Tagged by my daughter

Thing 1, also known as The Magic Violinist, tagged me so now I am doing this blog activity. Here are the rules:

1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and then write eleven things about yourself.
3. Answer the questions for you in the original post.
4. Create eleven new questions and then tag three people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog and tell them you have tagged them.

1. I love being tagged on these things, because I love writing prompts.
2. I would love to blog daily, but finding the time feels nearly impossible.
3. I have visited 13 states on 3 different trips in the past 30 days.
4. I love home educating my children.
5. I very much enjoy hosting house guests.
6. The Big Bang Theory is my favorite recent TV show find.
7. Ralph Waldo Emerson and Martin Luther King, Jr. are two of my historical heroes.
8. I am a big John Cusack fan.
9. Boston, DC, and NYC are 3 of my favorite cities. I've visited all 3 in the past month.
10. I like Brussel Sprouts.
11. I don't like marinara sauce.

1. What is your favorite color and why? Blue, because it's calming and pretty.
2. What is your favorite book and why? Rebecca, because it's captivating and a Gothic novel.
3. What is your favorite movie and why? You've Got Mail, because it's fun, light, simple, about a bookstore, and has Meg Ryan in it.
4. What is your dream pet and why? Scout. I adore her. I have always liked monkeys, but ever since getting a puppy, I can't imagine getting a monkey!
5. What is your dream vacation and why? Beach house at the beach, because I love being by the ocean.
6. What is your favorite song and why? Pretty much anything from the 80s.
7. What do you daydream about? Different places to visit or live as well as different careers. Just for fun.
8. Who is your best friend and why? Mark, because he gets me, we love to talk, and we are happy doing just about anything together.
9. Is there a famous person you would love to meet? Why would you want to meet the person? Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Michael Bublé, JK Rowling, Christopher Lloyd (the creator of Frasier and Modern Family), Harry Connick, Jr., Chuck Lorre (creator of The Big Bang Theory), John Cusack -- all for many different reasons . . .
10. Do you sing in the shower? Sometimes, yes.
11. Do you ever think about doing something to change the world? If you do, what would you want to change? It could be a law or a different way of doing something. Yes, and I always have. I believe very strongly in equal and civil rights for all, so it's important to me to feel like part of the solution and not part of the problem. I would love to write a column, write books, and give speeches as part of a movement about which I feel passionate.
