Ten on Tuesday

Hello, Tuesday.  And hello to you, too, blizzard warning to last until tomorrow.  I welcome you and your frozen gifts with open arms, a fuzzy hat, and snow boots.

But that sounds weird.

Anyway, on to my TENs!

1. Is there a band/artist that you HATE?
From the deepest, darkest, grossest part of my soul I strongly dislike Third Eye Blind.  Before my freshman year of college I went to a concert with my super-fan friend Carla (we were friends for years and yet I still don't know the right way to spell her name...Carla...Karla...??) where I stood the entire night pressed up against hundreds of drunk, smelly people.  The music was terrible and the bassist was a real look-at-me-I'm-the-coolest-person-I-know-here-have-some-sweat kind of jerk.  I ended up almost passing out and having to rush to the EMT guys.

2. What do you do when you get a gift that you do not like? How do you react?
If someone has taken the time and effort to get me something they think I will like, I like the gift.  I may not use it.  But I will keep it, I will remember fondly the person who gave it to me, and I will have a very hard time parting with it should the time come.

Currently sitting next to my computer I have two painted eggs given to me by a co-worker almost three years ago and a little snowman with my name spelled wrong by the little old man who uses our office to do volunteer work.  He found it at a flea market and thought of me.  I can honestly say I will never ever give it away.

3. How is your work office/cubicle decorated?
See above.  Now, see below:

Ok.  It appears today is one of those days blogger does not feel like flipping pictures.  Why does she have to be so fickle?  Anyway, this is my desk.  If you click on the picture you can see my narrations. 

You'll also want to see this:

you're welcome

4. Do you use all of your vacation every year?
I work for the state, unless I take about half the year off I will never use up all of my vacation time.

5. Did you have a real or fake Christmas tree?
Real.  I enjoy the hassle of it all (read: watching Corey struggle with the thing and laughing hysterically while taking pictures)

6. If you could have anything for dinner tonight, what would it be?
I am so in the mood for PW's caramelized onion and prosciutto pizza.  Best thing I've ever had.

7. Do you bite your fingernails?
I was blessed with rock hard nails.  Biting them hurts my teeth.

8. How many cups of coffee do you drink each day?
None.  Exposure to extreme coffee breath early in life has been a huge deterrent for me.  Plus I think it tastes nasty.

9. Do you have a nervous tick?
Um, I don't think so.  But I do bite my lip, talk a lot, wiggle and nearly pee my pants when I'm nervous.  Does that count?

10. How often do you vacuum?
Don't even get me started...but since you already have, I have not once vacuumed since getting our new vacuum contraption.  Corey always beats me to it.  One of these days when I get off early that's what I'm gonna do.  I'm going to vacuum everything and it is going to be magical.

Wait.  What am I saying??

And the snowman story is too sweet! I would never part with it either.
