Le Tag!

My sister Mary tagged me to fill out some awesome questions -who doesn't want to get to know me better, riiiiiiiiight????

1-What would be your ideal vacation?
If I could go anywhere on vacation, it would be Italy. I would love to really embrace the romance and beauty of the culture and landscape. ...And I would shop shop shop!

2-If you could have any paid career (with or without having to go through years of school to do it), what would it be?
I would do hair and makeup for the stars- maybe a soap opera... One of my favorite things to do is really make things beautiful, and this would be a lucrative way to fulfill my passion!

3-What is your favorite song of all time?
Most people know that "The Boxer" by Simon and Garfunkel is my favorite song of all time --it's just so beautiful and intense.

4-What did you do on your very first date?
This is NOT a pleasant story! The boy had been waiting to take me out -and once I turned 16 he pounced! He wasn't quite right upstairs, and the entire experience was off-the-chart uncomfortable! Yeeeeaaaah, his Dad drove for the date.

5-If you could have one free plastic surgery procedure, would you do it? What would you change?

6-What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
Well, it used to be "The Hills" -but every time I watched it, I felt like I should go round-brush my hair... Now it's Lady Gaga. :)

7-What is your favorite day of the year?
CHRISTMAS!!! It's SO beautiful from the inside out. The celebration of Christ and the spirit of giving is so incredible and important. The surprises and gestures between family members are precious. I love the preparation, the anticipation, the cooking, the decorating, the music.... I could go on and on.

8-What did you do to celebrate the turn of the millennium (New Year's Eve, partying like it was 1999)?
Oh man. That was a ROUGH time. I was married to my ex-husband Andrew and his Mom had died on that Christmas Day. We were in Bala Cynwyd, PA sitting shiva over her death (a Jewish tradition) as the millennium changed. We had considered cruising into NYC for the big to-do, but it didn't happen. Not much partying that holiday. : /
...Rest In Peace, Naomi.

I'm not specifically tagging anyone, but YOU should do it, my friendly readers!

So the first thing that caught my eye while reading this post was "Free!?! Heck Yeah!!!! BOOBS!!!!!!" In context it is funny, but out of context even funnier. Makes me really want to find out what you're writing about :-)
