Fun Monday: Getting To Know You!

Happy Fun Monday everyone!

First my apologies for my late post, I went to Bohol (a nearby island) to visit my Grandfather's tomb. It's All Souls' Day here.

This week's activity is about --

Most of use have been blogging for sometime yet some of us just met recently or only get in touch every Fun Monday. So next week, I will be asking 2 things --

(1) Share something which you wish your readers would know about you. It could be something you feel you might need to clarify/ share, etc. 


(2) Ask three questions to your readers, and I mean all readers, whether participants of Fun Monday or not. The questions should be generic so that all your readers can answer them and that it will help you get to know your readers more. 

Here goes mine;

First off, if there's one thing I want my readers to know about it, I guess I can sum them up in bullet points --
  • I'm Filipina, and I'm based in Cebu City, Philippines
  • IT Guy is the love of my life (in case some of you wonders who he is!)
  • I'm very close to my family, and that includes extended family.
  • I love butterflies, thus I call myself Mariposa (Spanish of butterfly).
  • This site is such a part of me that I can't imagine shutting it down! And I so enjoyed the people I meet here.
Now that I shared some little facts about myself, I hope you can tell me about yourself --
  • Where are you from? (No need to be so specific, country, state, province is enough!)
  • Please share something that is specific to where you're from. Anything your place is known or famous for, etc. (For instance, Cebu is known for nice beaches, guitars, dried mangoes, etc.)
  • Pick one thing which you can associate yourself with.
 I'd like to thank the following people for joining Fun Monday, it's always nice to get to know people!

1: I'm from Omaha, Nebraska. Lived here all my life. I keep saying I'm going to move somewhere warmer when I retire, but since I probably won't get to retire until I'm 70... we'll see.

2: Omaha has a lot of insurance companies and telemarketers. :( On the positive side, we have a wonderful zoo and some great museums.

3: I'm a chocolate fanatic!

Ah, Butterfly Lady, lovely post!

To answer your questions,

1) I'm from Houston, Texas.

2) Although it's the 4th largest city in the US, it's like a small town. It seems everyone you meet at least knows someone who knows someone who knows you. That's why we're so darned friendly here!

3) I'm allergic to latex and the adhesive on surgical tape. That makes me an interesting nurse and a difficult patient!

Hey Mariposa--great assignment. Here's my answers:

from? Louisville, KY

known for? fast women and beautiful horse--at least that's the joke. Actually KY is famous for raising thoroughbred racing horses for national and international races like the Kentucky Derby.

associated with? when I was working as a trainer I was often teased for loving flipcharts and colored markers because they helped me get a lot of group interaction.

Like the idea that you plan to be blogging for a long time.
