Ten on Tuesday

I'm sure you've noticed, there's been a slight lack of me blogging.  Do not fret my pets, someday, one day, I'll get you caught up.  I have about a dozen posts in draft form to remind me of what I need to post about. 

In the meantime, I thought I'd jump on the Ten for Tuesday bandwagon.  Why not answer some fun easy questions?  If anything I answer spurs a question from you, feel free to ask me in the comments.  :)

So here goes the 10 (actually 15) questions for this week...

  1. If you could change anything about your physical appearance, what would it be?From my boobs to my butt, I'd like them minimized.  Most preferrably in the belly area.
  2. Is there a habit in others that you find annoying?
    Yes!  People that drive under the speed limit on a 2 lane road.  People that chit chat personal stuff with sales associate while there is a line forming.  People that decide it's ok to have a full out blow out via a cell phone conversation in public.  I could go on...
  3. What is your favorite recipe using ground beef?
    Oh there are so many...  But I'd probably say enchiladas.  Yum!
  4. What was your favorite book as a kid?
    I was a huge fan of Paddington Bear.  Remember him?  He's was the cute little bear that wore the yellow rain outfit.  So cute!  In fact, I think I still have those books...
  5. Did you work as a teenager and if so, where?
    Hahahaha.  Yes, I've been working for, oh about the last 24 years.  I started catering when I was a wee lass.  Imagine me with a little 5/6 year old voice while carrying a tray around saying, "Would you like a piece of sausage?"  That was my job, I was the sausage passer-outter, and I was paid a whopping $5 a job.  I know, big earner!  So I catered all through my teenage years.  Through most of high school, I worked at my Aunt's shop (Divine Bovine) that was Downtown Turlock (and no longer there). 
  6. Did you work in college and if so, where?
    In college I worked for the alumni office for 3 years, catered big jobs on weekends (yep, I'd go home to earn an easy $75-100 bones), and would work for my aunt during holiday breaks.  As well as summer jobs of working for my dad at the meat plant, then 2 summers of working for a local cannery checking on peach growers in the area.
  7. When you go to sleep do you like total darkness or semi?  When you go to sleep do you need quiet or is some noise ok?
    Bedtime sleep:  quiet darkness.  Naptime rest: doesn't matter, if I'm tired I'll crash anywhere under any conditions.
  8. When doing laundry, fabric softener or not?Not.  Only because my mom never used it (that I know of) therefore, I don't know how to use it or what the point of it is. 
  9. Open toed or closed toed shoes?Summer - open - flip flops preferrably.  Winter - closed - fUggs preferrably.
  10. Would you rather be blind or deaf?
    Oh dear...  That's a tough one.  Miss seeing God's magnificent creation or hearing the sounds of praise?  I'm a visual person, so I guess I'd rather be deaf.  I'm also a multitasker, so then I'd be able to walk and see where I'm going while talking signing.
  11. Dangle or stud earrings?
    Studs.  Big sparkly ones.  Or small dainty pearly ones.  I'm not a fan of dangle earrings whipping me in the cheek or ear or getting caught in my hair.
  12. Bottled water or tap?
    I can't drink the tap water where I live, it's too cloudy.  So I use a Brita.  I love my Brita because I love water.  Seriously, I drink it like it's going out of style.  Of the bottled water category, I'm picky.  I can tell if it's been filtered water vs. spring water.  Seriously, Aquafina and Dansani, blah!  Fuji or Crystal Geyser, yum!
  13. What do you put on pancakes?
    Lightly buttered and lots of maple syrup!  Waffles don't fall into the pancake category, they get totally different toppings.  Same with french toast.
  14. On a long trip would you rather drive or fly?
    I would say it depends.  Where am I going?  I love long car rides and road trips just as long as I have company in the car.  Just ask Rylen, but don't ask her about Nebraska unless you want her to wet her pants while reminiscing and laughing.  I do love flying as well though.  Drive to Hawaii, not an option.  I grew up with parents that owned a motorhome, so we took many a long haul road trips.  And I love my memories and experiences from that.  So, yea, it depends.
  15. Do you prefer classic old movies or new?
    Some classics, but mostly new.  Or newer classics.  Like the remake of Little Rascals.  Love that movie!  I got a dollar, I got a dollar, I got a dollar hey hey hey hey!

I too was a fan of Paddington Bear! I saw a Paddington play once and strangely, the most standout thing to me about that play...I didn't know what "marmalade" was and they kept referring to it, LOL

Glad to see you in Ten on Tuesday :)

I completely agree with your bad habits!

You are like the 18 Billionth person who has said "enchiladas" for their ground beef answer. I have never made enchiladas with ground beef. Apparently I'm a freak!

If you have a good recipe to share, let me know. (Go to the "contact me" page on my blog.) Seriously. I would love to try it.
