f you were to move and came fully furnished with everything you ever wanted, list at least three things from your old house you wish to retain? (assume all personal items; photos, books, animals, etc. go with you) My first choice is my family photo album. We are an odd bunch sometimes, but I now am friends with them, and I love them all. Secondly, I would bring the Venus d’Milo brass statue my parents bought when we lived in Turkey. Venus has been prominently displayed in every house since then. Thirdly, and I am going to cheat here, I would bring all of the paintings my mom and my sister S. painted and gave to me — I am at Mom’s, so I can’t include photos, but they are my lovely guardian angel, from S., and my painting of Turkey and my two underwater paintings from Mom’s easel.
Is the glass half empty or half full? What is in the glass? For the first time in my adult life, I believe, my glass is more than half full of cool, clean water.
What calms you down? 1960s pop music, 1970s Rock, and exercise.
What individual item of food would you not eat, even if it was served to you at the Queen/President’s dinner table? (Something ordinary.) Green peppers, prepared by anyone, any way.
