5 Question Friday

Well, I would love to be all bubbly and sarcastic today, but alas, I have a cold, allergy, sinus thing going on that is annoying/pissing me off. So instead I'm going to be rambly and probably whiny.

No big plans this weekend, except homework (and pimping out my totally awesome digital scrapbooking giveaway). If you haven't already go enter. Hurry!

Sometimes I have missed homework and other times, well, not so much. It's kinda like an ex - you have fond memories and feelings for them, and other times you would like to have the ability to grind them into a greasy little pulp and walk away.

Note to self: no more cold meds.

1. Do you swim in the winter?

I would gladly swim year round. Just give me an indoor pool. Notice I said give. I love to swim. Love it. I suck at it, but I love it. All that water, it's just so relaxing and soothing. And totally fun.

Outside - do the words not a chance in hell mean anything to you?!?!  I don't do anything outside during the winter. I would prefer tunnels to get me from my front door to my truck or wherever else it is that I'm going. If I lived somewhere were it was like 90 during the winter. You bet.

2. Do you love or hate winter?

Define hate. If we could skip it, it wouldn't hurt my feelings at all. I like snow, and I'm good with like a week of winter, but after that, please transport me to spring like temperatures. 80's in the afternoon, and well, we can have the lows slightly cooler. But otherwise, I wouldn't complain if the earth jumped on it's axis and we just skipped over it every year.

3. Do you put makeup/actual clothes on when you know you're going to be home all day with just family?

Nope. My husband has seen me when I have to get up and be human on very little sleep. I figure that I was scarier then than I am after a shower, so he usually doesn't get the makeup and fussiness that I usually go through when we are just hanging out at home. And depending on any surprise activities as to whether those people get the makeup and good clothes or not. Usually it's not.

4. How old were you when you had your first alcoholic beverage?

See, right about now all of you moms out there are going to groan. Loudly and tell my mom what a complete goober she was. But - her theory worked.

See my mom actually would buy alcohol for me to try. Her theory was that she would rather I try it at home than feel the need to experiment with my friends and get in way over my head. Thus taking away the need to "sneak" around. Now, out in public, no, she wouldn't buy me a drink. But I've tasted of hers for as long as I could remember. And if there was ever anything I wanted to try, she would get it.

Now, I can count on one hand the number of alcoholic beverages that I've had in the last 2 years. I don't know if her theory continues to work, but it's just not a big deal to me to have it.

5. How many ill calls in a 12 month period do you think are acceptable?
See, and I hate to even comment on this question. I have worked at my current job for almost 3 years. I've called in sick twice.
As long as you can do your job the way it needs to be done, and your not calling in every week, then just go with it.
But....there are these people who call in every couple of weeks and those drive me crazy. I have always tried to only call in when I was seriously sick, or when I completely and totally just needed a day off. It's always worked for me. But if I had to pick a number, I would say that if you work 40+ hours per week, that you should get 1ish per month. That doesn't mean that every 3rd Friday you should call in sick, but you should at least get 10-12 per year with no questions asked.
Have a happy Friday!
