Getting to Know [ME]

I've decided to participate in MannLand5's "Getting to know YOU" meme! If you want to join in on the fun, visit her blog, copy the questions and paste them on your blog, then go back to her blog and link up once you've answered the questions. Easy, right?

1. What color do you wear the most?
My closet is color-coded, so I like to think I wear all colors an equal amount, but it really depends on the season. Now that it's spring, I'm in lots of navy blue/nautical clothes and bright colors. A few weeks ago, black and grey (random fact about me: I hate the American spelling "gray," I always spell it the English way, "grey." Weird, I know.) were pretty much the name of the game.

2. Would you rather have $10,000 dollars or a dream vacation?
I'd rather 10k! I could pay off some of my student loans or invest it and make a bigger profit :) I love me a vacation, but I'm not deprived in that area and could really use the money (couldn't we all???).

3. Do you have a weird, quirky or unusual habit?
HA! Yes! I'm really weird about noises. The sound of silverware scraping dishes, the sound some people make when chewing their gum, when I can hear people breathe... pretty much any noise that isn't necessary drives me bonkers! Also, pictures on the wall that are crooked-- I'll fix them every time, I don't care where I am.

4. I really need to start..........?
Taking better care of my body by eating properly and working out more.

5. What was the first blog you ever read?
Shit if I know. I know "I'm Living Proof that God has a Sense of Humor" was one of the first I ever read, but I don't think it was the first.

6. Do you collect anything?
I have a pretty ridiculous shopping habit, so from now on, I'm just going to tell people I collect shoes/clothes/jewelry! Man, I've been dying for some justification of my habit, this is perfect!

7. How old were you when you had your first kiss?
HAHA, Oh Lord, so lame-- 17 I suppose, but 18 the first time I made out. I'm such a prude.

8. Do you text/twitter while driving?
I don't twitter at all, so that's an easy no. Text? Sometimes. But I try to do it only at stoplights. I get really antsy when I know someone has texted me and I don't respond immediately. Another quirky habit, I suppose.

**Yet another prayer request: Without going into all the details (although if you're as nosey as me, you can read the article here), please pray for my neighbors. Their son was involved in a horrific accident the other night with two of his buddies. My neighbor was the driver and survived; his two friends did not. Please pray for all involved.**

*Upcoming posts: Slideshows of Hawai'i, pictures from spring, and a recap of the Carrie Underwood concert! And I'm hoping to think of something hilarious to blog about, but that's proving to be quite the challenge.*

Hope y'all are having a great weekend!

Hey Marianne! Thanks for playing..I'm gonna try and get you linked up..:-)

I get so antsy when people text me and I can't text right back..

Enjoy your day!


Momma Fargo said...

Liked your answers! I would like the 10K also.

Copyboy said...

4 I can relate to. 5 I'll definitely have to check out. Cool blog.

Melissa said...

I actually googled the word gray/grey today to see which is the correct way. I used 'Gray' because it is the American way. I think I like 'grey' better too though!

"Shit if I know." That was funny!!!

I too didn't kiss anyone until I was 17 (and I was almost 18... it was probably about 1 month before my 18th birthday).

Have a happy Sunday!

Ooooh, I'm very noise sensitive too! When Tim eats, he makes this wierd sound like he's thoroughly enjoying every single taste of his meal. It's annoying and he doesn't even realize he's doing it. Of course I always have to point it out to him.

Oh and my mom has this habit of breathing really hard. She says she doesn't hear herself but she'll just be sitting on the sofa knitting and I'm like, "why are you breathing you like you just ran a race?".

That's so sad about your neighbor...

JoeyRes said...

I'm often annoyed by the sound of my husband breathing. He thinks that has some deeper meaning!

Merri Ann said...

I wear green and pink and I collect coffee mugs.

I should do this on my blog :))

I have mom brain so bad that I can't remember what I wanted to comment about by the time I get to the comment form. I'm sure I had something to say ...

Pam said...

It says a lot about you as a person that you would choose the 10k. Lol. I would choose the 10k too but for shoe shopping purposes. I am sooo looking forward to the Carrie Underwood recap. I'm a huge fan.
I am very sorry to hear about your neighbor. What a horrific tragedy. I will pray.
PS I love my bitch sister, she is my BFF. I love my evil bitch sister too but she is a evil bitch sister and we don't talk that often.

Anne said...

Can I just say, you are a woman after my own heart...a color-coded closet? Paying off debt and investing? Collecting shoes?? I can SO relate. And BTW, I will be praying. So sad...

I Am with you on number 4! Thanks for sharing! Hope you are having a great Monday!

I am sorry I missed these past few posts. I don't blog on the weekends.

Your poor neighbor.
