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.
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.
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.
