Ten on Tuesday - Provided by ME!!!

This week's questions are hosted by Chelsea but provided by ME!  Yay.  I am so pregnant because I remember submitting questions to Chelsea but when I first read them, I didn't remember submitting these questions.  But then I re-read them and I remember now.  I'm such a dork!  But you know you love me anyway.  :)

1. What type of cell phone do you have and how would you rate it?
I have the original Droid.  I would rate it "pretty good".  It's a great phone for finding things on the web, checking Facebook, playing games, it's decent at email, it's great for navigation, etc.  BUT the biggest downfall of this phone is the actual phone functionality.  The phone part is touch screen and the end button during a call is right where my check is and so I endlessly hang up on people during our conversations.  It's frustrating to use as a phone but as a smart-mini computer type thing - It's great.

2. What has been your most serious injury?
I would have to say when I collapsed my lung.  Warning to all you peeps out there, don't hold in your sneezes.  Apparently you can pop a lung or an ear drum or blood vessels or whatever.  It was when I was in college and I sneeze all the time because I have allergies so I used to hold in my sneezes - you know to be girly and dainty and not sneeze like an elephant.  So, apparently I had some sort of weak spot on my lung and then one day I held in my sneeze and popped a hole in my lung.  I didn't know why my chest was hurting but I didn't want to go to the Dr. because I was prepping for finals and needed to finish my photography project.  About 24 hours later I finally went to the Dr. and ended up having to be hospitalized for a week with a chest tube.  Let me tell you, I DO NOT recommend this.  That was SO incredibly painful and I always feel really really bad when I hear someone has a collapsed lung.  So, I learned my lesson and now I sneeze like an elephant - loud and proud.  :)
3. What is one movie you hate and why?
Most people love this movie, but I really dislike the Princess Bride.  I can appreciate this movie now - in a way, but when I was little, it scared the bejeebies out of me.  I mean really. . . there are giant shoulder biting rats, quick sand, electric shock torture, etc.  How is a little girl supposed to sleep after that! 

4. How many email addresses do you have?
A bazillion.  Ok more like 6 - 8.  I know it's crazy talk, but I have lots of different 'projects' and I used to setup different email addresses for each one of them.  My couponing email address, my house buying email address, my I don't want to give you my email - email address, my friends and family email address, my work email address, and the list goes on.  I now realize this is kind of dumb and really hard to keep track of.  But regardless, I'm kinda stuck with them now and don't have the energy to switch people from one to another.  So, we'll just go with it for now.

5. What website do you waste the most time on?
Probably Facebook.  I follow several blogs and read those almost daily, but I have access to Facebook on my phone and through my IM service at work, so I'm connected to Facebook almost 24/7.  I am started to get tired of that though.

6. Which mexican restaurant makes the best salsa?
I love Chuys but mostly because of that yummy jalapeno ranch, and I love going to Lupe Tortilla's because of their yummy charro beans they serve with their chips, but my favorite salsa would be Papasitos because they serve it warm and its not too tomatoey or spicy.  Yes tomatoey is a word.

7. What is your dream car?
Corvette.  Hands down.  I've always loved the look of these cars and I think they are so cool.  I'm not sure I would ever buy one though.  I mean, I'd have to have money to burn because you can only fit like 1.5 people in that car.  Our friend Jeff wants to get one eventually, so I'll just live vicariously through him.  :)

8. If you could spend up to $100 with no strings or restrictions or guilt, what would you buy?
Hmm, well right now I need to buy maternity clothes, but that doesn't sound so fun.  I'd want to use the money to go on a really nice date with my hubby. 
9. What is your favorite board game?
I'm not sure.  We don't have alot of board games.  Monopoly is one of my least favorite because it takes like 10 years to play a game.  We have a game called sequence that's pretty fun so I'll go with that.
10. How often do you change your hairstyle?
Maybe once or twice a year.  I hardly ever get a haircut because I don't know where to go, and it's really expensive and I can never decide what I want to do with my hair.  When it's short I want it long an when it's long I want it short.  I am considering cutting it soon though. 

Sorry this got wordy.  I hope you're not bored. OH and by the way - this is my 100th post.  HOOTIE - HOO


  1. Ok, so I knew I loved you for a reason: I HATE Princess Bride, love Sequence and the salsa from Papasitos!! And eventually we might get that corvette...if I allow it ;0)

  2. "HOOTIE - HOO", Stefanie?! HILARIOUS.

  3. I also have the original Droid and agree with you on all points. Oh, I am terribly sorry to hear about your lung/chest tube experience. That's horrible! Have a great week!
