And we’re off…
What is the last thing you watched on TV? The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
When did you last step outside? What were you doing? I went to pick up burritos for dinner. Actually it was enchiladas, but it was at the burrito place.
What is on the walls of the room you are in? Nothing. I really need to get something on these walls.
If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy? A year long adventure around the world and a mountain unicycle for my husband. Don’t ask.
Tell me something about you that most people don’t know. Wow. This one is hard. I’m kind of an open book. Hmmmm… I find driving across long bridges to be slightly terrifying.
Who made the last incoming call on your phone? My husband called me (FaceTime) from the airport in Taipei, Taiwan. He said he was really happy to hear my voice which was sweet and now I really want to buy him a mountain unicycle.
If you could change something about your house without having to worry about expense or mess, what would it be? I would replace our kitchen window with a greenhouse window to let in more light and grow some herbs.
What was the last thing you bought? The aforementioned burritos. I mean, enchiladas.
Would you go bungee jumping or skydiving? Skydiving, without a doubt. I trust parachutes more than I trust giant rubber bands.
If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be? Well, that depends on if we are talking about people who are alive or if we are allowing time travel. If it has to be a living person, I’d pick either Dolly Parton (because I like listening to her talk) or Michelle Obama. If time travel is permitted, I’d skip the famous people and lunch with my grandmothers. I’d bring a notebook and ask all of the questions that I never asked and lunch would last for days.
Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? First of all, the thought of maxing out my credit card gives me hives, but I’ll play along. I pick The Apple Store. New Macs for everyone! You get a Mac and you get a Mac and…
Is the glass half empty or half full? Half full. Heck, I’ll even go with two-thirds full.
What’s the farthest away place you’ve ever been? Ireland, last October.
What’s under your bed? Nothing but dog hair.
What is your favorite time of day? Honestly, I don’t really have a favorite time of day. I like my morning coffee time. And I like the evening after everyone is safely settled into our home for the night.
What inspires you? I am inspired by people who take chances and risks, people who innovate and create just for the sake of it. I find inspiration in the diversity of people and places in the world, and I look forward to experiencing as much of it as I can. I am inspired by words and stories and books, by sunshine and nature, and by the ideas, kindness, and excitement I see in the faces of young people (three of them, in particular).
