ABCs of Christina

A = Age: 26 which I can't believe. I always act feel much younger than what I really am.

B = Bed size: King, but I wish it were bigger. Then I could further myself from J's snoring self and actually get some space of my own without a cat and a dog all up in my business.

C = Chore you dislike: I hate dishes. Hate them.

D = Dogs: Corky who is 7! (This is his presidential shot if he ever runs for office)

E= Essential start to your day: Amazing Grass

F = Favorite color: Green (as if you couldn't tell)! It just makes me really happy.

G = Gold or silver: Silver or white gold.

H = Height: 5'4"

I = Instruments you play(ed): Piano and flute

J = Job title: Lazy ass student/bum

K = Kids: negative

L = Live: Chicagoland

M = Mom’s name: Debbie-Lyn

N = Nicknames: Mystina and when I was younger Stina, occasionally Teeny and other "small" names because I was tiny.

O = Overnight hospital stays: When I was 9 months old I had meningitis, so that was a bunch of hospital stuff. Then when I first moved out on my own when I was 20 I got tonsilitis really, really badly and ended up in the hospital for two days.

P = Pet peeves: Too many to list! Ignorant people. Disrespectful people. Bad grammar. Bad driving. People that don't understand stop signs. Knuckle cracking. I'll stop there.

Q = Quote from a movie: I quote movies all the time, but I have a feeling I'm the only one that gets them. Hmm.. let's choose "I'm a good girl I am!"

R = Righty or lefty: Righty

S = Siblings: One younger brother, Michael.

T = Time you wake up: Depends on when I got to sleep the night before. Usually around 8 or so when J is up and leaving for work. If I'm being an insomniac, it can be as late as 11 or so. Occasionally J and I stay up all night (watching movies or shows on Netflix) and then I'll sleep until like 3 pm

U = Underwear: Current pair? blue with turquoise edging

V = Vegetables you don’t like: Um I was going to say tomatoes and mushrooms, but neither of those are technically a vegetable. So, really I think I like them all!

W = What makes you run late: Not wanting to get out of my warm bed.

X = X-rays you’ve had: Dental ones, obviously. Chiropractor ones. My tailbone when I fell down the stairs here and broke it. My foot when my toe got caught on J's Doc Marten's and turned all shades of hideous blue, black, and purple. Observations with acid reflux.

Y = Yummy food you make: See: my blog archive

Z = Zoo animal favorites: Caruso, the white cheeked gibbon at Lincoln Park Zoo. He sucks his thumb and always recognizes me and goes apeshit (no pun intended). We have millions of photos and video evidence of his affection for me - ranging from shrieking and running over to the glass, sitting pressed up against me, or doing a little mating dance.

Loved this post Christina!! That's so funny about the monkey! Can you believe I've lived here my whole life and have never been to Lincoln Park Zoo before?!

I love My Fair Lady! "Just you wayte Enry Iggins!" (I know - that is a poor attempt at spelling things out phonetically. Oh well). And gibbons are the best lesser ape there is (and I think the only lesser ape, but hey).
