I need a post that won't make me cringe.

Between BSC-explosion the last 2 days, and my dumb surgery, I need something fun.


Do you and SO have nicknames for each other?

What is your work environment like (or equivalent)?

In honor of the anniversary of his death (Friday),  How do you feel about Johnny Cash?

Paper or plastic? Or canvas?

Guilty pleasures?

Pet peeves?

    Not really.  But sometimes I call him different names because his real name is difficult for me to say.

    What is your work environment like (or equivalent)?
    Very laid back.  I'm a grad student, so I can pretty much make my own rules and schedule.

    In honor of the anniversary of his death (Friday),  How do you feel about Johnny Cash?
    I don't love him or hate him or his music.

    Paper or plastic? Or canvas?
    Paper.  Or those old lady bags made of recycled plastic.

    Guilty pleasures?
    Real Housewives and Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

    Pet peeves?
    Right now it is adults with full time jobs that eat all of my food and adults that complain when they have to work more than 20 hours a week.  Welcome to the real world.  Those are pretty specific though.

    Job you would LOVE:
    I want to work in a museum.  Or maybe tutoring.  I mostly hate teaching, but I enjoy the one-on-one time with students who struggle.

    Job you would HATE:
    Anything involving math/finances.

    How do you feel about St. Patrick's Day?
    I find all of the "Irish" music annoying but I don't mind the excuse to drink beer and eat Irish potatoes.

    I'm a grad student, so it's pretty easy going.

    I have many, but they escape me at the moment.  The only one I can think of is when one of my roommates puts the toilet paper on the roll the wrong way.

    Job you would LOVE:

    Job you would HATE:
    Grad School? Seriously though, I'd HATE hate hate to be a saleswoman.

    I like Irish music, and it's a fun excuse to wear green and eat lots of potatoes.  Although, I haven't "celebrated" St. Patty's Day in years.

    What is your work environment like (or equivalent)?
    I'm the only girl in a corporate office, so very manly!

    Love him! I grew up in Tennessee and have always loved country music. I own his greatest hits!

    Plastic, because I like to reuse as mini garbage bags for the bathroom trash cans. Canvas, because sometimes I have to commute with groceries and it's the most durable and comfortable to carry.

    Girlfriends (TV show; it's like the African-American version of Sex & the City, and it's awesome!)

    Pet peeves?
    People who create or use new/slang spellings for words or who frequently shorten words.  Examples: preggers, chillaxin, luv (especially 'tru luv'), etc.

    Yes, I call him Moose, and he calls me Wondy (as in won-dee-ful). I know, gag.

    What is your work environment like (or equivalent)?
    I work in a start-up company with pretty much all 30 year old men. We have a foos-ball table for brainstorming and i get emails with Family Guy clips too often for my liking. We're also all workaholics, which is lame.

    Do you and SO have nicknames for each other?
    Sort of. They're plays on both of our names...I call him by the Russian diminutive of his name (I was taking Russian the semester we started dating) and he pronounces my name like he has a lisp.

    What is your work environment like (or equivalent)?
    Well, I'm in my last semester of college, and school is school. I have a lot of hostile feelings towards people in my major who are taking random classes to get easy As (and there's a lot). On the other hand, the lab I work in is a lot of fun; we're all pretty snarky.

    In honor of the anniversary of his death (Friday),  How do you feel about Johnny Cash?
    I like his cover of "Hurt". Otherwise, I guess I'm kind of neutral. Country's not really my thing. He was incredibly talented though.

    Paper or plastic? Or canvas?
    Canvas. I keep them in my car.

    Guilty pleasures?
    TK, The Biggest Loser, peopleofwalmart.com

    Pet peeves?
    Leaving dirty dishes all over the apartment, or stacked in the sink with no intent to wash them. And lately...snow blocking multiple spaces in my complex's parking lot, which doesn't have enough spots as it is.

    Job you would LOVE:
    Bioterrorism threat analyst, working with BSL-3 bacteria. I just think it would be so awesome to be working with this stuff all the time, and doing it to keep people safe.

    Job you would HATE:
    Retail Sales. I did a stint at Bath and Body Works over Hannukah/Christmas one year, and by the time New Year's rolled around, I was practically clawing at the walls.

    How do you feel about St. Patrick's Day?

    I feel like it's just another day, really. I'm not much of a drinker, though I've got a pretty decent chunk of Irish in me. So...I guess it's a day for me to wear green and avoid getting pinched.

    How do you feel about St. Patrick's Day? I used to like it because I used to go to an Irish Catholic school. All of the nuns were irish and actually from Ireland and had thick accents and sometimes we got to see them Irish dance. Now I don't really care for it, but I suppose it's okay.

    Do you and SO have nicknames for each other?
    I sometimes call him binky/binky bear...it started out as a joke about how annoying that nickname is and it just sort of stuck. haha. He just calls me Kels or the traditional terms of endearment, baby, beautiful, etc. (it's annoying, but I think that's why it's so much fun)

    But of some funny nicknames...I call my brother bugger butt and he calls me mayonaise head...oh family inside jokes.

    What is your work environment like (or equivalent)?
    It's pretty laid back and the brokers are a mess...they still think they're in their early twenties and drink like it too. It's pretty fun unless the only female broker that works there sends us 32438952348320 emails with changes to one flier or the VP brings his kids in...they are terrors!

    In honor of the anniversary of his death (Friday),  How do you feel about Johnny Cash?
    I think his relationship with June is really sweet, but I hate what he did to his first wife.

    Paper or plastic? Or canvas?
    I use plastic right now, but everytime I'm checking out at HT I want to grab a bunch of their canvas bags...I think I will next time.

    Guilty pleasures?
    Any and all wedding shows...even Bridezillas...I tell BF that it's like a how to in reverse.

    Pet peeves?
    Pretty much anything that has to do with my roommate and her dog...especially all the nasty hair that the dog sheds and she NEVER sweeps up...26 more days! woohoo!
    When BF starts snoring/falls asleep when we're watching a movie...especially when he picked it out!

    Job you would LOVE:

  • edited December 2011
    Do you and SO have nicknames for each other?
    Nope, but we make up for it by having like 10 nicknames for each dog.

    What is your work environment like (or equivalent)?
    I have my own office, with a door, which is awesome.  Unfortunately, it's a converted closet, so I have no window, which is sad.  The environment itself moves drastically from laid-back and somewhat boring to fast-paced and high stress (I'm a lawyer/lawclerk).

    In honor of the anniversary of his death (Friday),  How do you feel about Johnny Cash?
    Meh.  Never really liked him, but don't dislike him either.  I thought his remake of Hurt was awful, but that's probably because I'm a hardcore NIN fan.

    Paper or plastic? Or canvas?
    Plastic.  We re-use them as poop bags on walks.

    Guilty pleasures?
    Bad TV:  Wedding shows, Secret Life of the American Teenager.

    Pet peeves?
    Most of them have to do with other people's driving.

    Job you would LOVE:
    Wedding planner/coordinator.

    Job you would HATE:
    Telemarketer.  I hate talking on the phone, and I hate trying to sell things by being pushy.  Worst of both.

    How do you feel about St. Patrick's Day?
    I'm from Savannah, so I love it and hate it in equal amounts.  I usually try to avoid downtown though unless I feel like going to "Savannah's Mardi Gras."

    Not really. It's pretty much our names, or babe/baby, hon, etc.

    What is your work environment like (or equivalent)?
    Sometimes it's mind-numbingly dead quiet, other times I literally cannot think straight because I have 20 things going on at the same time. There can be a lot of politics on occasion...I've learned to ignore most of it and just come in and do my job.

    In honor of the anniversary of his death (Friday),  How do you feel about Johnny Cash?
    I like a lot of the stuff he did close to his death. His versions of NIN's "Hurt", and "God's Gonna Cut You Down" are mindblowing.

    Paper or plastic? Or canvas?
    Canvas. I'm pretty sure I'm the only girl that walks around SoFLa grocery stores with canvas bags with Cleveland Browns and Ohio State logos on them. Gotta love my mom. :)

    Guilty pleasures?
    Cadbury Mini Eggs, killer animal movies off the SciFi channel, true crime tv movies on Lifetime (Betty Broderick, anyone?), kettle chips, Pei Wei, Chipotle, sleeping in, massages

    Pet peeves?
    Arrogance, ignorance, hatred, homophobia, racism, bigotry, rude/lousy drivers, most people under the age of 21 in SoFLa, senses of entitlement, loud political commentators that insist on yelling at you for an hour (Glenn Beck, anyone?), Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin, Westboro Baptist Church, people who use the Bible/religion as an excuse for hate/discrimination/violence

    Job you would LOVE:
    Marine biologist (obviously), wildlife rehabilitator, animal trainer, zookeeper, photographer, dance teacher

    Job you would HATE:
    High school teacher, port-o-potty emptier, airline stewardess

    How do you feel about St. Patrick's Day?
    It's a friggin national holiday in my family. I used to take the day off work/school and drink from sunup (well, after I got out of church) to sundown, go to the parade, eat the Irish food, etc. I have to work a double shift this year, was practically in tears when I found out.

    most reality shows ("16 & Pregnant" and "Bridezillas" are worst addiction!), that song "Tik Tok" by Kesha, Fruit by the Foot, Gushers and Taco Bell 

    Pet peeves?
    People who use their cellphones in the movie theater and especially live theater. Slow internet. Bad news via email. Getting put on hold for too long. Momzillas - women who don't talk about anything except their children!

    Job you would LOVE:
    morning talk show deejay, like Elvis Duran or Howard Stern.

    Job you would HATE:
    kindergarten teacher =\  I am not a fan of the small ones.

    How do you feel about St. Patrick's Day?
    this one is a little rough - my dad's birthday was St. Patrick's day and he died almost 2 yrs ago. So last year it was hard, but I've always associated the holiday with my dad and how my mother would always bring him a boutenniere (sp?) of green carnations. Now we leave one at the cemetary for him  =)

    Do you and SO have nicknames for each other?
    he's called me by my middle name since we were kids, just because he likes that no one else does, and i love watching him cringe when i call him Boobaloo!!

    What is your work environment like (or equivalent)?
    *headbang*

    In honor of the anniversary of his death (Friday),  How do you feel about Johnny Cash?
    um, i think of him and see my crazy aunt who never wears matching earrings. she looooooooooves him.

    Paper or plastic? Or canvas?

    CANVAS!! for everything from grocery shopping to an afternoon at the mall to a day at the beach.

    I keep my favorite peppermint candy right next to the bed...I roll over and snack on it in the wee hours...

    How do you feel about St. Patrick's Day?
    I hope last year's was my last wantonly wild/drunk romp. It was fun while it lasted, but the hang-over was eternal. Since I won't be in the States for this one, shouldn't be too hard to keep it under control.

    Not really, just the usual hun, honey, babe -- nothing specific to us

    What is your work environment like (or equivalent)?
    Working with lots of little kids can be overwhelming sometimes but most of the time it makes for a good day.

    In honor of the anniversary of his death (Friday),  How do you feel about Johnny Cash?
    He's not my favorite but I do like him

    Paper or plastic? Or canvas?
    Plastic

    Guilty pleasures?
    Reality T.V. -- I love it for some reason

    Pet peeves?
    People who chew really loudly, it drives me insane!

    Job you would LOVE:
    I think being a flight attendant would be interesting. I love traveling and I really enjoy flying.

    Job you would HATE:
    I have to agree with hetshup that being a jr high teacher would be quite horrible

    How do you feel about St. Patrick's Day?
    I like St. Patrick's Day as long as people don't pinch me. My rule of thumb is you pinch me I will punch you. I have hated that stupid tradition or whatever as long as I can remember. Thankfully I have passed the age where most of my peers enjoy that. But other than that I really like that holiday.

    Nah, I think we've got it figured out. There will likely be some ribbing. Eh, it happens.

    Do you and SO have nicknames for each other? I call him "Banana," and he calls me "Babycakes."

    What is your work environment like (or equivalent)? Oh, you know... grocery store. Viva la English majors!

    In honor of the anniversary of his death (Friday),  How do you feel about Johnny Cash? I grew up with his music. I can still remember my dad making breakfast in the morning and singing "I hear that train a-comin, it's rollin' 'round the bend..." :)

    Paper or plastic? Or canvas? Plastic, because I'm convinced that someday there will be a dog in my house whose poop I will have to clean up, so I save all my plastic bags. Andre's dad raises English Springer Spaniels and as soon as he finds a female in the area, he's studding out his youngest dog and has already told Andre that we'll get the pick of the litter, so there is plenty of dog poop in my future.

    Guilty pleasures? The Australian TV show "Satisfaction." It's about the women who work in an upscale brothel in Sydney.

    Pet peeves? Poor grammar. Leaving empty shampoo/conditioner bottles in the shower. Leaving hair in the drain. People who talk about "OMG HOW WASTED THEY GOT" the previous weekend.

    Job you would LOVE: I'd love to be a novelist. I'd also love Samantha Brown's job. I get my own show about vacations in Europe? Yes please!

    Job you would HATE: Anythiing that involves sitting at a desk for eight hours.

    How do you feel about St. Patrick's Day? I'm Norwegian. I'll take eating deep-fried butter on Syttende Mai over drinking green beer any day :)
