1. How many keys on your key ring?

House key, mailbox key, several retailer's courtesy cards, cashbox key, flash drive.

2. What kind of books do you like to read?

Mystery thrillers.  Lots of nonfiction, mostly history, medicine, law and forensics (NOT "true crime", which tends towards the sensationalistic, but actual nonfiction accounts of the scientific processes involved in crime solving).

3. What are some of the different jobs that you have had in your life?

Bookstore clerk, music store clerk, grocery store cashier, office monkey, housewife, in that order.

4. What is your best childhood memory?

Being a student in Anna Lenhard's fifth-grade class at Avery Coonley School in Downer's Grove, IL.

5. If you had a big win in the lottery, how long would you wait to tell people?

Other than immediate family, I'd want to wait until the check was in the bank, and we had spoken to a financial advisor to set up a plan for sustaining the money to provide a steady income. (I stole this answer pretty much verbatim from gridlore's original post; his plans jibe nicely with my own thoughts on the matter.)

6. If you could change something about your home, without worry about expense or mess, what would you do?

Without actually starting over and buying a different house, the two major things that need to be fixed are the electrical wiring and the hall bathroom.  As in, at a minimum replace the junction box, at worst rewire the whole house; and the hall bath just needs to be gutted and redone--there's a leak under the floor somewhere which we haven't yet been able to afford to fix.

7. Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving?

Neither, both would completely fubar my intracranial pressure, which is a Very Bad Thing for those of us with hydrocephalus.  Flying in a pressurized aircraft is painful enough, I'm not gonna launch myself out of one without a damn good reason, and skydiving ain't it.
