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.
