French toast with blueberry compote, a side of bacon, and orange juice.

Antsy. I’ve got a lot of housekeeping to do, I need to plan for my class that starts next week, and I have a dentist’s appointment at 1:30 this afternoon…

7. Describe the last time you were injured.

Um… I can’t really remember. It would probably be when I threw my back out in January.

Mr. Chili. Man’s smart enough to figure us a way out.

The soft green henley that came with the cute seersucker short pants in a p.j. set.

13. If you could only use one form of transportation, what would it be?

My Golf (though I’m also very fond of my legs – if it came to a choice between my car and my legs, my legs would win every time).

14. Most recent movie you have watched in theater?

We saw Wall-E last night with the girls. Pixar hits another one out of the park.

15. Name an actor/actress/singer you have the hots for.

Will Smith/ Kate Walsh /Sting

16. What’s your favorite kind of cake?

Oh, Lord – you want me to limit it to ONE?! Let’s say the only kind of cake I don’t love is spice cake and leave it at that.

A bowl of cereal after the movie.

18. Look to your left, what do you see?
A scanner/printer, an empty glass of Ovaltine, and a stack of books to be put on the shelves in my library. Oh, and two spider plants that are doing exceedingly well under the window; so much so that I’m almost afraid to move them.

Most of my shoes don’t have ties, but I DO untie those that have them.

I can’t really recall. I remember loving books, though, and baby dolls.

Probably, but I don’t care.

23. When was the last time you had gummy worms?

Actually, I made a dirt cake for Punkin’s birthday in June, complete with silk flowers and gummy worms. I had a bite of one and decided they were best left to the children. Blech.

24. What’s your favorite fruit?

Again with the choosing only one?! How about we say that the only fruit I’m not particularly fond of is bananas and leave it at that?

No. I have no pictures from my childhood. I can still DO a cartwheel, though, so I COULD have a picture of such a thing if I wanted one.
