Ten on Tuesday

As always, these questions come from Chelsea's blog! If you'd like to participate, you can find the list of questions here.

1. What do you order at Starbucks?
Usually, I order a grande non-fat vanilla latte. In the fall, I change that to a pumpkin spice latte. During the Christmas season, I change that to a gingerbread latte or if I really want a treat, a peppermint mocha.

2. Where is your favorite place to eat breakfast?
Spoon River

3. Are you on Twitter? Why or why not?
I'm not. I feel like it would be a huge distraction at work and that I would get nothing done. And I feel like I wouldn't have any followers. Or anything to tweet about.

4. What is your favorite Christmas movie?
Miracle on 34th Street or Christmas Vacation

5. Are you a good gift giver?
I think I am decent. It depends on who I am shopping for, though.

6. Do you like your handwriting? Bonus points for posting a picture.
I hate my hand writing. It's pretty terrible.

7. Is your signature legible? Bonus points for posting a picture.
Not really. Because my last name is so freaking long (9 letters), I sort of just scribble it.

8. Have you ever been to New York during Christmas season?
I was in NYC shortly after Christmas in 2004. I was able to see all the Christmas decorations, so it was almost as good as being there during the Christmas season!

9. Are there any items that you are completely brand loyal?
I'm brand loyal to quite a few things. I'm really picky about brands of toothpaste, laundry detergent, and cleaning supplies. I'm not the type to just buy what's on sale...

10. Who is your favorite public speaker?
I have thought about this for awhile and I really don't have one!!

I love Christmas Vacation!! We usually watch it every Christmas Eve and it makes me laugh every time, no matter how many times I've watched it. I'm in the Christmas spirit right now, can't wait for it to get here!

I am with you on #9!

Becky said...

Dude - you should TOTALLY get Twitter. I thought it was stupid for a long time but as long as you approach it with a light-hearted attitude it's really fun!

Amber said...

I used to have such nice handwriting. Now that I never practice it anymore it's TERRIBLE.

Ditto to what Becky said - you would love Twitter. I know it!!! ;)

Also, I think it's funny you're brand loyal to cleaning supplies! Lol. I'm the most NON-brand loyal person you will ever meet EXCEPT for yogurt. For the most part it's whatever is the cheapest I get but I ONLY buy Liberte Greek Yogurt!

Nora said...

I have to say the salted caramel hot chocolate is my new favorite thing to get at Starbucks. Or a peppermint hot chocolate. Either way. Obviously I love my chocolate ;-)

(Side note: I don't think your handwriting is messy!)

(Double side note: You would totally have followers on twitter. And you'd have stuff to say. I promise you this.)

abbi said...

I'm not on Twitter either for the same reasons. I agree on your #9 too. I'm really cheap but there are certain things I can't go cheap or generic on!

Lauren @ Sassy Molassy said...

Oh, I LOVE Christmas Vacation. My brothers and I watch it every year together and laugh so hard at the same parts every time. That and Home Alone. Some of those things just don't get old. For me, twitter is a nice quick distraction when I need to get my mind off something stressful. I don't find myself using it more than maybe 10 min a day.

Nora-salted hot caramel chocolate at SB??? OH MY GOD. I must have one.

Emily Jane said...

Yummy lattes... ever tried the Starbucks hazelnut one? It's to die for!!

Also, I avoided Twitter for the longest time ever, followed by signing up and then doing sod all because I didn't quite understand how it worked/what the point was, lol. But you should definitely get on board :)

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

Haha my last name is much shorter and I still only write the first letter and then scribble. Even when I switched last names I lasted less than a week writing out the 5 letters haha. I do write my whole first name :)

The Many Thoughts of a Reader said...

I for one think you need a twitter account to help entertain me and I would definitely follow you ha.

Stephany said...

I think you should try out Twitter. You would DEFINITELY have followers. :)

My mom is super brand loyal and I think I'm turning that way, too. Ha!

Amy --- Just A Titch said...

For the record, I'd totally follow you on Twitter :)

Also, I really want to watch Miracle on 34th Street now :)

Erin said...

I have been trying twitter out myself---and for some reason, I can't get the hang of it! In fact, my dinner conversation this evening revolved around twitter--and I learned all this terminology like "hash tags" "tweet-ups" and what the @ symbol can do for ya!!! Let me know if you become a tw"expert"----I'm still quite the novice :)

Unknown said...

I use Twitter to filter news. Works well for me. It took me awhile at first to decide if I had a use for it.

Jolene - EverydayFoodie said...

I really want to go to NYC over Christmas - I think it would be so cool to see the big tree!

Shoshanah said...

I would follow you! Although I don't tweet as much as most people. I feel guilty about tweeting at working so I don't really do it. Instead most of my tweets have to do with whatever I'm watching on tv. Plus I get most of my news by just paying attention to twitter trending topics.
