36 things to know about my friends.

This was posted on Brenda's page, I answered these things so you'll know them about me, and I'd love it if you'd do the same for me as a comment on this post, then copy and paste and post your answers on your own page so that your friends can learn about you. Doesn't matter if you're a frequent poster, a lurker, an occasional visitor, or a friend I haven't met yet...

1) Are you currently in a serious relationship? Yes with my dear husband of 8 years. I also consider the relationships with my kids, my step kids, and my friends to be serious too.
2) What was your dream growing up? Always wanted to be a "stewardess". lol. I got sidetracked along the way for awhile but I have now been flying for nearly 23 years.
3) What talent do you wish you had? Organizational and time management skills
4) If I bought you a drink what would it be? We could share coffee in the morning, iced tea in the afternoon, and a full bodied Red Wine in the evening.
5) Favorite vegetable? I love any except okra.
6) What was the last book you read? Heroes in Time: Robert E. Lee, a novel, by John J. Dwyer
7) What zodiac sign are you? Leo
8) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? No tattoos, but pierced ears (3 sets) and navel pierced
9) Worst Habit? Wasting time putting things away and cleaning up because I didn't put those things away in their proper places the first time I touched them.
10) If you saw me walking down the street, would you offer me a ride? Of course I would! Then we could chat along the way.
11) What is your favorite sport? To watch: don't watch much sports, probably Ice Hockey when the Flames are playing; to play: Strolling in the country...walking, hiking.
12) Do you have a Negative or Optimistic attitude? Rarely negative, usually more optimistic than reality calls for. Just call me Pollyanna.
13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me? I think we'd talk, and get to know each other better while we made the best of the situation. Elevators don't bother me, and we'll probably be laughing and having a good time by the time we're rescued.
14) Worst thing to ever happen to you? Losing my Mom
15) Tell me one weird fact about you. I am a consumate packrat.
