1) Which would you choose, to live for 10 years of relative happiness or 20 years of relative sadness.

Hmmmm...well, even though I'm 30 and am old, I'm also sort of young, so I guess the 20 years. That gives me many more years of happiness after that. I mean, I could take 10 years of happiness and then have 30 or 40 years of sadness. Better to take the 20 years and still have 20 or 30 years of happiness, so that you end out your life happy. Or so I think.

2) If there was one book, play or movie that you could erase from your memory just to enjoy reading/seeing it again for the first time, what would it be?

Sounds weird, but given the season--A Christmas Story. I still remember going to the movie theater with Kelly to see it as kids...our parents dropped us off while they were Christmas shopping, and that was the only PG movie starting that we could get in to. We thought it would be stupid, but it was brilliant and we *still* watch it endlessly every year. But it would be nice to have the childlike wonder of seeing it and enjoying it for the first time back.

3) Would you stay at a job that paid you $150,000 a year if you really disliked your co-workers because they were narrow minded bigots? If not, what circumstances would make you stay at a job like that?

Oh, I'd stay. I know it sounds shallow, but I could have the security I need if I was making that much money (of course, I still wouldn't live lavishly, cause I'm not like that.) You can *always* ignore co-workers. I've worked with plenty of people I couldn't stand.

4) What are the three most important traits of friendship?

Honesty, loyalty and being someone I can depend on. I need to know friends are there for me when I need them. Sadly, they don't seem to be most of the time.

5) What are the three physical things about someone that attract you the most?

Eyes, smile, hands. Especially if they use their hands when they talk. I think there is nothing better than being able to *tell* a story well, and if you get that into it that you can't help but be all gesture-ish....guh.

6) If you were truly in love with someone and you knew they were interested in you but they were unhappily married, would you pursue them?

No. I've been cheated on many (many, many, many) times, and even though I wasn't in love with any of them, it still hurt. Plus, honesty is important in a relationship, and if you can't be honest enough to end it with your spouse, I can't be with you. Because someday, I could be in her shoes, and I'd never want that.

7) If you could make a wish come true, would you make someone you are in love with, but who does not love you, fall in love with you without their consent?

Hmm...tough one. It depends. If it was someone that I knew I could make happy and there was good potential for there to be something great but something silly (like me not being a hottie or something) were preventing us from getting together, then probably yes. But if that possibility was not there and it was all about my selfishness, then probably not.

8) If you ate the last cookie, candy, or piece of pie do you admit it?

No way! Never admit that! LOL!

9) What is the one thing that you own that you would never give up?

My dogs. Even with Stanley being of the uber-bad lately, I could never give them up.

10) What are the three things you like the most about yourself?

Well, God...nothing physical, that's for sure! Blech!

But I like that I'm smart, that I have a good sense of humor, and I'm a whiz in the kitchen! LOL! If only that were enough in today's world!
