Questions related to this post (you said you'd be ready :o):
1. is the picture in your blog you? You don't look half Korean, that's why I ask.
2. we had a Korean exchange student and we took him to a restaurant that has since closed; he introduced hubby to baggogi (SP) do you have a recipe? I think its some kind of beef dish. My hubby LOVED it and can't stop talking about it.
3. Why, pray tell, would you want ot live in Ohio? hehe I'm in MI and there's no love lost. :o)

That's all! I'll leave some room for others.

Terri - The picture in the blog is NOT me. That is a picture of Agnetha F. from the group ABBA, my favorite singing group. Last year I had a picture of John Mayer there. I do not have a recipe for bulgogi. You can find one if you go to Food Network. They have an Amercian version of one there. My mom does not share her recipe, but I hope to learn it this year. I want to live in Ohio because that's where my family is from - GO BUCKEYES!

I love Korean food too! It's my favorite food in the world. Galbi, Kum Tong. Yugaee (raw beef, pear and egg. I'm sure I'm misspelling stuff, sorry about that.

austere said...

hmm. no questions for now, that is.

Karin's Korner said...

Hmmmmm. I don't have any questions either. I DO want to commend you for donating your hair to Locks of Love, that is wonderful.

Great post: Thanks for sharing this. A few questions, please don't feel offended.
1: abbagirl74 (why 74)?
2: Which half are you Korean ? Top, bottom, north, south, mum , dad ? I'm half stupid, top half I think, though my wife would say bottom.
3: To help global warming cut down on the road trips.

PS: we are all going to die. So don't let it bug you.

Montidogeo - My mom is Korean. (74) is the year my best guy friend was born (he's the one who introduced me to ABBA). I have to go on the road trips for work mostly. And though I know that everyone is going to die, that is what bothers me. We have to. I am a control freak as well. I don't want to do anything unless I want to do it. And basically, I don't want to die.

this is a great post, billie. i love yellow too, and daffodils. i really hope i can meet you some day. peace, emily. (ps. i'd love to see a pic of you sometime!)

Cheryl said...

Great list. It's given me a better 'picture' of you. I could comment on almost every 'thing'. I like the dirt collection. Do you display it? You're tall! #35 cracks me up. Etc...I'll have to come back here to see more questions and answers.

Andfre said...

Great list!

I don’t have too many questions, but will try a couple.

1) Do you or your son have contact with his father; if so how's that, if not why not? (pretty personal question aint it? As a divorced father myself that's what strikes me as interesting)

2) why are you scared of clowns? I know it sounds cool and I have a friend who is scared of clowns, or at least he says he is. Wait, that "friend" might be Kramer from Seinfeld now that I think about it...nevermind!!

3) what does C.A.V.U. mean? If I was afraid of being thought of as stupid I'd google it myself, but I'd like you to tell me!

That's it for my questions.

I like Korean food too, although I've only had it 3 or 4 times ever. I dated a Japanese girl for 3 years until recently and she was into Korean food for some reason, maybe partly because she dated a Korean guy once or maybe merely because it's Asian food and she would crave Asian food regardless of what part of Asia it hailed from - still, we only went a few times but I enjoyed. Mostly we'd go have Vietnamese instead.

I love zombie movies also, although I've seen way more scary movies tht are not specifically zombie-ish. The Resident Evil movies are two of my favourite because they mix zombies, science fiction, and babes kicking ass. They are not as scary at all but I think they are cool.

It's excellent you know your parents are proud of you. Sometimes it can be hard to tell, but I think it's easier for us to know this once we've been out of their hair for 10 years or so. I think my parents are proud of me, not that I've done much of anything, but I am a proud papa :)

Terri said...

oh no, no, no - GO WOLVERINES! :o) Thanks for the insight on Bulgogi and answering my pics, you sure opened yourself up there.

One more question - ever seen the Mamma Mia show? It sounds wonderful (I'm a closet Abba fan).

Terri said...

pics???? I'm mean q's!!!

I'm still asleep this morning.

Ah, I see several reason listed why we should be friends. I loooove Kim Chee! My husband can't get over the smell. I even have a kim chee eating buddy. I have to eat it when he's not around. He calls me a a "Stinky Kim chee eater" affectionately, like I call the cat a "dirty bag licker", not sure why that cat likes plastic so much, Anyhoo, have fun! :)

Fear of clowns is called "Coulrophobia" is quite common. I would speculate that the fear stems from the deceptiion. Someone parading around as a harmless, "masked" character with a permenent, fixed smile. Instincts tell us something is wrong about that and if you've heard of John W. Gacy, then doubly so! (He killed 33 boys and posed as a clown in the 1970's)

Andfre said...

Yeah - I did hear of Gacy.
So the question is then, why are there clowns in this world? Who likes them? I dont see clowns raking in a lot of cash, so why do they do it? Okay the more I think about it the more creeped out I get. The only good clowns I've seen are rodeo clowns - at least they serve a purpose.

Christina said...

Thanks for the list... and the inspiration. I'll have to get started on one of my own!!
