Because I Give Into Peer Pressure (and others things you never wanted to know)

First things first… in a little over a week I head to South America to explore places like this:

Gorgeous, right? It makes every hour of my crazy-packed-why-did-say-yes-to-this-all workweek totally worthwhile. I just keep thinking: good wine, cheap gelato, mountains, glaciers, more good food, bike tours, sleep… Sigh.

But back to the matter at hand.

Last week my friend Amanda offered a challenge, of which I accepted and then promptly forgot about. I’d like to blame my insane work load but in truth, by the end of the day I have been opting to veg in front of the TV rather than sit in front of another computer (which i guess I can blame on work). Better late than never, right? It’s kind of a get to know you thing and I invite all of you to give it a go. So here are the rules:

4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
