Favorite person (outside family)? My friend Jenny from high school. We've lived far, far apart for years now. We're vacationing with her family this summer (after our fifteen(!) year reunion) and I can't wait.
Favorite food? We just got an immersion blender and I've rediscovered smoothies. I like tricking myself into eating my veggies.
Quirks about you? Too many to list, I'm afraid. Some examples: I'm squicked out by the sound of chewing and I mispronounce the word "measure."
How would the person who loves you most describe you in ten words or less?Let's go straight to the source, shall we? T: "Caring, thoughtful, deep thinker, needs her alone time, great smile." Aw.
Any regrets in life? Not blogging under a pseudonym.
Favorite Charity/Cause? Doctors Without Borders does good work.
Something you can’t get enough of? Good writing that makes me realize something new about myself, the human experience, or capital-T Truth.
Worst job you’ve ever had? Telemarketing, hands down. It sucked the very soul out of me.
What job would you pay NOT to have? Anything involving mold, rotten things, bugs or excrement. Blech.
Favorite Bible verse right now? Wow, assuming much about your audience there, meme writers?
Guilty pleasure? French fries.
Got any confessions? I see dead people.Oh, something true? I totally watch "The Ghost Whisperer" on Friday nights.
Although my grandmother insists I saw my grandfather a few days after he passed away. I was three and we were at their house. I guess I was calmly, not playfully, telling them he was in the room and couldn't understand why they couldn't see him, too. Who knows?
If you HAD to spend $1,000 on YOURSELF, how would you spend it? New clothes. Oh, my sad little haphazard wardrobe.
Favorite thing about your house? That we own it. And the bank of windows in the kitchen.
Least favorite thing about your house? Not having even a half-bath on the main level.
One thing you’re good at? Making chocolate chip cookie bars. They are famous among dozens.
Wow, is this meme still going? This is obscenely long.
If you could change something about your circumstances, what? I wish we had more space to host people.
Who would you like to meet someday? Nina Totenberg. Gold star for you if you don't need to Google her.
What makes you feel sexy? My husband.
Who is your real life hero? You know, I'm not sure I have one. I admire people who set aside their own ambitions to help other people to better lives.
What is the hardest part of your job? Finding time to do everything.
When are you most relaxed? When I have a guilt-free stretch of time to get lost in a book.
What stresses you out? Being late. Feeling out of control of a situation.
What can you not live without? My family.
Do you agree or disagree with the recent article that reported that blogs are authored by narcissists? I don't think there are as many true narcissists in the world as there are bloggers. I'm sure some people blog for self-serving reasons, but I don't think reflection and wanting to connect with like-minded people is particularly self-centered.
