The Weekly Re-cap: I showed you pictures of Isabella with her new Monkey Toy and my Dad entertaining.  I made Pesto and shared the recipe I used.  I tried sending a message on HootSuite and I shared a guest post called Who Will You Be When The Pilgrimage Is Over.  We discussed some good service I’ve received lately and lastly I made a request to all of you for donations for a Poker Run to benefit The Ronald McDonald House.

The Weekly Movie: Percy Jackson & The Olympians – The Lightning Thief – What I saw of it was really cute!  I need to go back and watch it again when I’m not distracted!

The Weekly Downer: Again – people who don’t return phone calls.  I have a contractor who I left a message for about 2 weeks ago.  Too late – even if he calls me back, I can’t do business with him.  If he can’t be bothered to call me when I’ve got paying work for him to do, he sure as hell isn’t going to call me back if there’s a problem after the job is done.

The Weekly Food: Pesto, Pork Chops, Steak & Cheese Burrito, Tomato Sandwiches….

The Weekly Interesting Fact: You can’t kill yourself by holding your breath.   (I guess I never thought about it, but it makes sense….)

Mandy and her husband Jeremy ~ October 17, 2009 Photo credit - Michael T. Henry Photography

While brainstorming about what to write blogs about, I wanted to find a way for my readers to get to know some of the awesome people who I know.  The best way I could come up with was an interview series.

This week’s interviews are all going to have a military connection.  Meet my friend Mandy.  Mandy’s military connection is through her husband Jeremy who gets deployed to Antarctica on a regular basis.   We’re going to hear a bit more about Jeremy in tomorrow’s blog.  So stay tuned for that 🙂

Name: Mandy Westervelt

Age: 30

Location: Upstate, NY

Relationship Status: Married

Occupation: SEFCU Member Specialist

What made you leave retail full-time to go into banking? I wanted to spend more time with my now husband.  Banking hours are not as good as they used to be, but better than working in a mall.

Why don’t you subscribe to social networking sites such as Facebook or Twitter? I don’t want to be part of the cult.  I just don’t have the time to update and check the sites all the time.  Those sites also seem a bit like stalking…if someone wants to invite me anywhere  or ask me how I am, they can contact me in real life.

What’s it like being married to someone in the military that gets deployed on a regular basis? It sucks!  Unfortunately, it comes with loving the man.  He is a wonderful man with a great job even though it causes me to be alone 3 months every year.

You work in a shoe store, just how crazy are women about their shoes? Most are not, they just appreciate shoes.  The worst is the people who do not appreciate shoes and return shoes after wearing them.  That is wrong-read the return policy!

What about men? Most men are clueless about shoes and they will bring me their pants and I pick out their shoes for them.  A few can pick out their own shoes, and most the time, they are gay.

What’s your favorite video game? All time would be the classic Tetris.  Lately, it has been Pet Vet for the Wii.  I didn’t think I would get into it at first, but the game is addicting.

You just got married this past October.  What was the most challenging part of planning your wedding? Dealing with my reception hall.  They had a wedding planner when I booked the place, and she left a year before my wedding and I had to make all the contacts after that point.

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop? I’m a sucker, not a licker.  🙂

Do you have any questions for Mandy?
