Interesting Tidbits

Want to know even more about me? Visit http://mandyroth.com/blog/

Here's some more info about me:

I love coffee. I only drink 2-3 cups a day (except on weekends, where I'll drink much more), but I've been trying to cut back to only weekends for certain reasons. I've been drinking less for the past few months, skipping days, etc, and it has made me realize that my life has gone to H-E-double hockey sticks since I've cut down. Do I feel better? Absolutely not. My attitude isn't the same if I don't have my coffee. It's worse. :) So, I'm drinking it again, just trying to drink less (and no, don't even mention decaffeinated! It doesn't work for me!) It's not like coffee is horrible for us. I've always thought it was good for you even before the "experts" said it was. And why rob ourselves of every enjoyment? I can't eat chocolate everyday (well, I could, but the consequences would be much worse than my coffee), so why rob myself of the one thing I enjoy?

Speaking of enjoying things, I wanted to point you over to The Blonde Duck's Blog today. She blogged about what would happen if she was a dog. It made me smile and realize that we miss out on so many things because we're trying to be mature, responsible adults. I've jumped in mud puddles with my niece, but it's been awhile. It's easy to get "stuck in a rut" and have tunnel vision when you're pursuing a goal. Stop and smell the roses! Take time to enjoy something you normally don't take time for. You might be looked upon as a little strange if you put your nose in a water sprinkler, but do something different! Oh yeah, this is a reminder to myself, too.

Share an interesting fact about you! This month's contest is...just comment something about you and I'll draw a name at the end of the week. Anyone who comments until March 1 will be entered to win. What do you win? Well, since I can't always give something away, this time you will earn a spot from me on my blog for a day. If you're a published author, you can share your excerpt, your book cover, blurb and/or a book trailer (if I can figure out how to post the dang trailers). If you're a reader, you can blog whatever you want for a day on my blog. Yep, nothing fancy by any means, but it's a contest! Can't wait to see what happens!

An interesting fact about me...hmmm...let me think.

As part of research for my recent book, I visited a BDSM 'munch'. What can I say, it was a very interesting experience and the members were wonderful and extremely helpful. I think I'll leave it at that. ;)

I have to agree with you on the coffee issue though, Emma. I cannot give it up. And some studies do say it is good for us...

My grandmother cut out butter and fats from her diet when she was in her 70's because she didn't want to gain weight. Huh? What fun is Maine lobster without butter? I told her to go for it. Why take the joy out of your food? Everything in moderation.

That said... something about me. I was a wild child as a teenager and was such a good kid at home, my parents never found out all the naughty things I did!

Thanks so much for the kind compliments! I'm glad you enjoyed the entry. It made me warm and fuzzy and my toes tingled with joy!

Something interesting about me (so you can have more ammo): Every time I load the dishwasher with powdered soap, I have to hold my breath or else I taste soap in my mouth.

Wow, lots of good ammo, I mean tidbits!

Here's another fact about me: I get very grumpy when I don't write for days.
