I Wasn't Tagged BUT

I liked these questions on the following blogs and thought it would be fun not only to share but have each of you answer them on my comments for this post.

The first set of questions were designed by Aleta. If you haven't visted her blog YET now's the time. She writes a personal diary and its fun to be included in on her life.

With my posted answers:

Are you a Cat or Dog person? Love both animals but would say CAT person. Have three.

Do you have any nicknames? At my night job they tease me and call me soft talk or mumbles which is VERY ODD for me as I perceive myself as loud and talkative. You'd have to know this bunch though -- louder than me. Sometimes they call me curly.

What was the first job that you ever had? Babysitting

What is the most exotic food you’ve tried? Squid, sushi, clams, but I don't think they are exotic.

What is one item in the kitchen that best describes your personality? blunt/butter knife - I am really blunt...have you READ my blog but also quite soft and spreadable with the right people.

If you could start any company you want, what would it be? See here for this answer. (which I am trying to run now.)

If you went back in time and greeted your “younger self” – what advice would you give knowing what you know now? OH boy I could write an entire blog post on this one Aleta! :-) Be yourself, don't take things so personally.

The second set I found on Diana Banana's blog. The post before this one was probably the best post title ever. Go read it and you'll see what I mean.

I'll play!!

I'm a horse person, but I also have two dogs and a cat.

No real nicknames. Just Tiff or Tiffers.

My first job was mowing my grandma's yard.

Most exotic food? Sushi, squid, eel, rattlesnake & alligator.

Kitchen Item that describes me: Blender - I have a real mix of interests and passions.

Company? I'm not sure. I would do something involving trouble teens and horses.

If I could go back in time and give myself advice? Yeah...this could be a post in itself. Short answer: I'd tell myself to focus on my passions and to go do things(travel, internships, ect) while I'm still young enough.

Tiffany, Thanks! That was really fun to learn about you. Blender. THAT'S a GREAT answer!

Curly! I love the blunt butter knife reference! It's all good. :) BTW what is a mothershutterupper? I needs one. Oh wait, right now I'm still okay cuz she's continuing to give me the silent treatment! HA! :P

Kathy said...

Are you a Cat or Dog person? Cat, most definitely! But I do think of getting a dog someday. It'll be a beagle.

Do you have any nicknames? Nope. Not a one. Only Kathy, Kat, or Dude (but my co-worker calls everybody that!)

What was the first job that you ever had? Babysitting.

What is the most exotic food you’ve tried? Tripe. Grossest thing I ever had. I think the word exotic is misleading. The word makes it sound like it'll taste good!

What is one item in the kitchen that best describes your personality? Hand mixer. I'm mixed up all the time, I make a mess of everything, and everyone wants to lick me.

If you could start any company you want, what would it be? Hmmm, good question. Probably some kind of research outfit. I love to research and dig deep for information. I don't know. Can that even be a company?

If you went back in time and greeted your “younger self” – what advice would you give knowing what you know now? Seize the day! Fear not! Don't waste this time! Go straight to a career in writing and don't wait until you're 40 to figure it all out!
