    those answers were deep.

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    I'll take blog hugs any day, and especially this week :( I've sent an e-mail and might say a bit about what's gone on this week once my brain functions again. Thanks again, Cathy. Oh, and what's on page 282 of that places to visit book?

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    DayByDay;
    I didn't think I was going too deep, but then I guess the Socrates reference could be considered deep! :)

    Stephanie;
    Schaffhausen, Switzerland.
    Wanna go?...

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    Think beach...um...sunshine. What was the place I selected last time? Beach huts on a tranquil island...? Spa treatments. I need spa treatments...

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Stephanie;
    YES! Amanwana....I wanna I wanna I wanna go to Amanwana....the island inhabited by butterflies and crab-eating monkeys...let's go.

  1. Blogger SkyeBlue2U said:

    Crab eating monkey? LOL!! :)

  1. Blogger momyblogR said:

    Great list. The last answer was the best. How great is it to truly not want to be anyone else??

    Insightful as usual. :)

  1. Blogger Aly said:

    I always am up for hugs. This post reminded me of Friday. Sitting at Book People in an old creaky chair staring at the historical section. Not sure why it reminded me of that but it did. I want to go back and do that again this week..and get another tripple shot mocha latte. The smell alone wakes me up :)

  1. Blogger Michelle said:

    OOOoo, Proust questionnaire...nice :)

  1. Blogger missbhavens said:

    I love those questionaires. They yeild so much nifty information!

    Hugs rock. Especially ones from kids and small furry animals.

  1. Blogger Connie and Rob said:

    Love your hug picture. Kinda makes you want to jump in and snuggle with them.

    You did a nice job on your list. I think this was a good one you got from Chloe. I also plan to participate.

    Have a wonderful day,
    Connie

  1. Blogger Meow said:

  1. Blogger Devil Mood said:

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    SkyeBlue;

    MomyBlogR;

    Alysa;

    Michelle;
    Have you done this one before?

    MissB;
    Hugs from me and my kids and my nice furry animals :)

    Connie;
    I was thinking about you when I posted that photo; it looked like one you would like, and so do I! :)

    Meow;
    I also knew that you would like the photo! :)

    Devil Mood;
    No, not my kitties, unfortunately....

  1. Blogger Heidi said:

    I loved the questionaire and the your answers. It is always fun to read those and get to know someone in a different way.

    Thanks for sharing and how wonderful it is to be happy in your own skin!!

    Mary

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    i'd love a hug, and not just one.
    I like Jo as well. She is a great character. As i was looking for recipes today, i found a "Specialty Omelet" inspired by the point where Jo makes her mum breakfast (omelette, tea and biscuits) Want it??
    Oh and i want to come wherever it is you are going with Stephanie. :)

  1. Blogger erikku said:

    I don't need any hugs today, thank you. I much prefer giving them anyways. ^_^

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Heidi;
    You have the right attitude.
    I hope you had a good weekend.xoxo

    Steve;
    So do you love being you too?...

    Romani;
    Isn't it cute!

    Mary;
    Thanks!

    Chloe;
    Yes, can you be by in the morning with that?
    Stephanie and I are planning a trip to Amanwana...wanna travel? We don't leave manana...

    Eric;
    Giving, receiving, they all end up as hugs {} :)

  1. Blogger Michelle said:

    No, not completed one myself, but i am familiar with the Proust questionaire though. Perhaps i may indulge.
    How's your "working weekend"? been thinking about you.

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Michelle;
    My working weekend hasn't worked out so well; I did work yesterday but not today. I will be making up for it in the evenings of the upcoming week,though. Man, I need my babysitter back!
