Ten on Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Here's my 10 for the week:

1. What type of cell phone do you have and how would you rate it?
I have a Blackberry. I used Verizon service. On a scale of 1-10 I would rate it a 6-7. I haven't had any major problems with mine. I'd say the internet is a tad slow. If I could go back in time...I'd get a Droid.

2. What has been your most serious injury?
Probably my collar bone breakage at birth? But I don't really remember that.

Sooo I'm going to say when I fell running a few summers ago - b/c I was bleeding like a madwoman from the face & knees. And my kneess still have giant scars.

Also, last winter I chopped the tip of my finger off chopping cilantro. It hurt. Bad. I bled. A lot. And then 2 days later, I went to the gym, worked hard & dehydrated myself a ibt, got home, took bandage off, and got super dizzy & almost fainted. That sucked.

3. What is one movie you hate and why?
Beaches. It's *sniff* so *sniff* sad and *sniff* depressing.

4. How many email addresses do you have?

I have several from the past. But I now only use my gmail, and I have a work email address -- but I can only access at work. And I don't like that email address. I only get ukcy work emails in that.

5. What website do you waste the most time on?

6. Which mexican restaurant makes the best salsa?

Hmm...is there such a thing as BAD salsa? I take that back -- El Charro, here in Tucson. Which everyone just loves. I'm not a big fan for some reason. Personally...I don't like to taste the salsa the next day. I don't know if it's tooo oniony or what? But it makes my stomach feel sick!
I like the salsa at Mi Nidito. It's a Tucson owned restaraunt. If you ever visit, I highly recommend this authentic gem.

7. What is your dream car?
I would Porsch Cayenne. It's sports car meets SUV. Plus, doesn't it just scream "va-va-voom"?!

But, being this is a very expensive car (hence th name Porsche in the title)-- this won't happen. I hate cars. Cars are money pits. Cars don't like me either. The story & truth behind this will be revealed in a blog later this week.

8. If you could spend up to $100 with no strings or restrictions or guilt, what would you buy?
A date night up to the Observatories with Ryan. Tucson has these observatories up in the mountains with AMAZING telescopes -- and they have private dinners and a guided astronomer. $100 no-guilt would knock a few $$$$ off the guilty price.

This is something we WILL do before we move to a new city.

9. What is your favorite board game?
Scrabble! In fact, last summer (when it was 100 degrees every day, so it's impossible to do anything outdoors) -- Ryan and I would play a game Biweekly.
I also love Cranium. And Pictionary. And Balderdash!

10. How often do you change your hairstyle?
What 'hairstyle'? I don't have a hairstyle currently. It's more of an "out-of-style".
Okay, so it's not that bad. But it has been 6 months since I've cut my hair. I pretty much quit doing my hair when I moved to Tucson. Never found a hairdresser. So hit up Regis when I NEED to do my hair. And then they usually cut it too short, too uneven, and screw it up -- then I get mad, and say "I'M NEVER CUTTING MY HAIR AGAIN".

That where I'm at now :)

Did we really just have a weekend?

Let's just say that last weekend was...weird. I worked Friday & Saturday night. So I didn't really have a weekend. Sunday was my birthday.

Friday & Saturday afternoon were spent dealing with a multitude of car issues. Yes, multiple. And the story is one of those stories that just "keeps gettin' better".

It's a blog post in itself...so stay tuned for that.

I had a fantastic birthday. First of all, Saturday night at work was out-of-control crazy busy. But, when the sun came up I was pleasantly surprised with SNOW-COVERED mountains. In fact, the entire TOWN was covered in snow!!

You're probably reading this thinking, ".....and...?"

IT'S THE FREAKING SONORAN DESERT! It NEVER snows. Ever! I am assured that this was my amazing birthday present from God. It was his way of giving me a little "taste of home". Except it felt like I was in Switzerland, not North Dakota with all the snowy mountains. Mmm

 (excuse the crappy photo -- I took this with my Blackberry in the parking lot at work in the morning)

I went home, slept for about 2 hours (yes, I know, not enough. Especially since Saturday after working I only slept 4 hours). But it was my BDAY. I was NOT sleeping it away.

I woke up and Ryan made me a latte - and I opened present, got ready, and he took me on a shopping spree.

Normally I'm not a HUGE shopper..but it's been a long time since I've shopped -- so this was fun.

Then we went out for dinner and shared a "wood-fire grilled pizza" and a "pizzookie". MUCH better than birthday cake. Mmm.

Our evening was quietly spent watching the Oscars, catching up, and having a fun night of laughter :)

Happy March to all!
