Ten on Tuesday

Another set of questions from the lovely Chelsea of Roots and Rings!

1. What’s your favorite kind of donut?
Well, donuts have gluten in them, so I don't eat them. And I can't say I've ever been a huge fan of them in the first place!

2. Do you use the snooze button?
Rarely! I used to but I broke that habit!

3. Do you write in cursive, print, or a combination of the two?
Sort of a combination of the two - it's barely legible. I really do not like my handwriting.

4. Tell us a joke.
A carrot and a mushroom were dating. One day, the mushroom said, "I'm sorry, we need to break up, this just isn't working." The carrot asked why. The mushroom said, "Because you're not a fungi." Ha.

My dad spoke at a carrot convention once (yes, there is such a thing as a carrot convention). I told him he should tell this joke. He didn't. That was probably a good decision. Joke telling is not a strength of mine.

5. How many languages do you speak?
Sadly, only 1. I know enough French to get by and ask all of my questions/order in French, but that's about it. I'd love to be fluent in French some day!

6. Why did you start blogging?
I started my France blog so my family would know what I was up to when I was in France for 3 weeks in 2008. I enjoyed blogging so much, I started this one when I got back!

I'll be posting in on my France blog when I am in Paris next week so add it to your reader (if you care to read about what I am up to over there!).

7. Do you use bar soap or liquid body wash?
Bar soap.

8. Do you buy bottled water?
Only when I am traveling.

9. What did you think of the Super Bowl Half Time Show?
I thought it was actually pretty entertaining and I enjoyed it - well, the parts when Fergie wasn't singing. I can't stand her. I don't have a good reason for this. Just the sight of her annoys me.

10. How do you feel about Steve Carell leaving The Office?
I am ambivalent because I no longer watch this show!

That carrot joke was awesome and ridiculous. It made me laugh that you told your dad he could use it and he didn't.

Mamarazzi said...

i love me some Black Eyed Peas...Fergie was off her game BUT she knew all the words...unlike Christina and the national anthem. That was SAD!!

mary beth said...

I loved the joke, Lisa..

Mandy said...

You broke your snooze alarm habit!? How did you do this? Ah, nevermind, you could tell me but we both know I don't have enough discipline to follow through with it. =)

A carrot convention? Thats sort of awesome. Growing up one of my friend's dad annually went to a funeral directors convention. The coroner from The Wizard of Oz was always a featured guest.

I will definitely add your France blog to my reader!! I can't wait to see what you're up to over there and see how much fun you're having! :)

B and B said...

"You're not a fungi" LOL

Looking forward to the French blogging experience, once again!!!

Sarah said...

Kudos to you for breaking the snooze button habit!! I'm working on that myself: I only hit it twice this morning - yay! lol.

Leigh said...

I don't eat doughnuts that often, but I had timbits for the first time in a long time this weekend. So delicious but so many calories!

Amber (Girl with the red hair) said...

First? HAHAHAHAHA to that joke. Love it. Hahaha. Also the fact that your dad went to a carrot convention is VERY cool/interesting. Lol

I am adding your Paris blog to my reader now :)

And I had no idea Steve Carrell left The Office. I haven't watched that show in forever either, though.

Stephany said...

I had to read the joke aloud to get it. It took me two attempts. Yes, this is sad. (But, I laughed! ;))

I need to break my snooze alarm habit. I'm terrible about it!

crystal said...

Wow, kudos for not using a snooze button!! I set 3 alarms and snooze them all :(

I am completely with you on the Fergie thing, she really bothers me....and I'm not completely sure why. I was super happy though when Usher came out! Oh, and thought the light up people were pretty cool.

I don't really get the carrot joke......

Gracie (Complicated Day) said...

The Office completely jumped the shark. I'm with you on that one ;-)

Kelly (She Wears a Red Sox Cap) said...

That carrot joke is GREAT, love it.

I will definitely be reading your adventures next week- I am pretty excited for it actually.

Jeanie said...

You bet I'll check your French blog! I am counting down your days with you!

Jolene - EverydayFoodie said...

I am sad about Steve Carell - I love him :-)

Erin said...

I just have to say----it took me a good 6 minutes to "get" the carrot joke. When I finally did---I literally laughed out loud!!!!!! (And then I told it during 6th period to my students---who thought it was cheesy---yet laughed out loud!)

Lisa-Marie said...

I don't think I will ever break the snooze button habit!
