1. What is the first thing you'd grab if your house was burning down? My husband. He's a total hunk and would be the first thing that I'd grab. But if he's not home, I'm taking the huge box of documents that the French government expects you to lug around for the rest of your life. It's ridiculous. You'll go into town hall to update your visa, ready with every single document they said to bring on their website, wait 3 hours in line, and then they'll tell you, "Oh, you didn't bring your dental records from when you were ten? Sucks to be you, Madame. Come back later when you don't feel like wasting my time s'il vous plaît." It's random and crazy and most of the documents are irreplaceable, because recording immigrant records or major life events onto a computer would be too much of an effort. They often make paper copies to keep in the office. But you can save yourself a lot of disappointment, if you just plan on them losing the documents in advance.
2. If you could take home one animal from the zoo the snuggle with which one would it be? A baby tiger kitten (or two)! So cute and cuddly looking. :) I'm allergic cats, but keeping my fingers crossed that tigers won't have the same unfortunate effect on me.
3. Your life is a dessert, which one is it? Definitely a brownie. I'm all-American, sweet but not too rich (in fact, the week before payday I'm not rich at all), and the French have no idea what to make of me.
