1. What I was doing 10 years ago: Aside from spending the 4th of July in Ojai, not entirely sure—I think I’ve blocked it out. Probably working at an import/export company that was eventually bought by FedEx. No, I take that back—I just checked an old resume. I didn’t start working at Tower Group until September, I was going to summer school at FIDM.

2. What 5 things are on on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
I can only pick 5?????
Sew green bodice—have ready for Angelina to fit
Chemise—finish edges of last gusset, and draw embroidery pattern on sleeves
Finish reading Lucia: A Venetian Life in the Age of Napoleon
Clean car
Finish reading all Quilting books
Plant everything that can be planted in pots, water and start plotting where to plant everything else (I bought about 30 plants in Cambria and Paso Robles this weekend)
Fill out passport application
Write resume
Apply for job at KUSC

3. Snacks I enjoy:
Stuffed Basil Leaves
Cheese and crackers
Soy parmesan on toasted pita bread
Watermelon, grapes

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Buy a Birkin bag . And dog collars to match.
Build a beachfront Palladian villa in PV Estates, with a courtyard strongly resembling the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, a couple of acres of gardens, the most enormous bathtub known to mankind, and an even bigger walk-in closet. And a library on every floor.
Take a cruise to Antarctica
Go to India for 6 months to study yoga.
Quit my job, take voice lessons and riding lessons, and start training to walk across England, compose a symphony and an opera, maybe write a novel.
Move to France, and learn to speak French.
Pay someone to make all my garb.
And then I would have to figure out what to do with the rest of my life. This is the part where I start using the money to make a positive impact on the world. Maybe something to do with literacy.

5. Places I have lived:
Rolling Hills Estates, CA
Claremont, CA

No, I've never served you the toasted pita, and you can't buy it in the store, but it's the simplest thing in the world--just cut it in half, and cut the 2 circles into 4 triangles, sprinkle with parmesan (regular or soy) then put in the toaster.

haha even I can handle that. have you ever had the pita chips before? they are like the bagel chips that come in a little bag in different flavors. those are my new pita obsession. pita chips with garlic hummus. or three pepper spicy hummus. yum. you like hummus right? its not a cooked veggie. its a blended bean of some sort i think. :0)

I have served you pita chips. I mix the hummus with sun-dried tomato pesto from Trader Joe's and you scarfed it down. I can't stand the smell of the tomatoes, but everyone really likes it, and it's the simplest thing in the world--just 2 packages to mix together. I've never actually tried hummus. It looks weird, but maybe sometime, I'll behave like an adult, and let you get me to try it.

Well, it's not as though behaving like an adult is something I practice on a regular basis. I just like to dip a toe in once in a while.
