Combo plate at Mim’s near St. Paul campus, and the oatmeal cookies from Bread & Chocolate.

When was the last time you were tipsy?
The night I bought my house!

If you were a day of the week, which would you be?
Saturday (morning). The weekend’s just begun.

If you were to win a free round-the-world trip, what stops would you like to make (name at least five)?
Paris, London, Venice, Jerusalem – and visit every Dale Chihuly glass installation around the world.

The rules of this meme are as follows:
• Respond to the questions
• Post them in your own blog
• Replace one question
• Tag as many people as you want

So far, I've tagged Christopher, Kate, Elaine, Pat and Jenny.
