Cuddling in bed in bed with my kids on a cold winter day around Christmas time many many years ago, and my youngest who was around four said, "mommy, I smell the smells of Christmas".

Probably the times my bffs and I crashed together (um, every weekend ) when I was living in asia.

Favorite Class ever?
probably the theology class I took in undergrad that focused on the book of Exodus.

It would be somewhere that is most accessible and affordable for the greatest amount of people because it's not WHERE you are, but who you're there with.

relaxing and being present in the moment

What is your best memory to date?
I keep coming back to this one and changing my answer. In my life? The first time I held each of my kids is a given. From my time on SI? It's a three-way tie between the g2gs, being asked to be a Guide, and my "victory" photo op on the courthouse steps.

Favorite Class ever?
Composition for the College Bound, my senior year in high school. The teacher - Mrs. Campbell - recognized my love for writing, encouraged and inspired me, and built my confidence at a time I was sorely lacking it.

Would you rather be whitewater rafting, swimming or tanning?
Rafting. Or sitting in the shade with an umbrella drink, watching the rafters.

Avocado lover or Parrothead or both?
Definite avocado lover. Not a full-blown Parrothead, but I do appreciate Jimmy Buffett in moderation.

What would you do for a Klondike bar?
Go to the store and buy it.

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop?
The owl is wise, so I must accept his answer - three.

Where would you pick as the ultimate location for an SI get together (AKA g2g)?
Oooh... as long as there's good food and drink, anywhere SIers gather could be a great g2g. But if I'm dreaming big? Give me a tropical location - Caribbean, Hawaii, Fiji, Bali...

What would be a good question to ask when we do this again?
What's your major?

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop?
There was a time when every third grader at Central School in Lake Bluff, Illinois knew the answer to this question, because it was actually part of the math curriculum. Alas, it's been a long time since I had a third grader at Central School in Lake Bluff, IL. I do recall that it took LOTS more licks than expected, and that the kids' tongues got VERY sore. They took the assignment very seriously, and few cheated.
