A little bit of sunshine

Because Bethany loves me so or maybe just because I commented on her blog recently, she nominated for this little beaut.

About the award:The award is circulated to those bloggers to let them know that their posts brighten your day.

The Rules:1.  Include award logo in a post or on your blog.
2.  Link to the person who nominated you – Bethany @ Accidental Intentions
3.  Answer 10 questions about yourself.
4.  Nominate 10 bloggers to receive the award. Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs letting them know they’ve been nominated.


1. What did you want to be when you grew up when you were little? 

I can't very well recall. Probably a teacher because that's what all the other little girls wanted to be, but I do kind of recall saying I wanted to be a doctor. The idea of being an engineer didn't occur to me until I was a sophomore in high school.  And even then I wasn't really sure what it all entailed.

2. What’s your writing utensil of choice?

A black pen that doesn't ink too much or is "wet" when it writes because my hand smears it. #lefthandedproblems

3. If you need to ask someone a question and that person is not within earshot (i.e.: talking isn’t an option), are you most likely to text them, call them, instant message them (either through gchat or otherwise), or e-mail them?

It mostly depends on the person, but my favorite way is instant message via g-chat or Google Talk as it is now called on my phone.  I facebook instant message with Kelly often, but I think she is the only one.

4. What was your preferred study location in college? (Or now, if you’re currently in school)

The commons of the engineering building-the actual name of the building is the Seamans Center.  It did make me angry when finals week would roll around and a bunch of non-engineers would show up and steal all the tables.  On the bright side, if you showed up at 7 am, you could get a table.

And I brought all this stuff with me
5. What’s your stupid human trick? (i.e.: ear wiggling, tongue rolling, etc.)

Hmmmm, I can touch my tongue to my nose. 

6. How many e-mail accounts do you have active right now?

Three: gmail, hotmail, and my work email. 

7. What did you have for lunch yesterday?

Yesterday we went out to for lunch to celebrate my coworker's retirement to Julio's Latin Cafe.  I had some Blackened Basa Fish Tacos with rice and beans.  It was delicious and I have leftovers so I can eat the same meal over again on Monday.  *I wrote this on Saturday and now it's Wednesday, but I'm not changing my answer*

8. What’s your favorite type of weather?

Slight breeze and slightly cloudy in the mid-70s. 

9. Have you ever met anyone famous? And if so, who?

One time I met Craig Alexander who is a famous triathlete and Ironman World Champion.  And Dave Scott who has some ridiculous number of Ironman Championship titles.

10. What’s your ideal mode of transportation?

I wish I could ride my bike everywhere but sadly, where I live is not all that bike friendly.  

So now I'm supposed to nominate 10 other people, but since Bethany nominated like most of the people that read here regularly, I only nominate a few.

5. If you are reading this, consider yourself tagged.

2. What was your favorite college class?
3. What is the best ice cream flavor?

5. Favorite football team? If you hate football, just say the Iowa Hawkeyes and I'll be happy.
