A few facts.. about ME..

*I'm tired.. I haven't done anything interesting to write about so.. here's a few tidbits about your blog author:

1. The soda machine in the teacher's lounge does not have Dr. Pepper in it (the one in the elementary where I worked for the past two years did have DP's.) The MS teacher's lounge has two buttons for: coke, Pepsi, 1 for sprite, and 1 button for Diet Coke.

So, when I bought a soda.. I would hit the button H1 (for coke) instead of the G1 (coke too) because on the little digital screen it looked like the word: HI was spelled out.

2. I have recently been watching DVD's of the old TV show MASH. It's been fun watching them with the perspective of someone who has or is living in Korea. It feels like I'm one of the cool kids with inside information.

3. I do not in any shape or form like diet soft-drinks.

4. I think penne pasta tastes 'just a little better' than the other pasta forms. When I lived in Italy- I'd have them put the sauce that I wanted on penne instead of whatever choice the dish was served with.. like spaghetti.

5. I do like to squeeze the last drop out of the toothpaste tube. It's almost like a contest between me and the toothpaste tube.. can I get enough toothpaste out to brush my teeth one more time? *I recently bought this thing that goes on the end of the toothpaste tube.. and you push it downward along the tube as you use it- and it helps you get the last drop out even more than just pressing on the tube with your hand. It's pretty neat.

There ya go.. a few facts. Now, share something a bit on the off-beat that you do/believe/etc.

I would probably choose the same Coke button for the same reason. My husband teases me about stuff like that. Glad to know I am not the only one! Thanks for the giggle of self-recognition!

Well, who wouldn't select the soda that says: "HI" to you? It's so friendly and all. :D

I love MASH, watch it every time I can hold the tv remote hostage from the little sisters. My favourite episode (because it makes me cry) is the one where Hawkeye and the gang get the news that the previous CO got blown up over the Japanese sea. Brings a tear to my eye every time.

Something wacky about me? I can't resist making the stupidest jokes. :) Today my friend was telling me that her son gave her a video on how to do accupressure. My other friend said "On yourself?" and the first friend said "well, you can do it on yourself, on someone else..." and I had to say "on unsuspecting strangers", after which we all laughed ourselves silly for 30 minutes. I know, you had to be there... but you wanted something wacky! :)

Did you know you can then cut the toothpast tube open and get a couple more uses?
