a- z all about me!

sarah & i at the national arboretum in dc

i've seen this survey on many blogs now. so, i thought i'd join in on the fun. i know you all are just dying to know a bit about me...here we go!

A. Age: 28 and 7 months.

B. Bed size: Queen.

C. Chore you dislike: I really don't mind most chores , but sorting the recyclables after missing the last pick up (we recyle most everything- 1 small bag of trash if we are lucky a week and 4 large containers of recyclables) and cleaning the litterbox are not on the top of "my fun things to do" list

D. Dogs: We have our pup anna - she is 8 & spencer the cat - he is 11 who pretends not to care about anyone but soaks up any attention he can get

E. Essential start to your day:  shower, tea then breakfast at the office on days i work. on my day off; gym, tea with breakfast and the paper, then a shower. i am so routine it is frightening to most.
F. Favorite color: depends on how the color is being used . i love blue/grey & muted tones for paint color. black, white, purple & grey for most of my clothes. bold pattern and color for home fabrics - toss pillows, drapes.

G. Gold or silver: silver, white gold or platinum- never gold.
H. Height: 5'6"

I. Instruments you play(ed): this is funny....i have no musical talent whatsoever. i attempted to play the recorder in 3rd grade but fortunately broke my arm so i no longer had to play. (my parents had the rule if we started something we had to finish it regardless whether we liked it or not)

J. Job title: Conference Coordinator

K. Kids: Not yet. But we do want kids someday -- we'll start off with one then see how it goes

L. Live: Central New Hampshire--- the lakes region. lakes, mountains, farms, fresh air- whats not to love!

M. Mom’s name: First: Coleen, Middle: Marie

N. Nicknames: heath - only those close to me call me this. justin can't stand this so he calls me by my full name.

O. Overnight hospital stays: two. one when i was little -- i had tubes in my ears. adnoids out and tonsils out when i was 4. second when just last year in boston for over a week -

P. Pet peeves: people who do not hold doors for others or say thank you (inconsiderate people). those who cry poor and go out and spend money on luxuries such as flat screen tvs and new cars (to understand about the second i ended up reading "understanding poverty" which helped me be a bit less judgemental)

oh and people who chew with their mouths open- gross!

Q. Quote from a movie:  "You guys might not know this, but I consider myself a bit of a loner. I tend to think of myself as a one-man wolf pack. But when my sister brought Doug home, I knew he was one of my own. And my wolf pack... it grew by one. So there... there were two of us in the wolf pack... I was alone first in the pack, and then Doug joined in later. And six months ago, when Doug introduced me to you guys, I thought, "Wait a second, could it be?" And now I know for sure, I just added two more guys to my wolf pack. Four of us wolves, running around the desert together, in Las Vegas, looking for strippers and cocaine. So tonight, I make a toast! " - the hangover

At Rex Kwan Do, we use the buddy system. No more flying solo. You need somebody watching your back at all times. Second off, you're gonna learn to discipline your image. You think I got where I am today because I dressed like Peter Pan over here?
[points to Kip]
Rex: Take a look at what I'm wearing, people. You think anybody wants a roundhouse kick to the face while I'm wearing these bad boys? Forget about it. Last off, my students will learn about self respect. You think anybody thinks I'm a failure because I go home to Starla at night? Forget about it! -Napoleon Dynamite

R. Righty or lefty: Righty .

S. Siblings: sister, sarah-- she's 25

T. Time you wake up: well the alarm goes off at 6:15am / 6:30am and i usually an up by 7:00am
U. Underwear: i wear them
V. Vegetables you don't like: hmmm this is tough i generally like everything- although i am not crazy about red radishes

Y. Yummy food you make: most everything i bake/make- breads. cookies. cupcakes.vegan lasagna
