Interesting jobs you've had.
And, wow, the places you've been on holiday to! Nice.

I've been ordered to do this too. Law and Order: Criminal Intent and someplace warm will feature in my list, that's for sure. :-)

But I don't know who I am! It's a philosophical and spirtual quandry!

I really love PBS, too. I should have picked Mystery myself. I've been loving the Foyle's War reruns, they're so much better than I remembered them being.

Your four favorite foods crack me right up. You're a very meaty gal, M, I never would have guessed that about you!

I hope someday you talk a little bit more about the Phillipines than you have already. Those entries where you talked about being little there were some of your best. (I have to go look up where in Germany Tuebingen is located, because I'm suddenly feeling geographically disabled. Never even heard of it before! Eeep!)

Thanks for doing this - it's nice to get to know you better!

I've been a practicing vegetarian for 5 years, but still prone to drool over mention or smell of good BBQ ribs. And applewood-smoked bacon...!

Gabaldon's books are amazing - but I started getting aggravated at the diluted story line after the first two. I should re-read them - thanks for the inspiration!

I get it, the old flatter-and-tag gambit. Thanks, Mireille. Is it ok if this takes me a while?
