Ten on Tuesday

1. Pretend it’s Monday morning–take us through a day in the life of you.
First, I wake up.  Then I walk my psycho, must-run-to-everything-that-looks-like-food dog.  This is followed by some quiet time with my Bible, which is directly followed by Saved By the Bell and breakfast.  I de-stink myself, speed to work because I'm always running late, work on a blog all day, come home, eat, talk to hubs, settle in for Matlock and ice cream, fall asleep.

2. What’s your favorite reality TV show?
None.  The bachelor-type shows are too addicting, so I stay away, and the American Idol type shows have too much fluff so I get bored.

3. What motto do you live by?
"Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."  James 1:2-4

Is that a motto?

4. If you knew could you try anything and not fail, what dream would you attempt?
I would lead art tours of Florence, Italy.  Which basically means I would point out every other house and building as artistically relevant.

5. What was your first job?
I worked for our local hospital in the cafeteria for two years in high school.  I gave cranky nurses extra mashed potatoes because they would yell at me if I didn't.

6. What is your current job?
I am technically a Legislative Assistant to a New York State Senator.  But there is nothing legislative about my job.  I am the complaint department.  Anyone in the district who has an issue with child support, welfare, electricity, retirement, workers' compensation, unemployment, education and other miscellaneous issues goes through me.

7. What would you call yourself if you could choose your own name (and you cannot pick the one you already have)?
I like the weird celebrity names, so I would be an Apple, or a Velvety Blue, or a Chimichanga.  Something unique like that.

8. What musical instruments can you play?
I grew up in the band instrument capital of the world.  And I was geeky.  So I played the trombone.  I'm not sure if I could still play, though.  The guy who yanked out my wisdom teeth left half of my bottom lip numb, and I would kinda need it to play.

9. Is it easier to forgive or forget?

10. What is one food you’d never want to taste again?
The "gizzard" sandwich I accidentally ordered in Italy.  I thought I was getting chicken, but what I put in my mouth was something slimy and weird and definitely not chicken.

I didn't know that's what you did for a job. What's up, fancypants?

That sandwich sounds vile, but the dream job does not.

I love the names you mentioned. Your dream job sounds like a lot of fun!

I didn't know there was a band instrument capital of the world...

6. My husband did a similar thing as an internship through college. Basically people called and he had to listen.

Please don't change your name to Chimichanga!
And I am stealing your motto! (I wasn't sure if a verse qualified as a motto...)
