Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to my blog! I thought it would be nice to have a local section to list previous (and future) posts about stuff - who am I, why do I think I'm the Queen of the Universe, my feelings on karaoke, etc. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. That way, if you haven't read my blog before and are wondering more about me (and really, why wouldn't you?), you can click on these links and read all about me! How fun is that? I've changed the color of the questions to blue. If the website is not mine, I have changed the link color to purple.

Your blog is called Green Duckies and Other Tales of Dana. What the heck does that mean?

Sometimes I say or do things that are a little odd because I don’t always think before I speak. Green Duckies are frogs. To find out why I call them green duckies, click here. Then there’s “The guy who looks like Ray Romano but isn’t Ray Romano.” There are also stories of incredible stupidity as a child, The Fish Hook Saga and Staplers Are Not Our Friends. There are the posts about why I don’t drive, reasons one & two.

Do you really think you’re the Queen of the Universe?

What? Do you think I would make something like this up? Of course, I’m the Queen of the Universe…wait, why do you have that straightjacket? No, I am not a freak. I just march to the beat of a different drummer, so to speak. Plus, it’s really fun to see people’s reactions when you tell them that you are the Queen of the Universe. Here’s how this all started.

It seems like you really like karaoke a lot. Have you written about this before?

Have I ever! Karaoke’s one of my favorite things to do. I have written quite a few posts about karaoke, starting with this one about how karaoke is Beth and my drug of choice. Other posts of karaoke include the story of Big Wayne, my favorite song to sing at karaoke, Random Musings from an evening of karaoke, the rules of karaoke, why I hate the song Picture, etc.

You seem to enjoy movies. Any recommendations?

Mike F (my former boss) would laugh at me for referring to movies as the best ever. I have written a few posts on various movies. Here is the post on how I think we need a new awards program called “The Besties.” Here are my thoughts on the last Harry Potter movie. Around the World In 80 Days, Spiderman, a whole bunch of movies in one day, etc.

You seem to read a lot. Any particular authors you favor?

I am extremely fond of Mil Millington. He is an English author I discovered when I stumbled across his website. I’ve written about him here. I also really like Nora Roberts. Here are some other posts that I’ve written about books, one, two, three, four, etc.

I bet you have some fun emails you’d like to share with us.

Yes, I do. Take your pick. Here’s the one Keem started where she imagined I was arrested for being impractical. Here’s a glimpse into how my mind works. This one is about email names I’ve had in the past.

Do you have any beliefs you'd like to share with us?

Yes. I believe strongly in gay rights. I have written many posts about this, starting with this one. And then there’s also one, two, etc.

This is fabulous, I'll open ALL links tomorrow after a few hours sleep! I wish i could do the same but no one asks me all any questions - and I wouldn't know how to do that kind of link on the side bar to general explaing post. Anyway, brillian! You just keep getting better and better! I only wish you'd linked to the blue stiffy bcs that's an unforgatable, brave post.

Dana,Love the FAQ post. This is fabulous and I will always have a quick reference to all those great posts!I agree with the Lioness. You need a post to link with the "What Was I Thinking" train posts. I like that idea. =)I miss you! I miss you! I realized today as I was singing (on the helpdesk, mind you), "Cute boy, cute boy, cutey cutey cute boy. Cute boy, cute boy, ..." that I was doing this to the melody of Fish Heads. The ... was in my head and I was thinking, "Eat him up, Yum!" I need to stop this RIGHT now.Bye!

Hey, I should probably use email to contact you or your blog. Leaving comments on my own blog probably doesn't work well does it? See, THE BOY has destroyed my sense of logic. Okay, maybe not destroyed, but I'm losing it. I am.He's sooooo cute! Sorry, I had to. By the way, I love this post again. I know I told you that already.I miss you!

I completely forgot to add the WWIT? train. What was I thinking? Goodness.I will add that soon. I'm not done going through the blog so there will be new additions very soon.Lioness, posting on the side is a lot easier than you would think and I would explain it to you but you would miss out on all of the hand waving and the curses because the page was thwarting me and that's the very best part. I figured out how to do it by reading blogger help. I don't know if that will help or not.
