1. Political show - I used to love the Daily Show. Okay, I still love the Daily Show but The Colbert Report has totally grown on me.

2. Picnic food - Fruit. The first time we get our hands on fresh strawberries and blueberries? Yum.

3. Mixed drink - In a bar? Margarita. At home? Grape vodka & lemonade or Stoli vanilla & diet coke.

4. U.S. President - John Adams.

5. Kind of student to teach - Egads. Jen had the perfect answer. None. I have zero patience for teaching anyone anything.

6. Hobby you do or wish you still did - I read and do some embroidery. I wish I could knit better than I do, but I struggle with mistakes...when I make them I can't fix them and I get frustrated waiting for help.

7. Sports commentator - Don & Remy are definitely number one. Then there's Al Michaels and I'm partial to Gil Santos too.

8. Sport to watch on TV - You must mean sports, as in plural. I love a good football game or baseball game. I'll be honest though, I only watch baseball if the Sox are playing and I only watch basketball occasionally. These days? Hockey is winning out. Bruins hockey to be exact. After watching my son's game go from skittish first steps and puck chasing to smooth crossovers and quick wrist shots it's a joy to sit down and watch a game with him.

9. Animal to have as a pet - A dog. *sigh* We're not ready to jump back into pet ownership yet. We dogsat a few weeks ago for my sister in law and it was great having a dog around. Except that the dog we watched was a seven year old, well behaved golden retriever and not a lunatic labrador puppy or a super cute french bulldog that maybe your husband doesn't really want.

10. Halloween costume you have worn - A fisherman.

11. Kind of dessert - Pumpkin pie with whipped cream.

12. Comic strip - The Far Side.

13. Style or make of footwear - Summer? Flip flops and slip on sneakers. Winter? Clogs and regular sneakers.

14. Ice cream flavor - Chocolate peanut butter cup. I"m keeping this one, Jen.

15. College or university president - Um, I'm neither.

16. Internet news source - Sadly, comcast.net. It's my home page.

17. Vacation spot - The beach. Thankfully, they're close by.

18. Wine - No thanks, instant headache. Plus I just can't get over the fact that it doesn't TASTE good.

19. Way to waste time instead of working - Interneting.

20. Student excuse for late work - I can't even remember.

21. Reality show - At this point, it's pretty much down to watching Survivor OnDemand. Oh. And this one probably doesn't count because it's hardly reality but I'm throwing it in here anyway...The Hills. Believe me, I KNOW how bad it is. But I cannot stop. And sometimes the Bachelor(ette) shows too. If I remember they're on.

22. Jewelry on a man - I really like gold chains and link braclets. Oh and those magnet, Q-Ray bracelets are pretty awesome too. ACK! Puh-leeze. A wedding band and maybe a watch.

23. Pizza topping - Sausage & mushroom or pepper & onion.

24. Children’s movie - Hmmm, I'd probably have to say Mary Poppins.

25. Celebrity you wish would retire - I wouldn't mind never seeing Jim Carrey in a comedy again. I'm not a huge fan of Denzel Washington or Julia Roberts either.

That's all I've got. Consider yourself tagged if you'd like.

Ooh, sausage and mushroom is a good combo. I hadn't thought of that.

I love "The Far Side" too. That guy was brilliant.

Can I play in your yard? ;-)

1. Political show - It's on at a really bad time, but I've started watching Huckabee. He's just such a nice and logical person.

2. Picnic food - Is it legal to have a picnic without potato salad?

3. Mixed drink - Any girly martini will do. Or a gimlet with Belvedere vodka.

4. U.S. President - Toss up between Teddy Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan.

5. Kind of student to teach - It's not so much about the student as it is about my mood. :-P

6. Hobby you do or wish you still did - I used to scrapbook but have really moved more into cardmaking. But even that has slacked off a bit recently. I'd better find some mojo fast... Christmas is coming!

7. Sports commentator - Amen to Don and Remy. When they start laughing... oh man.

8. Sport to watch on TV - Is there another sport besides baseball?

9. Animal to have as a pet - We currently have two cats and we love them to death. They are very affectionate. We'd love to have a dog as well, but we don't think it's fair to have a dog if they don't have a backyard to run around in.

10. Halloween costume you have worn - A flapper, a ghostly victorian lady.

11. Kind of dessert - Any kind is good!

12. Comic strip - I'm with you: The Far Side. Their medical jokes are hilarious. It's funny cuz it's true.

13. Style or make of footwear - Anything with a little lift. Even my sandals and flip flops. Need the height to give the illusion of thin calves.

15. College or university president - I don't even know who the president was when I went to school.

20. Student excuse for late work - Sick.

21. Reality show - No more. Please.

22. Jewelry on a man - Wedding band if applicable, maybe a right handed college ring. Watch. That's IT.

23. Pizza topping - Goat cheese! (Is that typically CA?)

24. Children’s movie - Finding Nemo
