But feeling as tired as I am at the moment, I'm going to steal from Funnygrrl and be a lazy blogger today.
Age - 36
Bed - Double, like it, but it's getting up there in years. I really don't care much about what my bedroom looks like, I don't spent much time there.
Chore you hate - I'm not much of a chore person. Probably washing dishes.
Dogs - more of a cat person but allergies will keep anything with fur out of my home. I like breathing without medication.
Essential start to my day - Breakfast. I don't function well without food. Not much of a coffee person.
Favourite colour - Purple.
Gold or silver - Silver. My wedding rings are titanium and my engagement stone is a clear sapphire, my birthstone. I like my jewellry to have significance. I don't have my ears pierced, but neither does my mom (nor her mother/grandmothers) so if I am wearing earrings, it's likely a hand me down from them.
Instruments you play - Clarinet in high school, but I'd rather support music than play.
Job title - Senior Consumer Analyst.
Kids - Not yet.
Live - Ontario, Canada. I've always lived relatively close to Toronto without ever living in Toronto.
Mothers name - Marilyn. I went through a phase where I figured out that her middle name (Margaret) was also her mothers name and both of her grandmothers name and somehow it's not in my name at all. I named all my dolls Margaret and if I could have changed my name when I was 10, I would have had a second middle name of Margaret.
Nicknames - not many really. Seraphinalina is something I gave myself. Hmm... nope, can't think of any.
Edit: I did think of a few, my dad calls me Sweetie (even on my Christmas presents if it's from him), Mr. Lina calls me Snuggles and various forms of the word snuggle, like snugglebum.
Overnight hospital stays - No. I've spent time at the hospital for surgery, but not overnight.
Pet Peeves - Pet peeves need to be petty and I just can't get too worked up about much. Aggressive drivers I suppose, the kind that weave in and out and scoot up a lane that is going to end just to get 2 cars ahead of where they were.
Quote from a movie - "I'm a girl, I'm a girl, I'm a girl..." from Some Like it Hot. Not exactly the deepest of quotes but the first to come to mind. If you haven't watched this movie yet, you really should.
Right/left handed - Right handed, my mother is a lefty so sometimes I arrange things a bit backwards because it "seems" right.
Siblings - Two younger brothers, two sister in laws and one brother in law.
Time you wake up - Alarm goes off at 6:30, if I'm in the shower by 7 we're doing well. Without a schedule, I'd probably wake up around 8.
Underwear - Varies, I like cheeky lace panties that I make, but I also have more practical cotton panties.
Vegetable you hate - Not much, I am allergic to carrots, celery and mustard. If it doesn't give me hives, I'm pretty much okay with it.
What makes you late? - Sleeping in. I try to be punctual, I'm usually running a couple of minutes behind from thinking it will take less time to get somewhere than it will.
X-Rays - Dentist, baby toe when I cracked it when I was 14, my uterus (that freaking sucked, do not recommend that test)
Yummy food you make - Lots, I like to feed people. I like doing appetizers best, bean dips, hummus, artichoke dip, cream puffs with savoury fillings, foccacia, brie en croute...
Zoo animal - It's been a few years now since I was last at the zoo. Maybe the penguins, but mostly because they make me think of "And Tango Makes Three" a great story about how parenting isn't about birth.
