I never realized that I held unforgiveness against someone. I was 22 years old and it really was a silly interaction between me and a well-known woman in the world of social services where I was starting my career. There was a group of us social services people at a table to brainstorm or talk about a particular topic when I made a comment about my growing up with a certain group of people.

1. N is for NAEVUS: Do you have a birthmark? If so, and you can share in mixed company, where is it located?
I do have a birthmark. It’s on the outside of my right thigh. It’s a brown, perfectly round birthmark. My best friend growing up had one on the inside of the thigh just like mine.
2. N is for NATATORIUM: Do you own a swimming pool? If not, have you always wished you did?
I have never lived in a home with a swimming pool, but I have lived in apartment complexes with them. We have a pool at our apartment now, but I still haven’t been there in the year we’ve been here. I’m grateful we’ve never had to take care of a pool or had to deal with the cost.
3. N is for NEIGHBOR: Of your immediate neighbors, what percentage of them do you know by name?
I don’t know the name of any of my neighbors except for my parents and one neighbor, Dean, who is very gregarious. It’s just easier not to get to know them because they move or they are so loud that we have to report them.
4. N is for NERVOUS: How nervous do you tend to get? Do you stress out easily?
It depends on what I’m doing. If I’m speaking to a group or singing in front of them, then I get pretty nervous. There are times that I get stressed out because someone won’t listen to me or try to hear what I’m saying or I have too much on my plate.
5. N is for NOTES: When you want to take notes about something, do you prefer to write them on paper or type them electronically?
I prefer to write my notes the good old fashioned way…on paper, but I tend not to go back and re-read them. Writing them is a way to help me remember what I was listening too.
6. N is for NOVEL: What’s the name of the last novel you finished reading?
The last novel I finished reading was book two of a trilogy by Nora Roberts. It was called Shadow Spell.

Today (yesterday really) we are on the letter M with Patrick’s Place.
1. M is for MACROPHOBIA: How paranoid are you about having to sit for a long period of time in a doctor’s waiting room? Do you worry you’ll catch something from sick people in the room with you?
I think occasionally while I’m in the doctor’s office I get a little freaked out by being with people that are visibly ill.
2. M is for MAGNITUDE: What’s the strongest earthquake you’ve ever experienced?
Funny that this should come up because we are going to California in May and I’m hoping that I’ll get to experience an earthquake. I lived in Connecticut and there are very minor quakes there, but I never have felt one.
3. M is for MAMMAL: Not counting people, what’s your favorite mammal?
My favorite mammal is a cat. I really love having a cat or cats in the house. They make life so much more interesting.
4. M is for MATURE: If you had to pick a general age at which you think the majority of young people today are mature enough to make their own decisions, which age would you choose?
I think the general age at which the majority of young people are mature enough to make their own decisions is 18 years old, however, they think they should be allowed to make their own decisions at a much younger age.
5. M is for MINGLE: How good are you at mingling in a room full of strangers in a social setting?
While I’ll talk once I get to know you a little bit, I’m pretty shy when meeting people and an introvert. I’m not a good mingler alone.
6. M is for MOPED: If you lived close enough to work to use a moped, what would be the biggest obstacle for you to use it as your primary transportation there?
