1.First concert? Blink 182 hahahaha
Dream concert? I'd like to see Stevie Wonder - all my other big ones (Avett Brothers, Meat Loaf) I've seen. I would say that I would like to see Meat Loaf again but I remember being so depressed when he was getting out of breath and having to sit down when I saw him - I don't like to think that he's getting old.

2.Favorite word in another language? Proficiscamur of course ;-) it means "let's go" in Latin (more elaborately it means "let us set out in a military manner" but I don't like that military part so I ignore it and go on to the second definition!) (and I know it is a TERRIBLE name for a blog because no one knows how to say it or spell it or remember it, but I was being dumb when I created it and now I feel like I've had it too long to change it)

3.Favorite smell? Spring!

4.Who do you have a crush on?
(celebrity? author? etc)? You know, I don't think I have one.

5.Favorite soda flavor? just regular Coke

6.Coffee or tea? and how do you take it? Tea - I had been a coffee drinker since high school but a couple years ago my stomach started hating it so I had to quit. I put about a teaspoon of sugar in my tea and my favorite is Irish Breakfast from Twinning's.

1.First concert? Dream concert?
My dad too my mom to a Paul McCartney and Wings concert when she was 8 months pregnant with me. I count it as my first concert. :) Dream concert would be U2 in a tiny club. I had stadium shows, I rarely go to them. The biggest venue I go to is, like, Warfield/Fillmore type stuff.

2.Favorite word in another language?
ngrian. It's Irish for "sun". Especially wonderful when a cute little Irish boy whispers it into your ear in the context of "you are my sun, you are my moon, you are my everything". Just sayin.

3.Favorite smell?
My babies when they are small.

4.Who do you have a crush on? (celebrity? author? etc)?
It depends on my mood, but Ryan Reynolds routinely ranks high on my list.

Kelly it's a great word! I know I can't say it! When ever I say Kelly to Dave he goes profismmumble because that is how I say it!

Lisa My husband's work has a "no smell" policy and for the past 4 years he has just gotten out the habit but I miss his cologne! I like cherry cokes when they are with grenadine but for some reason I don't like cherry coke. InFACT I am drinking a homemade one right now!

CLO I love to snorgle up baby head smell.

Steve I never had gingerbeer! I love ginger so I think I need to try it.

Becky. My mom has this very distinct strong spicy smell. (think angel perfume but she smelled like that BEFORE it came out) I got a candle recently just because it smells like her and I started sniffling at the counter and got all misty eyed and said to dave "CAN I BUY THIS!" (I am not a crier) I lit it once and I got all choked up and have put the lid on it and don't open it except once in awhile because it is just too hard. I miss MY MOM! (I saw her in june but we had gone TWO YEARS before that without seeing one another)

Lesa I LOVE hugh! love!

Suz I saw your name and thought you were my mom and I couldn't figure out your answers until I clicked over here and saw your icon! I thought weird my mom doesn't drink soy milk!! I was allergic to milk as a kid and had to have soy milk and in the 70's it was so bad that you say soy to mom or dad now and they make this face! RDJ is my lovah. LOVAH I tell ya.

Hillary-
yeah, no sugar or sweetener. I am a supertaster (no really! it's been tested!), so I also don't use sugar-free stuff either.

I have a crazy sugar addiction- when I joined WW the first time about 5 years ago, I slowly weaned myself off of sugar drinks. If I allow myself sugar in my coffee and tea, it snowballs into a hedonistic day of candy consumption!

It also means we have to buy the good shit and the full cream, cause I can taste it all! I am such a bitch about my coffee now- it took Nick a good 5 years to figure out how to get it right when he makes it for me!
