Three things you want to try in the next 12 months: finish my novel, spend some time in the snow with Scout, get all of our boxes unpacked (I figure a year oughta do it--ha ha ha)

Two truths and a lie: I loved the book The Time Traveler's Wife (Audrey Niffenegger), I loved the book Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller, I loved the book The Kite Runner by Kahled Hosseini*

Three things you want to do before you die: ride in a hot air balloon, win some kind of major literary award, make a souffle

Three people you would like to take this quiz now: whoever.

*I hated Bridges of Madison County with the burning passion of a thousand fires from Hell. So basically I'm really sorry I read it.

Ironically, not only did we almost name Gypsy "Scout", but for a brief period of about 2 hours, her name was officially "Tallulah Belle." We didn't even realize those were Demi Moore's kids until later. We had actually picked them out on our own. How scary.
