I haven't seen it.

40. Where is your favorite place (that you have actually been to)?

Hard question! I've been to some sincerely amazing places. If I could sort out my favorite, I would probably align my life to be able to be there more often.

41. What is your favorite candle scent?
I like different scents in different places and I'm mainly hooked on PartyLite scents (blame Fraukow). In my den, I like fresh scents like lemongrass or cotton blossom or something citrus. In the bathroom, I prefer ocean mist or seaside mist or spring water. In other rooms it depends on the time of year or my mood. I have an assortment of spice-based (ginger, cinnamon, mint) or plant-based (bayberry, pine) regulars and a few one-off scents that I try because they sound interesting.

42. Do you believe places can really be haunted?

43. Do you smoke cigarettes?

44. Have you ever been to NYC or LA?

45. How many states have you been to where all you saw was the airport?
None. I’ve at least seen the inside of a shuttle and a theatre in the states I’ve flown into.

46. Do you think 50 questions is enough?
More than enough for one sitting.

47. Are you currently planning a trip?
Several: Wilson, NY (three times over the summer); Toronto, ONT; Bethlehem, PA; Dunnville, ONT. We also just got back from visiting my mom and sister in Arizona.

48. Is Ryan Seacrest gay?
If I knew who he was, I might have a guess.

49. Do you take anti-depressants? Sleeping pills?

50. What do you think about space travel?
I wonder if it will one day be as commonplace as air travel is today.
