1. Sierra is the love of my life. I love her more than anyone or anything I could have ever imagined and have from the moment I saw her, my love for her grows stronger every day.

2. I was born two months premature.

3. I am an RN and am completely terrified of going to the Dr.

4. When I wear my scrubs in public and someone asks if I'm a nurse, I have had countless complete strangers pour their hearts out to me about their very personal, private medical conditions.

5. I have long blond hair and green eyes.

6. I am so intolerant of cold weather, I love hot weather!

7. Winter is my least favorite season, but Christmas is my very favorite holiday!

8. It drives me completely insane to hear someone chomp their gum or eat with their mouth open or in a sloppy, slurpy manner.

9. It takes me a long time to establish a friendship and truly trust someone, but once I have a friend, I will be their friend forever, nomatter what, and would do anything at all for that person.

10. I have had LASIK. I used to be legally blind in my right eye, with incredibly awful vision in my left and used to not be able to see the big X on the chart at all. Now, my vision is 20/15! That's right, better than perfect!

11. Sierra is sleeping here on her computer chair and allowing me to share. This means, I am balanced on about an inch and a half of chair.

12. In person, I am very shy.

13. Last week, I locked myself out of my house and had to call my realty agency to come let me in.

14. I have been a vegetarian for about 14 years.

15. I wish I was better at corresponding by postal mail, I always mean to, but that doesn't get it done.

17. Pictures of Sierra are up all over the house, but only one is framed.

18. Sierra's voice and loving purr are the most beautiful sounds I know.

19. I just bought a new car, not because I wanted to, but because mine passed away. I'm really happy with this car, and don't believe I've ever driven such a nice one!

20. I have established some of the most wonderful friendships and met some of the most incredible people here at TCS and am thankful every day for the opportunity to be here!

8. It drives me completely insane to hear someone chomp their gum or eat with their mouth open or in a sloppy, slurpy manner.
OMG that is soooooo annoying!!! I had to take a test a few weeks ago and the girl at the next computer was chewing her gum with her mouth open making that chewy noise. I was about ready to grab it and stuff it up her nose. The smacking noise people make when eating hard candy or running a lollipop around on their teeth drives me up the wall too.

You've all done great!! Anymore???
post #53 of 68
I started this once and lost it - so if it appears somewhere else you know why

1. I'm 39 and 10 months - nearly 40!!!

2. I've been married nearly 20 years to my lovely hubby .

3. Hubby is 16 years older than me and I love that - I couldn't imagine being married to a man my own age - he might want me to be his second mum

4. We have two lovely children. My daughter is very nearly 18, my stepson is 25. He teaches at my daughter's school - so at school she has to call him Sir She's really happy about that

5. I love my job and couldn't imagine doing another one - I turned down a job paying twice as much to stay at the University.

6. We have three kitties now, all girls and all rescue cats (Tippy, Felicity and Adelaide) and three chickens - one rooster (Jacques) and two hens (Lottie and Hettie).

7. I LOVE to travel. I've been as far west as Hawaii and Greece in the East and many places in between!

8. I love football (soccer) and Formula 1 motor racing - I have been known to get up at 3 am to watch the motor racing live

9. I speak Italian quite well (enough to get by), I understand most of what I read and hear but find it harder to put the words together for myself!. I also speak a little bit of French and Spanish.

10. I went to University full-time as a mature student. I had a home, hubby and two children aged 3 and 10 to look after, as well as a full-time degree course - but wouldn't have changed it for the world. It was the best thing I ever did.

11. I love Indian and Italian food.

12. I like cooking, but need to prepare for it . So I need plenty of time, a good recipe then I can do a mean meal. Hubby's great though, he can collect together all kinds of odds and ends and make a fantastic meal without thinking about it

13. I love photography and would like to spend more time figuring out how to do the things with my digital that I used to do with my manual SLR.

14. I love reading - and enjoy student vacation time at work as that way I get to do some reading for pleasure instead of just reading student essays!

15. I am a shy person - but really love people. Part of my role as a tutor is being a counsellor - distressed students tend to gravitate to me - but I don't mind and do what I can for them.

16. I really do not like rude or inconsiderate people - especially when the behave as if the universe should revolve around them.

17. I can do housework, and when I do it, it's done well. But I don't like it and I could think of a thousand more enjoyable things to do

18. I drive a Renault Scenic, which is a great car because it's tall and I'm short!!! I'm only 5ft tall. It's also automatic - so no gear changes for me Yay!!

19. I enjoy a good laugh - two of my favourite films are Steve Martin movies - "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" and "Roxanne".

20. If I won the lottery we've decided we'd buy a house far out in the country and open a shelter for abandoned cats. Poor kitties. . I'd make it a nice big place so I could invite my TCS friends over!!!
