Because I have zero intention...

Most weekends, I plan on doing a BYOC vlog, because I'm a lazy cheater like that, and these questions give me something to talk about that I didn't have to think up by myself. This weekend, I have zero intention of vlogging, so I'm about to complete my very first written BYOC! I'm so excited I almost can't stand it... here goes:

1. Let’s brag a little….what’s the best perk you’ve ever had in your job (current or past)? Any employment counts - even if you’re a stay at home mom – you have perks (and the hardest job ever in my opinion).

*I'm a nurse and the main perk of that profession is that it's recession proof? In the hospital, it's a perk if you don't get blood or puke or vomit or urine or your choice of body fluid, on you. Good day! Since I'm now an desk jockey, we have a free work out facility (brand new top of the line equipment, and we also get free yoga, zumba, etc.). There are also free massages. And some free lunches. Not the kind of perks some people have- like traveling the world... that would be what I'd want. Sorry to say this, but sometimes perks are a little evil in my book. There are some industries that overcompensate themselves and their employees, which is awesome on their end of it (and I've profited from this in a previous life), but it's really awful for the people who rely on those industries. Anyway, I know there's rhetoric that's given why it's ok for them to do what they do... but having been on both sides of the fence... I know what I've lived and that's the end of what I'll say.

2. Do you ever lie in your blog?

*No, and I probably should!!!

3. What do you wear to bed?

*I wear the "cloak of chastity and warmth". I freeze to death unless it's 80 degrees or above (IN THE HOUSE). My sleep ensemble consists of a thin layer including long sleeved t-shirt and thick socks, covered by a sweat suit (preferably hooded so I don't lose heat from my head if I'm really cold), and if I'm going all the way, I will include a third layer of either an extra sweatshirt or my thick fleece bathrobe. Surprisingly, Mr. W does not find this sexy. And I don't care because beds are mostly for s.l.e.e.p.i.n.g! And I always dress for the occasion...

4. Where do you go for advice?

*I'm an introvert, and go inside myself a little too much, I over think almost everything. I value the opinions of my husband, daughter, and you my blogger friends. I keep my input base small, but I like it varied so I don't get stuck in an irrational thought pattern. I take in all data, but I'm a decision maker by nature. I process everything, but rarely do anything based solely on the fact that someone advised it. It's a me issue and isn't helped by the fact that I get paid for my decision making ability.

5. Repeat question. Make someone a superstar without using a blog award. What comment or blog stuck with you the most this week and why?

*There are so many going around in my head, I don't even know where to start. I think you can tell when I've been reading some blogs because my own will often touch on the same or similar subjects. I'm not the best at mentioning people by name or blog, which I don't want to feel guilty about, but might try to make a more conscious effort to do so. Like Draz, I think the planning committee for Chicago are all superstars... a literal dream team. We're ALL amazing fantastical sexy smart talented beautiful superstars!


  1. When you mentioned you were an introvert, i honestly thought you were joking. You have been so open and honest and vibrat in your blogging, I see you as anything but introverted!!! I can't wait to meet you in Chicago!

  2. The cloak of chastity and warmth.'re a hussy! LOL Thank God you're a nurse - when we all pass out from too much laughing in Chicago you can save us all and be the hero. Oh and I love you. That is all.
