I make the bed every day. I'm a clean freak....but to an extent of course.
I have family, born in or that came from, Canada, Japan and Hungary.
I'm not telling my first nickname!

And every day is 'make your bed' day here.
We don't have a hound so can I hug the cat instead?

Today’s Question(s):

What was the mascot of the high school you attended?
An oil rig! I always thought that was the most ridiculous thing.

Bonus Question:

When did you last make your bed? I'm afraid to say. Even though I am a huge neat freak, one of the few things I don't do is make the bed.


Extra Credit Question:

Most of the people who live in what we now call the United States of America are descended from people who emigrated from elsewhere in the world. Where did your ancestors emigrate from?
Italy

If you are descended from one of the indigenous peoples in North America, which of the First Nations represents your ancestors?


Just for Fun:

What was the first nickname you had?
Just a variation of my given name.

Today’s Question(s):

According to my son, it’s football season! What are the team colors of the football team at:
The nearest high school to your home? I'm not entirely sure...weird.
The nearest college or university? Green and white
The nearest NFL team? Orange and Brown....I think.

What was the mascot of the high school you attended? We were the trojans We had an actual mascot, but no one paid attention. We always got in trouble for pinning condoms on our clothes during school spirit week.


Bonus Question:

When did you last make your bed? Yesterday. I was lazy today.


Extra Credit Question:

Most of the people who live in what we now call the United States of America are descended from people who emigrated from elsewhere in the world. Where did your ancestors emigrate from?
Umm- all over the darn place, but France, Germany, Ireland, Scandinavia (and that honestly looks like I spelled it wrong) are the big ones. I think....
If you are descended from one of the indigenous peoples in North America, which of the First Nations represents your ancestors?


Just for Fun:

What was the first nickname you had?
lala
