Ten on Tuesday

I am snowed in! It's not as bad as some of the storms we had last year, but I would say 8 inches in 24 hours is a pretty significant storm. I was keeping an eye on the schools though and was curious if WDSM or DSM would cancel, and they didn't. My teacher friends on Facebook did not sound happy.

Nonetheless, I am enjoying my time. I am relaxing, sleeping in, drinking coffee and cuddling with my boys. You know, Chico and Zeke. :)

So, to make this Ten on Tuesday as authentic as possible I have only read one other blog that participates because I always end up having to steal someone else's answer and I hate that, but once I've read theirs I can't think of anything original! I hate that!

1. Is there a band/artist that you HATE?

I loathe The Beastie Boys. I don't know what it is about their voices... I just cannot stand them. I have to change the station when they come on the radio.

2. What do you do when you get a gift that you do not like? How do you react?

Rack my brain to try and remember what the return policy is. I would always react with gratitude because it is the thought that counts!

3. How is your work office/cubicle decorated?

I don't have an office or cube! I have a corner of the dining room where I have fashioned a mini study area though! It's pretty boring... it's just got all my office supplies, printer, school stuff, laptop... etc. I would love, love, love a third bedroom for a study room/office but... we don't have that. We're thinking about moving in the spring, but still not sure.

4. Do you use all of your vacation every year?

Absolutely! I don't let any of that stuff go wasted. EVER! Why would you?! My old boss (ha! feels good to say that) used to brag how she never used all of her sick time because she just doesn't get sick. Every time she did that I wanted to snap and say you're an idiot. That is benefit time that you EARN. Use it! I don't get sick often, but you can bet on it that if I have a bad headache or migraine like I tend to do once a month, I'm using my sick time.

5. Did you have a real or fake Christmas tree?

Fake. It's an old hand me down from my parents! It's a fiber optic tree that I think looks so pretty and reminds me of when I was younger. (yeah, it's old...)

6. If you could have anything for dinner tonight, what would it be?

Ok, this one I have to steal from Kara (the only blog I've read so far this morning!). She chose king crab legs and I have to do so too! I looooooooove crab legs. Love them! It's such a fun meal to have with friends and it's so good and actually good for you! (unless you slather it in butter....)

7. Do you bite your fingernails?

I used to, but not anymore! I love to paint my nails every few days and biting them would just make my manicure look ugly!

8. How many cups of coffee do you drink each day?

Probably 2-4... The mug I use holds 2 cups, and I usually have at least one of those a day.

9. Do you have a nervous tick?

Yup, my eye twitches when I'm really, really stressed out. I absolutely hate it and it makes me crazy. Funny, my job in retail made my eye twitch all the time. I learned to control it, but sometimes that is impossible!

10. How often do you vacuum?

Every other day or so. I love to vacuum (I know, I'm weird) and we have three dogs and a cat so we vacuum a lot. :)

What's your Ten on Tuesday? Are you snowed in today?

I always use vacation days. I usually carry a week or so over, but I always, always use them. People who don't are crazy.

I am not snowed in yet, but the forecasters are predicting the snow to start falling in a bit.

Heather said...

I cant stand the Beastie Boys either. Their songs are obnoxious.

Lisa from Lisa's Yarns said...

I wish I loved to vacuum as much as you do! That is my least fave thing to do I think!!

Ugh, I am glad we didn't get as much snow as you guys did! I am so so so sick of snow!

Kara said...

I wish we got enough snow here to get snowed in! Maybe I can pretend and just not go to work! lol

Amber Tidd Murphy said...

We got about 4 inches. It didn't start snowing until after 8:00 a.m. or something, but they went ahead and called school off bc we were expecting the 4 inches by 2-4:00p.m.

I figure you would find that funny... calling school off before it even snowed!

We weren't snowed in, though... we took Stella to her one month pediatrician's appointment.

Sam said...

I would definitely use up all of my vaca days. And I hate vacuuming, wanna come vacuum my house? hah! :)

Ha ha! I kind of like the Beastie Boys--it must be the immature 12 year old boy in me. I have one of those, ya know!
