ABCs Of Me
(A) Age: I’ll be 31 on St. Patrick’s Day.
(B) Bed Size: Queen. King would be lovely, but we bought fancy grown-up furniture so we can’t up size.
(C) Chore You Hate: Any and all. I’m a pathetically useless housewife.
(D) Dogs? None, but if we lived somewhere with a yard we would most likely have a lab.
(E) Essential Start Your Day Item: Tea. Specifically English Breakfast.
(F) Favourite Color: Blue.
(G) Gold or Silver? I like the look of silver, but it gives me a rash. Platinum is too expensive so all of my jewelry is white gold.
(H) Height: 5ft 6-1/2in (I don’t actually know if that 1/2″ is legit, but I’ll claim it).
(I) Instruments You Play: None. Took piano and flute lessons in school and could play the recorder with my nose (probably still can).
(J) Job Title: Mum. Also part-time shipper receiver, but I seriously only stick around there for the discount.
(K) Kids: One 3-1/2 year old.
(L) Live: Vancouver-ish, British Columbia, Canada.
(M) Mom’s Name: Mum. Or Shirley, but I have no reason to call her that.
(N) Nicknames: Like I’m giving you that ammunition.
(O) Overnight Hospital Stays? Yes. 4 nights when Spud was born. They didn’t kick us out because he had jaundice.
(P) Pet Peeve: Phrases like “my bad.”
(Q) Quote from a Movie: Most of the movies I watch now are for kids so I’ll go with Spud’s favourite of the moment: “No tires, just gas” – Lightning McQueen. He says it as he runs around the house.
(R) Right or Left Handed? Right.
(S) Siblings: One older brother.
(T) Time You Wake Up? Whenever the short tyrant does. A few nights ago that was at 3:30am.
(U) Underwear: Yes. Usually comfortable, but known to wear uncomfortable ones if I’m dressing up – VPL and all that…
(V) Vegetable You Dislike: Artichokes, avocado (like only in sushi), zucchini. Probably more, but can’t think of them… oh wait, eggplant.
What Makes You Run Late: Genetics and Spud.
(X) X-Rays You’ve Had Done: Dental. Regular check ups and when I had my wisdom teeth removed.
(Y) Yummy Food You Make: Mac and cheese from scratch, apple crisp, banana bread, snails.
(Z) Zoo, Favourite Animal: Any baby animal or the cute ones like chinchillas, koalas and polar bears.
