Ten on Tuesday - April Edition

Haven't done Ten on Tuesday in awhile! Link up with Chelsea if you'd like to join the fun.

1. How do you feel about April Fool’s Day?
I love it. I always wish I could be clever enough to come up with a really good prank. One of my favorite April Fool's jokes was played by a local radio station back when I was in high school. They announced that Pearl Jam was having a free concert at the Burien Park & Ride (Burien is a city south of Seattle that has a reputation for being really trashy). Thousands of people showed up! When they realized they'd been duped, they got PISSED. So funny.

2. Do you like birds? I love them! I have kind of a "bird whisperer" talent. I can coax many birds into getting close enough for me to touch them. I do it with ducks all the time because they're my favorite (someday I'd like to have pet ducks). I was actually recently telling The Scientist that I want to befriend the crows that hang out in the trees outside our apartment. I'll keep you posted.

3. How often do you wear your hair in a ponytail?
I always keep my hair really short so hardly ever. BUT, since I'm growing it out for the wedding it's actually long enough right now so I've been sportin' the ponytail pretty frequently lately. Because I'm lazy.

4. Do you believe in love at first sight?
I believe there can be a spark of something - attraction, pheromones, whatever it may be. Not necessarily love. But I will say that when I first met The Scientist, I instantly felt something and knew there was something there that I had never known or experienced and now I'm marrying the guy...

 5. What is your favorite appetizer?
I love a good spinach artichoke dip. Or raw oysters! YUM.

6. What is your favorite brand of heels?
I have a variety of brands of heels. I love Nine West, Steve Madden, and definitely my new Michael Kors heels. I'm pretty cheap and not super picky about shoes. I get a lot of them at Target and TJ Maxx.

7. Are you a picky eater?
Nope. I like pretty much everything except mayonnaise (and even then I'll eat some stuff with mayonnaise in it. I also hate rye bread, but only caraway rye. I like pumpernickel rye. 

8. Is there a tv show you like that nobody ever talks about?
I absolutely loved The IT Crowd when it was on. And since we don't own a TV, we get creative with our TV watching. We've found a lot of really obscure internet-only series and old stuff on Netflix Instant.

9. Do you prefer hot tea or cold tea?
Uh, both? I'm a tea addict. I drink gallons of iced tea in the summer (strong black tea with lemon, no sugar) and I drink hot tea in the mornings more often than hot coffee. I have a stockpile of tea. I get most of it here. Every time I go to Pike Place Market I re-stock.

10. Gayle or Peeta? (If you don’t know how to answer, read The Hunger Games.)
Meh. I didn't really feel anything strongly toward either of them. Am I the only one who thinks these books were poorly written and lacked some serious character development?


  1. I wholeheartedly agree with your answer to # 10! I thought I was the only one. But don't think me too anti-pop culture because I thoroughly enjoyed the twilight series --guilty as charged.

  2. I'm concerned about your affinity for birds ;) and have never given that much thought to rye bread. The only I ever didn't like to eat were endives and now they're okay if prepared right!


Talk to me, Goose.
