Ten on Tuesday

What a wonderful surprise to wake up and find out it's not Monday anymore!  Time for some Ten on Tuesday hosted by Chelsea at Roots and Rings.  I have no idea who came up with this round of questions, but as long as I can make just one marching band reference I'm happy.

1. Do you decorate for Valentine’s day?
No.  Winter pretty much sucks the life outta me.  The only motivation I feel to decorate comes when spring does.  No V-day, no St. Pat's Day, no Easter.  I'm a bum.

2. Does your desktop have a picture or computer graphic? Is it organized?
I have this picture on my desktop:

That's my boy Oliver with his buddy Rowdy, the only dog he's ever actually enjoyed playing with.  Sadly, Rowdy died about a year after this day.  He had a good life.  Obviously.

3. Do you use a paper planner, electric planner or no planner at all?
I've tried 'em all!  At the same time.  So I usually have plans written down, I just don't know where.

4. Do you change purses or bags often or stick with a good thing?
I usually stick with one purse for awhile, like six months.  But I would change more often if it was more convenient.  Or if I didn't shove things in it that otherwise don't have a home.  Like receipts.  Night lights.  Bottles of Tabasco sauce.

5. What’s your favorite YouTube Video?
I have a few.  Thanks to Chelsea I'm hooked on the Harvard Sailing Team videos.  Then there's my favorite commercial:

And I can watch this girl, Anjelah Johnson, forever.  Hi-lar-ious.

6. Do you use Turbo Tax or a real person to pay your taxes?
I used to do my taxes online when times were simple.  I was single.  And had one income.  Now I have a spouse who has a full time job and plays the ponies.  I also have a side business where I sell one to two pieces of jewelry every blue moon.  Stuff got tuff.

7. How many states have you set foot (or tire) in? Which ones?
Let's count: Washington-aunt lives there, Oregon-driving through, California-I lived there, Arizona-vacation, Nevada-Vegas, duh, New Mexico-driving through, Texas-driving through, took for-ev-er, Louisianna-driving through, Mississippi-granddaddy lives there, Florida-annual vacation, Tennessee-driving through, Kentucky-driving through, Indiana-I lived there, Illinois-neighbor, Michigan-neighbor and sometimes Sunday brunch, Ohio-neighbor, Pennsylvania-BFF lives there, New York-I live here, Vermont-new neighbor, Massachusettes-shopping, Connecticut-Corey's BFF lives there but I'm sure guys don't call their BFFs BFF, New Jersey-neighbor, Maryland-driving through, Delaware-driving through, Virginia-vacation, Hawaii-band (geek) trip.

Twenty-six.  I'm over halfway there.

8. How many countries have you been in? Which ones?
Just three: Canada, Mexico and Italy.  Four if you count changing planes in France.

9. How many pillows are in your house? (Sleeping or decorative)
Twelve on the bed (I think I've written before how much I love my mountain of pillows) and just two (of the softest pillows ever) on each couch.

10. How cold is too cold for flip flops?
I let my feet tell me when it's too cold.  They turn a deathly shade of blue-ish purple.  It is as gross as it sounds.


On that note...Happy Tuesday!  Hope m' dead feet don't haunt your dreams!
