"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

Sort of 95 Questions Meme

Rudely stolen from Dan & Posh Totty. There are not actually 95 questions. The missing ones are a mystery.

1. Can you legally drink? Is there anyplace it is illegal to drink? I am sure there are a lot of dehydrated people running around, then.
2. Will you be married in the next 2 years? We have a tentative date of either July 25, 2009 or August 1st. Depends on the availability of the site when we put down the deposit.
3. Is it easy for others to make you feel awkward? yes- very easy.
4. What are your least favorite school subjects? Anything taught by a monotone lecture.
5. Who was the last person you called? Chris, whinging at him that I want him here, and not at the Winchester Mystery Trailer. He is tired though. There are times I rue the 40 minute drive between us.
6. Do you prefer to call or text? Call, but I use texting when I might be disturbing someone or when it is easier.
7. Do you have a pet? Blizzard the dog, plus fish and two dead gerbils buried in the yard. (Aidan is still mourning them, they still count)
8. What did you do today? Got kids to school, took Aidan to the dentist for a filling, ran errands, came home, died for a while, got the kids off to their dads, died some more, putzed on the computer, didn't eat since this morning, took meds, took more meds, cursed meds for not making me feel better, listened to music, thought about eating, actually pulled out food to eat, have had food sitting next to me for 5 hours without touching it, thought about going out for hot soup, realized everything is closed, may just go to bed now.
9. Do you like carrots? Yes, but mainly cooked.
10. When is the last time you saw your mom? 2 minutes ago when she went in the kitchen. Easy question since I live with her.

19. What are you doing for your next birthday? Something fun, I hope.
21. Do you like coffee? Yes, but all frou-frou'd up.
22. Would you rather have money or love? Well both would be nice, but money is no fun without love, so I guess I would have to say love. Love can be loads of fun without money :)

27. What are you thinking about right now? Long conversation I just had with Chris, getting this meme done so I can go to bed, getting up to take meds, and taking an ambien so I can sleep.

28. Any plans for the weekend? Had a lot of plans- now just going to wing it.
29. What time do you get up in the morning? School days, between 5:45 and 7:30 OMG we are all going to be late... hurry, hurry. Brushing your teeth isn't that important.

64. Where are you right now? In my reclining chair.
65. If you HAD to kiss the last person you kissed, would you? Stupid question. Who was this test written by- 12 year olds? Of course- if I liked them enough to kiss them that recently, then I would do it if I had to. Hell if you gave me enough incentive, I would kiss damn near anybody.
