A bit of me from A to Z

Monday, February 06, 2012

Ask me one thing that I always have in my bag and the answer will inevitably be a notebook for my listmaking.  Whether it's for groceries, blog ideas, or goals, I'm always making little lists to help keep myself organized.  (I have an embarrassingly terrible short term memory and will literally forget everything if I don't write it down!)  Today, while having my own little whimsical morning with a diet coke and my favorite blogs, I ran across Cam's third annual registration for 30 Days of Lists, and I immediately signed up!  (A craft project tailored specifically to an ocd listmaker like me...SUCCESS!)  It doesn't start till March, (which gives me time to create a pretty little journal to keep the list challenges in,) so I decided to start off a little early with one of those A to Z lists that I've been seeing on many of my favorite blogs.  Leave me the link if you create your own A to Z list or if you want to do the 30 days of lists challenge as well!!
So I look a little deranged...
 A. Age: 27
B. Bed size: Full. Fortunately, I'm one of the shortest people alive, but I'd love to  have a big kid's bed!
C. Chore that you hate: Dishes, but only when they've been sitting there for a while and you have to put your hands in the cold gross water...EW.  I HAVE to wash dishes as soon as I eat just to avoid it!
D. Dogs: They're the best.  Growing up I had 2 Scottish terriers, Wallie 1 and Wallie 2 (original...) Sugar the yellow lab, Cami (who's technically my brother's,) the black lab, and of course, my own precious nugget, Monty the beagle. 
E. Essential start to your day: Snooze button and Diet Pepsi.  Occasionally I will get up and do yoga or pilates, but normally only when Emilie makes me :)
F. Favourite color: Teal and canary yellow
G. Gold or Silver: Gold
H. Height: 5'2 and shrinking
I. Instruments you play: I poorly played the clarinet through high school and am learning to play the mandolin and guitar.  I really want to learn how to play the upright bass and uke.  Oh and I wail on a kazoo. 
J. Job title: Administrative Coordinator
K. Kids: I definitely want them in the future! (And I totally have a baby name list... for the FUTURE :)
L. Live: Currently Boston, MA but I'm ready for a new adventure soon...
M. Married: Nope, but I am obsessed with pretty weddings and have all sorts of ideas for my own someday!
N. Nicknames: Fearsy, Smash, and my mom calls me Ash Patch. (And she's the only one who could get away with that... I will kill anyone else who tries :)  
O. Overnight hospital stays: Not yet, but at the rate that I collide with stairs...who knows.
P. Pet peeve: Being late, people who lean on the pole in the subway so that no one else can hold on and people who play their music on the subway so that the rest of us have to listen along. (Really I could go on and on about the subway...)  And talking through the previews in movies, I love the previews!
Q. Quote from a movie: "I guess it comes down to a simple choice. Get busy living or get busy dying." Shawshank is literally the best movie ever made. 
R. Right or left handed: Lefty
S. Siblings: One little brother, Jonah, who's 23 (24 in 4 days!)
T. Time you wake up: Between 7 and 8 on weekdays, around 9 on weekends
U. Underwear: Spiderman.  (I'm really just not telling you. What kind of question is that?) 
V. Vegetable you hate: Beans. I literally loathe beans. 
W. What makes you run late: The train. The B line is the WORST. 
X. X-Rays you've had: teeth, ankle, chest....
Y. Yummy food that you make: Mexican food of any kind, and I make a mean meat sauce! 
Z. Zoo animal: The elephants!  And I love the shark tanks at aquariums... sharks are my favorites.
