And so it begins...

Me: What are you up to in there?
3 year old: Um...good?
Me: I believe the phrase is 'no good.' Nice try though.

Fun Things to Do While on a Conference Call*

*But for me, "Fun Things to Do While Drinking Coffee and Having a Break Between Tasks"...lord knows I don't need anymore spaciness while on the phone.

Anne tagged me for this, and I aim to please. And I really like the idea of a quick break in an otherwise hectic day, so it's an easy sell.

Three Names You Go By
1. Rachel
2. Rach (or as Albert liked to spell it phonetically "Raytch")
3. Ellie

Three Parts of Your Heritage

2. German (SO MANY Germans)
3. Um...probably some English in there too, we'll go with that

Three Things That Scare You
1. Large rats (several hang around my workplace...shudder)
2. Heights (specifically those in which there is the slightest possibility I might fall off)

Three Things You Want in a Relationship (other than Real Love...
was the "Real Love" Anne's addition or in the original?...also, how dorky do I feel answering this one?)
1. Lots of laughing
2. Ability to be myself
3. Terrible, terrible poetry written in my honor (a song would work too, preferably on acoustic guitar, bringing us right back to #1).

Two Truths and a Lie
1. I have never been to Disney World.
2. I can scarf raw oysters by the plate load.
3. I really enjoy sappy love poems.

Things about the Opposite Sex that Appeal to You (again with the dorky teenage angst prompts...)

Three people I would like to see take this quiz

3. Stephanie (you haven't updated in a while...good excuse!)
