It’s Friday again!  Hurray!  My husband is coming home today after being gone for two weeks, so that makes it an especially good Friday.  So here are the 5 questions to learn a little about me

1. Can you drive a stick shift?  
Yes!  I actually prefer driving a standard, although my present car is an automatic.  First one I’ve had since college that wasn’t a stick.  I really do miss it!   
 
2. What are two foods you just can’t eat?  
 
Cow in any form – I haven’t eaten red meat since high school sometime.  Although I can tolerate taking a bite of chicken every now and then, red meat just totally grosses me out.
 
Southern style greens – For years, I thought I hated greens.  And then one day I discovered that it’s the cooking method that turned them into a mushy slimy smelly mess that I hated.  Now I eat greens all of the time – quickly sauteed in garlic and EVOO, or thrown into soups and chilis.  I never knew what I was missing!  
 
3. Do you buy Girl Scout Cookies? What is your favorite kind?
Even though I once was a Girl Scout, I don’t buy the cookies very often.  We aren’t big sweet eaters in this house, so they’d end up lost and forgotten, so I leave them for the people who have genuine love for them.  I used to love samosas, but they changed the recipe on me and they aren’t the same!  
 
4. How do you pamper yourself?  I don’t.  I should, but I don’t.  My husband is gone a lot, which leaves me with the munchkin most of the time – and on my days off I tend to spend them cleaning and catching up on my blog and stuff like that.  So other than a glass of wine at night after the munchkin is in bed, there isn’t much pampering!
 
5. What is your nickname and how did you get it?  When I was in high school a lot of people called me Little O – that’s the only nickname I’ve ever had! My best friend gave it to me because I was pretty tiny in high school and my last name started with an “O”.  I think I’m just not a nickname kind of person!
