Five Questions Link Back Contest

I love getting to know my blogging friends better. So I am reaching out to you with five questions that I hope you will answer on your blog. Post these five questions and your answers on your blog, link back to Under the Sheets-shhh and comment back to me when you’re done. I promise to link to your post.

The Five Questions Are:
1) What topic would you write your book about?
2) What is one of your guilty pleasures?
3) What are some of the things you do to get yourself out of a bad mood?
4) How long do you think it will take to get the U.S. economy back on track?
5) Do you think there is a fine line between creepy and romantic?

Here are the answers to my own questions:

1) Writing a book one day has always been a dream of mine. Growing up, I thought my Father and I would write a book together about our experiences with manic depression. I have always wanted to show that no matter what has happened in your life you can pull through. Today, I believe that I would write more of an inspirational book to spread the message of hope. (Maybe I could negotiate a book signing in Italy).
2) One of my guilty pleasures is reading People magazine and I must admit that I’ve read it for years. I grab People and Time magazine at the airport, just before plane rides. These magazines seem to fill my need for gossip and news. What would I do without those in-depth People magazine interviews? Not to worry I can catch up online. (Please keep this our little secret.)
3) I do a couple of things to help me when I am in a bad mood. I usually reach out to my family and friends and talk about my negative feelings. Sometimes I take a step back, go for a walk/jog or listen to music and write. And other times, I let myself stay a little down that day which helps me appreciate the better days.
4) I have heard and read many conflicting things about how long it will take to get the U.S. economy back on track. At this point I am hoping for things to be better by the end of the year, for my friends to start working again and for stores to stop closing. I believe that we have many years ahead for the economy to go back to the way it once was.
5) I do think there is a fine line between creepy and romantic. For example, when you’re on your second date with someone and he hands you the phone to talk to his family. This could be taken as creepy or romantic.

Now it’s your turn to enter the five questions link back contest and I am looking forward to reading your answers. Go on you can do it…share with me one of your guilty pleasures.
