It depends on who I'm talking to. With my close friends, no I don't lie. My drivers license says I'm about 20lbs lighter than I really am. And that's about the number I use. I'm a big girl right now so I can't lie too much....it's pretty obvious I'm not 140.


2. Whats your dream job? why?
Can I say "No Job". If I HAD to have a job, I think I'd want to be the personal assistant to a celebrity. All the perks of being famous without being hounded by paparazzi.

3. Your walking down the street and come across an elephant. Whats you first
reaction?
I might run away.


4. Is there any song you play on repeat. Might not even be your favorite but
you can't stop listening to it over and over.
Right now it's a tie between "Empty" by Ray LaMontagne and "Fugitive" by David Gray.

9. What did you think the future would be like when you were a kid? (I may

LOL
I thought I would be married younger, have a degree sooner, and be making a lot more by the age I am now.


10. Have you ever played a practical joke on anyone? What was it?
Sure. All the time. We've done stuff like TP houses and fill someones car with shaving cream once. Probably lots more I don't really remember from my late teens/early twenties.

(I love that picture of you! You remind me of Mary Tyler Moore.)

1.Do you lie about your weight? And if so by how much? I usually round to the nearest 5. So sometimes I round up and sometimes I round down. The truth is I know my weight down to the pound most days because whenever I get on my Wii fit I weigh myself, but I'm afraid of sounding to obsessive if I say my weight like I know it exactly! haha

2. Whats your dream job? I would love to do marketing for a lingerie brand

3. Your walking down the street and come across an elephant. Whats you first reaction? I would probably just stare at it for a minute trying to comprehend what was going on! Then I would stay and check it out if it seemed tame/calm.

4. Is there any song you play on repeat? The Avett Brother's "January Wedding" orrrr The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's "Fishin' in the Dark" orrr Iron & Wine's "Passing Afternoon"

5. Favorite lyric. HMMM! I don't know if I have one favorite! But the Avett Brothers always cut right to my heart. Sadly I am in a little bit of a rush and can't narrow done an absolutely favorite of theirs right now but...almost every one of their songs has at least one line that leaves me almost breathless.

6. Favorite quote. "Love is something eternal. The aspect may change, but not the essence." - Van Gogh

7. How tall are you? 5' 6.5"

8. What color are your eyes? bluey-greeny

9. What did you think the future would be like when you were a kid? To be honest I'm not sure I thought about it much. I probably lapped up everything in Back to the Future.

10. Have you ever played a practical joke on anyone? What was it? Not that I remember! I'm afraid of revenge ;-)

i don't have a scale. if my clothes fit and flatter, i'm happy.

2. Whats your dream job? why?

independent art consultant and tree-house dweller. i love talking to collectors (even the uppity ones) about what art they collect and why. then i would get to go find stuff for them that was perfect by new and rising artists. it's like buying presents for people that you know they'll love without spending your own money! tree-house dwelling is nonprofit. and self-explanatory, i think.

Probably. I don't know how much I weigh, so any figure I give is probably a lie.

10. Have you ever played a practical joke on anyone? What was it?

In university halls (dorms) it was common to catflap people's doors (move the hinges to the top) or drawbridge them (take the hinges out altogether so it just fell down) but one weekend we decided to portcullis my neighbour's door while he was away. We made rails and an arrangement of pulleys and weights so it would shoot up into the ceiling. It almost worked.

He says he never believed me but I think he did!

So I live less than a mile from the Garden or where they have Hockey and concerts and basketball and on occasion a circus.

While one day I was walking down my block to the T and I saw a bunch of people standing there so I said "whats the hub-bub bub?" and they said it's the elephant breakfast. Next thing I know this troop of elephants came down the road and stopped at these tables filled with food the local bakeries dontate and they ate breakfast then they walked back to the garden.

I called in my job at the time and said "gonna be late. I want to watch the elephants"
