My too cool for school friend Jen tagged me -- so, here goes!
Favorite person (outside family)? Marbie...or Debark. If it can only be one person, then it has to be my two best friends, Debbie and Mark, melded into one person. Wouldn't they look interesting once it was done?
Favorite food? French bread smothered with brie (preferably with red wine close by)
Quirks about you? Sometimes I laugh obnoxiously loud! Even I get annoyed.
How would the person who loves you most describe you in ten words or less? I hope they'd mention humorous, good listener, caring, fun and joyful.
Any regrets in life? I regret having hurt people. Even the ones that have forgiven me...I carry that with me.
Favorite Charity/ Cause? Disabled American Veterans. Anything for our men and women in service.
Favorite Blog recently? The Blog of Bex. For when I need to laugh so hard that I pee a little.
Something you can’t get enough of? Time away from work.
Worst job you’ve ever had? Temp office position at a retirement facility. They suggested it would include a "little bit of telemarketing." Actually, that's all it was, and I had to work for the owner's snotty but stupid daughter. That lasted about 3 weeks, until I told the agency to get me the heck out of there.
What job would you pay NOT to have? Sky scraper window washer.
If you could be a fly on the wall, where? Recording studio while U2 works on their next album!
Favorite Bible verse right now? Philippians 2:2 "Make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose." (By the way, husband...I just realized...our inscriptions are spelled wrong. Are you freaking kidding me?)
Guilty Pleasure? Ice cream. Specifically, chocolate peanut butter ice cream. Boring, but true.
Got any confessions? I can't STAND one of my co-workers. To the point that I pretend I'm on the phone if I know he's headed my way. Hey, it works.
If you HAD to spend $1,000 on YOURSELF, how would you spend it? Because HAVING to spend money on myself would be hard?? Let's see -- Photoshop and an aMAzing camera. Done.
Favorite thing about your house? The new floors! They're almost a year old, but I still feel elated when I see them.
Least favorite thing about your house? The current value - ugh.
One thing you are bad at? Telling the wrong people my secrets.
One thing you’re good at? Keeping someone elses secrets.
If you could change something about your circumstances, what? I'd be the stay at home mom.
Who would you like to meet someday? Amy Grant! But not on a nutty fan level...I'd love to just get coffee and hang out with her.
What makes you feel sexy? My husband.
Who is your real life hero? People who truly give of themselves to help and serve others.
What is the hardest part of your job? The loooong commute. I'm getting sick of being in my car!
When are you most relaxed? At home, after the kids are asleep, and I'm hanging out with my hubby.
What stresses you out? Crowds -- I feel like I want to scream when I'm overwhelmed by crowds.
What can you not live without? My kids -- there would be nothing without my kids.
Do you agree or disagree with the recent article that reported that blogs are authored by narcissists? Disagree! I enjoy sharing my adventures with whomever is interested, and I enjoy reading about the lives and thoughts of others. How does that make us different than book sellers or buyers?
Who are you tagging? New(ish) bloggers - Being new myself, I'm afraid I don't know any!
Bloggy friends - Jen and Lisa
A blogger who wouldn’t respond at all, but you'd hope will- Dooce. I know she's everywhere, but she's so funny! Nate & Tricia - they are amazing.
