11 Things

Last week, my pal and co-worker, Colleen, tagged me in her "11 Things" post. It seemed like a really fun idea, and something different to share on my blog, so I decided to play along.

Here's how it works:
1. Post these rules.
2. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer the questions the person who tagged you set for you in their post.
4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
5. Go to their blog and tell them you’ve tagged them.
6. No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this. You legitimately have to tag 11 people.

So, without further ado, here are 11 random things about me:

1. I eat my food really, really fast. Like...it's scary.
2. When I was younger, I had my adenoids removed.
3. I met Mel Gibson at 75 Chestnut several years ago.
4. I'm Irish, English and Scottish.
5. When I was little, my dream was to become a singer/songwriter.
6. My first job was at Honey Dew Donuts (I was 15...and gained about 14 pounds).

7. My middle name is Patrice.
8. I've been to nine Hanson concerts (I was one cool teenager!).

9. I've never seen "The Wizard of Oz."
10. I'm obsessed with Ina Garten.
11. The first time I went to Krispy Kreme, I ate seven doughnuts in one sitting.

And here are the questions Colleen asked me:

1. First thing that comes to mind when you read the word: work… Busy.
2. Fill in the blank: Today is going to be a long one.
3. Beer, wine, or a cocktail? All 3.
4. Favorite holiday? Christmas.
5. Guilty pleasure? The entire Real Housewives' series.

6. Celebrity crush growing up? Taylor Hanson (don't judge).
7. Food or meal you couldn’t live without? Bagels.
8. Have you ever had a dream with a famous guest star? Who was it? I don't think I have...
9. What did you want to be when you grew up? Several things, including a teacher or singer (I also wanted to be a gas station attendant - my younger mind thought being surrounded by candy all day would be amazing).
10. Favorite song to belt out in the car? Gotye - "Somebody That I Used to Know"
11. First concert? Hanson.......

Now - tag, you're it!

4. Your favorite vice?
