I saw this Meme on Major knitter, and thought I’d give it a shot. Normally I’m opposed to Memes, but like she said, this one looked interesting.
ACCENT: Bastardized Midwestern. I was born and raised in Ohio, but I do my best to hide it. I often use slang from England and Canada. I try to pronounce things properly, rather than the way other Ohioans do, but when I’m around family friends I tend to talk like hick, mostly because they do and it infiltrates my speech. Part of the reason my accent is bastardized though is because I had a Montrealer teach me to talk (Mom), and she learned European English, but learned an American accent when she came to the US 20-some-odd years ago.
BREAKFAST OR NO BREAKFAST: Depends. If I’m hungry, I eat. If I’m going to work or school, I eat. If not, then I don’t.
CHORE I DON’T CARE FOR: Any. But the one I hate most is vacuuming.
DOG OR CAT: Both. They each have their advantages and disadvantages and personality quirks. Right now I’m living with my parents,so that means a gold lab and and a black lab.
ESSENTIAL ELECTRONICS: Laptop (Mac Powerbook G4)(preferably with internet access), cell phone (crappy Nextel), and camera (lovely blue Fuji)
FAVORITE COLOGNE: I don’t wear it often. I usually use either Hawiian Ginger or White Tea Ginger body lotion. When I’m doing something fancy I’ll wear either Pure Bliss (which is rose scented) or a cherry blossom cologne I got from Bath and Body works. I’m allergic to most perfumes.
GOLD OR SILVER: Silver. I’m olive complected, and gold looks really bad on me.
HANDBAG I CARRY MOST OFTEN: the red one I got from Target. I’ll switch to a messenger bag purse once school starts.
JOB TITLE: Crew member at discount clothing store, aspiring writer/fiber artist, blogger, part time podcaster.
LIVING ARRANGEMENTS: Currently with the ‘rents. Will be moving in with Alice and her brother come August.
MOST ADMIRABLE TRAIT: Do I have one?
NAUGHTIEST CHILDHOOD BEHAVIOR: I’m an only child, so I got blamed for everything, even if it wasn’t my fault. I was a pathological liar until I was ten, but I was always very bad at it.
OVERNIGHT HOSPITAL STAY: None since I was born.
PHOBIAS: Heights, spiders, snakes.
QUOTE: “I became insane with horrible intervals of sanity.” –Edgar Allan Poe.
REASON TO SMILE: Commedians
TIME I WAKE UP: Between 8 and 9, usually.
UNUSUAL SKILL OR TALENT: Um…I’ve never followed a knitting pattern? Does that count?
VEGETABLE I REFUSE TO EAT: Celery.
WORST HABIT: I procrastinate. Terribly. I put off everything.
X-RAYS: The last one I had was last May for my right ankle when some guy at school hit me with a steel door and fractured it. Before that, it was when I was nine and had bacterial pneumonia.
YUMMY STUFF: Strawberry shortcake, snickers, oreos (mint, chocolate, and regular), any kind of icecream except Blue Bunny and Rocky Road.
ZOO ANIMAL I LIKE MOST: Otters. I also love Flamingos.
