduce Myself Blogfest!

    1. Time travel does seem like a never ending job. I'm pretty forgetful; I might not be that good at it. I would be leaving stuff in every decade. Hopefully, if I was ever given this power, I would also get the benefit of being immune to the butterfly effect. Otherwise, it would be disastrous. haha Thanks for stopping by, and for the follow.

  16. Nice to meet you A.J., just followed, thanks for taking part in the hop! Time travel would be great!

    1. Welcome! This was a great blog hop. It was nice meeting so many new faces.

  17. Your answer to number six made me laugh! I guess I'll pull for the 49ers, but only because I could never root for the Ravens.

  18. Hi, A.J.

    Good to meet you.... What a fun way to introduce yourself....

    Time travel is such an awesome thought... I would be there right with you! Imagine the possibilities!

  19. Admiring the hard work you put into your blog and in depth information you offer.

    It's good to come across a blog every once in a
    while that isn't the same unwanted rehashed material.
    Great read! I've bookmarked your site and I'm including your RSS feeds to
    my Google account.
