1. If you could compete in one Olympic event (not necessarily winter sports) what would it be?
Figure skating. It looks so graceful.
2. Do remember a specific Olympic moment from the past?
Oh, plenty. Just a few: Mary Lou Retton’s perfect 10s in gymnastics. Torvill and Dean’s Bolero. The Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding fiasco. Kerri Strug’s injured vault. Michael Phelp’s swimming events in the last summer Olympics.
3. Have you ever known anyone who competed in the Olympics?
4. If everyday activities were Olympic-worthy, which activity would you have a gold medal in?
I dunno. Eating? Sleeping? Reading?
5. Do you know anything about your ethnic heritage?
Like many Americans, it’s a mix. I know German and Black Dutch are in there, I think some Irish, and purportedly a little Cherokee.
6. Do you enjoy sleeping late?
Yes! “Late” these days, though, is 7 or 8. I don’t like feeling like I lost a big chunk of the day if I sleep any later than that.
7. Have you ever performed CPR on anyone? Do you know how?
No and no. I should probably learn that.
8. Name one country you’d like to visit and explain why.
Theoretically, because my dislike for travel overrides my desire to see them, Ireland or Scotland. Love the accents and the music.
9. Have you ever fixed up a couple romantically?
Only once, and that cured me. My sophomore year in college the guy I was dating and I set up his roommate and mine. They seemed perfect for each other. He really liked her, but she did not like him in that way, and it turned out very awkward for all of us over several weeks.
10. What is the last book you read?
Words Unspoken by Elizabeth Musser. Excellent.
11. Do you enjoy sleeping late? NO, YOU write the question! How’s that for random??
Do you ever add something on to a to-do list AFTER you’ve completed it just for the satisfaction of crossing it off? I have, occasionally. 🙂 I frequently make lists for myself but in the course of doing those things see other things that need to be done, or do something I forgot to list.
12. What is your favorite meal at your favorite restaurant?
It’s hard to name just one favorite restaurant, but I do usually have a favorite dish at each one. At Outback, it’s the Drover’s Platter which has both chicken and ribs, and I have enough left over for lunch the next day. At Fatz, babyback ribs. At Red Lobster, popcorn shrimp. At Cracker Barrel, usually their chicken and dumplings, though I also like their meatloaf and sugar-cured ham. At one local Mexican food place, Chicken chimichangas.
And now I am hungry….
