A-Z and all about me.

June 5, 2011

This meme has been floating around blogland recently, but the other day dana at craftyminx posted hers and I thought I’d play along. (I was shocked at how many answers we had that were similar!) I think you are supposed to post some cute picture of yourself when you do these kinds of things, but I’ll have you know I just spent about 15 minutes going through all the photos on our computer from this entire year and I didn’t find a single one of myself that I liked. Pathetic. I seriously need to do something about that. In the meantime, enjoy this pic of my only favorite umbrella.

A. Age: 28 , though since I hit 26 I have to do mental math to remind myself how old I am.
B. Bed size: Queen with LOTS of pillows.  Well, one for Scott, four for me.
C. Chore that you hate: Dishes.  I hate dishes.  Thankfully Scott picks up my slack in that department.
D. Dogs: Allergic, and to cats, and most things that grow in fields.
E. Essential start to your day: Getting enough sleep… I usually need about 10 hours.
F. Favourite color: Pink — (speaking of, National Pink Day and my blogiversary and Pink Week are coming up at the end of this month. Yay!)
G. Gold or Silver: I prefer silver/white gold, though I do have a few pieces of yellow “gold” jewelry I’ve thrifted recently
H. Height: 5 feet eight and three quarter inches.
I. Instruments you play: I started taking piano lessons at age five and inherited my great grandpa’s piano about 5 years ago.  I also played percussion/drums/all the cool loud stuff when I was younger.
J. Job title: Trophy Wife and Mama to my little Creampuff
K. Kids: One almost 2.5 year old who loves to carry an umbrella (and a purse and two babies and a book and a backpack) on the walk to our car.
L. Live: 1300 sq. foot condo with no garage, no outside storage, no yard, but thankfully, no stairs.
M. Mother’s name: Gretel
N. Nicknames: I keep trying to get people to call me Princess, but so far it’s not working out.
O. Overnight hospital stays: Just when Creamie was born.  I’ve had a remarkably healthy life.
P. Pet peeve: This could be a whole post… but we’ll just stick with the fact that facebook doesn’t recognize the word “facebook” and always gives you that red squiggly line because it is spelled incorrectly.  That’s just bad marketing.
Q. Quote from a movie: “Take it Back!  If I wanted something your thumb had touched I’d eat your ear.” (Actually everything from Arrested Development is pretty quote worthy. Greatest show ever.)
R. Right or left handed: Right, but I could have been left, I am left footed and can hit a baseball and mini golf from both sides.
S. Siblings: Two brothers, two sisters, I am the perfectly well adjusted middle child.
T. Time you wake up: about 3 minutes after Creamie does.  Which is sometime between 8:30 and 9:00 am… sometimes later, but rarely earlier, bless her!
U. Underwear: There is nothing on earth worse than an ill fitting pair of underwear.
V. Vegetable you hate: My sisters and I used to do everything we could to kill my moms asparagus plants.  We doused some with gas, let the dog pee on others, accidentally pulled a few out… but I don’t so much mind it now.  I do, however, very much mind seafood.  I don’t want to eat food that lives in the same water it poops in.  Gross.
W. What makes you run late:  Not being able to decide what to eat for breakfast.  It’s important, don’t laugh.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: teeth, my wrist (not broken, just badly sprained)
Y. Yummy food that you make: I love roasted turkey and homemade bread.  I also make a mean chocolate chip cookie.
Z. Zoo animal: I love to watch baby animals (particularly elephants) but I if I could be one it would be a flamingo.  They are graceful and pink and have beautiful long skinny legs.

I just put the finishing touches on Scott’s quilt (that I “gave” him for his birthday last September!) and I’ll share pictures tomorrow.  Hope you had a good weekend!

    Wow, we have even more in common….allergies, playing the piano since a young age, and being exactly 5′ 8 3/4 “. I love it. 🙂

    Fun! I should do this. Except that would mean I would have to actually blog. I decided to sew tonight instead :). You will love the skirt I am making 🙂

    yay! It took me forever to find a photo too. I wanted something silly, but I just ended up having to use a headshot I had to send to a magazine instead. When is this pink day and pink month you speak of? I never know when these fun holidays are until it’s too late.
