I got Tagged...

...by Marianne at My Violet Thoughts

So how does this work?  She's asked me several questions that I get to answer, and then I choose some of the bloggers that I read to answer questions that I think up.

Her questions for me:

1) If you could go back in time and choose a different career path what would you choose?

I'm still working on mine, but if I were to go back in time, I would choose to have faith that I would find a way to pay of the loans and I would go to medical school.  It was a big dream of mine, and part of me really regrets not making it happen.

2) If it was possible to know what would be going on in your life 5 years from now would you want to know?  Or would you want to be surprised?

This one is kind of up in the air.  Part of me really likes surprises, and I really think that know int the outcome causes you to make different choices, and therefore changes the outcome anyway.  So - I'll stay in the dark, and take each day as it comes.

3) What character from a book, movie or tv show is most like you?

I just don't know.  I've never found one character that really feels like me, althoguht I've found characters that seem to do well for bits and pieces of me like Abby from NCIS, and Merry Gentry from Laurell K Hamilton, or Phedre from  the Kushiel books... or even Armida from "A tale in the suicide Mountains"  I'm a bit all over the place....

4) What's your family's best holiday tradition?

We've got a great big upheaval in family traditions right now - my parents got divorced a couple of years ago, and don't speak much now.  One of the best ones was getting together Christmas morning/afternoon, having brunch in our PJs and exchanging gifts.  Certainly something I would like to see continue, and something I want to carry on to another generation.  

The other thing that happens every year is that the extended family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc - there are about 50 or more of us) get together for Christmas eve and do a white elephant gift exchange.  It's crazy - but a whole lot of fun.

And now I get to tag some others, Questions first:

  1. What would you say is the craziest thing you've ever done?
  2. If you had to pick one thing to describe yourself as a child what would it be (the shy one, the quiet one, the crazy one, the pretty one, etc..)?
  3. If you could go an vacation anywhere in the world for as long as you wanted (No obstacles), where would you go.
  4. What is your Favorite Color?
  5. If you had three wishes, and you could only use them for other people, what would you wish for?
I'm tagging:


  1. I love this game :) and white elephant with tons of people is such a riot :)

  2. I love the brunch in pajamas idea! I may start that with my family!!
