GTKY Sunday

Getting to know YOU

1. If you could have one of Superman's, powers which one would you want? Superhuman strength..Flight..Superhuman speed..X-Ray vision..etc
I would love to be able to teleport. Have you ever seen Jumper? It would be SO amazing to be able to be in... oh say... DUBAI... with the snap of a finger, a twitch of the nose, the concentration of the mind... whatever. I would take a vacation to somewhere new every weekend. But more importantly, I wouldn't ever have to deal with traffic again. AMEN.

2. The best thing I ever won is....?
I never win anything. Seriously. I probably enter 10 giveaway's a week and I've never won a thing. HMPH! :) The only thing I have ever won was a rinky dink trophy at Class Night my senior year in HS. I won a "Best Supporting Actress" award for my role in a small dinner theater production put on by my Drama class. In all honesty, it actually meant a lot to me because I had no idea that people were even judging that thing. They had the local members of the downtown theater come and vote. I didn't even go to Class Night because I wasn't expecting any awards and was pleasantly surprised when I went to school the next day and my trophy was sitting on my desk!   

3. Have you ever skyped with a bloggy friend?
No. Isn't it pretty much the same as using a web cam but with a fancier name?

4. What is your favorite Summer month?
June - mainly because it is my birth month.

5. Pool, Lake, or Ocean?
I prefer a pool by the ocean. I love getting sun, but I hate swimming in the ocean. I'm not too fond of critters skimming by my toesies. And, I am deathly afraid of jellyfish. If the pool isn't located next to the ocean, it gets way too hot for me and I spend the entire day in the pool shriveling up like a slug. I am lucky enough to live at the beach and get to take advantage of them both.

6. One of my favorite Summer memories is.....?
It was bike week and one of my friend's had family in town. I blew off work :) and went to the beach with them. We spent like a gazillion hours on the beach next to a beach bar with live music. There was also a hotel nearby, in which we took advantage of their lazy river. It was so much fun listening to music while floating in a lazy river while drinking a strawberry daiquiri. Ahhh... and that night, we headed down to the main area where the biker's event was going on. It was like nothing I had ever seen before... even though they have bike week every year, I had never gone to an actual event. The men were crazy, and the women were crazier. I saw half naked 60 year old women with body paint covering up their hoohah's. It ended up being so much fun! When I went home, I just remember thinking that this was such a FUN day!

7. What's your favorite secret bargain?
Hmmm... I love a good bargain. There is a store here called Old Time Pottery and they have the best stuff for dirt cheap. They pretty much sell everything too... it is a complete mishmash. They sell throw pillows for like $3 and their Christmas decoration selection is amazing!

8. Do you plan on or have you been watching the World Cup?
I watched a little bit of it yesterday because a friend was over and wanted to watch it. I would never watch it on my own nor do I plan on watching any more of it. I am just not a soccer futbol fan and therefore have no idea what is even going on! Plus, we had a discussion about those horns blowing constantly during the game yesterday... that is enough to drive me mad! BUT...  GO USA!
