The Ten Day “You” Challenge – Day 5

11 Feb


This is turning into a one year challenge instead of 10 Days. I cannot seem to get through this list. What scares me is… when I do, what then? I’m sure I’ll always have something to write about. Hell, I was on the radio for over a year and I never was at a loss for words or topics then. The makeup and fashion industry is always changing–I’ll always have something to write about there. And if I decide to write about men and/or Mr. Sassy? That alone is several months of material. For example, next week is Valentine’s Day and my husband is already done shopping for me. THAT is a book in itself!

Back to the challenge. Day Five: Five Foods. Easy peasy. I’m not a fussy eater, and because Mr. Sassy is in the food service industry, I am always exposed to fabulous and new things. I promised him–if I had never ate something before and he says to just try it, I will. Because of that promise, I have ate frogs legs, caviar, raw clams, ceviche fish, squid ink pasta… I’ve tried my share! (And none of them ended up on my favorites list either!) But there are some things that are just my favorites. And I don’t think they’ll ever change:

Five Foods

    1. Steak — well aged, cooked medium, and tender enough to cut with a spoon.

    2. Alaskan King Crab Legs — steamed to perfection, with enough melted butter to grease the chassis of a Mac truck.

    3. Tempura Lobster Roll — I know of only one place near where I live who has this, and I wouldn’t order it any other place even if I did find it. It’s fabulous beyond words. Keep it up, 677 Prime!

    4. Creme Brulee — It takes a lot to really mess up a dessert of creme brulee but very few places can make it excellent. And I can remember where I have had excellent creme brulee! I love to try them all and compare!

    5. My Husband’s Chicken Francaise — Mr. Sassy is a fabulous cook, and he knows exactly how I like this dish. The more lemon, the better. Place it on a side of angel hair pasta and I’m in Heaven.

That was a breeze. Of course, now I’m hungry for everything on that list and I don’t have one of them around. Hmmmm, my choices right now are frozen Stouffer’s Macaroni & Beef, ice cream sandwiches, or maybe a Salisbury Steak with instant potatoes. At least no matter what I choose to eat for my main meal, I can be pampered with a fabulous dessert thanks to something I picked up while shopping yesterday–a strawberry-filled Godiva truffle candy bar. Now THAT can make even a pathetic meal worth eating!

The Ten Day “You” Challenge

12 Nov


Earlier today, the above photo came across my Tumblr feed.
I liked it. It got me thinking. Usually, I like things that get me thinking. Without hesitation, I re-Tumbl’d it and committed myself to doing it. I figured I would write about it on my own personal blog because a) I am usually too busy blogging elsewhere to be here that much; b) it would give my followers some information about me; and c) it’s kind of like one of those online surveys which I am totally addicted to.

The first item on the list, of course, is ten secrets. Wow. Why couldn’t that be around two or three? TEN? I don’t even know if I have 10 secrets! I’m pretty much an open book and if you asked me a question, I’d probably answer you not just honestly but with more details than you’d ever want to know. Okay, so let’s get this thing rolling….

Ten Secrets

    1. I have an addiction to makeup. (Buying it, I mean)

    2. I ate frog’s legs once and did NOT think it tasted like chicken.

    3. I stole the back of an earring at my local discount store when I was 10 because I had lost one of mine. (See? I still feel guilty.)

    4. I dressed up in a school girl costume to get a job once. (Great story!)

    5. I lost my father in a boating accident when I was only 7… and I miss him every day.

    6. I have been diagnosed with not one but two auto-immune diseases, but still never hesitate to face each day with a smile.

    7. I have some pieces of clothing in my closet that are my daughter’s that she thinks just went “missing”.

    8. I lived three months in shelter for victims of domestic violence about 16 years ago, then became an advocate against violence towards women in my community.

    9. I had to buy a new pair of shoes once because I realized I left the house with two different ones on.

    10. I did not meet my husband at a horse race track like we used to tell everyone. I actually met him online in an AOL chat room.

Some of my “secrets” aren’t hidden to everyone–a few of my closest friends know about them. Many of my secrets, however, are probably a surprise to many. Did I disclose them to enlighten you or me? Nah. I just want people to know that in regards to some things?… I’m no different than anyone else. I’m just your average sassy fashion and glamour blogger–with a few challenges–chasing her dream…

… and I dare you to do the same!!
