Oooh, fun. I have a stack of smelly plates waiting for me in the incubator…but Janet’s ABC meme is more interesting. Answers below the fold.
Accent: Midwest, so what most people think of when they say “American accent.” Did start saying “waaa-ter” and “cawww-fee” a bit too much after waitressing for several years in Connecticut, but have long shaken that.
Booze: Not much of a drinker. Tried to develop a taste for beer but still hate the stuff. On the rare occasions I actually go out, it’s usually something with a vodka base.
Chore I Hate: Vacuuming.
Dog or Cat: Have a dog right now, but it’s a chihuahua so according to some, it doesn’t count toward that species at all.
Essential Electronics: Computer and any kind of radio/CD player/digital music gadget. Music is essential.
Favorite Cologne: I don’t think I’ve owned any perfume since junior high.
Gold or Silver: Meh. I wear some of both.
Hometown: Technically Findlay, Ohio, but I grew up in the country outside of town.
Job Title: Assistant professor/microbiologist/epidemiologist/lab rat/mom.
Kids: 2, ages 6 and 4.
Living arrangements: Old farmhouse out in the sticks.
Most admirable traits: I don’t give up easily.
Not going to cop to: I don’t think much can be worse than the country music thing.
Overnight hospital stays: Just for the kiddos.
Phobias: None I can think of.
Quote: I suck at remembering good quotes. –Tara Smith
Religion: Not so much.
Siblings: Sister and brother, both younger.
Time I wake up: Depends on the day. 5-6AM weekdays, 7-9AM weekends (essentially, whenever the dog or the rugrats start a-callin’).
Unusual talent or skill: I can juggle. Badly.
Vegetable I love: I’m such a bad vegetable-eater. Anything but corn I have to mix with other stuff to eat.
Worst habit: Procrastination (which should be obvious by the mere fact that I’m filling this out).
X-rays: Hand, wrist, and finger at different times. Midsection from a bout with kidney stones in high school.
Yummy foods I make: Chicken alfredo. Lasagna. Lemon chicken with rice pilaf. Casseroles. Cookies. Pies. I’m a pretty good cook.
Zodiac sign: Pisces.
