Getting to Know You in 30 Days

In an effort to blog more, I've decided to do one of those "30 Day to Get to Know Me." In other words, each day I'm going to answer a question (or post a pic, depending on what the question of the day is...I'm getting the questions off the Internet) about myself or my life, etc. Surely I can manage to answer one question per day and post it. Ya think?

Since I'm three days late getting started--I was going to start on Oct. 1--today you get the first three questions. Thanks for following along. I'm hoping to incorporate any linkies into the questions...just going to have to get creative on how to cross brand (but I'm a former marketing professional, I think I can manage). So let's get's getting to know you...I mean, me.

Oct. 1 (should've been):
Post a current pic of yourself

Here you go. That's me.
Oct. 2 (happy birthday to my mom yesterday, Oct. 2):
What is your full name and tell us about it...were you named after anyone, did you like your name as a kid, etc., etc.

My full name is Alyssa Allison (I'm not giving you my maiden name or last name, even though you probably know what it is. Still, just for precautionary measures). Not named after anyone, my mom just liked the name Alyssa. My sister and I have the same middle name--Allison. Guess my mom really liked that name. Did I like my name as a kid? NO! Though the name Alyssa is becoming more and more popular, when I was a kid it was NOT popular. And I wanted a popular name so I could buy a personalized bicycle license plate or mug. I wanted to be a Stephanie or Molly or Jill or one of those names that were popular when I was kid. Also, my maiden name started with the letter A. So that was super awesome to have the initials AAA. Not really. But I'm okay with my name now. You know how it is when you're a kid, you just want to be like the other kids.

Oct. 3
When is your birthday and do you share it with a celebrity? What's your sign and do you fit the stereotype of your zodiac sign?

My birthday is May 11, and I don't think there are any celebrities with it. Hold on, let me Google that.....looks like Natasha Richardson. My sign is Taurus. I'm not really into that whole zodiac sign business, but apparently Taurus are patient and reliable, possessive, inflexible, stubborn, warm hearted and loving, persistent and determined, steadfast, loyal, and don't like change (got those personality traits off the web). Looking at those, I would say, yes, I fall into most of those categories. Except the "don't like change"...I'm pretty spontaneous and a go-with-the-flow type of gal.'s what I want from you. What do you want to know? What questions would you like me to answer? I'd love it if you'd give me your questions...leave it in the comments!

Dang, what few secrets you are out in the open. Except for the expose that I'm going to do on the "A" sisters next time I go to Kansas and talk to those who really know you.

I got to thinking today, you know I hadn't seen Alyssa's blog in a long, long time. It was not on my blog roll anymore so I had to go hunting for it.

Sorry! you are now back on the official blog roll.
