1. Can you drive a stick shift?
Heck yeah I can. When I was a Junior in high school my dad told me that the only way I was going to be able to drive to school was if I learned to drive Cole (yes, I name my cars...). Cole was a Honda Civic hatch back which also happened to be a stick shift. I tried to fight it KNOWING that Bessie was still in the driveway (Oldsmobile) and was very functional, but no, Pops said learn to drive Cole (and change the oil & tires on it-It was Pops' policy that I had to learn to do those things on any car I wanted to drive-because if you don't know how to provide basic maintenance on the vehicle it you shouldn't be driving it...) or I was riding the Bus-WHAT?!?! Ride the Cheese as a High School Junior? No Way... The day before the first day of school we went out and practiced-and on the first day of school I was
2. What are two foods you just can't eat?
Bananas-blech I hate bananas-I hate way the smell, the texture, the taste the gross peel that people tend to throw anywhere they please when they have finished eating the nasty thing...they turn brown and look gross and become mushy-ew, they are just awful. I can smell a banana if anyone in the office is eating one or has eaten and the silly peel is still in their trash can. I am practically gagging thinking about it. As for one other food I can't eat...steamed/boiled cabbage...blech...I had to eat that when I was younger and I remember going over to a friend's house after dinner, and while we were playing, I threw up...all over the place, multiple times, and the only thing I can think that caused it was the cabbage my mom served with dinner...and told me I would be sitting at the table until all of it was gone...there is nothing like cooked cabbage that is cold...ew...I think this is worse than the bananas-except no one brings cabbage to work for a mid morning snack.
3. Do you buy Girl Scout Cookies? What is your favorite kind?
We do order them. I am a fan of the lemon ones, myself. I love most anything that is lemon flavored. I do also love a tag-a-long and a shortbread cookie...mmmm shortbread....Hubs is a fan of the Samoas-so that makes for a lot of cookies to purchase, and one (or 3 ) happy Girl Scouts.
4. How do you pamper yourself?
Pedicure-I LOVE LOVE LOVE a pedicure. It is so relaxing to sit back in a massaging chair, put my feet in the warm foot jacuzzi and have someone rub my feet-and then when I leave my toes are presentable and I can wear my beloved flip flops again without feeling self conscious about the fact that people are judging my chipped polish or ashy heels...
5. What is your nickname and how did you get it?
I have a few. Boo Boo or Uubs-came from Hubs. ELOP cam from Melinda- Those would be all of my initials if I hyphenated my last name when I got married. Mary calls me Eeyore-Because my maiden name startes with Or...and the first letter of my first name is an E...E-or=Eeyore. Those are pretty much it as far as nick names go for me.
