Today was reading up on blogs and came across an old post on The Nearsighted Owl. Rachele did a list of her A to Z. I read through it and thought it was a great way for me to share some more info about myself. A list of facts is way quicker to read than a huge paragraph.
Presenting my A to Z. Hope y'all enjoy it.
A. Age: 28
B. Bed size: We have a queen size bed and sometimes it feels like a twin. I toss and turn a lot. Having the cat sleep beside me or at my feet is nice but constricting.
C. Chore that you hate: I hate putting away anything . Oh and folding clothes. i can do a ton of laundry, dishes, clean the toilet, even yard work but putting the dishes and clothes away will take me forever.
D. Dogs: I like visiting dogs but I'm a born cat lady. One of the earliest photos of me is at sic months old holding a cat in my stroller.
E. Essential start to your day: If I want natural energy I'll drink some orange juice. If I need a burst of energy coffee it is.
F. Favorite color: It's a tie between red and black. I've always liked red but black can be sexy and flattering.
G. Gold or Silver: I like light colored metals: white gold,silver, stainless steel. I prefer silver just because to me yellow gold seems so gauche. I grew up around people who would have gold plated teeth and decked in gold jewelry. I just seemed so tacky to me.
H. Height: 5’6"I always felt I should be 5'8" though.
I. Instruments you play: I don't know how to play any instrument. The school I grew up in didn't really encourage musical learning. That and there wasn't much money in the budget for that.Too bad. I always wanted to learn the piano or violin.
J. Job title:I'm presently a stay-at-home wife. I have been a forklift driver, a delivery driver, hay bucker, cashier, manager and secretary. I wore a lot of hats when I was working for my father.
K. Kids: Just Ridley, our handsome cat child.
L. Live: We live in Douglas County Nevada. Rural but at least we got a Super Wal-Mart.
M. Mother’s name: Gloria. She was born on Ash Wednesday and my grandmother wanted to name her Cinderella but felt it would cause her too much trouble.
N. Nicknames: My mom calls me Marien, and all lot of people call me guera (someone who is light complexioned) or Mari.
O. Overnight hospital stays: Nope. Although I have been to the ER very late at night.
P. Pet peeves: I dislike people who extreme coupon and don't share. Some of them donate their items to food banks or have a storage where people can take what they need. But the people that just hoard that stuff really make me sick. They don't need even use the stuff. To me it's almost gluttonous.
Q. Quote from a movie: "Hail to the king,baby." Army of Darkness.
R. Right or left handed: Right handed.
S. Siblings: I am the oldest of 5 kids. 2 younger brothers and 2 sisters. I also have 2 half-siblings that I'm 25 years older than.
T. Time you wake up: 7:00am. Time to get the hubby up and on the weekends usually before 9:30am. But 9 Ridley is wanting his wet food and making it very obvious that he is hungry.
U. Underwear: Oh, yes. I can't go commando. I feel weird if I do.
V. Vegetable you hate: I don't really think I hate any vegetable but lately I've been avoiding green beans. They make a weird noise when I chew.
W. What makes you run late: My husband and myself. I think I have the appropriate allocated time but sometimes it just slips away. The only time we have a schedule is on work days or trips otherwise it's all tentative.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: I've have the typical dental x-rays and chest x-rays. I contracted tuberculosis when I was a kid so whenever I get tested for Tb I test false positive. I guess will happen until I die.
Y. Yummy food that you make: I love to make pita bread. It makes the house smell so good and test great.
Z. Zoo animal: Big cats. I would love to own a big cat sanctuary someday.
