Gary wanted to know the following questions:

*What is your favorite movie?

Amanda: Probably Big Fish.

*Do you like sports? If so, which ones?

Amanda: Yes, I like some sports. I grew up with soccer in my blood, so that’s a given since I come from Brazil. I love beach volleyball and some extreme sports. I love swimming, racquetball, some football, a tiny bit of baseball, but I love ice hockey!!!!!

*Cats or dogs?

Amanda: I’m allergic to both animals, but I love dogs. 🙂

*You need to name your 3 wishes! Merely saying more wishes defeats the purpose of the question which is to learn which things in life resonate with you the most.

Amanda: I would wish 1) I could live past 130 years old 2) There would be a cure for cancer 3) I had so much money I wouldn’t need to work and I could live being a philanthropist and doing good all over the world. 🙂

*You need to state your dollar amount if you were given a million dollars. How much would you give to charity and how much would you invest? ($50 to charity; $999,950 to invest; you’re so generous!!)

Amanda: One million dollars isn’t a big deal anymore in todays society, unfortunately. People go through that in a day or so. If I did have one million dollars, I would give $200,000 to charity and invest the rest. I would buy a nice comfy home by the lake and three others around the world so I could have a place to stay at if I traveled overseas. I would also have friends and family stay at my vacation homes rent free and they could use it as much as they could. Oh. I would buy an island and turn it into Necker Island, just like Sir Richard Branson did.

Quit slacking and answer all your getting to know you questions! 🙂

Amanda: Wow, that was fun! 😉

    Fui ontem na Casa do Walt Whitman tentar achar esta menina do jardim mas não consegui talvez porque ela esteja na parte de trás da Casa mas caminhando pelo lugar
    achei um Caminhão do corpo de Bombeiro muito Legal !


    1. She was actually in the side of the house. His yard extends to the side towards the road. His backyard was nice. His summer house is a good size of a home. I tried to go to the park he use to go to called “Crystal Springs” where he was known to write poems, but it had been overgrown with lots of bushes, trees and didn’t look too safe. There is a pathway down to the little stream, but even during the day, it felt creepy going down there because it didn’t feel safe.

    There are many important questions that were not on this list:

    *What is your favorite movie?

    *Do you like sports? If so, which ones?

    *Cats or dogs? (this one is better than ninjas vs. pirates; who would pick pirates, anyway?)

    *You need to name your 3 wishes! Merely saying more wishes defeats the purpose of the question which is to learn which things in life resonate with you the most.

    *You need to state your dollar amount if you were given a million dollars. How much would you give to charity and how much would you invest? ($50 to charity; $999,950 to invest; you’re so generous!!)

        Ok, I asked what was your favorite movie – singular; time to make a tough decision! 🙂

        Wow, you’re really gonna stretch out that $800,000! lol.

        You live around Philly – have you ever watched “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”?


What's on your mind? I'd love to know!
