dance

A. Only if I knew you

11) What is your favorite sport?

A. Fairly optimistic. Even when feeling pessimistic,
I can force myself to step back and look objectively
for the optimistic possibilities.

13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
A. Talk about our pasts, what we want to do with our lives.

14) Worst thing to ever happen to you?

while my husband was gone and I was alone with our
eight-month-old twin boys and told me he had to kill
me.

15) Tell me one weird fact about you.
A. My second toe is longer than my big toe

dogs through Pets are Inn of Plano. I have four rats,
three crested geckos, ome leopard gecko and a ton
of fish.

17) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly?
A. I would invite you in, ask you to excuse the state
of the house, and offer you something to drink.

18) What was your first impression of me? (hmmm...careful!)
A. I was surprised you were in college and were in the same
area as me. I'm still trying to accept that knitting and
crochet have resurged with a much younger crowd and I'm
not alone. :)

19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary?
A. Scary.

20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?
A. Hmmm. I would thin out my mid-section. I'm pretty at ease
with my body the way it is. Things could be much worse.

place for a few friends and me.

28) Do you believe in ghosts?
A. Not ghosts, per se, but do I believe that people
who have passed on are still with us in 'spirit',
yes. But I think that is more of an internal thing,
than a physical outside presence.

29) Favorite thing to do in your spare time?
A. Read, knit, tae kwon do, learn new things.

30) Do you swear a lot?
A. Not so much anymore - small kids in the house. When
I was a craps dealer in a casino outside of New Orleans
for three years in the early 90s, I swore like a sailor.

31) Biggest pet peeve?
A. Promising something and then not coming through,
without an explanation.

32) In one word, how would you describe yourself?
A. Driven

33) Do you believe/appreciate romance?
A. I think romance is nice, but comfort and friendship
mean more.

34) Do you believe in God?
A. I believe there is something greater than us
