Pumpkin’s meme from Carpe Diem-Sieze the Day

2. How old are you? I could say “old enough to no better” actually just turned 58.

7. What are your hobbies? Reading, computers, photography, baking, knitting.
8. What is your favorite ice cream? Chocolate, I didn’t know there was another kind.
9. What is your favorite animal? Cats. I like dogs too, but cats use litter boxes and they don't have to be walked. That comes in very handy this time of year.

15. What teacher do you remember most from your childhood? That’s a toughie. I was lucky, and had a lot of good teachers. Probably Mr. Egink. He was my eighth grade science teacher. Good teacher but he was very tall and had a very deep voice. And he had us all well and truly buffaloed for about the first week. That’s when we discovered he was really a big teddy bear.
16. What are your pets and their names? Three cats. Lucky, Misty and Bandit.
17. What is your favorite food? See the entry about ice cream. Anything as long as it’s chocolate.
