All About Eva (nyuk nyuk)

As I said in my last post, I'm going to start posting about some of my followers and best commenters.  First off is Eva.  If you have read my comments for the past several months you will have noticed that there is nobody who is a more faithful commenter than Eva!   Eva writes a blog called Wrestling with Retirment and she is getting pretty darn close to having 500 followers!   Alright Eva!  She lives in Maine but I've never talked to her so I don't know if she has a crazy accent.

I asked Eva some (lame) questions and she wrote back to me with her answers.  

Me:  Okay Eva, Today is all about you!  First of all, describe your blog in ONE WORD.  

Eva: Warped.

Me:  Alright, what is your Least favorite color?  I said LEAST favorite, not FAVORITE.  See what I'm doing?  I'm being edgy.  (Barbara Walters can suck it)

Eva: looks terrible on me.  

Me:  I don't like brown either, but it looks nice on me so that's kind of worse, don't you think?  If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be and why would you change it?

Eva:   I'd be scared to do that, because who knows what else it might change......Well, When I left teaching I withdrew my retirement funds and started my own business....Classy Lady:  a ladies boutique with sizes 14 and up.   It was 1991 and not the best time in the economy; I didn't have enough start up money to stay afloat and ended going bankrupt.  Lost my house, two cars, etc.   Had to start all over from scratch.  I guess if I'd invested those funds instead of starting a business, today my house would be paid for, I'd have the money to travel wherever I want, and wouldn't have to worry about paying my bills.  (But who knows if that really would have happened?)

Me:  It was pretty gutsy of you to try!  I'm sorry it didn't work out for you.  Okay, next question:  What are your 5 favorite blogs: 

        I actually follow about 150 blogs,  and there are more that I adore.   These were just the first that came to mind.   Mental Poo is very R-rated and not  for the faint of heart, but he totally cracks me up.   I follow him on Twitter and we're friends on facebook.  I can't get enough of his humor!

Me:  Wow, Eva.  You are really a social-media butterfly!  I can't get in to Twitter.  Last question:  What is the dumbest thing you have ever spent money on?  

Eva:  An elliptical was expensive, huge, and after a couple of weeks I lost interest in it.   But most of the time I tend to be pretty frugal....almost tight.   (Although I do love to eat you know from my Sunday's in My Neck of the Woods!

Me:  Thanks Eva!  Everyone go check out her blog and her favorite blogs.  Next week Jane from Jane's Junk and Treasures.  (I haven't asked her yet, but if she says no I'll just make some stuff up.  NO, I did not just make the Eva interview up.  Honest!  You can ask her!)


  1. I forgot to mention "Pearl, you little"....another of my favorites.
    And I'm not much of a twitterer...I go there and try to make sense of it. I pimp my blog and my gift shop, and that's about it. And I do try to comment on the blogs I read, even if it's just a few words, to let the blogger know I've been there. I know I like knowing that people have read my posts, so I feel I should treat other bloggers accordingly! Thanks for the interview....I feel honored to be the first!

  2. Sarah, thanks for the entertaining post and for linking to my blog via Eva's answer. Eva's great, love her blog too. I just signed up to be your newest follower and I look forward to checking in often to read your posts. From what little I've seen, they're very well written. There must be something in the water in MN, lots of bloggers I've come across are from there now or originally. Keep up the great blogging!

  3. Eva is great! I found her through New England Bloggers, another blogger living right here in Maine! I can assure you Eva has no accent. In fact none of us Maine-ahs have accents. That's just a wicked bad myth.

    Thank you Sarah for linking to my pitiful blog with 97 followers and under 100 visits per day...unless I post something containing the word "boobs", then I get about 150 visits.

  4. Eva is completely awesome, and I'm beyond honored that she singled (okay, group-of-fived) me out for attention here.

    I love her right back.

  5. Lazarus, thank you so much for becoming the 60th follower! I like a nice even number and the 59 was starting to bug me. Not that I don't appreciate all the people who choose to hit the follow button, but the latest one is always my favorite.

    Deb, your blog is not pitiful. But boobs really does get a lot of hits doesn't it? Try "Gigantic Vagina." That really brings in the perverts! I'm thinking about titling every post "vagina, boobs, threesie." That will drive traffic up like CRAZY.

  6. 61! Success.

    Remember I have followed you since before it was cool. In fact, I read every single post you ever wrote, probably even before you wrote it.

    Signed, Jealous.

  7. God. Eva wants me so bad she's not even trying to hide it any more.

    Plus, I've met Eva and I'm pretty sure I could take her husband in a fight if he ever tried to come between our lovin'.

    I forget where I was going with this.

  8. OK Eva is too funny!
    I didn't know she had a blog!!
    Just became a follower and added her to my blog list!

    Oh and I just sent you an email.....bring it!


I would love your comments.
