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.


  1. Wow - I had a lot of the same answers as you (even our height is the same)! Although the first thing I do every morning isn't splash cold water on my face; I give the alarm clock the finger (true story). :)

  2. Does ANYONE wear pantyhose these days?

    I'm attempting this for the fifth year, too. All the best!

  3. I've been reading you for a while, but I don't know if I've commented before now.
    But I'm doing NaBloPoMo too, so I figured I'd pop over and give a hearty "hey good luck!".
    So, uh, yeah. Good luck!

  4. Do you wear tights? Or just never skirts? I got really into skirts when I was pregnant but then I had to work around the whole "maternity panty hose" thing which is worse than regular hose and that's when I got addicted to thigh high socks.

    Anyway! Hooray for nablopomo!

    And otters. I LOVE OTTERS.

  6. P&D - HAAA, that's awesome. I will have to try that next time I'm feeling sour about waking up.

    Cadiz - I think we "met" during our first NaBloPoMo. I can't believe it's been five years!

    Ginger - Thanks & good luck to you, too!

    Cheesefairy - I don't ever wear skirts. On the exceedingly rare occasion that I wear a dress of some kind, I just go bare-legged. I'm kind of picky about restrictive clothes anyway, so tights / hose / thigh socks are always uncomfortable. Viva la pants!
