ABCs of Me

I've been seeing this A LOT today in bloggy world.  I'm not usually a bandwagon jumper, but thought "hey - why not?" for this one :)  Here's the ABCs of me:

(A) - Age: 34

(B) - Bed Size: Queen.

(C) - Chore You Hate: Bathrooms.  Unless changing poopy diapers counts...then that one. :D

(D) - Dogs: 2.  One Bassett Lab and one Bassett/Corgi Lab

(E) - Essential Start Your Day Item: Workout.  My day just doesn't go right if I don't move right away.

(F) - Favorite Colour: Sunshine Yellow.   I also love Midnight Blue.   Fun Fact: I am deathly allergic to the colour pink. 

(G) - Gold or Silver: Silver, white gold, any white metal, really...my wedding band is titanium and platinum

(H) - Height: 5'9"

(I) - Instruments: I played Clarinet from 6th-12th grade and haven't touched one since.   I have a guitar that I pick up from time to time, but I'm not good.  I need lessons...

(J) - Job Title: Change Analyst

(K) - Kids: Identical Twin Girls, 21months

(L) - Live: Langdon, Alberta, Canada.

(M) - Mom's Name: Marilyn

(N) - Nicknames: Cor (creative, I know...I didn't think it up).  A former coworker used to call me HardCore for no apparent reason.

(O) - Overnight Hospital Stays: when my twins were born and when my tonsils were removed in 8th grade

(P) - Pet Peave: People who walk in front of you and then stop suddenly without checking if anyone is behind them.

(Q) - Quote from a Movie: From Breakfast At Tiffany's
Holly Golightly: Well, when I get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany's. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that'd make me feel like Tiffany's, then - then I'd buy some furniture and give the cat a name!

(R) - Right or Left Handed: Right.

(S) - Siblings: One - younger brother

(T) - Time You Wake Up: The alarm is set for 5:30.  Whether I haul myself up at that time depends on if I've been up in the middle of the night tending to a baby or not :)

(U) - Underwear: For running I like Patagonia

(V) - Vegetables You Dislike: Brussel Sprouts.  Hubby loves 'em.  I think they smell and taste like feet.  Though, I will admit - tonight one of the bloggers I follow talked about rubbing them with maple syrup and salt and then roasting them and I thought for a moment that it might be worth trying.  Probably won't though.  Ew.  Feet Balls.

(W) - What Makes You Run Late: Twins.   I used to be chronically early for everything.  Since I had 2 babies, I'm usually running through the door at the last minute...

(X) - X-Ray's You've Had Done: toes, feet, ankles, knees, hips, hand, neck, spine.  I've probably had more that I can't remember right now.  I used to be pretty accident prone in my younger days.  Never broke anything but my nose, though.  Twice.

(Y) - Yummy Foods You Make: I make a killer meatless chili.   mmmmmmm.  One day I'll share the recipe...

(Z) - Zoo, Favorite Animal: Giant Panda.   I plan to one day do a "Panda's Across America" tour and hit all of the zoos that have Panda programs.   I also really want to go to Woolong Reserve in China on a volunteer vacation so I can work with them.
