1. I'm always amazed by your artistic work. And I love the way you smile like you're not quite going to and then you do. (:
2. Is the entire Beatles songbook an answer? Also the Indigo Girls' eponymous album -- you introduced me to their music.
3. Go fondle books in a library or bookstore. Play with puppets (I have some cool patterns for them). Talk about fabric.
4. Milk can never be chewed.
5. A few days after we first met, you were wearing a yellow shirt and had a migraine. I ran into you while running library errands and helped you find the clinic, where the clinic aide offered you some saltines and a Tylenol.

1. I like your hair and your emotional strength.
2. Anytime I hear reggaeton, I think of you.
3. We should sew together and make some fun stuff for your house.
4. Hide the wine!
5. I remember seeing one of your boys at Taste Addison and thinking, "Hey, that looks like one of Trish's sons"... and then there you were! I was so excited -- a little tipsy from those hurricanes from the Truluck's booth, too -- and thought you looked very different without the iPod in your userpic.

7. How did you end up in Dallas?

My husband, fiance at the time, and I lived in New Orleans. He was job hunting while we were getting ready to get married. As the casino I had worked in was closing down, we were ready for a move. The pay in New Orleans, even in tech, is pathetic. Scott got three job offers - one in Detroit (NO), on in NC (eh), and one here in Dallas.

We got married, went on a 2 week honeymoon, and immediately moved here.
