I'm It!

I've been enjoying seeing this tagging going around my Google Reader, and I was finally "caught" by Mrs. TDJ!

Here are the rules:
  • You must post 11 random things about yourself.
  • Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post.
  • Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer (Mrs. TDJ only has 5 for me!).
  • Go to their blog and tell them that you’ve tagged them. 
Random Things About Me: 
1. I can't stand for the food on my plate to touch; yes, I know it all goes to the same place but something about it weirds me out.  
2. I've ran up the down escalator once when I was late for a school function at night. It was really embarrassing, but I was desperate.  I've vowed never to do this again however I've been tempted to. 
3. At this point in my life I have no desire for Baby #2. When I was planning out my future I thought I would by now but nope, I don't. 
4. Las Vegas is my #1 favorite vacation destination. 
5. I've been to 4 out of 7 continents (S. America, Antarctica and Australia left to go).  
6. I'm the oldest of 4 children (there's an 8, 10 and 12 year age gap between me and my siblings).
7. I used to play lacrosse in high school. 
8. I know better than to ever eat blue ice cream again after a really bad bathroom incident in college (no more to say about that). 
9. When I worked in advertising I took a cross-country trip via Amtrak, one of my clients, from Chicago to Los Angeles. It's a trip I'd like to someday repeat with the rest of the Love Birds. 
10. I lived in CT when I was 3 years old but moved back to Ohio, where I was born, in time to start kindergarten. 
11. My all time favorite movie is Coming to America.  

Mrs. TDJ's Questions for Me:
  1. If you could only listen to one musical artist for the rest of your life, who would you choose? Stevie Wonder hands down!
  2. Which do you prefer: red or white wine?  What’s your favorite wine? I don't drink.
  3. Describe something related to eating/food that you do that others might find strange. I guess I kinda disclosed a weird thing in #1, but another oddity is that I prefer to dip my french fries in my Frosty when I go to Wendy's. Tastes SO good!
  4. On average, how many texts do you send and receive in a day? Maybe 50.
  5. Name someone who passed away in the last ten years that you would have liked to have met.  What would you have discussed? Michael Jackson. I actually got this question at a Toastmasters meeting and I said the same thing! I would ask him about the pressure he felt being a pop star and what he wished people really knew about him. Oh! And I wouldn't leave until he taught me how to moonwalk effortlessly. 
My Questions for the 5 Bloggers I'm Tagging:

1.  Did you watch the Super Bowl? If yes, did your team win? If no, what were you doing instead?
2. If you could be a female pop star which one would you be and why?
3. If you weren't doing your current job/role what else could you imagine yourself doing?
4. What's the last great book you read?
5. Share an interesting dream you've had. 
6. What's your favorite restaurant and when you go what do you order?
7. What part of your home do you hate to clean?
8. Are you a fan of Valentine's Day? Why or why not?
9. What grade of elementary school was your favorite and why?
10. What's the next vacation destination you'd love to go to?
11. What made you smile today?
