Life's Hardest Questions Answered

How would you respond to this question: Would you rather fight two hundred two year olds or two hundred chihuahuas?

Hard question, right? Well, this is only one of eight questions I had to answer.

If you would like to view my shrewd sheepi
sh shining answers to some difficult questions, then you should head on over to the lovely Simply Kate's blog. You'll be in for a treat. Literally. Sometimes she has pictures of really yummy-in-my-tummy-looking food on her blog. Well, maybe not literally. Her blog isn't a brownie. But her blog sure is sweet! Figuratively. I haven't licked my monitor, so I don't know what her blog literally tastes like. But go over there anyways, you won't be disappointed--she's fun, cute, and...sweet (it's okay, I can honestly say that--I just licked my screen. But it actually tastes more dusty than anything).

Update: I've decided to post my interview on my blog, too.

1. Tell us about you and your blog. (Not really a question, but go with it)

I’m Shannon and I’m short, shy, and sharp. Please take note that all of these adjectives start with “sh,” and in conjunction, are supposed to help you remember my shrewd sheepish shining name. If these techniques fail your memory, then maybe my blog’s name, Shanimal’s Crackers, will be easier to remember. That name is a bit more creative and only played a tad on words.

Oh, man. Like, really, I don’t know how to describe my blog. But I will tell you the definition of my name. Shannon means “short and wise.” I’m not even making that up. And I will say this fact to anyone I come in contact with because it makes me feel Shpecial.
Back to the non-question at hand, I guess my blog could be considered a “humor” blog, but don’t quote me on that. Yeah, pretend those quotation marks aren’t even in the previous sentence—I’m too lazy to delete them.

2. What is your favorite book?

You know what series I find absolutely hilarious? Don’t laugh—or, go ahead and laugh…just not at me—but I recently read all the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and those books are pure entertainment. Just my type.

Oh, do I come off sounding unintelligent? Let’s rectify that (dang, I knew I set the bar too high by describing myself as “sharp.” Next time I’ll use the word “shabby.”). I also really like serious books, too: One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and The Help.

3. What makes you a nerd?

Well, if loving Diary of a Wimpy Kid doesn’t, then I don’t know what does. Okaaaaaay, fine, I have a list:

-I like lists
-I mainly listen to 90’s music
-I love cats
-I like Michael Jackson jokes
-I like pun jokes
-I am a punctuation/spelling activist
-I am currently listening to “Carol o f the Bells, by John Williams, from the Home Alone soundtrack
-I collect board games
-I just downloaded Disneyland’s “Main Street’s Electrical Light Parade” song because it reminds me of the electrical light parade, which makes me happy. I liked all the shiny lights…and Disneyland
-I say “hecka”
-I currently reside in Utah. (Joke. Not the part about me living here, but the part about it making me a nerd. I only said that living in Utah makes me a nerd because I know you, Katie, are from here…you can stop laughing at this hilarious joke now…)
-I hang out with my grandma…and enjoy it
-I can’t believe I forgot this, but …I love Mario! (Not to be confused with the singer, I’m talking about the Mario who’s the star of this joke: What kind of pants does Mario wear? Denim, denim, denim *say it to the tune of the music from when Mario’s underg round*)

4. You have three hours to live. What do you do?


5. Describe the perfect sandwich!

Sharp cheddar cheese and mustard. No joke. I remember being in, like, third grade and my mom had made me a cheese sandwich (mustard is ALWAYS involved, sometimes with chips wedged between the cheese and bread—preferably salt and vinegar…or Fritos…or Doritos…or…Cheetos…or cheddar and sour cream…or…). I was minding my own business, going about taking a bite out of my sandwich, when a classmate asked, “Did your mom forget to melt the cheese?” I was too embarrassed to tell the truth. Well, now I’m not afraid to say it to the entire Internet world: No, the cheese wasn’t ever meant to be melted.

This reminds me: I was at some relatives’ a few years ago. One of my cousins was, like, “I’m hungry. I’m going to have a snack.” Then I saw this:

Melted Cheese on a Plate
Weird. There’s not even mustard (or chips…or bread) to accompany it.

6. What would be your ideal job?

I have no idea. One that I love, where the cash flows in, while I do the minimal amount of work. Let me know if you’ve heard of it.

7. What is the most important thing in your life?

Probably my family.

8. Would you rather fight two hundred two year olds or two hundred chihuahuas?

Either way, it’s not a fair fight. I’d surely win.


  1. So, I read a hideous review on MSN about Rodrick Rules (you should know the movie) - she gave it ZERO stars out of five (which I didn't think was possible). Anyway, so I saw the movie last night with my 7-y-o (who idolizes The Wimpy Kid), and you know what? I laughed my bum off. I get so irritated with adults who have no senses of humor. (nice write-up on kate's blog btw)

  2. I have worked with two-year-olds for many years. In fact, I worked in a classroom of 18 two-year-olds up until I was 9 1/2 months pregnant, and let me just say...I would take the chihuahuas ANY day!!! Lol

    Thanks for all the info you left on my last post. I wanted to send you an email but when I clicked on "email" in your Contact Me page, the program it automatically opened up decided that it did not like my computer and would not work. Just like everything else in my life! Figures! But after reading your comment, I noticed that the last update I had in my reading list from you was from 3 weeks ago. After that I got nothing, so I clicked on the "follow" button on your page again and hopefully that will fix the problem.

    So do you think it was worth it for you to change the URL? Your blog looks just as fabulous as it did before and you seem to still get quite a bit of traffic. Not to mention, your followers must be very loyal because you don't lack in that department either! :-) I know that I love your blog and will keep coming back no matter where you move! Thanks for your help. Means a lot to me! :-)


  3. Thanks so much for guest blogging on my blog! You're amazing! I'm so glad you did!

  4. lol i'll rather fight the babies.. dogs scare me :p
    i love her blog too!

  5. I would much rather the chihuahuas. 2 year olds are far more devious.

  6. Okay, Diary of a Wimpy Kid?? Seriously, funniest. book. ever! I was reading it out loud to my 8 year old and kept having to stop because I was laughing. Especially the part about Shel Silverstein. I always thought that for a children's book, his editor should have INSISTED that he pick out a less frightening -- no, less horrifying -- picture of himself for the back cover. I myself have held that thing up in front of my face and chased many a children around the house with it. Seriously scary photo. So yea, Diary of a Wimpy Kid has my vote, too.

  7. I choose the two-year-olds b/c their teeth arent as sharp and they cant jump as high. I think.

  8. Nice interview- give me the two year old any day. I'm wondering though who the parents are who want to deal with their rascals along with 199 of their friends. :)



Thank you for reading and have yourself a great day. Or night. Whatever.
