Still time to join my newsletter Yahoo Group (see the sidebar) and be in the drawing for one of three $10 gift certificates from Amazon or Barnes & Noble!

Haven't done a Meme in awhile, so here's one compliments of my friend Piowa Puff.

Do you make friends easily?
Yes, I'm an EXTROVERT (big surprise -- NOT!)

Now it's your turn! Tell me some useless pieces of trivia about YOU!


terrio said...

What fun facts! LOL! I'm with you on the extrovert stuff but it's actually never helped me make friends? I make more acquaintances.

I used to be a night person, then liked the mornings better, now I'm good for about 15 mins in the afternoon. Other than that, you're out of luck.

The next day I'm looking forward to is May 6th when I'm headed to the Outer Banks for four days of relaxation. Then it's the end of June when school will be OVER and softball will be OVER and I won't know what to do with all my free time! LOL!

Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

ROFLOL Terrio!

I'm best in the afternoon too, for at least an hour or so... If the weather is nice... :-P

OOO! Can I go with you to the Outer Banks?!?! I've only been there once, and it was right after a hurricane had torn everything up pretty badly. I'd love to go back!

And YAY YOU! For sticking it out and FINISHING UP SCHOOL! And I know exactly what you need to do with that free time, Missy... There's this story you have started... AHEM!


terrio said...

I forgot to add "if the weather is nice." That is such a true statement.

We'd be more than happy to have you! The first time I saw the Outer Banks was right after Hurricane Isabel came through and I was amazed at the sand drifts as high as the street signs. It looks much better with everything settled back down.

And you better believe that's what I'll be doing with my free time. I'm actually *really* excited to hit the writing full-time. But until then, these last two classes are kicking my arse! LOL!

Jane said...

I was shocked to learn you're an extrovert. You had me fooled.

My favorite tv show right now is "Life." I heart Damian Lewis. Favorite soft drink is Coke. Favorite flower is the tulip.

Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

OMG! I was there after Hurricane Isabel too! Just think, we might have actually seen each other and didn't know it.

Sending lots of positive thoughts so YOU can kick those classes in their collective arses.


Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

All right, Jane, enough with the sarcasm. :-P

I've actually seen a few episodes of Life too and I loved how quirky Damian Lewis' character is! Then they had to go and put it on opposite "Lost" and of course Aunty the techno-dummy does not own a Tivo. At least I'll have something to watch during rerun season.

terrio said...

No way! How crazy. Did you do The Wright Brothers museum on that trip? I might have passed you walking up the hill!

Helen said...

Hi Aunty Cindy

I do love your answers you have such a wonderful personality.
Only 129 days to go YAY it is getting closer

Have Fun

Casablanca said...

YES! We did go to the Wright Bros. Momument! I have piccies of the DH and I standing out in the field where they have the maker of the length of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd flights. OMG! I better dig those pics out and see if YOU are in the background anywhere!

Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

Sorry, that last post was me, but I forgot and was checking the Casablanca Authors' email. :-)
