So from time to time we've done this and it was brought up in the Welcome to F&G thread over a week ago.

So let do a little anonymous sharing.


So let's start off with just a couple questions to get things going.

1. When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?

2. Name a celebrity that you've met in your life?

3. 100 people surveyed top 6 answers on the board, name something odd that you might put on a sandwich.

4. If there was a party on NIK's lawn would you be brave enough to attend?

5. If you could try something new, what would you try?

I'm more of a lurker, but here's my answers.

1. When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?
A writer

2. Name a celebrity that you've met in your life?
DS and MH are probably the most famous people I've met. Seriously though.
(okay, I actually went to school with a fairly well known politician, but I'm not going to mention names here for numerous reasons.)

3. 100 people surveyed top 6 answers on the board, name something odd that you might put on a sandwich.
Potato chips

4. If there was a party on NIK's lawn would you be brave enough to attend?
I would just come in a Doctor Who costume - she wouldn't turn me away

5. If you could try something new, what would you try?
I stumped on this one! I can't think of anything I really want to try that I haven't already, or don't have plans for. I mean, I've got four continents under my belt with a fifth planned; I'm living overseas in my dream career; I did the whole marriage thing and am kind of over it; I've eaten more weird and delicious things than I can count; I take good care of myself and try new things frequently; I really am blessed, and so blissfully content these days.

I might have to cheat and peek at other people's answers before I answer this one.

ETA: I got one! Zumba! I want to try zumba!

Scuba diving. I've done it once before, but it was a lifetime ago. And it was in Iowa. In a swimming pool. I'm pretty sure that doesn't count.
