Ten on Tuesday!

1. What’s your favorite kind of donut?
I really don't like donuts. At all. They make my mouth dry. And it's just bread...with sugar...It's just one of those things that do not excite me.

2. Do you use the snooze button?
Yes. In fact, we purposely set alarms 10 minutes early in this house to allow a "gradual" wake up. I don't like just jumping right out of bed.

3. Do you write in cursive, print, or a combination of the two?
Combination of the 2 - It depends on my mood.
4. Tell us a joke.
Okay, I usually ruin jokes, because I blurt out the punch line too early. But being I'm typing this......it should go okay:

It's Superbowl 45 - Packers vs. Steelers at Dallas stadium. And this older man is sitting 4th row from the front at the 50th yard-line. There is an empty seat next to him. A man behind him proclaims "Oh my GOD!! An Empty seat? Why an empty seat?!?! You've got the best seats in this house! This is ludicrous! What a waste!

The old man sighs and says, "Well, this seat was for my wife. But she passed away. So now it's an empty seat"

The fan gives a compassionate pat on the back, and says "I'm so sorry for your lost. Couldn't you find a family member or friend to join you to enjoy these great seats and this game??"

The old man replies, "They're all at her funeral."



5. How many languages do you speak?
English is my only fluent language. I also speak a little Spanglish. But I'm terrible at it -- and need to learn it desperately if I want to survive in my career - so Rosetta Stone is on hold for me right now!


6. Why did you start blogging?
Well, this blog was originally started for me to talk about my wedding plans. But, let's just face it, I was the worst wedding planner in the world. So I never had anything to blog about.

But, then I found it kind of a fun way to write about life in Arizona...so picked it back up about a year after it was created!

7. Do you use bar soap or liquid body wash?
Definitely liquid body wash.


8. Do you buy bottled water?
No. Only when we go camping or on a road trip of some sort. 

9. What did you think of the Super Bowl Half Time Show?
Okay, so I wrote a few days ago that I thought it was entertaining. I liked the dancing, and the funny light-up-costumes they wore etc. But as I heard people talking about certain events, I found myself saying "Hm...I don't remember that part" -- and now I realize that during the half time show..I only *half* watched it....

To be honest, I never expect to see a good half-time show at a sporting event. They're just lame. So if it's mildly entertaining and turns some heads -- I consider it "good"


10. How do you feel about Steve Carell leaving The Office?
What?!?! And I considered myself a fan of the office! I had no idea! That's ridiculous. Steve Carell kind of makes the office. So, I'm not okay with it.

A Few Things

First of all, I caved. I watched the Superbowl. I never watched this before I met my husband. But, every year -- we end up going to a party and having a fun time. So it works out well. I whipped up a super-American-football-ish dip in record time. For I found out about the party 10 minutes before leaving the house!

He forgot to mention it to me. It happens :) Good thing I'm flexible

I know everyone hated the half-time show. But I think this was much better than Bruce Springsteen & The Who the previous years. Yes, I like The Who...but not for Superbowl. I like "The Who" on my i-pod. I'd rather see Janet Jackson's boob than watch The Who (who are clearly past their prime....). I will also be honest & say I like the Black Eyed Peas. A lot. Especially Fergie. If i look like her at 36, I will be a happy woman.

I started a boxing class today - it went surprisingly well. I miss boxing - and hope to attend this more. It brings out the ALMOST non-existent tough girl in me. That hour goes super fast. 

I. Am. So. Ready. For. A. New. Week. Yesterday, I was hanging my head low saying "Can I just have a do-over of last week?" -- when I decided to just kick last week out the door and start over! New Week! New days! Good times!

I hope EVERYONE has a fantastic week!

PS -- I would like to make a big, loving, happy shout-out to my sister Lisa! HAPPY BIRTHDAY my dear sister! Hope your day was wonderful. You deserve it!
