First - thanks for the good wishes for Bob. Haven't heard yet today how he's doing - hope it's ok. A really big thank you to Larissa for sharing her advice and offer to help :-)
Ok, now on with today's post. I'm snitching Margaret's list of questions or, as she termed it the Hangin it all out there Quiz. Hope you don't mind, Margaret - but I had fun reading your answers and figured I'd give the questions a go myself :-)

WHAT’S YOUR CURRENT FAVOURITE T.V. SHOW? House (though I'm not watching it, so Sean and I can watch the reruns once he's off the early shift) Heartbeat. My Name is Earl. Rescue Me (on hiatus). American Chopper (the ep with Sr and the boys in Edinburgh was hilarious)

IF YOU COULD GO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD ON VACATION, WHERE WOULD YOU GO? Hmm, this one is really hard. There are soooo many places - but for fun, I'll answer Poland.
WHAT IS YOUR BEST PHYSICAL FEATURE? No idea, really. I'm not satisfied with most of me. But I guess, if pushed, I'd have to say my neck and/or my high cheekbones.

FAVOURITE SPECTATOR SPORT? Hockey.
GOAL YOU HAVE FOR YOURSELF? To finish my new ms this year.

SMALL THINGS YOU REALLY ENJOY? Sipping wine on the deck with Sean and watching kids play soccer in the field behind our house. Curling up on the chair in Sean's office while he edits stories for the next morning (an evening ritual here). Waking up to find Cleo curled in the crook of my knees or cuddling Chloe while she purrs in my lap.
ANY NEW AND EXCITING NEWS TO SHARE? Other than our conditional sale of the house and the impending move to the West Coast, nope - can't think of anything :-)
