ABC... It's easy as 123... As simple as Do Re Mi... ABC... 123... Baby you and me!
Anyways, now that it's in your head too, I can move on. This post is a little chance for you to get to know me and my dirty secrets. Just kidding. I don't have any dirty secrets. And most of this is stuff you probably don't want to know but let's dive in anyways, shall we?
The ABC's of Me
The ABC’s of Me:
A. Age: 28 years old and getting better every day.
B. Bed size: I think it's a Queen or a Full. I can't really remember. What's a normal size?
C. Chore you dislike: Cleaning my bathroom. I hate every single aspect of it. As a matter of fact, I am writing this blog right now as an act of procrastination when I should be cleaning.
D. Dogs: I don't have any but I LOVE them! I had a puppy named Chips for 2 days but it didn't work out between us. His name was Chips because my cat's name is Fish and they were going to be buddies... Fish & Chips! Now I'm thinking that I should get another cat because Fish still needs a buddy and his or her name will be Chips too because c'mon, you have to admit that those names are kind of awesome.
E. Essential start to your day: Delicious and nutritious green monster. This typically consists of 1 frozen banana, a handful of frozen strawberries or cherries, a cup of water, a scoop of protein powder and 3 handfuls of spinach. Today, I mixed it up though because I didn't have any berries so I went with frozen peaches and pineapple instead and it was yum-o. It was like a tropical vacation in a glass. Except instead of laying on the beach, I was curled up in my chair. And instead of going to a luau later, I was going to the gym. Pretty much the same thing, really.
F. Favorite colors: Blue and Black. I know black is technically a "shade" not a color but don't get all bent out of shape about it. It's my blog so I'm bending the rules.
G. Gold or silver: Silver, hands down. Although, if someone walked up to me today and gave me a gold brick, I wouldn't say no.
H. Height: 5’6"ish or 5'7"ish. Let's say 5'6" and a half to be safe.
I. Instruments you play(ed): I played the trumpet in band back in grade school. Originally, I wanted to play the french horn. Yeah, I know. What kind of fourth grader requests the french horn? Unfortunately, the school crushed my french horn dreams by not offering that particular instrument. My next choice was secretly the flute. But I ended up choosing the trumpet because it was the band teacher's favorite instrument. Yeah, I know (again). I was a teacher's pet. I couldn't help it. It shames me to admit that. It didn't really work out so well for me though because I hated that trumpet. In fact, the teacher requested that I go to band camp one summer, which I promptly refused. I didn't want to be her favorite that badly. Instead, I left the trumpet at school that whole summer and forgot about it. My first day back, the teacher asked if I had practiced all summer and I lied and said yes. Then she pointed to my trumpet in the corner and said that it must've been hard to practice without the actual instrument. It was then that I knew the trumpet and I were not going to be together much longer. Also, one time, during a concert, I just held the trumpet up to my mouth and didn't play it at all. I just let the other two trumpeters carry me through the songs.
J. Job title: Information and Referral Counselor is my full-time gig. But since my blog earned me 58 cents, I consider blogging to be my job too. Obviously that helps sustain my ritzy lifestyle.
* Side note, I'm still currently looking for another job so if you know of any openings somewhere or would like to hire me, let me know. I'm great at almost everything except playing the trumpet.
K. Kids: Someday maybe I will have kiddos. But for now, I only have my small panther to take care of and thats enough thankyouverymuch!
L. Live: STL
M. Mom’s name: Mary and just so you know, she's the best mom there is.
N. Nicknames: My parents call me Cubber sometimes and my sister calls me Sil. She is Bil. It's short for Silly and Billy. I like nicknames though so if you want to call me something other than Erica, just let me know. We can work something out I'm sure, assuming you don't want to call me anything mean, like jerkface or something.
O. Overnight hospital stays: One recently to have my gallbladder taken out. Whatever Gallbladder, I didn't really like you anyway. My pancreas and liver are much happier without you cramping their style inside my body. They have much more room to relax with one less roommate in there.
P. Pet peeves: Negative attitudes
Q. Quote from a movie: I'm posting two quotes from Elf, because it's the holiday season...
"I just like to smile. Smiling's my favorite." I love this saying. I wish smiling was everyone's favorite.
"We elves try to stick to the four main food groups... candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup." This was basically me, prior to this year when I started eating better and working out. Maybe I am a freakishly tall elf???
R. Righty or lefty: Righty
S. Siblings: An older brother and 2 younger sisters. Much like how my mom is the best mom, my siblings are also the best siblings. And because this survey doesn't ask about my dad, I'm just going to go ahead and say I have the best one of those too.
T. Time you wake up: 9a. Then 9:10a. Then 9:20a.
U. Underwear: Um... yes? Awkward moment. If we were face to face right now, we would probably be avoiding eye contact and looking at our feet and stuff.
V. Vegetables you don’t like: Prior to this year, I would have said almost all of them. Now... I'm thinking, I'm thinking... still thinking... still thinking... I really can't think of one. Instead, I will tell you what I resent about one particular vegetable. I'm looking at you carrots. Don't think I haven't forgotten about how you tinted my skin orange. The Oompa Loompa look isn't really "In" this year so keep it to yourself, okay? You don't see broccoli turning me green, do you? Or cauliflower turning me white? Oh wait, I am already naturally pale and pasty. Sometimes, it looks like my legs haven't seen the light of day for 8.5 years.
W. What makes you run late: Hitting my snooze button 3 times. Every. Single. Day. (See Letter T)
X. X-rays you’ve had: My foot. One time when I was a kid, my brother was teasing me, so I kicked him in the shin. Needless to say, he did not get hurt, but I broke my toe. That's the kind of thing that would only happen to me.
Y. Yummy food you make: I think I make lots of yummy food (all vegan of course)... lasagna, chocolate chip cookies... sushi... I LOVE LOVE LOVE cooking. And eating.
Z. Zoo animal you like: I love all animals but I super-love monkeys and bears and camels. And rhinocesauruses. No, I did not mean rhinoceros. Bil knows what I'm talking about.
