Ten on Tuesday: Ringing in 2012

I'm making a last minute effort to join in on Ten on Tuesday.  Tonight was my first class of the quarter. And while I am excited, it was a little bittersweet for my too-short break to end.

Even though Tuesday's basically over, if you still want to join in, you can.  I won't judge.  Just visit Chelsea's blog.

1. What did you get for Christmas?
Well, I already unveiled my quilt (the star of the show), I also got books, a cool vase, a few skirts, a button up shirt, sweet boots, a nice casserole dish, and the naked eyeshadow palette.  There were a few other things, but that's the gist of it.

2. Have you taken down your Christmas decorations?
I personally didn't have any decorations.  My roommate took hers down yesterday, Monday, something.

3. What did you do for New Year's Eve?
The roomies and I went to NY Pizza and Bar to hang out prior to fireworks, but we ran out of steam and ended up at home in sweats before midnight.  We are crazy like that.

4. Do you like accents?
Of course.  Sometimes I wish I had one.  I also feel so proud of myself when I understand someone with a thick accent.

5. What kind of television do you have?
I just have to come out and admit this.  I have a 50" LG plasma flatscreen.  It was a splurge this summer.  One that I planned for, but still a little ridiculous.  I do love it though!

6. Did you make any changes at the beginning of 2012?
So far the biggest change is that I've flossed every day.  It's quite the achievement.  I don't even have a dentist appointment coming up.

7. What's the last book you read and do you recommend it?
Um, let me check my Kindle.  I'm not so good at actually remembering the titles.  Actually I'm too lazy to check right now but as most of the books I've read recently were on the free download list, they are nothing to write home about.  I should probably get over my cheapness and read some good stuff one of these days.

8. Do you stay current on celebrity gossip?
As much as Twitter tells me, otherwise I check stuff out now and then but am not obsessed with it.

9. Do you know the words to Bohemian Rhapsody? Gangstas Paradise? Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?
Some of the first two, most of the last.  Also, Big Butts is a good one.  Just saying.

10. What is your favorite educational television show?
Does HGTV count?  No?  I actually find stuff on the History Channel, particularly about war pretty intriguing, but we have basic cable so I don't watch a lot of that.


  1. I'd count HGTV. Totally. ;) My friend actually had her house on there recently as part of "My First Place" in an episode shot in St. Louis area. They put the bid in the week after the guy on the show looked at it. Weird, right?

  2. Haha, what a random selection of questions. Flossing everyday is a habit I'd like to get into also.

  3. Most of the time I wish I had a British accent...

    Yay for history channel watchers!!
