I love these things.....

This was snagged from Weetzie's site - if you are not reading it, get on the ball, sistah. Oh jeez, I just heard a crash and loud meow from the kitchen. Perhaps I will investigate before I put my own answers.

A.)5 Things you May Not Know about my Time in School
1.)I was a great student but when I got to high school, I found people waaaay smarter than me and that messed with my confidence.
2.)I had a horrible boyfriend who cheated on me repeatedly and yet, I took him back several times.
3.)Despite mastering math with little effort, calculus kicked my ass.
4.)I will never ever ever go to a high school reunion. Some things are just in the past and that's it.
5.)I never got to go to a Prom with someone I actually liked.

B.) Five Things You May Not Know About the Job/s I Have (or Had)
1.)I waited tables for over 5 years and while there were times I liked it, overall it is the worst job I have ever dealt with.
2.)I met my husband at work.
3.)I am responsible for billing out 7.5 hours a day and frequently come up short.
4.)I have never done the wild thing at work.
5.)I would quit my job in a minute if we could afford it.

C.) Five Things You May Not Know About My Online Life:
1) I like being part of the cyber neighborhood.
2) I think it is cathartic to write stuff in my blog.
3) I started out reading Dooce's blog and am now so kinda over it because of the absolute idolatry. There are a lot out there who are better writers who do not get even half the traffic she does. I do still love her writing normally though.
4) I love to shop online, especially for BOOKS cuz they are so much fun to get in the mail!
5) I love reading other people's blog entries.

E.) Five Things You May Not Know About My Home Life:
1) I am anti-housework though I love a clean house.
2) I lovc to stay in bed on weekends and sometimes wish I could just stay there.
3) I talk to the TV at times, usually swearing at Bush or his ilk.
4) I will never allow my home to smell like animals despite the fact that two cats and one dog live here.
5) I love having a big kitchen even though I cook NEVER.

F.) Five Things You May Not Know that I Desperately Want:
1) A healthy baby.
2) To quit worrying about what is going on in other people's lives and focus on what is in front of me.
3) To be laid back and not always angst-filled.
4) To be able to pay our bills ON TIME and have a little left over for some fun.
5) To see the Steelers play at Heinz field and kick the living shit out of Dallas - live and in person, baby.

G.) Five Things I'm Absolutely Terrified Of:
1) Never having a child and never experiencing pregnancy.
2) Someone figuring out that I do not know what the fuck I am doing at work half the time.
3) Depression...going down in that black hole.
4) What will happen when my dad dies
5) Being caught in a small space for a long period of time.

SFG: thanks for the plug for my blog *blushing*. Loved reading your answers - keep us posted (huh, pun) on all your aspirations (ie: getting knocked up) =)

Good list. And I thought I was the only one to yell at GB when he was on the tv!!! And let me tell you, this world would be a much better place with fat-free peanut butter cups. :)

I have really enjoyed reading your blog. :)

5) To see the Steelers play at Heinz field and kick the living shit out of Dallas - live and in person, baby.

OMG!!! We ARE the same person! I'm a Bears fan myself *puts paper sack on my head* but I'm an honorary Steelers fan. Given the recent turn of events with the Bears, it is likely that I will root for the Steelers a bit more this year! I hate Dallas!

I've been to N.O. many times, always to see a football game...We'll have to go for a drink next time I'm there!
