Ten on Tuesday

I had an idea for a Travel Tuesday post today, but I had been considering waiting until next week because I'll have more time to devote to a good post. Then, I saw that Lisa was in charge of the Ten on Tuesday questions today and I took that as a sign, I have to answer them :)

Sorry if you read my earlier post (like 20 minutes ago), I was having Ecto problems, as usual!

1. If you work, do you drive to work or take public transportation?
I drive. If I took public transportation, it would be VERY out of the way and take over an hour. Driving takes 7 minutes. So yeah, I drive. Plus I need my car to get to tutoring.

2. How often do you get your haircut? Do you go to the same person every time?

3 or 4 times a year, sometimes less if I'm feeling cheap :) I love my hair dresser though. She's nice but she leaves me alone. I don't love to the chat with my hair dresser. Wow, no hugging and no chatting- I am pretty anti social!

3. Do you read the newspaper? If so, a hardcopy or the online version?

Honestly I'm so out of the loop on the news unless I'm on vacation or home sick from work! When I used to live with my parents, I did read their newspaper, but I prefer local news to be honest.

4. What is the best book you have read this year?

I am really into the Lisa Gardner books, starting with Alone. I've read a lot of awesome books this year though. I'm on a reading kick right now.

5. What is the best movie you have seen this year?

Definitely Toy Story 3. Yes I do get movie recommendations from 5 year olds!

6. Do you tend to crave sweet or salty foods?

My mom is a sweet person and my dad is a salty person. I managed to get both. It's a wonder I'm not 500 pounds! I think I'm overall more of a sweet person but I just happen to love chips. Cake with a side of Pringles?

7. Do you eat breakfast every day? If so, what do you have?

Yes. I truly do not understand people who don't eat breakfast. I need food and I need it immediately. I usually eat oatmeal, bagels or quick pancakes on the weekend.

8. If you celebrate Easter, what Easter treat/candy are you most looking forward to?

Chocolate bunnies and Starburst jelly beans. However I'm going to try to avoid both as much as possible this year. Jelly beans are addicting for me- I had to throw some away today because I couldn't stop eating them and my stomach was not impressed!

9. How late is “sleeping in” to you?

7:00. I can't change my sleeping up that much on the weekends and I'm definitely an early bird at heart!

10. Where are you going on your next vacation?

Not sure exactly yet (unlike us, I know). We want to go somewhere for a weekend for our anniversary. We will also be going to Chicago in October to watch Caroline run the marathon!

Pick one of the questions and answer it in the comments :)


  1. Argh... I just left a comment and then it didn't save it! Doh!

    I have not read any Lisa Gardner books! I will have to check her out. I am reading Paris Wife right now (surprise, surprise, a book set in Paris... but I did not pick this one, actually! My local book club did!).

    That is exciting that you are goign to Chicago marathon weekend to watch Caroline! That will be so much fun! I will make sure my trip to Boston doesn't fall on that weekend!!

  2. I get my hair cut like twice a year, and they always yell at me for not going enough. It's expensive! And I haaate being talked to during pretty much any service. I like my quiet, zone out time. The worst is when a massage therapist tries to talk to you!

  3. I only get my hair cut a couple of times a year . . . basically when I'm in Vancouver, Toronto, or Victoria.

    It's a sad state of affairs atop my head right now but if you saw where I live you would understand why I can't trust the stylists here. Me thinks though that I may have it cut in Portland at the end of the month.

    Now you know something random about me! :oP

  4. Haha for #6 I think of Joey on Friends "put your hands together." I LOVE eating M&M's or smarties with salty nuts or popcorn. BEST flavour combo!

    You guys should definitely do something for your anniversary - hey, I know. You should celebrate 1.5 months late by going to Minneapolis. Huh? Huh?

  5. Lists/questions are fun.

    Breakfast: YES! I could never survive without it. Although I do wait til I get to work to eat it, so it's up to 2 hours after I wake up.

  6. Nothing wrong at all with the Toy Story 3 Recommendation; I almost wrote that down for mine too :)

    Also, I'm with you... I don't know what's up news wise unless I'm home sick or see it in passing in our break room. I'm terrible that way!

  7. I agree, I have BOTH sweet and salty "teeth", UGH!! Thanks to both of my parents, just like you.

    I also agree that I couldn't imagine not having breakfast. How do people do it?! Strange. Lately I've been doing some eggs for breakfast every once in a while. It's a nice change from the oats.

    Regarding haircuts, I recently switched to a new girl, but she talks my ear off. I want to just sit and read my gossip magazines. So annoying!

  8. I'm the same way with my hair stylist! I just sit there and let her do her magic. We make small talk at the beginning but generally, I listen in on other convo's, ha.
