I spent 48 years caring about what people thought of me. I'm not spending the rest of my life caring about that anymore!

Seven Things You Never Knew About Me

Jeni's given me a task to give seven facts about my life. I'm supposed to tag seven others but I'll just leave it up to you to decide if you want to play. So, without further ado:

1. When I turned 30 I went to Paris alone because I couldn't find anyone to go with me. I was befriended by a group of Phillipinos who took me around with them for the whole week. I still keep in touch with at least two of them 12 years later.

2. I am a germaphobe. I don't shake hands with people, I won't allow anyone to use my writing pens, I swab my keyboards each day w/a cleansing wipe.

3. I hate my job.

4. I seldom go to the movies. Maybe once a year.

5. I do not rent movies.

6. I watch about four hours of television a week (Smackdown, MadTV, Frontline).

7. I'm very frugal (no pedicures, new shoes, new clothes) but will spend $15 dollars for lip gloss or $500 for a purse. Hey, a girl's gotta have her priorities.

Since I really disliked - immensely- one job I had during my work life (ok, actually there were three jobs I had that I really hated) -what is it about your job that creates that animosity within you for yours? Just curious there as to qualities that people hate in a work environment and ones they like. (My jobs that I disliked - 1. Packer in a cigar factory; 2. fingerprint technician for a VERY large government agency; 3. asst. manager of a truckstop restaurant.
