Five Question Friday

Okay....Let's get Five Question Friday on the road!!

1. Can you drive a stick shift?
Yes I can 8) After I learned to drive a car, my dad taught me how to drive his VW Fox which was a stick shift. Am I the best at it? No, I learned in's pretty flat there, so I do have some trouble with going on hills/inclines. I either roll back, or a gun it and squeal out LOL. But give me a flat surface and I am good to go! Hubby as a stick now, I don't drive it, but if I had to I would be able to.
2. What are two foods you just can't eat?
Hmm so many to choose from LOL I'll go with Liver and beets tho. You know beets are nasty when even your dog won't eat them! None of the dogs I had while growing up would ever eat the beets I would try to sneak to them. My mom wound up with a stain on her carpet from the dogs not eating those nasty things. But then I got smart and figuered out how to sneak them back into the serving dish when no one was at the table.

3. Do you buy Girl Scout Cookies? What is your favorite kind?
Yes every year!! I always spend $20 lol. 3 boxes of Tag-A-Longs and 2 boxes of Thin Mints. I love freezing my tag-a-longs and then eating them, they are chocolately peanut buttery goodness!

4. How do you pamper yourself?
Pamper myself? What's that? Not really...I would like to do the occasional pedicure, but every time I have extra money for it I wind up spending it on the kids *sigh* lol

5. What is your nickname and how did you get it?
I'm mommy, or mom. My kids gave me the nickname 8) Then there's also Lia...a lot of my online gaming friends still call me that even tho I retired from EQ 3 years ago and from WoW about a year and a half ago. My character's name in both games was Lianye, but everyone called me Lia. And then finally..there is Nerdlips *sigh* a nickname that my best friend gave me back in High School and she still use's to this day LOL. Can't really remember how it came to be, but I am Nerdlips and she is Dorkfish 8) Of course right now, she is Fat Bastard because she is pregnant with Twins ♥

  1. All driving is hard when you've learned in AZ, land of nice flat roads, ninety degree turns, and nonexistent pedestrians. I am finally coping with a stick shift in Boston (and I didn't kill my better half in the process yet). And for the record, my dog loves beets (she's white. that may have something to do with it, as they turn her pinkish when she licks them before eating)

  2. I learned how to drive a stick in Connecticut on the hills. Needless to say I'm not that bad at it. However, its been years, so perhaps I am!

    I second the liver & beets.

    Pampering for me consists of getting time to read.

    Maybe I should just answer this mess on my own blog.

  3. You must have a weird dog Jessica LOL 8) We had 3 dogs that never ever ate beets.

  4. I have never had a beet! It's just one of those things I *know* I won't like even without trying it. :) My husband thinks I'm nuts, though, because they are like his favorite thing EVER. :P
