1. What is your biggest driving pet peeve?
~ That is an easy one. My job is driving so I am on the road a lot and to be honest, I have a LOT of driving-related peeves, but the number one peeve on my list is.....drivers in front of you who drive well below the speed limit....until you try to pass them, then they suddenly develop a lead foot and speed up so much you can't pass without going WAY over the speed limit. Then just to bug you more, the minute you drop back behind them....they slow way down again.
2. What is your biggest blogging pet peeve?
~ Word verification. I know it's necessary to thwart spammers, but it is soooo annoying.
3. What is your biggest general pet peeve?
~ Right now it's the over-use of the word "racist." The kids I work with are the worst, but I see it in adults, too. With these people it doesn't seem to matter what you're talking about, the minute your opinion doesn't match theirs...YOU'RE RACIST! I want to throttle the kids on my bus when I tell them to sit down or stop doing something because it's a safety issue or annoying and they fire back with "You're racist!"
4. What is your most irrational fear?
~ Irrational? Probably sharks. I have been absolutely terrified of them since I saw Jaws when I was 12. For months after that I wouldn't even let a hand or foot hang over the edge of the bed at night for fear a shark would get me. I got scared in swimming pools that a shark would get me. To this day I still don't like swimming pools at night for the same reason and though I absolutely love the beach I do not go in the water any deeper than my ankles.
5. Name 3 celebrities you'd want to have dinner with.
~ Toby Keith, any (or all) of the Robertson clan from Duck Dynasty, and either of my favorite authors, James Rollins or Janet Evanovich.
