Five Question Friday - September 21, 2012

 
 
1. What is one grammar issue you cannot let go without correction?
 
Oh no... Only one?  I am what some people call a "grammar nazi"...  and I hate to use THAT n word. ;)  
 
My husband is not a native English speaker, so I'm after him constantly for verb tenses, double negatives (though he doesn't make that mistake as much), and word pronunciation.
 
Everyone else??  DOUBLE NEGATIVES!  Oh Lord!!  They make me crazy.  I know it's an unconscious thing, especially if people grow up with it in their homes, and that's not their fault. I understand..... but my opinion of someone falls just a little when I hear them.  So Sorry!!!!!   

2. What's your favorite thing about fall?
 
My absolute favorite thing about fall is the cool temperatures!!!  I love it when it gets cooler, and I can have the windows open, and the cool breezes blowing.  Love it!!

3. What's your favorite dish to take to a potluck?  
 
Taco Dip!!  So easy, takes a little preparation, and addicting!  So so good. :) 

4. When do you start Christmas (Holiday) shopping? 

I very much wish I was like my Mom who shops year-round.  I usually shop October - mid-December, and make lots of gifts myself. (Look around this blog...)

5. Did you move homes a lot growing up?
 
No!  My parents bought the house they still live in when I was 2, and I lived in it until I went away to college....  as an adult, I've moved A LOT!!!!!  So much more than I've ever wanted to... but always for very good reasons.
I still don't feel like I'm in the last place I'll live, so more moving coming sometime.
 
I grew up in Wisconsin, and then as an adult:
1.  South Texas - 16 years
2.  Houston - 2 years (I really LOVED it there!!!!!)
3.  One OK city 3 years
4.  another OK city 3 years.
5.  ready to move to the "last" place soon!!! Back to Texas if I get my choice.
I always wanted one of those bumper stickers:

I didn't grow up in Texas, but I got here as quick as I could!
**That is totally me!!
