  1. I agree wholeheartedly - "Egotism and lack of consideration. Ok, that's two"
    Actually they're kinda one and the same.

  2. haha. Quite right! :)

    I'm sure enjoying reading these. :)

  3. I always enjoy reading these things about our friends!!!! I have to admit I would answer similar to most of these excepting my season would be winter and for most of the time I am a kaalvoetklonkie. Excepting winter where you might get me into socks inside if very cold and big comfy boots outside! And yes I walk barefoot here in summer on these flagstones and I have been known to walk barefoot in the Bethlehem winter frost too! :-) Shoes are always a last resort because they make me feel genuinely and completely claustrophobic! Plus much to everyones amusement I drive barefoot (have no idea how to drive with shoes on, because I have no feeling of the pedals then). I have also been known to leave friends homes without my shoes and arrive at the school for parent teacher meetings an forgot to put my shoes on so I keep a pair of slip slops in the car always! One of the things I love about here. Sandals or anything slip slop are completely ok even in the most formal of occasions and u take your shoes off when u enter a house! My idea of paradise (only for my feet though - the rest they can keep!) My family usually call to me whenever I go out don't forget shoes Mom... One of those inexplicable things! :-)

  4. I love these things.

  5. You're quite nice really ;)

  6. My dream vacation is home in the summer (where I grew up) wading in the icy Lake Superior waters or even swimming,,It's beautiful..winter somewhere warm and tropical.
    I'd try it but I'm a bit tired to think of all the answers, Enjoyed reading yours though

  7. Me too! :D We really really really hope to buy a home in the Keweenaw (or close to it) eventually.

  8. I went swimming in Lake Superior at Black River Harbor in the U.P. years ago. It was cold, but such a neat experience! The water was deep and the swells were moderate.

    It was fun to learn all these things about you, Tint!
