Okay so I’ve officially been tagged. I suppose when a blogger gets tagged that entails throwing a large party. After all that is a bit like a debutante ball. Thought my ball may be the small type since I only got tagged once. But then again the tagger, Susan, has the heart of at least two people. So here it goes:
1) What’s the most fun work you’ve ever done, and why?
As a software developer I write code and I teach classes on programming in LabVIEW. One client actually paid me to teach a class in Sydney, Australia. It was fantastic. The engineers were increadibly bright, working on facinating projects and were wonderful hosts. I’m still amazed they actually paid me for the work/fun. (Actually, I love my work. To think that I get paid for something that is a blast is a real blessing.)
2) A. Name one thing you did in the past that you no longer do but wish you did?
B. Name one thing you’ve always wanted to do but keep putting off.
Go on a cruise with my husband & get my cousin Laura to come up to Colorado for a visit.
3) A. What two things would you most like to learn or be better at, and why?
Conversationalist: I have a friend who can select any random person in a room, strike up and maintain an interesting conversation. I really enjoy people and sometimes I can get the conversation going and at others I’m at loss for the questions to spark a little engagement.
Getting unplugged: I burn too much time online. Even if it is time is usually well spent.
B. If you could take a class/workshop/apprentice from anyone in the world living or dead, who would it be and what would you hope to learn?
I’d like to learn about theology and philosophy, oh yea, I’m a student at Denver Seminary with many great profs. I’d also like to learn to be a sharp Bridge player, oh yea, my in-laws are very good and excellent mentors. I’d like to work on my writing skills, yep that one is covered thanks to my friend Houston. Oh I know, I want to be a better and more efficient runner, yea, my cousin the runner extrodinare is a great coach. I do wish I was more proficient at photography, yep Kari could help me out on that one. And then there is the issue with cooking – gotta lot of friends who do that well. So it seems I’m covered with access to masters at many skills. So I’ll just mix up the question a bit and opt for lunch with Brit Hume and Juan Williams. And make it a long lunch.
4) A. What three words might your best friends or family use to describe you?
intelligent, persistent (sometimes positive and sometimes not), energetic
B. Now list two more words you wish described you…
5) What are your top three passions? (can be current or past, work, hobbies, or causes)
hanging out with my husband and family, learning, and teaching
6) Write–and answer–one more question that YOU would ask someone
When you eat corn-on-the-cob, do you eat it in neat rows savoring every little kernal, or do you eat around the cob and leave lots of kernals untouched?
Neat little rows – and I polish the leftovers when my kids leave sections untouched!
