Things you are dying to know about me.

(Or maybe not.) But, anyways, I stole these questions from Andy at Wild ARS Chase because they remind me of a glorified and somewhat more sophisticated MySpace survey. (You know, the ones written by high schoolers that I shamefully fill out and annoy my friends with when I'm bored.) So here goes:

1.) Who is the person you admire most and why?
I actually have a whole list of people I admire, in no particular order:
  1. My Grandmas - both of them - because they essentially raised me.
  2. My Mother - because even though I never got a chance to really know her the way that people talk about her and how lovely a person she was makes me want to be a better person myself.
  3. My BFF - she has had to deal with a lot in the past couple of years including the sudden death of her only serious bf who she had been dating for over 10 years. The fact that she can even get out of bed everyday let alone accomplish the things she has accomplished since then makes my dating troubles seem oh so silly and really inspires me.
  4. Lauren Conrad - true she didn't have to do much to get picked to do Laguna Beach, but the fact that she has capitalized on that fortune to create not only The Hills spinoff, but a fashion label and basically a brand is amazing. I mean she might just have lucked out, but good for her. Also I think she is classy and beautiful, and she has slept with Brody Jenner - and that is reason enough for my admiration.
  5. Wallis Simpson - a twice divorced American woman who finally found her prince charming despite King Edward VII of England having to abdicate the throne to marry her. Can you imagine having the hatred of an entire country focused on you because you want to marry a King and then you don't even get to become the freakin' queen. (Thankfully this will likely not be the case when Prince William proposes to me.)
2.) If you could have one superhero power, what would it be and why? Hmmmm.... I think I would want mind reading powers so that I could finally figure out what guys are thinking... but like every "super" power I'm sure that would get annoying and take all the "fun" out of the disaster that is my dating career. I probably don't want to know what they are thinking anyways.

3.) If you absolutely had to give up one thing you loved what would it be and why?
Like Andy, I have certain things I cherish that I could never give up like my iPhone, my BFFs, my family, alcohol and ice cream. I guess if I had to give up something it would be Rockband. True, I would miss hitting the "world tour" with BFF and utilizing my sweet drum skills, but I would also be less of a nerd and get more sleep at night.

4.) If you weren't in the career you are in now what would you be doing?
This is easy. If I wasn't practicing law I would probably still be into Social Work. I'm a sucker for needy and disadvantaged people. In fact I plan on finding a new pro-bono project to work on this Spring.

5.) If you could choose anywhere in the world to go where would it be and why? I really need to get back to Europe. I haven't been since circa 1997. I need to go to Paris, and Rome for sure. Those are #1 and #2 on my list.
