Ten On Tuesday: No More Coffee

January 11, 2011

I decided to jump back into Ten on Tuesday this week. These questions are hosted by Chelsea and written by Molly.

1. Is there a band/artist that you HATE?
I can’t stand listening to screamies in general. I have a special hate for Linkin Park because of some bad memories with an ex-boyfriend, and Nickelback or any band that sounds like them fills me with anger.

2. What do you do when you get a gift that you do not like? How do you react?
Pretend I like it and try to think of a particular thing about it that makes it a good gift and tell them so. It was most likely a sacrifice for that person to give it to me, and I want them to feel appreciated. I rarely return gifts.

3. How is your work office/cubicle decorated?
It’s a communal space and we all just kind of grab whatever computer station is available. So basically, I don’t get to decorate it. Examples of what I look at on the wall behind me at work: Board of Nursing contact info, intravesical chemotherapy powerpoint, intercom list, and what to do in case of bomb threat. Inspired yet?

4. Do you use all of your vacation every year?
I absolutely do; vacation is one of my favorite things. Right now I’m saving mine up for maternity leave which is practical but not very fun at the moment.

5. Did you have a real or fake Christmas tree?
We cut down a real one from a Christmas tree farm, and although I enjoyed that experience I admit that I really want a fake, pre-lighted tree. I just couldn’t stand all the needles everywhere.

6. If you could have anything for dinner tonight, what would it be?
It’s really hard for me to think about what to eat when I’m not particularly hungry, like now. But as of this moment I think I’d choose a cheesy, tomatoey pasta.

7. Do you bite your fingernails?
No, but I keep them very short. I couldn’t stand the unevenness of bitten nails.

8. How many cups of coffee do you drink each day?
I used to enjoy 2 cups every morning, but it started wreaking havoc on my stomach so I cut back to a once a week indulgence. Sadly, the last time I drank coffee (and a very weak cup at that) I was extremely jittery for hours and had terrible indigestion. So for now, coffee is out.

9. Do you have a nervous tick?
I was just talking about this with my family last night! One of my brothers bites his nails and the other one plays with his hair. The only quirk my parents could come up with for me is that I stick my tongue out when I’m concentrating. I don’t think that really counts as a nervous tick though.

10.  How often do you vacuum?
Most of our house is wood floors and I rarely vacuum it, but I sweep it several times a week due to dog hair. The bedrooms get vacuumed probably every few weeks. Not often enough, probably.

    From Kyla Roma:

    “Screamies” is the sweetest way of describing that kind of music ever! You’re priceless :)

    From uncle david:

    Your Dad used to, and probably still does, stick his tongue out in moments of concentration. Could be a genetic tic but not a nervous one.

    From Nora:

    I love that your Uncle comments on your blog. I think I’ve told you that before.

    I apparently stick out my tongue when I’m concentrating, something that Knight brought to my attention. I had no idea. Otherwise, I don’t think I have any nervous ticks really, though I do tend to play with my necklace (if I’m wearing one) when Im nervous!
