I pick the first one and the reason why has to do with the same reason I chose HARE over TORTOISE: speed. I love handwriting but it goes so slow and I am too spoiled these days by the speed with which my fingers can follow my thoughts when I type (which is also why I'm glad I'm a touch-typist)! :)

I LOVE that you're a reader of the last page -- I was a little nervous to confess that I am, too, before I read your list. :)

Me three!

Not sure

I hug anyone and everyone. It is funny. I don't go to hug my students, but I must have a vibe because they hug me all the time! College Students. It is weird.

Re: From Megsie

I had someone confront me once about the fact that I hugged everyone but her when we met at various activities...I was SO taken aback. I realized that even though we had met quite often, I didn't feel as if we were friends and I must have unconsciously gotten a "not a hugger" vibe from her, so I never did, though it was totally not on purpose!

Kanelbullar or Cinnabon?

I choose kanelbullar over Cinnabon because kanelbullar are all about the bread, which I never get enough of, and not the goop, which I get tired of very quickly.

I think the goop is BEST when it's on a cinnamon bun. I think kanelbullar are just too dry, most of the time...except those ones with apple goop in. Those are yummy!

I confess, I recently read the end of the book I'm currently finishing, just because I HAD to know why I was reading it! Not my usual style!

I don't do it all the time, but sometimes I just can't help myself! Usually it's when I'm really worried about whether the author is going to kill off someone I like.

I don't even read the last page of books I choose to quit reading.

Here's one for you:

Sushi lunch with Geena or bag lunch at your desk

SUSHI! SUSHI! SUSHI! I can't do it this week, but possibly next?? How's your next week look?

Sorry for the response delay - Björn was researching last-minute getaways and I had to wait for him to give me an answer...

I can do sushi either Thursday or Friday. If either of those works for you just say which and what time I should pick you up.

I have a lunch on Friday (AWC, want to come? :D ), so let's say Thursday! 11:30 as usual?

1130 Friday it is :-)

No no no, Friday is the AWC lunch. FOR OUR LUNCH, I meant Thursday. Sorry to be confusing :)

Unless you DO want to go to the AWC lunch??

Sorry to be a goofball! I didn't read carefully enough.

No thanks (to the AWC lunch). I want a sushi lunch with LIZ.

Thursday at 11:30.
