That was me yesterday. No sleep, sore throat, earache, no fun.

Natalie nominated me for this weeks ago and I’ve been too scattered to address it. Thanks, Natalie!


Okay, ten things about me you may not already know.

1) I waffle. I can never make a straight decision. Everything has to be weighed and measured, and even then I second-guess myself. For heaven’s sake, I still have $20 from the Amazon gift card I won last month. Can’t decide how to spend it.

2) Surprisingly, however, I do not like to eat waffles. Too crunchy. I’m not much of a fan of pancakes, either. Unless they have chocolate chips.

3) I have the same thing for breakfast every day but Sunday, and every Sunday I go to the same restaurant and have the same thing. The waitresses don’t even bring me menus anymore.

4) I can apparently turn every topic to the subject of food.

5) When the dh had to back up his laptop, I had 1200 items in folders. What are they? Who knows? Clearly I hoard digitally.

6) I have my library card number memorized. This is handy when I’m placing items on hold.

7) I’m pretty sure I’m over Gerard Butler.

8) I always say I want a day where I can just read, but I never do it.

9) I don’t really like to drive—maybe because I make a 45 minute round trip every day? During time off, I never drive more than five miles from home. When Trish is here, she drives, and I forget to give her directions.

10) I love shoes. I own a lot of them. And spend most of my life in Crocs or Eastlands.

    Mary, thank you for listing me as one of your favorite blogs. I love your LOL's and guys (and by the way, who's the new guy? He's cute!)

    I read your blog every day, though I don't always comment. New guy played young Papa Winchester on Supernatural. He's terribly young, but perfect for the story I'm writing.

    #4. Me, too! LOL When I did this, I could probably have done all 10 about food quirks.#6. My kids have theirs memorized, but not me, though I've used it enough that I should have.#8. Same here. Never works out. 😦

    Awww.. thanks!And, I have my library card number memorized, too. I use it constantly!I love waffles, adore pancakes and driving is my great passion. If it wouldn't stress out DH so much, I'd take a cross-country driving trip in my car.:-)

    Natalie, one of my students has his card memorized. It would be good if he was checking out actual books, though :)Marianne, really, you'd do a road trip by yourself? Trish does it all the time but it would scare me to death!
