Knowing Me, Knowing You - Oct '09

Time once again for that monthly interview project started by my friend Shan, over at Tales from the Fairy Blogmother. Why don't you join us, answer the questions yourself and then head on over to Shan's blog to link up? It's fun!

1. Crunchy peanut butter or smooth?
I refuse to eat peanut butter unless it is in the West Indian beverage, "Peanut Punch". Or, the odd Reese's peanut butter cup - but even then, I can seldom do more than 1.

2. Do you do any volunteer work?
My motto since age 11 has been: "Give more to your community than you receive." To that end, I have been a volunteer for 28 years. I tell teens they should volunteer at a place they think they want to work. If you think you want to be an attorney, volunteer at a law firm. If you think you want to be a nurse, volunteer at a hospital. See what it is really like, talk to those doing the job. It is great experience for a future resume and you help others in the process.

Currently, my volunteer commitments are light: I am the PTO secretary for my daughter's school, the communications director for the mom's ministry at church, and I volunteer in the 'crawlers' nursery 1 Sunday/month.

3. What's your favourite cold weather drink?
Tall pumpkin spice chai tea latte from Starbucks.

4. What is your favourite holiday?
I don't have one. It used to be Thanksgiving at my MIL's but then my FIL started doing some side work for Satan and they would be out-of-town every Thanksgiving. I liked Christmas at my in-law's as well but now that everyone is married and has kids and there are other in-laws and family they have to go to, we can't all just hang at my MIL's all day and have everyone come to us. I did enjoy Labor Day this last time because I relaxed the entire weekend.

5. Okay quick - you gotta hop a plane right now, to anywhere with anyone - where do you go and with who?
A family member has a beautiful resort type property somewhere warm. I don't remember where it is, but I saw a picture of it and that is where I would go with just my husband.

So, what would you do??
