On to Five Question Friday!
1. If you had $1,000 to donate to a charity, which would you choose?
I would give it to Standing on the Side of Love. The best description of the organization is from their website's About page: "Standing on the Side of Love is a public advocacy campaign that seeks to harness love’s power to stop oppression. It is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Association and all are welcomed to join." Those who know me well know that I believe strongly in equal rights for LGBT. I truly believe that I cannot consider myself "free" until everyone in our country shares the same rights that I do, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, or any other factor. Standing on the Side of Love advocates that stance and does a really great job, even though the organization is only just over a year old.
2. Snow days: Do you welcome them happily or are they a pain in your butt?
Snow days? In Florida? Yeah that doesn't happen. Though I have lived through a few hurricane days and those were a royal pain in my butt.
3. What talent did you wish you had and why?
I wish I could draw. I'm a fairly creative person, but my drawing skills are just not that great. I'm not at the level of only being able to draw stick figures, but I couldn't draw a portrait either.
4. Are you a news, politics or celebrity gossip junkie?
As I'm sure you guessed from the answer to the first question, I am a very left leaning liberal democrat and a complete political junkie. While most women I know watched baby shows or soaps or other more light-hearted things on maternity leave, I was glued -- literally, glued -- to MSNBC. If the TV was on, it was on MSNBC. And now that my kid is older, if I ever get a chance to watch TV, a lot of the times it's on MSNBC too. So yeah, I guess you could call me a political junkie.
5. What is your favorite "cocktail"? (Are you a beer person, a kiddie cocktail junkie, or perhaps your more the "Cosmo" kind?! Anything flies...doesn't hafta be alcoholic!)
I'm pretty boring and not much of an alcohol drinker, though when I do drink, it's either vodka and cranberry juice or white wine. I used to love red wine but I started to get red wine headaches so I just don't anymore. Red wine is tasty, and healthy in small portions but not worth the skull-crushing pain.
