Ten On Tuesday: Randomness

June 14, 2011

As usual, thanks to Chelsea for hosting! Is it just me, or are the weeks getting longer and longer? I can’t believe it’s only Tuesday.

1. How do you pronounce the word aunt? Does your pronunciation rhyme with ‘haunt’ or ‘can’t’?
Rhymes with ‘can’t,’ because I’m from Texas.

2. Do most of the people in your life know you blog? Or are you partially or totally anonymous?
Yes, mostly. I don’t hide my blog from anyone but I don’t announce it either, so the people I work with probably don’t know about it. I’m completely unanonymous, and just try to use discretion regarding what I post.

3. When you grocery shop, do you prefer to bag your own groceries or do you like it when the store bags them for you? Paper, plastic, or reusable bags?
I let them do it because I’m lazy. Thankfully  my husband does most of the grocery shopping because I hate that chore. We used reusable bags for a long time until recently when we left them at the used bookstore on accident. So I need to get some more of those.

4. Do you have a green thumb?
I doubt it. I’ve never really tried to garden or grow anything. It’s something I’d love to learn more about when I have the time.

5. If you watch the Food Network, which chef/show host is your favorite?
I don’t watch it. I’m not a foodie and I don’t really enjoy cooking, although maybe if I watched the Food Network it would inspire me.

6. Do you like to take baths? Do you take them very often?
I am not a bath person at all. Especially not for cleansing. I just don’t see how a person can get truly clean from a bath. Since becoming pregnant, however, I have come to see the benefits of baths for relaxation purposes. Nowadays I will take a 10-15 minute Epsom salt soak at night every once in awhile, and it’s nice. I can’t handle much longer than that though.

7. What color are the walls in your kitchen?
What little walls there are (the kitchen is mostly dominated by white cabinets and a pink/tan backsplash) are a light green color.

8. Do you prefer to dine outdoors or indoors?
In good weather I enjoy dining outdoors, but that kind of weather doesn’t happen too often around here.

9. Describe your ideal weather.
It would be sunny but not too hot, maybe in the 70’s, with a slight breeze.

10. If you could learn any foreign language, which would you choose to learn?
I know a little bit of Spanish and I wish I was fluent in it. I could get so much use out of that, especially at work.
