Just Me (from A to Z)

I saw this on a blog once, long ago (so long I have had it in my drafts for almost a year on my food blog and can't remember where I saw it!)  
Moving on...  
I thought it would be a good way to share a bit about myself. 

This is Me: from A to Z  :-)

A - Age:  35 (!?!?)  WTF...I don't want to talk about it.

B - Bed size: Luxurious California King (we bought it when we bought our house in 2010, finally room for both of us and our mountain of pillows!)

C - Chores that you hate: Honestly, I hate most of them.  I don't mind laundry.  I probably hate dishes the most. I'm not much of a housekeeper.

D - Dogs: Yes! Two goofy Labradors.  Gunney (male yellow lab, almost 5yrs old)  and Juliet (female, black lab, 2.5 yrs old(Adoption and naming stories to come sometime in the near future, thanks to Gesci for the idea!)

E - Essential start to your day: baseball talk on my XM Radio on the way to work, and usually either MickeyD's Frappe or something from Starbucks (varies depending on my mood and budget).  Besides our Bay/fireworks views, the thing I miss the most about our old (rental) house was the tiny independent drive through coffee shack I hit up daily on my way to the freeway.

F - Favorite color: Green! Emerald, lime, kelly, sage...doesn't matter. 
G - Gold or silver: Depends on what I'm wearing. I don't really have a personal preference.

H - Height:  5'9" Nothing much to say about that... I'm tall. 

I - Instruments you play: None.  :-(  I played the flute for about a year in elementary school. 

J - Job title: Purchaser (@ a computer company)

K - Kids: Not yet... But we're thinking it should happen soon.  Time's a tickin!

L - Live: San Diego, California - America's Finest City!!

M - Mother's name:  Donna (middle name Louise)

N - Nicknames: Sometimes Cyn... Please NOT Cindy.  (Also, for a select few, Marta. Hi J!)

O - Overnight hospital stays:  Never! (Knock on wood.)

P - Pet peeves: Closed minds. Bad customer service (especially at work where I am a "customer" all day long). Slow drive throughs!    
I could probably go on and on but I really try not to let things bother me too much. 

Q - Quote:  Hmm......I don't have a "favorite" quote but I like these two today.  :-)
R - Righty or Lefty:  Righty  (BF is a lefty)

S - Siblings: Two brothers.  One younger (a doctor!), one much younger (a student!).

T - Time you wake up: Usually between 6:00am -6:30am weekdays.  As late as possible on weekends.  
And everyone around my place knows not to interrupt my weekend morning sleeping!

U - Underwear: Yes...? Not sure what this one is supposed to prompt.  I wear them.  Mostly from Victoria's Secret.  Or Target.

V - Vegetable you hate: Well, there are many I haven't really given a fair shot yet...I like carrots, peas, green beans, and a few other things.  But I am being more open to trying new veggies lately!

W - What makes you run late (that's kind of cheating with the "W", isn't it?):  Sleeping through my alarm. (rare but it happens) (Alternative W - Wine hehe: Love Rieslings, Muscats, Viogniers!  I'm a white wine girl in most cases.  I do like a Syrah now and then, too.)

X - XRays you've had:  Numerous Xrays & a couple MRIs of my knee when I busted it up in Hawaii a few years ago.   
(this one is from after surgery! that GIGANTIC screw is my lifelong companion)

Y - Yummy food you make: See my food blog!   I've just started cooking in the past couple of years....   
My BF says the CrockPot albondigas soup is the best so far.  I'd vote for the grilled strawberries! 


And, finally...Z - Zoo animal:  I like giraffes, but any baby animal can suck me in.  

Have you ever done an A-Z post? (perhaps these were all the rage before I got my blog reading crap together?)  
Let me know so I can check it out.  :-)

Dishes are ALWAYS the worst chore. Will usually does them, which means I have had to do them for the last 7 months. FML. Green is also my favorite color!!

I agree about San Diego. It is my happy place. Oh and my middle name is Louise too :)

Great post! Nice to learn more about you! :) I have never been to San Diego. My husband and I once visited LA/Hollywood/Santa Monica. I'm dying to make the trip to CA again. Would love to visit San Diego and San Francisco
