Once Cosas (That's Spanish, y'all. Read it as such - "Own-Say Co-Sahs" )

I must admit that in relation to the rest of the blogging world, I'm kind of a bad blogger. I never post giveaways for my imaginary blog readers, I only legitimately follow 2 blogs even though I consistently creep at least 3-4 others, and I pretty much never promote that I even have a blog. (It's not that I care whether people read it, I just can't help but feel like promoting my blog is a promise that what I say will be worth their while when I don't know that it is.)

That being said, I don't know many bloggers. At least, bloggers who I discuss blogging with bloggers. But in an attempt to promote blogger interconnectedness, I'm going to partake in this exercise that my dear real-life friend and blogger friend, Ashley, asked me to do.

It's a series of 11 things (or once cosas - Boom! Get it? You know Spanish now.*)

11 Random Things About Me:

1. I was voted "Most Polite" in high school alongside my oldest guy friend.
2. I don't think I could ever speak a language other than English or Spanish without feeling like I was sounding pretentious and people were judging me.
3. I keep my movies in alphabetical order and have them cataloged for tracking purposes.
4. I don't go a day without singing and movie quoting. If I do, it means something is really wrong.
5. I tell people that my favorite food is lasagna or carne guisada, but it actually might be pickles.
6. I have "tells" for when I'm upset or something is bothering me, but I didn't know them until college when a friend took it upon himself to point them out.
7. I've never had so much as a sip of alcohol and have never tried drugs, but I sometimes wonder what "Drunk and/or Druggie Tabitha" would be like. (Pretty sure she's like Low blood sugar Tabitha - that girl's cray)
8.The other night I had a dream that I bought a bunch of oranges and one of them was moldy. Since then, I've been questioning whether there's symbolism in that.
9. I'm pretty sure grapefruit is the devil.
10. I'm an almost high sensation seeker. From an assessment I once took where I fell right at the HSS line, it pretty much means I like thrills, risk, and being scared, but I don't drink like a fish or have random sex with strangers. 
11. I'm a sucker for conspiracy theories. I love them. And I still say they killed Marilyn. 

Ashley's 11 Questions:

1. What kitchen appliance could you not live without?
I'm not at all surprised that this is one of Ashley's first questions. And I hate to burst her bubble, but I've done without a lot of appliances for a long time, so I'm pretty sure I have a good chance for survival. But I have recently become quite attached to my Crock-Pot. There are certain recipes I will only make in that.

2. What is your favorite TV series of all time?
I love a lot of television shows. I go through spurts of addiction with shows like Psych, Supernatural, Sex and the City, HIMYM, Designing Women, and tons of others (we won't even get into cartoons!), but one constant is "The Golden Girls." I've seen every episode. I know pretty much every punchline and can quote a lot of the episodes verbatim.

3. What three wishes would you use if you had a magic genie?
I'm not above giving the "I wish for more wishes" thing a try. Not because I'm greedy, but because loopholes interest me. And I guess I would ask for some kind of monetary favor. I'd like to be able to financially take care of people I care about. And some kind of answer to world problems. I guess that's technically three.

4. What is the best part of a sunny day?
Getting a chance to spend it outside with someone you care about. Either swinging at the park, feeding ducks (especially feeding ducks!), or playing frisbee. Oh, and if the sunny day comes with a nice breeze?? Bonus!!

5. What is your favorite condiment?
I'm a ketchup girl. I'm not a fan of ranch. I only recently learned to slightly be okay with mustard, and mayonnaise is right for some foods, but throw me some Whataburger ketchup and I'm a happy lady.

6. What decade do you feel like you really should have been born in?
I don't know. I've managed pretty well in this time. I do love the dress and manners of certain days gone by, but then I remember that I'm Hispanic. That uh, wouldn't have gone over so well for me in some places...

7. What is your biggest vice or guilty pleasure?
It's probably staying up late and sleeping in. I'm terrible about that. I indulge in sleep when given the opportunity.

8. What do you love most about your current job?
Some days the kids I work with drive me nuts, but when they come up to me wanting to share about something going on in their lives, it makes my heart happy. They like to tell me about awards they get, how they do at their athletic meets and tournaments, when they do well on a test, about their weekend plans or activities with friends or family, and even when they've exhibited good judgement by not acting out in a negative manner (trust me, that's a biggie for some of them!). I like that they want to share with me. I also like when they get excited that I'm the one running a certain program (even if I sometimes feel it's a lesser of two evils excitement).

9. Given the opportunity, would you travel to space for a weekend vacation?
Heck yes! In a heart beat! I'd love to see the earth looking like a giant blueberry and go looking for that man on the moon.

10. What is your favorite dessert?
I gotta go with cheesecake. And not even like, rich, decadent, super expensive cheesecake, either. I mean, go to H-E-B and buy me the plain or strawberry cheesecake for $7 and I am a happy person. Very close second is apple pie, though. That's when I want a hot dessert.

11. If you could buy any single item in the world, regardless of price, what would you buy?
Maybe a smart house. I'd like to give living like the Jetsons a go!

This is where I'm supposed to tag people...

My 11 Questions Even Though I'm Not Tagging Anyone (Bad Blogger, Remember?) Maybe you could answer a few in the comments if you feel so inclined?

1. What's one thing the world could do without?
2. Water park or amusement park?
3. Do you have a favorite product that's been taken off the market and sent to wait for you in Heaven? What was it?
4. Do you have a personal mantra or motto?
5. What's the nicest thing someone has ever said to you?
6. Favorite childhood memory?
7. Do you have any secret talents or hobbies that you don't normally advertise?
8. Cooking or baking? Do you have a preference, or are all your ingredients at the restaurant?
9. Do you believe in regret?
10. What's your favorite holiday and why?
11. Have you ever had something you consider to be a defining moment?

*You don't really know Spanish now. You just know two words. Please don't list that you are bilingual on a resume based on this knowledge alone.

P.S. I feel like I've just filled out a myspace survey. Remember those?? Yeah, those were the days!! lol
