    What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
    gardening


    What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
    House cleaning - so I usually don't

    What is your favorite form of exercise? - favourite???? Are you kidding???- does typing count

    If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be like and what would it be for?
    Birthday Party - for me! - I started when I was 29 to have my "Last Birthday Party Ever" (so I wouldn't turn 30) But everyone loved it so much (in the middle of January when everything is blah!) that I had to keep going - last count, I believe was my 29th annual "Last Birthday Party Ever".
    People could invite whomever they thought would have a good time. We would usually have Karaoke. There were romances, marriages begun and ended at those parties. In later years we would just go to a local pub and have fun! I always brought a "timeline" where people had to sign in where they had first met me and how along my lifeline. Fun, Fun, Fun!


    If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?
    The dancing in the streets at the end of the War in Europe.

    If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
    Tell my dh and then lay low for a while so we could make some sensible plans.

    What would you name the autobiography of your life? -
    47 Homes and counting

    What songs are included on the soundtrack to your life?
    That's so hard - I LOVE music - so it would be an extensive list- of all types of music

    What was the last movie, TV show or book that made you cry or tear up?
    Definitely Gran Torino with Clint Eastwood at the end - and - oh yeah, Incredibly Loud and Extremely Close. Oh, and I have to also say "The Notebook". I was SOBBING uncontrollably in the theatre!

    What word describes you best?
    Steady

    Where do you want to retire?
    Well, I retired to Chatham Ontario but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it - but life dictates your decisions.

    You have a 10 minute speech to give at a high school, what is it about?
    How important it is for girls to become as independently wealthy as they can be. Never rely on someone else to provide for you - because that can disappear in an instant. And to the boys - real men are respectful and caring.

    Last sporting event you went to?
    Hockey game at the St. Pete's Times Forum in Tampa.

    Have you ever met anyone famous?
    I was in love with the poetry of Raymond Souster - a Canadian Poet who's "real job" was working as a Securities Officer for CIBC in Toronto. I did a research study on him for my Canadian Literature course in University. I looked him up and asked him to lunch - I was about 23 - he was about 50. He came and met me and was very gracious and gave me some autographed copies of his books of poetry. (I think they would call this "stalking" now!)

    What was your first job?
    Either working at Dairy Queen or engraving Christmas Cards and wrapping presents at a book store (I can't remember.)

    Do you collect anything? What? Coupons

    Favorite flower?
    Gladiolas

    When do you start decorating for Christmas?
    Depends when we are around and when the relatives are coming - I LOVE Christmassy decorations so as soon after US Thanksgiving as I can justify it.

    What was your favorite food when you were a child?
    Ham and potato salad, the way my Mom makes it. Still my fav.

    What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
    Picnics with the brats.

    What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
    Dishes. I am sooo tempted to let the brats help...

    What is your favorite form of exercise?
    Playing tag with the dog & throwing the cat in the air (& catching him, of course ).

    If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be like and what would it be for?
    An ice cream social to celebrate the dog days of August (vanilla ice cream would be served for the 4-legged guests).

    If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?
    My funeral (no, I don't mean to be morbid), so I can make sure that my family & friends adhere to my wishes & throw a party & enjoy themselves.

    If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
    Ya mean after I have the cheque in my hot little hands? I'd get in touch with the owners of a little plot of land I've had my eye on for years & purchase it. Second thing would be to get in touch with my boss' boss & get his input on building a theatre on the land (not enough theatres in this town),

    What would you name the autobiography of your life?
    I'll need another 9 lives to get through this life.

    What songs are included on the soundtrack to your life?
    I will Survive, The Best Was Yet to Come.
    Here's another one from my misspent youth that sort of describes my relationship with the brats:


    What was the last movie, TV show or book that made you cry or tear up?
    I rarely tear up unless a critter is hurt or worse. I'm odd in that I can watch a film about a serial killer with no effect, but an episode of Lassie with a baby cougar in trouble & I'm a wreck.

    What’s the best/worst gift you’ve ever given/received?
    Received:
    Best - every year my friends & family give me a season's pass to live theatre shows
    Worst - my ex the artist gave me a sweatshirt for Xmas (the only present I ever got) which he'd gotten from his Mom who got it as a promo


    Given:
    Best - I sent my folks to Vegas for their anniversary (my Mom LOVED Vegas)
    Worst - a cute gift basket full of bath soaps for a friend, not realizing she was allergic to those scents


    What word describes you best?
    saccharine-sweet - I'm the most annoying optimist that ever lived

    Where do you want to retire?
    somewhere hot with either no bugs or a pest control person as my room-mate

    You have a 10 minute speech to give at a high school, what is it about?
    try to find happiness in all the little things that happen each day, take some risks as long as they're calculated, don't worry about plans that don't work out since something better is usually waiting around the corner

    Last sporting event you went to?
    hockey game, but that was eons ago

    Have you ever met anyone famous?
    quite a few, depending on what one considers famous - Bryan Adams (), some other Canadians

    What was your first job?
    paper route when I was a kid - the evil old days when I also had to collect $ from the customers who never seemed to have any cash on hand

    Do you collect anything? What?
    I used to collect stamps, I still have my dollhouse furniture (set up in my cabinet where others would put pretty porcelain cups)

    Favorite flower?
    I suppose I should say Lily.

    When do you start decorating for Christmas?
    Beginning of December
