I have totally stolen this idea from my dear friend Damien. If you love a good blog read and don't mind your eyes feasting on the flesh of many naked men, head on over the Damien's blog 2 cents worth Down Under.
Anyway, my responses to the theft . . .
A - Age: I turn 37 in August. I seem to forget my age most of the time and only usually remember when I think of others around me aging! *no names!*
B - Bed size: Queen. And it's ALL mine!!
C - Chore you hate: Anything. Pretty hopeless these days - can't bend, can't lift.
D - Dog’s name: Misty. Awwwww.
E - Essential start to your day: Coffee. Sometimes several. I'm doing a unit of work with my students at the moment on drugs and alcohol and when covering addiction some of them proudly told me they can tell when I don't have one!
F - Favourite colour: Purple. But I tend to wear more blue.
G - Gold or Silver: Gold. Silver always looks cheap to me hehe.
H - Height: 193cm. True. And I've been this height since I was 13. I'm the woman you see sitting and think nothing unusual until I stand up. Then the jaws drop, the eyes go wide and I usually break the ice by telling a joke about being called Amazon Woman.
I - Instruments: Nothing. Nada. Although I have fallen over a guitar in class if that counts?
J- Job: Secondary School Teacher of kids with Special Needs. It's never dull.
K – Kids: Three. Planned for two. Tried for two. One son dragged another with him lol
L - Living arrangements: Suburban life. 3 kids, a dog, 2 fish and a coparent ;) *waves - Hi Coparent!*
M - Mum’s name: Mum, of course!
N - Nicknames: Amazon Woman. Wonder (high school reference to Wonder Woman), Bones.
O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: Too many to list. Started with open heart surgery and went from there. Life is never dull. Apparently I'm in a medical journal somewhere as I was the first open heart surgery done in Australia that didn't involve cutting into the groin. Apparently it was cutting edge (hahahahaha, yeah, I meant that one) stuff.
P - Pet Peeve: People who lie.
Q - Quote from a movie: "Houstin, we have a problem". I also do an amusing rendition of Keanu Reeves with Mini-me. She says "Sweet" constantly and every time I follow it up with "Duuuude".
R – Robot or Human?: Human - the capacity to love is vital!
S - Siblings: Older sister. She is another amazing woman (blog post to follow about her!). She has always been a little second mum to me and continues to try to triumph over adversity.
T - Time you wake up: Usually around 6:30ish. Sometimes earlier if Mr Cheeky pays a visit to my bed. Thankfully his cuddles make up for the fact that he's a bigger bedhog than I am.
U- Underwear: What about it? Ok, Ok, I won't give a description but I love the new Tiger Print ones I bought!
V - Vegetable you dislike: Brussel Sprouts. Do they have any redeeming qualities??
W - Ways you run late: It's called having three children.
X - X-rays you’ve had: Chest, leg, arm, chest, chest, a few recently on my chest. lol
Y - Yummy food you make: Make? People make food? What a novel idea!
Z - Zoo favourite: The bear at Alma Park Zoo. Only because I then get to grin at Coparent yelling out 'Simply Brisbane's Best' with an odd lisp. It comes out as "Thimply Brithbunth Bethd'. One of those weird in-joke you develop with people you've known a looooong time.
