favorites?

Ok here goes:
Cartoon:  Spongebob – in small doses
Movie: Room With a View (but also i love 16 Candles).
Book: Uhhhh…I read pretty silly books.  Anything by Nora Roberts… I know, not so intellectual.  There is one book I love to read over and over, The Shell Seekers. I wouldn’t say i have a FAVORITE book. I loved the Susan Cooper series “the dark is rising” as a kid…
Artist: April Gornik – she does these amazing huge landscapes that are so surreal and beautiful. Also i love Richard Diebenkorn.
music/song…I love Sade – saw her in concert outdoors years ago – there was heat lightning in the background…very memorable show.
First Concert: UB40 with my friend Heather.
Dessert – Rhubarb pie a la mode
Cereal – I actually eat eggs pretty much everyday for breakfast, not cereal.
Fruit – MANGO
Drink – water or Red wine
Soap – any that smells good
Sunglasses – just got a pair of Costa shades. loving them. I lose sunglasses regularly though
sport/team. Kansas Jayhawks are my team, ultimate frisbee is favorite sport to play (that’s how i met my husband!)
Animal – mermaids
city/place: Still looking – i love to travel. I do love Kansas. Open spaces speak to me.
Coffee
Tool i can’t live without: Swiss Army Knife
