1. Do you get jet-lagged when you fly?

2. What was the last destination you flew to or from?

3. Describe your most recent shoe purchase.

4. How do you usually celebrate your birthday (if you celebrate at all)?

5. Do you believe Kerry, when he says that al-Qaeda is only a minor element in the Syrian rebellion?

Only great distances

Vegas

Clearance sandals. I couldn't resist.

It varies. I always enjoy dinner w/the fam, though.

Nope.

1. Do you get jet-lagged when you fly? Yep, to the tune of one day per hour time difference. I'm a lousy traveler and worse sleeper.

2. What was the last destination you flew to or from? Boston to Seattle and back.

3. Describe your most recent shoe purchase. Finally found a pair of tall brown boots that fit!

4. How do you usually celebrate your birthday (if you celebrate at all)? DH usually freaks out the night before and says, "Kids, it's Mom's birthday tomorrow," then drives to a cooking store to buy me gadgets. The day of, I make myself a fabulous strawberry genoise.

5. Do you believe Kerry, when he says that al-Qaeda is only a minor element in the Syrian rebellion? al-Qaeda, sure, but there are clearly other Islamist factions involved. It's hard to know the right thing to do here. On the one hand, innocent people who have no recourse other than to seek international help are dying, but on the other, nobody wants to aid terrorist groups, which some of the rebels may very well be. The only thing really clear to me is that the President needs to go.

"would your daughter like to whip something up for me? " ---------- I bet she would love to, but it is her senior year, so she should really be studying instead of sewing.

"I've never been to Greece, either. Would dearly love to go!" --------- Oh dear, how is that even possible! We will go drink wine or something and leave our respective husbands to chew each other's ears off ;)

"Oh I would LOVE to come visit Rolls! I have a dear high school friend who owns an inn of sorts in Greece as well and would love to see that too someday --.. someday someday! ;-)" -------- Sounds like a plan! Oh, I know! Get that former NH politician to invite you to give a lecture about theatre stuff, fundraising or to teach a summer course.
