all about me

Thanks to Sue from Living and Learning!

1. What's your middle name?
2. What's your favorite magazine?
I haven't been in the habit of reading magazines for years... once upon a time I liked American Girl Magazine and Ranger Rick, though! Nowadays I think National Geographic might be a good source of inspiration for photo composition.
3. What are you wearing right now?
Workout clothes... purple shorts, black tank, and black hoodie.
4. What color are your bed sheets?
5. Who was your third grade teacher?
Sister Alma

Dark and cool, with a good chance of rain.
7. Do you know how to ski?
8. What was the last thing you drank?
Cold water.
9. Dream vacation?
I wouldn't really care where I went as long as someone else was taking care of all the logistics, and if we were able to fly first class if it was a 6 hour+ flight. But I'd like to be able to go horseback riding and canoeing, and maybe have an archery lesson.
10. Favorite article of clothing?

11. Do you prefer baking or cooking?
I don't much like either, but I'll go with cooking.

Water, or hot water so I can use an herbal teabag. A really splurgey drink would be iced cocoa with whipped cream on top and hazelnut syrup.
14. What book are you reading?
The Fitness Leader's Handbook, Third Edition.
15. What did you dream about last night?
It was a vivid dream. I was leading a tour group across a famous bridge somewhere, and one of the group was trying to jump off the bridge, but at that moment one of my real life friends came cycling toward us and fell of his bicycle onto the pavement, and then everyone rushed to make sure he was alright. Then later, I was with someone else and we were trying to hide from some creepy Guy Noir-type character who kept following us.
