Thought this would make a good "Getting to Know Me" post

Birthplace: Bawlmer, Merlin, hon!

Age: 34

Birthday: August 29 (just 49 more shopping days, folks!)

Hair Color: Dark Brown

How long/thick is your hair: [pause while I fetch a tape measure] 28"/not too thick, not too thin

Eye Color: Brown

Height: 5' 9"

Personality: INxx (I test both ways on both of the last two depending on mood, time of day, day of month....)

Do you drink? I'm pretty much a teetotaller, but by taste, not by conviction. I kinda wish I could find something alcoholic that I actually liked! Any suggestions?

Have you had your appendix or tonsils out? Alas...at the tender age of 13 I lost my best sure-fire excuse for getting out of school: "Mom, my throat's sore -- look -- spots on my tonsils!" I'd figured out just how to hold a mirror so the light would reflect back in my throat and show off the offending spots.

Have you ever gone skinny dipping? Not to my recollection.

Have you ever been convicted of a crime? No.

'Dream' dream car: Anything chauffered would be dandy.

Favorite place to visit: Yellowstone

Favorite soft drink: Cream Soda

Adidas, Nike, or Reebok: None of the above

Favorite Blog (other than your spouse's): Too many to choose from! Paulo's is the purdiest, tho.

Favorite subject in school: Art

Least favorite subject in school: Econ/Poli Sci

Favorite movie: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, The Joy Luck Club, Lady Jane

Favorite book: I suppose saying "The Bible" would be cheating, eh?

Favorite alcohol: See above. Though I am always pleasantly surprised to find the real stuff served at the Lord's Table!

Favorite sport to watch: Am I allowed to say figure skating, or is that too girly? Who cares! I am a girl!

Favorite sport to play: Power Napping

Anything different about you: I am unique in all the world. (Ask a vague question, get a sappy answer!)

Tattoos/Piercings: Ears.

Quotes: There's only one alternative to getting old

Favorite ice cream: Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey. All other foods pale in comparison.

Favorite color: Pretty much the ones on this page. Also quite fond of red and pink (though generally not together).

What's your bedtime: Two hours ago

Favorite TV Show: There's nothing I watch religiously. I like to catch stuff like "This Old House."

Words or phrases that you overuse: Can't think of anything off the top of my head.

Something that can be improved upon: Too little self-discipline.

What you want to be: The sort of woman who would make a really good wife and mom, even if I never get to be either.

The one place you would like to see: Can't think of anyplace off the top of my head.

(Semi-)Famous person you have met: Eugene Peterson (used to be my pastor); R.C. Sproul, Jr. (wishes he were so lucky) (kidding!)

Favorite animal: Certainly not this evil wretch:
