Laurie is my other name.
Tai might be considered my alter ego. It's always Tai who gets the speeding tickets and in trouble with 'the man'.
Laurie's the one who goes to work everyday and brings home the bacon. Looking closely at this arrangement, one would suspect Laurie would get tired of having to pay for all those speeding tickets. But there ARE benefits. Tai gets free trips, new cars and adventures that could never happen to anyone else, and naturally, Laurie gets to go along for the ride.
Two things you are wearing right now ~ Two pairs of socks. One pair black, the other, white. It is VERY cold in my house.
Two things you would want (or have) in a relationship ~ Free trips. New cars. I'm kidding. Mischief and laughter.
Two of your favorite things to do ~ Reading and dining out. They go remarkably well together.
Two things you want very badly at the moment ~ An open ended plane ticket and enough money to travel in style. It's not too much to ask!
Two pets you had/have ~ Bentley. My gorgeous old gentleman cat. I still miss him. And Wen. Pol and I decided to have pet mice, so we each got one. Wen, and Doubt. But Doubt was a bit vicious and liked to bite, so we traded her in for Mousameeque (my own spelling...I wonder if Pol spelled her name the same way!).
Two people you think will fill this out ~ Who ever would like too! Mostly everyone already has done this...I'm so behind.
Two things that you did last night ~ Went for dinner with a friend of mine and ate oysters, both raw AND cooked and read a travel book.
Two things you ate today ~ Bacon. (The bacon Laurie brings home!) And a fruit muffin for breakfast.
Two things you’re doing tomorrow ~ ooooh, I'm going to WORK! And then I'm going to do my volunteer shift at the local crisis centre.
Two longest car rides ~ From Courtenay to Lake Tahoe in a truck. I would climb through tiny window to get to the back of the truck at 80 mph just to feel the Nevada sunshine on my face. Now THAT was fun. And from Banff, Alberta back to Courtenay.
Two favorite holidays ~ Halloween and...and...I guess I don't really get a kick out of holidays, but I sure do like the time off!
Two favorite beverages ~ Wine. Red AND white.
Two people no longer alive who you’d like to talk to ~ Well, I'd like to talk to my Grandmother again. We got along very well, but we never really 'talked'. She was very 'old school' and I don't think she thought an 18 year old kid was really set for conversation. I'd also like to talk with Richard Feynman. He was a quantum physicist and Noble prize winner. His books are so filled with life and laughter it seems to me that he would be a truly amazing person to sit and speak too.
In a strip club.
'Cus that's what he liked to do.
*The pictures are from Spider, Pol, Jeff (our personal photographer and Spider's dear husband) and my trip to Italy last year. The first and last picture are from the Cinque Terre and the mask in the centre I found in Venice.
In the first picture, I ordered to much food. The last picture is the 3 of us hiking the Cinque Terre trail between villages.
