Questions of the day

First of all, let me tell you where I'm blogging from right now--a high school computer lab, 1 1/2 hours from home, because I'm here for a Band audition today. I'm working in the tabulation room, putting scores into the computer, but we're in a lull in the action right now. Doesn't that sound exciting? ;)

Now, thanks to my sista, at House of Tafka, for the idea of answering the following questions........

1. If you could only visit 5 websites for the rest of eternity, which ones would you pick and why?

In no particular order, I guess...
My blog, natch
My 2 forums----one for PE survivors, and one for parents of ASD kids

2.What was your favorite childhood movie?

Hmm, that's tough. Young childhood, I don't really know.....but as I got older, I found my fave movie which is still #1 on my list--Gone With the Wind! Ok, ok, quit laughing. I'm a Southern girl, born and bred, how can Miss Scarlett NOT be at the top of my movies list?

3. What is one of your favorite memories of growing up?

We lived in Houston when I was in 5th and 6th grade, and I loved it there. Didn't want to move back to SC, truth be told. I had the best friend out there, who lived in my neighborhood, and we would ride bikes and roller skate all over the place. We'd also hang out at the community pool....I had the best tans of my life during those summers. We started out in Band together, her on clarinet and me on trumpet. It's amazing, looking back now, how "free" we were---able to just roam the neighborhood for hours on end, and no one worried because it was safe to do that back then. (and NO, I'm not really that old, LOL)

4. If you could vacation anywhere in the world and money wasn't an option, where would you go and why?

England, specifically London. I'm such a history nut, and there's so much to see and do around there. It's ok, stick on my dork label now, I understand.

5. List ten things you could not live without (just things, not people).

Here goes......sad, but true........again, not in order:

Diet Coke
music (both listening and performing)
computer (avec Internet, of course)
reading material (newsmagazines, fiction and non-fiction books)
sweet foods (I'd settle for some warm choc-chip cookies just out of the oven)
hair dryer (my hair isn't the kind to just air-dry, LOL)
MSNBC (especially Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow)
sleep ;)
Sirius's addicting
......having a hard time thinking of more without including people on the list, so I'll just say PIZZA as my last item, how about that?

My dad lived in London for a while and I always wished I could have gone there to visit, but alas I was only 12 and in school and therefore not allowed to go (and since my parents were divorced there was no way my mom was putting me on an international flight unattended)
