edder wanted me to share more minutae of my life with you dear internet so here it goes.

1. What is your current obsession?

As always in the summer – So You Think You Can Dance! I love it – not sure why as I am not the demographic but I never miss a show!

2. What are you wearing today?
Brown pants, pink and white tank and a light pink short sleeved blouse. Trying to be spring like on a chilly day.

3. What's for dinner?
Roasted chicken from Sunday and salad. Am down 10 pounds and want to keep the scale moving lower.

4. What would you eat for your last meal?
Macaroni & cheese, turkey with stuffing, scalloped potatoes – basically carbohydrates and cheese with a bottle of fantastic red wine.

5. What's the last thing you bought?
Pretty flowers for our garden. However, as we are just about to start construction on our new deck in the backyard – it could be a contractors’ services for the next 3 weeks.

6. What are you listening to right now?
The typing fingers of my colleagues.

7. What do you think of the person who tagged you?
edder is a fantastic person – funny, smart, loyal, gorgeous and very tall.

8. If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
The French Rivieria – gorgeous, good food, fantastic shopping and easy access to the rest of Europe.

9. If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Denver – to visit my beloved Kacy

10. Which language do you want to learn?
I have always regretted that I never learned how to speak French.

11. What's your favourite quote (for now)?
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent” – Eleanor Roosevelt

12.What's your favourite colour?
Blue – not just any blue but that perfect, pretty blue (a combination of sky blue and Forget-me-not blue) that goes with just about everything. It is so hard to find and when I do I buy multiple pieces of it in that colour.

13. What is your favourite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
A dress I bought a million years ago and can no longer fit into. However, when Wilson and I had split for a while (this was of course before we got married), I wore it to an event that I knew he was going to be at but he did not know that I was going to be at. I had lost a ton of weight and looked like a million bucks in it. When he saw me, he looked stunned and we got back together the next weekend. I keep to remind me of the power of cleavage and a good fitting dress. Also, my wedding dress.

14. What is your dream job?
A wealthy retired woman who volunteers and gets to travel a lot.

15. What's your favourite magazine?
Vanity Fair, Vogue (LOVE Anna Wintour) and Toronto Life

16. If you had $100 now, what would you spend it on?
Summer clothes

17. What are you going to do after this?
Drive home, smooch a dog and make dinner

18. What are your favourite films?
The American President, The Sound of Music, Singing in the Rain, A Few Good Men, Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman

19. What's your favourite fruit?
Apples – crunchy and good with cheese and mangos

20. What inspires you?
A good book, a great blog, a person with ideals who isn’t afraid to stand up for them, the ocean, smart people

21. Your favourite books?
So many – A Separate Peace, Anne of Green Gables, The Inn at Lake Devine, A Thousand Splendid Suns and the list could go on and on

22. Do you collect anything?
I love purses, shoes, sunglasses and luggage. However as we are now paying for the services of a contractor, all of those loves are on hold.

23. What are you currently reading?
Then She Found Me by Elinor Lipman

24. What's your earliest memory?
Being in the car with my brother when we picked him up from the adoption agency (I was about 2 ½ and thinking – WHO IS THAT AND WHAT IS HE DOING WITH MY MOM????

25. By what criteria do you judge a person?
By what have they done for me lately! HA – actually I try not to be to judgey but often fail miserably. I do try to judge people by how they treat others, small children, old people and pets. Also, because I have a developmentally challenged brother, how people treat those that are different from them. I have seen some of the most “Christian” people be unspeakably rude to my brother and then they are dead to me.

edder wanted me to share this others so I tag KK to share her details with everyone.
