See? I'm cool.

Good GOD I love a chain survey.  Even better when you can broadcast it over the interwebz.  I'm traveling for work today so I'm already tucked in bed in the Morganton Hampton Inn, so this is a fun way to kill some time.

Thanks to cousin Brandy for tagging me on this one.

11 Random Facts about Sarah:
  1. I used to work at the front desk for an oral surgeon.  Sometimes, I even had to assist in wisdom teeth surgery.  I HATED that job.
  2. I don't think Monty Python is funny.  Or Ace Ventura.  Or Austin Powers.  This disturbs my husband.
  3. I'm allergic to cats.  But I have 2 of them.  
  4. I. Hate. Cantelope.
  5. I've visited more foreign countries than I have states in the US. (unless you include airports.)
  6. I learned to water ski when I was 6.  I'm pretty good at it now. It's a rite of passage in the Mann family.  The skis had snoopy on them.  We were tied to the skiis, the skiis were tied together, and the skiis were tied to the boat.  You learned to ski, or you drowned.
  7. Seeing dolphins in the wild never gets old to me, even though I've seen hundreds at the River.
  8. I teach the violin part-time (I've been playing since I was three!) and my favorite kids are the ones everyone else gives up on... teenagers.
  9. When I'm in my car by myself, I pretend I'm being interviewed by Terry Gross.
  10. Or on the broadway stage.
  11. I'm pretty sure Kelly Clarkson and I would be BFFs.
Questions I was asked to answer:
  1. Where do you buy most of your clothes?  Ann Taylor Loft and Banana Republic Outlet.  Not regular banana, it doesn't fit right - only the outlet.
  2. What is your favorite drink recipe?  Grown-up drink?  I'd say the grown up lemonade we're so fond of... It has coconut rum, regular rum, peach schnapps, mango rum, and countrytime lemonade mix.  YUM.
  3. Describe your most memorable high school experience.  Probably playing "Landslide" at senior prom.  I wasn't that cool, but on stage with a guitar, mic, and a kickass cello player - well, at least a couple of people knew who I was after that.
  4. Is there a song that you always have to sing aloud every time?  Like, every broadway song, ever. Also, Party in the USA. 
  5. Do you prefer beach or mountains and why? Mountains - less chance I'll get dangerously sunburned.
  6. Do you still hang out with any of your childhood friends? Yup!  Shruthi has been my dear friend since we were 10.
  7. Coco Pebbles or Coco Krispies? Neither.  Regular Krispies (with a scoop of sugar) please!
  8. If you could meet one blogger (besides me of course), who would it be?  I think Gina at  I wish I could learn how to tweak recipes to make them healthier.
  9. If you were deserted on an island and could only have 3 beauty items, what would they be (not basic hygiene)?   Charleston Soap Chef body butter, Kiels face cream, and as much sunscreen as I could carry.
  10. What is your favorite fancy coffee choice?  Calories notwithstanding? Mint Condition from Caribou Coffee.
  11. When did you get your first cell phone?  Junior in college - so 2002.
