Three Things

Susie invited me to play along with the latest blog meme, and I decided to take her up on it. Here goes . . .

Three names you go by:

Three screen names you have had:

Three physical things you like about yourself:
My height
My teeth
I’m a brown-eyed girl

Three parts of your heritage:
Japanese (well, my name is—thanks to J.P.)

Three things that scare you:
A recurrence of my cancer
A recurrence of my cancer
A recurrence of my cancer – I can’t think of anything else that scares me nearly as much as this, so it warrants the top three spots on my list.

Three things you’re wearing now:
The watch that J.P. gave me for my birthday.
Glasses, because my contacts are causing problems at the moment.
The t-shirt that I got from the conference in Boston a few weeks ago.

Three of your favorite bands or musical artists:
Barenaked Ladies
Martina McBride
Mozart – quite the eclectic mix, huh?

Three of your favorite songs:
I Can Only Imagine
My Baby Loves me Just the Way that I Am
How Great Thou Art

Three things you want in a relationship:
Love (duh!)

Two truths and a lie (see Comments to learn which is the lie):
I’ve been to Europe twice.
J.P. and I lived 1000 miles apart until after we were married.
I used to have a cat.

Three physical things about the opposite sex that appeal to you:

Three of your favorite hobbies:
Interior design
Playing clarinet

Three things you want to do badly right now:
Buy furniture for our empty dining room.
Take the entire summer off.
Get in shape.

Three careers you’re considering:
Bus driver. Well, not really, but this is the career I fantasize about when work is getting too stressful.
Web designer – if I had the skills.
I have no idea what else. I still don’t know what I want to do when I grow up.

Three places you want to go on vacation:
Hawaii – Waikiki and the Big Island (and a few days on Kauai if we win the lottery and have extra time)
California wine country
Key West

Three kids’ names you like:
Eleanor/Ellie – it was my grandma’s name
Takeo (as a boy’s middle name – to reflect J.P.’s heritage)

Three things you want to do before you die:
Raise a child
Visit all 50 states
Blow out at least 75 candles on my birthday cake

Three ways that you are stereotypically a girl:
I like shoes
I hate swimsuit shopping
I complain about being fat

Three celebrity crushes:
Tom Cruise – when he’s clean-cut, but not when he’s greasy and scraggly
Alton Brown – for his offbeat sense of humor
Rachael Ray – okay, so this is one of J.P.’s—I couldn’t think of three!
