These are the thoughts and observations of me — a woman of a certain age. (Oh, my, God, I'm 65!) I'm single. I'm successful enough (independent, self supporting). I live just outside Chicago, the best city in the world. I'm an aunt and a friend. I feel that voices like mine are rather underrepresented online or in print. So here I am. If my musings resonate with you, please visit my blog again sometime.

Sunday Stealing: The Basically Obscure Meme
1: Do you notice a persons eye color? Oh, yes. To borrow from Chuck Berry, like a lot of good women, I'd shed a tear for a brown-eyed handsome man.
2: White, milk, or dark chocolate mocha? I have no idea what this question means but I suspect it's coffee related and I don't drink coffee.
3: If you could get a tattoo free, would you do it? what would it be? I wouldn't
4: Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it? Small town outside a major city. Hated it. It's where I left.
5: Your favorite adult as a child? (and not your parents, if they were your favorite) Either my uncle or my grandpa. My grandpa was just unconditional love, and my uncle brought fun and magic with him.
6: What kind of smoothie sounds really good right now? Strawberry banana
7: Most embarrassing moment from your elementary school years? Being one of three classmates to not make the school choir in seventh grade
8: Most embarrassing moment from your middle school years? See above. We went K-8 and 9-12, so I didn't attend a specific middle school.
9: Most embarrassing moment from your high school years? Getting caught in a lie told to save my hide. It was awful.
10: Have you ever fired anyone? Yes. More than once, and it's always been awful.
11: Have you ever climbed a tree more than twenty feet off the ground? I used to be an artful climber, but I don't recall the specific height of any of the trees.
12: Did you like swinging as a child? Do you still get excited when you see a swing set? Oh yes, and yes.
13: If you could have any pet in the world, illegal or not, what would you get? I'd like a pet goat, if I had the real estate. And any of you assholes who chose exotic pets, shame on you. They are illegal for a reason. A staggering number of them live uncomfortable and unnatural lives and end up getting euthanized.
14: What's your favorite place to relax? Right here on the sofa.
15: What's your most favorite part of your personality? I am generally optimistic.
16: Madonna or Lady Gaga? Neither? Both? Who cares? Gaga by default. Madonna has always struck me as more marketer/less artist.
17: Have you ever watched the Superbowl all the way through? Good question! And the answer is probably not. I've been in the room when it's been on, partying, several times, but I seldom care that much about the game itself.
18: Have you ever watched any major sporting event live? Oh, yes! I was right there, within the Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field, the night in 2004 when my beloved future Hall of Famer, Greg Maddux, got his 3000th strikeout! He's one of only ten pitchers in the entire history of the game to achieve that, you know. My all-time favorite Cub!
19: What's the most delicious food you've ever eaten in your life? Last year, in the Regency Room in Colonial Williamsburg, I had a memorable meal. Everything about it was terrific, but especially the main course -- scallops wrapped in bacon.
20: Margarine or butter? Which did you grow up with? Grew up on butter, now I like I Can't Believe It's Not Butter because it comes in a spray.
