Hi Partners! Here are my answers for the "I'm nosy - email question swap". I hope you enjoy reading my answers, and please remember to rate!!
1) what's your middle name? Ann - no E!
2) have you ever traveled outside your country? I've traveled to Mexico, Belgium, Antigua, Barbados, Dominica, St. Kitts, St. Thomas, St. Lucia, although I guess technically St. Thomas is part of the US
3) what's your favorite song this week? I've never really been able to pick a favorite song, even for a week! My tastes are just too varied I guess...
4) if you could change your name, what would you change it to? When I was younger I always wished I could change my name. There were just too many Jenny's my age! Now though, I can't think of anything I'd like to change my name to. My 3rd grade dream name was Crystal though ;)
5) ever have a broken bone? Nope, never!
6) what celebrity would you like to play poker with? Ahh! I hate poker! My answer is no one!
7) have you ever felt an earthquake? Nope.
8) ever see a tornado? My mom claims that once when I was little we saw a few tornadoes off in the distance and I was really scared, but I don't remember that at all. I do remember seeing a huge water spout at the beach some years later (still a long time ago). I remember not really knowing what it was, and being horribly inconvenienced because we had to leave the beach early, and waiting in the car while my mom went to buy us popsicles. Kudos to her for staying calm about it, because I had no idea that anything was wrong! I don't think it ever made landfall though.
9) did you ever find waldo?
Haha. Sure! We had all the waldo books. We also had a few weird Christmas versions like "Find Santa" and "Where are the 12 days of Christmas"
10) what time is it now?
11) if you could be on a game show, which one?
Wheel of Fortune! I love Wheel of Fortune!!
12) if we colonized the moon, would you go live there, if you had a choice?
No way. I find outer space slightly terrifying. It's just so vast and empty...
13) some pet peeves.
People lying about things that are so insignificant that why would you even bother making a lie up about it, waiting around on people, using the wrong there/their/they're or your/you're (although I'm sure I've done that one when I'm in a hurry...)
14) some things you like about summer.
Campus being empty (I work at a university library, so even though I'm still here in the summer, it's nice when the students aren't!), going to the beach
15) some things you dislike about summer.
It's too hot! Having to water the lawn (I'm pretty sure it hasn't rained all summer). Sunburns.

It's too cold! I get really hot wearing a sweater. Crazy drivers who don't get enough snow to know how to drive in it (I guess I'm one of those though!)

I have such a hard time picking favorite songs. A lot of the reason is probably because I don't know any song titles...

Yes! It was actually pretty recently. I grabbed the wrong set of car keys off of the night stand, and didn't realize it till I was already outside. I realized I'd forgotten my wallet (otherwise I would have been able to unlock it with a credit card - the lock isn't that good...) Lucky for me, my husband was down the street working on a recording job, although he had to come to me since I couldn't drive there with the keys I grabbed - I don't know why we even have that set of car keys because it will NOT start the car, even though it's supposed to be our spare set...
