1. What is something wacky you have done? Wore a giant diva hat and sunglasses during chemo. People thought I was an actress going incognito.

2. What's for dinner? Not sure yet. I am thinking fish.

3. Favorite subject or class in HS or college? Why? In HS, our Latin class. We had a really interesting teacher, who always added info about language history.

1.  When a co-worker's desktop goldfish was dying, I had a dozen Get Well balloons sent to him.  They were addressed to Mr. Fish, and the woman on the other end nearly had a seizure when I told her I wanted assorted colors, but no black because he probably wouldn't survive the week and that would be tacky.  And then I told her it really was a goldfish.  It is STILL the best $40 prank I ever pulled :D  (mr. Fish lived another week, so he had the last laugh :D )

2. Honey mustard oven baked chicken. stir fried zucchini and twice baked potatoes.

3. Short hand.  I have no idea and I never EVER used it outside of high school, but I really enjoyed the class and I was taking dictation at 180 wpm when I graduated high school.  I regret I never used it, but I've never regretted taking it.

Ironically, enough, the skill to "hear without listening" while taking dictation served me really well when I was transcribing Czech Army radio traffic in the military.

1. I guess it was leaving a secure and well-paying job to go to grad school in a field where jobs are scarce. That could have ended very badly. 2. I dunno what's for dinner. DH is going out, and I have a church thing from 6 to 7:30, so I'll probably open a can of soup or make a salad or have leftovers if there are any. 3. I liked Latin and English literature and American History courses in high school. In college I am not sure I had a favorite class. The ones I learned the most from were completely out of my field, physics and philosophy. I really enjoyed both of those.

1.   I have always loved swings as a child so when I would take  my kids to the park when they were little I would swing also.  Sometimes when I take a walk that takes me by swings I still do.

2. Pizza

3. My history classes, always found it interesting.

1. What is something wacky you have done?

Hmm.  I think DH thinks I'm kind of wacky when I start dancing with the kids to some random dance song.

2. What's for dinner?

We're having either Grilled Cheese or Tuna Salad Sandwiches and Soup.  DH is cooking, so I have no idea what kind of soup.  We'll probably have salad as well, and fruit for dessert.

3. Favorite subject or class in HS or college? Why?

History.  I loved learning about how each event led into the next.  I also had a really excellent teacher in 11th grade and 12th grade.  He was probably the reason I majored in history in college.

1.  A road trip with good friends with less than an hour notice.

2.  I changed up the menu this week from my earlier posting.  Tonight will be roasted pork tenderloin with a balsamic reduction, cabbage slaw and baby garlic roasted potatoes.

3.  Math, I like the rules and having an answer at the end of the problem.  I do not like word problems however.

1. What is something wacky you have done? -- dressed up as wonderwoman to emcee a fundraising walk-a-thon for the WONDERtorium.

2. What's for dinner? -- pasta salad, grapes

3. Favorite subject or class in HS or college? Why? -- Hmmm, I really enjoyed my Promotional Strategy class.   Part of it was because the instructor was really good.
