Going Old-School, Baby!

I found this through Jodi. I love these old-school memes. They’ve always been a fun way to learn something about the bloggers we read. (And, yes, it’s a good way to post when you want to write but don’t have ideas!)

What is the last thing you watched on TV?  The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion part 1. Yeah, I know. Don’t judge me.

When did you last step outside? What were you doing? About an hour ago. I took the dogs out to go to the bathroom and if I don’t stand out there and watch over them, they’ll just run around and play.

What is on the walls of the room you are in? The TV is mounted on the fireplace in front of me. To my right is a painting  of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse that we won in a charity auction for a local art college.

If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?  A house in Paris and a house in the Caribbean. I’d also pay off our house.


Tell me something about you that most people don’t know. I have always wanted to be a professional musician. I love music and I took piano lessons for about 7 years, but I hated to practice so I never really did as well as I should have.

Who made the last incoming call on your phone?  My husband.

If you could change something about your home, without worry about expense or mess, what would you do? I would remodel our bathrooms and the closet in the master bedroom. Bill and I share one closet and he has just as many clothes as I do. And because he’s bigger, they take up more room. Our bathrooms are functional but out of date. I would love a big spa shower and a huge soaking tub, surrounded by gorgeous slate and tile.

What was the last thing you bought? Lunch today. I’m horrible about packing a lunch and taking it with me to work. When I was a kid I had to choke down a lot of  gross, soggy PB&J-soaked sandwiches, so now I sort of rebel against that. (Yes, I know there are better ways to pack a lunch now than those useless old baggies.)

Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving? Nope! I am terrified of heights.

If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be? Jen Lancaster. I love her writing and I think she’d be fun to hang out with.

Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? Nordstrom. I love the fact that they routinely carry lots of size 5 shoes. Plus, you can get workout clothes and gorgeous handbags.

Is the glass half empty or half full?  Half empty. Always. Can’t help it.

What’s the farthest-away place you’ve been? Taiwan. We moved there for two years when I was 3 years old.

What’s under your bed? Shoes. And dogs. The dogs flatten themselves out somehow and sleep under the bed all night.

What is your favorite time of the day? Late morning, about 10:00 a.m. When I wasn’t working, I realized that was the time I was most awake and had the most energy.

What inspires you? I’m inspired by people who are passionate about what they do, whatever that is. I’m inspired by people who follow their hearts and do what makes them happy, not what necessarily makes them money. I’m inspired by people who are true to who they are and don’t give a shit about what anyone thinks.
