I was all ready to post my
Then I realized, I never really introduced myself. Sure, I have an about me page, and I've done a survey or two since I started blogging. I feel like I've connected with a few of y'all via email & commenting on your blogs, but since I've seen some new people around here recently, I thought maybe I should "re-introduce" myself. So let's take it back to the beginning...
Okay, not that far back...who knows, maybe we have lots in common - or maybe you'll decide you hate me. You probably won't, 'cause I'm great, but, ya know.
| edit | - it's actually really hard to write about yourself & not just repeat your "About Me" page.
I guess let's start with the basics. Hi, I'm Jessie. Which BTW isn't short for anything. You're welcome to call me Jess, but not Jessica - 'cause it's not my name.
I grew up in Kentucky, but then moved to Pittsburgh, graduated college, biked across the country, found a job, hated it, quit, found a different job, loved it, and decided to stay. Eventually I met Mr. Sass on the Internet and now we're getting married (soon!)!
But, you probably know most of that, so how about the good stuff, the stuff you probably don't know (and maybe didn't want to)...
Q : Can you recommend a good wine?
A : I buy my wine based on how pretty the label is - and based on if it's over or under $7. I love a good Trader Joe's wine though. If you're into that kind of thing, let's chat.
A : Considering my favorite kind of shopping is wine shopping, followed directly by grocery shopping, I think it's safe to say, no, not really.
Q : How do you take your coffee?
A : On any given Wednesday, I take my coffee with just a splash of cream or milk. If I'm pretending I'm fancy you'll find me adding flavored creamer or ordering a latte or cappuccino like I know what that really means.
Q : Which would you rather do : wash the dishes, mow the lawn, vacuum the house or clean the bathroom?
Q : Which of the five senses would you say is your strongest?
A : Mr. Sass will tell you my hearing is impeccable, especially when it comes to hearing things he thinks he is saying under his breath. Or when I woke up from a dead slumber to tell him to quit eating all the muffins once I heard him opening the bag, from 3 rooms away & through a closed door. ;) He'll also tell you the second I give him a peck after work I can also taste if he's been eating things I told him to stay away from. Like cheese.
Q : What was your first job?
A : Well, my Dad owned a laundromat & tanning salon hybrid, so I would work as the attendant on weekends once I turned 15. But, the first job I applied for was Library Page. I re-shelved all the returned library books. It was my favorite. I could check out as many books as I wanted at once, and listen to music while no one talked to me.
Q : What's a random factoid about yourself?
A : I have mirror image freckles on the inside of my middle fingers.
Q : What did you want to be when you were a kiddo?
A : A physical therapist, until my Mom told me I might have to touch feet. Nope. Hard pass. I ended up deciding to be a supply chain major in college because I like shipping containers & thought they were cool. Nothing like basing huge life decisions off of your general enjoyment for random shit. But it all worked out & I love what I do.
Q : What's something you wish you could change about yourself?
A : My general organization skills. I'm the kind of person that's messy, but knows where things are. My co-workers all laugh 'cause my desk is scattered with napkins that I've used to take notes instead of a notebook. Whatever. I've tried really hard to embrace organization in the past, but nothing has really stuck, so right now I'm sort of just rolling with it.
Q : If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life?
A : Sushi, or general tso's with a whole bunch of fried rice and a side of wonton soup. Mmm.
Your turn - I'd love to hear your answers to any of the questions above!
