2.  WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING?    I'm reading several right now...In my bag to take to work, I've got Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (which I'm re-reading), and The Hotel Riviera by Elizabeth Adler.  I sometimes take three or four different books to work...it all depends on my mood as to which book I'm going to read.

Okay, I would say John for a boy, after my brother and my grandfather...For a girl, I don't know, I already used up the perfect one for my daughter. 
12. WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT IN LIFE?   I can't answer the question right now.  I know what it should be, and what I want it to be, and what it actually is to me.  Three different things...which is the right answer?

21. IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY JOB WHAT WOULD IT BE?   This is alway such a tricky question.  Because the next thing you would say is, you know what, you CAN have any job.  What's stopping you? 
Why am I working at a job I don't really like?  It's okay, but certainly now what I ever dreamed about.
