G'mornin', Karla & friends! Got a moment while I finish my coffee, so I'll stop and play for a bit.

Today's Question(s):

Other than getting married or having kids,
is there a decision or change you made, that had you not done this, your life would be very different?


Oh, my. There are probably lots of them, but I think the biggest one was moving to a different state in 1981. It really took me out of my comfort zone, and I never developed a liking for the other state, despite living there for 18 years, but I learned an enormous amount, established myself in my profession, and I have a much broader experience with and respect for cultural diversity than I would have at this point had I stayed in the Midwest all my life.

Bonus Question:

Things that had you saying
"Wow how did I miss out on this!!! "
1.
A theater company that started up in our city a couple of years ago. We missed their first season, and I still regret it.
2. The fun of having two cats. We adopted our second tuxedo boy a couple of weeks ago, and it has been a non-stop riot watching the two cats play, chase each other, wrassle, snuggle and purr.
3. Get more than five hours of sleep a night. Well, to be honest, I'm still waiting to find out what this one is like.


Extra Credit Question:

When you sign your name is it
Easy to read?
I think my first name is relatively easy to read in my signature.
or
More like a bunch of squiggles?
My last name, however, generally turns into a recognizable first letter followed by a slightly hiccupy-looking line and a curl at the end.


Just for Fun:

Are you a Sushi Fan?


Love it!

Favorite type of Sushi?

You know, I like all of it. I'm particularly fond of high-grade tuna sashimi, but I've never found any kind I don't like. We had a pickled baby octopus salad the last time we went out for sushi that was just incredibly good.

Probably hundreds of decisions, large and small. You never know what might have happened (or not happened) if you'd caught a different plane, dined at a different restaurant, moved to a different house, taken a different job etc. etc. The main answer I can give is migrating to Australia from England just before I turned 21.


Bonus Question:


Things that had you saying
"Wow how did I miss out on this !!! "
1.
I honestly don't feel like I've missed out on anything that I've had any control of (ie I missed out on having a close family of origin... but not much I could do about that and can't change it)
2.
3.


Extra Credit Question:

When you sign your name is it
Easy to read ?
It's easy enough to read if you know what my surname is. But not if you don't (Unusual surname)
or
More like a bunch of squiggles ?


Just for Fun:

Are you a Sushi Fan ?
On yes - love it!

Favorite type of Sushi ?
Prawn and avocado - but I like all sushi except that which contains tofu.

Happy Tuesday!
