Tell Me Thursday 2012 - #15

Okay - it's Thursday and Laura over at Crooks and Crazies is back with Tell Me Thursday!

I've missed a couple so maybe some day I'll go back and pick up the ones I missed. But now onto the questions for this week:

1. Are you a morning person? A night owl? Do you pop up out of bed full of song and happiness? Do you just hit your stride after dark?

It really depends on what's going on for the day. If it's a work day, then I'm not so much of a morning person. But if it's a trial or I have agility practice or a morning workout then I have no problem getting up early :) And I'm also a night owl depending on how much I did during the day. I tend to cram in too much during the week so by the time it hits 10 pm I'm pretty tired but I can sometimes manage to stay up to watch some trashy television or some cheesy sci-fi movie. 

2. What is your favorite candy?

Lately it's been Red Vines. I like to leave them in the car when it's warm outside and then eat them when they are nice and soft. But since I'm on a diet I really haven't had that much candy. I've decided candy is like crack - if it's in the house all I do is constantly think about it until I eat all of it. One time I made my husband hide it and told him to only give me one piece. Then I totally begged him to go get me one more so I could find out where he stashed it. Yep. I'm a total addict!

Oh... and a co-worker gave me a bar of Lindt milk chocolate filled with cognac! And I'm not talking about cognac flavored filling. No way, this sucker has a mini shot inside in piece - totally gives you a little buzz (or more, depending on how many pieces you eat). I think you can only buy them in Texas so we have to import them from Germany. I have it on my desk and have a piece when I first get in in the morning.  

3. What is your biggest driving pet peeve?

TN drivers. I don't know what it is with them - either they are just super rude or totally out of it. No turn signals, no checking to see if there is a car in the other lane before they switch lanes, constant tailgating - a cop was tailgating me and I was going 15 over the speed limit!! Oh yeah, and the idiots don't wear seat belts. I got into a wreck in TN once and they gave me a 'Saved By the Belt' award - they even had a ceremony for it and we got free lunch. Please people - just wear your set belts!! 

4. How do you prepare yourself and your dogs for summer?

I can't stand the cold so I love summer. I really don't mind the heat - just sometimes if it's 100 with 100% humidity - that gets to be a little bit too much. But I love wearing cute summer clothes. My dogs - not big fans of summer. So we take early morning and late evening walks. They also have cool coats to walk in. And we have a treadmill and some agility stuff in the basement to tire them out when it's just too hot outside. 

5. Lets talk about grass in your dog yard. Do you have any? How much maintenance do you do?

I don't do anything to the yard. Basically I just try to ignore that jungle of green stuff. I don't think there is really that much grass out there. I've seen lots of clovers out there and some other green non-grass stuff. We keep it mowed so that at a distance it sort of resembles grass. But it's your typical east TN yard - huge hill! You can see it here:


  1. I think I would go nuts in TN - but hey I could go for a free lunch!! LOL

  2. OMG, I'd be SO trashed on that candy. LOL! That video absolutely made my night. I'm not sure I've seen anything as cute as your dogs running like that.


I love comments - so please leave some :)
