I have been absolutely man (or should that be girl) down this week. Unfortunately I had to go to work but spent most of my home time asleep. This morning I  finally admitted I needed antibiotics and went to the doctor and to be honest after only 1 dose I am feeling better already. My computer has hardly been on since Monday! Anyway here are my answers to the questions this week, which I really enjoyed.

1. If you had $1,000 to donate to a charity, which would you choose?
Probably the (human) childrens home where I adopted our kitten from, since they are seriously underfunded and need so much. Otherwise it would have to be the SPCA.


2. Snow days: Do you welcome them happily or are they a pain in your butt?
Well, I would actually love a snow day. It never gets cold enough to snow. In fact the last time it snowed in Durban was in 1933 and there is even some doubt as to whether it was actually snow! We just have BOILING HOT, EXTREMELY HOT, Very hot, Hot, or Warm weather lol. Add in extremely humid and you have some idea of the sauna like conditions that are our summer. As for winter well that is the best time of the year. Sunny, dry days where it often gets up to 24-25C in the daytime and usually only goes down to about 15 at night. Coldest is about 5-6 and that is maybe once per winter. I have experienced snow a few times in other places, but my daughter who has just turned 13 has NEVER seen snow. I would love for her to experience it. Although it does snow in various places fairly near here we have never been there when it snowed. When I was in the UK I loved the snow, but I must admit when everything shuts down for a few days it does get a bit tiring.

3. What talent did you wish you had and why?
I wish I could draw/paint. I am fairly creative but cannot draw at all. When Brenda was small she used to say: "Draw nicely mummy" So that tells you my drawing ability. With scrapping/cardmaking it would definitely be useful to draw a bit more than a stick figure!

4. Are you a news, politics or celebrity gossip junkie?
Actually none of them but if I had to choose I would say news. I rarely watch TV and watch the news even less rarely. I do listen to the radio on the way to work and it is on most of the time in the house. I find politics boring and celebrity gossip I can take or leave. I do read the internet news on my home page and also find reading some of the comments enjoyable, although sometimes frustrating.

5. What is your favorite "cocktail"? (Are you a beer person, a kiddie cocktail junkie, or perhaps your more the "Cosmo" kind?! Anything flies...doesn't hafta be alcoholic!)
Ahem, My name is Tracy and I am a coke addict! Although I used to drink a lot of things over the years it has come to pass that my favourite drink is coke, and I would choose that over everything else except perhaps coffee. I do like Strawberry Daiquiri, and as far as shooters go I like a Blow Job (excuse the name) which is Kahlua, Cape Velvet (bit like Baileys) and Cream. I also like Dom Pedro, which is Kahlua, Cape Velvet and icecream made into a milkshake. But all in all, my favourite drink is still coke!

My husband tries to tell me that Coke and Pepsi taste the same all the time so Coke shouldn't be my favorite. LOL
