Fun Facts… Saturday?

I had this post all written up to post yesterday, you know because it was Friday, but I never hit publish.  Whoops!  Here it is anyway.  Better late than never!

Remember all those email surveys that used to get sent around in college between your friends?  Here’s the blog version!  I got the idea from Tina Reale at Best Body Fitness and thought it sounded like fun.  Sometimes I think I hold back and don’t share enough of myself.  It’s something I struggle with because I still feel very new to this putting-myself-out-there-on-the-internet thing.  But I figure it’s about time to let my readers know a little more about me!

1) What is one of your favorite ways to spend a Saturday?

Sleeping in, working out in the mid to late morning, doing some shopping, relaxing, or stuff around the house, and hanging out with friends in the evening.

2) List your top three favorite TV shows.

Let’s stick with shows that are currently on TV, shall we?  And I have 4:

White Collar, The Big Bang Theory, NCIS, & How I Met Your Mother.

Seriously, how cute is Matt Bomer as Neal Caffrey from White Collar??  Yum!

3) Would you rather be in pictures or take them?

Both.  I’m a ham and I love taking/having lots of pictures of everyone.  Give me a camera and I’ll amuse myself for hours!

4) Why do you blog?

I love writing, sharing, and connecting with others.  It provides a much needed outlet for my thoughts.

5) Share five websites that you visit regularly…

Gmail, Facebook, Google Reader, my bank’s website, and Netflix.

6) If you could have lunch with one person from your Twitter list who would it be?

Lance Armstrong.  I’d like to pick his brain a little :)

7) List a few of your favorite snacks.

Sweet bell peppers & hummus or chips & salsa.  I like to dip things!

8 ) Do you have a pet? If so, what kind?

I have a German Shepherd named Dean…

… and my roommate has a Siberian Husky named Satchmo.

They’re both pretty awesome.

9) Which three material possessions would you struggle to live without?

Laptop (Macbook Pro), iPhone, Camera

(technology junkie)

10) What’s your favorite drink?

It really depends on my mood.  I drink water most often.  With it being cold lately though I’ve been thinking a lot about my all-time favorite tea.  It’s from Whittard of Chelsea and I fell in love with it when I was studying abroad in London.  If only I had some right now!

11) Do you enjoy cooking?

I do, but I’m not great at it.  I’ve gotten a lot better though.  My roommate is a good teacher!

12) Do you have children?


13) What are your favorite hobbies?

Playing pool, working out, and playing board/card/trivia games.

14) Would you consider yourself to be shy or outgoing?

I’m pretty outgoing.

15) If you could change one thing about yourself, what would you change?

If I’m being serious, I would learn to better cheer myself up.  Usually I’m a happy person but when I do get down I have a hard time pulling myself out of it.  I get overwhelmed and I can’t see the positive or I don’t believe that things will get better.

If I’m being shallow, I want smaller calves.  They are quite muscular, which isn’t bad, but I have NEVER been able to wear tall boots!  Le sigh.

16) Who is your favorite actor/actress?

I have a huge soft spot for John Cusack (due to all his awesome 80’s movies) and Tom Cruise (he may be crazy, but he’ll always be Maverick to me!).

17) What’s the coolest thing you’ve done this week?

I went to a local minor league hockey game on Tuesday night.  That was pretty fun and not something I do all the time.

18) Do you live near your family or far from them?

Far.  They all moved south for the warmer weather and it’s a long way from Illinois to Georgia.

19) List three of your talents.

  • Planning.  I love planning trips and get together and I’m good at it.  Hand in hand with this is making fantastically awesome Excel spreadsheets with cool functionality (nerd alert!)
  • Making people laugh.  I’m generally quirky and weird so it comes naturally.
  • Trivia.  I know a lot of random stuff!

20) What is your greatest attribute?

I’m an extremely caring and loyal friend.  I’ll do anything for and drop everything to be there for the people I love.

So fun to read your answers! :)

And you should come visit the fam in GA and then sneak away to play board games or trivia wiht me. I’m a junkie for things like that too.

Oh that would be fun! So many people don’t like trivia because they think they’re bad at it. Makes me sad! :)
