1. I was friends with everyone, but belonged to no particular group. The group I hung out with the most were the stoners and drinkers, even though I did not partake. I'm a "fringe dweller." That's the best description I have. While I had the book smarts to be a nerd, I did not immerse myself so totally that I was classified as a nerd, but I count many Nerds, Geeks, Cheerleaders, Sports Jocks and band Geeks as my friends.

2. Yes, I was in 4th or 5th grade, mom worked at Gibson's. We went in to pick her up at work once and I stole a pack of Diet Grape Gum. Mom's supervisor at the time was going to the police academy...he became Chief of Police later on and our 4-H leader.

Back to the gum, I was so afraid I would get caught with it that, laying in the top bunk of the bed, I opened all the gum and cehwed all of it, tossing the wrappers out the window. I had this huge wad of gum and no place to put it...I thought of throwing it out the window too, but I didn't want it to mess up the blades of the lawn mowers. And it would definitely not blow away like the wrappers.

I ended up putting the wad of (disgusting - 1960's diet flavors) in between the covers of a 3 ring binder until it got hard. I still have the binder, it still smells like Grape Gum and I can't stand anything Grape Flavored.

3. Skydiving...absolutely not, why would I jump out of a perfectly good airplane???

Quite a list actually:

Law and Order and all it's incarnations.
CSI
The Closer
NCIS and the LA one
Human Target
No Ordinary Family
Bones
Castle
The Mentalist
Caprica
If I could find it I would still be watching Buffy, Angel, Firefly (I have all on DVD) Anything by Joss Whedon.

National Geographic
Discovery
History
Science
Sci-Fi (I refuse to call it Sy-Fy)
Lots of Movies

I no longer watch medical shows...I spend too much time yelling, "No Way!" at the TV or laughing my butt off in disbelief at the antics.

I will try any Science-Fiction show, unfortunately, Shrek is not good about DVRing them for me and I missed the start of this season, I have to wait until it comes out on DVD or they do an encore season. I also like "Sanctuary" on Sci-Fi!

My work hour change really messed with the shows I was looking foward to seeing again.

Okay PF, I have a few for you.

1. How did you and Shrek meet?

2. What is your favourite "goto" dinner dish (what you make when you don't know what to make)

3. If you were "The Next Food Network Star" what would your Culinary Point of View be?

1. LOL! The very first time...a weirdo in the bar who danced like an idiot...more on that later.

I worked in a soup and sandwich place that also served beer and had early video games, think Pac-Man and real Pinball. We got our bread from a local grocery store and I had never met the bakers. You have to realize, Shrek tells this story differently and he's 15 years older than me, I was 20.

One afternoon, I'm in the shop alone when two guys, all in floury (dusty) white come in and order a beer a piece and get handfuls of quarters. I didn't think much, but the blue-eyed one was kinda cute and he had nice hands, strong looking.

They came in every day, seemed like they waited for the boss to leave. Much flirting, turns out they had a bet between them who would be able to go out with me first. I got to looking forward to Shrek showing up and we started meeting places. He drove, I walked or rode a bike. We never went anywhere together. (I should mention, I was a year divorced from a very abusive man, he was just divorced from his second wife, we didn't really trust the opposite sex.)

One day, I'm walking out of the laundry room in my building and he is coming out the door of his apartment...directly across the hall from my place. We had been semi-dating for about 5 months at this time and didn't know where each other lived...the rest is history!

2. I am a fan of Breakfast, wether it be hot cereal or a full blown egg, bacon/ham, potato, toast, juice and coffee breakfast.

3. "Culinary Point of View," not sure exactly what you are asking...I'm a family cook and am not afraid to ask guests, kids to help with prep. My ideal would be a central island with seating on the other side and lots of people I like/love laughing and chatting while I prepare good, homecooked food. I've said before, I'm not much on presentation and you are lucky if you get offered a plate...I do hand out utensils and you know where the fridge is. Help yourself...

This episode was probably about two months before we "met" in the sandwich shop. This older guy asked me to dance and I agreed. What a spaz!!! I felt like I was being throw all over and he about shook my arms off...never again.

About 4 months after we "met" we had the occasion to go out dancing. By then I was thoroughly smitten, just hadn't really decided what to do about it. So, aside from a few slow dances (necking sessions) we hadn't really danced together. Thirty seconds into that first dance, I realized I had captured the heart of "The Spaz."

We only slow dance...:)

I love your answers so far! You are such a cool person!

Ok, here are mine:

1. Who was your favorite teacher in school, and why?

2. If money were no object and you had a year to do anything at all you wanted, what would you do?

3. How do you want to be remembered when you are gone?
