    I love maps. The coolest thing that I know about maps is that on each and every map the cartographer puts in a small error, usually something that is not really there. For example, in a residential area there might be a street included that is not really there. It is done so that it can be easily determined if a map is being plagiarized.

    In high school I had a geography teacher who let me do lots of independent projects. I worked through a program called Drawing the World by Heart on my own. I don't think I could do it anymore, but I could draw an entire map of the world from memory. I spent the summer between my junior and senior year looking for the error in a map of Sacramento. I actually found it...it was a street that was added at the end of a dead end road. The mythical street had the name of the cartographer.

    My antique California map collection is one of my favorite things.

    I could happily be a hermit, and may well become one when I retire.
    If I couldn't teach, I would still do something with kids (because much of the time I like kids better than adults). Perhaps working with preteens and teens in a drop-in/crisis centre.

    I'd be a fireman, a paleontologist, or an astronaut. But that would be after I was a ninja.

    I would own a restaurant. But not a sit-down service - a place where you could call up in the afternoon, order an entire home-cooked style dinner for your family, and pick it up on your way home from work.

    I'd probably want to be an attorney. I'm such a dork that I read some of my husband's bar prep books. :D Unfortunately, I'd have to take classes that would bore me to tears and I'd have to suffer through the bar exam and waiting for results. Meh.
