It’s Friday and that means it’s time for BYOC! Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer 5 questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break.

1. Name a Valentine gift you would NOT want to receive.
An adding machine. I know this because that is what The Rockstar gave me 14 years ago for VD. I was a math teacher at the time, so in his mind it was a very useful and thoughtful gift. I have not let him live that down in 14 years....and probably won't ever.

2. What’s your vacation personality? Do you act/eat/talk/do things differently or completely opposite from when you are not on vacation?

I don't want to be on any kind of time schedule when I am on vacation. If I am driving (rather than flying) I stop whenever I feel like stopping...again , no kinda time schedule. I also eat whatever I want when I am on vacation. I am a picky eater, so I can't say that I get adventurous and try new things to eat...cause I almost never do that. I certainly don't talk any different...I couldn't get rid of this southern twang if I tried.

3. Describe yourself in 5 POSITIVE words.
Open minded (I guess that counts as two words??)

4. Do you have any phobias or irrational fears or dislikes?
I am crazy scared of the dentist, the dark, and bugs/spiders. I also dislike green foods.

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blog land and in real life.

I haven't been reading as many blogs this week because I have been busy at work and haven't had much time to be on my phone. I try to catch up on them when I get home, but that doesn't always go so well.

Real life has been exciting. I officially accepted the new job and submitted my resignation today. I am required to give a 30 day notice (or they could have my teaching license suspended) so my last day will be March 9th (because the 30th day falls on a Sunday. I will start the new position on March 12th.

Congrats on the job. I really hope it is a less stressful environment for you. Um, seriously, on the twang! I know we have never actually talked to each other but I am right there with you. My get teased about my accent by other Southerners. Its one of the reasons I haven't done a video blog yet -- no one one would hear a thing I say bc they would be too busy laughing at my accent.
