    What do you like to do in your spare time?

    Read and research

    What do you do when you want to treat yourself well?

    Nice meal, see a movie, go for a walk

    How did you decide to live where you do?

    I married my British husband, came to Britain, and chose Bollington. Got a job here, which cemented it.

    What lifestyle would you like to have?

    A slow, deliberate, quiet one engrossed in a community.

    What are you the most curious about?

    Why we are so frail.

    If you had to choose, which could you live without: TV, the internet, a telephone or friends

    Telephone

    What is your favorite holiday and why?

    Halloween because of the playfulness, and Thanksgiving because of there really is no other reason for getting together than getting together with the people you love.

    How do you usually celebrate your birthday?

    A nice dinner, possibly a movie.

    What is the strangest food you ever ate?

    ~At a traditional Chinese restaurant… I don’t know what it was, and I don’t want to.

    Choose a unique item in your wallet and tell why you carry it around.

    I carry around my marriage license, because you never know when I have to prove my identity and reason for being in the UK. Seriously.

    What is the first thing you notice about people?

    Their mood

    You have won a prize. The prize has two options, and you can choose either (but not both). The first option is a year in Europe with a monthly stipend of $2,000. The second option is ten minutes on the moon.

    I already live in Europe and make more a month! So, 10 minutes on the moon sound great… Not sure I’d want to be on the moon for longer than that.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?

    Hm. Sleep, read, spend time with loved ones, daydream about travel.

    What do you do when you want to treat yourself well?

    Take an evening off. Have a good meal. Have a pedicure.

    How did you decide to live where you do?

    Alas, I followed the winds of fortune for residency.

    What lifestyle would you like to have?

    Some work clinically, maybe some consulting on the side; a simple life near loved ones, plenty of time to read, play outside, explore my spirituality, travel, study all the things that interest me, be in an orchestra and choir, get better at yoga, have a dog.

    What are you the most curious about?

    Hm. Not sure. I’m curious about the experience of God.

    If you had to choose, which could you live without: TV, the internet, a telephone or friends

    I agree, definitely TV (don’t have one now either.)

    What is your favorite holiday and why?

    I love the time around Thanksgiving and Christmas because in the past it’s been very family oriented and loving.

    How do you usually celebrate your birthday?

    Lately? Working a shift. 🙂

    What is the strangest food you ever ate?

    Some weird (but no doubt lovingly made) soup in Honduras that was made of hot water and some animal hoof.

    Choose a unique item in your wallet and tell why you carry it around.

    A miniature copy of my med school diploma so that if something ever happens to my diploma I will have documentation of all my hard work dagnabbit!

    I’ve got that too, Ladylord!

    What is the first thing you notice about people?

    Their facial expression, I guess. (Lately it’s been “sick or not sick.” 😉 )

    You have won a prize. The prize has two options, and you can choose either (but not both). The first option is a year in Europe with a monthly stipend of $2,000. The second option is ten minutes on the moon.

    Again, I agree–definitely the year in Europe.
