Then Alabama.<br><br><br><br><b>Dietary Path/Reason Why:</b> Struggling vegetarian and aspiring vegan. Health. Mine, the animals and the planet. I believe it is all connected.<br><br><br><br><b>Favorite food(s):</b> Tofu! So versitile. I also love avocados, quinoa, broccoli, green beans and carrots (not necessarily all together).<br><br><br><br><b>Brief Intro:</b> I'm a struggling vegetarian (too easy to slip into the bad old habits of a lifetime). I'm a Catholic, home schooling mom. And I'm weird. Very weird. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

<b>Have you lived anywhere else other than Florida?</b> Yes. Michigan, Virginia, Illinois and Missouri.<br><br><br><br><b>What's the worst experience you have had with hurricanes?</b> Home owners' insurance rate increases! I don't live in an area that floods or a costal area. So we don't usually get hit very hard. But our insurance rates increase just like those who do live in more suceptible areas.<br><br><br><br><b>What's the scariest wildlife experience you've had, if any (i.e. alligators?)</b> Walking down to a pond and being hissed at by a really big alligator. Finding a black widow spider in my garage on the handle of the trash can that I was reaching for! I'm terrified of spiders.<br><br><br><br><b>Can you tell us a little about what homeschooling is like?</b> Challenging and a lot of hard work. To make sure that I'm teaching what needs to be taught and that I'm teaching it well is a constant challenge. But it is also rewarding in many ways.

An emerald cut emerald.<br><br><br><br><b>When you're at home: Shoes, sandals, or barefoot?</b> Barefoot indoors and sneakers out of doors.<br><br><br><br><b>Have you ever traveled outside of the U.S.? If so, would you like to go back? Is there any place you haven't been that you'd like to travel to?</b> I've been to Canada and Costa Rica. I'd like to go back to both.

<b>What was the last book you read? Would you recommend it?</b> Morrigan's Cross by Nora Roberts. It's okay. Pure fluff but reasonably entertaining. We're packing to move right now so I'm trying not to get into anything really heavy.<br><br><br><br><b>What's your favourite book?</b> Tough one. I read constantly so it's hard to pick a favourite. But I'd have to say on my list of favourites are:<br><br><br><br>
Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck<br><br>
The Old Man and the Sea, Ernest Hemmingway<br><br>
All Quiet on the Western Front, Erich Marie Remarque<br><br>
Gone With the Wind, Margaret Mitchell<br><br>
Outlander, Diana Gabaldon (fluff but entertaining fluff)

<b>What do you do when you see a spider?</b> Scream! Then hope it goes away. I'm so afraid of them that I won't even kill them. Besides, no matter how scary they are they are useful and necessary.<br><br><br><br><b>What was your favourite book from your childhood?</b> Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shell Silversteen and Charlotte's Web by E.B. White<br><br><br><br><b>Can you sew?</b> Well enough to hem pants and make minor repairs but I'm not up to doing anything major.

<b>Where are you?</b> Sorry for the delay. My weekend was spent with boxes, rolls of packing tape and several really large garbage bags! I forgot to check in.

<b>If a movie, what actress would best play you (and why)?</b> Uh ... tough one. Maybe Camryn Manheim (because she is one of the few actresses who is non-thin enough to be me).<br><br><br><br><b>Who on VB do you liken yourself the most to (and why)?</b> I have no idea. I worry that if I mention anyone they'll be offended that I think I'm like them or that they are like me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:">

You've peaked my curiosity....what is it that makes you very weird?</div>
</div>
<br><br><br>
Lots of little things that add up to people usually summing me up as weird.<br><br><br><br>
I tend to be very outspoken (I rarely if ever hesitate to speak my mind). I'm a fiscal conservative, pro-life, pro-environment, anti-death penalty, home schooling, very religiously observant Catholic, vegetarian/vegan-wannabe, whose hobbies include making rosaries and handgun shooting. I'm pro-2nd Amendment, I'm a member of both PeTA and the NRA. I won't let my daughter wear miniskirts or belly baring tops but I do let her watch Desperate Housewives and some "R"-rated movies and I let her play Diablo and Unreal. I also have a very warped sense of humour.<br><br><br><br>
I'm a very cotradictory person I suppose. And on my bad days I'm even considered cantankerous (and I'm only 37 can't wait to see what happens when I'm old!).<br><br><br><br>
Weird is the most common and probably one of the nicest things people have called me.

My curiosity is peaked too...are you moving?<br><br><br><br>
And, I have to say that your complexity is one of the things I admire about you. So often, people bow to the pressure to just tow the party line. Thinking for yourself is good! (even if you're wrong about the whole gun thing...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lipsrsealed2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sealed:"> kidding, kidding)

Thank you very much! I appreciate the diversity of opinion here - even when it gets heated. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
Yes. We're moving to norhern Alabama. We'll be closing on our house there next Friday and moving at the end of this month. I detest moving! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">
