Mrs Voisine.

4. What was the last thing you watched on tv?
the Today show while i got ready for work this morning.

5. My uncle once:
had a huge family gathering at his home one Summer. i remember being there all day & late into the evening. the kids dragged a bunch of lawn chairs together & made a fort. we laid beneath it, in the grass, and watching big people cha, fireflies flicker, and fireworks set off by older cousins, lighting up the sky.

6. How long was your longest relationship?
six years. twice. i am starting to think i expire after six years now...

that we would stop feeling the need to tell everyone how to live their lives, what to think and feel and believe, and then act all wounded & offended when someone doesn't agree with us.

10. Would you prefer 10 inches of snow or 100 degree weather?
you know? it really doesn't matter, because either way, i am inside a climate-controlled environment. the snow is prettier to look at, but i don't have to shovel 100-degrees. i guess i'll go with the snow, since now it's a novelty.

"it's not what you take when you leave this world behind you, it's what you leave behind you when you go."
