ABCs of Me(me)
I like to open NaBloPoMo with an about-me type of thing each year since it's the month that creates the most opportunity for new people to arrive on my blog. I got this meme from the fantastic Miss Grace.
A - Age: 29
B - Bed size: Queen. Sometimes I wish we had a king just so there was more room for the dog and the kid.
C - Chore you hate: I cannot stand cleaning the bathroom.
D - Don’t eat: Anything made from pigs
E - Essential start your day item: Splashing cold water on my face
F - Favorite board game: Clue
G - Gold or Silver: silver
H - Height: 5’5
I - Instruments you play: I took many years of piano lessons, but I'm quite out of practice.
J - Job title: science geek (Okay, not really. But my actual job title is a little too google-able.)
K - Kid(s): Nico, 9 1/2 months
L - Love or lust: Both, thanks.
M - Mom’s name: Carol
N - Nicknames: Girl
O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: None
P - Pants or pantyhose: Pants. I threw away my last pair of pantyhose in college and vowed never to buy another pair.
Q - Famous Movie Quote: "I killed the president of Paraguay with a fork. How have you been?"
R - Right or left handed: Right
S - Sibling(s): One sister, age 24
T - Time you wake up: Nico wakes me up anywhere between 3:30 and 4:30 AM to eat every morning, but then we go back to sleep until somewhere between 6:00 and 6:30. He doesn't believe in sleeping in, so even on my days off we're usually out of bed by 7:00.
U - Underwear: Ugh. I still can't fit into my pre-pregnancy unders, so I'm still wearing my post-C-section granny panties. So embarrassing.
V - Vegetable favorite: Cooked carrots
W - Ways you run late: I'm late a lot. I tend to underestimate travel time, or getting-kid-into-carseat time.
X - X-rays you’ve had: Teeth
Y - Yummy food you make: I bake cookies and banana bread and cheesecakes.
Z - Zoo favorite: Hmmmm...I really like the otters at our zoo. And the bats.
