Hooo are you #21


1. What is the most physically painful thing that has ever happened to you?
I would have to say a herniated disk. I didn't have surgery for it either, so this is one injury that continues to give me trouble if I don't keep my back strengthened (one reason I work out as much as I do).  If you have never had a herniated disk, it is the worst pain I have ever felt (worse than my heal fracture and that was (and still is) painful.   I went from running 40 min one day, to waking up with a hurt back and being able to walk for a max of 5 min.  It took me almost 2 years to be able to run with no back pain.  It took almost 1 year to be able to sleep with little to no pain.

2. What would you name your next child or if you don't have any your first child?
My favorite girls name was Isabella or Jordan Isabella.  However, due to Twilight, I think Isabella is going to be way to common and won't use it for a kids name anymore.  I still love Jordan for a girl.  My favorite guys name is Jackson. 

3. If you could add one feature to your car, what would you choose?
I wish I had heated seats.  Or a button to open my trunk on my keychain. or remote start.  Oh wait..you only wanted one feature? 

4. If you named your house (or car or computer) what would you name it?
I find myself calling my car zoom zoom, because it's a Mazda, and I'm (insert sarcasm) incredibly creative when it comes to names.  

5. What is your dream occupation?
My dream job, and one that I don't see ever happening because of the huge bookstores in my town, is to own a bookstore that only sells mysteries.  (Ok..there is one of these in my town but I don't like it and never shop there).  I have a name for it, I have ideas for what I would do with it (including an annual Halloween party where you come dressed as your favorite mystery book character).  I've written down everything I've come up with for this store, but alas, it's only a dream.  I just don't think it would ever make any money, not with Borders and Barnes and Noble all over STL. 


  1. What a fun dream job! I enjoyed reading your responses and thanks for linking up to Hoo are you!

  2. OMGosh, I love your bookstore idea!!

  3. Leslie & Jen - thanks..it is a great idea isn't it? I wish I could pull it off, I just don't see it doing well and I don't have the start up funds. Maybe one day though.
