Christopher Walken was actually my first choice, but then I picked Leonard Cohen because I think he's older and statistically will die sooner, therefore I will still have a chance to meet CW AFTER I meet LC. kwim?

Me too about the zoos. It is so hard to explain to people why we really don't care to meet at zoos. I mean how is your child ever going to learn about animals if they don't see them? There are videos, and pictures online, and I would rather them respect other animals than expect to see them in cages.

Is it hot? Really? Seriously I thought that was just the menopausal hot flashes! It's HOT! That's great news!!

And I just texted dp and told him that I wouldn't be complaining so much about how miserable i am if i didn't feel so guilty about NOT DOING ANYTHING.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WILDFLOWER!!!!

A - Age: 28

B - Bra size: 36C... D when milk comes in...34B before children

C - Cats or dogs? (Or no pets?) No pets. We had a kittie we gave to my dh's gramma cause she was so lonely. It ended up being good since now they've discovered my nieces are HIGHLY allergic to cats. : I did have a fish too - 3 actually - but the one ate the other two then died.

D - Drivers License Weight - truth or lie? Well if you looked at it now it would be - I have my prepregger weight on!!

E - Emergency Room visits (not incl. preg): in life maybe 3 to 4.

F - Fruit or Veggies: Whatever craving hits at the time!

G - Google your exes? Only one and then decided never again!! He wasn't the best relationship I was in ever and doing so just reminded me to be SO thankful to be away from him!!

H - Habla Espanol? Very little

I - Ice Cream flavor? Hagaan Daaz Dulce De Leche!! YUM!!!

J - Jobs you've had in your life: Waitress, Actress, ER registrar, Makeup/Hair person for an indy film, and now Head of Theatre Dept at my church! Ooh - I think I sold lemonade as a kid.

K - Kindergarten teacher...do you remember his/her name? No. All I remember is that the teachers (looking back they seemed college age-ish) yelled at me for using my right hand when we were trying to write our names. My mom had to come in and tell them I seemed to favor the left and please let me use that hand!

L - Loves you've had (yes..I know you love your kids and your pets...I'm talking IN LOVE): I would say 2...but when I look at dh compared to the other - I can see SUCH a world of difference in the two relationships! Thank God the better being with dh!!

M - Manicures, pedicures, or neither: Would SO love to get them on a regular basis!! Actually, don't care as much re mani's as I do the pedi's!!!

N - Napping while preggo - are you that lucky? Yes! Praise God YES!!!

O- Oceans you've swam in: Atlantic and Pacific

P - Person you would LOVE to meet: My dd whom I placed for adoption when she was born!! It's an open adoption: we write back and forth and send gifts and pics and such but the deal is we will meet in person if/when she is ready...and she's only 6 1/2 so I figure it will be awhile. But oh for that day to see her again and be able to hug her!!!!!!!

Q - Question you'd like to ask your baby RIGHT NOW: What is your name little one???

R - Republican, Democrat, or neither: Republican

S - Smoke (now, then, never)? then

T - Type with fingers on the "right" keys? Yep! Typing class was such a chore but it paid off in spades!!

U - University, College, or none? University

V - Vacations planned for after baby comes: Well - after I win the lotto! Just joking! Our first big vacation will be going to upstate NY to see my mom and step dad for christmas! Although I wouldn't mind a little weekend honeymoon with hubby before then! :

W - Weight you'd like to be a year from now: 130

X - Xcited? or Scared? Very xcited to meet her!

Y - Younger men or older men: Truly depends on the man - I've met SUCH immature old guys and very mature young ones...and the opposite!

Z - Zoos you LOVE: Wow, haven't been to a zoo since I was a little girl! We were underneath at a huge glass window to see the polar bears swim when one swam up and WHAMMED the glass with his paws - the glass cracked the TINIEST bit and I almost peed my pants as we all ran out of there screaming!!!

Sure, why not. I am stuck at home with whooping cough so I am looking for a little fun!

A - Age: 29

B - Bra size: 34DD but 34D when not preggo

C - Cats or dogs?(Or no pets?) One cat, Ophelia

D - Drivers License Weight - Mine does not have weight on it

E - Emergency Room visits (not incl. preg): 3-4 as a kid, 2 as an adult

F - Fruits or Veggies? Fruit

G - Google your exes? Yeah :

H - Habla Espanol? not really

I - Ice Cream flavor? mocha chip

J - Jobs you've had in your life: nanny, waitress, scheduling director. currently mama and volunteer.

K - Kindergarten teacher...do you remember his/her name? Mrs. Philips

L - Loves you've had (yes..I know you love your kids and your pets...I'm talking IN LOVE): 1, maybe 2 if we are talking about young and stupid love.

M - Manicures, pedicures, or neither: pedicures

N - Napping while preggo - any chance I get!

O- Oceans you've swam in: Atlantic

P - Person you would LOVE to meet: Oh, there are lots of feminist and historical scholars I would love to spend an afternoon talking with. I can't pick just one!

Q - Question you'd like to ask your baby RIGHT NOW (I can guess what most of us would ask! LOL!): What will you be like?

R - Republican, Democrat, or neither: democrat but really more of a democratic socialist

S - Smoke (now, then, never)? Then (and I might once or twice a year or so on a nice summer evening outside if not pregnant)

T - Type with fingers on the "right" keys? I mostly just use first three fingers on each hand.

U - University, College, or none? University and college. Still en route but currently off for a few semesters to do the multiple baby thing!

V - Vacations planned for after baby comes: nothing for the months following but eventually dh and I would like to go someplace tropical with no kids. We also plan to travel extensively throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, and South America, both with and without kids, as they grow up and move away.

W - Weight you'd like to be a year from now: Ideally?? 125. But I'm going to start running again, and my running weight is about 140. Which is cool because I am much stronger, healthier, and trimmer at that weight.

X - Xcited? or Scared? Both. Excited about the birth and new babe aspects. Scared of the juggling three kids, two so close in age.

Y - Younger men or older men: definitely not younger. Usually they are just a couple of years older. (of course Patrick Dempsey is almost 11 years older though...: )

Z - Zoos you LOVE: Not really a big fan of zoos. Mostly they just make me feel sad. The Bronx zoo is pretty cool though (or at least it was the last time I was there.)
