ABC's Take 2

It is SERIOUSLY ironic that as someone who spends more time than the average person thinking about the alphabet, I skipped HALF OF IT when writing my previous post.

At first I thought okay, I was tired... but then when I looked back at the missing letters, I realized I ANSWERED THOSE QUESTIONS, they were there and then they disappeared. Why the heck do I still use Ecto? It is beyond terrible. I really need to just bite the bullet and buy Parrallels so I can get Windows Live Writer. Otherwise I might really lose my teaching reputation here lol.

Let me try this again!

Age: 26

Bed size: KING

Chore you dislike: The only chore I like is emptying the dish washer, and like is probably too nice of a word. I hate all chores.

Dogs: I like to visit them, but not deal with my own. See previous answer about hating chores.

Essential start to your day: A groaning about morning session with Eric, following by food of some kind.

Favorite color: Pink

Gold or silver: Silver, but Gold is growing on me lately.

Height: almost 5'5" and by the way, if you were a doctor, wouldn't you just give people that extra half an inch, I mean... they do it in sport pros all the time (or is that weight?)

Instruments you play(ed): I once played the clarinet and piano but refused to practice either one and frankly have no musical talent what so ever. My musical peak was "Josephine" in HMS Pinafore: 5th Grade.

Job title: Kindergarten Teacher

Kids: Does 102 students count? No kids past the school day/year for awhile.

Live: Near Boston, considering move to basically anywhere warmer, getting less picky by the day.

Mom’s name: Gail... which is now half of my middle name, attached to my maiden last name. Did I mention a bartender asked me how to say this name in total seriousness? Yeah, it's not a real name it's the RMV not allowing me to have 2 middle names.

Nicknames: Trips [maiden last name] and "Kel"

Overnight hospital stays: I don't think I've had any... I mean other than when I was born.

Pet peeve: "Teachers get paid too much with all those vacations." "You have the whole summer off!" "Kindergarten isn't like "real" school." "You must play all day, right?" etc.

Quote from a movie: "So, what would you say, you do here?" (Office Space)

Righty or Lefty: Righty

Siblings: Caroline and Jake

Time you wake up: Eric and I have slowed moved our wake up time later and later over the past few years. Now it's 6:10... somehow I still get to work by 6:45 most days.

Underwear: Pink.

Vegetables you don’t like: Hate lettuce, and yes this means I don't do salads. Love most other veggies though.

What makes you run late: Assuming I have a ton of time and then waiting until the last minute to actually get ready.

X-Rays you’ve had: I had my knee X-rayed last year but they didn't find anything. I'm sure I was also X-rayed as a child either from my tricycle flipped backwards off the deck incident or perhaps my freak accident involving wood swing sets and a green popsicle, which I clearly should not have had in my hand when trying to go across the top of said swing set... but the good news is, I never ACTUALLY broke any bones. Yay me.

Yummy food you make: Hmm, I like my pizza and I think I'm getting better on the spring roll front.

Zoo animal favorite: Monkeys are great, but if I'm at a Zooquarium (like at the Cape!) then I'm going to go with the sea animals every time, penguins, dolphins, whales, even sharks are pretty fascinating, though I don't want to see them in the wild I'll say that.

Since it's almost Friday (or it is Friday depending on when you read this), let's celebrate with you telling me one of the following:

*Something awesome you are planning to do this weekend.

*A crazy childhood accident you had

*What time you wake up during the weekend on the weekend :)

*What makes you run late, or are you a person who is always always early (like my darling husband Eric)

and GO!


  1. Gold is growing on me too! Twins.

    1. I'M GOING TO PUNTA CANA!! But you already know this, because you lent me clothing.
    2. I wake up at like 9 now. I don't know what happened to me. The other weekend I went back to sleep and slept till NOON -what!?
    3. I repeat my answer to Amber, Facebook and blogs : )

  2. You know, when i read your previous version I was like - wow, she skipped alot of letters, I guess there were alot of questions she didn't want to answer. ;)

    My answers:

    1. Something awesome = waking up w/out an alarm clock.
    2. My sister was spinning in circles with a pillow in her outstretched arms (random, I know), and I stood up at an inopportune moment. I was catapulted into the tv and now have a lovely scar on my forehead to show for it.
    3. I wake up around 7:30-8.
    4. I am usually early... but when I do run behind, it's usually because I am leaving one last comment on a blog or sending one last email..

  3. funny about the half inch! when i played basketball we were always WAY generous with that.

    1. sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep. and go to a baby shower
    2. my brother threw a golf club at my nose. i'm convinced that's why my nose is kind of crooked.
    3. usually it's 8-9am but lately i've been so tired it's whenever i wake!
    4. i'm usually really early to things but if i'm running late it's usually because i'm waiting on other people to finish stuff. is it bad that i'm blaming others?

  4. I am SOOOO the person who is always running late. It's terrible and something I really need to work on!

    I'm looking forward to going SNOWBOARDING this weekend - we're actually GOING this time too! Haha

    I usually wake up between 6 am and 8 am on the weekends depending on what I have going on.

    I broke BOTH my feet (not at once) in 4th grade. The first one I fell back into a rocking chair during "cheerleading" and the 2nd one I broke 4 months later jumping off the "fort".

    And I totally just answered all your questions out of order. Haha!

  5. I'm always 10 minutes early. I have a terrible fear of being late so I always give myself extra time. Sometimes even I annoy myself with it, but I just can't help it!

  6. I was wondering about those missing letters....I love this and am going to steal it if I ever have time to blog this weekend...papers are due next week so I anticipate a lot of time spent writing this weekend, but not on my blog!

  7. This weekend I'm getting together with an awesome group of friends. There's 6 of us and we get together monthly and we all got married in 2010. We haven't all been together since August (I've been in ME and another is doing grad school in MD). So cool that we're all going to be together tomorrow!

  8. I love that you love penguins & dolphins! I do too :) (not that this matters in the grand scheme of things really). Anyway, your comment to the morning routine is so similar to mine it cracked me up! Happy Friday!

  9. This weekend I get to spend time just hanging out with my fella, which is great because I haven't seen him since Tuesday!

  10. Well heck, come on over to our house I have a full dishwasher here for you to empty!! Funny enough, that's my LEAST favorite chore!! No joke.

    Nothing to look forward to this weekend, other And on days off I really don't sleep in past 7:30am, because if I do then I am screwed on the days I work!!

  11. lol. i was just giving you a hard time as i am sure others were. :) that's funny about the bartender. i still have avoided the name change thing...

  12. Pet peeve: "Teachers get paid too much with all those vacations." "You have the whole summer off!" "Kindergarten isn't like "real" school." "You must play all day, right?" etc. ....AMEN!!!! I would dare anyone of those commentators to spend ONE day in kindergarten! or teaching in general!

  13. I am way behind-

    My favorite crazy childhood thing- I wanted to be an Olympic jumper (not diver, jumper) so I would fill the bathtub up and run all the way down the hallway into the tub, hurdling over the tub wall. This was fun until I split my chin. Dreams...dashed!

    also- I am SO SICK of people who think teaching is easy! UGH!!!!
