Okay, I'll bite....

A - Age: 22

B - Bed size: Queen

C - Chore you hate: All of them! Dishes are top of the list, though.

D - Dog's name: No dogs.

E - Essential start your day item: My notebook with my "to do" list and daily workout.

F - Favorite color: Chocolate brown

G - Gold or Silver: Jewelry? Silver or white gold.

H - Height: 5 foot 6

I - Instruments you play(ed): Recorder, keyboard, guitar and drums, none seriously or particularly well.

J - Job title: Independant Kleeneze Distributor

K - Kid(s): 2 biological, 3y/o at home and preemie (19 weeks) in heaven. 3 step-children, a 20 y/o, 18 y/o and 16 y/o.

L - Living arrangements: Renting a 3 bedroom house near a lake. Love it.

M - Mom's name: Not telling you; if you say it thrice into a mirror she'll appear behind you and destroy the world, so....

N - Nicknames: Don't have any.

O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: Giving birth to my son, 4-day coma, overdose x2, tonsils out as a child...there are a few others where I sat overnight in A&E waiting to be seen but none where I was admitted.

P - Pet Peeve: Too many to list. Primarily hypocrisy and people who complain about a situation without doing anything to improve it. Suck it up, buttercup!

Q - Quote from a movie: "It can't rain all the time." From the Crow. I'm an optimist, and I love the film. If you don't know it, or know the story of Brandon Lee, rent it; it's worth it.

R - Right or left handed: Right.

S - Siblings: Sort of none, sort of 4. 4 half siblings, 3 sisters and a bro, all teenagers, but I've never lived with them and haven't spoken to them in over a year, nor am I likely to again.

T - Time you wake up: Usually 4am to 9am. 8am is the average, but I'm a bit of an insomniac.

U- Underwear: Cherry bra, "grumpy but gorgeous" undies because they belonged to my fave girlfriend and I'm feeling reminiscent.

V - Vegetable you dislike: Not sure there are any...mushrooms come closest.

W - Ways you run late: I always remember something just as I head out of the door.

X - X-rays you've had: Think I had one as a child for my teeth, something about measuring me for braces I never had, but apart from that....

Y - Yummy food you make: I make a "poor mans Chilli Con Carne" that gets so much praise I've started making it for yum factor rather than poverty.

Z- zzzzzzzzzzz! The more I sleep, the less I want, the less I sleep, the more I want; I'm never content with my sleep!

Just because you have been through the rain of life doesn't mean I have to walk around in wet clothes forever; there is a warm towel, a big hug, and a mug of low fat cocoa waiting for you somewhere!

Hey Ducky, sounds like we should talk. I can relate to so much of what you said.

I also want the recipe for that soup! I've been looking for some good Thai and Chinese recipes I can scale for use in this program. My usual giant plate of pad thai would probably break the nutrition tracker...

I just got here not long ago. Welcome! emoticon

I so love this thread! Welcome aboard!

Looks like the majority have full size beds... one would think it would be a room full of queens, lol



Those who only talk about it are usually passed up by those who are quiet & actually doing it. Life's a climb but the view is great.

Howdy! Brand new here--so I might as well jump right on in with both (webbed) feet:

A - Age: 55

B - Bed size: Full.

C - Chore you hate: I have this pathological hatred of vaccuum cleaners.

D - Dog's name: No pets of any sort right now, alas. I've had a number of kittehs in my life, however.

E - Essential start your day item: Checking all my social networking sites. Le computer geek, c'est moi.

F - Favorite color: Deep reds--ruby, garnet, burgundy.

G - Gold or Silver: Silver jewelry all the way.

H - Height: 5'3"

I - Instruments you play(ed): piano, clarinet, guitar, voice

J - Job title: self (under-)employed web designer/desktop publisher/online community wrangler

K - Kid(s): None. Never wanted to do the parenthood thing, but I make a terrific auntie :)

L - Living arrangements: sharing an apartment with a friend.

M - Mom's name: originally Anita, but she changed it to Anne at some point before I was born.

N - Nicknames: Ducky. For reals. Old college nickname.

O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: full hysterectomy five years ago. I hated the hospital so much, I was up and walking as soon as I could manage and went home 36 hours after surgery.

P - Pet Peeve: Anonymous online jerks--commonly known as trolls. Why do some people see the anonymity of the Internet as an excuse to act like psychopathic douchebags? I won't read the comments section of any news website article about LGBT people any more--I just know all the phobes will get in there and start saying obnoxious crap, and I'm sick and tired of letting that negativity pollute my brain.

Q - Quote from a movie: Geez, you mean I only get to pick one? :-D Okay ... current favorite, a not-so-newie but goodie: "Maybe you should put some shorts on or something, if you want to keep fighting evil today."

R - Right or left handed: Very left-handed.

S - Siblings: one brother, two years younger; one sister, eight years younger.

T - Time you wake up: 10am. Trying to reset my sleep clock so I wake earlier.

U- Underwear: I loathe brassieres with a passion only exceeded by my loathing of vaccuum cleaners. I wear one when I go out in public. The minute I'm at home, it gets ditched.

V - Vegetable you dislike: I love a lot of the veggies most people love to hate (beets, brussels sprouts, eggplant, spinach) ... but a lifetime of dieting has given me a love/hate relationship with the classic dieter's veggies like salads and raw celery.

W - Ways you run late: Too busy fooling around with my social networking toys.

X - X-rays you've had: bunches of x-rays of my arthritic hips and knees. The usual mamograms. Oh yeah, and of course a whole bunch related to the hysterectomy.

Y - Yummy food you make: I adore cooking Asian dishes. I make an awesome tom yum goong (Thai hot-and-sour shrimp soup); I also do a fabulous Chinese red-cooked pork belly, but I won't be doing that very often now that I'm on the weight-loss regime again.

Z- My bod craves sleep. It'll get by with 8 hours, but really isn't happy with less than 9.

A - Age: 32

B - Bed size: Queen. I got an elaborately carved four-poster for a song on Kijiji but it turned out to be about 4 feet off the ground so it's a little ridiculous. :)

C - Chore you hate: handwashing dishes

D - Dog's name: My family dog when I was a teenager was Mo. He was a dwarf lab mutt addicted to chasing water but he's been gone for six years now. My wife and I have one cat named Alaska. She's a pure white long-haired princess who looks like a show cat but was actually a rescue. She broke out of our temporary downtown sublet apartment and was lost for three months after we moved across the country but we never stopped checking the Humane Society until we found her again.

E - Essential start your day item: A shower and a glass of water

F - Favorite color: Red (though I wear a lot of black - it's easy!)

G - Gold or Silver: silver

H - Height: 5'4

I - Instruments you play(ed): I know about 5 chords on guitar. :)

J - Job title: Community Grants Program Assistant. My partner is a Scenic Artist. We also have an art glass hobby business!

K - Kid(s): None, but thinking about it (tick tick tick).

L - Living arrangements: With my beautiful wife and our cat Alaska. We moved one year ago from Winnipeg to Ottawa and (after the temporary summer sublet) bought an adorable house in up-and-coming Vanier. Our last house in Winnipeg was a real fixer upper (ie "death trap") when we first bought it but after five years of hard work it was transformed into a lovely century home. Our new home was built in '45 but fully renovated in '89 so it's in great shape. We got to focus on "decorating" for the first time and we're working on our gardens now!

M - Mom's name: Carol

N - Nicknames: None, and I'm sad! Although when I spent time in Ecuador and Guatemala 8 years ago I was called Erika because my real name is impossible to pronounce in Spanish.

O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: None for myself. Did a 60-hour bedside vigil as my father-in-law passed away though.

P - Pet Peeve: misuse of "there" and "your".

Q - Quote from a movie: "Frodo : Go back, Sam. I'm going to Mordor alone.
Sam: Of course you are. And I'm coming with you."

R - Right or left handed: Right handed. My wife is a lefty so I have to be careful to sit on her right so we don't bump elbows. ;)

S - Siblings: 3 sisters, a brother, 2 brother-in-laws and 2 sister-in-laws. :)

T - Time you wake up: 7am

U- Underwear: Cotton, brightly coloured and festooned with bows.

V - Vegetable you dislike: Okra, but I probably just don't know how to cook it properly!

W - Ways you run late: Never feeling like I'm ready or prepared so running around forever at the last minute.

X - X-rays you've had: teeth

Y - Yummy food you make: lentil soup and breaded tofu

Z- zzzzzzzzzzz! I must have complete darkness and silence and my sweetheart beside me. She's a night owl so it can be a struggle getting her into bed! And I like to wear an eye mask and earplugs. Sleep is important to my brain... thingy.

A - Age: 27

B - Bed size: Twin, not enough space for anything else, heh.

C - Chore you hate: Besides all of them? Laundry.

D - Dog's name: I am NOT a dog person. No dog, hence no name.

E - Essential start your day item: The snooze button.

F - Favorite color: Blue

G - Gold or Silver: Silver

H - Height: My doctor tells me 4'11"

I - Instruments you play(ed): No instrument. I was in chorus all through school though, if voice counts. :D

J - Job title: Photo Lab Technician

K - Kid(s): None

L - Living arrangements: Currently renting a room from my mother due to lack of other options, but I'm working on it.

M - Mom's name: Kathy

N - Nicknames: Online- Ver, Ver-bear; IRL- Most people call me Cris these days, which is good, because the nickname thing was getting insane for a while there.

O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: Splodey appendix a few years ago.

P - Pet Peeve: Stupidity.

Q - Quote from a movie: "When are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage!" - Practical Magic

R - Right or left handed: I was ambidextrous as a kid, but I was made to feel freakish about it, so I ended up choosing my right hand.

S - Siblings: 2 sisters. One is technically half, but we were never raised to think about it like that. She's my sister. Plain and simple.

T - Time you wake up: Depends, anywhere from 12pm- 2pm usually. (I work evenings.)

U- Underwear: Uh, white boyshorts?

V - Vegetable you dislike: Lots, actually, but the worst is peas and green beans. YUCK.

W - Ways you run late: God, I'll end up being late to my own funeral somehow. Usually I get distracted by something else. I walk everywhere, so sometimes I have a hard time getting across this one really busy street on my way somewhere because people don't stop. Oversleep sometimes. But mostly I procrastinate and lose track of time.

X - X-rays you've had: Hmm, teeth, ankle, chest, stomach.

Y - Yummy food you make: Brownies, man. My coworkers think I could open up a shop. XD They're SO bad for you though. I can make pretty good mac and cheese in my rice cooker. As far as Spark-friendly stuff, I'm working on tweaking a lasagna recipe that's pretty good, but could be better. :D

Z- zzzzzzzzzzz! Sleep. I love sleep. I never feel like I have enough of it. I need 7 hours of good sleep to feel normal. Anything less and I'm a nightmare to be around; anything more and I'm groggy for the rest of the day.
