Answer Me This: books, cheese, and sunglasses

1. What is your favorite picture book?

How in the world am I supposed to answer this?  My whole life seems to revolve around picture books, and so many of them are good.  A few standouts: Blueberries for Sal , Love You Forever (creep factor aside, I’ve loved this book since I was a kid), anything and everything by Ingri and Edgar D’Aulaire.

2. Are you a boycotter?

I dunno.  I have been in the past, but I’ve kind of backed off a bit.  I’m all for political stands, and I do think that money talks, but mostly I prefer the positive approach.  I choose to support causes whose values I support.

3. How do you feel about cheese?

Yes.  Cheese.



Q: Do you know why I’m eating goat cheese straight out of the package? A: Because I am awesome, I love delicious food, and I don’t stand on ceremony. #yum

4. How many pairs of sunglasses do you own?

Currently, I have somewhere between 2 and 4 pairs… of scratched up 99 Cent Store sunglasses.  Ugh.  They’re leftover party favors from Aliya’s Super Spy birthday party.

I usually have one or two cheap pairs of my own laying around, but I misplaced one and broke the other.  Argh.  This is why I don’t spend more than a few bucks on each pair.

5. How long has it been since you went to the dentist?

Just last week, as a matter of fact.  And guess what I learned from my hygienist?  Some insurance companies will pay for 3 cleanings instead of 2 while you’re pregnant!  I’m too late to take advantage, but I thought I’d pass it along to other mamas who might want to know.

6. If you could visit any religious site in the world, where would you go?

Holy Land, without a doubt.  I’d give a whole lot to walk the roads Jesus walked, and visit the sites of his birth and death.
