Hello everyone!

This is a survey I've posted on the DC Forum some time ago, and got good responce to it.  So I figured, cut-n-paste, and now it's here.

1) Your name: Katherine

2) Age: 49

3) Zodiac: Libra

4) Siblings: one younger brother

5) favorite author: Where to start? Emily Bronte? John Updike? David Sedaris?

6) Fav. type of music: Lots, but maybe most reliably alt-rock (if I understand the term).

7) scariest thing i've ever done: Let's see ... Hitchhiked home alone at 2 a.m. on several occasions. Picked up any number of lone male hitchhikers, including one who told me he'd just gotten out of jail for assault -- and then said yes when he asked me out. Went to party with a group of four or five guys passing through town, the only woman in their room at the Holiday Inn. Smoked a joint behind the trailers at a carnival with a 250-pound carny I'd just met. I never got the least bit hurt, but sometimes I wonder how I survived my late teens and early 20s!!!

14) Are you ticklish? Where? Yes, when I'm nervous. Never you mind where.

15) Do I like to cook/bake. Theoretically yes, but on a nightly basis it gets tiresome, especially trying to please the mutually exclusive tastes of four people.

16) Fav. current song: Anything from Soul Asylum's "Silver Lining" album.

17) Fav. song.. oldie: Wow, way too many to narrow down.

18) Dream in B/W or color: Color

19) More friends now or then: Now!

20) purpopsely embarrased someone: No, I'd feel too sorry for them.
