4. The rest of my life I've lived in the Twin Cities, MN

4 Places I've Visited

1. In high school I visited New York City with my parents and sister. It was part of a trip to the East Coast. I really want to go back again with my family.
2. We also visited Banff in Canada. What a beautiful place, and another I would like to revisit.
3. I went to Washington, DC twice. Once on the trip in high school, and again in the late 90s as part of a business trip.

4 Wacky or Odd Things About Me

1. When I get hot, my ears get bright red! It started in my 30s, and I have no idea what causes it!
2. I hate to watch a character in a tv show or movie go through something really embarrassing. It makes me uncomfortable.

4. I tried to make a daddy long legs spider my pet when I was little.

4 Pet Peeves

1. People who are late.
2. People who pee on the toilet seat in public bathrooms, yuk!!!!! Just sit down for pete sake!
3. Narrow minded or judgemental people.
4. People who don't use their turn signals. Do they not know what they are for?

I won't tag anyone, but feel free to try this. It's pretty fun!

Bye for now!

So fun to learn more about you, lovely Laurie. It's awesome that you were able to visit Canada and see Banff. The Rockies are truly an out-of-this-world gorgeous part of the world. I really hope you're able to make it back there (and/or anywhere else you'd like to see on this side of the 49th) again.

Big hugs,
♥ Jessica

*PS* I feel the same way with most uncomfortable/embarrassing scenarios in shows and movies, too.

Laurie Duncan said...

Thanks Olga! Yes, it is such a good show! :)

Thanks Lindsey! I really loved living in Wisconsin, but if I hadn't moved back to Minneapolis I wouldn't have met my husband. :)
