Nurse Nancy Helps w/a Meme...

As some of you know by now, I work in a school health/nurse's office. I'm the health assistant and work with the school nurse. Nurse Nancy is our school nurse. She's just wonderful and we've had a lot of fun over the last year and a half working together and getting to know each other. It just so happens one of her very best friends has a blog. Imagine that! Anywho, her blogging friend Ellen had a fun meme on her blog and requested the two of us answer that meme. Below, our answers. Nurse Nancy's answers are in red, mine are in blue. Read and be amazed...well, NN & I hope you're at least entertained for a minute or two...

Herewith, questions for both you and NN to answer:

1. If you could meet one actor or actress, who would it be and why?

Robert Redford. Not only is he still very dreamy looking - deep creases in his face and all - but he is a benevolent sole and gifted in knowing good films (Sundance Film Festival).

Hmmm....I wish I could have met and known Paul Newman. Not possible, so I'll go with his wife, Joanne Woodward. She is such a remarkable woman in and of herself.  I love what they both have stood for over the years as far as their giving back, and I also am in awe of her and her late husband's acting skills. 

2. Where would you like to go on your next vacation? Where did you go on your favorite vacation?

My next vacation can be anywhere warm and sunny. Favorite vacation was Grand Canyon trip last year. Seeing our experiences through my child's eyes (Junior Fly Boy) was priceless and the company we had with us was the best. Cannot put a price on good friends! I still have Jr. Fly Boys picture as my wallpaper on my computer at work and it makes me smile every day :)
My next vacation I'd like to go to Missourah....Ahhhh my home state. My favorite vacation? I've had several magical vacation moments...Bermuda with friends...road trip to Maine with 40th Grand Tour of New Mexico and many more...the latest was Crabtacular last February at and sis-in-law's home in San Jose - it was beyond phenomenal!

3 What is your favorite thing to eat and can you make it or do you have to buy it?

I guess I have two favorite things....good pizza (mushrooms on top) which I have to eat out as my husband (Fly Boy) refuses to eat fungus. The second is vanilla bean creme brulee which is made at my favorite restaurant on the Outer Banks. So while I have tried to make it.....just cannot match it!
I just love food so this is another hard favorite thing to eat, bar none, is asparagus. Love it, love it, LOVE it! And I can easily make it. Another favorite is sushi. I definitely CANNOT make that at home, (yes I know some of you brave folks make your own sushi - I don't)! And not all sushi is good, as I've learned the hard way.

4. What is you favorite charity? Why is it important to you?

The American Cancer Society and the Susan G. Komen For the Cure Foundation. I have had so many close family members and friends afflicted with cancer (especially breast cancer).
Locally, The Westport School of Music. Nationally, The Nature Conservancy. Unless we have the earth around us, none of the other stuff makes any sense. There won't be anything to save if we don't save the land of our earth. I will now get off my soapbox!

5. If you were stranded on an island, what 5 things would you have to 
have with you?

A picture of my family (including my dog).
A pot to boil water and/or cook in.
A glass to use for starting fire and drinking the water I purified in the pot.
A knife for cutting, killing and/or surviving what might be on the island.
Something to help keep me warm and/or protect me from the elements....I would say Fly Boy but he gets very cranky when he is hot, tired or hungry so guess a blanket would work better. Could also use it to create shelter. I do not think Fly Boy would make a good tarp to protect me from rain.

1. Kleenex - As all who know me are aware of, I need copious amounts of kleenex always as my nose is running running running always...(and never wins the race). Blah!
2. Nurse Nancy, up there, is much too practical...MUCH too practical...anywho #2 for me - the GPS signal in my cell phone. What?? That's cheating??? Who on God's green earth travels without a cell phone in this day and age???
3. I'll take the pot, knife and glass. Those seem like very good ideas, but I'm lumping them all together. 
4. Sunscreen, lots of sunscreen. I have very delicate skin, you know, very delicate and I must have means to protect it! 
5. Make-up and air-brushing, because this just has to be some kind of reality show and I really do need to look my best. 

expect anything!
