1. If you could compete in one Olympic event (not necessarily winter sports) what would it be?
As long as ability doesn't necessarily need to play in the equation, and in light of the fact that this happens to be the sport I watched today, I could see me loving the women's snowboarding. I mean, that is if I was that young, athletically trained competitor that saw snow more than 10 times in her whole life.
2. Do remember a specific Olympic moment from the past?
3. Have you ever known anyone who competed in the Olympics?
Yes! In the women's ministry, WOVEN, of which I am a part, we had a guest speaker at our very first conference in Fort Worth, Texas. Her name was Kim Macklin, and she was a competitive swimmer on the 1984 Olympic swim team. Her story was awesome, because she spoke of our identity in Christ as women and as believers. Her point to drive home was that even having your picture on the front of a Wheaties box can't give you the identity our hearts long for. It was a touching story.
4. If everyday activities were Olympic-worthy, which activity would you have a gold medal in?
I would have to say...couponing! I saved over $112 two weeks ago!
5. Do you know anything about your ethnic heritage?
Yeah, this IS random...I just know that my mom's maternal side came from Sicily, and her paternal from Germany. I think all of my dad's family came from a part of Czechoslovakia that used to be known as Bohemia. Well, I think it's still referred to as Bohemia within the Czech Republic...or...
Well, you asked if I knew ANYTHING. That was SOMEthing.
6. Do you enjoy sleeping late?
I enjoy it while I'm in my warm flannel sheets and the house is a cool 65 degrees. But then I don't enjoy after I get up and I feel like my day is already half over before I start the coffee. I'd rather be up early...as long as I'm not up too late at night. Like now.
7. Have you ever performed CPR on anyone? Do you know how? (Yes, that's two, I know. Whatevs.)
I have never performed CPR because I don't know how to. That's also something I don't think I've ever had to admit "out loud." I don't like it.
8. Name one country you'd like to visit and explain why.
Are you kidding? Just ONE? I would have to say Israel. God has given me a love for His people, and I want to go there and get to know them some day.
9. Have you ever fixed up a couple romantically?
I called and asked my now-husband to meet me half-way between our towns (which was still a two-hour drive!) for our first date. That counts, right?
10. What is the last book you read?
The last one I actually finished: The Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens.
The last one I actually picked up to read: Way too many to list here.
Lidna, I hope you're reading this, because I have the most extreme respect for you right now. I don't know how you've come up with all these questions for us...I can't think of ONE that you haven't already asked!
12. What is your favorite meal at your favorite restaurant?
If you've read any recent posts lately (like in the last several months) you already know that we are currently engaged in the Dave Ramsey program. We don't eat out much these days, so I almost can't remember!
But the last thing I ate out was pretty stinkin' good, so I'll put that. And before you think you're going to call the Dave Ramsey Police on me, DH got money for his birthday, so he took me on a date. How cool is that?
So we went to this Cuban-Style Mexican restaurant named La Parrilla, and I had a killer fish taco plate. It was REALLY good. New fave.
And it looked just like that, too.
Now, grab ya a second cup, and head on over to Lidna's to see what everyone else is saying. Go ahead...it's fun!
