1. ‘In like a lion, out like a lamb’…does the first part of this saying about March weather ring true where you live?
Well, so far, the weather has been kind of weird: cold then rainy and warm and muggy and foggy! But typically, March does end up super nice. That is when we usually realize it’s nice enough to take hikes and sit outside.
2. March 4th is National Grammar Day. What common grammatical error bothers you the most?
Ok so it’s more like punctuation but I HATE when people put an unnecessary apostrophe. If it is simply plural, it doesn’t need a mark to indicate possessiveness! I grade papers for a living so I see these sorts of transgressions frequently.
3. William Arthur Ward says, ‘The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts his sails.’ Which one are you?
Oh geez. At first, I am the pessimist and then I turn into the realist once I realize nothing will change if I don’t do something about it.
4. What’s something you need to ‘march forth and conquer’ this month?
The Fall schedule and getting Ell signed up for camp.
5. An ongoing debate around here…do you dust first, then vacuum or vacuum first, then dust? Of the two routine household chores, which do you dislike the least? How’s that for wording?
Always dust first. I don’t mind doing either chore, to be honest.
6. According to thrilllist.com, the ten most photographed sites in the U.S.A. are- Cinderella’s Castle in Orlando, Southernmost House in Key West Florida, The Space Needle in Seattle, The Site of the Boston Massacre in Boston, The Bellagio Lake/fountains in Las Vegas, The Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, Coit Tower in San Fransisco, The Art Institute of Chicago, Niagara Falls, and snagging the number one spot-The Guggenheim Museum in New York City.
How many on this list have you photographed? Which on the list would you most like to visit and photograph?
I’ve only been to three and of those, I have only photographed Cinderella’s castle and Niagra Falls. Clearly, I have some catching up to do.
7. Fifty years ago Monday (March 2, 1965) The Sound of Music premiered at the Rivoli Theatre in NYC. Have you seen the film? Do you own a copy? On a scale of 1-10 how much do you love it (or not)? Ten=best movie ever. If you’re a fan, what’s your favorite scene or song from the movie?
Eh, I remember watching it as a kid and think it is fine but it’s not a movie I’m clamoring to see..
