Wow, I just learned something new about blogging today! I discovered that it really is important to put something in your profile. I guess I thought it would be blank until I got around to doing it, but it turns out I was an accountant from Afghanistan by default. Who knew?

It's not that easy doing a profile, either. For instance, you can list your favorite movies. But mine are everything from Anne of Green Gables and Little Women to Flushed Away and The Emporer's New Groove! And lots in between. In other words, very eclectic. And to add to the dilemma, we have a TV Guardian ("The Foul Language Filter" - we just call it our crud-meter), so I can watch the movies that are excellent except for the language. That has opened up a whole new category of movies, but I hesitate to recommend them, because without the crud-meter, there would be too much profanity to slog through.

As for books - I read everything from children's books to philosophy, history, sci-fi and fantasy, classics - it totally depends on the book. The only consistent thing is that I'm always reading something. Same with music - smooth jazz, contemporary Christian and all the hymns, country, marches, and I find techno relaxes me!

What about hobbies and interests? There is so much to interest me in this life. Writing, horses, gardening, esp. roses, cooking, playing snare drum, obviously reading and watching movies and listening to music. I homeschooled all of my children from K-12 and now I find being the mother of young adults endlessly interesting. I went to college in my early 40's and there's always more to learn. My husband and I have been married for 29 years and he still fascinates me. No matter how many times I read the Bible, I always learn something new.

I finally decided to just stick with the basics on the profile. Although I thoroughly enjoyed Accounting in college, I didn't end up becoming an accountant, and although I'd love to travel the world some day, I've never been to Afghanistan. Other than that, all bets are off!
