Hmm. Five things I can't live without: my family, my 3 Jack Russell Terriers, books, chocolate, and quiet time to myself. My favorite travel destinations are South Carolina beaches, Santa Fee, Santa Barbara, Wallowa Lake and my dream vacation is to New Zealand. My favorite books, movies, shows, etc include The Lord of the Rings, Pillars of the Earth, Shawshank Redemption, The Colbert Report, The Daily Show, Big Bang Theory, Babylon 5, all the Star Treks, Up, Nora Jones, Jackson Brown, Trout Fishing in America, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Lyle Lovett, Krispey Kreme donuts (hot off the conveyor belt,) salmon, strawberries, gingerbread, sweet potatoes, and pretty much any food I don't have to cook myself.
As a guest, I'm very quiet and generally like to keep to myself. However, I do enjoy engaging in interesting conversations on any number of subjects. I'm glad the energy crisis of last decade resulted in the very positive change that hotels, etc. no longer wash guests sheets and towels everyday unless specifically requested.
