A. Age: 27…I’m still getting used to that!
B. Bed size: Queen, currently – when I move in with Brendan, we’ll have a king to share with the three kitties!
C. Chore you hate: Cleaning the bathroom. I definitely go too long between cleaning times…considering the rest of my house is usually clean, it’s surprising how gross my bathroom can get!
D. Dogs: I definitely want one, when we can handle it – but I love our three kitties a lot!
E. Essential start to your day: Breakfast, for sure. I didn’t love breakfast food growing up, but now I can’t imagine not eating breakfast right when I wake up!
F. Favorite color: Probably red? I dunno anymore – I like a lot of bright colors right now.
G. Gold or silver: Silver, most of the time.
H. Height: 5’6” – on a good day
I. Instruments you play: I was an avid recorder player back in the day (I know, I know, I’m a huge dork), and I played french horn in middle school. I really wanted to be a drummer instead!
J. Job title: Lab slave. Almost Ph.D. finisher. Soon to be lab slave again – but with a slightly better position?
(yep, that's me)
K. Kids: None yet – some time in the future I want one or two, but we’re not going to be there any time soon.
L. Live: I’ve lived in four places in my life thus far – Minnesota, Boston, D.C., and Philly. Going back to Boston! (cue Augustana song here)
M. Mom’s name: Janise
N. Nicknames: When I was little, my hair had this awesome sticking-up thing going on. It was the 80s, and my parents thought I looked like a punk rocker – hence the name “Punk.” I’ve mostly grown out of it, but occasionally they still call me that – I don’t even notice, but my friends are always confused!
O. Overnight hospital stays: Only when I had my tonsils out when I was four.
P. Pet peeve: When people just don’t care. I’m a bit OCD about everything – I just can’t relate to people who are so laid back they manage to not care about something important.
Q. Quote from a movie: As much as I do watch movies, I don’t remember most of them – so no favorite quotes!
R. Right or left handed: Right.
S. Siblings: None – I’m an only child.
T. Time you wake up: Usually between 6 and 8 – depends on the day and how hard I worked the day before.
U. Underwear: is necessary.
V. Vegetables you dislike: Brussels sprouts. I’ve tried to like them, but have only enjoyed them once!
W. What makes you run late: Reading too many blogs, and insisting on making a full breakfast every day.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Ankle, when I twisted it when I was 8 or so. A zillion x-rays of my left foot, when I broke it in 2007.
Y. Yummy food you make: The stuff that’s unique(-ish) to me? English muffins, coleslaw (my Mom’s recipe), really yummy burgers and meatloaf. For dessert – chocolate chip cake from scratch, peanut butter brownies, and margarita bars.
Z. Zoo- favorite animal: Golden lion tamarin monkeys are the cutest. I love giraffes and tapirs because they’re funny-looking, though!
And there we have it - hope you enjoyed :)
