32. What’s the best movie you’ve seen in the past 2 weeks? Hysterical laughter. Anyone who knows me is also laughing hysterically. I watch movies but never have ANY memory of the names, plots or characters. I'll ask The Professor. Oh yeah, he said The Ten Commandments with Yul Brunner as Pharoah, you know the old one. The Professor has a life goal of watching all the Academy Award winners for all the categories, so I watch a lot of movies with him. Maybe it's because I am also knitting or spinning at the same time that I don't remember them.

33. Is there anyone you like right now? I like lots of people. I like the teacher I work with, most of my neighbors, many of my relatives. This must be one of those teeny bopper questions.

36. Did you cry today? Nope. I was thinking about Chaplain Dan leaving soon for the Middle East and I got a little teary eyed, but no I didn't cry.

37. Why did you answer and post this? Because I am sitting here on the futon again, resting after my morning with the kindergarteners, still nursing the cold one of them gave me two weeks ago.

38. Tag 5 people who would do this survey. Let's see. How about

Bethany at Red Yarn

Sherida who just had a baby boy and is home now and has time to blog

Sara at Much Ado About Something

Monica in her Forever House
