40 things about me

1. Are you named after anyone?  Possibly Laura Ingalls Wilder. My parents read me her books as a child. I'd like to say I'm named after Laura from Carmilla.

5. Do you have any kids?  Yes, a 6 year old dog and four year old conure.

6. If you were another person, would you be friends?  I think I've finally become so awesome I'd really want to be my friend, but I'd probably be too shy to approach me.

8. Do you still have your tonsils?  Yes. Several years ago I was about one bout of tonsillitis away from being able to get them removed but they're ok now. Touch wood.

9. Would you bungee jump? No, Knowing my luck I'd hit the bridge or the cord would snap.
