question quizzes.

Sara and I had a fun dinner out - totally spur of the moment - Marc called to say he was just finishing golf and would get his own dinner and Sara has manageable homework (for once!)...so El Porton here we come! While we waited and ate, we enjoyed the [Bracketology] article and bracket on the ajc living front page - we also ended up with MLK and Coke in our final two, but we picked MLK...

...anyway, we got to talking about other brackets we could do - episodes of the O.C. (yes, Sara's pick), songs (my pick), TV shows (my pick)...and a few other ideas - places, books, food, .... could be inspired!

and then I mentioned the 'question quizzes' that Katie and I had done a few weeks ago. And Sara was totally into it and begging to respond. So I said I'd post them here for all to see and respond to {leave it up to Katie if she wants to post her previous answers, too}

>Alarm Clock: Big ugly cd player - I hear the cd start to spin and I wake up most days before the music even starts; currently playing Jim Brickman, but had Elvis Costello in for a while, soundtrack from Somethings got to give and a few Andrea Bocelli cds
>Biggest Challenge: staying focused on what's important
>Childhood Ambition: don't remember! maybe to be like my dad?
>Daily Mantra: (at work) it's not like we're doing brain surgery or putting men on the moon {how hard can it really be...or why is this so hard?}
>Even when... i get copied on multiple bad news emails from senior client contacts
>Favorite author/book: HARD one, so many good ones! JK Rowling - #3 or #5
>Given a hundred dollars, I would... buy a new pair of shoes
>How are you inspired? by Katie, by magazines, by spending time with myself running
>I take my coffee/tea with... skim milk
>Joke I always tell: how do you top a car - 'tep on da brake, 'tupid!:-)
>Know-it-all about (or would love to be one about): would love to be know it all about wine, photography
>Last purchase: colored pens for Jillian's b-day (to go with the stationeryI got her)
>My best days are... sunny ones where I get a lot accomplished...or where I spendtime with people I love...or when I get to have a nap...
>Number of magazine subscriptions: 5? (Gourmet, Bon Appetit, In Style, More, Southern Living, but there seem to be so many more magazines than that - what amI forgetting?)
>Oddity...? hummm....so much to pick from - I like to heat our thermal coffeepot overnight with hot water so the brewed coffee stays hot longer?
>Picture you love the most? currently loving the funny shot of Katie and Sara- very silly - taken while we were going for our 2006 holiday photo {Katie put it in the frame on my desk}
>Quirky habit: like to take off my jewelry when I get home - not the earrings,just the rings and bracelets; oh- and I have to triple check that I have my keysbefore I lock the garage door!>Restaurant--favorite thing to order: lately mussels, but usually fried calamari
>Soundtrack I live by: I love Andrea Bocelli for "concentrating", butvarious mix CDs from Sara when I'm not working; I also love Summer Highland Falls by Billy Joel because it reminds me of Katie's senior year and Traveling Prayer by Billy Joel because it reminds me of one summer in college - I once told Karen that I imagined my entire life as BJ soundtrack, and I think that's true,but I like some other stuff now too
>Traveling--if I could hop on a plane now... so I really don't like to travel- I guess this means if I did - I've got to think I'd head to a beach someplace
>Utopias: I think my life is pretty good right now - not thinking anything else could be more perfect
>Voice you love the most (this a hard one): spoken word - James Earl Jones; song- tie between Luciano Pavarotti (sp?) and Andrea Bocelli - different takes on my favorite sounds...
>Wildest dream: that I can fly
>Xenophile? yes - strange because I don't really like to travel, but I am so intrigued by anything Italian, French or English (not so much China, Japan, Korea....)
>Your favorite place? my home
>Zen place? ditto - lately!
