Ten on Tuesday

In an effort to not be a horrible blogger, I’m participating in Chelsea’s Ten on Tuesday again.  Head over to Roots and Rings to see other people’s answers!

1. What are some of your family traditions?
We have lots!  For Thanksgiving, we usually go out to our friends house with a bunch of other families and have a huuuuge potluck Thanksgiving dinner.  On Christmas Eve, we go to church and when we come home the “kids” (even though we’re not kids anymore) get to open one present.  On Christmas morning, we can’t come downstairs until Mom tells us it’s OK and takes a picture of us sitting on the stairs (she still makes us do this).  Every year between Christmas and New Years we go bowling.  For Thanksgiving, we usually go out to our friends house with a bunch of other families and have a huuuuge potluck Thanksgiving dinner.

2. Do you know how to change a flat tire?
My dad has shown me before, but that’s why I have a AAA card.  :)

3. Do you subscribe to any magazines? What are your favorites?
Nope.  I prefer books.

4. What are your top three favorite office supply items? (If you don’t share the love of office supplies with me or if you are male, you may skip this question.)
Post-its, in any shape or color!
Pens, specifically Cello Silke pens from Walmart
Binder clips…they’re so useful!

5. Are you a good public speaker?
Considering it’s what I spend my whole day doing, I’m going to go with yes.

6. How do you feel about acronyms?
As part of TFA, I am required to love acronyms.  During Institute we even had a contest to see which group knew what all the acronyms stood for.  I use INM, GP, IP, LP, LTP, BG, PD, CIE, and TAL on a regular basis  :)

7. What’s the most creative things you’ve ever done? (Bloggers, feel free to include pictures!)
In sixth grade I created a Fan DustVac for the invention fair.  I took a big mixing bowl, cut a hole in the bottom and attached it to one of the vacuum cleaner attachments.  You would hold the attachment underneath a ceiling fan blade and use one of those pre-Swiffer magnetic dusters to wipe the dust off the fan blade and into the vacuum cleaner.  My mom loved it because you didn’t have to dust off and the fan and then vacuum the floor; you could do it all in one step.

8. I’d rather jam a pen in my eye than…
go sky diving

9. What company has the best advertising?
I like Dove’s real beauty campaign.  Even though I know it’s advertising, I’d still naively like to think it’s legit.

10. When is your birthday?
August 9…I have a long way to go, but happy birthday Chelsea!
