(Always feel free to ask. Rest assured, I always feel free to duck questions I don’t know how to answer. Remember, I was once an Elementary School teacher…)
How did you come up with the title of this blog?
Lack of creativity. I knew that I wanted to write about anything I wanted to at any time on my blog. That’s how I chose the word “random”. The word “musings” sounded more sophisticated than the word “thoughts”. My first name is actually “Helen”.
How did you pick your twitter name?
Well, some people think my name in Helena Trandom. Those people are wrong. Helenatrandom stands for Helen at Random Musings. I left off the word “musings” because one only gets 140 characters per tweet to work with on the twitter, and just that costs 12 letters.
At one time, you did in depth interviews with yourself on your blog. Why has it been such a long time since you’ve done another?
I am hard to get hold of, and when I can get hold of me, I find myself difficult to work with. I behave like a diva, actually, and I find catering to me to be exhausting.
Remember when you did your “Twik or Tweet” posts all through the month of October? Why only one this year?
I only received one comment on my last “Twik or Tweet” post. This person isn’t on twitter, and found the post perplexing. It seemed to me that people have lost interest in “Twik or Tweet”.
Speaking of the Twitter, you don’t seem to be on the twitter as much anymore. Why not?
Well, the good news is, my doctor tweaked my thyroid meds. and I have a lot more energy. The bad news is that I get carried away doing other things now and spend a lot less time on line.
If you could paint a room in your house any color, what color would you choose?
Why don’t you paint a room lilac, then?
As soon as a room needs a paint job, I will.
What is your favorite movie quote?
“Welcome to a new year at Hogwarts! Before we begin our banquet, I would like to say a few words. and here they are: Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak! Thank you!”‘ Albus Dumbledore in his opening speech to Hogwart students in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
Obviously there is more to me than this. What questions do you think I should answer in an FAQ page?
