  1. What I nice way of getting to know you! You’ve got such an eclectic and open outlook. Glad that you’re living your dream job! Hope to get there soon.

    Just to add, my favorite color is red, my fave season is Autumn, I like both cake and pie, and yes, resting your feet after a long day is the best feeling. Place a cat on my lap and I’m in Heaven.

    That was fun!

    Cheers!
