1. What what you doing at age 21?  It was out with the old & in with the new.  I broke up with a long term boyfriend and stayed single the rest of the year & met my dh the next year.  I was working as a department manager in a title & escrow firm and moved to a law firm becoming a paralegal.  I was roommates with my sister, we rented a really cute log cabin house.  And later in the year I started looking and bought a 2 bedroom condo, by myself, not with my sister or any other cosigner.  

2. What is your favorite appetizer?  Love so many, usually any kind of dip/spread.  A coworker made some kind of creamy warm salmon spread and it had something spicy in it--it was almost too hot to eat (for me), but it was so good, kept eating it!  I did not ask for the recipe--it was a bit dangerous.

3. What is on your wish list for the holidays (yes, something material)?  I haven't thought of one thing.

Yes, despite old arguments otherwise Uggs do run big. My girls size 7 boots still fit them and they've technically grown two shoe sizes larger since then, Lol.

<p>Unrelated but I thought of you the other day mops, There was a video that went viral about a woman about to undergo a double mastectomy and she was dancing with her nurses and doctors before the surgery. It was an uplifting and inspiring video, not debate worthy but it did make me think of the links and opposite slants on this board. </p>

I do not think this is at all counter to what many have been posting on the subject, the general concensus is that it is up to the individual, especially those that have been on the journey in how they feel and deal with the issue.  This was a choice made by someone in the journey and I do not think that anyone  here would judge her for making that choice.

But what some have been debating is that all in the journey are the same.  They all should love "pink",  they all should use the word survivor etc.  They should not be individuals with their own thoughts and feelings on the issue.  I think that that the % of those that feel like dancing before their mastectomy is very limited.  It was no less inspiring watching my DD even though she was not dancing.

That's great, those somber faces and scars and related articles about how less effective pink causes are. I agree we should donate more at the local level. Are you doing that? I do (too). I am drawn more to the upbeat, positive faces to adversity is all.

My largest donations go towards reseach which is not at the local level.

Here is another response to breast cancer that some women seem to find empowering: http://c.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/metro-news/2013/oct/25/tattoo-artist-vinnie-myers-making-breast-cancer-su/
