Unknown (maybe) Barbie Love/Hates

I.................

1. hate to abbreviate words. I can't do OJ, AC, PB and J, veggies, margies, or PJ's.

2. love to save money. I love a smart bargain, I love to haggle, and I love to get a deal. I will (without real need) research and investigate something until I know I have gotten the best price anyone could get. I love to return stuff too.

3. love driving stick shift, can't imagine why people don't.

4. never ever answer my phone (home or cell). You want me, text me or email me. And yes, this is how I roll.

5. loved the show 24. Michael and I watched the whole show on Netflix. I am convinced this show is where Obama got the idea to run for president.

6. love to use curse words. Yes, I have other more sophisticated adjectives to use but I enjoy cursing.....what can I say?

7. love pick up trucks. Texas is a haven for these. The bigger the better.

8. break out in song whenever apropos, and especially when not.

9. have to mention that my all time favorite class to participate in has been a course I took in West African Dance in Philadelphia. You cannot imagine how grrrreat this class was and how much fun.

10.am obsessed with spelling. I have a dictionary with me in the car, in my bedroom and in my home office. The catch is, I rarely use spell check. In fact, I don't remember the last time I did.



This is a super random list of my love/hates. I have many more (as we all do) but I tried to limit it to ten.

I would love to hear yours. Yes, yours.

Well, I love to abbreviate! LOL
Oops! See!

I almost never answer my home phone. I'm not really sure why we have one. I figure, if it's important enough they will call my cell!

I love 24 too and my hubby and I did the Netflix version too. We were like 24 Junkies! We would be up until 3 or 4 AM watching and then sleep but be back up at 7 or 8 to finish because of the way it hooks you at the end of every single episode!!!

not ONLY do you NOT answer your phone....
you reply to any and all calls or emails with a text...

thank the lord for unlimited texting, eh?

cursing is wonderful...
especially the F-bomb! did that abbreviation annoy you?

You would not survive in the banking world if you do not like acronyms! I swear, I had zillions of useless acronyms memorized for no good reason. Glad to be rid of them all!!

I too, adore manual transmissions. My silver beetle with the 1.8 Turbo engine is a stick and I love it! I hate it when I am in heavy traffic though...

And I completely forgot you gave me an award! I suck...I'm doing the post right now!

I'm right there with you on the phone thing, that is HUGE for me. If you want to talk to me, email me!! (I barely even have the patience for texting.)

And in this day and age, I'm still surprised at how many people get offended by me preferring to communicate via email versus the phone. ::shaking head::
