Ten on Tuesday (62)

These questions are from my friend, Molly. You can go visit her by clicking here.

1. Is there a band/artist that you HATE? 
I hate hate hate Shania Twain and Coldplay. I dislike Dave Matthews Band, Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith, and all bands that scream so loud that you can’t understand the words.

2. What do you do when you get a gift that you do not like? How do you react?
I like most gifts I receive. And if I don’t like the gift, I still appreciate the gesture, so I can still be thankful for that.

3. How is your work office/cubicle decorated?
It isn’t. Work is not my happy place so I don’t spend much energy making it nice. I have a few pictures on my bookshelf and credenza. I can’t hang anything on my walls because they are decorative glass. I suppose I could tape things up but then it would be weird for my office neighbors.

4. Do you use all of your vacation every year?
Ha. Do we really want to get into this subject? I get 5 days per year… so, yeah. I use it all.

5. Did you have a real or fake Christmas tree?
Fake. And it’s still up. Don’t judge me. We’ll take it down this week. It’s huge and takes a while to take down. We had a full, fun weekend and sort of just ignored it.

6. If you could have anything for dinner tonight, what would it be?
I’m sort of in the mood for a grilled cheese sandwich and homemade tomato soup. We can’t have that though. I have defrosted chicken in the fridge. Plus, my husband doesn’t think we’ve had a meal unless meat is involved.

7. Do you bite your fingernails?
Absolutely not.

8. How many cups of coffee do you drink each day?
Anywhere between zero and four. It depends on how tired I am, if the office pot is full, and how my stomach feels.

9. Do you have a nervous tick?
No, unless you consider putting on Chapstick. I do it mindlessly and often do it to fill dead time.

10.  How often do you vacuum?
Our living room gets vacuumed about 2-4 times per week because we have a giant black rug that collects dog hair. The rest of our house? Not often enough. We have a Roomba but sometimes he gets lost.

Your turn. Link up!

    1. Is there a band/artist that you HATE?
    Sarah Evans, Jennifer Nettles (I dislike women who sing through their noses. There’s twang and there’s fake. Thank you.) Chelsea, how can you not like How Do You Like Me Now? by Toby? Don’t answer that.

    2. What do you do when you get a gift that you do not like? How do you react?
    I’m always appreciative that someone would buy me a gift and I think my reaction reflects that.

    I3. How is your work office/cubicle decorated?
    I work at home, homeschooling, sewing, cooking, cleaning.
    I’m constantly changing it up.

    4. Do you use all of your vacation every year?
    Umm, yeah.

    5. Did you have a real or fake Christmas tree?
    Real this year because the fake one is falling apart.

    6. If you could have anything for dinner tonight, what would it be?
    Steak and Lobster. Seriously.

    7. Do you bite your fingernails?
    No way.

    8. How many cups of coffee do you drink each day?
    One or none.

    9. Do you have a nervous tick?
    I do something that I got from my daddy that annoys my mom and my husband. I wiggle my legs all the time. I put the ball of my foot on the floor and shake my right leg up and down. Or else I move them both back and forth. And if I cross my legs? Forget about it. Up and down. Up and down. I try not to do it in public. Especially if my mama is around cause she’ll poke me HARD.

    10. How often do you vacuum?
    Not nearly enough.

    I reread this and #2 is my beauty pageant answer. Isn’t that what it sounds like?

  • 3. Sue @ SimonsSistaSaw  |  January 11, 2011 at 7:41 am

    5 days? I guess we don’t really want to get into that but as a fulltimer, that would be illegal in the EU (and Australia). Crazy

  • 4. Angela  |  January 11, 2011 at 7:48 am

    5 days? That’s not right. I can see why you don’t want to get into that!

  • 5. jen  |  January 11, 2011 at 7:51 am

    dont fret! our christmas tree is still up too…perhaps this weekend we will take it down…

  • 6. timlinzrowland  |  January 11, 2011 at 8:39 am

    I must admit I am with your husband and must have a meat with dinner! Soup and sandwiches can be for lunch but not dinner. Oh and I must have 3 sides to go with the meat. It really messes with me if I don’t!

  • 7. Nora  |  January 11, 2011 at 9:17 am

    I had to laugh that the Roomba gets lost. that would probably happen in my house too! I vacuum once a week at least; I don’t like hair and dust/dirt.

    I never bite my nails; I honestly can’t think of a time when I did. If I get a small tear/rip in a nail, then I’ll yank it off, but that’s only cause I hate getting it snagged on things.

  • 8. Stacie  |  January 11, 2011 at 9:17 am

    This is the conversation Corey and I have had EVERY night for a week: “Ok, we’ll take the tree down tomorrow…” HA!

  • 9. Kathleen  |  January 11, 2011 at 9:24 am

    I plan to answer these questions later, but I just had to say that when I clicked on the link to Molly’s blog my work blocked it and categorized it as pornography. Ha!

  • 10. Lisa of Lisa's Yarns  |  January 11, 2011 at 9:25 am

    Wow, 5 days? You poor thing…..

    I had a hard time coming up with artists I hate… I don’t like loud/screaming bands either… I like mellow music.

  • 11. Taryn  |  January 11, 2011 at 9:36 am

    1. i’m really not into jazz or anything like that. No josh groban or amy winehouse or michale bolton.

    2. i just try to smile and say thanks and figure out in my mind if i can return it!

    3. i have tons of pictures, posters and medical stuff up on my walls. my office is very eclectic….

    4. yeah, i get two weeks and it all gets used!

    5. Fake. I just took it down on sunday.

    6. take-out chinese food. Rob isn’t home and he hates chinese, so it’s the perfect time for me to get it!

    7. not now, while i’m preggo. as soon as i have the baby, i’ll gnaw them all off! lol

    8. i’ve been limiting myself to one.

    9. not that i know of.

    10. i only have to vacuum upstairs, so maybe 1-2x per week. I have to mop the entire downstairs at least once a week.

  • 12. Mama Fuss  |  January 11, 2011 at 9:42 am

    Yeah, my dad only give 5 days (40 hours max) vacation per year and even then, he averages out your previous 6 weeks worth of hours and pays you that if it’s less than 40 hours. It blows.

    But my office job gave nice vacation benefits, and you could earn an extra day here or there by doing extra things, too. But if you didn’t use it in the calendar year, you had to cash it out in December for 50% of the value, no carry over. And they required that you take at least 5 days off, every year, even if they weren’t consecutive.

  • 13. Autumn @ One Boy and Two Cats  |  January 11, 2011 at 10:06 am

    I have the funniest image in my mind of your Roomba just driving aimlessly around the house… and getting lost. Love it!

  • 15. Debbie  |  January 11, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    oh LORD! all I got from that post was FIVE DAYS! that’s all the vacation you get?!?! that should be illegal! 😦

  • 16. Angela  |  January 11, 2011 at 3:47 pm

    Hah, I am shocked by your hate for Shania Twain (love her), same with Kenny, his music is so sweet and mellow. Toby is just awesome. I’m going to go cry now! 😛

  • 17. Misfit Mommy  |  January 11, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    I won’t judge you for the Christmas tree, if you don’t judge me for the Christmas lights still up on our house!

    Joined in this week, hope you don’t mind!

  • 19. E  |  January 12, 2011 at 12:45 am

    I love that you still have a tree up. It’s still winter. Plus I love looking at the lights.

  • 20. Laurie S.  |  January 12, 2011 at 7:28 am

    Maybe I should invest in a roomba… But do they only work on wood floors?

  • 21. mediumcrazy  |  January 12, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    I just have to say that I’m so so sorry you only get 5 days off per year. That is so WRONG. wrong wrong wrong.

  • 22. maureen aka emmie  |  January 12, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    1. Is there a band/artist that you HATE?
    anyone who does rap, cannot stand rap music.

    2. What do you do when you get a gift that you do not like? How do you react?
    I thank whoever gave it to me. If someone is thoughtful enough to even give me any gift, I feel very blessed, and honored to receive it.

    3. How is your work office/cubicle decorated?
    I work in a preschool classroom, it is decorated with art by 3 year olds, and other things that 3 year olds enjoy.

    4. Do you use all of your vacation every year?
    I get the summers off if I choose, so yes.

    5. Did you have a real or fake Christmas tree?
    fake, and I love it.

    What I am making, tacos

    7. Do you bite your fingernails?
    no

    usually I have hot tea, but if I drink coffee, I have one.

    9. Do you have a nervous tick?
    no

    10. How often do you vacuum?
    I have a roomba too, and it is FABULOUS. And to Laurie S., it does go on carpets unless they are black.
