It’s Monday…

I managed to get up and get myself to work, but my ability to actually compose a post isn’t here yet.  So I’ve stolen this little ditty from Kelly at Dare to be Domestic.  Here you go…more stuff you never really wanted to know about me…

a. area code: 914 – always have been…even when I lived in 212.

b. bed size: King…and with J, me and two dogs it’s still not big enough.

c. chore you hate: Cleaning the bathroom.  I hate it with the fire of a thousand suns.  J has very bad aim…enough said.

d. dog’s name: Sadie and Sofie…but they answer to many things…Sadie is often Sadie Lady, Sades, Mama, Bubba, Lovie Bug and Sofie is often Sofie Dofie, Monkey, Monster and, everyone’s favorite, Moose-alini.

e. essential “start of the day” item: Diet Coke.  It’s a must have…I don’t drink coffee, so I need the caffeine.

f. favorite color: Blue…any color blue, except royal blue. 

g. gold or silver: Silver or white gold. 

h. height: 5’4″. Too short to reach the high shelves in my kitchen.

i. instruments you play: None…I’m not musically talented.

j. job: Accountant.  Although some days it feels like I’m just everyone’s bitch.

k. kids: Unfortunately, just the two furry ones for now.  I’m hoping to have a few of the human variety soon.

l. living arrangements: J and I bought our house two years ago and have been fixing it up since.  It’s the house that crack built.

m. mom’s name: Kathy.

n. nickname: J used to call me pookie, but I got him to stop that.  Then he called me Swish…not sure why.  Now he calls me honey, but he has me listed in his cell phone as Tony…again, I have no idea.  He thinks it’s hysterical.  My grandfather calls me Bubsy Head…don’t even get me started on that one. 

o. overnight hospital stay: I was six and had my tonsils out. 

p. pet peeve: I don’t even know where to begin with this one…loud chewers top the list, people who clean or cut their nails in public, humming…the list goes on.

q. quote from movie: “Let’s make some bad decisions with each other.”

r. righty or lefty: Righty.

s. siblings: Younger brother.

t. time you wake up: Now that tax season is over it’s back to 6 am.

u. underwear: Lacey boy shorts usually, but sometimes I like to surprise J with something sexier…or nothing at all…sorry, is that TMI?

v. vegetables you dislike: Celery – yuck.  Way too stringy.  And I run hot and cold with tomatoes. 

w. ways or reasons you are late: I like to believe it’s genetics and therefore out of my control.  I’m late for almost everything.  I don’t like to be late, but it just happens.  I usually underestimate how long it will take me to get ready or get where I’m going. 

x. x-rays: Teeth last week and when I was training for the half marathon a few years ago my knee, ankle, shin and hip…all at different times.  I was injured a lot when I was training.

y. yummy food you make: I made a s’more pie for Easter and J’s 8-year-old cousin told me it was “the best thing he’s ever eaten…ever!”  I guess that was good.  I also make these caramel pecan brownies that I think are gross and too sweet, but everyone else seems to love.  Any baked goods I make usually go over well.  Whenever it’s a holiday, J’s family always asks me what I’ve made before they select a dessert from the table. 

z. zoo animals you like: I like the exotic animals…like tigers and elephants.  But I walk past the Central Park Zoo in the morning and I like to watch the goats in there.  They are stinky, but they are pretty cute. 

So there you have it…me from A to Z!


  1. So cute! I might have to jump on the bandwagon with this one at some point this week.

    Celery is the most worthless vegetable of all time. It’s like 100% water and gets stuck in my teeth. So stupid!

  2. I would not even want to list all my pet peeves. I mean I don’t want to be so easily annoyed. I just am. My husband is most annoyed with my being so easily annoyed.

  3. YAY – these are great. Thank you for sharing! Do you like the taste of celery? Or is just the texture thing? It’s a pain in the A but my boyfriend’s sister-in-law usually takes the veggie peeler and she scrapes off the strings on the outside and then spreads cheese or peanut butter or whatever on the celery – she says it gets rid of the annoying strings. I’ve never tried it but it seems like a pretty smart move!

  4. manfriend and i have our own bathrooms and closets. it is the best thing i have ever done for our relationship.

    i only like celery when it is filled with cream cheese. i know that sounds weird, but the delish cream cheese makes up for the yucka celery.
