F. Favorite color: yellows and oranges.

G. Gold or silver: I'm allergic to gold. So silver (although I am allergic to some silver).

H. Height: Perfectly average. (ok, so this a joke between Inspector Climate and I, he's 6'3 and I'm 5'4 and 3/4s but he insists that I am tiny and I insist that I am perfectly average...because I AM! There are people taller than me...and people shorter than me. RIGHT?).

I. Instruments you play(ed): I played the flute. badly and briefly.

J. Job title: Blissfully unemployed.

U. Underwear: Victoria's Secret basic cotton bikinis.

Z. Zoo animal favorites: Basically anything cute and furry and non rodent like. what can I say, I like me some fuzzy animals.


  1. This was fun to read!
    I feel the same way about kids :p
    Hahaha that quote is so funny, I love it!

  2. Interesting, your Q answer just answered the question I wrote about yesterday. I feel a change coming on!

  3. Aw! I am so happy you did this. It is so fun to read about other people. I want all my favorite bloggers to do this!

    I love eggplant, I think the color is pretty. Perception is funny ;P

  4. Fun fun fun!!
    Okay so:

    -You ARE a perfectly average height!! I'm 5 foot 3 and a half!!

    -Boo to you not liking eggplant! Liebling hates them too. But I looove them, along with zucchini. Yum!

    -Double hernia sounds painful!!

    -25?! I wish! I'm turning 29 this year lol.

    -Totally with you on the pet peeves!! That's a BIG problem in Hong Kong. Also people who block the whole goddamn escalator so you can't pass. #$#^@#%&!!!!

    -I think I'm gonna do this meme (is that what you would call it?) on my blog. Love this!

  5. So, uhh....about that blog reading you like to start your day with...
    *super awkward shameful comment about how I just started a blog*
    This was cool, though!

  6. I knew Australia was strict - I've had many friends from there, and one recently moved back there - but I didn't know about needing x-rays. Hard core!

  7. Hey now, average height is better than being short. Just sayin'!
    Also, I love to vacuum. I don't know why.

  8. Enchilasagne? Sounds amazing! Do tell:-) xoxo

  9. I couldn't agree more with "V"! I am curious, which country did you emigrate from?

  10. I'm 5' 5 5/8", which sounds a little OCD, but when your "around" 5'6" people are constantly saying things like, "Oh I'm 5'6" and you are way taller than me, so you MUST be taller than that" I started to get a complex and kept asking the doctor to recheck and I'm still 5' 5 5/8"! Well, except the time I went after an hour=long full body massage and I was 5" 6 1/2" but I shrunk back again! :)

  11. Five foot two and yes, it's average. Enchilasagne recipe, please?

  12. Enchilasange! Where has that been all my life?!

    I do enjoy eggplant, but only in certain things. It can be pretty ghastly, I agree.

    Love this list. It was fun to read through!

  13. Nice tidbits! I too love yellow and orange, and am also around a foot shorter than my husband. I'll add my voice to the requests for the enchilasagne recipe!

  14. That is such a fun post! I love getting to know you more. Have a great day, my dear

    Ps: I’m hosting an amazing GIVEAWAY today! You can win 2 adorable tea towels and a mug!

  15. I'm totally with you on the slow walkers. They drive me CRAZY. And they seem oblivious when you have to pass them, just moseying along.

    Please do tell with the enchilasange or whatever the hell you call it. Sounds fantastic!

  16. love this, do you mind if I steal it?

    that is all

  17. Vacuuming is my favorite. I hate washing dishes or laundry.

    Write it in Lipstick

  18. Many Colours of Happiness - I know that quote cracks me up every time I think about it. Particularly because the movie is from the 80s and her "serious" hair was AWFUL.

    Emily Jane - Yes! it is. oooh, keep me updated.

    Teacher Girl - I think the colour is pretty too. But Eeek!

    Oneika - I like zucchini. I am not sure what it is about eggplant, the texture...I dunno. But it FREAKS ME OUT.

    piceasitchensis - I went and checked out your blog :)

    Tattytiara - Yeah, I've had to have two. One before I moved here and one when I decided to stay.

    Shanimalscrackers - I am fine being average height, and I am fine being short - but it's the fact that he teases me when it's really him whose tall. le sigh.

    Everyone Calls me Bon Bon - It got lots of requests so look for the enchilasgne post over the weekend maybe?

    Shrinky - America.

    Sorta Southern Single Mom - I grew an inch from doing yoga! True story.

    Mil - Thank you! Definitely recipe coming soon.

    Ada - yay! So glad you enjoyed it.

    Susan - I love how they are both autumn and spring colours! :)

    Diana - Yay! Thrilled it was fun to read.

    Meredith - I know, right? I just want to yell at them, TO THE LEFT. STAY TO THE LEFT.

    PBJ Dreamer - of course! By all means.

    Melissa - I am not a huge fan of laundry. I like folding it though.

  19. ah! this is such a fun way to get to know you! i especially like K and L, oh and P drives me completely crazy too! i think this is all just more evidence that we would make great real life friends, and it's sad there's an entire ocean between our houses. although, the mister's family is from australia, and we've talked about living there at some point. so...

  20. That is my pet peeve as well!! Particularly when I'm trying to go somewhere fast!

    By the way, I'm deleting my blog now :-) it's fair to say I've lost my love for good andreally just need to concentrate on uni work. I'll still pop on over here though :-D
