20 Questions (times 5)

My friend Stacey, who is also my neighbor and 4am Royal Wedding Watcher Partner, loves these questionnaires, as I have for quite a while...(enter the many MySpace ones I filled out...back in the day, as well as I've done my fair share on facebook as well.)

Anyways, as I can't turn down a good set of questions, here we go:

1. How old will you be in five years?
Ugh...38 years old. Holy crap.

Me, Myself and I.

3. How tall are you?
6' 1"

4. What do you look forward to most in the next six weeks?
My crazy upcoming week, Idina Menzel with the CSO at Red Rocks, Harry Potter final movie premier (yes, I am going to a midnight showing with 7 friends and a grip of other HP nuts, and yes, I am SO stinking excited about it.)

From Marly in response to one I sent her.

10. Do you prefer to call or text?
Depends on what's going on, 8 times out of 10, a text.  Unless I'm driving, it would take too long to type out or needing to confirm something right away, then a call.

11. What were you doing at 12am last night?
Settling in for bed.  Just got home from John and Kendra's wedding.

Work.  I know it's sad because it's where we spend so many hours of our lives there, but it's just hard lately because of the nature of patients we work with and it's been stressful lately.  I enjoy being with friends and laughing instead of being reminded how nasty cancer is.  (I had a particularly rough week last week, so it's a bit bitter right now.)
