Fun Flickr Meme

There is such a fun meme going around on flickr right now. I'm sure you've seen it. Here are the rules:
a. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
b. Using only the first page, pick an image.
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd's mosaic maker.

The Questions: I've filled in my answers after each question.

1. What is your first name? Mary Beth. I found this image of another Mary Beth going on a nature walk with her son. Perfect!
2. What is your favorite food? Burger and fries. I actually don't know if this is my favorite food, but I like it very much (thus my Mother's Day tradition of lunch at Jolly Cone) and I figured, why not keep it real? So there you are. The picture shows In-n-Out burger, a very good burger chain we have here in Southern California.
3. What high school did you go to? Bullard High School. I love this image of a baby girl named Bullard!
4. What is your favorite color? Green.
5. Who is your celebrity crush? John Corbett. I loved him in Northern Exposure and loved him even more as Aidan on Sex and the City. As his Sex and the City character developed, I kept remarking on how much like Ken Aidan was--down to earth, loyal, committed, and simple-pleasure-loving. Great guy.
6. Favorite drink? Coffee. Again, I don't know if this is my favorite drink, but I drink it every day. I love this bookstore image that comes up when you type in coffee. I'd love to drink a cup there and browse its aisles.
7. Dream vacation? Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. Originally, I said Germany, but when I thought of the Eric Carle museum, I realized it's my more pressing dream vacation. Neither is very realistic for us, but I can dream, can't I?
8. Favorite dessert? Chocolate. And these cookies? That is very "me" as you know if you've been reading this blog very long.
9. What you want to be when you grow up? Earth goddess. I joked to Ken that when I become an Earth goddess there will be a lot less of #2 and #8 going on! I've been telling him how I'm going to use all the vegetables from the garden this year and all our fruit. That to me is very earth goddessy.
10. What do you love most in life? Love! Don't we all?
11. One Word to describe you. "Down to earth." I know that's 3 words, but I'm obsessed with this concept. I love people who are down to earth and I intend to be that too. I hope I never come across as smug or conceited because that is so not what is in my heart. I have many many struggles that I just work through on this journey of life.
12. Your flickr name. Salt and Chocolate.

I did two versions of this meme. The first is very similar to this one, but I felt compelled to go back and change a few things. I found that certain searches yielded different results when I typed it in different times. That was weird--I never figured out why. You can see my original version here. Mostly though, I think you will want to do one yourself, won't you? It's really fun to choose your images and and contemplate some of the answers. Enjoy!

I enjoyed your Flickr Photo Meme-- I love people who are "down to earth" too.

I saw Rainer's picture on Soulemama this morning when I checked in after the weekend. You've got yourself a little cutie... praying that things are improving with his infection.
