Tell Me Thursday! On Friday! Oh well!

I was sue me :)

1. What are you thankful for this week?

I'm thankful for good friends...without them, I'm not sure what I would do!!!!! I'm thankful for Bacon, yes bacon, I love it's yummy goodness. I'm thankful my building so I don't have to stand in the rain/wind/snow this winter.

2. How do you deal with a sqeaker/shrieker/noisy dog?
Beat them...just kidding :) I try not to let them develop into that to begin with. I usually just tell them to knock it off...and reward for being quiet. Does it always my dogs bark when I am running another dog, yes. How do I stop that? Not sure...I've given up :)

3. Barbara wants to know: what would you say is ONE skill or attribute needed to be successful?

NOT AFRAID OF FAILURE---laugh at yourself, realize you're gonna suck sometimes, and learn from failure. Failure is JUST FEEDBACK. Move on, try harder and don't be afraid of falling on your face. It's gonna happen. That's OK :)

4. Pippin wants to know: what are your favorite games?, I play the Wii...not into board games it's ok...probably Paintball is my favorite game, fast, lots of action and you can cause pain :) Mwahahahahahaha!!!!

5. What are some of your strategies for dealing with winter?

HAHAHAHA!!!!!!! What DON'T I do?!?!?!

Lets see...heater in bathroom when I am showering, electric blankets are like tribbles on Star Trek...they're everywhere...I wish they would breed honestly. I can always use more because, believe it or not, I burn out at least one blanket each winter. LAYERS upon LAYERS of clothing...always. I wish we had a fireplace...damn.

Lots of hot tea (I hate coffee)...LOTS OF HOT TEA. And my newest thing? A heated jacket...has a rechargeable's LOVELY. I want a full heated body suit now...

And of course....I just try not to go out in the cold if I can...I hate the cold!!!!!! YUCK!!!!!!!!!!!

But those things help me deal with it better :)

Oh man, congratulations on your new building! I kept meaning to come reply on one of your posts about it - I'm stoked for you! Really, really nice.

I've always wanted to play paintball. Hm. I understand there's a place near me that does it. Might have to try it out.

Somehow it makes me feel better that I'm not the only one with an electric blanket fetish. :)

Okay, you need to share where to get a heated jacket, because that sounds like just the thing for winter trialing.

I've never heard of a heated jacket but it sounds wonderful! By the way - you and your dogs were amazing at Cynosports - congratulations!!! And congratulations to Andy and Crackers for making it on the IFCS team!!!
