Wow - My copy/paste actually worked!!

General GTKY…
1. Where do you live?
Beautiful, scenic New Jersey. And yes, there are beautiful sections of Jersey so stop laughing.
2. Are you married? How long?
Married 11 years this past March but together over 15.
3. Do you have any children? Ages?
We have one beautiful DD together, aged 9. I have 3 stepdaughters (30, 21, and 19) and one GD, 6.
4. Do you have any pets?
Oh honey, we have a house full. I recommend never marrying someone who is as big an animal lover as you. We have 3 dogs - 1 rescue Border Collie, 1 puggle (dumb as a brick), and one mutt from the shelter (part Australian Cattle dog and part hound dog we think). The last one is smart but all puppy and has a hard time controlling herself.
Let's not forget the kitties. We have 2 regular old housecats and have captured the ferral kittens that were birthed in the backyard of the abandoned house across the street. They have been living in our bedroom. DH keeps threatening to send them to the pound but he adores them and plays with the one all the time. The white one is coming around but the little black one is still very skittish. DD has named them so I believe that brings the total cat count to 4.
And let's not forget the hermit crabs. Last I checked, we had 4. That reminds me that I need to clean their cage. Hmm, maybe tonight. So is it any wonder that DD wants to be a veterinarian.

5. What do you do for a living? Work? Stay at home?
We have reversed roles in our home. DH is disabled and is the SAHD. Of course they found out at school that he can fix, repair or build anything so he is there frequently "volunteering".
I work in the financial services industry as a Compliance Officer for the Commodities Trading Division for a large foreign bank.

6. What is your favorite movie?
The Wizard of Oz.
7. What is your favorite book?
Hmm, not really sure I have a favorite. I like romance novels because I have a long train ride and they let me zone out. I like the Sookie Stackhouse series (True Blood). I also have gotten into the numerous vampire series that are popping up all over. Well, except for Twilight. Do I really care about teenage angst???
8. What is/are your favorite TV show(s)?
House, House and more House. DH loves this show so it is on constantly. We watch NCIS, the Mentalist, Monk. Guess you can see a pattern here.
9. What is your favorite food?
Anything chocolately or sweet.
10. What type of music do you listen to? Do you have a favorite group/singer/band etc.?
I'm a Jersey girl so obviously I love The Boss (Springsteen for those that don't know), U2, and Pink.
11. Where did you do your schooling from?
Got my BA from Drew University in Madison, NJ and my MBA from LaSalle University in Philly.
12. Do you like sports? What's your favorite football team?
I don't really watch professional sports any more. I don't have the time.
13. How many siblings do you have?
2 sisters, one older and one younger.
14. Did you always want to be a XXX? (your profession)
I still haven't figured out what I want to be when I grow up. I'll keep you posted though.
15. What do you like to do in your spare time?
Who has spare time?? Seriously though I volunteer at DD's school as much as possible and I'm a GS leader. And we love to travel to Disney.
16. Any interesting places that you've traveled to lately?
We did the Eastern Carribbean cruise earlier in the year and loved it.
17. Any particular cuisines or dishes that you like the most?
Eggplant and scallops but not at the same time.
18. What is your attitude when it comes to money? Are you a spender or a saver?
I like to be a saver but somehow always end up a spender. I've got to work on that.
19. What does your name mean?
No idea and I'm too lazy to Wiki.
20. When is your birthday?
September 26th but you're not getting the year!!
21. What is your zodiac sign?
That makes me a Libra.
22. What are your preferences when it comes to clothes and fashion?
Now that I've lost weight I love to shop. Ann Taylor Loft is my favorite.
23. Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
I'd probably say introvert but after answering this I certainly feel quite extroverted. Is that a word?
24. Are you an outdoors person?
Yep. Love to camp and hike.
25. Are you an adventurous person by nature or do you prefer playing it safe?
Somewhat on the safe side but more adventerous than DH.
26. How was your childhood like?
Sweet. DM was a SAHM. GM lived with us. We camped every summer in ME and loved it.
27. Post a recent picture of yourself.... Hmm, let's see if I can copy that from the other thread.

Alison is a given name for a female. It was originally a medieval Norman nickname for Alice, meaning "truth," "noble,"[1] or "noble type."


Jeffrey is a common English name. It is most commonly spelled as Jeffrey, but sometimes spelled with one f as in Jefrey. The name Geoffrey is the precursor to Jeffrey, and Godfrey in turn a precursor to that, from the German "Gottfried," meaning "God's peace" or "Divine peace."

Hi, everyone! I am so glad to see you've accomplished what I tried a little while ago. I do think we may see others posting here on a thread that is a bit less overwhelming.

As for introductions,

I am Cam and my DH is Howard. We are doing this cruise without our DD21 and DS16 as both will be in the midst of preparing for finals (college and high school). We are travelling in connecting cabins with our dear friends Judy and Charlie. Howard and I have done the Magic Western 2 times previously and Eastern once. We have also sailed on the Wonder twice. We love Disney cruises!

Looking forward to getting to know everyone better in the next month.

General GTKY…

Just celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary last friday.

3. Do you have any children? Ages?
3 kids, 10 year old girl, 7 year old boy, 5 year old girl.

4. Do you have any pets?
A dog that was a pkg deal with my husband. I'm so evil--I'm NOT a dog person--she's 13 and I joke that it will be just my luck to be the owner of the Guiness Book of World Records "oldest dog". I have a cat--Swiper--who I adore. I can't help it--I'm a cat person not a dog person.

5. What do you do for a living? Work? Stay at home?
I'm a stay at home mom but all my kids go to school now.

6. What is your favorite movie?
Princess Bride. I don't typically like kids' movies but I'm dying for Where the Wild Things Are. If it's half as good as the trailers make it looks it might be my new favorite

7. What is your favorite book?
A Trip to the Stars by Nicholas Christopher.

8. What is/are your favorite TV show(s)?
My favorite ever is 6 Feet Under, then Freaks and Geeks. I watch Desperate Housewives every week as well as Grey's Anatomy. I love to hate the shows that follow those too--Private Practice and Brothers and Sisters. We're watching Weeds through Netflix right now.

9. What is your favorite food?
Cheesecake?

10. What type of music do you listen to? Do you have a favorite group/singer/band etc.?
I mostly listen to hippie music--Grateful Dead tops it all. Spent years of my life following Phish. Most likely to end up on the digital audio player these days: Wilco or Radiohead...I do branch out a bit and consider my musical taste pretty diverse.

11. Where did you do your schooling from?
Went to three different colleges for undergrad and graduated from Goddard College. Went back and got my MA there as well.

12. Do you like sports? What's your favorite football team?
Not big on sports EXCEPT I'm a total freak for professional baseball--Go Red Sox (or NOT this year anymore ) IF I HAD to pick a football team I'd be a Patriots fan but honestly I despise football.

13. How many siblings do you have?
Just Steph!

14. Did you always want to be a XXX? (your profession)
I always wanted to be a stay at home mom. I want a job in software testing but I have no experience and my degree is in Philosophy of Education. When my kids are bigger I'll pursue homebirth midwifery--my TRUE passion.

15. What do you like to do in your spare time?
Listen to music, see live music, play on the computer, bike, canoe...???

16. Any interesting places that you've traveled to lately?
We did DC this summer and we had a BLAST!!!

I tend towards Mediterranean flavors:feta, olives, sundried tomatoes...I love good Thai food but in VT that's an oxymoron it seems...

18. What is your attitude when it comes to money? Are you a spender or a saver?
Neither. I'm afraid of money. I try really hard to ignore it.

19. What does your name mean?
It means I'm a female born in the mid 70's

20. When is your birthday?
Feb 1

21. What is your zodiac sign?

To wear what's comfortable. If I had to shop at only one store for the rest of my life it'd be a sporting goods store even though I'm not the least bit sporty.

23. Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
Very introverted but I've learned the skills of an extrovert over the years--still really wears me out though.

24. Are you an outdoors person?
Somewhat. I like to snowboard, take easy hikes with the kids, canoe, sail, bike, garden...but I'm not a super outdoorsy type either.

25. Are you an adventurous person by nature or do you prefer playing it safe?
Depends. I'm a nervous nelly but I love new experiences too...

26. How was your childhood like?
Excellent. I hated school but home was good.

SHELLEY

Gender: Feminine & Masculine
Usage: English Pronounced: SHEL-ee [key]

From a surname which was originally derived from a place name meaning "clearing on a bank" in Old English. Two famous bearers of the surname were Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822), a romantic poet whose works include 'Adonais' and 'Ozymandias', and Mary Shelley (1797-1851), his wife, the author of the horror story 'Frankenstein'. As a feminine given name, it came into general use after the 1940s.

Jennifer is a female given name; it became a common first name for females in English-speaking countries during the 20th century. The name Jennifer is a Cornish variant of Guinevere,[1] which is a Norman-derived Middle English form of the Old Welsh Gwenhwyfar (gwen: white, fair + hwyfar: smooth, soft).[2] Despite the name's similarity to the Old English words jenefer, genefer and jinifer, which were all variants of Juniper and used to describe the juniper tree,[3] there is no evidence that it was derived from these.[citation needed]
The name has been in use since the 18th century.[1] Before 1906 the name was fairly uncommon, but it became popular after George Bernard Shaw used it for the main female character in The Doctor's Dilemma.[citation needed] It gained even more popularity in the 1970s. Though its popularity is often attributed to the novel and film Love Story,[citation needed] Jennifer was already the number 3 name given to baby girls in the United States in 1969, the year before the book and movie were released. Jennifer was the single most popular name for American girls from 1970 to 1984.[4] It is also popular for Hispanic females. Since the early 1990s it has remained common, but considerably less so. Diminutives include Jen (Jenn), Jenny (Jennie, Jenni), and Jenna.
In contrast, "Guinevere" itself is at present a rather rare first name, considered "old-fashioned" - a fate shared with "Lancelot" and other Arthurian names (except for that of Arthur himself, still very common and popular).
The protagonist in the 1938 novel "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day" is very self-conscious about being named "Guinevere", which goes along with her being depicted as an unworldly curate's daughter who wears old-fashioned clothing and is very confused and intimidated by the world of 1930's London.

I'm here too!

Erin,
I never noticed your favorite food is pierogies. You would do well in my town as its quite Polish. We even have Polish priests. The older ladies at church get together and make pierogies and sell them after mass. The younger ones are only allowed to pinch the dough closed. You are never allowed to be part of the "secret recipe" group if you're under 60. We just had a whole conversation on pierogies at school last night and where to get the best ones.

I've got a friend that's lived in town all her life. She's pushing 50, actively involved in town and church. And she is still only allowed to "pinch". Guess she hasn't proven herself yet.
