Approximately 78.2 percent of the blogs I read currently have the ABCs posted so I thought I would join in the fun. So here’s a ton of unimportant stuff about me. Twenty-six things in alphabetical order:
Age: 33 years old
Bed size: Double. It is cozy.
Chore you hate: Emptying the dishwasher. Terrible.
Dogs: They are sort of like people to me in that I generally don’t like them until I get to know them a bit. And then they are usually ok.
Essential start to your day: Hitting the snooze button at least three times.
Favorite color: Black.
Gold or Silver: White gold.
Height: Seven-foot-three. That is a lie. I am five-foot-two on a good day.
Instruments you play: None, really. I played violin for about five years and was just as bad on the day I stopped as the day I started. I have a mandolin that I sometimes bust out when Bill is away – don’t want to make his ears bleed.
Job title: NICU social worker.
Kids: None the last time I checked.
Live: Philadelphia, PA.
Mom’s name: Joann but no one calls her that. My MomMom wanted to name her Joy but back in the day the Catholic church required that you name your kid after a saint. So on paper she is Joann but in reality she is Joy.
Nicknames: Buckwheat. Pony. Answered to Scrappy more than Laurie for about 8 years.
Overnight hospital stays: Never as a patient and only once otherwise – last year when I got snowed in at work.
Pet peeve: Snoring. I will put a pillow over your head if you do it.
Quote from a movie: "Play as well as you can." -- Harold and Maude
Right- or left-handed: Right-handed.
Siblings: One brother, Josh. He is five years younger than I am and runs five times faster than I do. He runs 80 miles a week just for something to do and never races.
Time you wake up: Too late to be on time and too early to feel like I got a good sleep.
Underwear: Um, yes. And when it is cold out I wear running tights under actual pants to work because my office is amazingly freezing.
Vegetables you dislike: Beets. They taste like dirt.
What makes you run late: Mornings.
X-Rays you’ve had: Several when I broke my arm when I was four and then a ton a few years later when I fell off my bike and knocked out a bunch of teeth.
Yummy food you make: Home-made pasta.
Zoo favorite animal: Rhinos.
That is all.
