Joining up with this week's hodgepodge questions.
I don't watch any NFL games. In fact they usually annoy me because it screws up Sunday night tv on CBS. Amazing Race never tapes right so we end up taping lots of extras to make sure we get the whole show. College football is a different story. You can usually find a game on at some point on Saturday. We of course watch OU but I've been known to go shopping when that game is on simply because the stores have less people in them.
2. What's something I'll always find in your closet?
Jeans. My wardrobe staple. What you won't find is a lot of shoes, jewelry or clothes. I just don't own a lot of them. In fact my closet has lots of extra space to hang clothes if I ever bought them.
3. Share one of your earliest memories.
I remember failing year one of swimming lessons and having to repeat the beginner class the second year. I hated to put my face in the water which is sort of necessary to progress in swimming.
4. What circus act best describes your week so far?
5. What's a food you disliked as a child but you love now?
Sushi. Although we never had it as a kid I can guarantee you I would have disliked it. One thing that I disliked as a child and still can't stand...peas. Go read about my harrowing experience.
6. Describe your summer in three words.
Majestic Dogsled Alaska
7. Where were you on September 11, 2001? Will you do anything special to mark the day this year?
I was at work. I remember driving to work and hearing a short news blurb about a plane flying into the building. I had recently rewatched a documentary about a small plane that had flown into the Empire State Building in the 50's and I thought it was like that. Then the reports came out worse. We had a tv in our office that could barely get any reception (it was used more for videos) and I had Dan dig out rabbit ears to bring to me. I had the tv in my office on a stand for two straight days and let any student who wanted to sit in there and watch the news. It brought back a lot of memories from when the Murrah bombing happened here but it was also so different.
I'm not doing anything special to mark the day.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I pinned the cutest marshmallow/candy cane idea on Pinterest this week. If only I had a classroom of kids to make them for. If you want to make them, check out this website.
