Q and a Liebster

I am so over winter, OVER IT! It has been below freezing every morning this week and now Winter Storm Q is coming. Seriously, who names these storms and how do I get that job? They are predicting anywhere from 6" - 20" of snow to hit here overnight. You can bet your sweet ass that I will not be attempting to drive anywhere. My normal 45 minute commute will turn into 3 hours and honestly, I have no desire to risk my life with the other idiots out there. Where the hell is my early spring, Groundhog?

At least the cold weather gives me an excuse to wear cute hats.
 My angry coworker is at it again this morning. He's yelling at his credit card company about some fraudulent charges on his account and of course, as soon as he hangs up from them, he has to call someone else to talk about it. Ugh!

In other news, I've been nominated for another Liebster award! The very lovely Crissa at Craving Chocolate and Lazy Days nominated me a couple of weeks ago and I am finally getting around to answering her questions. I am such a procrastinator, it's not even funny.

11 things about Me:
1. I love hats, but always feel weird wearing them (see above picture) like I don't look as cute as I think I do.
2. Astrology is fascinating to me. Not in that I have to check my horoscope everyday way, but the personality profiles are strangely accurate. And don't come at me with the "new zodiac signs", those are all a lot of bunk. I am and always will be a Gemini.
3. I have always liked Math (except Trigonometry). It makes sense to me and I am usually pretty good at number puzzles.
4. If you rearrange my daughters' first initials they spell CHEEP or PECHE (peach in French). I was thinking about getting a little chick tattoo sometime.
5. I have one tattoo and really want to get another soon.
6. I do not like olives of any kind. I keep trying them in an attempt to like them, but I don't think it is ever going to happen.
7. I am really bad with money. I wish my parents had better explained how to manage my money instead of me muddling along for years.
8. I am the worst housekeeper ever. I despise cleaning and really just want someone to hire me a maid.
9. I used to be fluent in French, but lost quite a bit of it after many years of not using it. I would like to get that back.
10. My dream job would to be an actress, but I don't know that I have any talent.
11. More often than not, someone's offhand comment will remind me of a movie quote.

Crissa's Questions
1. What is one talent you wish you had? - I wish I could whistle. For some reason, I have never been able to figure it out.
2. If you had to watch one Disney movie everyday for the rest of your life what would you pick? - This is a tough one because I love Disney movies! I do have a soft spot for Brother Bear and Meet the Robinsons, though. They both make me cry every time.
3. What is your most embarrassing moment? - I have lots of embarrassing moments but I usually laugh them off and go about my business. I can't think of any one time when I was completely mortified.
4. What is your favorite holiday? - Thanksgiving I love getting together with family and eating good food and you don't have to worry about spending  money on gifts or candy. I'm looking at you, Easter.
5. Is there a place in your home you would like to redo? - Um, the whole house? Our master bathroom really needs to be redone since the shower still hasn't been replaced since Jason ripped it out and I would really like to have that shower back.
6. Do you have a bad habit you wish you could break?  If so, what is it? - I wish I could be more proactive in getting things done and not procrastinate so much.
7. Smores or Pumpkin Pie? - Smores every time
8. What is your favorite workout tune? - Chelsea Dagger by The Fratellis
9. Who is your celebrity free pass? - Toss up between Bradley Cooper and Jeffrey Dean Morgan
10. What is your best childhood memory? I really have quite a lot of them as I did have a pretty good childhood. I always loved travelling, though and we had a great vacation to New Orleans and Pensacola when I was 10.
11. If you won the lottery what would you do with the money? I would make sure that all my debt was paid off and all the girls had accounts set up for college. I would also make sure that my family was set up and comfortable. I would then buy my dream house and travel.

That's about all I got today and it only took me 4 hours to get this post finished (see #6). I really should get these typed up the night before. I'm sure I'll have much better luck tomorrow as I'm working from home due to Q. All I think about when I hear Q is the character from Star Trek: The Next Generation. And that leads me to thinking of Wil Wheaton whom I still have a crush on. Hmm, maybe he should be my free pass?

Ah, Wesley Crusher

Anyone else preparing for Snowmageddon?
