alphabet meme

I stumbled across this meme from the folks over at Vox. I thought it would be interesting.

accent: I think my Southern accent has gotten stronger, the longer I live among the cornfields. I rarely ever utter a sentence without someone asking me where I'm from. I am unable to differentiate words like pen and pin. I have trouble saying those "e's"

booze: Not much anymore. The last drink I had was an amaretto sour. Though I did try this yummy drink with the new Ruby Red Vodka one night and it was ridiculously good.

chore I hate
: Saying all chores makes me sound lazy, which I am, I suppose. I mostly hate cleaning the bathroom because M's hair gets everywhere. Plus I hate scrubbing of any kind. I love loading the dishwasher and vacuuming.

: Midori, who is so cute it practically pains me. I kind of want another kitty but we aren't sure how Her Highness would react.

essential electronics
: My laptop. ipod. cell phone.

favorite perfume/cologne
: I fell in love with Escada Sentiment when I lived in England. Lately though I've been using Oscar de La Renta's Rosamar. perfume

: Silver. I also wear white gold because I like the look of silver. I'd accept platinum of course, if you're buying.

: I was born in Opelika, Alabama. But I only lived there a few months before we moved. I consider Mobile, Alabama my hometown because I lived there for the longest amount of time and went to college there.

: Not lately, but I used to be terrified to sleep because I'd have awful nightmares. There were nights I cried I was so tired but was too afraid to do anything about it. It's balanced out since my emotional health has improved.

job title
: I have several. Writing Program Assistant. Graduate Teaching Assistant. Currently my job title is Technology GA for the Focus Initiative at ISU.

No. No. No. No.

living arrangements
: I recently moved in with M so I'll soon share a 2 BR apartment in Champaign, Illinois. I'm excited about getting settled in. And actually utilizing a kitchen.

most admired trait
: I can't tell if I'm supposed to say what I admire in others or what others might admire in me so I'll go for both. I admire those who are self-disciplined because I'm not. But what I admire most in others in genorosity. What I admire about myself or what I think others admire is my creativity.

number of significant relationships
: I'm going to say 3 romantic relationships including the one I'm in now. The first was one of those wild, youthful, passionate, terrifying things. The second was about solace, escape, companionship. The one I'm in now defies description. I don't understand it and I try not to question it.

overnight hospital stays
: None, unless you count times I was there for others like when my loved ones were sick.

: I am terrified of suffocating. I cannot stand when rooms feel stuffy, and hot. When I feel I can't breathe I begin to panic. Also, I am a bit scared of big dogs and overly cheery, perky people. Katie Couric scares the crap out of me.

: My favorite quotes come from movies and/or writers. My favorite movie quote is from The Big Lebowksi:
"No Walter, you're not wrong; you're just an asshole." ~said by the Dude, himself.

religion: I'm not sure you can actually be a non-practicing Methodist but if you can, then that'd be the best description of my religion. I grew up in the church, grew skeptical of certain elements and decided spirituality had nothing to do with religion.

: One brother, Matt, 24, Mechanical Engineer. If you speak to me for at least 5 minutes you probably know that. (He starts his new job at ACIPCO) tomorrow. Wish him well.

time I usually wake up
: It depends. If I take M to work or have to be somewhere like a meeting usually 8 or 9. If I can sleep as long as I want usually 10 or 11, sometimes later. I hate the whole process of waking up.

unusual talent
: I don't think that would be appropriate to write about in public.

vegetables I refuse to eat: Most of them. I hate brussel sprouts, asparagus, broccoli, cooked carrots, and corn. If you can't fry the vegetable, I probably don't like it.

worst habit
: Cursing. Or being absentminded.

: Several.I got scans and an MRI when I hurt my knee.

yummy foods I make
: Cheesy pasta goodness. Fried Green Tomatoes. Baked Pineapple.

zodiac sign
: I'm an Aquarius. Aquarians are visionaries, progressive souls who love to spend time thinking about how things can be better. They are also quick to engage others in this process, which is why they have so many friends and acquaintances. Making the world a better place is a collaborative effort for Aquarians. While Aquarians are generally sympathetic and compassionate, they like it when things go their own quirky way. Some might call their behavior eccentric (and they would be right), but when you consider that the Aquarian's heart is truly in the right place, a few oddities should be overlooked. In their own way, Aquarians treasure their many friends and acquaintances and want to give back as much as they can. (From )
