11 Questions

1. What is your favorite book? And why?
Yeah, that's not a fair question... geesh :P Ummm I'd have to say... The Giver by Lois Lowry. It was the first 'book' I read and it's the reason I'm a book addict now.

2. What is your favorite Band and or Song?
My favorite band would have to be Disturbed.

3. Are you a night owl or an early bird?
I have four kids, so I don't know the meaning of sleep lol.  Put me under the category of 'insomniac' ;)

4. Who is someone you admire and look up to, and why?
           My step brother Merle had leukemia from the age of 2 until he died at 11.  He went through 6 remissions and 7 relapses. On the 7th relapse he went catatonic and died.  Regardless of how sick he became because of chemo and radiation treatments, he was always happy and never bemoaned the fact that he was sick.  He just always wanted to be a regular kid and refused to let anything get in his way.  Because of his courage and how no matter how bad things got for him he always remained positive, he is still, to this day, the one person I emulate myself to be like.

5. Are you a casual dresser or one who likes to dress up?
             lol my daily wear is basically yoga pants and a tshirt.  Only on occasion do I dress up anymore.  I doubt my kids would care either way ;)

             I'm allergic to sulfonimides.  It sends me into antifilectic

7. If you could go to any beach in the world where would you go and why?
            Any Jamaican beaches! Don't really have a reason why, except for Jamaica's awesome!

8. If Stranded on a desert island, what 3 things would you bring with you?
             Hmmm... a knife, a bundle of rope, and the biggest book I could find ;)

9. IF you could meet ANY famous person who would it be and why?
            Sean Connery.  I don't care how old he gets, he's still flipping hot!

10. What is your Favorite Car?
            Any  BMW convertible

11. Do you prefer warm hot weather or cold weather with snow?
