My ABC's

Remember those MySpace surveys that were ever-so-popular at one point in time? I definitely completed one too many of those. And, man, do I have some crazy MySpace stories (yes that was plural, and if you're lucky I'll share someday). So in the spirit of enjoying a blast from the past here's the latest survey that's been going around the blogosphere!

A. Age: 28
B. Bed size: Queen
C. Chore you hate: Cleaning the bathroom floor and shower drain. Hair that is not attached to a head makes me gag.
D. Dogs: None that I personally own. My family has a dog, Max, a chocolate lab that lives at our St. Thomas home.

Our dog lives here. I freeze my butt off in Chicago. This was clearly not well thought out.

E. Essential start to your day: Medically, I'm on this stupid new pill for hypothyroidism. I have to take it on an empty stomach, not eat for a half hour afterwards, and not take any vitamins/other meds for 4 hours. It has seriously messed with my morning routine.
F. Favorite color: I was always a purple girl. When I was four my birthday party theme was purple: purple presents, purple decorations, the whole she-bang. Guests even wore purple. It's still a fave, especially a rich aubergine.
G. Gold or silver: I love that yellow gold has come full circle. I'm into it for random accessories, but for classics (like my wedding band and engagement ring) I lean toward platinum/white gold.
H. Height: 5'9"
I. Instruments you play: None. Like, really none. I have tried the violin, flute, and piano. It has been established that I have no musical talent. When I was singing recently Mr. Fix-It also pointed out that I have no sense of something in my voice. I wish I remembered what he said because it was probably totally accurate.
J. Job Title: Marriage and Family Therapist.
Let's all enjoy this dramatic reenactment of my job.


L. Live: Chicago, IL
M. Mom’s name: Jane
N. Nicknames: Stan. Those of you who know my maiden name get it.
O. Overnight hospital stays: None. But I have had some fun tests. When I was a kid my acid reflux/academic anxiety was so bad doctors were suspicious I was having sleeping seizures that set off my vomiting in the morning. Testing ruled this out and we cut down on my apple juice consumption. I never did get over freaking out about good grades in school.
P. Pet peeve: I'm sure I have many. Poor self-care tops the list right now. Soap and water are not the luxuries in life, people! You can do it!
Q. Quote from a movie: I constantly quote movies and TV shows. I've got nothing for you right this second though, it has to be relevant.
R. Right or left handed: Right handed.
S. Siblings: Younger sister Julia.
T. Time you wake up: Around 7:30. However, my more recent discovery that the later I leave the better the traffic is, isn't helping my sleepy-in-the-morning tendencies.
U. Underwear: Thongs with tighter pants, cute bikinis with whatever else.
V. Vegetables you dislike: I have a serious love/hate relationship with spinach. I order it all the time - on pizza, in a sandwich, omlet, stir-fry...but a heap of steamed spinach on a plate just gives me the heebie jeebies.
W. What makes you run late: The internet. I can definitely get lost/distracted reading or blogging something and lose track of time.
X. X-Rays you've had: Aside from dental x-rays, I had one of my foot in college. I had gotten into running and was having a lot of weird pain as I would move through one part of my stride. The x-ray was inconclusive regarding diagnosing the problem but it was discovered I am missing a bone in my foot. Honestly, I'm not surprised, my feet are creepy flexible.

not my foot.

Y. Yummy food you make: My culinary skills are a work in progess. Nothing I make is especially bad, but I don't have a specialty yet.
Z. Zoo- favorite animal: The Polar Bears were always a fave when I was a kid. I'm not a huge zoo animal type person, but they always were pretty cute. I was pretty upset to hear that Knut died, though.
Care to share your ABCs or any other random fun facts?


  1. Oh man, hair not attached to my head also makes me gag! Yech. I was going to go on to tell a story, but I nearly just gagged at my desk (at work!) so I'll stop there, ha.
