We all know that your blog readership goes down on the weekends, so why waste a thoughtful, well-written post on a Saturday or Sunday when most people won't read it? Instead, take a day off and answer the following questions. Add your blog post URL to the McLinky at the bottom so we can all learn some fun about each other :)

1. How old do you look?

I have been told many times that I look "so young". I was even recently carded for buying a candle lighter at the grocery store. So, apparently I don't even look 18! When I was in college doing a pre-internship, I had a parent ask me what grade I was in. I was like, "Um.. I'm in college and I'm teaching your child."

2. Where do you live?

Maryland, but who knows what the future might bring!

3. Are you waiting for something?

Nothing in particular. Well, I guess that's not true.. I'm waiting for the Olympics to come back on at 8:00pm!

4. What’s one pet peeve of yours that is not common?

I don't like the toilet paper being fed from the bottom. It also drives me crazy when people are Darth Vader breathers. You know, audible breathing.

5. Do you want/have kids?

I have a classroom full of them! I would love to have a child of my own someday, if it's meant to be for me.

6. Have you ever thought about converting your religion?

I'm not a deeply religious person.

7. Last shocking news you heard?

The sound of a baby crying over the baby monitor. I'm currently babysitting and it was a shocking sound when you're not used to it!

8. What was the last thing you drank?

Coke. You all know me, I'm not a Coke fan. It was all they had.

9. Who do you most look like in your family?

Ha! That's an easy one. Grandma. It's amazing how similar we look. I came across an old photo of a baby and the only way you know it was her was because it was in black and white.
10. If you could have something right now, anything, what would it be?

Hmm.. I can't think of anything other than a Starbuck's Peppermint Mocha. Now that? That's true love.

11. Where does most of your family live?

The mitten state-- Michigan.

12. Where did you grow up?

Kalamazoo, MI area

13. Where do you want to go on vacation?

My dream vacation would be Greece.

14. Have you ever had a panic attack?

Yes. It's not a good feeling. You feel like you just might be dying.

15. What can’t you wait for?

I can't wait for Spring! I'm pretty tired of all this snow.

16. Have you ever smoked?

Yup. Sorry Mom.

17. Want someone back in your life?

My grandfather. I was the apple of his eye...

18. What do you order at the bar?

Depends.. usually a beer of some sort if I'm at a bar. At dinner, a nice glass of white wine.

19. When was the last time you cried really, really hard?

About 3 months ago, when we made the decision to separate/divorce.

20. Ever licked someone’s cheek?

Yeah, only because I was being silly.

21. What is your favorite thing to eat with peanut butter?

Apples or celery. Mmmm...

22. Where were you on July 4th, 2008?

In Maryland. Probably debating whether or not to go down to the National Mall to watch the fireworks.

23. What are your nicknames?

My childhood nickname is Re. I couldn't say Lori, so I always said ReRe. It was shortened to Re. However, there are only 3 people allowed to call me Re: Mom, Dad, and my brother. Other nicknames include:  Lo, Lor and P-Lo (my maiden name began with a P).

24. If you could go back in time, how far back would you go?

I would go back to college, just to have one more day in college. I loved college!

25. What is something you are passionate about?

I am passionate about education and people with disabilities.

Lol...It so true. I always wait and post awards and silly stuff on the weekend because hardly anybody reads. If I have something important to say I wait till Monday or Tuesday.
