Impossible wish

For everyone I love (including my furry children) to live until the same day and all of us die instantly (living forever would suck) so that none of us would have to live through losing anyone.

Completely Reasonable Wishlist

A transforming yellow Camaro with the personality and speed of Bumblebee, a big house on a beach that is never in danger of hurricanes with houses surrounding mine for all my friends and family members, enough money to never have to worry about money, my own ice arena, my own private plane to be able to fly my students around on “field trips,” biological genius that will allow me to cure cancer and Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (what Shadow has), the ability to eat whatever I want and never gain weight, and enough stock in the television networks to prevent them from cancelling my favorite shows.

Favorite Activities

Playing with my four furry children: Buffy, (tiny, fluffy Maltese/Shih Tzu dog) Shadow,(gigantic, handsome tuxedo cat), Ronan (enormous white german shepherd), and Kara (sleek black lab/shepherd/rescued mutt of some kind) .

Favorite Quotations

“To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child a garden patch or redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have  succeeded.”–debatable, but commonly attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson”Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets.” —Arthur Miller”You are exactly my brand of heroin.” -Twilight“Now, it is the view of the Ministry that a theoretical knowledge will be more than sufficient to get you through your examination, which, after all, is what school is all about.”
–the brilliant educational mind of Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
