WWTKW: A mish-mash.

Holy poor little abandoned blog… Was it really just a few weeks ago that I promised to be a better blog pal?  I really shouldn’t have made such a promise just before going on vacation.

I have so much to recap for you – my 30th, my vacation, my current fitness successes & goals…

But unfortunately, I’m still playing catch-up at work after returning from my holidays, and I have.no.time

So instead, how about a quick We Want to Know Wednesday post until I can get my thoughts together?

Linking up with Kenzie & Scriptor!

Here are my answers to this week’s questions:

1. Which actress would you choose to play you in a movie?  I’ve been asked this before, and I struggle with an answer.  But I always end up picking the same actress:  Katherine Heigl.  And the reason?  Back when I used to take Karate, a little girl in the class once told me I looked like Izzie from Grey’s Anatomy.  I don’t happen to think I look anything like her, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a teensy bit flattered.  ;)  I’m pretty sure it was just the way I had my hair up or something, but I thanked that kid profusely!! hahaha!!

2. Would you rather drink Coke or Pepsi?  Pepsi.  Diet, please.  I know, it’s bad for me, it has aspartame.  But I prefer the taste of Diet Pepsi.  For the past seven months, I haven’t had much of it anyways – only when eating out do I order it, I don’t buy it for home anymore, so I allow myself the aspartame treat once in a while. ;)

3. Is there anything you are looking forward to this month? August seems to be a bit quieter month in comparison to June & July, but I am looking forward to our Canada Day Committee wrap party this coming Saturday!  :)  Shawville Fair is also on the horizon, starting in late August, and I’m super-pumped to see Dallas Smith perform again.  Can’t wait!!

4. Would you rather have a cat or a dog?  If I had to pick… a dog.  I’m kind of allergic to cats, so they’re a no-go.  I go through phases where I really want a dog, but thank goodness I haven’t yet made that impulse purchase, because the urge usually passes within a few days.  I tend to forget how much work they are – and how much they cost – so when I’m reminded of that, the desire quickly fades!!!

puggle If I WAS getting a puppy though… it would have to be a puggle.  Soooo cute…

5. What is something you feel strongly about? Lately, I feel strongly about the importance of working hard to make positive changes.  It’s easy to sit back, bitch & moan about what we don’t have, blame things on other people, and be miserable.  But it’s all on us to make the changes necessary to be happier, feel better, and/or take pride in what surrounds us.  “Be the change you want  to see in the world.” Yep, I just threw a Gandhi quote out there.  Cliché?  Perhaps.  Even sillier because it makes me think of Michael Scofield?  Definitely.  But it is one that really resonates with me.

That puppy is so cute. Would never fly at our house--too small.
I've cut back on my aspartame intake as well. I love the crystal light to go packs, but they are high is the devil chemical. Water it is for me.

aww...Michael Scofield...

I much prefer Diet anything to regular pop! I find the regular sugar one makes me have a sugar buzz!

Glad to see you are back on the blog! xo

I agree about the taste of Diet is better than regular. even if I didn't need to watch my calories, I would still pick Diet. It just tastes better!

Happy belated 30th!! I hope it was awesome. Mine is next month, ack!
I loved Katherine heigl when greys anatomy first started, and was a far better show. Great compliment from that kid!

Dog people are the best. And I am pretty sure that Diet Cherry Pepsi runs through my veins...

One of my favourite quotes, thanks. I have missed your blog, glad you are writing again.

It always take me a little bit to come up with an answer to which actress I would want to play me too.
So far we are 3 for 3 when it comes to Pepsi being the favorite ha ha!
That puppy is too cute! But, dogs are a lot of work. We have two and they keep us very busy.
Thanks for linking up with us :D
