The ABCs of me

Oh yes, yes I did.

Yes, this is a meme. But lately, I've been strapped for content and Loralee was doing it, so I jumped on the cool kids bandwagon. I promise I'll be back, but for now, I've got midterms. And then papers. And then exams. FML. So here's the meme.

A – ADVOCATE FOR: Cancer research, a more effective Children's Aid system and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies as a breakfast food

B – BEST FEATURE: Eyes, hands down. Everyone comments on them, thanks to the fact that they change colours.

C – COULD DO WITHOUT: Vegetables. Jerks. Roommates. Cities. Injuries.

D – DREAMS & DESIRES: I want to become a teacher, get married, have a family and live happily ever after. I'm not after fame or fortune. Just enough money to live comfortably and someone who loves me for me.

E – ESSENTIAL ITEMS: My truck, a tank of gas, my Blackberry, and my iPod with some good tunes.

F – FAVORITE PAST TIME: Hockey. I could spend my entire life in an arena and be happy. I love the cold, and I like the smell of the ice. And yes, ice pads DO have a smell.

G – GOOD AT: Sports, school, farming and being the type of loyal friend who will throw a punch for you if necessary.

H – HAVE NEVER TRIED: Going vegetarian or vegan. There are some things I could give up. Meat is not one of them.

I – IF I HAD A MILLION DOLLARS: Buy a house, give a good chunk to my parents, have a bit of a shopping spree and invest the rest.

J – JUNKIE FOR: Dim sum. Sushi. Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies but only the soft kind. House. Hockey.

K – KINDRED SPIRIT: 6 of them, who I love with my whole heart.

L – LITTLE KNOWN FACT: I'm left handed. People in real life obviously picked up on that one, but did any of you know it?

M – MEMORABLE MOMENT: The first time I traveled internationally, the first time I went alone, California in senior year, far too many to list.

N – NEVER AGAIN WILL I: Lose myself. I came too close, and I hate that.

O – OCCASIONAL INDULGENCE: Live sports games. There's nothing that will make me happy like NHL tickets.

P – PROFESSION: Professional student. And I work at a bar. So professional student beer slinger? Awesome.

Q – QUOTE: "I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."
— Marilyn Monroe

R – REASON TO SMILE: A house, a home, friends, family, money, education, safety,'s pretty good, isn't it?

S – SORRY ABOUT: My past screw ups. But I've owned to them, and its time to move forward.


U – UNINTERESTED IN: Drama. Pink. Pop. Doing anyone's makeup but my own. (I'm good at it, but hate doing other people's)

V – VERY SCARED OF: Disappointing people I love. Losing people I love.

W – WORST HABITS: Hating household chores, period.

X – X MARKS MY IDEAL VACATION SPOT: LOL You seriously want me to pick one? I've traveled extensively. Here's a blog entry about it, if you're interested.

Y – YUMMIEST DESSERT: Anything that combines the word "cake," "chocolate," and "molten" had me at hello.

Z – ZODIAC SIGN: Virgo. I'm "shy." I stopped believing in horoscopes right when I read that one.

I am now for some reason picturing you as the chick from the movie Coyote Ugly. Sorry. ;0)

I may do this on Monday. We shall see. Love your list. Dude, my husband is a Virgo...I've never seen it (nor him) described as shy.
