RETIRED State of TN employee. Crafter, blogger, artist and photographer. Mom of two grown kids, nana to three boys. Just loving life and enjoying things around me.
Was reading blogs this morning when I visted http://curiousasacathy.com/ ....she did a question and answer blog so I thought I would follow in her steps and do that today.
What did you want to be when you were a kid? I went through this phase of wanting to be a fashion designer. I was always drawing dresses and clothes on my papers at school, my folders and notebooks! Funny that I would want to be that since I have never been into fashion. I do not wear name brand clothes and I dress with what I feel good wearing! Then I decided since I loved cutting my dolls hair that I would be a hair stylist! LOL....yep, that did not turn out either.
Which “Friends'” character do you relate to the most? Why? Gosh I don't know. Not the OCD Monica for sure. Maybe the flippy Phoebe!! HAHA...I like her cause she don't give a crap what people think of her! But, no I am not the flaky. Joey is a bit like Phoebe, flaky in a male way. So not him. Rachel, level headed but jumps before thinking. Candler is the level headed with humor. So I think that would be me with a hint of Rachel and a hint of Phoebe!
Do you like your name? Why?Well I guess after 57 yrs it has grown on me. haha!! When I was growing up I wanted a boys name like Billie, Bobbie or something like that. I would for sure rather be called Pam and not my real given name of Pamela. I think of my mom being mad at me when I hear Pamela!!!
Are you messy or neat? Messy....yep, that is me. I have never been one that was organized and I never put things back where they went when I got them out but....with the fibro the last 5 yrs have been rough. On good days I like to do something fun and the house has suffered due to it. Yep....I am messy.
How tall are you?5’2″.. I grew fast, was taller then most of the folks in my elementary school class but the summer of 6th grade I stopped and was past up by everyone.
How tall were you when you were 10? Probably my given 5'2
What is your guilty pleasure? I would say chocolate or ice cream now.
What are you saving money for right now? Trip to Calif to see my son
How many Pringle’s can you eat at once? You know these things are addicting.....with that said, the whole can before my surgery....now probably only about 10 or so. If that many.
Tea or coffee? Tea -sweet was my tea of choice all my life but when I developed diabetes in 2012...I stopped the sweet part.
Are you an introvert or an extrovert? I have always been an extrovert, but the last few years I have become more of a hermit making me more of a introvert I think. Pain tends to change you.
What will be your Halloween costume this year? I don't plan this far in advance....I was a witch last yr. I have been an old woman, a clown, Minion, vampire and my fav was Ms Peacock with a candle stick in the library over the yrs. But this yr......guess we will wait and see. Losing all this weight maybe something sexy!
Sweet or salty? Been staying away from sweets since surgery....so I guess salty.
Favorite social media? I guess Facebook. Then Pinterest and then blogging.
Who is the last person you kissed? Person.....gosh, its been so long. Shame the dog is not a person! Maybe a grandson!
What is your favorite breakfast? Pancakes
When is your birthday? Feb. I am actually a sweetheart baby born on the 14th
When did you start your blog? I started in 2008....never having any followers because with work I did not have the time to put into hunting blogs to follow, following them....just since I retired I have found all you great bloggers
What is your opinion on the Kardashians? Who? Oh them....I pay them no attention.
How would you describe your style? Comfortable!
What color is your hair? I was born with almost black hair. Dark brown through life till I started playing with dye and then it went from dark brown, to light, to blonde, to reddish brown....forgetting my true color until I started letting the gray grow in and I saw lots of DARK color, it was not long before the gray took over
What color socks are you wearing? its summer time, I don't put those on in the summer.
What is your dream job? Job.....I am retired, who wants to go back to work. HAHA probably something in photography or painting.
Dogs or cats? I am a dog person
What makes you weird? I have a lot of thoughts or behavior that tends to turn me to the weird out look. Actually I am a nut, silly and joking around all the time. My nieces and nephews love me but think I am strange.....is that the same as weird? One calls me different, one calls me flamboyant ...so I don't know!
Celebrity crush? Donny Osmond to this day
Opinion on cigarettes? never been a smoker. Don't like it. Can't be in a closed room or car with it.
Do you want/have children? How many? I have two. My daughter is 36 Amber and my son Cory will soon be 30.

But about 1.5 yrs ago Julie posted her senior pic of FB.It hit me...I knew her, you know likebefore I met her at Chris'. I sent a message asking if she wentto DuPont? Nope she was a McGavockstudent so that was not where I knewher from.
