11 Random Facts about Myself:

1. I love fast cars.  If I won the lottery Bugatti would be getting a call.

2. I resist going down to the humane society and adopting a bunch of animals.  My back and my husband wouldn’t be pleased!

3. My two day jobs are real estate and taxes.  Hence this creative outlet.

6. I love to dance.  I think it enhances the cooking process.  🙂

8. Top Gear UK cracks me up.  The other version doesn’t.

9.  I want to know what it would be like to fly first class overseas.  Not to be posh but to actually have the chance to lie flat and maybe get some sleep on the overnight flights!

10.  I hate shopping.

Questions from Sweet Home Pasadena:

1. If you could pick one food to eat for the rest of your life and not gain weight by eating it, what would it be? Fish and chips.
2. Are you a morning person or a night owl?  More morning but I don’t do caffeine so the start can be slow.
3. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? Did you achieve your goal?  I wanted to be a fighter jet pilot.  I wear glasses and have asthma.  I didn’t get very far.
4. Would you rather fly like a bird or swim like a fish? Why? Fly like a bird. I’m afraid of drowning and I’d prefer to soar.
5. If you cook, what is your signature dish? If not, what is your favorite meal to order?  Hmm a tough one.  I make a pretty good chili

7. What is your favorite movie?  I like Princess Bride
8. If you could invite 3 people to dinner (living or dead, real or fictional) who would you pick?  Nelson Mandela, Agatha Christie, and Dr. Who.  Well, someone has to be able to take us back in time!
