Faculty member (and aspiring author) Jennifer Tanner answers the burning question – white or wheat? Let’s find out what goes on in Jen’s brain shall we?
White or wheat? I prefer white only because I was forced to eat wheat (Harvest Day brand from Lucky’s). Now, I eat whole grain and indulge in sourdough or rosemary potato when I can. I’m a total carb freak. Good bread is better than candy.
Dog or cat? I like dogs, but our yard isn’t fenced. I have two cats, Paxil and Cheddar. I terrorize them with a lint roller.
Drive or fly? If the trip is more than five hours, I’m taking the bird.
PBJ or tuna? Neither. A fried bologna sandwich with good mayo like Duke’s is a secret guilty pleasure.
Leather or lace? Both are too extreme for me. Stretchy cottons are more my speed.
Mountains or beach? Hmm…the mountains in the summer and the beach in the winter.
Paperback or hardback? Depends on the book. If it’s a keeper, then hardback. I won’t loan out my hardback books.
Flip flops or tennis shoes? I’m leaning toward tennies, but I wear Merrell clogs all the time.
Pen or pencil? Pen because I can never find a pencil sharpener when I need one. Also, I’m a stationery whore–I love pretty paper and nice pens. Writing notes via snail mail is almost a lost art.
Mac or PC? I use a laptop. A good friend has three (yes, three!) slim, lightweight Macs. I’m quite envious so a I might spring for one when my laptop goes toes up.
Coffee or tea? Coffee! Preferably Starbucks or Peet’s. I’ve been drinking coffee since I was eight. My parents didn’t believe in assigned bedtimes.
Night owl or early riser? I’m definitely a night owl. (And this way, I can catch up on the past episodes of Law and Order and keep Carrie company until it’s beauty rest time for her.)
Coke or Pepsi? Diet Coke with crushed ice and a squeeze of lemon is my cocktail of choice. Diet Pepsi only if I’m desperate.
City or country? Having spent my high school years in the country, I prefer the convenience of the city.
Cat Woman or Wonder Woman? Wonder Woman. She’s perfectly accessorized and I covet her belt.
Superman or Batman? Neither. I had a mad crush on Robin and I adored Alfred.
Email or Text? Email but I’m texting more.
Summer or winter? When I was a kid, I loved summer. Now, fall is my favorite season.
Cheetos or Doritos? Original Cheetos! Why does salt and fat taste so good?
Lays or Ruffles? Ruffles are better for dipping.
Rock ‘n Roll or classical? Rock. Probably because my dad used to listen to Mantovani. (cringes) I’ll listen to anything except heavy metal and rap.
Sunny side up or scrambled? Any way is fine, but I’m not a fan of hard-boiled unless it’s in a salad and please, no quail eggs!
Milk chocolate or dark chocolate? Bittersweet. But I love See’s dark nuts and chews, Almond Roca and Cadbury Flake.
Jeans or khakis? Jeans. The more worn and faded, the better.
Baseball or football? College football. Roll on you Bears!
Interested in knowing more about Jen? You can email me even if it’s after hours on a school night. Chances are I’ll be up!
Be sure to drop by on Friday to meet Heather Long – she’s one of a kind!
