Sunday Answers

This one from Sunday Stealing...

1. If you could say anything you wanted to say to George Bush, what would you say?

2. If you had to be the mother of Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan, who would you choose and why?
Probably not either, but I think Brit-Brit...I think she just wants someone to notice here and is crying for help, whereas Lohan is a total egoist.

3. You get to be Queen for a day. The kids are all taken care of, and you can spend as much money as you want. What do you do all day?
I think I would go to the gym and hire a trainer for a day, to walk me through all sorts of exercises I could do from the next day forward. Ditto a personal chef. Then I would probably go buy a baseball team so I could manage them, thus ensuring an income for some time after my Queendom is over. And maybe I would treat Luca to a groomer...but he may hate that.

4. Is there a song that brings tears to your eyes every time you hear it? If so, which one?
The Luckiest by Ben Folds. That song makes me cry like a baby. "Now I know all the wrong turns, the stumbles and falls, have brought me here..."

5. A fairy taps you on the shoulder and tells you that you can either have a perfect face or a perfect body for the rest of your life. Which do you choose?
I would wonder what that means, exactly. What is a perfect face? Would the perfect body be the perfect body for me/my type, or would I look unhealthy? Neither seem like a good option.

6. If you could live any place in the world and money was no object, where would you live and why?
I don't think money should stop any of us from moving where we want to be. I see myself living back in Spain someday. Timing just has to be right.

7. What is your biggest regret in life?
This sounds trite, but I try not to have regrets...especially given some things that happened this last summer, I try to be a doer, and not look back and wonder why I didn't do something. That said...I wish I would have stayed in college a little longer, and stayed in Sevilla a little longer, too. But, had I stayed in school longer, I wouldn't have had the same experience I had in Sevilla, and had I stayed in Sevilla longer, I wouldn't have had some fantastic travel experiences. So, it all works out in the end, methinks.

8. If you could go back and visit one person in your life who is now dead, and ask one question, what would that question be and why would you ask it?
Often times I wish I would have asked my grammie for her green bean recipe. More and more lately I have been craving those. But, in general, I just would have asked all my now-passed grandparents many more questions.

9. If you had the choice to age forward (like we are now) or aging backwards (think Benjamin Buttons) which would you choose and why?
Forward. I don't really have much of a desire to go back to my youth. It was a terribly awkward, and just generally not so great, time.

10. What will the epitaph on your headstone say?
I like a quote by Michael Landon, "Remember me with smiles and laughter, for that is how I will remember you." But, realistically, I am not the most smiley/laughy person, I am much more serious and "dark & twisty." So I would just like it to read, "Loving daughter, wife, mother, and friend." Hopefully all of that will be true by the end of my time.
