Questions from beaniekins:

1. Which cat do you like better? Pipsqueak or Charlie?

Duh. Pipsqueak, of course!

2. Have you ever done something to someone else you should be ashamed of, but aren't? And if so, what?

I think I can honestly say no. I think that most things I should be ashamed of, I am ashamed of.

3. You can be a character on any television show past or present. Who would you be?

Mary Tyler Moore from the Dick van Dyke show. First of all, she had a great figure. But more importantly, I could have generalized my answer to a more generic "any of a number of women on 50's TV shows" because I really think I was born in the wrong era. Yes, I know life wasn't really like a TV show. But I like the idea of the era. I want to unapologetically stay home and raise kids and have gorgeous dinners even on Tuesday nights. I want to vacuum in pearls and wear petticoats, and know how to make petit fours. I want to live in an era where my kids can run out to play and I don't have to fret, because I know that the neighbor across the street keeps an eye on my kids too. But, alas, I know that real life really wasn't like all that. Still, I can dream.

4. What do you think is the best part of being Amish?

I perceive Amish life to be quite peaceful. No one's life is without complications, but I like the idea of the simplicity in their lives. Things are very black and white much of the time, and that appeals to me.

5. I'm a little nervous about this, but turn about is fair play. What's the advice you think I need most?

I almost declined to answer this. But I think that you need to be better about accepting people's help when it's offered. Accepting help is never a sign of weakness.

sorry my answers were so short. I couldn't think of ways to be more creative.
