I have yet to grow up - but I know it had to do with being creative - at one point I remember singing in my room (I was probably 8 years old) to Willie Nelson doing a duet with Julio Iglasis "To All The Girls I've Loved Before" - and thinking one day I'd be on Star Search performing...
03. What talent do you wish you had? music - I'd love to be able to play the piano

Great answers! I'll have to do this soon. I love meme's and haven't done one in ages. I agree, losing my mom was the worst thing that has ever happened to me. I can related to you on your dad.

Here go my answers...it will be a bit generic to other blogs, since the questions are the same apart from some:

01. Can you cook? - Yup!

02. What was your dream growing up? - Of what I wanted to become? If that's the case, then the answer is palaeontologist.

03. What talent do you wish you had? - Real ones? To be more of a conversationalist, I guess. Otherwise, I'd love to be able to control the elements (yup, I'm a control-freak)

04. If I bought you a drink what would it be? - Either a glass of red wine or some fruity cocktail

05. Favorite vegetable? - Wait for it....spinach and brussel sprout

06. What was the last book you read? - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

07. What zodiac sign are you ? - Pisces with ascendant in Gemini

08. Any tattoos and/or piercings? - None whatsoever...those are the two things my parents explicitly ask me not to ever have done to myself. I don't like piercing anyway, and I reckoned that tattoo looks better on some hot men, but not on me. :-p

09. Worst habit? - Laziness and procrastination...okay, maybe my carelessness about money spending, too.

10. If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride? - If I had a car and were driving it, yes.

11. What is your favorite sport? - Sport? What sport? Horizontal tango? :-p Okay, I walk a lot.

12. Negative or optimistic attitude? - A good balance of both...but I tend on the negative side. Besides, I'm a Pisces: I usually end up in my own dream world and lost all contacts with reality.

13. What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me? - Try to struck up a convo with you...and I'll probably fish out my knitting and start knitting while talking.

14. Worst thing to ever happen to you? - Way too many to recount.

15. Tell me one weird fact about you. - I knit, crochet, spin....and I'm a hypocrite.

16. Do you have any pets? - Right now, no. But I had several dogs back home (they're all gone though).

17. What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly? - If you're a good friend, I would invite you in and ask what's going on. Although to be honest, I don't really like unexpected guests. On the other hand, if you were one of my Ex's, then you better duck fast.

18. What was your first impression of me? - Really no idea. I think the first time I got a comment from you on my blog, I thought: "Who the heck is Kyle?"

19. Do you think clowns are cute or scary? - They're bloody scary and shouldn't be allowed.

20. If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be? - Can I have two things? One: My nose, so that the nosetrils wouldn't be standing up. Two: My eyes, so that they'll be of the same size.

21. Would you be my crime partner or my conscience? - Definitely conscience.

22. What color eyes do you have? - Dark brown

23. Ever been arrested? - Not properly, but I stole some stuff from a department store in Singapore when I was seven. Got caught promptly by the store detective and got in LOADS of trouble for that.

24. Bottle or draft? - Excuse me? Are we talking about beer or something else? In that case, I don't really care, coz I don't really drink beer. (And I thought it's spelt "draught"??)

25. If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it? - Pay off my bloody credit card debt right away.

26. Would you date me? - Hun, I'm gay, besides, you're married with two kids in tow.

27. Where's your favorite place to hang out? - Somewhere well-lit, good coffee/beverages, comfy chairs, some music that's not too loud, and NO smoke...so that I can knit in peace. Prolly a knit-cafe.

28. Do you believe in ghosts? - I guess so, I don't want any proof though. Just leave me in peace, I believe in them...don't want to meet any. :-p

29. Favorite thing to do in your spare time? - LOL, are you kidding me? Knitting and spinning!

30. Do you swear a lot? - Not really. (NOT)

31. Biggest pet peeve? - Punctuality and honesty. Both of which I can't say always apply to myself. (see number 15 :-p)

32. In one word, how would you describe yourself? - Human

33. Do you believe in/appreciate romance? - Absolutely...I'm a total fool for romance (Pisces = Dreamland)...although after the escapade with my last 2 relationships, I'm being very careful about my feelings and don't open up that easily any more. Sad, actually.

34. If you could spend 12 hours with me and ask/do anything you like, what would it be? - We would probably end up talking...as long as I'm allowed to knit and spin while talking.

35. Do you believe in God? - Yes, although I'm not religious at all.

36. Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same? - Well, what am I doing here? Sheesh!

Whoops, forgot to change the answer in no. 26: No, I won't date you, since you're already in a happy relationship. I hate people who destroy other people's relationship to make it their own. Unless that relationship is totally unhappy anyway, and was falling apart already. It's kind of hard to explain, but I had been cheated on in the last 2 relationships, with the first one ending up "marrying" the guy who he cheated on me with. Those things leave marks on you.

Just caught up on your posts. I hope your friend is able to untangle that mess (been there, unraveling a sweater and not winding the ball as I go, ick) and I'm glad he's still enjoying the knitting.

And thanks for posting the photo of your cats. They are beautiful and you both must enjoy them so much!
