A few things about me

I saw this today on Crazy Aunt Purl's blog and thought it would be neat to do so here goes:

TEN Random Things You Didn't Know About Me:
1. I wear something pink, somewhere on my body every day.
2. When I take a shower, there is a specific order I do things and if something happens and I get out of order, I have to do it all over again.
3. If a restaraunt doesn't have sweet tea, I will always order a soda instead of unsweet and adding the sweetener myself.
4. I like my coffee to be very sugary.
5. I take pleasure in coming up with new ways to wake up students who go to sleep in my classroom.
6. I still don't really know what I want to be when I grow up.
7. The one thing I do know is that I want to own a yarn shop.
8. I hate going to the restroom in public places and I will make myself sick before I do #2 in a public place.
9. I spray my classroom computers with lysol everyday because kids are gross.

    A hint on waking up those sleepers in class...

    My french teacher in high school used to mark on the face of any unsuspecting conked out student. One time, she drew on this kids face in marker, toilet papered him to the desk, had the year book come down and take a picture, and he STILL didn't wake up until the bell rang! Too bad it was picture day!
