Holy crap. I think this is my third post today! Guess I'm making up for the rest of this week!

1. If you were given $1,000,000 that you had to spend ONLY ON would you spend the money?

Travel, like to Europe and Africa.
Shoes (who wouldn't, really?)
Expensive makeup (as if I didn't have enough already)
Jewelry (I likes me some bling)
Electrolysis so I would never have to wax between my eyebrows again.

2. Who would you say is the one person that's had the most influence on your life? By that, I mean the person that has molded you in to the person you are today?

Hands down, my mom. So obvious, I know, but it is what it is. I still talk to her every day on my way home from work. We are very different, but I think that's why it works (besides the mother/daughter connection). My mom is one of those people that everyone wants advice from. She's level-headed, smart, and gets tipsy off one little glass of wine. She's the best.

Aside from that, I have a very good friend that had really pushed me to become my own person, challenged me to think for myself. Despite that, she's one person who has always love me, as she would say, "warts and all." She's one of my soul-mates, and I know I would not be the same person without having known her.

3. What is your normal morning routine? Are you a bear in the morning, or is the morning your favorite part of the day?

I am the consummate morning person. I annoy people, especially my husband. Kids want to wake up at 5:30? Whatev, let's do this thing. Boxing class at 5am? I'm there. I don't even need coffee. Bam!

4. If you're a Facebook and Twitter user, which do you prefer and why? If you're just a Facebook user, what do you think of the new changes? 

I have never gotten into Twitter, though my husband thinks I should pimp my blog on it. I really just don't care that much to attract more people. It's not like I'm trying to make money or something. There are a few feeds I follow, but they stream into my google reader, so it's hard to even remember that they're coming from Twitter, except for the fact that they are always very short posts.

I much prefer Facebook, and while I was a little annoyed at the changes, some of it is growing on me. I like the option to "Unsubscribe" from certain people, and I have most definitely taken advantage of that. None of you lovelies, of course. 

5.  Repeat was your week in real life and in blog land this week? 

Real life: back to work, back to reality. Still trying to kick my cold, and not having much luck. I coughed about thirty times just while I was typing this.
Blog land: I mean to post more, but well, you know how that goes. I'm very glad Ronnie posted some of my Chicago pics because I am just too damn lazy to do it myself.

I wish I could be like you in the mornings. I'm just so crabbypants.
