11? about ME

Okay Chan, I will be happy to humor you. Plus, I thought your questions were interesting.

1. Were you named after someone and if so whom? Malerie Elizabeth...My middle name is my dad's grandmother's middle name. I only knew her as a baby.
2. If you were another person, would you be friends with you? Are we using the term 'friends' loosely? I guess when I think of friends its like how close-knit my friendships were in highschool. I don't seem to find a lot of those in my adult years. But Anyway, yes I believe I would be friends with me. It would depend a little on what type of person I was. As long as I loved to talk, talk, laugh, watch movies, not shop, talk, and laugh some more...then yes, I would be my friend.
3. What is the first thing you notice about people?The way they talk and their expressions while doing so. If people are animated and interesting when they interact then I'm interested. If they're dull, quiet, or never move their face into any new expressions then I wonder what sadness or lack of excitement they've experienced to lead to such boringness. I also really like to look at shoes...not sure why.
4. Who do you miss at the moment? Can I change this to what?...I miss seeing and living close to all of my high school friends. They have kids I've never met. We are all experiencing the joys of motherhood and I would love to experience and share it with them. Maybe that's still a who.
5. Mountain hideaway or beach house? Mountain hideaway--Especially since this is an all seasons answer. I would prefer winter though.
6. What is the farthest you have been from home? South Korea. I say this because it really felt farther away then when I went to Australia since I was only 14 went I went. So I was missing my mommy. When I went to Australia I was married and went with my Hubby.
7. City or country?Country. I like the city but if its one or the other then always country. Its bigger to roam free and its quieter.
8. Would you bungee jump? Nope. Sounds like a cop-out... but I have kids. They need a mommy.
9. Favorite sport to watch? If I have to....BYU football. I enjoy it but I always think of what better things I can be doing during that 3-4 hour time period. Plus its a pain for me to try and engage in it when I've got my kids in and out and all around.
10. Favorite school teacher and why? Amy Smithson. Algebra II, 10th grade. I actually understood her. And she is quite funny.
11. What do you want to do when you retire? Retire? RETIRE? from what? I'm a stay-at-home mom. I will never retire. ANd I don't really think I want to :) But when my kids are grown and out of the house I want to go on a mission with my husband and I want to be crafty. I want a room where I can just create things without little hands trying to help. Its fine for now...I enjoy it a little, but I look forward to a time where I can just go and do with out planning and failing.

I don't really have time to make up my own version right now. But if anyone wants to continue this along....
