Do you believe there is intelligent life on other planets? I wouldn't be surprised if there were. Given the large numbers of other planets in the universe, I think it would be logical to think there might be other intelligent life around. I also think that we will probably never know.
What is one thing you said you'd never do, but you eventually did? I can't think of anything right off the bat. I've always tried to keep an open mind about things... oh, wait. I DID say I would never (like my mother) tell my kids "because I told you so" as a reason for them to do something. I have to admit that sometimes, when you're dealing with kids, the best answer to "why do I have to...?" is "because I said so." And... now my middle daughter (who is a nanny) has learned the same lesson. lol
Who is the teacher that influenced you the most in school? Judi Davis, my eleventh grade English teacher. She really encouraged me in my writing... so, Mrs. Davis, if you are out there reading this... thank you.
If you could trade places with anyone for one day, who would it be and why? I have to say... nobody. I love my life and can't think of anyone else's I would like to live... even for a day. I'm sure everyone else has problems we don't see... and why would I want to live their problems?
What is your favorite dish to prepare? I don't know that I have a favorite to prepare (or to eat, for that matter). I enjoy cooking and finding new recipes. I have a whole basketful of recipes I intend to try "someday". And, periodically, I sit down and read one of my many recipe books until I find something that sounds interesting. I also enjoy dreaming things up... most of my experiments are a success, thankfully! The only problem is... once I've created something it's really hard to remember exactly what I did. :: big sigh:: Oh, well.
