ABC's of Me. All You Possibly Want To Know and Then Some.

Stole this from someone, somewhere (okay, probably multiple people if we are being completely honest) but I don't remember at this point, because I typed it out many days ago and thought I could use it sometime when my brain was tired, like on a Friday (after I actually worked 5 days in a row)...

A - Age: 25

B - Bed size: King, and thank goodness, because I am a really light sleeper so I need the space to keep from waking up every hour.

C - Chore you hate: Cooking. But only when I haven't been to the grocery store and have a lot going on with school. I like it more when I have time to think about it and work on it. 

D - Dog's name: Gustus Augustus is my parents dog. He is the closest thing I have to a dog. He is a quality animal, right Daddy? and he has lots of other names but Gus is his "official name". Handsome's parents keep his childhood dog named Molly. 

E - Essential start your day item: Toothpaste.

F - Favorite color: Green probably or white. 

G - Gold or Silver or Platinum: I like silver. I have white gold I like also and I like rose gold, but I don't own any. Not big on yellow gold and I don't own any plantinum.

H - Height: 5'5"... okay, okay, I'll tell the total truth. I'm 5 feet 4 and 3/4 inches.

I - Instruments you play: I have played the flute and piano, but it has been a while. I more recently played handbells and would play them now if I could find a choir that needed a player and that practiced at a time when I'm not in class. 

J - Job title: Oh, I'm unemployed. Or maybe more accurately, I am a student. 

K - Kid(s): Not yet. We still haven't even been married a whole year!

L - Living arrangements: ? What does this mean? I have a husband and we have an apartment. 

M - Mom's name: I call her Mom.

N - Nicknames: KaTee. 

O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: Junior year of high school. Something like dehydration, that thankfully wasn't appendicitis. And it was several nights, if I remember correctly. 

P - Pet Peeve: Oh that would be the sound of nail clippers doing what they were created to do. 

Q - Quote from a movie: 
Kathleen Kelly: I love daisies. 
Joe Fox: You told me. 
Kathleen Kelly: They're so friendly. Don't you think daisies are the friendliest flower?

---You've Got Mail.

"The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf, low-fat, non-fat, etc. So people who don't know what the hell they're doing or who on earth they are can, for only $2.95, get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self: Tall. Decaf. Cappuccino." 
--- Joe Fox, You've Got Mail

R - Right handed or left handed: Right

S - Siblings: 1 brother 

T - Time you wake up: Hmm, 7:11 a.m. lately. 

U- Underwear: Pardon? If I have ever heard of a question that crossed the line, this would be it.  

V - Vegetable you dislike: Well I very much dislike the smell of brustlesprouts, but I can't say I have actually tried them. One roommate during college made them at least once a week for a year... that was a rough time in our friendship. ;)

W - Ways you run late: Not sure. Usually I like to take everything I could possibly need with me, so that I'm not cold, or having sinus issues, or bleeding from my cuticles from my incessant need to mess with them. So I usually am thinking about getting a jacket, on my way out of the door... and then getting cuticle nippers or Advil or Zyrtec, or my Bible for church, or a pair of socks in case my feet get cold when I am studying. Sometimes I can anticipate all of this before I am on my way out of the door (like if its for something I absolutely cannot be late for or if it is something very routine, like going to school every day of the week) but for something like church, then I usually get up early enough to leisurely get ready while Handsome is getting ready and then I will remember about a million things I need on our way out of the door. 

X - X-rays you've had: I think mouth / teeth x-rays are it. I had an MRI once, but that is beyond the scope of this question. 

Y - Yummy food you make: I'm just gonna go with Tacos. 

Z - Zoo favorite: Polar Bears, even if they shouldn't be there. And I really like big cats and elephants too. 

So I'm here. And I'm still writing,

you should count Max as a pet! He counts you as a parent!

That's a fun one! And also, you're going to have to explain the whole cuticle thing, because I am perplexed.

Oh I LOVED this post! I HATE the sound of nail clipping! Q has to go in the bathroom and turn on the water in order to clip. Yuck.
