    I did not really have a favorite celebrity as a child.
    We have three cats.  They are hideous and malformed.
    My favorite color is purple.

    My high school years were not really memorable.  I was a straight A student, very busy volunteering, babysitting and working.
    The word that describes me best would be busy.

    My greatest accomplishment is raising decent children.
    What drives me everyday?  The sense of responsibility I have.
    My favorite food is pizza.

    I'd love to retire on the Oregon coast.
    My business goal this year is to . . . huh.  Do good work.
    I like to vacation at the beach.

    I admire my husband.

    My mission is to live my life as fully as possible.

    If I were invisible, I would go to high school and junior high to spy on kids.

    I am attracted to funny people.
    The kindest thing anyone has done for me . . . ?  I don't know.

    I want to be remembered as very very very old.  And nice.

    With a million dollars I would pay off debt/mortgage and invest.  Then shop and go on vacation.

    I'd like to be in an island with Jeff Probst, winning Survivor. Or my husband and Bear Grylls.  My husband for company and Bear Grylls to keep us alive.

    10 minute speech at high school would be about why sex should be only after marriage.  :)
