Ten on Tuesday: I'm back!

I didn't participate in Ten on Tuesday last week because it was all about decorating and where you live.  Since I live with my parents, and just have my little crowded bedroom, the questions just made me a little depressed.

And since I'm not actually depressed about my life, at all, I decided to forgo it.  Lusting after something I don't have right now and won't have in the foreseeable future just isn't worth it.

But I'm back this week and ready to answer some questions.  Bring it Ten on Tuesday!  Let's do this!  (Also, I'm watching Biggest Loser right now, just to explain my attitude.

1. Is there a band/artist that you HATE?
I get tired of techno music REALLY fast.  It's just so dang repetitive.  I don't like heavy metal or screamo-type music.  Off the top of my head, I can't think of a specific artist I hate.

2. What do you do when you get a gift that you do not like? How do you react?
I like to think I'm gracious no matter what.  But I also can't really recall a recent present that I really didn't like.

3. How is your work office/cubicle decorated?
I don't have a work office of my own.  I share a small storage closet/cave with my fellow transcribers and I'm never in it, if I can help it.  I spend my work hours roaming a college campus and sitting in different classrooms.

4. Do you use all of your vacation every year?
I don't actually get vacation time.  What I do get are the same breaks as a student, unpaid unfortunately, but pretty awesome none-the-less.

5. Did you have a real or fake Christmas tree?
Real, all the way.  I can't actually recall ever having a fake tree.  We also like to go cut it down ourselves.

6. If you could have anything for dinner tonight, what would it be?
I've been craving gnocchi recently and I've also been wanting to try an African dish a friend has made for me before.  It's made with peanut butter, tomatoes and other deliciousness.  Maybe someday I'll actually make one or both of those.  For now, I'll just talk about it.

7. Do you bite your fingernails?
Never have, and I can't imagine starting.

8. How many cups of coffee do you drink each day?
I don't actually drink coffee every day.  A lot of mornings I drink tea.  If I do drink coffee, it's only one cup.

9. Do you have a nervous tick?
Sometimes I jiggle my leg.  I also tend to play with my hair, like french braiding it over and over.  I pick at my face, too.  Stupid adult acne.

10. How often do you vacuum?
It depends.  My room and most of our house has wood floors, so often I just sweep.  Sometimes I do vacuum out the pellet stove or the carpet in our family room, but often my dad gets to it first.


  1. I couldn't tell you how often I vacuum if I tried... it's so sporadic!

  2. tomatoes with pb?? interesting...

  3. I get tired of techno music too! My husband just started listening to electro pop music and it's not bad..


  4. I like the idea of a gray-toned nail polish on my fingers. I've been wishing I paid more attention to my nails lately! and.... peanut butter on pancakes sounds interesting - but I've got to have maple syrup (the real stuff!) Haha!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your kind comments! I really appreciate hearing from readers.

  5. Oh shoot! I just realized I left this comment on the wrong list of ten things! I meant it for the newest post, obviously! I just didn't realize where I was on the page when I started rattling on and on! Sorry!
