Chan's Questions:

1. Sweet or salty treats? Both of them together!

2. Red, white or blue? Blue, I love the color blue, so much so that in High School my friends picked on me saying my whole wardrobe was blue, since then I avoid blue.

3. Dinner or supper? Dinner, not sure why, supper just sounds odd to me.

4. House phone or just a cell phone? Only a house phone, but I am working on my husband. After all, we pay $50 a month for a phone we barely use.

5. We’re having a progressive dinner. Which course do you want to host? Appetizers, for one I find way more creative possibilities in appetizers, but you can make different things also. Plus, no one puts too much emphasis on the appetizers, so I wouldn't feel as stressed about it.

6. What song is your theme song? If I didn't have you by Thompson Square. Without my husband I wouldn't last long.

7. Favorite charity? SPCA, since I live in Erie county that is who I donate to.

8. Do crowds energize you or drain you? Drain and stress

9. What is your favorite piece of art in your home? The art on my refrigerator from my nieces

10. Books – paper or electronic? Agh, I so hate to say this, because I never thought I would . . . but electronic. I still love a good book, but it's just not as convenient.

11. How many pairs of flip flops do you own? None. Every once in a while I own a pair, but I hate the feeling of them between my toes.

My questions for you:
1. Do puddles begs to be jumped in or would you rather stay inside?
2. Do you still own any stuffed animals from your childhood?
3. Handkerchief or tissue?
4. Can you ever wear too much color?
5. Make it or buy it?
6. Curly or straight?
7. If time and money weren't an issue, what would be your ideal vacation?
8. If you could start your own business, what would it be?
9. Sunset or Sunrise?
10. If you could be one super hero, who would it be?
11. What is your favorite season?


  1. Oh yay!! I'm so glad you played along! And for pete's sake, wear blue if you love it. Phooey on peer pressure, especially from high school.

    You inspire me. I need to walk away from this sinking ship but I truly don't know what I want to do. (Well, I do... but starting Sissy's foundation won't pay the bills.)

    I love those questions too.

    1. I'd rather stay inside.
    2. Yes... 'bout all of 'em.
    3. Tissue
    4. Me personally? Yes. I need variety.
    5. Depends... clothes? Buy it. I'll have to live to be 108 to learn to sew with any reliability.
    6. Yes? Hair is wild and wavy today, but one day last week I had great, soft curls. Another day, it allowed me to straighten it.
    7. Greece. For some reason, I feel that I simply have to see Greece or my life won't quite be complete.
    8. Sissy really wants her own foundation, to promote canine glaucoma awareness and other things that move her. I'd just like to publish a few books.
    9. BOTH!!
    10. I remember really liking Isis when she had a show??
    11. Spring? I like the flowers and the return to toes-showing.

  2. My opinion, make the baby stuff. I went with the "if you build it, they will come" theory. If it doesn't happen you can always donate then stuff. Live life like you will get what you want.

    As for the small business, why not! If you don't try, you will never know!

    1. Jump in those puddles!!!! 2. Yes, I gave it to my little one though. 3. Tissue. 4. Yes! 5. Make it but I usually can't so I buy it. 6. I want curly!!!!! 7. Ireland!!! 8. Restaurant and Pub 9. Sunset 10. Superman 11. Summer

  3. Congratulations on taking the leap to find a job you'd rather have! I used to wear all blue and green. Now it's all red and purple, and a little bit of teal. Go figure.

    Puddles should be jumped in. No stuffed animals. Tissue. Yes, too much color is a distinct possibility. Make it. Both - depends on the day. Somewhere quiet, with no people and a large body of water. I guess dyeing, since I already half have that business. Otherwise, perhaps freelance writing. Sunrise. No idea...not into being a superhero in general. Fall.
