A Rose Is A Rose

About Rose, James, Our Life & More

Community Network Meme


1. If you could interview anyone on your blog (alive or dead) who would you chose and why?

I would like to interview Jesus just before He started His ministry by turning water into wine. I think I would ask if he was nervous or apprehensive.

2. What do you feel is your strength as a blogger?

I think honesty is my strength. I am not going to share everything about myself, but the things I choose to make public I will be honest about.

3. Can you share a little bit about yourself that you have not already mentioned on your blog?

I wasn’t going to mention this but my husband James was the one who chose the  URL (sybianuser) of A Rose Is A Rose because he had recently purchased the Sybian machine for us.

4. If you were forced to change the name of your blog, what would you change it to? Why?

A Blogger’s Life because well it is mostly about my life with James and the rest of my family.

5. What do you think is the most fulfilling part of being a blogger?

Sharing thoughts and experiences with people I would have NEVER come into contact with before the internet.

6. What would you do with your last day if you found you had only one more day to live?

I would spend it in service to others, then with my family and then in prayer talking to the creator of the universe, whom I am about to meet face to face!

7. You’ve been doing medical research for decades and have finally found a cure. What was it that you found a cure for and why did you choose this particular ailment?

Diabetes is a disease that can cause lots of other problems so I would cure diabetes.

8. What is your most guilty pleasure?

My guilty pleasure is my Sybian machine and the great pleasure I get out of it with or without my husband! But, mostly with him. Maybe I will make a post about it.

9. Answer only one. What is your favorite book, movie or TV show?

All time favorite movie is Ever After. This is Drew’s best performance and a most clever idea for a movie.

10. What do you think is the very best smell in the world? The one smell that can take you back to a time and place of a very vivid memory in your past?

Vanilla and bacon. Not separate but the two smells together. It reminds me of Sunday mornings when I first started cooking for my parents.

* This is my first meme but I found the questions to be more thought provoking than the usual ones I have seen. Good job Tom.

    You are so far the one who might be as close to identical to me.

    I was reading your answers and kept thinking that we have much in common.

  2. Judy Marie Santiago December 14, 2010 at 1:48 am

    Oh, Rose, you are indeed honest! I google-d Sybian, and then I proved your honesty. Haha. 🙂 Kindly visit my answers too, since I posted late! I am the exCOMMUNICADO. 🙂 Thank you!

    • Rose December 14, 2010 at 8:36 am

      Yeah, my husband didn’t think I would go through with it. Thanks for reading my answers. Tom’s a good guy. Maybe we could all take turns creating our own meme. Maybe once a month.

  3. Melanie T December 13, 2010 at 1:20 am

    I too am pretty honest online. I love how I’ve met amazing people all over the globe just because of blogging. I loved that i got into it and met so many amazing bloggers 🙂

    • Rose December 13, 2010 at 7:03 am

      I love your avatar photo. I don’t have many regular visitors but those that do come by are in your words, amazing. I might look up and complete some more memes. I had fun.

  4. Mitch December 12, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    First, I love these answers. Second, I also love that you want to cure diabetes, since I’m diabetic, though I chose to cure cancer. And third, you’re the first person I ever saw actually owning up to having a sybian, and now I’m laughing because Mitchell didn’t know what one was! lol

    • Rose December 13, 2010 at 7:00 am

      Are you related to the other Mitch? I’m a married woman so there is no need to be ashamed of my favorite toy. My husband gave Sybian to me out of love. And because I shared that I had it, now Tom’s wife is going to reap the benefits! I read someone’s answer was to cure greed and the other diseases would somehow find a cure. Thank you very much for coming by my site.

  5. southwindtrails December 12, 2010 at 2:23 pm

    I too love the movie ever after (It’s just so cute!) I loved your answers, they felt so honest. However you now have me thinking about bacon so I think I’m going to go searching in my fridge for somthing yummy to eat!

    • Rose December 13, 2010 at 7:02 am

      I can be honest on my blog because my friends and family for the most part don’t know I blog. I say stuff on here (when I get around to posting) that I might not say in person.

  6. Tom Baker December 12, 2010 at 11:56 am

    Guess what April is getting for an anniversary present! James is the man!! Seriously, I’m going to order it as soon as I’m finished with these meme comments. The videos are amazing and I would love to experience this with her. Breakfast foods are a great smell and coffee too. Off to get my credit card! Great answers Rose. Mitch’s response was great and wait until Cherlyn looks it up!

    • Rose December 12, 2010 at 12:24 pm

      April will love her Sybian. No doubt. James is a very special person. I’ve noticed our IP’s are the same. Do you have Comcast too? Have a great week Tom, this was a good idea.

  7. Cherlyn December 12, 2010 at 8:33 am

    I’m not sure what a Sybian Machine is, but after I look at more posts, I think I’ll wikipedia it haha. Really great answers, very interesting! I love Ever After too, it’s definitely one of the movies I watch when I’m having a chick-flicky type of day :).

  8. Anklebuster December 12, 2010 at 12:22 am

    Hi Rose! I’m glad you enjoyed these questions! I did too. Your answers are pretty interesting. What is a Sybian Machine? {wanders off} Oh! Thanks, Google. Well that explains your answer to #8. 🙂



    • Rose December 12, 2010 at 12:18 pm

      Are you married? Your wife will owe you for life if you got her this. Blow your mind terrific. I have the best husband in the world! It did take lots of convincing for me to use it the first time. After that, you can’t get me to leave it alone. It doesn’t replace James though. In no way. Did you ask for all that? TMI?

      • Anklebuster December 12, 2010 at 2:37 pm

        Not TMI at all. I think it is wonderful that loving couples can explore the deepest secrets of their relationship. I would definitely have to consult with her, though 🙂
