Nance over at the Dept. has given me a reader appreciation award! And since I appreciate being appreciated I’m answering the questions & passing it on. Thanks Nance!
::Where do you do most of your writing/blogging? Shh… Are we alone? Come a little closer please. I do most of my blogging at work. In between my actual, you know, work related tasks. I’m a good employee. Really!
::What books were your childhood favorites? Well, obviously, Old Black Witch, because of the pancakes. And Nancy Drew & Encyclopedia Brown because oh MAN HOW COOL WOULD IT BE TO BE THEM! But really, the one that tugged on my heartstrings every time I read it was Heidi, (et al.) Sigh.
:: Who is your favorite fictional character? I’ve thought long & hard about this & I’ve decided that it’s a type, not a particular person.

I kind of like my morning & evening commutes because I can listen to my audio books, but I also like dinner time because I can catch up with Dr. M about his day. But my very favorite time is on Saturday morning around 5:00 a.m. when I wake up & need to go to the bathroom – I know I can go back to bed and sleep for 3 or 4 more hours!
::Have you ever Googled yourself and been surprised at what you’ve found? Yes I have. And no I haven’t. It’s all the usual stuff – LinkedIn, Facebook, Blogger…
::Who would play you in a movie of your life? Janeane Garofalo. Except she’d probably have to dumb it down a
OK, who would I like to see answer these questions? Hmm. Well, it would be cool if all of you would. But I’ll just
