11 Randoms

I needed a nudge in the blogging direction after slacking for a while so it was a nice surprise when Ellie tagged me in her post yesterday, forcing me to contribute to her craziness. This is why I love her in real life and on her blog. You never know what's coming next from this woman.  

The Rules:
  • Post these rules
  • You must post 11 random things about yourself
  • Answer the questions set for you in their post
  • Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer
  • Go to their blog and tell them you’ve tagged them
11 random factoids about me:
  • I dyed my hair purple in high school. It looked jet black indoors, but in the sun you could tell it was purple. I was the only one who liked it, but since I'm so pale, I looked gothic. My hair has been every shade of brown and red too, but I haven't dyed it since college. 
  • I ran cross country and track from 7th grade to my freshman year of college. Even made it to nationals in high school, but got burnt out and decided to quit. I regret it to this day, but I've run two 1/2 marathons in the past few years without any training at all so I still have it in me somewhere.
  • I hate flossing. Hate it.
  • Belly buttons make me want to vomit. Don't show me yours, don't touch mine. *Shudder*
  • I don't drink. Believe it. I hate the taste of wine, beer, liquor... everything. I drank in college on occasion, mostly straight shots of Everclear. True story. I can't sip on a drink, I have to get it down fast or it won't happen. I go straight to the headache phase then feel the need to chug water to get rid of it. I've only been hungover once. I have never thrown up from drinking, and yes I was in college for a full 4 years.
  • I pierced my tongue out of boredom while waiting for my friend to get a tattoo. I kept it for a few years, then took it out but my tongue is scarred for life.
  • I'm OCD when it comes to organization. A place for everything and everything in it's place are words I live by. 
  • I attended a college I never visited. Ellie (who sent me these 11 questions) went there and liked it so I figured it was good enough for me. The first time I saw the place was during orientation. I couldn't have picked a better fit for me. Made amazing friends and met my husband so I guess I have El to thank for it all.
  • My major was "undecided" until my junior year of college and I still don't know what I really want to do with my life. I graduated with a BA in Organizational Communication with a minor is Speech Communication but have no idea what to do with it. I hate when people say comm is a cop-out major, I loved the classes. We don't all want to be physicists. What's so wrong with a little marketing and public relations?
  • I like details. A lot. I want to know as much info as possible about anything and everything. There's no such thing as over explaining in my eyes.
  • I detest Harry Potter, Twilight and Star Wars. Stop trying to make me watch the movies. Seriously, it's annoying.
11 questions from Ellie: 
  • What’s your biggest pet peeve? When people cancel plans on me at the last minute. Or ever.  
  • Who’s your favorite author? Sloane Crosley, even though she's only written 2 books and they're both just chapters of short essays. She's hilarious!
  • Where’s the next vacation/trip you’re taking? Going on a cruise to the Bahamas at the end of February. Insert "sinking ship" joke here, I'm still not worried.
  • Who will win the super bowl – Giants or Patriots? I don't care much for either team, but I want the Giants to win because I'm not a Chad Ochocinco fan since he left the Bengals after being an egotistical tool. Oh a simple "Giants" would have answered the question? My bad.
  • What’s your dessert of choice? Brownie, but hold the ice cream & hot fudge. I could care less about that part. 
  • If you could have a superhero power, what would it be? To know when people are lying to me. Is that a superhero power? If not, it should be.  
  • What’s the best thing about blogging? I write what I would want to read about if I were blog hopping. Sarcasm is the spice of life, so the best thing is finding other people who appreciate the humor in everyday situations.
  • Would you rather drive in rain or snow? Rain. No question.
  • What kind of car do you drive? My Ford Escape or my husband's Chevy Silverado
  • How do you spend your free time? Hanging out with my husband and cats, maybe reading a book, occasionally watching tv.
  • If you could meet a celebrity, who & why? Julia Roberts because I bet she would be fun to be around.
My Questions for Those Who are Tagged:

(I'm still working on this part. I'm not sure I even know 11 people who blog! I'm a newbie, remember? Dilemmas, dilemmas.)

Love all your answers! I think sarcasm is essential, well for my blog anyway and I love reading other blogs that are similar to mine!

I think the Giants should win because, too, think there is a tool playing for the Patriots. His name is Tom, Tom Brady. Don't like him one bit.

Julia Roberts- LOVE LOVE LOVE her!

These are great answers. Thanks for the info! Have a wonderful day!
