The ABC's of Me

I've seen a few of these type posts around lately, but I stole this one from Kristi over at Melbourne on my Mind. I discovered Kristi's blog while following links through numerous blogs from 20 Something Bloggers and quickly became a follower.

Anywho, here it goes.

Age: 27

Bed: Queen sized with a memory foam mattress topper that basically hugs you when you lie down and a luscious feather down comforter. We have just enough space to spread out on our own when we aren't curled around each other.

Chore you hate: Putting away the clean laundry or clean dishes. I don't mind doing them because I don't like dirty things, but I have laziness issues when it comes time to put them away.

Dogs: I like dogs and have had a few in my life, but I am really a cat person.

Essential start to your day: Breakfast. It's my favorite meal.

Favorite color: Purple. Nearly any shade, but I tend to lean towards the lighter shades.

Gold or silver: Definitely silver. I've never liked the look of gold on my skin, unless it's white gold.

Height: 5'6"

Instruments you play: Flute, piccolo, Bass Clarinet, and a little bit of Piano. I haven't played in years, and the only one I actually own now is my flute, but it's packed away in storage.

Job title: Unintentional House Girlfriend

Kids: Maybe one day. My mom wants me to have a little girl, and that would be totally fine with me IF I have a child. And IF I have a child it will be an ONLY child. I don't really like kids, especially the ones who's parents think they are angels when in all reality they are annoying little shits who destroy everything in sight. (Don't worry, Philip and I have already talked about this and he's on board with possibly only having one kid.)

Live: A flat wasteland of farms and trees and nothingness called mid-Missouri.

Mom's name: Melanie

Nickname: Manda. Manna. Mander. I hate when people call my Mandy, the only exception being my grandmother because I don't have the heart to tell her I hate it.

Overnight hospital stay: It wasn't for me. I stayed at the hospital with my, then, best friend while she was in labor with her first child. We are no longer friends. Why not? I'm not entirely sure, but I have my theories.

Pet peeve: Wet towels on the floor, bed, or anywhere other than the hook in the bathroom or the dirty laundry basket.

Quote from a book or movie: "You must know... surely, you must know it was all for you. You are too generous to trifle with me. I believe you spoke with my aunt last night, and it has taught me to hope as I'd scarcely allowed myself before. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on."

Righty/Lefty: Righty

Siblings: I am the oldest of six. Three sisters and three brothers. Granted some are half and step siblings, but siblings nonetheless.

Time you wake up: Usually around 8:30am, but I don't get out of bed until 9am or so. Sometimes 10am if I haven't slept well.

Underwear: Cotton and comfortable.

Veggies you dislike: It would be easier to ask me what veggies I do like. I only eat broccoli, green beans, carrots, celery, salad greens (ie, lettuce and baby spinach), corn, and potatoes. The rest is off the menu.

What makes you late: Changing clothes again and again cause I can't decide what to wear.

X-Rays you've had: Teeth. I had braces for years and once to see where my wisdom teeth were.

Yummy food you make: Um. Just read my posts with the "food" label or check my Food board on Pinterest.

Zoo animal: Technically it's not the zoo, it's the aquarium, but beluga whales. I could sit and watch them swim all day. I took this video at the Georgia Aquarium about 4 years ago of the beluga whales exhibit.


  1. I hate hate hate putting away laundry. Dishes I don't mind as much because that normally takes me a matter of seconds, but laundry? With all the folding and the hanging.. no no. Do not like.

    Also, sick burn about your ex-bestie's ugo children!

    I agree with you about kids. Most of them suck. There are a few that are ok, but mostly not. Although I think I hate new parents more than children. Being a 20 something in the Facebook generation is rough. If I have to look at one more picture of Junior's first watercolor, I might snap. If I have any, I would just want one as well. But mostly I'd rather just have multiple cats.

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who hates putting laundry away lol!

      I totally agree about Facebook! I de-friended a lot of people that went to high school with me who weren't really a friend so I didn't have to see the 18 pictures a day of the different faces your kid makes that really all just look like the same constipated face of confusion at why you aren't changing their diaper.
