So as usual I'm late to the ABC party, but thought I would join in anyway. Especially since I am procrastinating and really should be packing for Hawaii. Even though I love to travel, I hate to pack. I really hate to pack for "hot weather" vacations since you seem to need so much more clothes. Why is that? Anyway, without further adieu the ABC's of me!
A. Age: 33 - gasp! When did that happen? And I'm only 2 months away from 34. Time to start dusting off the 34 Things list...
B. Bed size: Twin. Long story and hopefully soon I will upgrade.
C. Chore you hate: So many chores to choose from. I think anything to do with the bathroom I absolutely loathe.
D. Dogs: Eh, they are fine, much better than cats! I love my parents' dog (Chloe, any dog pics on the blog are usually of her), and I don't mind my sister's dogs. Or some of my friends' dogs. But overall, I'm just not an animal person.
E. Essential start to your day: Breakfast of some sort. I really can't skip breakfast. And lately I've been trying to be good about taking my vitamins first thing.
F. Favorite color: It was blue for the longest time but then it became green. I rebelled against pink when I was younger but now I have embraced pink.
G. Gold or silver: Silver
H. Height: 5’8” - I have finally accepted it. I desperately wanted to be 5'9" but it just wasn't in the cards.
I. Instruments you play: I used to play flute once upon a time.
J. Job title: What do I want it to be? Princess of the WORLD! Ha, just kidding. Tax Manager or something like that. I feel uncomfortable with my title, but that's a post for another time.
K. Kids: Hmm, I would have answered this one definitely yes but as I am nearing 34 I'm starting to wonder if it is in the cards for me. I have fantastic "nieces and nephews" and I've always thought about adopting. So we'll see - you never know what God's plan is - although I'd really like to know!
L. Live: About 20 minutes from downtown Seattle
M. Mom’s name: Mum, Mummy, Mommy, Mom or Teresa
N. Nicknames: Em, Emmy, Yemmy - I don't really have a proper nickname.
O. Overnight hospital stays: Fourth grade for dehydration among other things
P. Pet peeve: Another one I can list several things but talking on your phone in the bathroom just gets me every time. Or starting to write a check after the clerk gives you your total - I mean really? Is the date changing or the store's name? Or your name for that matter?
Q. Quote from a movie: From Anne of Green Gables: "Twenty pounds of brown sugar" or "Anne Shirley, what in heck are you doing out here? Fishing for lake trout." From Pride & Prejudice: "Mr. Darcy!" From The Rock: "Welcome to the Rock" or "How did you get out of your cell?" From Indiana Jones: "If you are a Scottish Lord, I am Mickey Mouse!" I like this game - I could go on and on!
R. Right or left handed: Right. And do I know my right from my left? No. I have to write in the air to figure out my right and make an L with my fingers to figure out my left.
S. Siblings: 1 Sister, 1 Brother (both younger)
T. Time you wake up: I'd like to wake up at 6:15 on weekdays, but lately it has slipped to 6:30
U. Underwear: Hanes
V. Vegetables you dislike: Brussel Sprouts, Green Beans (I was never so happy when I figured out I was allergic to green beans)
W. What makes you run late: I hate being late. Traffic. Random odds and ends that I think I have time for but I don't.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Teeth, ankle, leg, knee
Y. Yummy food you make: I'm not a cook, although I can make a decent fajita/stir-fry concoction
Z. Zoo- favorite animal: Tigers, Bears & Elephants
Play along, if you'd like!
