I don't think I've done this meme before. If I have, it's been a long time. Feel free to steal it if you want. ;-)
A. Age: 40. Yikes.
B. Bed size: Queen. But in the interest of full disclosure, I should include that it is a queen-sized bed all to myself. MM and I don't sleep in the same room most nights due to differing sleep/wake schedules and his being a light sleeper (and bed hog).
C. Chore you dislike: Cleaning the bathrooms. I now hire someone to do this for me, hallelujah!
D. Dogs: We have two golden retrievers. Sebastian is 9, and Hunter is probably 6-7 (rescue, so we're not sure).
E. Essential start to your day:
F. Favorite color: blue. I especially like the shade of blue people call "royal" or "peacock."
G. Gold or silver: I don't wear a lot of jewelry but I wear more silver than gold. My wedding rings are white gold, which kinda looks like silver.
H. Height: 5'5". Well, officially. I'm really about 5'4 3/4".
I. Instruments you play(ed): I played the clarinet for YEARS. Have also played the accordion (don't judge; I was 6), saxophone, xylophone, guitar, and piano.
J. Job title: As.soc.iate At.tor.ney
K. Kids: None yet.
L. Live: in a house with MM and our beloved two golden retrievers.
M. Mom’s name: Delores. I call her D-Lo.
N. Nicknames: I don't really have any nowadays. My sister called me "Bearkie" as a child--for reasons which have been lost in the sands of time--and I've been called by my last name by a lot of friends who've had other people in their life who shared my first name.
O. Overnight hospital stays: Never. I'd like to keep that record intact, please.
P. Pet peeves: Oh goodness, were would I start? I'm going to go with a safe choice which (I hope) won't offend many people and say drivers who change lanes without signaling.
Q. Quote from a movie: "I look like a nerdy hillbilly." (Bonus points for the person who can tell me what movie this is from. It's a recent one.)
R. Righty or lefty: Righty. MM is a lefty.
S. Siblings: I grew up with a sister 25 months younger, the fabulous V. We also have three stepsisters (mom's remarriage), two stepbrothers (dad's remarriage; one is now deceased, though), and two "long-lost" half-sisters we have never met through our mother.
T. Time you wake up: Usually 6:00 a.m. Lately I have been getting up at 4:55 a.m. for morning boot camp. (MM gets up at 8:45 a.m. most days)
U. Underwear: Cotton hipsters. I don't "do" cute underwear, and I despise thongs. I'm all about comfort! (And MM could care less. He told me early on that he finds sexy lingerie "intimidating.")
V. Vegetables you don’t like: Raw onions. Blech.
W.What makes you run late: Underestimating the time it will take to arrive at my destination.
X. X-rays you’ve had: teeth, right arm (once in college), and I had an MRI of my right arm two summers ago after a dog bite.
Y. Yummy food you make: Hmm, tough one. I'm really not much of a cook and only prepare a real "meal" maybe once a quarter or so. I make decent green chile chicken enchiladas.
Z. Zoo animal favorites: I like primates, especially orangutans or gorillas.
