Getting to Know Me.

If you've read my old blog (... and you really should've, but if not, go now.  I'll wait.  Back?  Okay.), you know all about me.

But if you're new to this blog and to me, and you didn't go back like I suggested, you need a Nenette refresher!  And really, you need to know what you're getting yourself into by reading this blog.  Because it's awesome.  And not scary.  Really.

So, to that end,  I stole was inspired by an old post from my old blogging friend Heather over at Theta Mom® to help you get to know me, because, like my blog, I'm awesome!  Thanks, Heather!

Okay, here we go...

1. Name someone with the same birthday as you. Famke Janssen 

2. What has been your favorite age so far? 30...  It all started when Roomie threw me an awesome surprise birthday party.  Then, Roomie and I turned down a relocation by Nortel and subsequently got 2 severance packages that enabled us to take a year off, get married, and go on 2 honeymoons -- one to Cancun and the other to Drumheller.

3. Where did you meet your husband? in university.  it may have during calculus class, but neither of us are sure.  we may have both been drunk at the time.

4. How many children do you have? 2 and they are the most adorable children in the world.  truth.

5. Have you ever sung in front of a large number of people? yes, in church, when I was still a good Catholic girl and played the organ and sang in the choir.  my parents forced me to. it was a nightmare.

6. What’s the first thing you notice about your preferred sex? at first, I thought "preferred sex? like 'position'?"  then I was "oh" -- height.  I love tall men. 

7. What really turns you off?  selfishness.

8. What do you order at Starbucks? during fall/winter: americano with lots of room... during spring/summer: iced half-sweet shaken green tea.

9. What is your biggest mistake? not taking pharmacy in university (and now all my friends are like 'wha-?')

10. As a child, what did you want to grow up to be? I wanted to be a nurse, then grew up to realize that I hate the sight of blood. nurses apparently have to deal with that sort of thing. hm.

11. Say something totally random about yourself. my thumbs are different.  from each other.

12. Do you still watch kiddie movies or TV shows? definitely, Phineas & Ferb is one of my favourite shows.

13. Did you have braces? yes... from grade 9 to the beginning of grade 12.  with my big glasses and perm, I looked like your basic 80s nightmare.

14. Favorite Social Network?  Instagram... for now...  unless they do something to piss me off.  

15. Who was your first celebrity crush?  lots of people think it was Scott Baio.  nope, it was Donny Osmond.  Because he was a little bit rock 'n' roll.

16. When do you know it’s love?  when you can't imagine life without the other person. or the other person's rich. kidding.

17. Do you speak any other languages? my first language was Tagalog/Filipino.  

18. Have you ever been to a tanning salon? do I look like I need to tan?!

19. What kind of books do you read?  self-help, business, sci-fi, and erotic historical romance, those Edwardian dudes knew how to get it on!

20. What is playing on your phone playlist right now? Ed Sheeran's Shape of You

21. Have you ever ridden in a limo? yes, on the way back home from the airport upon our return from our Cancun honeymoon. it wasn't as awesome as I thought it would be.

22. Has anyone you were really close to passed away? yes, my paternal grandparents.  I was their first ever grandchild, and thy helped raised me when my parents and I still lived in the Philippines.  my grand dad and I were thick as thieves, and he approved of, when I, at the age of 2, beat up kids much older than me.

23. If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?  (nutritional value is equal)  Pavlova

24. What’s something that really annoys you? when my kids just drop stuff (text books, glue gun, nailpolish crap...) on the floor when they're done with it.  and then when I bring it to their attention, they say "I'll put it away in a bit, Ma" but then don't.  UGH.

25. Which television show were you sad to say goodbye to?  Friends... and Stargate Atlantis, SGU,...
