for the one and only time...

I am going to do one of those surveys that my good friend Megan sent me, mostly for something to post because I can't think of any pressing issues/events to write about. So, here goes:

7. WHAT FOOD DO YOU DISLIKE? Raisins and anything that looks like a raisin (prunes, dates, etc.)

8. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CD? I can't really answer this because I am a music snob.
9 WHAT KIND OF CAR DO YOU DRIVE? A 1996 Toyota Corolla, standard transmission. It is the Car of the Librarian

16. WHERE WOULD YOU RETIRE TO? I would retire here in Victoria, but hopefully on a bit of land where it's quiet
17. WHAT WAS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE BIRTHDAY? I don't enjoy my birthday much, so I don't know and I don't really care. Actually, perhaps the one when the Deet and Jennie-Lynne bought me my first Leafs jersey. And the one where Caitlin bought me my second one. Yeah, those two tied for first

21. PERSON YOU EXPECT TO SEND IT BACK FIRST? The first comment on it will come from either Jimmy or Jess.
22. FAVORITE SAYING? I have so many that it is impossible to say. Why don't you tell me what your favourite saying of mine is...

31 WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FLOWER? I don't have one because I am not a girl.
32. WHAT IS A DAY ON THE CALENDAR YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO? My retirement day, whenever that is. Also, the day the Leafs finally win a Cup for me (if it actually ever happens--I am not holding my breath).
