Back again for Cee’s lovely “Get-to-know-you” challenge!
In your native language which letter or character describes you best?  Why? I think it would be brackets. You know, those little “hooks” that set off phrases or clauses. 
According to the site,, brackets are defined as follows:

Brackets (   ) Brackets always come in pairs (  ) and are used to make an aside, or a point which is not part of the main flow of a sentence.  If you remove the words between the brackets, the sentence should still make sense.

While I don’t come as a pair (well, technically, I guess I do since I’m married, but I’m not sure David would want to be volunteered).  However, I frequently make “asides,” and the majority of the time, they are not part of the main flow of the sentence.  Should you remove my little “asides,” the sentences being spoken by others would most likely still make sense.

The above paragraph is a great example of one of my little snarks.

What is your greatest extravagance?


Sister-cousins Patti and Christa and my sister, Jenny.

Vacationing with our family.  It’s priceless to me – worth every dime and every moment.

Do you prefer exercising your mind or your body? How frequently do you do either?

Both.  I am studying Spanish, guitar and digital marketing right now (as hobbies) although I never have enough time to really study/practice.  I love barre classes, but I haven’t taken one in about two months.  Hoping desperately for some down time in December.

List at least 5 things that makes you laugh.

My fur kids

Pictures of my friend Amy’s kitten, Mr. Butters.  He’s a ball of fuzz with bright blue eyes and a perpetual look of surprise.

Sir Terry Pratchett’s books, especially the Tiffany Aching series (Wee Free Men)

Christopher Moore’s “Lamb, The Gospel according to Christ’s Best Friend, Biff”


My Daddy.  He’s a funny guy.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m grateful for the wonderful gathering of friends we had on Sunday and I’m looking forward to a wonderful gathering with family on Thursday!


Thanks, Cee, for such a fun challenge this week!
