My first stolen blog - questions and answers about me
Monday, May 31, 2010
I stole this from Kasey (KASEYCOFF). I found that I really did get to know her better when she does these. It is surprising how our perception of someone through spark can be altered or confirmed by these questions. Like who would have pegged me for a science fiction/comic book movie person?
I am doing half today and the rest later this week.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Hmm – first one is a toughie. My husband travels to great locations (Africa, Australia, Portugal, Scotland) for work and he always wants me to go along. I always want to stay home with the kids – I don’t want to leave them and it is so hard preparing to leave and coming home again, so I have never been to those places. I think that I would like to travel somewhere that has to do with early civilizations/ spirituality. I think Machu Picchu, Nepal, Taj Mahal. I would like to go to old cities – Budapest, Istanbul, Prague. And a week at a vineyard in Tuscany sounds nice. Also a river cruise (don't like cruises in big water) down an European river.
If you could have your dream job, it would be...what?
This often varies with my mood. I have always wanted to go and tutor under privileged kids. History, science, spanish, nutrition – I could do that. Please nothing with grammar – hate grammar. That is why I use dashes. Really out there dream job would be renovation architect.
What would you like people to say about you after you're gone?
She was a good person – she did her best. That sounds so pitiful - still trying to please after death.
What are 3 things you'd like to do before you die?
Learn to enjoy life without over-analyzing it – I think that it would make everything that I did come alive. Physical bucket list kind of stuff – learn to be a great cook, see the Rolling Stones Live, Trace my Irish ancestry
What movie star would you love to look like?
What is your biggest weakness?
What is your favorite color?
Coral or Lime. I wear a lot of green limey colors.
What obstacle would you like to overcome?
Being too much of a pushover and a pleaser. I try to please to make people like me more -
Do you drive fast or slow...or right at the speed limit?
I am a drive at the upper edge of the speed limit person – which means I am a moderate on the beltway in DC. On back roads - I am mostly a speed limit kind of person.
Are you a rule keeper or a rule breaker?
Depends on the rule. (what you said Kasey)
What do you say to yourself when you look in the mirror?
That my life shows on my face. And that age does catch up with you.
When is the last time you cried?
This weekend – talking about Memorial Day and those who have died for our country.
When is the last time you laughed?
Yesterday – I need to do this more.
Are you weak or strong?
Deceptively strong in a weak exterior.
Are you serious or carefree?
I am too serious – but I think that I have a carefree rock groupie/hippie inside of me and I want to let her out to play more.
What is the one thing you can't live without?
Besides Triscuits? My computer, hot showers, warm socks. Luxury item – my gas fireplace.
What movie do you never get tired of seeing?
Galaxy Quest. I love science fiction/comic book movies. Robots and Iron Man battling it out with aliens and GI Joe– I am all in. I also enjoy funny movies (did you all see It’s Complicated?)/feel good movies and romance. I also have this thing for teen movies. I started watching them to have something in common with my daughter. I would never do that with my sons - potty movies, gross out horror movies - not my thing. Also,War movies, introspective movies, political movies, horror movies - no interest.
What book have you read more than 3 times?
In This House of Brede by Rumer Godden.
Happy Memorial Day all.
