Love talking to others

HIYA! I'm new to the community and a re-starter of Live Journal after many many years. I use to post constantly back in my early 20's but then Marriage and kids happened and that all stopped. Now that the kids are older - and currently my husband is on deployment, I decided to pick it back up!

So I was looking over everyone's post - and I saw that most of you did an "About Me" sort of post, so I decided to put together my own lil' thing:

1. What is your favorite  song? Buddy Holly by Weezer (and going to see them June 11th YAY)
2. What was your favorite nursery rhyme? I'm not sure I have a favorite but lately my kids and I have been reciting "Little Jack Corner" because we find it extremely odd and hysterical that a little boy would stick his thumb in a pie pull out a plumb and think that makes him a good boy!?
3. What was  your favorite subject in school?  I loved Art Class and English Class... in High School I took a creative writing class and enjoyed that also! Another reason I got back into journaling - because I use to LOVE to write - and hate that I stopped.
4. What is your favorite flavor of jelly beans? I'll eat a jelly bean if it's in front of me... sometimes but I do not have a favorite nor would ever buy any. My kids tried that Bean Boozled game - where it's rotten nasty flavors... like Skunk Smell and Poop... I nearly vomited from the smell alone. EW!
5. Which flavor of ice-cream do you prefer? Coffee flavored with Heath bar - but I had gastric bypass a little over 5 years ago - and eating sugary milky things doesn't sit well with me... so it's rare that I do have ice cream.
6. What do you think is your very best feature or characteristic? I'll answer both - I think my best feature is my hair - it's very red and VERY curly (not in profile pic) and my best characteristic is I'm a people person. I love talking to people, making them smile, laugh etc...
7. What is your strongest talent? My strongest talent is my culinary skills. I am an awesome chef. I love to cook - it's my vice. relaxes me.

9. What do you usually do when you have leisure time on your hands?  Sadly - I drink. But I'm looking to change that. And not like I'm an alcoholic or anything - just I enjoy the taste of vodka as weird as that sounds. And I have a bad time relaxing - so it helps.
