I saw this over on Teacher Girl's blog and just knew I had to play along!
A. Age: 25.
B. Bed size: Full. I wanted a queen, but it was more money. Duh.
C. Chore you dislike: Washing dishes. And folding laundry.
D. Dogs: My family inherited a cranky old poodle from an aunt when she passed, and I hated that little dimwit with a passion. He growled at everyone, peed in front of my bedroom door, and bit my little brother. Left a bad taste in my mouth for dogs. Jon's family has a big chocolate lab who is incredibly friendly, so I am constantly trying to convince myself that not all dogs are like that stupid poodle.
E. Essential start to your day: Sunlight! First thing I do every morning (after I go to the bathoom, of course) is to open the shades in the living room.
F. Favorite color: purple
G. Gold or silver: No real preference. My engagement ring is white gold.
H. Height: 5 feet 2 inches
I. Instruments you play(ed): None, sadly. My mom always promised me that she would teach me how to play the piano because we have an upright that has been in my family for years, but she can't afford to bring someone in to tune it.
J. Job title: Admissions Counselor
K. Kids: I can't wait to have some of my own! I've known I wanted to be a mother since I was 15, but that's a story for another day.
L. Live: In New York, but not the city and not upstate. In the middle. The beautiful Hudson Valley. I would love to live in Florida, but I can't leave my family.
M. Mom’s name: I absolutely love my mom's name. She was named after her grandma, and she also has 2 middle names. It's beautiful when you say the whole thing out loud, but I don't want to put it online.
N. Nicknames: With a short name like Amy, my nicknames are all longer than my real name. Ames, Amer, Amina. At work, they call me Gypsy.
O. Overnight hospital stays: None for me, but I've stayed overnight with my little brother during some of his stays, and he's had plenty.
P. Pet peeves: 2-faced people. Don't be nice to my face and then talk shit behind my back. If you don't like me, don't talk to me! Also, rude drivers who are always rushing to get places and honking their horns. Just have patience!
Q. Quote from a movie: I have 2, and they are both originally from a book, and they are both said by the greatest wizard ever.
"It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends."
"There comes a time when you must choose between what is easy and what is right."
R. Righty or lefty: Righty.
S. Siblings: One older brother and one younger brother. Always wanted a sister.
T. Time you wake up: Varies everyday, depending what time I have to be into the office. I try to sleep in (til 8ish) on weekends, but my body usually wakes me anyway, since it is so used to waking up earlier.
U. Underwear: aerie's boybriefs. Most comfortable!
V. Vegetables you don’t like: cauliflower and carrots.
W. What makes you run late: When the alarm goes off and I go to turn it off, but my bed is just so warm and snuggly that I hit the snooze. Then I am 5 minutes behind schedule and my body is dragging, refusing to wake up, and then I can't find the shirt I want to wear to work, even though I thought I left out the night before, and then I try to put my contacts in but my eyes refuse to open wide enough... It's a domino effect.
X. X-rays you’ve had: That I remember? My right ring finger. It's actually a funny story, remind me to tell you someday!
Y. Yummy food you make: Jon loves my pizza casserole in the crockpot. I've only been cooking for the 2 of us for a few months now, so I am still trying to perfect my style on our favorite dishes.
Z. Zoo animal favorites: Ohmigosh, all of them! Well, except the birds. They are kinda boring. I really like monkeys, bears, penguins, and giraffes.
