ABCs - easy as...

Apparently I've decided to jump on the bandwagon and join in too.....

A) Age: 44
(B) Bed Size: King (sleep number - it's the best)
(C) Chore You Hate: folding and putting away laundry - and when I let my husband decide which chores I do - he always goes to laundry first
(D) Dogs? Love them - all except our current Jack Russel, Bandit - his other name is "please die soon"
(E) Essential Start Your Day Item: toothbrush, Chai latte
(F) Favorite Color: Orange
(G) Gold or Silver? Both - it depends on my mood
(H) Height: 5' 2"
(I) Instruments You Play: I played the flute and piccolo through high school - I could probably still play Mary Had a Little Lamb on one...
(J) Job Title: Controller
(K) Kids: Two boys; 12 and 10 and today on a snow day they are being totally obnoxious lovely.
(L) Live: Why yes, yes I do
(M) Mom's Name: Alice (and her husband's name is Bill) like that play...
(N) Nicknames: Shadoof (it's a long drunken sorority kind of story)
(O) Overnight Hospital Stays? tonsils, two C-sections, back surgery
(P) Pet Peeve: stupid people; could there be anything worse?  And spitting - I can't tell you how much I hate to see someone spit.
(Q) Quote from a Movie: I think it pisses God off when you walk by the color purple in a field and don't notice it
(R) Right or Left Handed? Right, though I can write mirror writing with my left.
(S) Siblings: Younger sister
(T) Time You Wake Up? During the week at 6 and on the weekends as late as possible.
(U) Underwear: Hipsters mostly - thongs with certain outfits
(V) Vegetable You Dislike: beets and I'm afraid to try brussell sprouts
(W) What Makes You Run Late: My husband though he'd swear on his life it's the other way around - I'll have the car packed and be ready to leave for vacation with the kids in the car and THEN he'll say, okay let me just go in and pack up my computer. (shaking head)
(X) X-Rays You've Had Done: ankles a few times, back lots of times and lots of fun things before wls.
(Y) Yummy Food You Make: caramel filled brownies with chocolate and peanut butter chips, pumpkin bars (I totally stole the recipe from Paula Dean).
(Z) Zoo, Favorite Animal: Penguins and monkeys make me laugh, elephants leave me in awe, lions scare the shit out of me.

Hey Read! I use a Polar for bootcamp and a Garmin for my long runs. I needed the added GPS functionality of the Garmin for my running. Thanks for dropping by. If you want more specifics on either, please let me know.
Take care,
Fluffy
