I don't remember the last time I was tagged. Thank you Erika.
1. if you could meet one person, dead or alive, who would it be and
i would love to have dinner with helena bonham carter. she's bright, gifted and beautiful and doesn't seem to give a good God damn what anyone thinks. i love her confidence (that's my word this year)!!! she's the first person that came to mind! i got a million of em!
2. what did you wanna be when you grew up?
i have always wanted to be an artist. there were other things as well like an archeologist (but, as my mother pointed out, i hate to be dirty), but for the most part i thought i wanted to paint or dance. i love to dance but i am not very talented in the area--i mean in the professional capacity--i took ballet classes for years--but, nah, no real talent. so i went to art school. and it's only in the last fifteen years or so that i have discovered the mediums that both really speak to me: quilting and photography. i dream about both. i never dreamed of what i wanted to paint. it is so absorbing. i am learning so much about myself and living my dream. will i really excel at this? i don't know. all i know is that it is what i need to do.
3. what's your biggest asset?
4. what's your favorite late nite snack?
chocolate and wine or ice cream (not wine and ice cream!).
5. if money were no object, what would you like to do?
if it were no object i would love to design a living space for us. something right here in salem. and then take lots of trips. and also have a second home on orient bay in st. martin. then i would tons of classes on photography and go on photo walks with all my friends all over the world and spend jillions on photography equipment. and, of course, give to the poor and needy.
6. name one talent you wish you had.
I wish I were so comfortable with myself that i would make anyone i met feel comfortable knowing me.
7. if you knew then, what you know now.........
tell my first husband to take a hike and be better with money.
8. would you rather take a dip in a lake or the ocean?
i want to say both, but since i can't: ocean. i love the water.
9. what are your 2 favorite movies?
Erika had "Breakfast at Tiffany's" which is way up there with me but i think that "The Philadelphia Story" and "Georgy Girl" are the ones. ohhhh, then there is also "Gypsy". my aunts took me to see that when it came out (i think i was around 10--that's if it was 1961) and when i came home after the movie, with the soundtrack in hand, i told my Dad i wanted to be a stripper when i grew up. after that he had movie approval. but i still walked around the house belting out "everything's coming up roses"!!!!!
10. list 3 things you'd like to achieve in 2011.
really learn elements 8
finish the millions of projects i have.
Now you know a little more about me. I figured I'd tag some of my good friends & new 365-ers. We all need some distraction for the picture a day grind. i think i ran out of room to add people!!! so please don't feel left out---i was trying, honestly!!! oh major guilt rush!!!!!
