Ten On Tuesday

30 Mar

It’s time for ToT, my sister-in-law’s fun blog feature! I’m typing this on my phone, so please forgive any typos… Also, I’m typing this at 5:45am, because I can’t sleep. Don’t expect much, haha.

1. What television character do you identify with?

I’m not much of a tv watcher (my dvr records Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and Masterpiece… Nerd alert!). So I will have to stretch it and say Eliza Bennett fom Pride and Prejudice, the BBC version. That originated on tv, so it counts. If you haven’t watched it, you just come right over to my house and we can watch all 6 hours together. Everyone could relate to this story – amazing for something written 200 years ago!

2. Describe your morning routine.

Wake up later than I should. Check and reply to email etc. from my phone, maybe read a few websites. Get up, brush teeth, hair, take vitamin, and lately: dose of allergy medicine. Get dressed. Grab breakfast and lunch. I usually eat breakfast at my desk. Wow, that was boring. Almost put me back to sleep!

3. How do you do lunch? Bring from home or dine out? Same thing every day or mix it up?

I usually bring a weight watchers smart one. Many weeks I have at least one luncheon or event with lunch served. I also work with an awesome group of girls, and every so often we will go to lunch together.

4. What is one moment that, although seemingly trivial at the time, changed your life?

Well, when I signed up to do the Crawl For Cancer, it didn’t seem trivial; it was a ton of work! But I didn’t realize that planning that huge event would help me find my dream job in the career path I’ve always hoped to be on. Yay!

5. Name your top three beauty products.

– concealer – hmm am I supposed to know the brands? It’s a stick that you twist and it goes onto an applicator sponge. Perfect for covering up the puffy bags under my eyes from allergies.
– perfume – I don’t wear much make up, but I wear perfume every day. Quelles-ques Fluers, Marc Jacobs, and Armani.  Not all at the same time.
– moisturizer – my mother looks at least 10 years younger than her true age, and her secret is moisturizing every day. Every day. I’m trying to emulate her, and it’s hard. My lovely friend Karen is an aesthitician in L.A. and I buy the skin-care she sells . It’s wonderful!

6. What do you do when you’re alone in the car?

Listen to NPR or music. Not much, I guess. I talk to myself sometimes. That shouldn’t surprise anyone who is familiar with my chattiness!

7. What is the ideal city for you to live in? If you can, take this survey (< that’s a link) and tell us the results. Do you agree with them?

Well, my top three were Orlando, West Palm Beach, and Houston.  Florida has 12.2 unemployment right now, so I’m thinking I’m in the right place!  Other intriguing suggestions were Augusta, GA, Charleston, SC and Memphis, TN…  Guess the survey took my aversion to snow seriously.

8. Are you waiting for something?

My allergies to be over. Ugh.

9. What was the last shocking news you heard?

I was going to say Jessie James cheating, but really, not too much of a shock for celebrities to act like idiots.

10. What are three things you wouldn’t do for a million dollars?

Cheat on my boyfriend, touch a live cockroach, or get naked in public.

    I am glad to see the answer to #10!
    My Top 4 Spots were:
    Cincinatti, OH
    Albany, NY
    Knoxville, TN
    Carlisle, PA

    I have never had any desire to live in Cincy or Albany, but I think the Carlisle choice is kind of funny.

      Do you like #10 because it’s your job to kill the cockroaches? So territorial…

      Carlisle PA has to be the most random suggestion ever. I’m starting to suspect that these cities paid to be the top choices :).

      Just thought of another answer for #10 – you couldn’t pay me $1 million to be an accountant. No siree.

    I’m always on my phone before I get out of bed in the morning. Thank goodness for smart phones!

    Why thank you for the compliment! As I face the big 5-0 head on, it’s nice to read that!
