10 things about me you don't know

Thursday, February 18, 2010
since i'm stuck here.
recovering from the surgery.
{wisdom teeth}
and in lots of pain.
& unable to sew.
i thought i'd share a few things with you.
that you probably don't know.

1. i'm allergic to most pain meds... including those they gave me this week... so i'm surviving on Tylenol & lots of ice.

2. i love chocolate & candy... i have a big time sweet tooth. {which is so not happy this week... & is surviving off of rita's water ice}

3. i work full time... and sew & quilt in my free time. luckily i have the greatest boss in the world. {my dad}

4. i founded a chapter of delta phi epsilon at drexel u. when i was in college & now i'm an advisor to the chapter at temple u.

5. i've never missed a single episode of LOST. the show may be strange at times but i've been committed since the beginning.

6. my favorite color is orange. when i was a little kid my favorite color was purple.

7. i didn't learn to drive till i was 18. i had no desire to learn & my brother finally convinced me to take my test.

8. my parents went to the same high school... graduated the same year... but didn't meet till they were 20. they are still together & celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary last year.

9. i'm allergic to most flowers... the smell drives me bananas. all but purple irises.

10. i'm addicted to RENT. i've seen it on broadway a few times... know the soundtrack by heart... and watch the movie on occasion as well.

so there you go.
hopefully i'll be back up & running soon.
cause this is no fun.

miss you!

We miss you too! I have just started watching Lost. I am on Season 2 right now. I love chocolate and candy, hated orange until I had my son and now I love it. Purple irises were the first thing I planted at my first house and now I am making a quilt based on those colours. I hope you will be getting better soon.

I've been wondering about you since you went in for your surgery... I hope you feel better real soon!

I didn't learn to drive till I was 18 too. My dad had to nag me to do get my license.

Take it easy and spoil yourself a little. I hope you are feeling better very soon. I loved the fun facts about yourself. You are very interesting.

I LOVE Rita's Water Ice (went to college outside Philly)! Though probably not for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Feel better soon!

mascanlon said...

Hope a day or two from now and you're back in sewing mood! Most pain killers make me ill too, not fun!

Sandy said...

Feel better real soon. I enjoy your blog and your creativity!

Heather said...

Thanks for letting us get to know you a little better - I too am a lover of all things LOST!!!!! Seriously I'm an addict - there should be some sort of 12 step program for people like me - I need to know how its gonna end - AHHHHH!

CitricSugar said...

Thanks for the quirks! I had my wisdom teeth out last winter and one was impacted. But the "good stuff" was completely ineffectual on me so Tylenol was my crutch, too. And popsicles.

Heal quickly!

Wishing you a speedy recovery. Take care.

amylouwho said...

yes, get better soon! hopefully you've got a good stash of ice cream to keep that mouth cold!

kaiolohiakids said...

Thanks for the nice intro! You sure accomplish a lot for someone who works full time. So sorry you're allergic to pain meds-they really help with dental work! Hope you feel better soon.

Tricia said...

Feel better! I had mine out ten years ago and I remember how much it sucked.

LOST is awesome! I don't want it to end though :( I only got into it recently but after alot of LOST marathons through netflix I'm caught up.

Marlene said...

I Love LOST!!!!

Feel Better soon, ICE, ICE and more ICE!!!

susan said...

Glad the surgery is over, and that you are on the mend. Get well quickly so you can sew, sew, sew. Love your work and chocolate.

Rebekah said...

that's so cool about your parents!

Hope you're feeling better.

I just got into Lost last year and am so glad I did. Just wish I could watch this last season in a couple of days like we did with all the other seasons :)

Hey, there chipmunk.
Can't wait until you're 100% again. Hellos to those cute parental types of yours...35 years....you better ask them what their secret is!!

Sinta Renee said...

I hope you will be all better very soon! I know about those reactions to meds/can it get any worse? Thanks for sharing the little tid bits about yourself!

Laura said...

Hope you feel better soon. At least your Rita's in open in the winter!

Ann said...

Glad to hear you are feeling better - when I had mine out I only had 2 - the joke was that I was only give 1/2 the wisdom as everybody eles. I totally understand the pain med issue - its the same for me as well as the flowers issue. I also work for my family so thats a huge benefit for time off. Hope you continue to feel good.

whatktmadenext said...

Oh no, it doesn't sound like you're having much fun :( I'm getting my lower wisdom teeth out next Saturday and I'm trying very hard not to think about it! I really hope you make a speedy recovery and are back sewing ASAP!

Jackie said...

I love Rent. Saw it with the original cast on Broadway when I was in HS. Also love orange, hence the blog name and the color of my studio.
