I read this meme over on Schmutzie’s blog, and even though she didn’t EXPLICITLY say at the end of her blog, “Hey, lynn @human, being, why don’t you copy me today by reproducing this fabulous meme I was nominated to do over on some very famous blog,” I’m gonna copy it anyway. The rules of this meme are as follows:

– Respond to and rework the meme.

– Answer the questions on your own blog

– Replace one question and add one question.

– link back

What are your current obsessions?
Figuring out where I can beg, borrow and steal money from so I can a) pay off my debt so I b) have enough cashflow to pay all of the house bills and my own living expenses so c) Steve can quit his job. Oh, and cheese.

What’s for dinner?

Who knows? I’m going out with Laurel. It will be fun to see where we land.

What is your greatest fear at the moment?
That I’ll lose my job.

What are you listening to?
Sarah Barreilles’ Little Voice. I really love every single song on this album. Her voice is caramel.

If you were a god/goddess what would you be?
I would be the goddess of retribution and forgiveness. I’d give people a choice between getting back at the person/s who hurt them in some creative and devastating (to them) way, and forgiving themselves and the person. I think it would be fun to see who chose the path to hell vs the path to heaven.

What are your favourite holiday spots?
Playa del Carmen, Vail, Winter Park, Napa.

What are you reading right now?
I picked up American Wife by Curtis Sittenfield , and I’m loving it. My reading adventure on that novel got interrupted by two straight days of reading Breaking Dawn, the final book in the Twilight series, which was a satisfying read.

What are four words that describe you?
creative. impatient. thoughtful. single-minded.

What is your guilty pleasure?
Watching Ghost Hunters. Lurking on others’ blogs. Eating donuts on Sundays after I work out.

Who or what makes you laugh?
Daisy Weasel. When she’s all revved up and dooking and bouncing and hopping into things, she can make me laugh until I cry.

What is your favourite spring thing to do?
Take all the plastic off our windows and let the breeze carry away all those pent-up house smells that accumulate during the winter, and swap out my cold weather clothes for my warm weather clothes. It’s like getting a whole new wardrobe!

Where are you planning to travel next?
Allegedly, to Santa Fe for my birthday in June, then Tampa in mid-July for a business trip.

What is the best thing you ate or drank lately?
In Philly, we went to lunch El Vez in Philadelphia. There, I had hands down the best guacamole I’ve ever eaten in my life. And a pineapple margarita rimmed with cinnamon sugar. O. M. G.

When was the last time you were tipsy?
@ the Philadelphia Art Museum. We had a wine tasting there and they were pouring the most glorious barolo that’s ever crossed my lips. I had three glasses of that, plus a glass of a very peachy portofino. I practically slurred my way through the Cezanne exhibit. Come to think of it, the tipsyness totally explains my 9 pm craving for 7-11 nachos that night.

What is you favorite ever film?
The Princess Bride.

What is the biggest life lesson you’ve learned from your kids?
Everyone wants to be held when they cry, even if it’s by the person who’s made you cry.

What song can’t you get out of your head?
The Saturday morning School House Rock song about the Constitution.

What book do you know you should read but refuse to?
All of those Ayn Rand tomes. I just don’t get it.

What is your physical abnormality/abnormal physical ability?
I have a lazy eye. When I’m tired, drunk or getting my picture taken, it drifts up and to the right.

What are you doing to be “green”?
I am no Ed Begley Jr. However, on Jan. 1, 2008, I officially eschewed plastic bags. I’ve been pretty consistent in not using them. I also turned down my hot water heater. Whoot!
