I so totally stole this from Betty Rubble, a blog I follow. Go visit her to find out more, but first read my list.
1. Introduce yourself...Im Amanda, but my friends call me Mandi. I live in a small town in Indiana. I do not have children thanks to rotten eggs and a husband with soldiers who don't march. We are a match made in Heaven! We have two dogs that are our family, and a cat who graces us with attention when she deems it necceisary.
2. If it’s Wednesday at noon, where are you usually? Work, getting ready to go to lunch.

7. Do you watch MTV anymore? I never really did. And right now we do not even have a TV so I don't watch anything at all!
8. What do you think about Oprah? I dislike her. She seems genuine, but I personally think its an act. She does the big giveaways but acts so pious about them. They are always rediculous things too. I wont be surprized when I hear she gave away something so crazy like a humpback wale! EVERYBODY GETS HUMP BACK WAAAALLLEES! I also think she tells fibs...I saw once where she claimed that she weighed 135. MY RIGHT EYE! Plus she has kind of went looney tunes on the whole issue of God. Enough said.

I freaked out so much the coaster attendant had me get off the ride before they even started it. As I was doing the walk of shame down the exit ramp I heard a young boy mutter to me "BABY!" Thats me: called out by a 6 year old! It was tramatic at the time but is now a quite funny story!

49. Do you take anti-depressants? Sleeping pills? Nope, but I probably should...
50. What do you think about space travel? I can't say I've ever really thought about it....but if I had to form an opinion, I would say there are much better things our government could be spending their money on!
