Okay so here are the 11 Random Things About Me (albeit some of them are just plain weird).
1. I love poltics. So as you can imagine the 2012 election hoopla is my bowl of cherries--not really, but it's fun. I love watching debates, because I like looking for inconsistancies, flip-flopping and logical fallacies--and then pointing them out...
2. My brother says I should be a politician.
3. I like using the word bloviate in a sentence. Like that one. Here's a hint: It's an especially handy word this year with all the political hoopla going on.
4. I like British TV way more than American TV. Think BBC dramas.
5. I love candles
6. I'm passionate about Creation Ministries like Answers in Genesis.
7. I like making casseroles.
8. I have a perfect little pinto pony, who is named Alyssa Tissa Princessa.
9. I strongly dislike the gummy bear song. My brother and his best friend inflicted it upon me against my will...It was bad.
10. I'm the secretary in my local 4-H Club.
11. I'm going to be old enough to vote in this year's general election. Yay!
Abbi's Questions & My Answers
1. Indoors or Outdoors?
Indoors, mainly because it's winter and really cold outside!
2. What is your biggest pet peeve?
Around this time of year when the political fever is high, and we are exposed to a ridiculous amount of negative media. I don't like the TV telling me how to vote. Click for a video I find amusing. But then I don't watch TV much in the first place. lol.
3. When you die what is the one thing you most want to be remembered for?
Being a good Christian witness. Someone who thought of others first.
4. On a plane, do you like the aisle, middle, or window seat? Why?
Window! I don't fly much, so I like to make the most of it :)
5. Paperback, Hardback, or ebook?
If hardcover is an option, then hardcover! Makes books stand up under wear and tear better.
6. If you could meet one person, living, dead, or fictional, who would it be and why?
Jesus Christ, to throw my self at His feet a worship Him. But if I can't say that, then I would say John Quincy Adams, and thank him for his wonderful service as President and for serving in congress, pushing for an end to slavery.
