Don't Envy Me

1) What is it about you that you believe your friends and acquaintances envy? I am told that I seem to have it all together

2) Do you have a friend or acquaintance that you envy? no one comes to mind

3) This song was not a hit, even though it was written and produced by the supersuccessful team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Tell us about a project you had great confidence in at the beginning, but didn't turn out as well as you'd hoped. many, many times I will plan and implement a lesson that works well and engages one class but is a terrible flop with a different class

4) George Hamilton is better known as an actor. He is proud of his performance in the 1960 movie Light in the Piazza. He played an Italian who romances an American girl on holiday in Florence. Did you ever find love while vacationing? I had a bit of a flirt while in Barcelona

5) George had a small part in Godfather III. How many of the Godfather movies have you seen? Have you read the book? I have not seen any of the Godfather movies all the way through and I have not read the book, I keep meaning to do both

6) He's gotten a lot of publicity over the years for his personal life, including his 1966 romance with First Daughter Lynda Bird Johnson. At the time, she was living in the White House. Tell us about a memorable experience you had "meeting the parents." hmmm... I don't have any memorable experiences

7) George is also known for his year-round tan. Have you ever used a tanning bed? Or self tanner? in the early 90s I used a great Mary Kay self tanner

8) In 1963, when this record was released, President Kennedy made a historic trip to Ireland. Have you ever visited the land of your ancestors? I have--Quebec, France, and Ireland

9) Random question -- The last of a batch of delicious chocolate chip cookies just fell on your kitchen floor. Would you eat it? oh yes

I envy all the traveling you've done! I don't even have any desire to watch/read the Godfather movies/books.

How exciting to read the places you've been. You are in the perfect place to go traveling. The east coast has the west coast beat all hollow for travel to Europe. But then, we have Hawaii, Peru, The Galapagos. lol

Ah.. another cookie from the floor person. Mr. Z will be pleased to know this!
Happy knitting to ya. Mine is on "Pause".

Is the Mary Kay something you smeared on yourself? I tried something like that once and it looked ghastly. Waste of money for me. Barcelona would be a fun place to have a fling!

"A bit of a flirt in Barcelona." You're holding out on us, Miss Kwiz! There's a story there!
