The Rules: Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog. Share 5 random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog or blah, blah, blah.....who really reads this part anyway.

Random/Weird facts about me:

1. This is why I can not bring myself to cook out of my new Deceptively Delicious cookbook:

I just can't stomach the thought of coating my chicken strips or mixing my pancakes with this.

2. I just realized that the top heating element on my oven has been out for the past 2 1/2 years - that is how much I cook (Could someone remind me why I had to have the aforementioned cookbook?).

3. I use parentheses way too much (I can't help it, I love them).

4. I love throwing things away. I've been known to throw away gift sacks and books (gasp).

5. My pet peeve is when people say I's. There is no such word. "Andy and I's" doesn't make any sense. It is supposed to be "Andy's and my." Think about it people. I will issue a disclaimer here and say that I am by no means a grammar expert. Andy reminds me fairly often that this is just the one rule I happen to know so I like to flaunt it. He happens to be correct.

I am just amazed at seeing the green on Bode's face. Aidan physically rejects all green food. I got the cookbook too. I anticipate using it when I am done with grad school or possibly when Aidan graduates high school.

I get annoyed when people say "can I...." instead of "May I..."! I have the deceptively delicious book and all the purees made, but I've only made one recipe! If you want some puree's, let me know!

I have 2 1/2 burners out on my stove. Rather than fixing them I just keep using the 1 1/2 that does work. Not the most convenient thing ever.

I don't think I have ever heard anyone say I's, though I am sure it would bother me if I did.

The gift sacks, I understand. But books, Summer? I'm horrified.
