I see dead people!!

Tonight was a first for me! I am about 95% sure I saw a dead body tonight. Here's the story... I was walking to a grocery store today, the one that gives you 10% off on Wednesday nights and I passed a parked car. What was odd about this was that there was a lady in the passenger seat and she looked like she was passed out, but the car door was open. There was a bit of commotion around the car, but I didn't pay it much attention because I was on 125th, and if you have been to NYC you'll know that 125th is quite the commotion of a street. Lots of people, cars, loud noises, people milling around etc. So it didn't really register as anything to me.

THEN after I passed the car I started thinking about the woman and how remarkably still she was. I was very impressed that she could sleep so soundly with the noise of the street, then I started to wonder if she was okay. I briefly considered calling 911 and having the police check on her, but there were a lot of people walking around the car looking in so I figured they were on top of it.

So then I went to the store and paid it no mind. As I was leaving the store I saw a bunch of flashing lights and wondered what it was... then as I approached the ambulance and police car I remembered the woman in the front seat. When I got up there the ambulance closed their door and drove off, but not very quickly and the woman in the passenger seat was gone.

So that's the story... all because I wanted toilet paper and some chips...

11 Random Things About Me!

1.I get really upset if I get all dolled up for something and I don't think enough people have seen me.
2. I actually have pretty bad performance anxiety. RIGHT before I have to give a talk/ make a presentation/ start an interview (as interviewer or interviewee)/ star in a roadshow(once)/ meet with a large group of people I get so insanely nervous and my heart pounds and my ears turn HOT and I am frozen in terror. You would NEVER know it once I get started though. 
3. I will never be the sweet perfect mormon housewife. I am slowly coming to terms with that being okay
4. I have no idea who I want to be President right now, but I know who I definitely DON'T want
5. I HATE mushrooms, like HATE. I think they are the grossest things ever.
6. I wish I could eat sweets all day everyday all day long. I crave desserts I don't even know exist.
7. I am ADDICTED to "Draw Something"
8. I have recently discovered the reason I love ATMs, Self checkout etc. is because I spend most my day already interacting with the public and I'm over it by the time errands come
9. I don't think I will ever be a grown up
10. I like the idea of polkadot, but I can never find any polkadot clothing that looks good on me.
11. My job satisfaction is based on how busy I am and how much I like the people I work with

Questions I was asked:

1) Why do you blog? It's twofold really. 1. Sometimes I think the world and my friends actually care what I think and that my random thoughts are amusing. 2. because I need to get it out of my brain so it doesn't fester in there

2) What is one thing that comes easy to you, that doesn't come easy to others? I think it's the ability to talk to anyone... I have had a rivetting conversation with CEOs of major companies and a young man who grew up on a grass farm

3) What is your biggest regret? I really try to live regret free... but I think it would be the crazy credit card debt I got myself into while in college. I spent SO much money paying that off and nothing I got with the CC was anything of value, just dumb stuff and a lot of eating out

4) What is your one guilty purchase? Something you splurge on and justify splurging on? Food. I make good food, but I love being pampered in a sense. Also, gifts for good friends... if I think it's the most fantastic of presents for someone and just the most perfect gift I give it without thinking about the pricetag.

5) Where would you live, if you could live anywhere? I would probably live in SoCal or the Outer Banks North Carolina. Perfect weather, beaches, relax people... heaven

6) How do you feel about cats? Dislike. I am a dog person. My pet comes when I calls and give me love when I want

7) What is your favorite place in the whole world? Post pictures. I pretty much loved my family trip to Hawaii... and my honeymoon to the DR... basically if it's warm and sandy and beautiful it's my favorite place.

8) What, in your opinion, is the biggest problem our society faces? A lack of compassion. I think if we all just stopped for a second and considered what our words/ actions do to others and the impact they have the whole world would be a much better place.

9) What is one of your pet peeves? When people don't understand/ notice the line or proper order to enter things... for example... I was waiting for the subway, it pulled up and I was standing right to the side of a door. I then had a man push me aside to get into the subway before me even though I was clearly standing there waiting for people to exit.

10) What is one demographic that truly pisses you off, and why. Entitled people. Ugh it skews younger, but it can be anyone, the person who thinks that they're doing you a favor by working for you or the adult who thinks it's okay to yell at someone because their company paid for lunch isn't there at the exact moment they want it to be.

11) What's the first thing you think when you wake up in the morning? Why me? why is it so early?
