5 jobs i've had:
one. A Clean Impression. thanks to amanda's love for dry cleaning, my mom swindled me into taking this sweat shop job.
two. "runner" Xscape Day Spa. gotta love the homosexual spa manager who constantly sent me over to "The Store" to buy him razors with the money from the till. don't worry, i'd slip myself some gummy bears in every once in a while.
three. nanny. best. job. ever. i nannied for the most beautiful, sweet, fun, lovable, smart, little girls ever. and their mother is someone i long to be like and miss chatting with almost every day. can you tell i miss that amazing job? come back nielson's......
four. fruit stand manager. second favorite job. (maybe it had something to do with the fact that the nielson's, the above mentioned family, created the job for me) i got to "lay out", eat fruit, and read all. summer. long.
five. nanny. wost. job. ever. worked for an evil devil worshiper in park city who owns a very popular restaurant up there that i won't mention for fear of ever having to speak of them. lets just say they still owe me $400, and I am NOT willing to go get it.

5 things i hate doing:
one. moving!!!!!
two. waking up
three. cleaning the toilet (which by-the-way, i think should fall into the list of "manly duties" men are inclined to do, like, taking out the garbage and fixing broken things. I mean, aren't they the ones dirtying it anyway? i've been trying to implement this in my house...trying, is the key word. just a thought)
four. listening to the foreign guy at work eat his peanut butter and jelly sandwich (which by the way he calls a P&J...not pB&j) every morning for breakfast (with his mouth opened) and then proceed to slurp his hot chocolate and BURP to follow it up. yup, hate that.
five. vacuuming. i absolutely loathe the sound of the vacuum.

5 biggest joys of the moment:
one. being in the same room as my miles
two. blogging
three. my dishwasher, washer and dryer, second bathroom, and cable (i know, your sick of hearing about it)
four. having time to read
five. bed time

10 things about me..

1. when laying on my back in bed, the covers can NOT be touching my neck. I have to have them up around my face or else I feel like I am being strangled.

2. i hate crumpled up napkins. i will avoid touching one at any cost. why must people crumple them up? i prefer to fold my paper napkin instead of wad it up, you never know what might be lurking in the next crevasse. i know i am crazy...i just hate it.

3. ok...i am going to say it for the whole world to hear....i like to eat cooked carrots with ketchup. there. i said it. please don't judge me.

4. i love to play card games, board games, any type of game. unless people get too competitive, than it isn't fun anymore.

5. i have an extremely hard time wearing v-neck shirts and i've have had this problem since i can remember. i find them to be absolutely hideous on my body and it has turned into somewhat of a phobia. i have begun wearing scoop neck and other variations, but the v-neck, i just can not do.

6. i never knew how much pure love i could have for a dishwasher and washer/dryer. you try going without either for 4 years. not fun.

7. my 2006 self would kill me for saying this, but..i miss school.

8. life without the porcupine is just not as complete.

9. i make 'monsters' or german pancakes every sunday.

10. i absolutely love: charleston chews, maggie moo's ice cream, sugar daddy's, doughnuts, anything gummy, and bubble gum. yum.

{oh, and i have tasted the most disgusting hamburger on the planet, please reference the picture above}
