Ten on Tuesday (18)

I hope everyone had a great long weekend! I did! I am sure I should be compiling a very interesting post about it, but this week at work is a busy one since it is actually TWO days shorter than normal. We usually work 6 days a week, including Saturday. So. In order to preserve my brain for more lucrative things, I am linking up with Chelsea at Roots and Rings for a fun ToT list! Hopefully I will be more coherent tomorrow!

1. What temperature do you keep your thermostat on during the day?
I usually keep it around 74. I get cold pretty easily. Sometimes I put it down to 72 or 73 and then turn it off for a while after the room gets chilly. 

2. What temperature do you keep your thermostat on at night?
Pretty much the same as above: 72-74 degrees. 

3. In a canister of mixed nuts, do you pick out certain varieties and leave the others?
I don't really like hazelnuts, macadamia nuts or brazil nuts as much as some of the others. I prefer gorp (or trail mix, as it is called by some), where you have mixed nuts, raisins, craisins and m&ms. I like to have a perfect mix of everything! NO CHERRY PICKING!

4. What is your favorite kind of M&M?
Almonds. But I don't really eat candy or sweets. 

5. How do you buy books? (Amazon, bookstore, new, used, electronic, etc)
Goodwill/Thrift Store or Amazon (free classics mostly) OR borrowed from the local library

6. How do you like your eggs cooked?
Fried DEAD Hard with NO runny yolk or scrambled. Scrambled is usually safer because for some reason some people don't understand what NO RUNNY YOLK means.

7. Can you whistle?
Of course. I can do a wolf whistle or a regular whistle. I can whistle blowing out or in. I can be on your team when we play Cranium and you have to whistle songs and guess what they are. 

8. What common word do you always misspell?
Because. Not because I don't know HOW to spell it but because my fingers go to fast and I end up getting "becuase" instead. 

9. Are you afraid of flying?
Haha. No, thank goodness, because I would be a Very, Very nervous individual right now. 

10. How often do you go shopping?
I go to the grocery store roughly once a week. I go clothes shopping roughly once a year. I go book shopping roughly once a month. I shop for flights and cars and hotels more than anything else!

Your turn! Answer one (or more) of these Qs in the comments or go over to Roots and Rings to link up!


  1. You go shopping for clothes once a year?! You are my hero. :)

  2. I am a great whistler, too! Or hummer. So I am good at those sort of questions on cranium too. :) 72-74 is the optimal temperature for me, too!

  3. #4: Pretzel M&Ms are the only way to go. Those things are amazing!

  4. Runny egg yolks are so gross! I can't even bring myself to make eggs for my husband like that, because they ARE STILL RAW pretty much.

  5. I don't know if you and I would get along in real life, I am a cherry picker with everything! I eat all the goodies first, the good nuts and random chocolates in there, and work my way down. The hubs hates it, haha.

  6. I always misspell "the" for the same reason. But a word that I just can't ever seem to spell right is "embarrassed." I always miss the second R.
