2009!

Wow! Happy New Year's folks!! can you believe it is already mid-January? I'm sorry I've been so absent. The Italian, Christmas and work have kept me hoppin'! This year is shaping up to be another busy one but I am trying to be more organized and get back to regular blogging.

So in case y'all have forgotten me - or on the off chance anyone new is stopping by, I decided to do another "get to know me" quiz. ha Here we go:

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
Actually I am. My paternal grandmother was Stacy, though I didn't get her middle name of Ann, which she went by. Doesn't it seem weird that someone born in 1900 was named Stacy? I wonder where it came from - seems odd surrounded by the Inge, Bertie Lee, Pearl, etc. names of her 10 siblings.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
OH gosh, maybe a better question is when was the last time you DIDN'T cry. I'm a crier, though I will admit its been a good week or so. Unless you count getting "teary". ha

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
Hmmm - I used to think it was fine but lately it just looks messy. sigh

4. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
Nope, just a cat.

5. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Absolutely!

6. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
Me? Nooooo *scoffs* HA

7. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS
You know what - I can't remember! I think no, but will have to check with my mom.

8. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
Hell no!

9. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
Kashi Heart to Heart Oatmeal Flakes with Blueberry Clusters. OH SO GOOD. and as an added plus the milk turns blue. YAY

10. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
no, i usually pull my feet out. i know thats bad...

11. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
yes, i guess so physically. emotionally - absolutely, though you may not think it because I cry.

12. FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
Absolute 100% favorite of all time? Baskin Robbins Chocolate Peanut Butter. But I like most ice cream/gelato. It's all good in my book.

13.WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Usually their smiles and the look in their eyes. You can tell when someone is being insincere by their eyes.

14. RED OR PINK?
Red. Though I do like pink now and then. but not Barbie pink. yuk

15. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?

It's a tie between real Italian and Mexican. but I also really like Mediterranean and good ole American.

28. SCARY MOVIES OR SAPPY ENDINGS?S
Totally love sappy endings. hey I don't care if they aren't realistic. I live in the real world I don't want to watch it all the time! I don't mind suspensive movies but bloody, gorey kind of movies I can do without.
