Great answers, Sammi! Great to learn more about you. Now, it's my turn (gulp)

1. What was the happiest period of your life and why?
2007, which was my year of heaven. It was the year I discovered Brokeback Mountain, my new friends, and gained a new purpose in life.
2. What was the saddest time?
I haven't really had a sad time. I guess it would have to be when my father died, in the early 1970s.

3. Who is your best friend?
My best friend is a gay man, who I feel a very deep and close connection with, as if we have been friends for several lifetimes. He is also my "travelling buddy" and we've been all over the country together.

4. Whatís something about you that not many people know?
People here on BetterMost know the most important things about me. It's people in my real life who don't know much about me!

A documentary filmmaker.

10. Who is your celebrity crush?
Honestly, I don't really care that much about celebrities.
11. What part of your body gives you the most trouble?
I would have to say, my tummy. It still wants to harbor a fetus.
12. Whatís one thing you want to do before you die?
There's quite a few things, but right now, I am fixated upon a mountain. A very very tall mountain.
13. Describe the best meal youíve ever had.
I was in an Enoteca in Tuscany, Italy. We were the only patrons. A five course meal was served. You had to be there!

You'll have to ask my friends

What mountain is in your future?  Is it Devil's Tower or something even bigger?  I've been sitting here thinking it's Everest.

You're thinking right, friend Della. I'm setting my sights for base camp in 2011, and may return again in 2014 when my friends are planning to summit!! No Everest summit for me unless I want to try for the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest woman to be crazy enuff to try to climb Everest. Me and the yaks will be camped out together at 20,000 ft in the sky!

OMG!!!  How thrilling!!!  I'm soooooooooo excited and envious for you.  Many pictures of you there will be taken and displayed here for our enjoyment.

What an adventure!  Heh, you could try to summit...a historical feat...

Will you take your laptop or something where you can file a travelogue or something similar for us to follow?
