Sunday Funday & Giveaway Reminder

Sunday, March 28, 2010

*** re-re-reminder! enter my giveaway before it's too late! studies show that 9 out of 10 people that don't enter today will be sad, sad, sad! experts have said that people entering my giveaway [and thus, making me smile] will grant me extra points on my Latin exam tomorrow! hurry! while you still can!***

So, this week I thought, i need a break from my exams. I study hard, so why not? MannLand5 always hosts a weekly getting to know you (welcome to new people, btw! grab a cup of coffee, let's get to know each other!), and it's another great quick and to the point blogging idea!

1. Why did you start blogging?
Originally, just because I like writing;
Then, to talk about my to-become-a-doctor-process
Then, that got interrupted by my
Now grad school adventure to Budapest

2. Who's the one blog friend that you would want to meet most in "real life"?
There are too many of you to answer this at one!
Sam @ Life is Beautiful & New England Girl
- because they know what it means to have NE pride!
Joyce @ This Side of the Pond & Selma @ Crazy Little World of Mine
- because they know the ins & outs of life outside the US!
Katie @ Goodbye Animosity & Teresa @ TeresaBug
-because I think I just get how they think; good conversations to be had!
Can't you just see how good I am at decisions?

3. Why are you always concerned with losing that "extra 10 pounds" when chances are your husband/boyfriend/friends tell you that you look fine just the way you are?
For me it's not the weight;
For me it's not the size jeans I wear today, last year, or next month;
It's the lifestyle associated with those numbers that matters;
When I'm not active, I get depressed;
When I'm not active, there's something wrong.
Fencing is my sanity, my escape;
See? It's not the 10 lbs, it's so much more.

4. What's the one thing you wish guys could understand about you?
I don't interrupt people because I'm rude,
I interrupt because I have the memory of a goldfish,
and if i don't tell you rightthisverysecond i'll forget it.

5. Tattoos?
Nope, sorry.

6. What was the best year of your life and why?
First year of college;
First year of North Carolina;
Great friends, great fencing, great times.
Though, to quote Mr. J. Mayer
"I like to think the best part of me
is still hiding up my sleeve."

7. Name three things you would do if you were a man for one day.
pee. standing. up.
have hours long discussions about sports
(which i do now, but no one would look at me funny
over how passionate and involved i get)
talk about cars
(see reason above re: sports)

8.What's your alcoholic drink of choice that usually raises a few eyebrows?
i'm not that much of a drinker;
but when out for cocktails with friends
i can sip some amaretto sours,
but the one that raises eyebrows?
jack & coke.
it's a strong drink for a not-so-often drinker
but when made right, it can taste so good
with a nice steak dinner!
