I work with youth at church and we've been talking over a few fun get-to-know-you-questions, so I thought I would answer just a few of them:
What is your favorite dessert?
CAKE. Always cake. Lemon cake and pound cake and chocolate cake and cheap grocery store cake and buttery Texas sheet cake and pineapple upside-down cake and just CAKE. I love cake. It makes any day you eat it feel like a celebration, whether or not it is, and it just makes me so happy. Makes me feel a bit like this:
What would you do to pass the time stuck in an elevator for hours?
I would love to say that I would just spontaneously feel driven to read or write some epic literary thing, but that is just probably not the case. It would depend. Is there another person in there with me? I would talk to them. A lot. And tell them my whole life story and ask them all kinds of awkward questions about their love life. If I'm alone, do I have access to the internet? I would probably end up looking at memes, or social media posts. If I do not have access to the internet, I would read a book. Just being completely honest. I do my best reading and writing in my bed, not stressed out and stuck in an elevator.
Are you related even distantly to someone famous?
No. Seriously no one. I have ancestors from the Mayflower, The American Revolution, England, Sweden, Poland, and you probably have never heard of a single. one. of. them. But I'm perfectly okay with that. The only thing I mildly dislike about none of them being particularly noteworthy is that it can be harder to find good records for them when attempting to do genealogy work!
Where would you like to go someday?
The pandemic cancelled a planned trip to return to Italy with my husband and my parents. I haven't been there in 10 years and that is far too long. I have also *always* wanted to travel to India and never have. I've had a bit of a crush on Indian culture, religion, history, cuisine, etc. for many years.
Where would you like to live when your older?
The Pacific Northwest is where my husband is from, and seeing him happy and spending more time in the misty, gloriously forested mountains, smelling the salty breeze of the ocean, spending time with family, and eating delicious crab and salmon is well worth the lack of sunshine, in my opinion!
Well, that's it for now. Thanks for tuning in!
