Old BTWs

~Spring Break~

By the way...
Do you have any fond memories of spring breaks gone by?
The first one that comes to mind is Spring '05- my friend Danielle and I flew to Orlando, FL for the week. In '04 I went on a mission trip to Juarez, Mexico, which was also amazing, just in a different way.



By the way...
What is your birthstone? Amethyst
Do you like the color, does your birthstone mean anything to you? I don't really care for purple-- so no, but I don't hate it either
Do you have any jewelry or special items that contain your birthstone? Yes, I have earrings that were given to me by a wonderful friend a few years back. I wear them constantly!
If you know anything else about your birthstone's physical attributes or where its found, fill us in. Nada


~It's Almost Thanksgiving~

By the way...

Are you a traditionalist with the turkey, dressing, and all the trimmings? Yes- haha even though Thanksgiving was 5 months ago...
What is your favorite kind of pie? Apple
Will there be a green bean casserole on your table? Yep, and I usually make it
Share a little bit about your family Thanksgiving celebrations. We usually have a big family dinner. In the morning we watch the parade, and after the dinner everyone just sits around talking and laughing


~Left, Right~

By the way...
From where you are now sitting,
if you turn your head to the LEFT, what do you see? books, movies, paper, a heater, laundry, water, drinks...basically all my crap
What would you like to see? a clean floor

From where you are now sitting,
if you turn your head to the RIGHT, what do you see? the wall
What would you like to see? eh, the wall is fine


~Cell Phone Mania~

By the way.....
Are you an avid user/constant talker or never-turn-it-on/emergencies-only user? It's on, but doesn't work out here in the country anyway. I definitely don't talk constantly on it!
When did you buy your very first cell phone and why did you buy it? August '05 was the first one I actually bought, because I was traveling a lot and needed it for interviews. I had two before that though- one in Austria (Fall '04) and for my first nanny job (summer '05)
Describe your ringtone. Depends who's calling. I have 3: "Friends" by MWS for most of my friends, "Bad Day" by Daniel Powter for my friend Mon, and "The Office" theme song for everyone else
Do you consider your cell phone a necessity? Hmm...I would have a hard time getting rid of it now...
