    So many to comment on:
    –I was born in Ann Arbor! We moved away when I was 6 weeks old, but I have been back once
    –I would love to go to South Africa
    –Nice to hear of another Obama supporter and someone who is politically active
    –Ballet? I am currently reading Russian Winter which has a ballerina as its main character

    I also would read the Thursday Next books over and over again. Did you know there is a new one out? I am dying to read it!

      I have 20 pages left in it. It’s very different from the other ones. Not sure how I feel about it.

    I think this is a super-fun meme.

    Picture of you in a poodle skirt? I’m looking for something light and fun to read this weekend. I think you just might have convinced me!

    You’ve had some interesting jobs!


  6. Michelle April 23, 2011 / 8:29 am

    I see some similarities in your answers to how I’d reply. Think I’ll jump on over to Tumblr and get my meme on!

    Wow, you’ve been a lot of places! I’m jealous of your traveling prowess 🙂

    And yay for supporting Obama! What a cool job!

    All your four jobs are fascinating! And the four places you have been to – so exotic! I liked the description of your favourite food – ‘Breakfast for dinner’ 🙂

    South Africa is def on my list of places to visit. I’m with you on all 4 of your books/series to read over and over (also on the good beer). I think I’m going to have to read Anna and the French Kiss, I’ve seen it recommended too many times to pass it by.
