Ten on Tuesday

Love the questions for today.  On a randomness scale of 1 to blue, I'd say these questions are a pineapple.

1. What is the weather like in your city today?
Tuesday morning: 60 degrees and very cloudy.  We're supposed to get rain and thunderstorms the next three days.  Yay.

(but secretly, I really do like inclement weather...)

2. Do you like the zoo?
I have mixed feelings about zoos.  I love animals.  Love, love, love.  And I like going to zoos where they really take care of their animals.  But then there are some that use the animals to make money and that makes me want to break in and rescue them.

My landlord barely allows a dog of Oliver's size.  I can't imagine he'd be too happy about monkeys and tigers and emus and reindeer.

3. Do you eat coconut?
I could take it or leave it.  I'm never really itchin' for some coconut cream pie, but if my choice is between that and a carrot cake I'll take the coconut every time.

Carrots do not belong in cakes, but that's for another time.

4. Have you ever hammered a nail? Are you good at it?
I have not only manually hammered a nail, I have nail gunned a nail...if that's the proper use of, um, never mind.  I'm a big fan of nailing stuff together, but as an apartment dweller I don't have much use for a hammer and nails, besides hanging pictures which is so boring.

5. Does your family have a vacation destination that you visit often?
Corey and I usually go to Palm Beach in the early spring.  It's a nice little getaway.  We know what we like: walks on the beach, Charlie's Crab, Norton Museum of Art, City Place, laying by the pool.  And what we don't like: Checkers, Dixie Highway, IHOP, Florida drivers.

6. How many pillows do you sleep with?
I start with two, then I get a cramp in my neck and end up with one.  And every single time I go through this pillow rotation/elimination process I think to myself, "Why do you even try to use two pillows?  It never works!"  But alas, I never learn.

7. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
Check my email then check the weather and hope it's too cold/raining to walk the dog.  Getting up at 5:40am is actually not my favorite part of the morning.

8. Will you send your kids to summer camp?
Hecks yeah.  I had so. much. fun at all of my summer camps.  My kids will be going.  And they will like it.

Side note:  anyone ever watch Bug Juice on the Disney Channel?  I was soooo hooked.  (I had younger sisters, don't judge.)

9. What do you put in your baked potatoes?
Regular potatoes: tub o' sour cream and whatever we have in the fridge.  Sweet potatoes: brown sugar and maple syrup...mmmmm.

10. Did you take swimming lessons as a kid?
Oh yes.  I went all the way up to the dolphin level, I even took diving lessons.  But I stopped before the top level, the shark, because they had to touch the bottom of the deep end and I had this minor issue of, well, panicking under water.


See?  Random.  Now go show Chelsea some love for breakin' her brain over 'em.

I have mixed feeling about the zoo in the same respect that you do, because I want the animals to be well cared for. But my selfishness takes over because I just love being able to watch all of the magnificent creatures that I normally wouldn't get to look at if we didn't have zoos. Ha!

Bug Juice...yes! Like you, I enjoy inclement weather as well. Plus it makes the sunny days that much more wonderful.
