  6. Ok Jess can you please tell me WHAT is hummus and what does it taste like? I’ve read about it, heard about it but never actually seen it or known anyone who actually eats it! Educate this thirtysomething chick will ya? 🙂 Jess

  8. Thanks for playing. I enjoyed your answers. I like you snacks, you music choices, and the things you like doing. Wow, 10 miles a day. Incredible.

  9. Thanks those that played along.

    Ghost – I missed ya

    Jess,
    Hummus is mashed chickpeas (garbanzos) seasoned with garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and spices. You can buy it in your grocery store. It’s great to dip veggies and pita bread in or to put it on sandwiches. (pssst..it’s good for you too)

    Plantation – I do one long 10 miler once a week. Just for fun.

  10. Thanks Jess….ok I will take the plunge and try hummus, though I don’t think my husband would dare touch it!! 🙂

  11. 10 Years Ago Today
    I was a sophmore in college, and still a music major.

    Five Years Ago Today
    I was *still* in school, only I was now in law school.

    1 Year Ago Today
    I was living and working in Naples, Florida, at one of the worst offices I have ever been in, and that’s saying a lot.

    Yesterday
    I interviewed two people for a receptionist job. The funny part is the former Hooters Girl was the more presentable, personable, intelligent, and reserved one of the two. I prepared some documents, and went to the gym. Then last night I hung out with some girl that I thinks wants a relationship or sex or both, but I’m just not that into her. I’m not sure what to say. So we were talking to 1 in the morning. We have great conversation. I just have no attraction to her. Too bad.

    Tomorrow
    I will work, interview, and try to enjoy my evening. Hopefully, I will avoid anymore late nights with girls I’m not attracted to without any notion of how I express this to them.

    5 Snacks I enjoy
    Baked chips, hummus, Goldfish, grapes, Cold Stone ice cream

    5 Bands That I Know the Lyrics to Most of Their Songs:
    Billy Joel, Paul Simon, 3 Doors Down, Madonna, and Harry Connick, Jr. (This does not necessarily reflect the music I listen to the most.)

    5 Things I Would Do with a $100,000,000:
    Buy my mom a house and let her retire, buy a sailboat and start sailing everywhere, start more places for kids – like Boys and Girls Clubs and such – and programs to help them, and try to setup more battered women’s shelters and such. I’d also like to start better internship programs for kids and scholarship funds.

    5 Locations I Would Like to Run Away to:
    Australia, New Zealand, Carmel or Napa Valley (never been to either but I hear good things), Chicago, or the Bahams.

    5 Bad Habits I Have:
    It sometimes takes me awhile to fold my laundry, I should clean more, I don’t take the time to settle into the place I live – probably because I have moved so frequently, I’m too honest sometimes, and I fall for the wrong type of women frequently.

    5 Things I Like Doing:
    Enjoy a time with my friends (and preferably a drink or six), listening to music (often jazz), sex, cooking/eating, and sleeping.

    5 Things I would Never Wear
    A dress (even though my friend is dying to see me dress in drag), nail polish, piercings, a wig, and lipstick.

    5 TV Shows I Like(d):
