48 Things You Could Care Less About
1. FIRST NAME? Nelltje
2. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? Nell for my mom's friend. -tje added due to my grandma. -tje (pronounced tya) means little one in Dutch. Like -ito or -ita in Spanish. My grandma called me that and when she passed away, I had it legally changed.
3. WHEN DID YOU LAST CRY? I'm a total sap. Probably when the Tigers won the penant!
4. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? It depends. When I'm in a hurry it isn't so pretty but if I take my time, it's OK.
5. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCHMEAT? I know it's gross but bologna. I think it's because I wasn't allowed to have it as a kid. Now, every once in a while, I buy the turkey kind.
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? I think so. I'm pretty fun. Although, I have this crafting addiction my friends have to deal with.
7. DO YOU HAVE A JOURNAL? This is as close as it gets.
8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Yup- and my appendix. In fact, I've never had surgery.
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? Yes. But I'd cry my eyes out before I jumped.
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Fiber One Honey Clusters (aka colonblow) Pretty delicious for a healthy cereal.
11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Nope- I'm a kick off kind of girl.
12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? I'll arm wrestle you. Right now. Let's go. I'm ready! I'm ready right now!
13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR? Graeter's mint chocolate chunk. The best thing about Ohio. (j/k) And I love coffee and black cherry.
14. SHOE SIZE? 11 and pretty narrow. Total ski's. I was a size 10 in 4th grade. Thank goodness I grew into my feet!
5. RED OR PINK? I'm a redhead. So neither. Although, I'm all over the pink sock yarn.
16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? My big round belly. I used to be hot. Seriously!
17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? My mom. Hands down. No competition. I wish I would have asked her so many questions and shared more experiences with her. I'm not religious. But I gotta believe she's watching. Otherwise, the loss is overwhelming.
18. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO SEND THIS BACK TO YOU? Just tell me you did it. Then I can feel my blog stalking.
19. WHAT COLOR PANTS, SHIRT AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? White wifebeater, blue sweats, no shoes. But I went to work in khaki's and a brown sweater with brown maryjanes. I'm pretty dull when it comes to dressing.
