I was hanging out over at Mean Girl Garage a few minutes ago and felt like filling this out. I seriously try to stick with my retro topics, so after midnight, I'll most likely yank it.
a. area code: Starts with a 9.
b. bed size: Queen, our crappy bedroom would never allow for a King-sized bed.
c. chore you hate: Honestly, I'm so not domestic. If hubs would allow, I'd hire someone, anyone to clean for us. If I had to narrow it down to just one type of chore, I'd say anything having to do with floors though. Vacuuming and mopping.
d. dog's name: Never had a dog. Ever. Not a dog person. It's a mutual thing, dogs and I just don't mesh well. Our cat's name is Chawklit--that's how it sounds when you're from Long Island, so we spell it phonetically.
e. essential "start of the day" item: French Toast flavored coffee or Toasted Almond flavored coffee.
f. favorite color: Black - don't gimme that, "Black is not a color" BS, because in my gloomy world it is! My entire closet is basically filled with black or brown.
g. gold or silver: Silver, white gold or platinum -- regular old-school gold hurts my eyes.
h. height: 5'4
i. instruments you play: [inappropriate and deleted]
j. job: They pay me to write things. Are these things any good, I have no idea.
k. kids: Doubtful seeing as I have a fatal case of Peter Pan syndrome.
l. living arrangements: Hubs and Chawklit in a cozy suburban apartment
m. mom's name: Just Mom.
n. nickname: People love giving me nicknames. Spazz (a play on my last name). Ally-Baba in college. As a little kid it was "Son Of Ally" (as in Allyson). Freak-out-icka at one job because I tend to freak out a lot. Nugz at one job because I was obsessed with ordering a 4-piece Wendy's chicken nuggets and side salad (can't beat a $2 lunch!) -- I'd cut up the nugz, put them over the salad and say, "I'm being healthy."
o. overnight hospital stay: One for a sleep study - I thought I snored and had sleep apnea--but they said I didn't based on the testing. November 2008--for five nights as soon as we returned from our honeymoon, it turned out what I thought was Tourista from Punta Cana, was actually Pancreatitis from gall stones the size of Texas. That basically ruined my honey moon. It was cool losing 13 lbs in three weeks though.
p. pet peeve: I could go on forever. People who park too close to me. People who don't signal. People who bring little kids and babies out to dinner after 9PM or to bars. Dirty dishes my hubs leaves for me after I've already cleaned the kitchen. Messing up my mani or pedi a minute after I leave the nail salon. People who do not like me. I could go on for hours...
q. quote from movie: So many...
From Rushmore: "Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it."
From Rushmore: "I wrote a hit play, and I'm in love with you."
From River's Edge: "You're in love with his middle-aged ass!" and "What are you dying in there?" and "Two dollars money for gas, one of has to get a job!"
r. righty or lefty: I'm right-handed however, some of my fave male bloggers, Jesse, Ian and Black as Obama are all lefties.
s. siblings: Just a lil bro who isn't very little anymore.
t. time you wake up: I don't really sleep, but when I do I'm up by 8 or 9 on non-working days and 6 or 7 on working days.
u. underwear: What about it? Black like everything else.
v. vegetables you dislike: More like veggie I like - spinach. Not a big fruit or veggie fan. Working on this though!
w. ways or reasons you are late: Busy leaving comments on blogs or messing about on Facebook. Really. So pathetically true!
x. x-rays: On my gall bladder which is gone now. On a foot that's just chubby-thought I had gout. Dental x-rays a few weeks ago.
y. yummy food you make: Lean meatloaf, anything breakfasty, baked mac and cheese (when I ate carbs) and soft and dee-lish gingerbread men at Christmas time.
z. zoo animals you like: Zoos make me sad. Animals held captive. Bronx and Central Park I guess.
