ABC about ME ME ME

I have a BIG Greek test tomorrow.  So, the blog is getting some love.

My friend, Lindsee, was the first to do this yesterday...and then I found out that lots of people love Lindsee too, because my reader had lots of posts with people copying her.

So, here it is..Lindsey in ABC format...

A. Age: 26...savoring every last minute of it before the next birthday

B. Bed Size: Full...I'd be perfectly fine with a twin though because I don't move.

C. Chore that you hate: Dusting...or any kind of yardwork.  Thankfully, my roommate and I have a yard boy.  Who knows, one of these days we may just get a maid, too!

D. Dogs: None here, but one at my parents house named Maggie

E. Essential start to your day: Ok.  This is a little embarrassing.  Every morning, without fail, I start the day by saying "It's going to be a great day!" I've done it every day since my senior year of high school when our high school football coach encouraged us to do it.

F. Favorite color: Hmm...I LOVE color.  Blue is probably my all time favorite...just can't pair it with orange!

G. Gold or Silver:  Both.  Just not at the same time!

H. Height: 5'8'....technically it's almost 5'9", but I like 5'8" better

I. Instruments you play: The piano...but only the treble cleff and the French Horn.

J. Job Title: Sales Manager...and full time student

K. Kids: None of my own, but plenty that I would claim as my own!!

L. Live: Alabama.  Love this sweet state and my current home in Birmingham.

M. Mother's name: the same as my middle name...Robin

N. Nicknames: hmmm...the typical ones are Linds, Lindzi, Lindzers, Linrobsmi...but then you have the odd ones that I acquired through the years: Bob and Corn top that list.  I won't mention the millions that my younger sister has for me.

O. Overnight hospital stays: summer before first grade when I had pneumonia...lots of stories from that visit, let me tell ya!

P. Pep peeves: Most of them center around English grammar.  I just can't handle it when people misuse the words their/there/they're or your/you're!  I know spell check doesn't pick it up, but it's in the 2nd grade grammar book.  Maybe I'll do a post on that one day.

Q. Quote from a movie: I love movies.  Don't watch them nearly as much as I used to.  One of my old time favorites is Serendipity.  Lots of great quotes from that one, but here's one you can journal on: "You know the Greeks don't write obituaries.  They only asked one question after a man died.  "Did he have passion?"  Those Greeks...they were on to something.

R. Right or left handed: Both.  I write, eat, and throw left handed.  I bat, cut, and shoot a gun right handed.

S. Siblings: Two sisters.  One 4 years older.  One 4 years younger.  I am the quintessential middle child and am only now starting to get over my "middle child" syndrome.

T. Time you wake up: 5AM...usually without my alarm clock.  Though now that school has started and my naps have been removed, I will say that I often sleep right up to it.

U. Ultimate vacation: Greece.  Now that I'm taking some Greek, I'm trying to convince my parents that this would be a great way to "better my knowledge."

V. Vegetable you hate: I think I like, or can at least tolerate, them all...wait, no, I do not like beets.

W. What makes you run late: I subscribe to the adage of "if you're on time, you're late" and am often at least 5 minutes early.  Except for church.  Despite the fact that I can see the building from my front porch, I'm almost always at least 30 seconds late.

X. X-Rays you've had: My lungs.  See letter O

Y. Yummy food that you make: I don't cook near as much as I used to...with the roommate I have, it's not really necessary.  But, if needed, I can make pretty much anything.  My specialities are appetizers and desserts though.

Z. Zoo animal: Giraffe!  I'm also partial to the elephants and monkeys.

So there you have it...26 random thoughts about me.

That yard boy has been clutch....otherwise we'd live in a jungle. I'm still looking for a groupon for a made. The floor's looking preeeety dusty. Weekend project maybe?
