Sunday Stealing


1. What three words best describe you? Not very tall

2. What makes you unique? The way my mind works. To borrow from Apple, I think different.

3. Who is someone important in your life? Ceecee and Jen, the women I work with most often at the card shop. In the last three months, I have come to feel close to them and involved in their lives.

4. What is something that always makes you laugh? 

5. Who is someone who can always cheer you up? My oldest friend.

6. When was a time you were really proud of yourself? When I wrote that letter to the card shop back in October, explaining to them why they needed to hire me. It felt rather daring at the time and I'm still kinda surprised it worked.

7. What is something that is difficult for you? Accepting that I can't fix people and situations. I dearly want to.

8. What three places would you love to travel to? I'd like to return to Colonial Williamsburg, and Boston, and Key West.

9. What is a fun memory you have with your best friend? Laughing together at stupid shit.  The woman cracks me up.

10. If you could have dessert for breakfast, what would you eat? Strawberry shortcake.

11. If you published a book or wrote a movie, what would it be about? Pets. I adore my cats in particular and have mad respect for dogs and cats in general for how they love us and adapt to living with us.

12. Which is easier, math or English? English

13.What three things make you the happiest? Cats, baseball, the Beatles

14. What is an event in your life that has shaped who you are today? After high school, I got two job offers: receptionist in a dentist office and secretary for Sears, Roebuck and Co. corporate. I took the latter because it was in Sears Tower and I've always been enamored with Chicago's Loop. While I was at Sears, I took the copywriter test and began working on the Sears Catalog, which got me started on my advertising career. I often wonder about the road not taken -- what if I'd taken the job with the dentist?

15. Which is more important, being kind or being honest? Kind.
