@danadelphia: I am ridiculously jealous that you’re going to Harry Potter world. I tried to get Fiance to extend our layover in Miami on our way to our honeymoon so we could drive up to Orlando for a few days but he said no. I’m so sad. However, I’m making him take me to the HP exhibit at the science centre as revenge for his meanness 😉 Have you played the Lego Harry Potter game for Wii?! So much fun!!!

(1) I hate feet on the dashboard. I don’t care if the feet are pretty and have a new pedicure on it, I still hate it and don’t want to see it when I’m driving.

(2) I love Nutella. It reminds me of childhood and I have a piece of toast with it everyday.

(3) I love getting rebate checks back in the mail. To me it’s like finding money in the laundry…woot woot!

(4) I live in a beach city but haven’t been to the beach in 3 years.

(5) Breakfast used to be my favorite meal of the day. What’s not to love? Bacon, sausage, omelettes, hashbrowns, etc. Then I started grad school and they served it every weekend for 2 years straight. Now breakfast is my least favorite meal of the day.

(6) I love drinking water and will only drink tea, juice and soda when water is not available. I hate the taste of real coffee but will eat coffee-flavored candy, cake and ice cream.

(7) I can of caffeinated soda keeps me up at night.

(8) I wish I could walk my cat around the neighborhood kinda like how people walk their dogs.

(9) I can’t sew or garden to save my life.

(10) I will forever love Cheezballs and discovered they sold the fake kind at Costco…dangerous!

hmmmm why not!

1.  I’m a waitress and find about 78% of people who come out to eat reeeaaally super annoying.  (But I’ve never done anything to anyone’s food, nor seen anything done to anyone’s food!)

2.  I’ve been a vegetarian since I was 9, and trying to be a vegan while in the US because I hate how farming has become a factory process here 🙁

3.  We got a dog named Buster when I was like, 8 years old, and he lived a really long time and died when I was like 23 or 24.  That has been the hardest thing I ever went through.

5. I grew up in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

9. I always have at least 2 hair ties on my right wrist. Always.

This thread is funny!

I feel like I am in a rut right now and I feel like to moving to CA, although I literally am moving into a different (but nicer) apartment in WI at the moment.  By the way, I just discovered the joy of non-chlorine bleach for the bathroom.  It smells so much better.

I miss Fiance because he is working 12 hour days 4 days a week.

I just made an amazing tortellini dinner.  And I ate like 3 times as many calories today as I should have.  But moving makes me hungry. 

I am craving a road trip OUT of the freaking MIDWEST.  Sorry, I love some things about WI, but mostly, the vanilla is too strong.  I am craving my free spirit friends from far off places.

My sister just got an apartment at Central Park West and yes I am jealous.  84th.

I am trying to decide between graduate school, my own business, maybe both?

I am pinching pennies, but there are a million movies I want to see right now.

1) Let’s see – right now I should go and feed my sugar gliders, but hey, they’re still asleep (they have a silly sleep schedule for being nocturnal!) so no harm done.

2) I have a FoodNetwork obsession!

3) My boyfriend loves to jump out and scare the sh*t out of me at least once a day. You’d think I would have gotten used to this by now, but no, I still scream every time.

4) I have a calculus test on Thurs that I’m planning on not studying for until the last possible moment lol.

5) I just moved in with the boyfriend this past weekend. Love it so far!

6) My little sister is playing soccer in Germany right now. I am so jealous! Especially with the world cup going on.

7) I <3 unicorns. Way too much for any grown up girl!

8) I’ve lost 12.4lbs so far on my diet, and I’m SO not trying that hard. I really ought to.

9) I’m super worried about next semester. I’m taking 22 hours and am probably going to be in over my head. :/

10) My favorite tv show of all time is Battlestar Galactica. I cried several times during its duration. I bawled like a baby the last episode. Kind of embarrasing.

Yay! These are my fav!

  1. I really need to get back to knitting- I hurt my arm a week ago and haven’t been able to knit but stuff has been selling on etsy (yay!)
  2. I have a MAJOR shopping problem. I don’t think there is a day while I’m at work and I don’t order something.
  3. I have a really hard time spending money on stuff we actually need vs stuff I want to buy.
  4. I quit tanning in April it was really hard for me. Thank god for this 90 degree weather to tan me up!
  5. I only agree to watch some of the “man” shows with FH if there is a cute guy on it.
  6. I HATE gardens. When I was a kid my mom put a new one in every year so we had less and less room to play. She now has 23!
  7. I like hot sauce, onions, tomatoes & lettuce on my egg & cheese breakfast sandwich.
  8. I don’t understand why heavy people wear clothes they shouldn’t. I’m 120 lbs and if I wouldn’t wear it why do you think you should?! I’m all about dressing sexy but unless you are on the beach I don’t want to see your stomach or ass cheeks.
  9. I have diarrhea of the mouth.
  10. I love reading celeb gossip but I have no idea what most of the movie starts names are!

1)      I heart the color orange. My kitchen is orange and so is my standmixer.

2)      I love gigantic shrimp cocktails. Big fat meaty sweet shrimp with spicy cocktail sauce.  Yum. But I always feel like Ursulla from The Little Mermaid dropping one into my mouth.

3)      I’m weening myself off the fake sugars.

4)      I don’t have a green thumb. I HATE gardening.

5)      My favorite body products come from Savor on Etsy.

6)      I hope that awareness becomes more of a priority in schools AND at home in regards to teen pregnancy. I find it really sad to see 15 year olds with a big ole belly.

7)      I play Angry Birds on the potty at work

8)       I like mayonnaise and ketchup on hashbrowns and fried potatoes. Healthy, no?

9)      I never thought I’d be one of those girls getting their nails done every few weeks (waste of money!) but here I am, with nicely polished French tips every 3 weeks.

10)   Sometimes I like being an engineer simply for the shock factor. I think it’s hilarious that people just assume I’m a big ole smarty pants and that I’m good in math (when in fact, I almost didn’t pass calculus).

@Miss Seaman: You should be worried about taking 22 hrs. next semester. As a college professor, I have to ask why. I know most students want to get finished ASAP, but your GPA is important!

1. I have 0 creativity. My elementary art teacher told me that I was “artistically retarded”. Ever since then, I don’t even bother to try. But I guess budget wedding planning requires creativity. Thank goodness for Mom 🙂 -kinda wedding related, Sorry!

2. Today is my Fiance and I’s 3 year anniversary. 

3. I had foot surgery 6 weeks ago and I am going to drive for the first time today. 

4. I have an obsession with tshirts. You’ll rarely find me wearing any other type of shirt. They are comfy.

5. I’ve lost 5 pounds since my surgery. I’m not sure how when I was just sitting on the couch everyday. But I’m happy about ti!

6. I’m nervous about school this semester. I have 2 major thesises (sp?) to write. One for my history program and one for the honors program. Ugh.

7. I’m lactose intolerant but in the summer I can’t resist ice cream. 

8. I peel the brown part of my hamburger bums and it eat first. Then I eat the rest of the bun. It makes it last longer.

9. I have 2 cats, Blue and Benny, and 1 golden retriever, Buford (named after the Civil War cavalry commander).

10. I’ve done nothing this summer (thanks to my surgery), so I am dyingggg to go to an amusement park. Rollercoasters make me happy.

1. I love pickles and my Fiance hates the smell. Sometimes I’ll eat one right before he gets home just to see him squirm.

2. I refuse to watch movies that are sad so I won’t cry during it. 

3. I work in sports and love when people (especially guys) are caught off guard when I know about sports. 

4. I’m a control freak and have trouble delegating things to other people.

5. When I have a new favorite song, I’ll listen to it nonstop. I’ve had one song on repeat on my iPod for two straight days.

6. I have an obsession with buying TV shows on DVD. I’ll sometimes buy a season and never watch it. 

7. I’m beyond excited about our trip to Florida in two weeks because I can’t wait to see the new Harry Potter park at Universal.

8. I’m left handed but grew up playing sports right handed.

9. I have a dog, Indiana, and a cat, Bellatrix. They’re both spoiled.

10. I’m from Connecticut but live in Missouri. I like telling people I’m not from the Midwest.
