Since I’ve been a bit on a project hiatus with my foot issue, I thought I’d play along on the We Want to Know Wednesday. If you haven’t seen this link party, it’s co-hosted by the super cool gals at Confessions from an Impulsive Addict, The Johnson Journey, Our Dandelion Wishes, and Seriously Shawn.
1.} What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex? Are you an eyes or a smile person? Maybe another body part?
I’ve been married for 23 years. I honestly don’t “notice” other men, except if they’re on a tv/movie screen and have a great smile and I like their character.
My current man crushes are Mark Valley and David Boreanz.
Both have great smiles, nice eyes, dimples and drool-worthy arms.
Hey, I’m married – not blind!
2.} If a movie was being made about you who would you like to see cast to play you? And would your movie be a comedy, drama, romantic-comedy, action film or a horror movie?
I’d pick Mary McCormack for her sass and snarky attitude that she portrays on In Plain Sight. She mostly matches what’s going on in my head most of the time. I suspect that Melissa McCarthy is a better match to me in looks and personality, though. Her bubbly, fun, easy to laugh demeanor mostly matches my own.
I think an Action/Adventure, Rom-Com Drama Mystery would sum me up quite nicely.
3.} Does your senior yearbook include a senior comment section? If so share what you said about your future goals. Have you met those goals? If you do not have a yearbook just share an old picture and let us know what your goals where when you were 18 and if you have met them. If you're brave enough, include your senior picture!
This picture is a few months after graduation, and it’s even the blouse I wore in my senior pictures.
My goal section was all written in code, which I’m sure made perfect sense to me at the time, but I have no idea what it means today. I’m pretty sure I declared my love for my boyfriend who ended up being a pig farmer! It’s a perfect vocation for someone who turned out to be pure swine! I thank God frequently that He saved me from that fate. God is Good because I’m pretty sure my biggest goal at the time was to marry the Pig!
It didn’t take me long to get new goals. By the time the above picture was taken, I was committed to graduating from college.
Truth be told, I’m still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up!
I have a Bachelor’s degree in communications, with an emphasis in Human Resource Development. I’ve never actually worked in my “field” but I have been a customer service rep for an international import/export firm. I exported things like Callaway Golf Clubs and Coors Beer to Japan. I was a humor columnist, a disk jockey, a general assignment reporter, a sports reporter, an ad rep, a legal secretary, an accounting specialist, a GED teacher and community college instructor.
Currently, I am an engagement manager, which is not what it sounds like. I manage training “engagements.” I work virtually from the comfort of my own home. I’m mostly like an online administrative assistant.
Today being Administrative Assistant Day and all, I got this lovely bouquet from my boss:
as well as this box of delicious chocolates:
4.} What latest trend simply baffles you?
In home decor I do not understand the love of the gray. I cannot look at the color and keep myself from simultaneously picturing cinderblock and prison walls. It’s one of the most soul-sucking colors in the world to me, right after Renter’s Beige.
Sorry if you <3 Gray. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest. Gray was just too much a part of my life. I haven’t lived in the state for more than 20 years and I’ve yet to recover. Of course, it doesn’t help that I live in NE Ohio, which also has far too much gray for my tastes.
In fashion, I’m seriously confused by the headband trend.
Really? Who convinces these poor girls that this is a good look for them? Every time I see it, I believe that some stylist is secretly getting her revenge.
5.} When you walk into a room how do you present yourself? Do you walk in with confidence and command the attention of others or do you slink in and do your best to go unnoticed?
My current method of entering a room involves a knee wheelchair, so I roll into a room with confidence and panache.
It’s hard to slink on wheels. But if I’m late to an event, which is not out of the realm of possibility, slinking may ensue.
