Ten on Tuesday!

Good afternoon, all! It has been awhile since I've participated on 10 on Tuesday...and since I'm trying to do everything possible right now to procrastinate cleaning house and going to the gym...what's a better time to write a blog!?


Here it goes!

1. Is there a band/artist that you HATE?

I don't like the word hate. I was always taught that it's one of those "never words"...but I will say I STRRRRONGLY dislike Lady Gaga. Strongly. Her music, in my opinion, is crap. Annoying. I don't know if it's just her music that gets to me or the combination of her overly-sexual, psychotic image she portrays. Gross.

I also strongly dislike Justin Beaver? Beeber? However you spell it, he drives me nuts. I remember the 1st time I heard him on the radio -- before he can a "Superstar"....I thought this kid has talent, and I had faith in him. He had a beautiful voice. Now, he's turned into a cocky like brat. Good luck with keeping that hihg-pitched voice after you go through puberty, little man.

(Okay, before you think I'm heartless -- I'm implying thick, sarcastic, cynical humor here.)

2. What do you do when you get a gift that you do not like? How do you react?
This is very rare that I would recieve a gift I don't. For, any gift is appreciated. If it were to occur, the giver would know I didn't like it...for I don't do well "sugar-coating" my reactions. I would probably respond in an awkward and uncomfortable manner just saying, "Ohhhhhhhhhhh!!!"

I don't have much of a "poker face"3. How is your work office/cubicle decorated?
I don't have an office desk or cubicle. If I did, it probably wouldn't be decorated. It'd just be really neat, with clorox wipes.

My current "work area" is a nurse's station where I have a computer, my caffeine, and water -- and I excessively wipe the entire area with chlorox in fear that there is some skin-eating bacteria cultivating in my work space. Hospitals are icky.
4. Do you use all of your vacation every year?
No. I probably never will. My schedule requires me to only work 3 12 hr shifts/week. For example, in February we are taking a long weekend where I cannot work from Thursday-Tuesday, and I didn't have to take a single hour of PTO.
5. Did you have a real or fake Christmas tree?
Fake. You can fight me, argue me, call me a grinch -- but I will NEVER subject to a real tree. They are gorgeous, they are beautiful, they are real -- but I don't like pine needles and messes. Plus, I'm a little bit allergic to pine. So I'd probably get a rash decorating it.
I looove my fake, plastic tree.
6. If you could have anything for dinner tonight, what would it be?
Oh...I would love macoroni and ketchup. A childhood favorite of mine. The past 2 nights of work have been hell. Seriously hell -- to the point where it's almost comical.

So, all I want to do is go to the gym, come home, put on comfy pj's, curl up on the couch, and eat a bowl of macoroni & ketchup.
7. Do you bite your fingernails?
Only when I'm uncomfortable. When I'm in an awkward social situation, or talking to someone who is giving me piercing eye contact or who is getting into my "personal bubble", I bite my fingernails out of "discomfort". It's a weird habit of mine.

8. How many cups of coffee do you drink each day?
Depends. I used to be just 1. Now it's 1-3. I also usually have a can of diet soda if I'm working. My caffiene habits are getting to be a problem, and some action may need to be taken in the near future here....
9. Do you have a nervous tick?
I would have to say - yes. I have to be doing something constantly. Usually with my hands. Ryan will actually do "tests" to see how long I can go just sitting still and gracefully....

It never lasts beyond 5 minutes....

10. How often do you vacuum?
About 1-2 times per week. We have less carpet in our new house -- but I just discovered my Dyson handle's tile floors too! So, I am finding myself doing floors about 2 times/week. I think it annoys my husband....especially since I will do it at the randomest of times.

Justin Bieber. Haha..that's how you spell it. I always tell people this whenever they mention him because I truly do think it's hilarious and ridiculous how big he's gotten. He actually grew up with my cousins. My cousin taught him how to climb a tree and made him cry once. (I can't remember why or how??) She was telling me over the holidays, she was at the same party as him and he guess he was just acting like a huge jerk. Hilarious.

Also, I love that you said hospitals are icky. I don't know why, but that just made me laugh!!

I own a Justin Bieber CD. ;) But I agree, his attitude is getting OOC!!

That's nice that you are able to shift around your schedules so that you don't have to use vacation time! Can't wait to hear where you are going!

First Lisa owns a Justin Bieber cd? What are we going to do with her?
I loved mac with ketchup as well when I was little! Too funny
PS: I was recently discussing Lady Gaga with Chris that I don't mind her songs but I hear her concerts become a big homosexual rally and personally when I go to a concert I am there to see a performance, not to have moral/ political views shoved in my face so I would never go to her concerts for that reason.
