Respond and Rework

I got this from Kandice Seeber, who got it from the BeadedLily’s Sketchbook blog — sounds like a fun meme!


Respond and rework. Answer the questions on your own blog; replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention; add one more question of your own.


What is your current obsession?
Once I finish up my grades, I’ll get back to working on borosilicate glass leaf pendants, trying to work out some nice shapes & colors.

Which item from your closet are you wearing most lately?
Jeans, jeans, and more jeans, with the occasional cargo pants thrown in there.

What was the last thing you bought?
A couple of magazines this afternoon during our regular Saturday trip to Borders.

What are you listening to right now?
Nothing except the ambient noise around here. Sometimes silence is the best!

What are you reading?
Anna Quindlen’s Rise and Shine

What 4 words would you use to describe yourself?
Introverted, creative, sardonic, strong-willed

What is your current guilty pleasure?
I don’t really have guilty pleasures, but maybe it’s reading “chick-lit” and romance novels.

What would you do if the internet was irreparably damaged and you had to find another way to connect?
I would like to think I’d write letters, but I’d probably just stay unconnected. I’m not a phone person so that’s out.

Where would you go if you could travel anywhere right now?
Probably New Zealand, since that’s the place I most want to visit.

If you could grant someone else one wish, what would it be?
I’d give my father a cure for his heart disease and pulmonary fibrosis.

What flower are you most anxious to see bloom this spring?
Actually, I’ll be just as happy when everything quits blooming since the pollen has made me utterly miserable this spring.

What are you most happy doing?
Hanging out with my husband, or melting glass, or both together.

Care to share some wisdom?
Two things:

  1. Life’s not fair, so get over it.
  2. If you’re in a hole, stop digging.

If I walked into your work space today what would you want to show me? What would you want to hide?
I’d want to turn on my torch and show you how I make my beads and pendants. I wouldn’t really want to hide anything in the workspace, but I might close some of the other doors in the house!

What makes you laugh out loud?
The ICanHasCheezburger and IHasAHotDog websites. They also make me go “Awwwww!”

How many pets do you have, and what kind?
Three cats, plus the 80 or so I work with as a Good Mews volunteer.
