Circle of Friends Award

Today I received the Circle of Friends Award from Amanda at This is Just Me and My Little World .  Thanks for thinking of me!

Five things about me:

1.  I have a princess toe, people.  Yes, you read that right.  A princess toe.  It's not cute, and I totally get it from my dad.  In case you don't know what a princess toe is, it's the second toe (next to my big toe) and is longer than my big toe.  Yuck. Just writing the word toe weirds me out.  Toes and feet.  Not cute.

2.  I am a certified BIOTCH in the morning when I wake up.  It takes me a good hour to get up and around, and if you see me in the morning-stay clear.

3.  My favorite place to eat is East-side Mario's in Cornwall, Ontario.  Back when it was no biggie to cross the border (my girlfriends and I would do it three times a week when the exchange rate was decent to go hit up the bars) we would eat there frequently.  All you can eat salads.  Yummy breads.  Sitting at the bar eating peanuts and throwing the shucks on the floor.   Eastside Marios-why aren't you in the US?

4.  I have this thing for goats cheese.  I used to detest it, and couldn't stomach the taste or smell.  Now I am really into it-and goats milk. 

5.  I'm one of the biggest girly- girls you could ever meet, yet I'm also a huge tomboy.  I grew up in a very outdoorsy family.  Fishing was introduced to me at a very young age, and I've been hooked ever since.  Fishing is probably the most relaxing thing one could do.  I have great memories of my dad and my best guy friend out in his boat trying to catch northers or pike.

Now here are the rules:
