Who is the tallest person you know?

What's your favorite midnight snack?

Main Course
Have you ever found money somewhere? If so, where did you find it, and how much was it?

Where would you like to retire?

I'll answer in the comments box with ya'll!


Course that was a waste? A graduate level course: The Theory of Accounting. Even though I went on to have a career in accounting, I never once thought of even one thing discussed in this course. Complete waste of time and money, and a way to try to "gussy up" a technical field into something "educational".

Tallest? Zteen's friend Justin. He is 6'7".

Midnight snack? I try not to eat at midnight. If I do, it's usually cereal out of the box.

Found money? Not that had been really lost. The only money I've ever found was $20 in a pocket--and that was my OWN pocket!

Retire? I'll probably not get to retire. If I do, though, somewhere close to my hoped for grandchildren. Oh, and I hope it won't be snowy there.

course that was a waste? p.e. bleck!

tallest? heck, everyone looks tall to me.

midnight snack? ice cream, duh.

found money? i found a twenty dollar bill once when i worked as a hostess in a restaurant. i tried to give it back to the man i thought it belonged to; he was so impressed, he told me to keep it.

retire? anywhere under a west TEXAS sunset.

What was a class or course you took while in school that you realize now was a total waste of time? The business statistics class I took. Business management was my minor. I majored in computer science. I took engineering statistics in the math department which was a 300 level course. The business stats class was MUCH easier and consisted of about 1/3 of the material I had covered in the engineering version of the class. Total waste of time.

Who is the tallest person you know?
My wife's uncle is 6' 6". The tallest person I have ever run into (literally) was Shaquille O'Neal. That was after an LSU football game and back when he was in school. He thought it was funny that I didn't see him. I wouldn't say I know him though.

What's your favorite midnight snack?
C is for cookies. Thats good enough for me.

Have you ever found money somewhere? If so, where did you find it, and how much was it? Yes, I found $62 with a receipt on the way home from class in college and I spent it on food. I then felt guilty about it and went to the grocery store in order to determine who the money belonged to. I gave them contact information and told them if someone called and could tell me a few things they bought I would give them their money. I was never contacted.

Where would you like to retire? Bellingham, Washington or maybe Anacortes.

Course? BoZo (Botany-Zoology) 100 (Biology for non-science majors). I slept through it and aced it. I learned more biology in ninth grade.
Tallest? My soon-to-be stepson is 6'5". A man who used to work for our company is 6'8" but I can't say I really ever knew him. He worked in the New York office and I only saw him once or twice.
Midnight snack? Same as any other snack: cheese, dried fruit, or peanuts.
Found money? I found $20 in my daughter's jeans pocket while doing laundry once, but that's probably not what you mean. It seems to me I once found a dollar bill somewhere, but I forget where or when.
Retire? I don't see how I can ever leave Ann Arbor, but Italy has its charms.

Appetizer - The business courses - typing and shorthand - that I took in high school. I never found my niche in the business world. Turns out I was more suited to be a mother (of a lot of kids). Who knew!

Soup - My two oldest sons are currently 6' (possibly taller) - they make great bodyguards when I go out late at night (I'm only 5ft 2in).

Salad - That turtle flavor Chex Mix - YUMMY!

Main Course - I wish!

Dessert - Retire? What's that? If I could relocate to somewhere after the kiddos grow up and out of the house (eons from now), Martha's Vinyard has always sounded lovely to me.

Appetizer: Geometry...definitely Geometry.

Soup: My cousin Ben at 6'5

Salad: Hot Chocolate

Main Course: I am always finding money in my clothes before I wash them. I am just really forgettful, so it's exciting when I find a spare dollar.

Dessert: Into the mountains or a catholic commune in Italy.

Appetizer: Jr. High Band. Not because music isn't wonderful, but because I'm as musical as a pet rock and I only took band so I could be near Mike Mistrata...who, despite being a great drummer and a very handsome boy, turned out to be highly short-changed in the smarts department and thus never anybody I could date. Now I wish I would have tried to learn to play the instrument, rather than just sit there making goo-goo eyes at Mike (who never noticed me at all, btw!).

Soup: My husband's best pal Shane is 6' 6" and weighs about 350 lbs. The real Mountain Man.

Salad: Ice cream.

Main Course: I have found money several times, but the most significant was when I was a new Christian at 24. I'd taken my two cats to the vet to be neutered (the cats were a gift from my landlord and were going to be euthanized if I didn't take them). I was dead broke, though, and I though I'd be able to pay for the procedure with a freelance gig, but the check didn't come in time. The vet wouldn't let me collect the cats without paying the bill, and charged me $5 each per day for room and board, so the bill got higher and higher. Finally, the freelance check came, but I was $20 short. I went for a run to clear my head, crying and praying the whole time because I didn't know how I'd ever get out of the hole, and wondering if I should just get one of the two cats to save money...and then I got back to my apartment building and right in front, and I mean SQUARELY in front of the front door, was a $20 bill. I looked around to see if somebody was nearby in case they dropped it, and there was nobody there. So I thanked God for the gift and went to the vet to get my cats out of "hock."

Dessert: Anywhere close to my grandchildren, should God so choose to bless me with some someday!
