Multi-Tasking March 10, 2011
Do you multi-task when you read? Do other things like stirring things on the stove, brushing your teeth, watching television, knitting, walking, et cetera?
Or is it just me, and you sit and do nothing but focus on what you’re reading?
(Or, if you do both, why, when, and which do you prefer?)
When I read, it is just me and the book. I like quiet when I read, no TV, no radio, only me and my book. The only time I multi-task, is when I'm waiting in the car for my hubby, I read and do a little people watching in between.
How about you, can you multi-task and read also?
No, Dolly is not a new Tabloid reporter, but this is a feature so that we can all get to know each other better.
This Week's Questions.
1. Author Jessica Park commented this week on Facebook that "Naming characters takes me almost as long as it does to write the book." Which lead me to start thinking about names. Is there a story behind your first name?
My first name is Anna. I always thought I was named after my Great-aunt Annie. However a year or so ago I was telling my oldest sister (she is 14 years older than me) that I figured Mom named me after our Aunt. She surprised me when she said, "Oh No. Mom didn't name you I did." She went on to say, "I told Mom and Daddy that I would like to name you, and they let me." I was truly surprised.
2, Do you think parents today give more thought to the names they give their children than our parents did?
I don't know about the parents today, but I know we thought about what we would name our children. We both had to agree to the name, now that is where it got pretty difficult by the time the fifth one came along.
3. What is the most unusual child's name you have noticed recently?
I have two granddaughters with unusual names, or so they seem so to me. One is Mercedez, I guess that is not such an unusual name, but it took me a long time to learn to spell it. The other granddaughters name is Kaia, which I am still trying to pronounce her name correctly. I also have a granddaughter named Cheyenne.
