9. Favorite Fast Food Place?

10. Future Child's Name?
I don't know. My criteria for naming a child are 1. the name can't be in the top 20 most popular names (so the kid isn't one of a million Michaels or Emilys in his class) and 2. It has to sound like a FIRST NAME. If it's not your family's last name, don't use a last name as your kids first name. This goes double if the name in question is the name of a city, a state, or a US president.

It's a moot point though since Kevin and I have waffled on the kid issue for 7 years and my biological clock is in the process of winding down. I don't think kids are in the future. I'm OK with child free.

Cool, but they can get scary when they're really close and you are hoping your home doesn't get struck by lightning.

15. What Was Your First Car?
1980 Ford Granada

16. Favorite Drink?
Water. If you're talking alcoholic I like cosmos, margaritas, Mike's and whatever wine I'm in the mood for.

17. Finish This Statement—“If I Had the Time, I Would…
Spend more time with my filly and be more involved with her training. I would also do more theater projects.

18. Do You Eat the Stems on Broccoli?
Only the upper stems

19. If You could Dye your Hair Any Other Color, What Would It Be?
I'm pretty happy with my natural hair color. However, that's that color I'll be dyeing it soon as the grays keep cropping up.

Harrison NY, Larchmont NY, Mamaroneck NY, Elizabethtown, PA (college)

Holy Mozart! Did you post this before you went to bed or after you got up? I'm usually not even up at 4 a.m.!

The Short (dis)Order Cook said...

That must have been a mistake. Although I sometimes go online when I have insomnia (My MySpace blog is full of insomniac ramblings), I didn't post this one at 4 AM.

Emiline said...

Yay! You did it! Thank you. I think you're so interesting.

13 - I think it was 13- LOL! So funny! Your husband...

I love the smell of lilacs.

Now, I'm a little sad about the "Emily" thing though. But I agree with you! I wouldn't name my kid Emily. WHY oh why do I have to have the most popular name? Did you know my sweet sister's name is Rachel?
