Being Tagged

I was tagged for the "11 things" post by a couple of people BUT Kristen tagged me first so I'm going with her rules for this one.  I know I'm supposed to tag people back however, I think everyone I know in blogland has already been tagged.

11 Random Things about Me
1. I'm a morning person!  I am NOT a night person, most nights I'm in bed by 9:00, lights off at 9:30pm.  Lately, I feel like I can't get enough sleep, I think it's the time of year.  It's cold and dark outside and the bed is warm and cozy.
2. I get anxious about being late, anxious and annoyed.
3. I don't really like to read.  I used to but I think grad school killed my love for reading.  Now, a book has to be incredibly entertaining and grabbing from page 1 to hold my interest.
4. I am slightly obsessed with the Biggest Loser.  Now that I discovered it's on Netflix instant, I think I've watched 3 seasons maybe.
5. I sometimes get in over my head.
6. If I could I would be a professional party planner.
7. I don't love running.  Sometimes this surprises people.  I like to run but I don't LOVE it.  My exercise love is the pool.
8. This is the first time in my life I have EVER been able to do REAL pushups!
9. While I love to cook and love to try new and exciting cuisines, I eat pretty much the same thing every day for lunch during the work week.
10. I love to clean.
11. I used to hate grocery shopping until I started shopping at Trader Joe' much more of a pleasant shopping experience.

Kristen's questions for me:
1. What is your biggest pet peeve?
--Toss up between BAD drivers and people that are consistently late.
2. If stranded on a desert island what 3 personal items (not including survival tools) would you want?
--Oh man, tough one.  Good shoes (running or hiking), Mr. Pi (does he count) and my iPhone (to call for rescue when I feel like I've enough of the desert island).
3. What’s the one food you could never give up?
--Dairy products (yup, all of them...except maybe plain milk, not a huge fan of that but CHEESE, yogurt, ice cream, sour cream, cottage cheese, etc)
4. What’s your best quality?
--Listening...and I give pretty great hugs.
5. What was the last thing you really laughed over?
--Hmmm, don't laugh!  Photos my hubby took while I was lip-syncing. HAHA!
6. What is your go-to book recommendation?
--Ugh, reading really isn't my thing but I did love both The Hunger Games and Twilight series =).  Also, if you haven't read Harry Potter, read it.
7. What’s your ideal time of day to workout?
--Morning...specifically 7:00 am...too bad that's about when I have to be at work.
8. What’s the last food you ate?
--Spaghetti squash with red sauce and cheese!
9. Who is your favorite athlete (dead or alive)?
--So many good ones but the first one that came to my mind and one that I have memories watching as a kid was Summer Sanders (she's a swimmer).
10. What’s the last movie you watched and would you recommend it?
--Midnight in Paris (I think) and yes, I liked it!  I'm not usually a fan of Woody Allen but I did like it.  Actually, the last movie we watched may have been Thor and that one sucked.
11. Toilet paper over or under?
--Um, whatever way I put it on the holder.

If you haven't been tagged and need something to blog about, consider yourself tagged...just use Kristen questions, they were good ones.
