5 Question Friday: Karaoke, Coffee and Names

It's almost an hour into Saturday, but I thought the questions for this week were too fun to resist! Welcome to Five Question Friday, courtesy of My Little Life blog...

My Little Life

1. Do you sing karaoke? If so, what is your go to song?
I do, actually! Something happened to me only a few years ago...a surprising and much welcomed change. I can finally recognize when my own singing is off-key or "pitchy", as the American Idol judges would term it. Now I'm always the singer for Rockband Wii here at my house. 
My best karaoke songs are classic Cher hits like "Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves" or "If I Could Turn Back Time". Raise the roof!

2. What is your favorite coffee drink?
Just a simple whole milk latte is my favorite. So creamy and delicious! I'm not a fan of artificial sweeteners, so it's nice to add my own amount of sugar at the end. YUM. 

3. If you could choose your own name, what would it be?
Such a loaded question for me! I grew up hating my name--Bridgette. When I was very young, I thought it was too long and annoying to write. Nobody ever spelled it correctly. Although, my mother almost named me Bernadette...definitely worse!
When I was in second grade, my grandmother gave me a list of new ways I could spell my name and said that since it was my name, I could spell it any way I wanted. My teacher, Sister Agnes Marie, did not agree with Grandma. 

Now I love my name because it's distinctive. Familiar, but not common. I'm especially amused by random strangers that insist on giving it a decidedly French spin.... "Bree-JZEET"! The spelling problem persists, however. People can never get past B-R-I without pausing for me to fill in the rest. Ha! 

4. Were you ever bullied?
Absolutely. Who wasn't? I've come to realize that most bullies are jealous cowards. Sad!

5. How often do you eat fast food?
Rarely. Mostly when we have a long's just so convenient! There's something about an Arby's roast beef that always hits the spot. :)
Have a fantastic weekend!
