    Fellow blogfest participant and new follower here. I really like "criminiy"! Your background seems vaguely familiar;-) If you get a chance, check out my answers at: http://writinginwonderland.blogspot.com/

    Hi, I'm dropping in from the blog fest (nice to meet you!) and am your newest follower. I'm at: www.kittiehoward.blogspot.com

    Loved your answers to the questions.

    I also enjoy Daniel Silva's mysteries.

    Hi Gayle!

    These are great answers. I work for a medical IT company and believe me it's an awful job. Granted, the emergencies I deal with aren't the important, people's health kind. Still...blech.

    Nice to "meet" you!
    Cheers!
    Jen

    I really enjoyed your answers! I can tell right away you're a horse-riding enthusiast. Loved the answer to #3. And how interesting you'd like to be a monk. I've always wanted to try the vow of silence thing -- but don't know how that'd work in my present life. Maybe once the kids move out...?

    Thanks for playing along!

    "Go back" classic. Loved it and great meeting you.

    I like your answers. I think we are kindred spirits:).

    What would you pursue as a monk?

    KO: The Insect Collector said...

    I love these- though I admit I am guilty on staring on occasion (I do try to look as if I'm not).
    Your #10 is wonderful.

    Ah, I bet many of us would like to hear the answer you gave at ten when we get to heaven.

    Heather M. Gardner said...

    OK, do the horses actually make noise when they graze or was that your way of saying silence? Either way it sounds good.
    Thanks for sharing your answers.
