I found this meme while reading the wonderful Red Molly Picayune-Democrat--I left a comment, she asked me five questions (thanks, Molly!):

1. What did you see on your walk?
We walk the same two-mile loop at the park every day, so what we see is mostly other people running, walking, rollerblading, biking, and sweating. And playing soccer in the field. Walking in Virginia is very different from walking in have to smile and say "hello" to every person you meet. If you meet them more then once, then a wave or smile only is acceptable protocol.

2. What's your favorite dessert?
Anything with cream cheese in it. Or chocolate. Or both. Cheesecake with chocolate sauce would be ideal. But I am in "no dessert" mode and not allowing myself to think such thoughts.

3. Which grade in school did you enjoy most, and why?
The last half of twelfth grade was awesome. I was good at playing the school game, but I never really enjoyed it. But the last few months, with all the college and end-of-year hubbub and slacking off and hanging out with friends...that was a fun time.

4. How's your garden doing?
Overgrown and leggy! I need to cut a lot of things way back, esp. some of the herbs. It's so funny how you plant these tiny plants and then turn around and they're three feet high and taking over. We have a morning glory that is making us both nervous, it seems to grow a foot every night. I think it may creep in the window and strangle us in our sleep one night.

5. How did you get into papercraft design?
I fell into it through scrapbooking. I had a bunch of friends at the time who were really into submitting their work. For fun I submitted a few pages to Creating Keepsakes and Simple Scrapbooks, and ended up on the designer e-mail list for Paper Crafts magazine, which was just being launched by the same company. So I branched out into cards and paper projects, and I've had periodic but semi-regular success with that for four or five years, mostly magazine related, but also a few projects here and there for specific companies.

Soooo...leave a comment--any comment--and I will ask you five questions. Copy and answer them in your blog and keep the fun going!

Yay, I get to ask Mimi questions!!!

1.a. How did you come to join the Orthodox Church? and b. did you practice any specific faith before that?

2. Who was the person who had the most impact on you as a child, other than your parents?

3. What's your favorite thing to do when you need a little exercise?

4. Who's your favorite Harry Potter character, and why?

5. How long have you been a vegetarian?

Just had to tell you that yeah, the last half of twelfth grade was my favorite, too. I finally realized there were other smart bad kids out there, and we all started hanging out causing trouble. We lamented not having discovered each other earlier in our high school careers; we could've built up enough momentum to really create some mayhem.

Thanks for playing! Always gives me a smile to see your name pop up at the Pic-Dem.

Yum on the cream cheese. I think I like it because it's versitile. It can go sweet or savory. Ya know.

Ask away.
