I know you’ve all missed the lists I so lovingly compile for you each week. And I’d so hate to let you down. That would break my damn heart. Know that I could be writing about any number of things that happened this weekend (i.e.: watching half of an absolutely atrocious movie, five hours of deep soul-saving chats with oldest friend Charlie, manicure, naps and subsequent sleeping travails) but instead, I will fulfill your daily requirement of listage. Enjoy!
A â€“ An advantage you have â€“ I am generally content hanging out on my own and don’t often need the company of others. Sometimes, it’s nice to have but as long as I have my internets, I’m happy.
B â€“ Blue or brown eyes â€“ Hazel, thankyouverymuch! Mom called them “shit colored” (thanks, Mom!) but they are browish/green depending on how much I cry.
C â€“ Chore you hate â€“ I despise beyond any thought imaginable cleaning the kitchen. HATE IT.
D â€“ Dadâ€™s name â€“ James but he went by Jim
E â€“ Essential start of your day â€“ Coffee
F â€“ Favorite color â€“ Blue
G â€“ Greatest thing youâ€™ve ever done that made you feel really good â€“ Passing the Series 7 (stock broker’s test) which was so hard for this non-linear chick. There are many things I’ve done that I’m proud of but from a professional point of view, this one wins easily.
H â€“ Habit you have â€“ Sleeping with my sound machine on the “rain” setting.
I â€“ Issue you hate that the world tries to make you pursue â€“ Like Gal, I don’t understand Middle East issues and I know that things are sucky there for many reasons but I just can’t wrap my head around all of it.
J â€“ Job title â€“ Branch Support Manager – bogus title because Head Fax Chick and pretzel/candy supplier didn’t sound as professional
K â€“ Kohls or Target â€“ Kohl’s – I usually find really good deals there.
L â€“ Living arrangements â€“ For real or in my fantasy life? :-)
M â€“ Music you like â€“ What’s that guy’s name? You know, the one I like alot? Gosh, can’t recall it now. But, him.
N – Nicknames â€“ When I lived in Richmond VA, my online screen name was Northern Girl and everyone called me Norty. A previous boyfriend and I called each other Weez but I can’t even remember why now. My family calls me Lis. And just for good measure, I’ll admit to being called Dolt and Moron but I’m (pretty) sure it’s said with affection. (heh)
O â€“ Overnight hospital stay â€“ Last one was for my surgery in 1997. I have a rather strong aversion to being in a hospital as a patient.
P â€“ Pet Peeve â€“ Where do I start? People who cannot spell “lose” correctly and spell it “loose” – that makes my skin crawl. (Sad, I know)
Q â€“ Quote that you like most â€“ “Take a minute just to breathe and think of everything you wanted and what you got instead.”
R â€“ Right or left handed â€“ Depends on what I’m doing but I am pretty right hand dominant.
S â€“ Siblings â€“ Nyet but I do have a fabulous double cousin and that’s pretty damn close.
T â€“ Time you wake up â€“. Whenever Sophie decides it’s time for me to feed her treats. (Usually 630-7am)
U â€“ Underwear â€“ Yes and they are fresh each and every day!
V â€“ Vegetable you dislike â€“ cooked carrots. Blargh.
W â€“ What makes you run late â€“ For work? The fact that I’d rather stay at home is a big one. :)
X â€“ X-rays youâ€™ve had â€“ last ones were for boobies and teeth.
Y â€“ Yummy food you make â€“ Hmmm, I don’t cook a lot. I do make some kick ass potato salad, though.
Z â€“ Zoo animal â€“ I have always liked the monkey cages.
