1. If you could have any superpower, what would you have? Why?
I would have super-suck power. That way I could wave that wand thing in my hand and all the cat and dog hair (see #7 below) covering my clothes, the furniture, the floor, the car seats would magically be sucked into a giant wad and maybe I could knit socks or something if I spun the whole mess into yarn first.
Oh, wait. I live in the South now. Don’t wear socks.
Actually, I’d like to be able to fly.
2. Who is your style icon?
Lady Gaga, of course. I’d like to see what she could do with a pair of Birkenstock sandals, shorts and a T-shirt, my current uniform.
3. What is your favorite quote?
Not exactly a quote, but I’ve had this cartoon taped to the bottom of my computer screen for years now:
4. What is the best compliment you’ve ever received?
My son wrote me a letter this Mother’s Day that said “You’re my best influence and my biggest hero.” Whatta guy.
5. What playlist/cd is in your CD player/iPod right now?
Eva Cassidy singing Somewhere over the Rainbow, Patterson Hood singing Depression Era, Wendy (my niece!) & Mikey singing Hellstomper mixes, and a podcast on Relationship Development Intervention for autism treatment.
6. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
Most definitely a morning person. I love the light in the morning and being part of that big cosmic rebirth-y thing with the birds and the sunrise and the dew. The coffee’s better when it’s fresh-brewed, too.
7. Do you prefer dogs or cats?
Oy. They’re both hanging around, Polly and Lola, waiting to see what I’ll type. It’s not a preference – it’s a lifestyle thang, and I have to have at least one of each – dogs and cats, that is. Next time, though, I’m getting pets with transparent fur (see #1 above).
8. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
I grew up reading and living Nancy Drew. Nancy Drew Too’s been my moniker and alternate persona for years now. I’m always searching for clues. Clues for what? I dunno. Sometimes that’s a mystery, too.
I think most of my regular blogging cadre have taken part in this eight-step dance now, but Merrilee? Want to get started with the Southern hemisphere? You don’t have enough already on your plate. 🙂 And I’d love to see what you write.
