11 Random Things

I saw this little meme floating around the blogisphere & secretly hoped I got tagged.  I love doing these little things and lo & behold, I am up in Target when my phone alerts me that I have a new mention on twitter.  It was my new blog friend Kristin taggin me in the very meme I was day dreaming of! Hooray!! Go on over & check out her 11 random things, she's an awesome, awesome blogger.

So here we go:

  1. Post these rules
  2. Post 11 random things about yourself
  3. Answer the questions provided by the one who tagged you
  4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag
  5. Go to their blog (or Facebook or Twitter) and tell them they’ve been tagged

My 11 things:
  1. My shoe size ranges from 9 - 10.  I always have a hard time finding shoes online because I am scared they won't fit.  Sometimes it's a 9, sometimes 9.5, sometimes a 10.  I am not sure if this is an everyone problem or just me.
  2. I started blogging in about 2006 or so.  I had a blog called Just Playing Hooking as a freshman in college.  It wasn't cool.  Not at all.
  3. MySpace is where I learned about HTML.  I'd spend hours designing the bangin'-est page ever.
  4. I love drag queens.  RuPaul's Drag Race is the bomb & I'd go to the annual drag show at my University.  I follow 4 of my fave queens on twitter, two of them follow me (#almostfamous lol)
  5. Shoes & Nail Polish are my weakness.  I have too many of both.
  6. I am horrible with directions.  I get turned around in my own house.
  7. Monday night, I helped Zach fix a computer (he's a techy guy like that).  I didn't tell him, but I felt really proud. (He needed me because my hands are smaller not because I am skilled)
  8. College was a 5 year plan for me & I had 4 majors.  Art won out & I worked my butt off to fit 4 years into 3.  It was the best time of my life.
  9. I make a mean Grilled Cheese Sandwich.
  10. Each year for the past few years I've tried to grow my hair out.  I end up cutting it all off....I am attempting to resist cutting it now!
  11. I work at a school that licenses Massage Therapists & Estheticians.  Which means sometimes I get free massages & facials.  It ain't bad.

And now for the questions that Miss Kristin asked of me:
1. What is your birthday? My birthday is 10 days before Christmas & the day after my Mother's.  It's December 15th.  My mom was in labor her whole birthday (Dec 14th) just so I could be born on my own at 1am.
2. Do you have pets? I don't personally have pets...but my parent's have a little dog named Rudy (so he's kinda my puppy brother) & my room mate has a dog named Cody (So I'm kind of his puppy aunt).  I'd like one of my own so bad!
3. What is your favorite tv show? Right now it's a toss up between RuPaul's Drag Race & New Girl.  I watch them both all the time.
4. What city and state do you live in? I am from the East Coast baby! Virginia is the state I call home.
5. What is your favorite blog to read? Oh man, this is so hard!! I love Little Chief Honeybee the most but there are plenty I look up to.  A new one is Little Tiny Pieces.
6. Beach or Mountains? Surf or Ski? Definitely the beach.  I love the water & sun but I really hate sand. I can't imagine living some place where there isn't a lake or some sort of body of water.  I am a fish!
7. Mac or PC? I am a Mac person.  My boyfriend is a PC person.  We make it work just fine :)
8. What's your favorite thing to drink? (alcoholic or non) Non-alcoholic is Sweet Tea & coffee, equally.  Man on man I love it! Alcoholic has to be Champagne & I much prefer the cheap stuff!
9. What is your career or job? By day I am an office manager at a school for Massage Therapists & Estheticians (see number 11 above).  By night I am a free lance designer, jewelry maker, ceramicist, crocheter, illustrator, & etsy shop owner.
10. What is your favorite food? OH my, I don't even know where to begin with this.  Ummmm.....Zach makes a banging bacon wrapped steak. Oh wait, I love Brussels Sprouts!
11. What is grosses you out? the sound your nails make when running them over like textured holographic trading cards, the sound that commercial about grinding your teeth makes, & sponges used to wash the dishes.  I am a dish sponge nazi...I really only like to use them like once....they get all stinky & I hate it.  I am a dish rag person.  YUCK!!
