I’ve been remiss in blogging about anything of late, and have even gotten behind in the Share Your World Q & A, so here is my quick attempt at catching up.
Questions: Is your hair short (total neck and ear showing), medium (covering ears and neck), long (below shoulders) or extra long (at least halfway down your back)?
Answer: My hair is typically in a pixie, shaped to my head and around my ear. At the request of my hubby and son I am attempting to grow it out in 2013 but I usually only last a month or two before the new growth starts to tickle my ears and neck and so I give in and get it chopped off. For now it’s shaggy short and head bands are my new best friend to keep the bangs out of my eyes during the day.
Question: What is your favorite color of hair? You can name your hair color or a color that you just like.
Answer: I’m a brunette and I do honestly believe that we have the most fun but I like pretty much all hair colors and think it’s fun to switch it up every once in a while whether it’s a quick change out with a wig, hair piece or some spray in color or a professionally highlighted job. Or in the case of my son, some extra strong hair gel with a little food coloring thrown in for fun.
Question: Which bad habits, if any, drive you crazy?
Answer: There are a couple – folks who constantly interrupt others (which I sometimes do and I think that’s why it drives me so crazy) and when people are rude to those providing service of some kind to them. I believe you can really tell the measure of a person by the way they treat their wait staff. If they can’t be kind and courteous during the most basic of exchanges how will they treat you in the long run, especially in times of challenge? Just think about it, and don’t bother wasting your time on them.
Question: What are some of your favorite type of proteins to eat? (meat, eggs, soy, cheese, nuts)
Answer: Cheese, cheese, cheese. I honestly believe I could give up meat, eggs, etc. but I’d be miserable if I couldn’t have a taste of really good cheese.
This is a little different from weeks past. Instead of specific questions, here is Cee’s inquiry.
Almost everyone has heard of a bucket list which is a list of things you want to do before you die. List 4 things off your bucket list that you would like to share with us. Assume that money is no object. Have a lot of fun with it. Would you like to fly to the moon, dive to the bottom of the ocean, live a month in India or learn how to tap dance? What is on your list?
There are a lot of things on my list from little to BIG. My first would be to travel the world – alone, with my hubby, with my son. We wouldn’t have to do the whole thing together but I’d like to share parts of the journey with each of them individually and collectively as a family. Going along with that vein in mind I’d like to learn to at least speak conversationally in a foreign tongue in the majority of places that I intend to visit for more than two weeks at a time beginning with Italian. I think it’s such a beautiful language. My son on the other hand wants to learn Spanish and Mandarin so I guess I’ll have to learn those as well in order to keep up with him.
I’ve always wanted to obtain a pilot’s license but due to health issues it wouldn’t be safe for me to really do but I’d still love to take a plane up with an experienced pilot and be allowed to take control if even for only a moment or two.
I want to publish a children’s book… and yes, self publishing would count. I’d partner with a bold illustrator who would bring my book to life along with my words and no pastels would be allowed.
I want to take cooking lessons with my husband – doesn’t matter what kind, it could be sushi making, or Best of BBQ, or creating the perfect salted caramels just so long as we could do it together. I love cooking with him in the kitchen and we don’t do it near as often as we did when we were in the courtship phase of our relationship and I miss it.
So that’s it in a nut shell. I’m caught up and current and now am just wondering what you would do for your bucket list? Anyone want to share?
