I've Never Even BEEN to Mt. Vesuvius

July 8, 2010

The title of this post is absolutely pointless, except that it’s a line from one of my most favorite movies ever.


I have decided to be completely lazy in this post and open it up to you…all of you.  All of my regular readers, my friends and those who lurk but have never stopped by to say hi!

Just for fun, share the following:

  • Where are you from?
  • How old are you?
  • What’s your favorite movie?
  • If nutrition weren’t a factor, what food would you eat all of the time?
  • What’s your favorite book?
  • Do you blog?  If so, what’s your blog address?
  • Favorite workout?
  • Share 3 fun facts about yourself

Random? ? Yes.  Who cares?  I want to get to know you all!  I’ll go first:

  • I’m originally from NJ, but spent the last 10 years in Boston before moving to PA for less than a year.  I move back to Boston in less than 2 weeks
  • 29
  • Zoolander, Mean Girls, The Thomas Crowne Affair, Eurotrip (I don’t have the most sophisticated taste in movies!)
  • Cupcakes.  Anyone surprised?
  • A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Marjorie Morningstar, Gone With the Wind and Time Traveler’s Wife
  • I do!  You’re at it!
  • Right now I walk and do a lot of yoga.  And I’m loving Jillian Michael’s NMTZ.
  • I’m going to be a mom in about 3 months and I’m beyond excited and a little terrified; I went to law school and don’t really ever see myself being a lawyer; and I once threw a tailgate party in the parking lot of a DMB show complete with a baby pool full of water and toys, tons of food, jello shots and enough beer to share with about half the parking lot.

Your turn!  It’ll be fun getting to know you all a little bit more!
Have fun!

    Oops, I meant don’t knock it for the movie question.

    Let’s see, I’m from Northern California, I’m 28 years old, and I currently blog at OatsNBoats.com
    The movie book question actually overlap. I’m all about nostalgia and Anne of Green Gables is a favorite in both categories. I have to admit Parent Trap was my go to movie whenever I stayed home sick from school. I love reading and my favorite book rotates frequently – I think that’s why I love sticking to things from my childhood whenever favorite questions are asked.
    Favorite foods? I adore frozen yogurt and fresh bread and would eat them every single day. Unfortunately I’m discovering that gluten does not work for me so I’m in the process of learning how to make some good gluten-free breads, otherwise I steal bites of my regular bread (as I still make it for others) which really isn’t good for myself – but hey, the question was if nutrition wasn’t an issue right 😉
    I’ve been in love with rollerblading since I was 10 – it is still my favorite workout without a doubt. Recent discoveries include zumba and yoga, but if I had to pick one – I’d stick with rollerblading.
    Some random facts about myself? I had the chicken pox three times and mono twice (yeah, each of those you’re only supposed to get once and be immune to after that… my body apparently doesn’t like that family of viruses… they’re cousins).
    I adore animals and kids. I would ask to pet every dog and play with every child I came across if I didn’t think that would make me creepy – instead I think I error on the side of caution. But let it be known – if you ever travel out to Northern California and need a babysitter – I’ll volunteer.
    Third random fact? I randomly dance around in the copy room at work… super embarrasing when someone walks in, so I keep an ear out for the door. But hey, it makes it so much more fun. Also randomly dance to commercials if it’s just me and my husband… he thinks I’m a freak, but secretly he thinks it’s adorable – or at least that’s what I tell myself 😀
