I wasn’t tagged, but Kai posted these on her blog today, so I’m answering them. Haven’t tagged anyone yet, will have to do that… Hmmm. So how about you just post and answer if you wish…


1 – What’s in your garden, and if nothing, why not? Nothing. I don’t really garden at this point in my life. I used to…maybe would revisit in the future. A cute little herb garden (an English tea-garden type thing), some veggies and flowers would be nice.
2 – What’s your favorite retro era and why? Just one? I guess I would have to say right now it’s the 40s. Because I’m thinking it’s nearly bathing season.
3 – What’s your favorite thing to do for pure entertainment (e.g. see the Opera, movies, have some beer at a pub with your friends, etc.) I like to go to the movies.
4 – Do you have pets? If yes, what kind and why do you have them? If no, why not? 1 black lab (Sam), 2 cats (Max and Evie/Peeves). I share ownership.
5 – You have a secret. Does it eat at you and you have a hard time keeping it in, or does it settle well and it’s safe with you forever? I am blessed with bliss and peace.
6 – If you could have professional help in any way, what would it be (e.g. professional landscapers, professional cleaning crew, professional chef, etc.) and why? I think it would be either the gardener or the cleaners. Because it would leave me more time to spend with those I care about. However, both practices can be therapeutic, so it would have to be on a need-to-do basis, if you know what I mean?
7 – What one actor or actress, still alive, would you want to have a private dinner with and why? Robert Redford. I have tons of questions for him about process and writing. Or maybe Jack Nicholson (Grandmama would LOVE it), just as long as we could talk about the Lakers. Or, hmmm… Nathan Fillion (do I have to explain why for him?!?) or Diane Lane—I think she would have so much to talk about.
8 – You are behind a locked door, perfectly safe for as long as you need to be. Something on the other side of the door gives you a weird feeling… a little scary, a little exciting… makes the hair on your skin stand on end, you don’t know if it’s good or bad. Would you open the door and confront it, or would you stay behind the door forever? (Deep one, huh?) Confront it. I’ve got something strong in my corner, so I can face anything.
9 – If you could go back in your past and change one single thing within your power to change, what would it be? Commit the most important thing sooner.
10 – What’s your favorite dessert? Please, be descriptive.  🙂  I have a sweet tooth today. Black Forest Cake, or chocolate-covered strawberries.
