Friday with a tag

It's another creatureless Friday, and I am working on my second music post, but in the meantime, here's a meme from Keera. The rules are:

1. Respond and rework:
Answer the questions on your blog.
Replace one question you dislike with a question of your own invention.
Add a question of your own.
2. Tag eight other people. (Optional)

Here goes:

1) What is (are) your current obsession(s)?
Slow food cooking.

2) What do you see outside your window?
The view is constantly changing at this time of year, but right now, it includes lots of blossoms and the tiny beginnings of leaves.

3) Do you nap a lot?
Not often enough. I love to nap!

4) Who was the last person you hugged?
My friend Jason.

5) Which animal would you be?
Oh, a bird. I'd love to fly.

6) What’s for dinner?
Mediterranean Turkey Burgers. This was my first try with this recipe and they. were. delicious!!!!

9) What is your favorite weather?
Cool with a little bit of cloud cover to give the photos nice lighting.

10) What’s on your bedside table?
A lamp, my cell phone charger, and some moisturizer.

11) Say something to the person/s who tagged you.
Keera, I think it's been way too long since we've been able to hang out!

12) If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be?
On a farm on the coast.

19) What is the event in your life that has defined you the most?
I can't point to any one thing. Memories do stand out, but I think I am very much the result of an accumulation of experiences.

I'm going to a meet & greet for my district's city council candidate.

21) What color do you find yourself wearing more often than not?

22) What is your favorite day of the week?
Friday!

23) What do you associate with the number 23?
G-Dog's (September) birthday, which he shares with a very hip cousin (plus Bruce Springsteen, Ray Charles, AND John Coltrane, and a few pretty cool actors -- it was a big day for American culture!)

Added question:

24) What are you looking forward to doing this year?
Expanding the back yard garden!
