ooh... i got tagged by a new blogging friend!! this list of questions is the perfect diversion for my lunch break (who needs to finish the annual budget, anyway?!?)

Were you named after anyone? eleanor from a great-great-(maybe great) aunt on my father's side. anne is my mother's and my grandmother's name. lelly is a nickname my husband uses.

Do you still have your tonsils? yes.

Would you bungee jump? i don't think i'd ever be able to step off the little platform.

What is your favorite cereal? i love to mix cheerios and rice krispies, or cheerios and raisin bran. (this was a little trick we learned growing up to make cereal more *exciting.* no sugar cereals for us.) (how, then, did i develop a little love affair with lucky charms? i blame the Ithaca College dining hall...)

Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? nope

What is your favorite ice cream? mint chocolate chip

What is the first thing you notice about other people? i notice how they speak (or, if i'm blogging, how they "read.") i notice accents, phrasing, sentence structure, vocabulary. is that weird??

Least favorite thing about yourself? my body image

What is the last thing you ate? whole wheat toast. i'm currently waiting for my BLT. what is taking my co-worker so long?!?

What are you listening to right now? The Hotel Cafe Presents Winter Songs (thanks for the suggestion, kelly!)

What is the last movie you watched? Chocolate. what was that, like three weeks ago?

What did you dream about last night? my friend michelle was delivering her sweet baby boy, and i had numerous dreams about that. had i known that he was actually born at 11 pm, i might have slept more soundly. but i didn't find out until 5 this morning.

Summer or winter? winter!!

Do you have any special talents? i am quite musical, i enjoy acting, i craft & sew. i am especially good at trolling the blogosphere for inspiration.

Coke or Pepsi? caffeine free diet coke.

Word you would hate to describe you? shallow.

What TV shows are on your DVR? Top Chef, The Office, Wizards of Waverly Place, Good Eats

it's back to work for me! i tag carlo, natasha and ann. (girls, you are supposed to add one question of your own to the bottom of the list.)

you're the first person I've ever heard of that notices the way people speak first. Interesting.

patsy said...

I really learned a lot about you from this one!

How do you speak?-
Did you like Chocolat? It's on my queque

Kelly said...

I never would have pegged you for a Caffeine Free Diet Coke. You have way too much spunk for such a chaste drink!

Jaime said...

That's funny about the mixing cereal thing. My grandma totally taught us to do that.

Cristin said...

I loved reading your list...

Ginette said...

Thanks for particpating and sharing a bit about yourself! Oh and I LOVE the Halloween costumes. Thing 1 and Thing 2...awesome!

Marie said...

So fun! I too never untie my shoelaces. The shoes I have that don't slip on and off well don't get worn very often.

The first thing you noticed was the way I 'read'? Oh dear. I hope my poor spelling and grammer didn't turn you off. Or make you think I was an idiot.

Amy said...

I never untie my shoelaces when I take them off & I never even re-tie them when I put them on. Pathetic, I'm sure.

I love that you notice the nuances of how people "read" because I do, too.

And I'm also excited about Top Chef being back on! It's one of my favorites.

Jill said...

This is a fun tag!

Natasha said...

I'm with you on the cheerios and raison bran - we always did that growing up!

Natasha said...

I did it!

Chris said...

That is a cute tag! Learned some things. :-)
