The Tuesday Ten

Learn a thing or two about my dear friend, Kim!
And while you're at it, you should check out her witty blog ramblings here.
10 Random Facts: Kim DeMass
Kim is a fellow military spouse whose current residence is jolly ol' England...
  • Cooking for people makes me anxious – very anxious. Except for family – they always have to love me, even if it sucks. I always catch myself making excuses when I cook for others. I think the perfectionist in me is never truly satisfied with my cooking.
  • I am doomed to diabetes because sugar and I are not-so-secret lovers. We meet everyday. And because I think every meal should have a dessert….or be a dessert if it’s breakfast. I'm slightly better at this (or am trying to be), but I also love carbs, mostly in the form of bread or sweet breads - puddings, as they are called in the UK.
  • I think toasters are completely pointless. They can’t do anything that a toaster oven can’t, but they don’t make toast. You know, cheese toast, butter toast, cinnamon toast. Toaster ovens, people, toaster ovens! The UK does not have toaster ovens - I'm adjusting.
  • I love puma shoes! I just bought a new pair for work – they have lime green accents. I found out today that I have to wear all-white shoes to work. Oh well, I guess I’ll have to buy another pair in white!
  • I’m terrible at girlie things – especially doing hair and makeup and being crafty. I might be getting better, but I might be lying to myself.
  • My dog’s full name is Jackson Henry DeMass. He is a Vizsla, and he is my child.
  • I love to buy people presents! I also have the worst time keeping people’s presents a secret; I just get so excited about surprises. Kristen Wiig does a pretty great impersonation of me on SNL – see the clip hereI seriously get great amounts of joy & excitement from buying someone an awesome present. Something they didn't think to ask for or is perfect for them or they really wanted but wasn't easily obtainable. I get so excited that I usually end up giving it early or giving it away. I can't hold it in. I should start wearing turtlenecks to cover my mouth with. 
  • My mind does not process big things in a timely manner, so I never have the appropriate emotional response at big occasions. For example, the last day of the honeymoon I looked at my husband with a big smile and said “Hey, we’re married!!!”   still emotionally inappropriate/delayed.
  • I can be ridiculously indecisive.
  • I am a multiple-choice test slayer  just ask the ACT. 

Thanks for sharing, Kim! Putting this post together made me miss you like crazy cakes.
