I love my wallet. It has memories attached to it of shopping at Woodbury Common with 2-year-old Morgan, which we used to do often.

11. What was the last thing you ate? 
A Tums. My poor stomach has been struggling. Before that, some Oreos (yeah, maybe lay off the junk and my stomach will do better).

12. Have you bought any new clothing items this week? 

13. The last sporting event you watched? 
The Beijing Olympics?

My sister, Katie.

16. Ever go camping?

20. Do you prefer Chinese food over pizza? 
Both are good, but I'd have to go with pizza.

21. Do you drink your soda with a straw? 
Uh... well, I rarely drink soda. I guess if it's fountain soda, I would. But I wouldn't use a straw to drink soda from a can or cup. Doesn't that seem a little pretentious?

22. What did your last text message say?
"Yeah, about." (she asked if taxes would subtract $8K from $29K earnings)

23. What are you doing tomorrow? 
Getting up early to help Laynie study for her comprehensive exam. Scary! Probably celebrating her exam survival later. I wanted to celebrate Katie's new job, but she has to work a double (loser).

A nasty parent of one of my students.

Brandi Carlile: Pride and Joy. Ah, Brandi.

36. Can you say the alphabet backwards? 
Yes. I can even do the Greek alphabet backwards, which I learned in my high school Latin class. The teacher wanted us to be ready to pledge sororities. See, high school is valuable.

I wish!

38. Favorite pair of shoes you wear all the time? 

39. Are you jealous of anyone?

41. Do you love anyone? 
Yes, of course.

42. Do any of your friends have children?

43. What do you usually do during the day?
Depends on the day. Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays: drive all over Columbia and Ellicott City to service preschoolers in private preschools and daycares. Wednesdays & Thursdays: work with deaf kindergarteners and hearing little guys with unintelligible speech. One thing I usually do often during the day is check my email. I'm addicted to my iPhone. 

44. Do you hate anyone that you know right now? 
No, but I am very, very frustrated with a nasty, unreasonable person.

I would be more likely to say hi. Or hi-how-are-ya?

46. What color is your car? 
OK, Toyota calls it Champagne Gold, but it's Silver.

47. What size wedding ring do you wear?
I don't have a wedding ring, and I don't wear rings. I think my wedding ring finger is a 7 or 8. I have pretty chubby fingers.

48. Are you thinking about someone right now? 
No, I was just thinking about my ring finger...

49. Have you ever been to Six Flags? 
Yes, the one in NJ and I think in MD. But I hate Six Flags, because I don't ride roller coasters. It's totally boring for me. Give me a water park!

50. How did you get your worst scar? 
My worst scars are my emotional ones, but let's not go there.
I don't have any major scars, but I have two small ones under my chin. One is from when I was two years old, walking down the (wood floored) hall wrapped in a towel, and I slipped. My poor little arms couldn't break my fall, because I was all wrapped up! The other is from when I was three years old, and I fell off a bike I was playing on at a store. My chin hit the spiky metal pedal.
