How this works

If your name is listed above, this is a spotlight on you! Please answer all questions you have time for and feel comfortable answering.

Everyone else, ask questions of the five or six DDC members listed. Silly questions, serious questions, whatever you want to know!

When will everyone's thread happen?

I will start a new thread every Monday. (Changed from Sunday, as I think Monday is a better day to start. If anyone else wants to help with this, please PM me. I have some weeks coming up where I won't be able to do this.)

We'll go in groups of 5-6, working our way down the list. Right now, that means the last spotlight thread will start in mid-September. I am taking the list from capretta's carefully maintained roster, so if you are not on that list, make sure to get on it if you want to be part of the spotlight threads.

What if I don't want to be in the spotlight?

That's OK. Just PM me to let me know. Or just don't answer any questions when your thread comes around.

We are going on the default assumption that people who have signed up on the roster are interested in talking with the rest of us and getting to know each other, but if you don't feel comfortable answering a bunch of questions on a public forum, that's perfectly OK.

What if someone doesn't answer?

This is one of the advantages of having so many people. With 5 people in the spotlight each week, chances are good that at least a few of each group will be able and willing to answer questions.

What does your MDC user name mean? How did you choose it?

 

Tell us a little about where you live. (Be as vague or as specific as you like.) What do you like about it? What brought and/or kept you there?

 

What's the last thing you ate?

 

If you had to choose, would you rather have a two week camping vacation or a weekend in a luxury hotel?

 

List one question you would like the others to answer. (Don't forget to answer each others' questions!)

What does your MDC user name mean? How did you choose it?

I live in Alaska on an island! It's the third island in AK I've lived on.

 

Tell us a little about where you live. (Be as vague or as specific as you like.) What do you like about it? What brought and/or kept you there?

On an island in the middle of the North Pacific. Small town, great people, lots of rain! I like the close knit community, running into people you know at the grocery store, and the ability to get out fishing, hiking, and hunting easily.  We came from another part of the state so my DH could finish his grad school thesis. We stayed because he got a great job right after defending. We do think we'll move south in the next couple of years though to be closer to family.

 

What's the last thing you ate?

I'm currently eating some toast with hummus and having a cup of coffee.

 

If you had to choose, would you rather have a two week camping vacation or a weekend in a luxury hotel?

Camping all the way! I love camping and we haven't done enough of it since DD was born. I wouldn't refuse a weekend in a luxury hotel though! I just don't know what I would do with myself all weekend!

 

List one question you would like the others to answer. (Don't forget to answer each others' questions!)

Do you have any favorite blogs you read?

   I love reading SouleMama.

 

What is your favorite, quick go to recipe?

DH is the alpha cook in our house and does most of the cooking! But, I like to make homemade pizza with gluten free crust due to DD's gluten allergy.

 

Coffee or Tea?

Coffee!

 

Do you plan to go grey with grace or dye?

Gray with grace!

 

Do you watch TV, what is your favorite show? 

I like watching The Amazing Race when its on.

 

Soup, salad, sandwich - pick two and what type. 

I just had a fabulous sandwich this weekend... on a croissant, brie, apple, turkey, spinach, honey walnut cream cheese. Delicious! I'll add some potato cheese soup.

 

Summer or winter? 

Winter but I long for real seasons which we don't really get here. I'd like a little of each please and a bit hotter then 60 for the summer!

 

Do you sing in the car? Only when you are alone or when you are with others?

Sing with others!
