Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

Rather it should be to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand and the Good Book in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO what a ride!"

1. Who do you personally know that has the coolest job in your opinion? Why do you think so?

Hmm... that's a hard one. I think that there are a lot of jobs out there that are cool. I think it is all in the manner of which the person talks about their job that makes them seem cool or not cool.

2. How close are you to your dad? What do you like best about him?

I am very close to my dad. I love that he is fun, he likes a lot of the same things I do.

3. What is something that you are passionate about?

My writing and my family.

4. How many times do you typically wake up at night?

Depends on how heavily I'm sleeping, but usually not very often, or not that I remember waking up.

5. What color socks are you wearing today?

None. Wearing some dressy shoes that socks would not work with.

6. Have you been watching much on the policital front?

Nothing particularly. It scares me to hear what I do catch though.

7. Do you still have a home phone?

Nope.

8. What are your plans this weekend?

I work tomorrow (Saturday) then Sunday will be our usual brunch.

9. From where do you get most of your news?

My husband and online.

10. What sport are you best at playing?

Not really any. I'm not a sporty person. Though I do occasionally like riding my bike.
