BOOBs 2011 Fun Facts!

It comes from a Jimi Hendrix album called Electric LadyLAND.

2.When did you start blogging?
March 2010.

Gastric banding/weight loss.

4.Did you go to BOOBs 2010?
Yes I did. And I had an amazing time!

5.When were you banded?
March 1, 2010.

6.How much have you lost?
90-ish pounds.

7.What are you most looking forward to at BOOBs?
Seeing all my old friends and meeting new ones. Second City comedy. Meeting and greeting. And Chicago deep dish pizza. (Am I not supposed to say that?)

8.What/who do you hope to find/see/accomplish at BOOBs 2011?
I just want to have a good time.

9.Children? Pets?
No human children. Two parrots - Liberty is a Severe Macaw and Kumba is an African Grey.

10.Who is your roomie?
The amazing Lap Band Gal a.k.a. Karin. I hadn't really read her blog when I went to BOOBS last year. I had no idea who she was. But for some reason, the second we met, I felt like we'd been friends for years. We did the 5K together and then spent the rest of the day hanging out, shopping, and having a blast. She came and visited Florida and we had a fun slumber party. She was even there when I found out my baby sister was pregnant. She is in the top 5 people I text with most often. I adore Karin and if it wasn't for BOOBS 2010, I wouldn't have made such an incredible friend and I am thrilled to be sharing a room with her. The day the hotel was announced and plans were made, we decided to be roomies.

11.What day do you arrive?
Friday morning.

12.What airport/flight/time?
Not sayin' here. I'm afraid of stalkers.

Second City comedy show on Friday night (I am the organizer/point of contact) and the formal dinner on Saturday night. Other than that, I'm playing it by ear.

14.Hobbies?
Knitting, reading, riding roller coasters, shooting.

15.Career?
I want to do something with nutrition/bariatrics. Right now I am a technical support rep for a medical monitoring company.

Um. Just ask and I'll tell you. :-)
