BYOC #5

Doing this just because I have a few minutes before I go and watch AVATAR!!!!
1. Name a career you would NOT want to do and tell why.
Accountant. My DH is a Chartered Accountant (I think it is called a CPA in the US). I haven’t done a tax return in 30 years (but he hasn’t cooked much either—evens out). Guess what, it is tax season when all those people you never, ever hear from, call and ask stupid tax questions. Come on—pay an accountant to do your tax return and don’t try to get free professional advice. OK, most of these people are family and a few do give him a wad of cash every once in a while (or a bottle of 18 year old Scotch) but why don’t you care about us during the rest of the year. The laugh's on you this year—he’s stuck in the Philippines so I hope you don’t owe any money. I already got my money back. Ha Ha Ha Ha! Plus accountants go bald and I want my hair.

2. What’s the best present you ever received for your birthday?
I got my tonsils out on my 8th birthday. I got a bunch of presents and lots of ice cream and time off school. Don’t remember any other gifts or birthdays.

3. What do you hide behind?
This will take a post in itself. Working on it, but can’t quite put it into words just yet. Wasn't really thinking about answering when I asked Draz to put in on the list. Do I get a passing grade on answering 4 out of 5 questions? I'll hand in the other homework in a few days.

4. Where were you born?
In a hospital. (Southern Ontario, Canada)

5. What blog spoke to you the most, stuck with you, had the most effect on you this week?
Got this one: see yesterday’s post. (Hint: Sherry & Amandakiska)

Extra: Since I still have a few minutes. My hair is falling out so I bought some Biotin. Everyone says it works so we'll see. My hairdresser (got a cute cut and style today) also mentioned Omega 3 and 6—the oil you find in fish and flax seeds (or supplements). My DH is still stuck in Manila and will try to get a flight back next Tuesday. My DS is attempting the flight back on Sunday to Frankfurt so hope the backlog is cleared so he gets back here. I miss them both. Adios, amigos. Off to watch AVATAR! Too bad I didn't have one of those big 3D screens.

Love the accountant comments.. You must be going crazy trying to get your family back.. It's amazing how the skies are backed up like this.

One comment on the hairloss... as mine started to fall out. I took all of the supplements, bought the shampoo, ate almonds.. yada yada yada.. didn't help me.. but at about month 5 it stopped falling out.. hope it is a short stint and stops soon.

Cool answers, Madam. Hope you have a fun weekend.

HAHAHA - you asked for #3 - now you gotta answer it! YOU MUST! LOL

Great answers. I have a teaspoon of flaxseed oil everyday with breakfast along with a multi-vitamin and haven't experienced hairloss yet. I think both those things have helped.

Have a great weekend and hope your hubby makes it home soon.

P.S. Love your new profile pic!

Thanks for the great feedback on my blog today, Sandy.

I hear you about not wanting to be an accoutant. I am NOT a numbers person. About 10 minutes into it and my eyes are glazing over. I admire those who can do it though.

Do you have a similar tax system in Canada as we have here in the US?
