Toosdae ?'s


Well hello there my lovelies! How are you all doing on this...rainy, gray day? I sure hope that wherever you are you don't have to worry about flooding and that you stay dry. If you're here in New England-stay strong, warmer, sunnier weather is just around the corner.

1. When you are pumping gas, do you "top it off" or just stop when the pump automatically stops? If you top if off, do you have certain number you round it up to?

2. If you could only see the world in black and white with the exception of one color, what color would you choose?

3. Did you have a teacher who picked on you when you were in school? If so, what did they tease you about?

My answers:

1. Yes, I top it off-I generally round it up to the next even number, but I don't have a specific number I aim for.

2. Oh, what a terrible life that would be-to only see one color! But if I had to choose...I would say...the color of the ocean in Mexico.

3. I did, but it was in a good way. He picked on everyone he liked but he did it in such a way that you felt special. He also made a point to ask us if we were OK when we were down. It was nice.

1) I let it go off but also round after it does. Sometimes I just the little thingy so I dont have to hold it (like for instance if its raining or if I have to go into the gas station)
2) That would be so sad! Im thinking either a shade of turquoise aqua color I love, or yellow
3) Kids picked on me, I dont know about teachers..... Do you remember a teacher picking on me at all?

1. If it's within 50 cents of the next dollar, I'll round it up. If it stops just a few cents over a dollar, I'll round it to 50 cents.

2. There are so many colors I love, it's hard to pick just one to keep forever. But I think I'll choose green, because three seasons out of the year I'd be more or less surrounded by it every time I went outside.

3. Not really. My AP English teacher sort of, but it was just her sense of humor, not really mean-spirited at all. I got cracked on a few times for the fact that I was the valedictorian and my school folders were covered in Power Rangers stickers. :D

I round up as much as I think the tank will hold. I've had this method backfire though and spilled gas everywhere b/c I wasn't paying attention.

2. If you could only see the world in black and white with the exception of one color, what color would you choose?

Blue! Sky, water, husband's eyes!

3. Did you have a teacher who picked on you when you were in school? If so, what did they tease you about?

There was a Nun who always called me Leeeeeeza. Drove me nuts.

1. I don't bother. When I'm not traveling I tend to buy very small quantities of gas anyway, because I'm broke and work at home. A few gallons will last me a week or more.

2. Green. I'd miss all the other colors but without green a trip to the mountains would be sad.

3. School was not a good time for me. Mostly teachers hated my handwriting but I was generally given a hard time about a lot of things because I was a girl being raised by her father and I was (am) socially awkward. I always liked learning things but the actual school environment...not so much.

1. I usually just round up to the next quarter ($.00, $.25, $.50, $.75). Steve also rounds up... to the closest palindrome. No, I'm not kidding. I love my geek. :) (ex.: $28.82).

2. Hmmm... I think maybe blue. Or pink. Maybe flip a coin, but one of those two. They're soothing to me.

3. Yes - Mr. King. We used to harass him in Honors Biology, so he harassed us back. :) It was a mutual harassment, but not the bad kind.

1. Top it off...I like to get to an even dollar amount if possible

2. Caribbean ocean aqua would do

3. I had a teacher who disliked me and gave me crap all the time about anything he could. He was an a**hat

In NJ you can't pump your own gas, but the gas attendents usually top it off. When I was in NY I'd stop when the pump automatically stopped.

2. If you could only see the world in black and white with the exception of one color, what color would you choose?

Red, it would be such a pretty contrast to all the black and white.

3. Did you have a teacher who picked on you when you were in school? If so, what did they tease you about?

I was in color guard and in my senior year we had a competition after a bad rain storm so the field was really muddy and I my shoe fell off and I had to march the competition with one shoe. Fast forward to the end of year banquet. The whole band and color guard is there with all their families. It was a tradition for the band director to get up and highlight the funny things that happened during the band season...and of course he HAD to mention the shoe incident in front of everyone. I so wanted to disappear.

Grrrr...late again!

1. I stop when the pump stops. I pay with a credit card so the amount doesn't matter. I just want a full gas tank.

2. Yellow.

3. I don't remember, but I think not.
