>Tagged…

>Well, it seems like I have been tagged.  I was reading Morena’s Blog late last week, and I was one of the people she tagged to answer a few questions.  Morena and I met briefly last fall when I was in Cape Dorset and got ‘stuck’… and then later that fall when I was in Iqaluit, and she was passing through.  Earlier this year she moved to Pangnirtung…and I’m always insanely jealous of her posts of my old town.  I miss life up there a lot!!! But am glad we can keep in touch via the internets!

So without any more delay I’ll respond to this ‘meme’….more info if you click here, but basicly it’s a list of questions that you answer… which in the process will tell others more about you…the fun part is that you get to ‘pass’ this joy along and ‘tag’ others… and ask questions of them!!!and then ask others to respond to your questions! 

So here are my answers…

1. What is your dream vacation if money was no object?
Yikes! that’s a hard question to answer… I’ve done some ‘low-budget’ travelling in my day…like Australia for a year, with $2000 saved! 

Hmmmm but where have I been wanting to head lately?  I guess it’s a mix of two different trips–that could be combined?  A. touring around the UK… Ireland, Wales, England, and Scotland… with a good friend!  B. Going to Africa, I’d love to visit Kenya.. go on a safari..but also do some kind of humanitarian thing while I’m there…with the money that’s no object..perhaps helping a project that has come from the people there.. !? who knows…

2. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
I’m incredibly hard on myself. I’ve accomplished a lot of great things in my life–but often look to the things that I haven’t accomplished yet, and then I end up beating myself up over not accomplishing those goals. I’d love to be easier on myself. 

3. If you could visit a time in history, when would it be and why?
I’ve always been fascinated about Canadian Social History, hence my first degree…so I’d love to head back and be a fur trader…travelling through the crazy ‘wilderness’ of Canada…Although because I’m a woman… I wouldn’t have been that explorer.. sometimes you can’t change everything in history! But I think that would have been a kick ass time to be around… (although I can’t say I’d be happy with what the colonial white settlers did with the Aborginal Populations…but that’s another story!)

4. What is your favorite thing about the place you live?
Yikes, what a rough question to answer… especially today… Winnipeg is a beautiful city… it’s different that any place I’ve ever lived… I can say I love how things in the ‘arts’ are accessible and cheap (compared to Toronto)…but to be honest, it’s a hard place to figure out where you stand.  After living in Pangnirtung for a year–a small remote community it’s so easy to find friends, network and have that sense of community…and well Winnipeg.. it’s just harder… and well lonesome!

5. What do you think would be the worst job in the word?

I think doing a job that is something you aren’t passionate about.  Something that you are paid, just not well… and doesn’t use your mind.  That would be the worst job in the world!

So thanks Morena for including me. And as the rule goes, I now pass it on. I’m tagging Lisa, Tara, Guy Terrifico, Ryan, and Amanda. Here are your questions.

1. Where is one place you’d love to live?
2. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
3. If you could have lunch with anyone in the world and ask them one question, who would it be and what would you ask them?
4. What is your favorite memory from childhood?
5. What do you want to do when you “grow-up”?
