If you were a dog, what breed would you be, and why?
I would be a Basset Hound. Because they are goofy, lazy and disobedient. But I suspect they are very caring and deep thinkers, too.
What does the color purple make you think of?
Purple Mountains Majesty -- they aren't really purple, though. I can see them from here.
Also for some reason Purple Rain by Prince
And the Red Hat Society
Approximately how long does it take you to get ready each morning?
Thirty minutes if I know exactly what I want to wear
How many cousins do you have, and are you close to them?
I have fifteen first cousins who are living and three who are not still living. I am not really close to any of them. The one that I was close to died from ovarian cancer. My sister and I are the youngest in the group with the next being 6 months older and the oldest being about 20 or so years older. We do see some of them for Thanksgiving and an annual reunion, but that's about it.
