Guest Blogger: Shannon

It is my pleasure to announce our latest guest blogger! The wonderful and funny Shannon from Shanimal's Crackers!

She is stinkin' fun and ever since I found her blog, I've been in love with whatever she writes!

So, first read her post here and go and check out her adorable blog!

1. Tell us about you and your blog. 

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 of 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

All things good: Disneyland, Grandma.

-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 underground*)

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.

Thank you, Katie, for asking me to be a guest blogger. I had fun answering these questions, and hopefully you’ve come to known a little bit more about me. I just hope what you know now doesn’t scare you away. 

And thank YOU Shannon for such a wonderful, funny post! You're awesome! 

Remember to go and check out her blog!

Thanks again! When I first read the question "What makes you a nerd?" I was thinking to myself: I have no way to answer that. I don't THINK I'm a nerd. Then as I started writing, all my true colors showed. And you know what? I'm proud to say that I AM a nerd.

Good responses. I'm liking these Guest Bloggers and the similar questions we've answered. It's interesting to read. And that Mario joke is just classic! said...

This is a fun interview. I love that short, sheepish, shy, shining Shannon.

When I read, "I say hecka" my immediate thought was this girl's from Utah, then I read the next response! Made me laugh!

I thought she meant Mario from the games!

Do you have posts ready for the rest of the week and set to post automatically?!

Lauren said...

I agree, Shannon is wonderful and funny. but I already knew that.

PS why isn't knew pronounced like canoe? said...

Aww, you guys are all so nice! Thanks!

I originally started saying "hecka" in Cali, but only recently have I begun to use it again. I need to represent NorCal here in Utah...but I guess Utahns say that word too? I don't know. I've never heard it used here before.
