Re: Tuesday questions! :)

1. Dad's Scottish/British and Mom's German/Acadian (Atlantic French Canadian). But all in Canada for many generations

2. Coffee and a cinnamon bun (a gooey one!)

3. Cliffs/ledges

4. Tough one - does dessert count?

5. My husband, he works so hard, is so even tempered and puts up with me!

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

Dessert always does have it's own section in cookbooks and menus.  Therefor I believe it counts as a "type".

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

And there are restaurants that serve only desserts, sometimes in multiple courses! I live for desserts! We have a chest freezer for food and the fridge freezer is the dessert freezer. I have multiple kinds of cheesecake, cupcakes, brownies and ice cream ready to be defrosted and eaten depending on my mood!

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

1 - I'm German (Prussian and Bohemian actually), Irish, and Norwegian.  Born and raised in Wisconsin.

 

2 - Coffee.  I love my K-Cup machine.

 

3 - I think I might be somewhat claustrophobic. It makes me physically uncomfortable just to see someone in a restrictive space. I’ll be watching some archaeology something or other on tv and they’re squeezing themselves into these almost completely buried tunnels and I just cannot handle it. However, I could stand in a small closet and be just fine. It’s the possibility of getting stuck I think that really freaks me out.

 

4 - Italian

 

5 - My Grandpa (on my Mom's side).  He's deceased now but he built himself a very successful business and with only an 8th grade education.  

On a side note, my Grandma (on my Dad's side) is 95.  How's that for spunk?

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

@kalex- LOL! No as in large bodies of water that I can't touch the bottom as in drowning fear.

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

lmao i have the same problem! and you have no idea whats swimming under you 0.0 its so scary

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

Oh that makes more sense.  Ha!  

I thought, "Under what circumstances does this poor woman have water threatening her head?  Are people putting buckets above doorways?"

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

1.) What is your background? like where are you/your parents/relatives from? American born, Pakistani parents
2.) whats your favorite thing that gets you going in the morning? There is absolutely nothing in this world that can get me going in the morning, lol. 
3.) what is you biggest phobia? spiders, heights, and a certain amount of social phobia
4.) if you could live off one type of food (italian, chinese, cuban etc.) what would it be? pakistani
5.) who is someone you really admire? my mentor from grad school. If you've seen Scrubs, he is the Dr. Cox to my J.D, lol.

    ^^ aah, this feels familiar!

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

1.) What is your background? like where are you/your parents/relatives from? - I'm Italian.

 

2.) whats your favorite thing that gets you going in the morning? I'd have to say waking up, seeing my kitty, hearing her purr and cuddle with me puts me in a pretty good mood to get up and star the day!

 

3.) what is you biggest phobia? Driving and getting into a wreck. Smiley Sad

 

4.) if you could live off one type of food (italian, chinese, cuban etc.) what would it be? Italian.

 

5.) who is someone you really admire? Walt Disney. He really did some amazing things in his life.

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

1.) I'm a 1st generation Californian. My parents are from Philadelphia and my grandparents/great-grandparents resided in Virginia for about 4 generations or so. I'm predominately black and 1/4th Native American (Cherokee on dad's side and blackfoot on my mom's side). For about half of my life I had the worst east coast PA accent despite never living there. It wasn't until a couple people pointed it out that I made an effort to 'fix' it.

 

2.) Coffee, pandora, and water

 

3.) I have the absolute worst fear of dead birds and rodents. I'm talking panic attack bad. It's the silliest thing in the world I know, but you could not pay me enough to pick up either. The funny thing is that I don't mind dealing or seeing larger dead things (dogs, cats...people).

 

4.) Umm...does gourmet vegan food count? Haha I'm not 100% vegan, but always feel like I'm doing my body such a service by eliminating animal byproducts.

 

5.) That's such a difficult question! My family and a lot of my friends for their bravery, kindness, determination, and hard work. They motivate me to be a better person Smiley Happy.

 

Whimsically yours,
Janine

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

1. I was born here, but my family is from Romania, and other eastern European countries - my dad's side of the family is 100% Romanian, and my mom's side is from Romania, Hungary, Yugoslavia....

 

2. Honestly, not too much. I'm more of a night person, so I stay up verrry late, and I almost always have a hard time getting up in the morning. However, I love seeing my dogs and cat wag their tails when they first see me in the morning Smiley Happy .

 

3. I recently developed this crippling fear of walking down stairs in pitch dark. My knees instantly start to buckle and I panic!!

 

4. Thai food!

 

5. Aside from my parents and best friend, I really admire Christine from Temptalia. She is such an inspiration!

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

1) My ancestor's came over from England in the late 1500's and, after a few decades in Virginia, went up into the Appalachian Mountains and didn't come down until a couple of generations ago.  There's probably some time in there in which my family tree did not fork.  Redneck, through and through.  (Sorry if that insults anybody.)

 

2) Must...have...caffeine!

 

3) Not being needed

 

4) Italian

 

5) Any strong woman with grace & poise.  We call them Steel Magnolias down here.   

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

I currently live in MS, so I understand haha

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

1.  Both of my parents were born in the same small village in Italy and came to the US when they were young teenagers. 

 

2. Caffeine - either coffee or tea will do!

 

3. Bugs and creepy crawly things.  I don't know why but I freak out if there is one in the house.  T

 

4. Tie between Mexican and Thai. and chocolate... i could definitely live on chocolate Smiley Wink

 

5. My dad.  He came to the US on his own without his family as a teenager. He started a business from nothing and built a great life for his family. Hard work and dedication truly pays off.
