Natalie's ABC's


A Age: 29 years, 9 months, 7 days

B Bed size: Queen, although when it is being shared with Michael, Spencer and Ginger it feels more like half a twin.

C Chore you hate: Pumping gas.

D Dog's name: Ginger Jones

E Essential item to start your day: Shower. I used to have to watch the morning news but now I just check cnn.com for 2-3 minutes and feel caught up.

F Favorite color: Purple and black- they're a tie.

G Gold or Silver: Silver

H Height: I say 5' 6", but it's probably more like 5' 5 1/2"

I Instruments you play: I took 8 years of piano lessons but would now be hard pressed to pound out a decent "Chopsticks".

J Job title: Paid Job: Speech Language Pathologist
Unpaid Job: Mommy

K Key to a Happy Life: Marry someone you genuinely like. Looks fade, sex alone can't keep a marriage together and money doesn't buy happiness, but being married to your friend will help get you through a lot of crap.

L Living arrangements: I own my 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home and live here with my husband, son and dog.

M Mom's name: Carol

N Nicknames: Nat, Lady Huffington, Bartel, Krone

O Overnight hospital stay: I guess when I was born at age 0, when I got my tonsils/adenoids out at age 24 and when I gave birth to Spencer at age 28 and 1 day. I should have stayed in the hospital overnight when I had my jaw surgery, but somehow it's not protocol to keep a patient overnight that has just had their facial bones broken, separated from their skull, moved and then put back together with titanium plates and screws.

P Pet Peeve: People running stop signs, customer service at Home Depot, weeds, repeating lyrics in songs. My longterm readers may remember I did an entire post about my pet peeves.

Q Quote from a movie: "For June who loved this garden from Joseph who always sat beside her. Some people do spend their whole lives together. -Anna Scott, Notting Hill
(On a side note, I have NEVER watched that scene without crying. And I mean tears running down my face crying.)

R Right or left handed: Right

S Siblings: Older brother: Nathan
Younger brother: Nick

T Time you wake up: Depending on the day- between 6:00 and 8:30

U Underwear: I'm not sure how to answer this. How about just, yes.

V Vegetable you dislike: Radishes. Yuck!

W Ways/Reasons you run late: When Spencer has a diaper blowout at the last minute or I find him playing with my lipstick without my permission and/or knowledge. Unrelated to Spencer- when I hit snooze too many times and then can't find anything to wear.

X X-rays you've had: broken right arm in 3rd grade, broken left arm in 5th grade, chest x-ray before starting allergy shots, dental x-rays of my teeth as needed, many many many x-rays of my jaw.

Y Yummy food you like to eat: shrimp cocktail, ceasar salad, french onion soup, medium rare steak, creme brulee, red wine. It's my dream meal. I ate it before my jaw surgery.

Z Zoo animals you like: If pigs lived at the zoo I would say pigs. But, I wouldn't accept that answer from a kid during speech therapy ("no, pigs are farm animals) so I'll have to say polar bears or otters. Something that spends a lot of time in water but doesn't necessarily live in the water. That's the life I'd like to live.

This one popped out because I figured this may actually tell the tale of how really similar we really are.

Let's see our differences shall we: you're way taller than me, different fav colors (mine are light blue and pale yellow), I have never played any musical instruments unless you count the little plastic recorder they teach you in elementary school music class, of course jobs, hospital stays/visits (I haven't had any except my birth and my kids' births...just lucky I guess), you have 2 brothers and I only have one (maybe I'm the lucky one here...hehe), I like all your food likes except I don't like my steak too rare (no blood please...hehe), and I'm not that big a fan of pigs (I do like to eat them though since I'm from pork barbecue capitol of the world! Yay for eastern North Carolina barbecue! :-)

More funny similar things: I do like silver better than gold; I agree on philosophy a happy married life; my mom's middle name is Carol; I do love that quote from Notting Hill, but I wouldn't have recalled it if not for your post; right handed but that's a common one; yeah, not that big a fan of radishes either.

So that was entertaining, huh?
