Fascinating, I’m sure

Inspired by the “25 Things” meme that was floating around the net of late, as well as the aforementioned questionnaire by Bernard Pivot, my own variation. Or, as I like to think of it, the ultimate in narcissism: an interview with myself!
  1. Favorite word: Reinvention
  2. Least favorite word(s): Religious Right
  3. Favorite number: 17
  4. Favorite swear word: Fuck
  5. Favorite flower: tulip
  6. Favorite song: Cuts You Up by Peter Murphy
  7. Blogger I wish I knew personally: Amy Karol, Angry Chicken
  8. Favorite sound: these days, silence
  9. Least favorite sound: smoke detectors
  10. Favorite color: black, no, magenta, no, ahhhhhhhhh........... (sorry, Monty Python reference). Umm, it depends.
  11. Favorite way to spend time: good friends, good food, good wine.
  12. Famous people, living or dead, that I’d like to have at a dinner party: Barack Obama, Gertrude Stein, Pablo Picasso, James Lipton, Alice Waters, Leo Lionni, the Dalai Lama, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert
  13. If I had taken a different path, career(s) I’d like to try: trial lawyer, chef, author, social butterfly
  14. Something you don’t know about me: After having Anna, I seriously considered becoming a lactation consultant. I am still looking to find the perfect opportunity to combine my strengths and skills with a way of supporting women, preferably globally.
  15. If heaven exists, what I would like god to say to me at the pearly gates: "Shall we play again?"
A big shout out to my buddy and photographer extraordinaire, Duncan Davidson. Thanks, Duncie!

Lactation consultant, huh? I didn't know that. I mean, I can totally see it now, but, that's something I totally didn't know about you.

Duncan: I am a woman of many mysteries! ;-)

Seriously, though, I have been trying to figure out a way to bring these skills of mine together, and I *may* have found something! I'll keep you posted.

Louci: Thanks! I owe it all to Duncan and his magic ways with lighting!
