  • Blogging can be a hobby :-)

    How come I never get tagged?! Oh, right. I only have a few blog friends! :-)

  • you hate ignorance??... i don't think we could be friends then....

    how come you didn't tag anyone back ??? (not that i'm asking for it..., cuz some of these questions frighten me...)

    By Blogger totolehero, at 11:34 AM  

  • Yeah blogging is a hobby! You should include that. A trip to the Meditteranean is a must:-) Greek hospitalilty is great!

  • You went to Florida an Illonois in the last 11 days?! That's gotta be some job you've got.

    By Blogger Gyrobo, at 1:16 PM  

  • Hey, I count change because I'm thrifty! I also don't want to carry around $27 worth of change in my purse ;)

    I liked being tagged--otherwise, I'd have nothing to post on my blog :)

  • **Sharks scare me too.
    **I still have the same 2 fears you have overcome.
    **I love both of the same movies of this year.
    **hmmmm....things you hate (a little ironic don't you think;)
    **Medical school ~ that is a lot to be proud of.
    **I have always wanted to go to Italy.
    **I think you seem very friendly.
    **I do the same 2 things you wouldn't admit.

  • i q-tip too. too much though. sometimes nmore than once a day.

    By Blogger cher, at 2:15 PM  

  • Tagged?

    Horrifying! ; )

    By Blogger Chick, at 2:18 PM  

  • These are some great questions!

    I'm afraid of the dark sometimes, too.
    My biggest fear is not being able to see if I'm walking into a dangling spider, rolling over and a spider being on my pillow, a spider on the toilet seat....

  • 5. The media's coverage of any Hollywood break-up

    This one always drives me crazy. The sad thing is that shows like ET and Inside edition have dumbed-down the normal news so that they feel (local and national) that we really want to see this stuff...and the sad part of it is that many people do.

    By Blogger zippyjake, at 4:08 PM  

  • I'm all for long-term relationships. But sometimes I think they don't fit the times. I mean, look at the success ratio these days.
    They made more sense even one hundred years ago. But now, we have longer life spans...

    By Blogger Eric, at 4:55 PM  

  • As always a little more insight into the 'real' angel :-)

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 5:12 PM  

  • You hate ignorance ??

    Me too !

    I'm only ever ignorant to people I don't know.

    It's sad. We never get to hear of any of the Hollywood break ups in England.

    By Blogger Ben Heller, at 6:35 PM  

  • Continue scratching. You are making the male race very proud.

    By Blogger mrshife, at 6:39 PM  

  • Missy: I tagged you.

    and "Scratching my crotch and forgetting that I'm in public when I do it." = that's nasty angel.

    By Blogger Anhoni Patel, at 7:03 PM  

  • It's so fun reading these tags even though they can be annoying to write out. We all enjoy reading more about our blog friends. As far as the fear of long term commitment; don't be; dive in; your soul mate could be out there waiting for you.

    By Blogger Cathy, at 7:36 PM  

  • My goddness you get tagged alot.

    By Blogger Ruben, at 8:22 PM  

  • this whole thing made me laugh. you've got a couple of things in the wrong categories. the q-tip thing needs to be switched with scratching your crotch. for sure..........TMI

    do you smell your hand afterwards? now THAT is a problem. and if you do then you might as well forget about a long term relationship. and on the physical things, i was pretty sure at one point in your blogging you talked extensively about boobs. so i guess they got the boot?

    and on your hobbies, you forgot blogging. boy, you really dropped the ball on these questions. next time, let me edit them for you for gollys sakes.

    a good editor is a real plus, in this world today. i'm available for hire, and i only charge a nominal fee. free medical advice. I've got this rash......................

  • i q-tip too angel- its a have to after my shower in the mornings. and i think people that don't are my

  • "Two things that scare you
    1. sharks
    2. long term relationships"

    these two things apply to me perfectly.

    By Blogger joey♥, at 11:48 PM  

  • i too, admit i am a pubic - i mean public scratcher.

    By Blogger coloradohurricane, at 12:13 AM  

  • Um...public scratching/farting/burping is a norm in India. Hehehehe!!!! It's kind of funny/bizzare. You'd fit right in. No one would look at you in a weird way.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 12:31 AM  

  • You know what's the worst of all? Being tagged in the grocery line by a racist who is counting his change, talking about the latest Hollywood break-up, and heading out to his music-blaring convertible!

    I just hate that.

  • You have the Q-tip issue too! Just like me.

    By Blogger sabatkes, at 10:38 AM  

  • I too would like to travel, Go to Greece and Italy, and I too q-tip my ears every day. Good luck on your Medical Career.

    By Blogger Drywall Mom, at 10:56 AM  

  • I hate sharks too. There's only good kind of shark, a dead one!

    By Blogger Anonymous Shannon, at 11:24 AM  

  • You need to tag some people. Enough people read you that you can change the world!

    By Blogger Luke, at 12:30 PM  

  • I've been wanting so see Wedding crashers.

    My best friend went to Italy for 2 weeks last year and she loved it. Said it was really beautiful.

    By Blogger Lindsey, at 2:31 PM  

  • This may sound stupid, but what is the difference between an ECG and an EKG? I vaguely remember the terms "electrocardiogram" and "electroencephologram" (EEG) from my days in the Health field, but keeping them straight always drove me crazy.

    I am a change-counter and one who used to drive with my music blaring with the top down. When I'd pull up to a stoplight I always got self-conscious about what people thought and turned it down, though. Apparently it really does bother some people! lol

    By Blogger ***Double_Oh_No***, at 2:38 PM  

  • You are Filipino and German? Interesting. That is exactly what my father is. Than he married my mother who is Czech. so I am Filipino, German, and Czech.

    Nobody ever believes I have Filipino in me because I have blonde hair and green eyes.

    By Blogger Laura:), at 3:40 PM  

  • Man I HATE filipinos!


    By Blogger The Phoenix, at 3:57 PM  

  • BUENO!!!

    By Blogger Greg - Cowboy in the Jungle, at 9:04 PM  

  • Good stuff! So you know my perfect pair of black boots? I love them!

    Greece is great, I worked there for a couple months when I backpacked Europe-although it was just the islands so it was more German holiday makers paradise, but paradis none the less!!

    I think we need to start an ear cleaners addiction support group..."hi, my name is Angela and I have an ear cleaning addiction"
