(Link in meme-roll)
Anyday Meme

1. What is your dream career, and what path do you plan to take to get there?
I'm in it, and I take the same path to it every morning. Unless I detour past McD's for a large diet Coke.
2. Who do you aspire most to be like?
Do I sound like a lunatic if my answer is "Jesus"?
3. What do you like in a best friend?
Someone who likes me, who has a sense of humor and a sense of boundaries.
4. Do you currently have any squishes (people you really want to be best friends with)?
There are some people I'd like to get to know better, but as much as I like the concept of 'squishes' I don't think I have any right now.
5. What is your ideal platonic relationship?
Hanging out laughing, doing nothing much, talking about books and people and Important Things.
6. Best late night IM/phone conversation story.
I don't really do late-night stuff--too busy sleeping. Unless you count the call I made to neighbors last month at 3 a.m. because my house was flooding and Beast was bleeding.
7. List one person you’d like to wear the sweater of, one person you’d like to bake cookies with, and one person you’d like to drive around and get lost with. (can be celebrities or fictional characters, has to be three different people and not all the same person)
I would love to still have one of my dad's sweaters, unwashed, that smelled of him. I'll bake cookies--or just eat cookie dough!!--with Amy and/or Jenny. Getting lost would be fun on my own, or with Sparky if I'm feeling mean--he HATES being lost!
8. Describe your current best friend(s).
If you do a search on the blog for "best friends" you'll find many descriptions of them. I'm rather fiercely loyal to my besties; the list hasn't changed.

Does "Grandma" count?

I'd like to go whenever it meant that I'd have a) absolutely equal rights with men, and b) meds that would make my dog allergies moot.

I think Jennifer Garner would be fun to hang out with.
14. What fictional character would you love to have as your best friend and why?
Laura Ingalls and I are already best buds.

A rescue flare.
17. If you could pick one career other than the one you are pursuing/plan to pursue, what would it be?
Professional sleeper.

[and with that answer, I keeled over on the sofa and slept for an hour]
18. What is your best memory you have with a friend?
Awkward-wording much? I have a lot of great friend memories. Let's go with my best friend in junior high/high school walking to my house after school one day and rolling around in hysterics shouting my middle name. ... I have no idea.
19. Do you have any peculiar interests that most people don’t know about?
I love reading about early church history, the history of the era of Jesus, and how Christianity got started.
20. What were your favorite childhood toys? Do you still have them?
I have one little stuffed pink mouse from my childhood, and my Raggedy Anne doll. Neither is in good shape. RI shouldn't be doused in perfume, for one thing.

Oh, no, I'm not playing favorites here! I love them all.

There would be giggling. That's all I'm saying.

I would like to see Egypt before I die.
25. Are there any friends you miss having around?
All of them.
