Bethan's Questions
1. Favorite dessert?
Why do you torture me so!?! ;) Hmm... probably,
 *thinks of every dessert I've ever eaten*
Uhh... lava brownies!
FYI: The brownie batter is put in a muffin pan type thing, and then you put a Hershey kiss in the middle of each one. After you bake it, it's like a chocolaty piece of heaven! So good!

2. Having your picture taken or taking the picture?
Taking the pictures! I do like having my picture taken but post the time I'm the one holding the camera.

3. What do you love most about blogging?
The people! Our blogger community is so wonderful! Everyone is so encouraging and friendly. I consider most of them my dear friends. :)

4. Do you have a nickname?
Not many people know this if they're a blogger but.. I guess I'll tell you that...
Eve is my nickname...
My real name is very similar, but people call me Eve as well so I just went by that on my blog.

5. Do you consider yourself graceful?
Haha! Graceful my aunty! (If you watched Road to Avonlea you would understand the "aunty" part)
I've gotten more graceful as I've grown but people don't consider me graceful because I'm sorta clumsy.

6. If you could go out with a fictional character, who would it be and why?
Well, if I was of age to get married I would choose Gus Pike from Road to Avonlea. He was so nice, caring, faithful, and funny.

7. If you could take seven fictional characters out for dinner, who would they be and in what order would you seat them?
Hmmm... Let's see. I would invite Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables, August from The Secret Life of Bees, Merlin from Merlin, The tenth Doctor and the eleventh from Doctor Who,  and Sherlock Holmes from Sherlock. In that order too. :)

8. Are you left handed or right handed?
I'm a lefty!

9. Favorite Disney princess?

10. What usually cheers you up?
Kind words, and sweets. :)

11. What is a weird dream you had?
Oh my, I'm about to share one of my many strange dreams with you. Be prepared.

This is very interesting so you might want to read this!
  Okay, so I was at this church camp and it was sorta dark all the time there. I was just sitting on my bed in a cabin type dorm thing and I hear screaming. I was so shocked. This red headed guy who was my best friend in the dream told me that everyone was supposed to go to the main area of the camp. So we ran there and it was like a giant while building, like something you would see in DC.
  Everyone was in there and a person yelled, "Everyone keep calm. There are gummy people on the loose! It's because they had Obama care. Don't let them catch you or you'll turn into one too!" So, what do people do when gummy people are on the loos? Obviously they run frantically in every direction. So there I am running about, and I see all these colorful gummy people running after everyone else. They looked like gummy bears but shaped like a person. I know, weird! Suddenly a thought came to mind. "All they need is love." I said to myself and I ran up to one of them and gave them a hug. Do you know what happened? The gummy person turned into a real one. So then everyone started hugging the gummy people and we were all real again!
 The End.

12. How do you usually wear your hair?

Ponytails in the summer, also braids. When it's cooler I wear it down with a headband or something.

13. How often do you read?
Whenever I have the time! :)

Emily's Questions

-Which fictional character are you most like? (be honest!)
I'm stuck on this one. Hmmm.. maybe Elinor from Sense and Sensibility.

-What made you want to start blogging?
I was inspired by other blogs to start blogging. I looked like so much fun so I had to try it out!

-Where does your blog name come from?
I named my blog "Eve of Womanhood" because I'm still young and am striving to become the woman God wants me to be. :)

-What is your least favorite subject at school?

-Favorite name for a girl? For a boy?
Girl: Amelia or Elnora
Boy: Rory or Atticus 

-Where would you like to live when you grow up?
It would be cool to live somewhere in Europe but I feel like the country and state I'm in now is where I was meant to be. :)

-If you could live in any fictional universe, which one would it be?
Probably Doctor Who's or Pride and Prejudice's.

Jollygirl's Writing Contest Entry
{my photo}

As I walk along the deserted road,
the rain slowly sprinkles down.
It's the beginning of a great show.
The cold wet drops refresh the humidity that fills the air.
Everything is
so dreary and beautiful,
yet so dramatic,
when it rains.
The sky sheds it's tears,
drip by drip.
The rain's music steadily plays
 as it hits the pavement and
and jumps as it splashes.
The rain's song grows louder as if it is the big finale,
the wind slowly blows the rain,
as it dances,
but with such control.
and I just stand there,
watching the rain's performance.
Hoping there is an encore.

At the end of your poem you said that you are hoping that there is an encore of the rain's performance and I'm wanting an encore of this poem you wrote.
