I Mustache You Some Questions!

Tina tagged me in this survey the other day, and I love me a good survey.

I Mustache You a Question

(And pun.)

Four names that people call me, other than my real name:

  1. Teddi. I moved when I was in high school and was convinced I could get people to call me by a different name. It never really stuck, but there are still a very, very small handful of people who call me Teddi.
  2. Theo. DISLIKE. I am not Theo Huxtable.
  3. Teo. My name in Spanish class in high school and college was Teodora, so some of my friends call me Teo. I actually don’t really mind this one.
  4. Dora. My little cousin calls me this because of Dora the Explorer…and I kinda love it.

Four jobs I have had (not counting any current jobs):

  1. CVS cashier (for a day)(I just wanted to develop the film and look at people’s pics but apparently you have to be a cashier first and I had no interest in this. I think my work ethic has changed a bit since 1997.)
  2. Store associate at Pier 1 over the holidays in college << I actually LOVED this, and because I didn’t work full-time, I didn’t get sick of the Christmas music like the other employees did.
  3. Cashier at a card store. << I really liked buying and giving cards. I still do…I just remember to less now, which is bad.
  4. Political reporter

Four movies I’ve watched more than once

  1. Anchorman
  2. Elf
  3. Blades of Glory
  4. Stepbrothers

Four books I’d recommend

  1. It Was Me All Along
  2. 10% Happier
  3. Rules of Civility
  4. The Happiness Project


Four places I have lived

  1. Franklin Lakes, NJ
  2. Bethesda, MD
  3. Washington, DC
  4. New York, NY

Four places I have been

  1. Hawaii
  2. Italy
  3. Ireland
  4. Puerto Rico

Four places I’d rather be wouldn’t mind being right now

  1. Hawaii
  2. Colorado, skiing.
  3. Dallas, visting Blake and her new little muffin!
  4. New Zealand, taking a pilgrimage through sauvignon blanc country

Four things I don’t eat

  1. Milk
  2. Peanuts
  3. Pickles (EW)
  4. Tuna (other than sushi tuna)

Four of my favorite foods

  1. Avocados
  2. Eggs
  3. Tacos
  4. My mom’s spaghetti + meatballs

Four TV shows that I watch

I don’t really watch TV! I canceled cable and occasionally will watch things on my Apple TV.

Four things I am looking forward to this year (how are we defining year here? I’m going to go with the next 12 months.)

  1. CHRISTMAS. It’s almost Elf season and cookie swap season and Nutcracker season and all those other fabulous things
  2. Running the NYC Marathon again next year. If I don’t get in through the lottery, I’m going to do a charity. I can’t sit on the sidelines again.
  3. Returning to Puerto Rico in February for Lacey’s bachelorette. She had such a good time at my 30th that she just wanted to recreate it for her bachelorette. It’s over the same weekend, President’s Day weekend again, so it’s also around my birthday, so I’m considering it part birthday trip too.
  4. Winter Ball. It’s always one of the highlights of my year.

Four things I’m always saying

  1. What? << I have kind of crappy hearing/I zone out sometimes, so I say “what?” far too often. Meaning, if you lose your voice around me, you will want to kill me. (coughHeathercough.)
  2. “Another glass of wine, please?”
  3. “Of course I’ll run with you!”
  4. “Do you want to get tacos?”

    So. I picked up a copy of 10% Happier at the library, 100% lost it, found it again, and am now 10% poorer as a result of overdue fines. Also: Do not talk about pickles like that. And one more thing: I miss you.

    Checking out all of your book recommendations, I’ve read happiness project, I wish it was a little lighter reading because I’d love to re-read and get inspired for the new year, but its just a little too dry at times.

    Also, political reporter?! Cool!

    Come to Colorado!! Not sure if you saw Schneider’s pics on Facebook but the slopes are definitely snowy and the skiing is going to be great this year!

      So many factors! Breckenridge is the best place, hands-down: amazing mountain, amazing town (my mom didn’t ski, so she loved the town), but base is at pretty high altitude, if that’s a problem for you. Otherwise, love love Beaver Creek—but for the skiing, not the town. Vail has a great town, but the skiing is not quite as good. Depends on what your priorities are/how well you can handle altitude. I want to go back to CO so badly—haven’t been skiing out there since college!

        ahh thank you. We have a similar assessment. We were all in for Breck but someone got worried about the altitude. It’s too expert skiers and two beginners, so we still want an entertaining town. I think we’ll end up in Aspen…

          I’ve never been there but heard amazing things 🙂 I think the last few times we went to Breck, we ended up staying a night in Denver first to acclimate – we usually flew out late at night anyway so it was easier than driving the 2 hours there from Denver anyway late at night.
