Mom: If all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you do it too?
Me: Well – if it’s because they were all bungee-jumping or something, I’d probably give it a try.
Yes, I’m always jumping on the bandwagon. So without further adieu, here are the ABC’s of Me!
(A) Age: 27
(B) Bed Size: Queen…used to have a King but our tiny room cannot accommodate it!
(C) Chore You Hate: Putting things away. I have no problem doing laundry – just HATE putting it away. Same with dishes – cleaning & rinsing is no problem – just HATE putting them away, etc.
(D) Dogs? Of course – the “other man” in my relationship – Rocky!
awww, he looked so much cuter as a baby! But don’t tell him I said that!!!
(E) Essential Start Your Day Item: breakfast! Some people don’t like to eat first thing in the morning – I can’t get started without it!
(F) Favorite Color: Blue
(G) Gold or Silver? White Gold
(H) Height: 5’4”
(I) Instruments You Play: guitar (kinda – just for fun)
(J) Job Title: Research Scientist & College Lecturer (who am I kidding? Those are just euphemisms…..I’m a Grad Student, ugh!)
(K) Kids: maybe one day.
(L) Live: Tucson, Arizona……miss my Austin roots & my previous South Florida residence by the beach!
(M) Mom’s Name: Melonie
(N) Nicknames: Ash
(O) Overnight Hospital Stays? Nope
(P) Pet Peeve: People who think their time is more valuable than mine
(Q) Quote from a Movie: “Worrying is like a rocking chair. It’ll give you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.” – Van Wilder
(R) Right or Left Handed? Righty
(S) Siblings: oh buddy, I got 1 brother and 1 sister that are full biological siblings. I’ve also got 4 step-brothers. And 8 nieces and nephews (and 1 on the way!) When I was younger & living at home I only got along with my brother (the one “bio” brother). But since being adults, I’ve always gotten along best with my sister.
(T) Time You Wake Up? Sometime between 6am and 7am, depending on the day.
(U) Underwear: I mix it up: boyshorts, bikinis, thongs, lacy things, cotton things, silky things, etc. I like the variety.
(V) Vegetable You Dislike: Hate cucumber (except in sushi), squash, and beets
What Makes You Run Late: the hubbs! Usually it’s the girl that takes forever to get ready – our relationship is opposite! I’ll be ready in 15 minutes and he’s still picking clothes & changing for the umpteenth time!
(X) X-Rays You’ve Had Done: only Teeth! I’ve never had a broken bone (*knock on wood*) so my only X-rays have been normal teeth scan things.
(Y) Yummy Food You Make: Just check out my recipe page! That pumpkin chocolate chunk bread is one of my favorites, but the blueberry muffins were delicious too!
(Z) Zoo, Favorite Animal: fascinated by the pimates! Any of ‘em!
Today has been BORING! I’ve just been running errands like a crazy woman, while Chris has been cleaning the house & doing laundry. Last night we went to a poker tournament, lost pretty early, and hit up downtown, where we coincidentally ran into some people from my school. Good times. I think tonight we’re going to be more low key, maybe stay in and watch a movie. We’ll see.
And remember when the bro-in-law had to rush back to Texas unexpectedly? Well he’s coming back again – tomorrow. I know a lot of people would not be excited for their brother-in-law to come crash on their couch for who knows how long, with no end in sight. I guess we’re just different. The bro-in-law has lived with us before and we all get along well. Plus, he really pitches in around the house & tries to be a good house guest, which is always appreciated. Sure, I don’t want him on our couch forever, but if business keeps going like it is now, he’ll be able to get a place of his own in no time!
