i don't typically do things like this, but i've seen it around the blogosphere and it looked kind of fun.
a. area code: well, we have three in houston actually. (713), (281), and (832). my cell starts with (281). you can guess the rest.
b. bed size: queen. my california king-sized bed is still at my parents' house.
c. chore you hate: hmm, well i actually enjoy cleaning. i'm kind of an organized clean freak. but i guess i have to say, i hate scrubbing pots and pans.
d. dog's name: bailey! but she will also respond to: bailey boo, little nugget, nugget head, bat girl, boo bear, coo coo, sugar bear, love bug, ratdog, bug catcher.
e. essential "start of the day" item: this isn't really an "item," per se, but prayer. i have to begin my day in prayer. after that, homemade banana bread!
f. favorite color: hmm, it depends on what it is. i'm always drawn toward the color turquoise, though i have nothing turquoise in my house other than clothes.
g. gold or silver: i like both, but i primarily wear silver.
h. height: 5'4" but i wear heels a lot, so i look taller. at least i think i look taller?
i. instruments you play: umm, does tapping my pen on my desk count?
j. job: i'm a lobbyist. my official title is "deputy director of government affairs." still confused about what a lobbyist is or does? read this article written by a mentor friend of mine. i recommend reading the article even if you do already know. it's good stuff.
k. kids: just one little fur baby. i plan on having kids one day, though.
l. living arrangements: in a condo, with my little fur nugget.
m. mom's name: it starts with an "S."
n. nickname: oh, geez i have a ton, and i can't really tell you all of them, but here's some... mer, mer bear, m, moody, moody padoody, merry mulberry, princess, doll, cheerleader cheerleader, sissy.
o. overnight hospital stay: quite a few times, actually. once for knee surgery and twice for getting this weird virus and had to be quarantined for six days. hospitals are no stranger to my family with as many health issues as my mom and little sister have. a lot of nights have been spent sleeping at the hospital while my mom was there. never fun.
p. pet peeve: where do i begin?? being lied to, lateness, rude drivers, bad table manners.
q. quote from movie: i don't necessarily have a favorite, but i always find myself saying, "you're killing me smalls." (name that movie.)
r. righty or lefty: righty.
s. siblings: two - a brother (18 years old) and a sister (11 years old). (i actually grew up with five older brothers. long story. maybe for another day, but probably not.)
t. time you wake up: 6:45 a.m. then i hit snooze a few times.
u. underwear: underwear? isn't that a little too personal??
v. vegetables you dislike: i have to be in the mood for veggies, but i like most of them. well, i hate onions (is that a vegetable?) and black-eyed peas.
w. ways or reasons you are late: i'm typically on time, surprisingly. i'm a very punctual person. but if i am late, it's usually because i overslept or traffic.
x. x-rays: umm, tons. too many to count. i've had a lot of broken bones, and i played sports my entire life. college athletics lead to lots of x-rays.
y. yummy food you make: banana bread!!
z. zoo animals you like: penguins. i love watching the wittle penguins swim all around. i would love to steal one, as a matter of fact.
