    It was fun reading your replies! I laughed about the snails – yes, sometimes we ‘tastes’ something and then wonder, ‘how can i politely discard this without seeming rude?’ – that happened to me yesterday while eating a soup.. the broth was nice but the strips of what i suppose were ‘tripe’ was not a pleasant experience… i left them in the bottom of the bowl then gave them to teh dog when no one was around!

    ps.. congratulations! your choices for starting the blog were somewhat like mine.. to write about my experiences and allow my ‘loved ones’ to either enjoy at their leisure or not…. otherwise i feared they often dreaded my long emails with stories/photos…. i never expected that strangers would find my life interesting!

    ditto for you i suspect, and your life is very interesting!

      Exactly … On the same page with this one…. We all must do what makes us happy and respect others that might not share the same interest. This does not mean they don’t love us any less. I also feel just by being here sharing our experiences and we can say “strangers” but like minded people or else they would not be doing the same.

    Ok, since you seem so damned determined to get an answer out of me:

    If you won the lottery what would you “really” do with the money? “What”, or “who”?

    What is your favorite fairy tale?

    Beach or mountains? Mt. Beach, Oregon. It’s got it all.

    What food do you seek out when you’re blue? Greens.

    Favorite painter or painting? That one with the nude chick. I forget who did it.

    You’ve been given a working time machine. What era of history would you visit? Two days ago. It was AWESOME.

    Who is or was your celebrity idol as a kid? Lili St. Cyr. Still is.

    Which childhood film always leaves you nostalgic? “Children of the Corn”. God, it was like a biopic….

    What is your favorite color? Asian.

    Do you consider yourself special? Like, short-bus special? Or “better than you and any 10 people you know” special? Either way…yes.

    How has your blog changed your life in any way? Strangers now ask me to answer lists of questions. Amazing.

    Any other pressing things you need to know about me, feel free to ask. I won’t answer, but it’s always nice to be asked. Thank you.

    Whew. That took more out of me than I thought. Better refill that restorative breakfast grappa…

    Ciao, bella!
