Marc tagged me. And since I'm lacking creativity (and it's proper blogging etiquette) I'll play along.
If you could go anywhere on vacation where would you go?
I think right now I'd go back to the Amazon. I could also be happy in another tropical paradise or somewhere beautiful in Africa, but the Amazon is a known paradise. A tropical island somewhere is also sounding nice...
Where would you retire? Somewhere warm. I could happily settle (I think) in Arizona or New Mexico. Or even Old Mexico. As long as I had enough money to visit friends and family.
Most memorable birthday? 23rd. David flew me to San Francisco (my favorite U.S. city) and proposed on the rocky "beach" under the Golden Gate Bridge. But I have to share my, apparently, least memorable birthday tale, too. I was 8 months pregnant with Noodle when I turned 24, so I think my brain just glossed over the fact that I was a year older. When people asked how old I was (which admittedly didn't happen all that often) I was still telling them 23 until about the next March, when I told someone and then realized, a few hours later, "Wait! I'm 24!" I still feel like I'm 23. Which is why 30 in exactly three weeks is a bit daunting. Happily I have many friends, including David, on the other side, so I'm hopeful that neither life nor fun ends at thirty.
What is your favorite flower? I love lilacs for their smell and delicate beauty (and they are delicious when candied and put on a birthday cake), and I like the fact that they bloom around my birthday.
When was the last time you cried? Hmm, I've been a dry crier lately. Saturday night, probably (from the movie Kite Runner).
What did you do last night? Went to see Polynesian Dancers at the library, then out for yummy SmartCookies with friends. Came home, put the kids to bed, and listened to Love, Stargirl book on CD.
What are you afraid of? Losing loved ones. Also, grown people in masks scare me a little.
3 bad habits? Staying up too late, sleeping in too late, blaming people for things too soon
If I were a billionaire I would? Open an animal refuge/sanctuary
A few things your friends might not know about you? I am very gifted at picking things up with my toes. Once I even made a postcard (complete with cutting, glueing and writing) only with my feet. I'm a really great Scrabble & Boggle player. I take lousy care of my cuticles.
I tag? Blue, Debra & Native Minnow.
