Hi Everyone!

I've noticed a huge decline in responses and participation since the board changed its format. Here's a little something to wake all of you up, and hopefully get more than 1 response:

(1) What does your screen name stand for (if it's not too personal)? For eg. mine is sap198: Sap is the first three letters of my name, Sapna, 1 is one e-mail account created in 1998

(2) Your favourite thing to do indoors on a hot summer day? Read or surf the net

(3) Your favourite thing to do outdoors on a hot summer day? Swim

(4) If you didn't have to worry about your weight or your diet, what food would you eat a lot of? Ice-cream (well even chocolate or donuts)

(5) Are you a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian? I'm a semi-vegetarian right now -- don't trust meat too much where I am right now (in India, another developing country like China, and they're not always careful with meat. In any case, I really only like chicken alot).

(6) Ever thought of going vegetarian, if you do eat meat?

(7) If you had all the money and time in the world, what city would you move to? New York City!

(8) Keeping the above in mind, what country would you move to (if you didn't have to worry too much about cultural or language barriers, or safety or health conditions)? Switzerland or France

(9) Wine or beer? Wine (but I rarely drink, so usually just coke).

(10) If you could easily learn another language just for fun, which one would that be? French (after I've mastered Mandarin)

(11) If you could change professions and focus exclusively on a fun job, as opposed to a practical, real career job, what would you be? For instance, I'd become a cruise ship director -- organize activities, edit and write for their newsletter, and promote their cruise line

(12) On a Friday night alone, would you rather order Chinese take-out and a movie, or Pizza and a movie? I'd generally prefer the Pizza (with more vegetables and less cheese).

That's it for now! I hope all of you are having a good day (or night), wherever you are. And I hope to hear from more of you soon.

OK, I'll post to this one. I haven't been on this board in a while and this is a good way to get me back into it. (HI ALL!)

(1) What does your screen name stand for (if it's not too personal)? An abbreviation for where I live and I'm a "mom"

(2) Your favourite thing to do indoors on a hot summer day? Stay in the air conditioning and surf the net!

(3) Your favourite thing to do outdoors on a hot summer day? I like to be in the sun doing just about anything!

(4) If you didn't have to worry about your weight or your diet, what food would you eat a lot of? Thankfully, I don't worry about my weight, but I do worry about my diet, but I'd definitely choose cheese...I LOVE cheese.

(5) Are you a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian? I'm a non-vegetarian, but I don't eat much red meat anymore.

(6) Ever thought of going vegetarian, if you do eat meat? I've thought about it, but I don't think I could do it. I love seafood and poultry too much!

(7) If you had all the money and time in the world, what city would you move to? Right now, money wouldn't matter in this equation because I'd probably move to Ann Arbor, Michigan. Why, you ask? Because it's one of the best U.S. cities for women my age!

(8) Keeping the above in mind, what country would you move to (if you didn't have to worry too much about cultural or language barriers, or safety or health conditions)? I love Canada, but it's cold there, so I would probably move to a tropical island like Jamaica or something.

(9) Wine or beer? Wine, if I have to choose.

(10) If you could easily learn another language just for fun, which one would that be? I always wanted to learn French. I can understand a very little bit of it since my aunt speaks fluent French, and I am fluent in Spanish, so I think I could learn easily.

(11) If you could change professions and focus exclusively on a fun job, as opposed to a practical, real career job, what would you be? I'd shop for a living!

(12) On a Friday night alone, would you rather order Chinese take-out and a movie, or Pizza and a movie? Pizza and a movie, definitely! (Goes back to that love of cheese)

Thanks for that, Sapna!

Great idea Sapna!!

Screenname: PeytonMiranda. When I set up this account, my boyfriend at the time and I had decided to name our kids Peyton Christopher and Miranda Grace. Hence, PeytonMiranda.

Indoor hot day: read

Outdoor hot day: Swim

I'd eat: chocolate all day long: cookies, cake, ice cream, candy, you name it.

Non-vegetarian. Like Sapna, I eat a lot of chicken though, not much of other meats.

Yes, but I don't get enough protein as it is, I can't cut out anymore.

I'd move anywhere my sister is.

See above, she's in Germany right now.

Beer, I don't like wine.

Spanish--I took German and American Sign Language in high school and college.

Caterer I love to cook and bake for other people!

Hunan Chicken and Chicken Fried Rice from House of Ing, Crab Rangoons from Won Ton, and three DVDs
