I decorated the tree at work

I decorated the tree at work, originally uploaded by drwhogrl.

I have been making paper boxes at work for the last few days and finally finished making them. I put them over the lights on the tree to decorate the tree for St Patrick's Day at work. I think we really want to make it until Fourth of July. I may try to bring in some shamrocks too to add to it. :) And yes I was doing real work as I did the decorating and making the boxes.

Shamrock Shake #1

Having a Shamrock Shake each year is a tradition I've had since I was a little kid. 
When I heard they were already out at McDonald's I had to go get one. 
I did hear that Dairy Queen has a mint shake that rivals it 
so I may need to try that one as well.

Trying to be optimistic for the future. So far this year hasn't been great, but hoping things turn around and I can say 2011 was a good year. This picture of Sabi always makes me smile.

I forgot that when I started this blog back in 2009 I did a 30 things about me too. Check it out here.

30 Things About Wendy

  1. My second favorite color is Blue.
  2. I own all the Friday the 13th movies. I like Jason over Freddy ;-)
  3. I sneeze and cough at the same time. I wish I didn't.
  4. I'm addicted to chapstick. Spend an hour with me and that will be obvious.
  5. I injured myself installing a window fan. My friend likes to say I got into a bar fight.
  6. I can eat Wasabi peas like candy but trying to cut back.
  7. I have a hard time turning down free stuff, especially if it involves something sweet like cake.
  8. Yes I am a Doctor Who fan - I own a Tom Baker scarf, Tardis USB hub, Tardis cookie jar, a K9 action figure, poster of the first episode I watched and a sonic screwdriver (which does work :P).
  9. I love going to art museums. Best moment ever was standing in front of a DaVinci at the Smithsonium.
  10. Sharks fascinate me. Favorite quote is "Live every week like its Shark Week." I went all the way to Atlanta simply to see a whale shark in person. It was awesome. I want to go again.
  11. I've never painted my toe nails green...but I have painted them blue which they are right now.
  12. I love doing movie marathons. Most recent marathons were Rocky and Star Wars.
  13. I collect squashed pennies. It's my favorite souvenir. I'm willing to stand in line with children to get one.
  14. My favorite beer is a hefeweizen. I like the one brewed by Widmer.
  15. One of my regrets is not riding on Space Mountain. I got scared and wouldn't go on it. I think I was 7 years old. It still haunts me to this day.
  16. In college Economics fascinated me. I wish I had changed majors to that instead of Media Studies.
  17. One of my favorite times of year is March when I get to have a Shamrock Shake. ;)
  18. I can not sleep in socks even if I am cold. Wearing socks to bed drives me crazy. I will kick them off.
  19. I don't like the scars on my right hand (from #5) They show more when I am cold.
  20. Amazingly I've never broken a bone in my body, but I am clumsy and have fallen down numerous times and do bruise easily.
  21. One of my favorite flowers is lilacs. I love the smell of them.
  22. Many know I like zombie movies, but I do like martial arts movies too. Fist of Legend is one of my favorites.
  23. I collect shells. Whenever I stopped at the beach I grab a few. My favorite are the oyster shells from Damariscotta River, Maine and Maryland. I base my selections on color and smoothness etc, not perfection. I also collect rocks from where I've gone hiking.
  24. I do not like clowns...Its not that I am afraid of them....I just don't like them. And will not stand near them. Or pose in pictures with them. Yes I admit it, they are creepy.
  25. My eyes are green with some blue around the edges. I have to wear contacts but sometimes I will wear my glasses. I look super nerdy in them.
  26. I would like to get my own Boston Terrier puppy. And name him Gizmo...
  27. I've never been anywhere tropical. What is warm ocean water?? I would like to go to Hawaii.
  28. I love a bargain and getting deals with using coupons. Target is one of my happy places.
  29. I am 5'3" while my twin sister is 5'4"...weird eh?
  30. I talk in my sleep and have been known to move stuff around.Uusally telling me to go back to sleep works and I will listen.

Yoda Heart

awww....Yoda left his heart in San Francisco. I read about it here.

Jerry and Doris

When I think of Love I think of my grandparents. To this day my grandmother still lights up talking about the love of her life.
