Five Fact Friday

Morning everybody,
Its Five Fact Friday again, and this time I'm joining Tabetha's blogger challenge, over at The Closet Intellectual.

So here are my five things, for this February Friday.

1. In the past year I've discovered GeoCaching. My SO introduced me to it and I'm hooked! I'd been using the free app for my Iphone for a while, and my dad just (by just, I mean a few weeks ago) bought me the full app. Sadly I've been so busy the past few weeks I haven't been able to use it yet, but as today is the last major day of work on my thesis project, I'm hoping the coming weeks will have time for lots of caches. :)

2. I hadn't been much of a watch wearer until this past year or so. I started wearing it as it is quite handy with my work in theater (managing crews and scheduling means always knowing what time it is). I'd wanted a digital watch (I'm terrible with analog clocks.) but not some sporty, plastic looking thing. I was so happy when I found this watch at Fred Meyer for a decent price too! But that decent price is catching up to me because the (fake) leather band has been deteriorating for a while. I may look into constructing a new band for it... Something else leather and wrist cuff-y.

3. I'm a coffee fiend, and have been since high school. I blame my parents. Not that they were there with coffee cups, waving it under my nose saying "tryyyyy this coffeeeeee" (there is an entertaining picture in my head), but they do ALWAYS have coffee in the house. At any given hour if you go find the big coffee thermos that floats around the house, there will be coffee. And if there's not? Just drop a hint its empty and and you'll get the reply of "Oh, do you want another cup? Cause if you're having one I'll have some too!"
So, yeah. I like my coffee.

4. I started watching Mad Men last night. I'm hooked...

5. I reeeally like cleaning the kitchen. When I come home, and I'm tired and want to go to bed, not so much. But when I've got the time, I feel so satisfied to have a nice organized kitchen. Sadly this whole "having time" thing doesn't happen too often, but this weekend the kitchen shall be cleaned!

My husband loves geocaching...actually, I like it too. Fun to treasure hunt. And I'm with you on the kitchen thing...I think because I can see results pretty quick. Cool watch! Lynaea @

I have always wanted to try Geocaching but I feel like it would just be boring things that I find. I think once I am done with nursing school I will take it up as a hobby.

I started drinking coffee in high school too! I started having stomach issues from it though and had to kick the habit. It was awful! I always miss it and sometimes try to sneak a decaf in but even that doesn't turn out well!

It was great getting to know you a little better.

P.S. I found you through the lovely Tabetha @ A Closet Intellectual (I am also on her sidebar for the month).

Hey Amelia, my addiction isn't coffee, it's tea, well I am English lol but i lived in Texas for 10 years and while there i did have a coffee addiction. I couldn't help it, coffee in America smells so good, after bacon it's the one smell that could get me out of bed :)
Fond you via the blog hop, i'm late as i was sick this weekend. I am following on GFC and will check out if there are other ways I can follow too. Hope you like my blog enough to follow as I am trying to get to 300 followers by the end of this week, fingers crossed x
