You're Beautiful

1) The first line is of this song is, "My life is brilliant." Using one word, describe your life. Ordinary

2) This is about a chance encounter between strangers in a crowd, specifically the subway. What "crowded place" were you most recently in? I was at the theater last night, watching a play

3) Near the very end of this song, James Blunt sings, "It's time to face the truth." Do you believe you face things head on? Or do you tend to deny or put off the unpleasant? I face things head on--get it over with!

4) James Blunt went to an all-boys school. Some educators recommend single-sex classrooms because they maintain girls just naturally approach subjects like math and science differently than boys do. Do you agree? I agree, although I think there is a place for mixed gender classes

5) Blunt put his father in charge of his finances. Income taxes are top of mind for many of us this time of year. Do you do your own taxes? Or do you go to an accountant or tax preparation service? I do my own

6) In 2005, the year this song was a hit, the sitcom How I Met Your Mother was also popular. Do you know how your parents met? they met at summer camp

7) 2005 is also the year Tom Cruise famously jumped on a sofa. Do you remember where he did this? Oprah

8) 2005 was also the year YouTube really took off. What's the last video you watched? I watched a Crash Course US History video

9) Random question ... Which of these high profile jobs would you enjoy more: head of General Motors, CEO of Apple or president of the New York Yankees? I think I'd like to be the CEO of Apple, it seems like a more creative environment

Not ordinary...only unique to you!

Your life can't be ordinary. No,no.
Since you are a teacher, it's time for the likes of me to re-examine the issue of all boy or all girl classes.
Apple sounds better and better the more of these I read.

Were your parents very young campers? Or were they older camp employees?

I used to do my own taxes and then we started farming and my mother left me an old house that we rent out and suddenly I had no idea what I was doing. So tax preparer, here we come.

There is a lot to be said sometimes for an ordinary life. But I feel sure you yourself are not ordinary. That's cool that your parents met at summer camp.

That sounds so romantic meeting at a summer camp.
