Spotlight of the Week - berylayn! - Page 2

post #31 of 54
Thanks Sam! You got two new ones which I'd be more than happy to answer.

What colors do you plan on having in your new house?


Ugh I have been struggling with this for quite awhile...I am not exactly sure what to do. I know my office will be painted red. I have always wanted a 'red room' because red is my absolute favorite color. I don't think I could stand to have red in like the family room or bedroom, so it will be saved for my office.

My kitchen I plan to have deep blue accents...blue and white I think.

Family room - NO CLUE, maybe a green of some sort.

Any decorators out there that want to help me design my new rooms?

Do you prefer house plants or a garden?

I prefer a garden. I don't have much of a green thumb. I imagine I'd be able to take care of a garden much easier. I think it would be awesome to have a stone patio and garden in my backyard.

Sarah -- I love your signature...Tibby and Molly both look so sweet and cozy!

What was your first computer?

OMG - something with like 3 colors that was really slow. I remember having like wordperfect 3.1 or something insane and all that would run was DOS there was no Microsoft back then. My parents bought that when I was like 7.

Which is your favourite Beanie Baby?

That is a tough one!! I collected too many. I think all of my bears are very special to me. I remember going to England and Ireland with my family when I was in HS and we spent half our time going into shops searching for the "Princess Diana" bear and the "Shamrock" bear. We ended up coming home with both. I also have this tye-dye "Garcia" bear which used to be quoted to be worth some money. We never sold it though.

What do you think it your best quality as a teacher?

Hard question. I have a lot of people tell me I am patient, but I don't see it a lot of the time. So others may says patience. I would say organization. Most days I tend to be VERY organized. If you have your lessons and paperwork organized, working with the kids can be your top priority.

What is your favourite item of clothing?

My blue jeans. I wish I could wear them everyday. Blue jeans are the item of clothing I am alway super picky about and will pay loads of money for.

I also love my College of Willam and Mary hooded sweatshirt. It represents my alma mater and its just so big and comfy and warm!

Do you have a holiday/vacation planned for this year? If so, where?

I wish!!! I went to New York during Xmas time. I think that is my one vacation. Money is tight with buying this house. I really want to go out to California soon. Brendan has never been and I think he needs to experience seeing the West Coast.

1.- That Moments included drink Tequila?... Have you ever try Tequila? Like it?

mmmmmmm, I love tequila! 'Tequila sunrises' are good. I can't think of other drink i've had with tequila, but I know I have had many.


2.- Can you ride A bicycle? do you have one?


Yes, I CAN ride a bike. But I do not have one. I would love to get a bike again one day. Its such good and fun excercise.

3.- Do you like the pasta?

Pasta is good too. I love just about anything involving food.

4.- If you can travel the time wich age you choose and why?

I already answered that one the other day. I would go back to Greek/Roman times. I spent a lot of time in HS learning about all the crazy rulers back then. I would've been interesting to experience it.

Can't remember the name of the shopping center (it's one of the little strip malls).
I did find their site, which has a page with a map/directions:

Wow! I didn't think that "Member Spotlight" is still going on. Cool!!

Here is my question.

What country would you like to live in, except the country where you live right now?
post #38 of 54
What country would you like to live in, except the country where you live right now?[/quote]

I am thinking the UK - only because I have visited and I loved the time I spent there. But as for where in the UK I have no clue -- I'd need some direction for some of my TCS friends. I am not a very wordly traveler so I have no idea where else I would want to live.
post #39 of 54
Cool, you'd like to live in the UK!! I think you would like the Wirral, it's near beaches (for what they're worth??) and the sea and close to Liverpool and Chester!!

Here are my questions, if they have been asked before, then ignore them!!

What is your favourite book?

What is your favourite film?

If you were to go to a desert island, what three inanimate objects would you need to have?

Do you enjoy boat rides?

post #41 of 54
Thanks for the info Sarah! I'll let you know when I plan to move over there.


What is your favourite book?

oooo, i love to read when I have the time. I don't know that I have a favorite. There a so many genres out there and I like to get caught up in so many different types of stories.

I guess one of my more recent favorites was a book called "I know this much is true" by Wally lamb. It was about two twin brothers, one who had sczophrenia and lived in a mental hospital and the other who was his primary caretaker as I believe he was the only family left living. It was on of those books I had a very hard time putting down.


What is your favourite film?

Hmmmm, I am really much of a movie person, so I don't really have a favorite movie. I like to watch romantic comedies though. I really like 'Love Actually' which was released last year sometime I think.

If you were to go to a desert island, what three inanimate objects would you need to have?

Ack so hard!!!!! I'll say:

1) a toothbrush
2) a lighter - for fire
3) a boat (with a full tank of gas)

Do you enjoy boat rides?

Hahaha, I enjoy them when I am not seasick. I tend to get boat sick if I look over the edge too long.
post #42 of 54
I love this member spotlight -- I think I have gotten know many many members much better through this!

1.- Wich is your Favourite film of Science Fiction (Do you like that Gender?)

Well I don't watch a whole lot of movies. Especially Sci Fi. I wish I had a better answer for you, but i don't.


2.- Do you have brothers? ( I mean Family)


I am fortunate to have my mom and day and younger sister live only about 20 minutes away. We are very close and I am happy to have them live so near to me!

3.- Wich place in the world would you like to meet (I mean if you have the money to visit )

I would LOVE to visit Israel, or Australia or Italy one of these days. Although I hate airplanes so I don't know if Australia is in my near future (its like a 17 hour plane ride from here!!)

4.- Choose one Sunrise or Sunset and say why...

Sunrise....I am a morning person. I love to see the sun come up. Its so quiet and peaceful and serene.

Ok so I was totally not ignoring your question. I have just been spending 2 days trying to figure out how to answer it. I have been lucky enough to not have had a true near death expericence. But I guess I do have one story from HS gym class that kinda sucks that I can share.

Lemme just preface this by saying that in HS I was one of the least atletic people ever. I hated gym class. I avoided doing anything if possible. One day however, I got stuck helping to set up volleyball equipment with a few other people. Our vollyball nets were attached to these huge poles with metal bases that weighed about 200 lbs. These poles had to be rolled and then lifted onto gymnastics mats because our gym teachers did not want their precious floors scratched.

So I am assisted in this set up endeavor not by doing the heavy lifiting but by carrying the net to keep in out of the way. Well of course the pole was not attached to the base correctly and while the 2 other set up people were trying to lift the pole and base onto the mat the base came unscrewed from the pole and fell on both of my legs.

Just thinking about that feeling now when it fell on both of my legs still makes me cringe. I thought I was never going to walk again. I came close to passing out, the pain was so unbearable. Fortunately two broken feet and 7 years later I am ok.

Not really near death but a sucky experiene nonetheless.

Ouch! That's just the sort of story I'm was looking for...something where it all turned out fine but was, I'm sure, very exciting (not using this word in the positive sense, of course) at the time. I'll save mine for if/when I'm ever the "spotlight member of the week" lol. Glad to hear you're ok!

post #50 of 54
Sorry I have not been on the ball with this spotlight stuff -- I 've had two REALLY busy/hectic days. Ok let's see here...


1.- In your own opinion wich is the best breed of cats?

Well I enjoy my domestic shorthair just fine I've never really investigated breeds too much but I'm convinced Ebony has alot of Bombay in her, so I'm gonna have to go with Bombay for now.

2.- Can you drive a Car? do you have one? wich brand?
I LOVE to drive. I have driven since the first day I turned 16 and could use my license. I just bought a brand new car this past summer. I currently am driving a 2004 Toyota Matrix XRS. I love it!

3.- Like cold or Warm weather?
Can I say I like in between weather. My favorite seasons are fall and spring -- not too hot, not too cold.

4.- Like the chocolates? wich brand is your favourite?
I like anything chocolate! I think my favorite chocolate bar however would have to be something like a Recees Peanut Butter Cup. I love chocolate mixed with peanut butter the best.

post #54 of 54
oooooooo, gotta answer my last set of questions before I pass the ball to someone else tomorrow!

1.- Do you like the Disco Music of the 70´s?

hmmm, not a big 70's fan. I am a product of the 80's and 90's so I listen to more recent music.


2.- What are the thing more crazy that you do... I mean Jump bungie or Jump in parachute...


Can I chicken out and say neither. I am not very adventurous and I HATE heights, but if I HAD to pick one I'd pick bungee jumping.

3.- Do you like the popcorn? you know how to cook corn?

Oh my gosh I love popcorn. Some nights I'll just pop myself a big bowl and call that dinner. So healthy...but I am a popcorn addict so i can't help it.

4.- What is thing that you most hate in the world..
Cheers!


I hate that I have to work so hard and I barely have time to devote to myself. I really wish I had more ME time.
