ABC’s, Easy as 123!

Yesterday was a long day packed with a full day at work, a workout, and then 2 different birthday parties…all on 4 hours of sleep that I blame on Wicked the night before.

Today I’ll be running around getting chores done (including an oil change) and packing up my gear to head to Tampa for the Gasparilla Half Marathon tomorrow. I will sub-2-hour this race. I will sub-2-hour this race. (If you keep saying it, it happens, right?)

Because I have no original ideas and I do everything that Michelle does, I will do the ABC’s of me.

A. Age: 34 (and my next birthday is a little too close for comfort – like Jm J Bullock)

(See, I bet none of you get that joke. THAT’S how old I am.)

B. Bed size: Queen (I want a King bad, though.)

C. Chore you hate: Dishes. We have a dish washer, but we wash dishes by hand because the hubs doesn’t think the dishwasher gets dishes clean enough. My mom always washes dishes by hand too, which I hate. And then I end up marrying the one man in the WORLD that doesn’t believe in dishwashers.

I’ll be doing these after I post this.

 D. Dogs: Is this a question? Or are you calling me a dog? Not cool, Survey. Not cool. If this is a question, I do not have a dog. They bite me and that makes me sad. I do have a bunny who is the sweetest thing on Earth.

E. Essential start to your day: Generally waking up starts my day. Otherwise, I think there is another issue at hand.

F. Favorite color: Dark green

G. Gold or silver: Silver. Although, I do have 2 partial gold teeth. If you see me lying dead on the side of the street. Go for my teeth. They’re worth it.

H. Height: 5’9

I. Instruments you play: Air guitar and Rock Band guitar

I also sing..terribly. And dress up like Avril Lavigne. But let’s not talk about that.

 J. Job title: Instructional Designer (For now, my job title seems to change a lot.)

K. Kids: None. And no plans for them.

L. Live: Orlando, FL  – but dream of moving West some day

M. Mom’s name: Susanne – with a S not a Z – she’s a trendsetter like that

N. Nicknames: P, and the hubs will call me Pooks. I have no clue where Pooks came from but it sounds funny when he says it

O. Overnight hospital stays: None. It’s really expensive there and I suggest a hotel instead.

P. Pet peeve: Toilet paper roll where the paper hangs from underneath, sprinklers on while it’s raining, littering (especially when people throw things from car windows)


Q. Quote from a movie: “I’m so hungry, I could eat the ass-end out of a dead rhino.” Gary Busey – Point Break 
Not inspirational, but often how I feel.

Why does this come up when you google Gary Busey?


R. Right or left handed: Right.

S. Siblings: 2 (much) older brothers  – they are about 13 and 15 years older than me. And yes, we have the same mom and dad. Well, I think we do, at least. Winking smile

Tim and I at the Cheesecake Factory in Long Beach or Redondo Beach. Some beach.

 I couldn’t find a picture quickly of me and my brother Tom, but I’m sure he’ll say the Cryptkeeper looks just like me.

T. Time you wake up: Weekdays @ 6:12 – the most possible sleep while still being able to take care of the bunny and make it to work on time.  On the weekends – as late as humanly possibly.

U. Underwear: Oh, I’d love some! Thanks!

V. Vegetables you dislike: Squash  (It always tricks me into thinking it’s a cucumber. But it’s not. Oh. It’s not.)

W. What makes you run late: Trying on 80 different outfits in the morning until I’m happy with one. 

(Side fact: When I was in elementary school, my mom used to give me a dime every morning that I didn’t cry over what outfit I wore. Eventually, I caught on and started picking out my outfits the night before. She caught on and stopped giving me dimes.)

X. X-Rays you’ve had: Teeth mostly. Probably my wrist when I broke it in Kindergarten.

Y. Yummy food you make: Cupcakes. Hubs also loves my Oreo Truffles.

Z. Zoofavorite animal: Meercats.

We got this pic at the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa. OMG. So cute. I want one! Meercat Manor makes me sad though because they’re always dying. I never recovered when Shakespeare didn’t return home.

There you have it! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and I hope to be back with a race review tomorrow and a recipe on Monday. Don’t worry, it’s an easy recipe. Don’t think I magically learned how to cook or anything.

So tell me, what’s YOUR pet peeve?

  1. I can’t stand it when people are late…biggest pet peeve I have!

  2. My mom married the other anti – dishwasher renegade. They just got a brand new amazing dishwasher that I’m super jealous of and my stepfather refuses to use it.

    You will get a sub 2 hour for sure! You will be awesome!

  3. Sara

    LOL, I can’t stop laughing at that Busey pic. So awesome…

  4. SQUASH? All squash, or just zucchini? I LOVE squash: acorn, spaghetti, butternut, carnival, hubbard…mmm.

    My pet peeve? whistling. It makes me angry.

    Good luck on your 1/2 mary!

  5. love that you added a picture of the toilet paper ha…i’ve definitely taken peoples rolls off and turned them around- i can’t stand it

  6. Your answers were cracking me up this morning! Thanks for that.

    I loathe when people ask dumb questions. (I qualify it as a ‘dumb question’ if it’s something they could easily have found out for themselves by being observant or using my bff Google as a learning tool.) Wow, this made me sound like a real mean person. I promise I’m not. Just don’t ask me a dumb question.

  7. T
