Ten on Tuesday

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

I know it's not technically Tuesday, but I started this on the actual Tuesday (had to finish it later as I had a brief dinner/tv/movie break), and if I haven't slept yet it still counts as Tuesday.  Right?  Can I say Tuesday one more time?  Yes?  Tuesday.


So, I'm doing the Ten on Tuesday!  Brought to you by Roots & Rings, a lovely blog I discovered a few days ago.  I very highly recommend her.  Also, if you are doing it, be sure to head on over to her page and link up your blog!

1. Are you usually late, early, or right on time?
Late.  Very late.  I've been doing better recently with being only a bit late (I've been on time twice this week though!), but everyone can attest to my chronic lateness.  It's a bit of Filipino time, and it's just how my family works.  There's a story how my mom lied to us to get us to be on time for something...but I think I'll save that for a later date :)

2. What is your middle name?
Marie.  Yes, I have one of the most common names in the world.

3. What are the last 4 digits of your cell phone number?
Three numbers more than my dad's, two numbers more than my mom's, and one number less than my brother's.

4. How big is your bed?

It's a strange Euro-bed that's between a Twin and a Double/Full.  Good for me!

5. What are you allergic to?
We think certain leathers, but we're not positive.  My hands swell when I go shopping and when I go to the Auto Show.  Leather is the only thing we can think of that's present at both places, but still unique enough to those two scenarios.  Also, airplane pillows make me sneeze.

6. What is the first thing you do in the morning?

Turn on my radio and then go to the bathroom.

7. What was your favorite TV show growing up?
Friends and Jeopardy.  They were two of the few American programs we got when we lived in Europe.  I was a bit young for Friends since I was only 8 when it aired for us, but that's ok.  I've loved it from the moment I saw it.

8. Will you, or did you, go to your 10 year high school reunion?

I would like to! It depends where I am, of course.  Physically.  I'm pretty sure I'll go to a reunion no matter my life/relationship/career status, as I'll be curious where we all are.  Yes, I keep up with most of my friends through Facebook, but my class was 789ish people...that's much more than I care to Facebook.

9. If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it, does it still make a sound?
Yes.  I'm pretty sure humanity has proven that existence does not depend on witness.

10. What, in your opinion, is the greatest invention? (You know, since sliced bread…)
I marvel every day at the invention of the computer.  Who in the hell thought up all the intricacies of this machine?!  I mean, honestly, if you saw a ton of wires and circuit boards, would you have thought, "Hmm...let's combine these into an EPIC ELECTRONIC DEVICE THAT WILL CHANGE MANKIND."  And the fact that it was so unlike anything else, but was still versatile enough to accommodate all the changes that came upon its future.  It's a wonder, really.

"Yes. I'm pretty sure humanity has proven that existence does not depend on witness." Loved it. :)

Also? I love penguins too.

Seriously... I'm not smart enough to even IMAGINE a computer. It's brilliant.

Thanks for participating!

@rootsandrings - you're very welcome, Ten on Tuesday is fun to do!

@Ashley - thanks :) and penguins are the best!

@TheBigShow - They don't make them here in the States; a problem we did not realize until we left Europe haha. Now, I just use Double/Full sheets and tuck under the mattress. And I use blankets rather than a comforter.

About Me

I'm fairly obsessed with penguins, Peanuts (the comic), and the TV show Friends. Parentheses may or may not be (over)used in this blog, and books will pretty much be the only thing I ever talk about because they are my One True Love.
