Katy and Jennifer did recently. It's a Tuesday, so this works for Blog Me Maybe's Tell you something about myself theme. Get ready to learn about how weird I am!
A is for age: Late twenties. I'm in denial about how late it is.
B is for breakfast today: 2% Greek Yogurt and a teensy bit of granola. Plus a boatload* of coffee. *I consider one cup a boatload. Maybe I should call it a dinghyload.
C is for currently craving: My WIP to stop tormenting me and become both revised and awesome.
D is for dinner tonight: If I'm going to cook, a tofu curry. If I'm not, pizza or nachos.
E is for favorite type of exercise: Running. I love yoga and swimming, too--but nothing beats a good, long run.
F is for an irrational fear: Where to start? Airplanes, styrofoam, infinity. I am a pretty neurotic person.
G is for gross food: Anything that swimmeth or creepeth upon the sea.
H is for hometown: Madison, the Athens of the Midwest.
I is for something important: Sleep. I love sleep. I would like more of it.
J is for current favorite jam: D'arbo sour cherry preserves. I'm obsessed! Or my mom's/grandma's homemade strawberry. Thanks to stupid 3-oz. liquid rules on airplanes, I am having difficulty stocking this in my pantry.
K is for kids: Does it count if I still feel like one?
L is for current location: Office/writing space/guest bedroom/storage (All the rooms in my little apartment have multiple purposes. Even the bathroom.)
M is for the most recent way you spent money: Rent :(
N is for something you need: Allergy meds--pollen is my nemesis
P is for pet peeve: People who take care of personal hygiene on the subway. Clipping your nails, flossing your teeth, doing your hair, extracting pores--WHY, people, why? Do that at home! Ew!
Q is for a quote: Omnia quae cupio iam habeo, Latin for "Everything I want I already have." Helps me stay in the moment. Also, "Normal is just a setting on the dryer." I don't know who said that, but s/he was the best. And "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming." There's a lot of good life advice in Finding Nemo.
R is for random fact about you: I once had a piece of art on display at the Milwaukee Art Museum.
S is for favorite healthy snack: Tiny coconut-milk ice cream sandwiches, banana-split flavor. Yum! (Wait, are desserts by definition unhealthy? If so--change my answer to guac.)
T is for favorite treat: Doughnuts, of course. Also Spekuloos spread from the Wafels and Dinges truck
U is for something that makes you unique: I am incapable of keeping plants alive. I have killed cacti from both over and underwatering. I genuinely forget that I have plants and by the time I remember, they are dead. This is why I am wary of someday being responsible for a child.
V is for favorite vegetable: Broccoli and kale: I love my veggies.
W is for today’s workout: Ran 6 miles! It was great.
X is for X-rays you’ve had: Teeth, feet, and my chronically dysfunctional sinuses
Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Hanging out in Central Park with my fiance
Z is for your time zone: Eastern, although I still fall back into thinking I'm CST occasionally
