ABC’s of ME: More than you ever needed to know!

I have to say thanks to one of my favorite Bloggers Molly who posted a similar list; I stole her idea and then changed some of the letters! As I am spending an incredible amount of time on my upcoming cake show “3 Tier Occasion Display Cake”, I was struggling to find something else to post about!! So here goes!

A. Age: 26; (27 in Triathlon years)

B. Born: St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada

C. Chore you dislike: Vacuuming! I absolutely HATE the sound!

D. Dangerous when: on the dance floor (with margarita in hand!)

E. Essential start to your day: Chocolate milk

F. Favorite Food: Meat! Preferably beef

G. Good Samaritan: When I was a teacher I started a "breakfast club" for some of my students who were less fortunate. They'd swing by and I'd have fruit, cereal, or breakfast bars for them. Otherwise they were too tired to participate in my phys ed class!! Maybe this was bribery?

H. Height: 5’ 1”

I. Instruments you play(ed): Does the soccer ball count?

J. Joke: "What did the ocean say to the beach?"..."Nothing, it just waved!" (there is more of where that came from!)

K. Kids: Still negotiating!

L. Love: The Boss

M. Most memorable moment: The proposal is ranking pretty high up there!

N. Nicknames: “B”, Bobs, Bertie, Bob-er-enio, Bam, Bambino, Bobbie-licious (okay not the last one! But anything that starts with B)

O. Overnight hospital stays: There was that one time... well since I still haven't told my mom that one, maybe I shouldn't post it here.

P. Phobia: I'm actually scared of the dark :(

Q. Quote from a movie: "Soap Poisoning"... please tell me that someone else knows what this is from! Click here if you’ve given up!

R. Reading (Currently): Racing Weight

S. Sports (highest levels): Division 1 college soccer (USA), National level Squash (Canada), Provincial Badminton (Canada), High school volleyball, basketball, and track! And now, somehow, I've been talked into Triathlon and Distance running?

T. Travel to-do list: Greek Islands, Antartica, New Zeland, SPACE travel!! (this is actually a never ending list)

U. Unattractive feature (in the opposite sex): Facial hair! Well, back hair ranks up there too... but that is at least a couple dates later! hahaha

V. Vegetables you don’t like: Broccoli

W. What makes you run late: A more specific question would ask "what helps you be on time?" Sorry Boss, but remember I played this song for you early on in our relationship!

X. X-rays you’ve had: Well let's start with the time I shattered my knee cap. Then there was skull x-rays the time my sister broke her hand by karate chopping me on my head (and I got grounded for that one???). Then there was the magical time that I smashed my front teeth out on the soccer goal post! I could keep going...but again, some of these my mom doesn't know about :)

Y. Yummy food you make: Well... I have this interest in cupcakes? I'm not sure I've ever mentioned that on here before?

Z. Zoo animal favorites: Giraffe!!! I'm not sure they're at the zoo... but I saw them on my Safari!

I am reading Racing Weight right now myself. I have some nice giraffe pix from our zoo. We saw them over Xmas and they were too cool!

One of my favorite quotes is from the same movie - "You used all the glue...ON PURPOSE!"

I have to admit, I had to look up the quote. I can't believe I didn't get it! I like your updated list, much better than the original.

Great list! And of course I knew the quote, that movie was a staple of my childhood as it reminded my father of his Midwestern upbringing!

You don't happen to know either of the two NHL players from Newfoundland, do you? LOL (My Canadian friends always crack up when people ask them if they know so-and-so because "he's from Canada too")

Molly, honestly Newfoundland is such a tight knit community that virtually anyone who "does anything" from there is a local celebrity! But I am good friends with one of the guys and I knew the other 2 as "friends of friends". Small world!

...but no, nobody actually has a beaver or a polar bear for a pet :) Those jokes get old!

I played squash for my college team! Good times.

Well now that's extra funny since one of them plays for *my* team and is my husband's favorite player :-) A lot of the players as well as the Sharks coach live in our neighborhood so we see some of them a lot.

"Fragile! It must be italian!" One of my (and my family's) all time favorite movies. We watch it every Christmas!
