I put on my big girl panties and dealt with it!

We continue marching on with July's challenge at Paula's Place.   Today's topic:  List seven random facts about yourself.  Link up here.

Hmmmm... let’s see.

1) I don't drink coffee.  I'm not a coffee drinker.  I appreciate the smell.  I think it smells delicious.  However, lets' face it -- it's bitter.  I don't like... "bitter".  I don't like bitter people, I don't like bitter weather, I don't like bitter beer.  Bitter = bad.  I do, however, like coffee-flavored-sugar-milk.  What's that you ask?  Well, that would be a coffee with about ten creamers and eleven sugars.  At that point -- and only at that point -- is it palatable.  

In fact, not too terribly long ago, I reallllly needed a quick jolt of caffeine and so I chose the Dunkin Donuts drive through.  This caused panic and anxiety.  I actually posted on Facebook pleading from my "grown up" friends to inquire how I'm supposed to even ask for a damn drink because since I don't drink coffee... I don't speak coffee either.  I but I gots me a coffee!

I did it, however.  I put on my big girl panties and dealt with it!  I got some iced coffee thing with Splenda.  It was okay... needed more Splenda.  

2)  I like animals more than most people.

3) I hate my toenails unpainted.  They must always be painted.  I can't however, stand to have them any weird color like green, black, orange... they must be red, maroon, coral or pink.  That's it. 

4) Along the same lines, I HATE HATE HATE having my fingernails painted... and I will never have fake nails.  I can't stand that crap.

5) I made my first best friend, Shannon, when I was five years old by spilling a snowcone all over her.  That was 35 years ago... we're still friends today!  :)  HI SHANNON!  (This photo is a couple years old... but the friendship behind it is still going strong!)

6)  I can type over 100 words a minute.  It's true.  Now, if I could just use this for a purpose while staying at home.... THAT would be awesome.  I could do like a typing marathon!  Iron Man Typing contest!  I could start a type-a-thon where we raise money for shelter animals!  I could start:  Typing For A Cause.  You know..where you type stuff...for a cause.  What would we type?  We would type letters.  We might even spell something!    

7)  I made homemade focaccia bread last night...and even had some... and it was YUM-O!  I love to bake.  I bought a new book on bread baking.  I'm going to try to make a new type of bread each week until I've perfected it.  I love baking from scratch but my kneading skills are quite rusty.  Plus, I need a good place to put bread to rise.  My house is quite drafty it seems.  What's a girl to do?

1. coffee flavored sugar milk...I don't even know how to respond to that. Maybe because I do drink coffee and can't imagine having that much sugar in it.
2. I love animals as much as people.
3, 4. Same here. I don't hate having my fingernails painted. I just don't care about them as much as my toes.
5. I met my oldest friend when I was 14.
6. I type pretty fast but not that fast. That's impressive.
7. I have The Bread Bakers Apprentice but haven't made any of the recipes yet.
