Burgers and More - I've been Tagged

It's been a while since I've done one of these but my blogger buddy, MCW, tagged me with 11 questions so here it goes.

#1. How do you eat your burger?
I love homemade hamburgers and the more ketchup,mustard and pickles the better. I always cut my burger in half too to make it easier to eat.
#2. What's your favorite characteristic about yourself?
The ability to make conversation with anyone from any walk of life.
It doesn't matter what race, gender, class or what part of the country/World you are from.
Or, if I've never met them before!

#3. What time period from the past would you like to live in?
I'm obsessed with the Old South so I'm going to say the Civil War Era.
Of course, only if I was the daughter of a plantation owner like Miss Scarlett!
Seriously, how fun would it have been to live in a plantation home and wear beautiful dresses?
#4. What actress would be cast to play you?
Lord, I don't know but I would like to say Ashley Judd.
Love her.
If only, I had her body.
#5. What was your first car?
Gosh, I wish I had a picture to show y'all.
It was a 1987 Grey/Silver Dodge Charger.
I received it for Christmas in 1991.
It had no air-conditioning and I wrecked it 6-months later when I pulled out in front of someone.
#6. What's one product I hope it never discontinued?
Tyler Candles.
I could not live without them. It's pretty ridiculous.
I actually found several Christmas scents on sale this weekend for 70% off and stocked up for next year.
If you haven't tried them, do so!
#7. What was high school like for you?
High school weren't my best years.
We moved my 10th grade year from Baton Rouge to Hot Springs, AR.
While I made new friends and was in the 'cool' crowd, I never really clicked with the Hot Springs crowd.
Maybe it was because I left behind my boyfriend in Louisiana?
All I could think about was getting back to Baton Rouge.
The minute I graduated I was on the road and ready for LSU where I spent the next 6-years of my life.
(4 1/2 in college and 1 1/2 years working after school at a local TV station)
Oh, and BTW, still friends with my first boyfriend seen above.
He's married with 2-kids and still in Baton Rouge.

#8. Do you believe in ghosts?
I could do an entire post on this but my simple answer is YES!

#9. What would your dream house look like?
In the mountains on a lake with a ginormous outdoor kitchen and living space.
Enough bedrooms and bathrooms for plenty of family and friends to visit.

#10. When did you have your first beer? Did you have more than one?
I've never been a beer drinker so I'm not real sure.
I was a wine cooler kind of gal back in the day.
Cheesy but true.
So, I'm going to say probably at some fraternity party.

#11. What is your least favorite word?
It is overused in the corporate world and I think people think it makes them look smarter.

I think I'm suppose to tag people but I say take the questions and go for it if you want!
Happy Day!

I love how you did this. Great job.

Me, too on Scarlett.

I had a dodge colt in 1987. It was blue.

I'm sure there is more for me to comment on, but my memory is now bad.

So true about ROBUST - seriously I think men in the coporate world use it just to hear themselves say it!! Civil War Era for me too ...

i STILL have my first car!!! yup a 1997 that's a charmer - what's cool about it is they stopped making it the year after mine - so it's golden!

and in my parents house as a child we REALLY did have "ghosts" - but i say spirits - the women died of cancer and the husband killed himself in the garage - you would hear them walking upstairs when everyone was downstairs - but they were totally friendly - i always believed they watched over me at night b/c i thought i had monsters under my bed - so they stood watch while i slept!

OH MY GOSH. Love the hair ;) I was a wine cooler kinda gal too. My first boss (at Domino's Pizza) would buy them for us at the liquor store next door. Real responsible...his name was Elvis.

Nikki said...
