ABC of Me

Currently doing the rounds of the blogosphere* is this 'ABCs of Me' thing. No-one has tagged me in it but I'm going to do it anyway.

A. Age: 23, but I keep forgetting and thinking I am 22. I'm not 22. Or am I? Shit.

B. Bed size: Double, but sometimes couch-sized due to accidental snooze.

C. Chores you dislike: Oh man, pretty much all of them.

D. Dogs: Dogs? Dogs.

E. Essential start to your day: Coffee and a wee.. Coffee.

F. Favourite colour: I... this is a dumb question. Blue? Red? Who cares?

G. Gold or silver: Silver. But this is also a dumb question.

H. Height: I am unsure. 23.

I. Instruments you play(ed): Trumpet! And not very good piano.

J. Job title: Officially unemployed. But new job starts on May 1 and I will tell you all about it then, when I can remember what the official title is.

K. Kids: Where? Not here, surely. Why are you in my house, kids? Go away.

L. Live: Yes. Hard to do a blog when you're dead, unless you were extremely organised and set up autoposts for months after your demise, which now that I've thought of it I totally intend to do.

M. Mum’s name: Sue, aka 'Mum'

N. Nicknames: I don't really have any nicknames, but sometimes when I meet people in real life they introduce me by my Twitter name, which is Tarquin_Death. It's always a little weird. "Hello! This is Tarquin Death." "Hello!" And then I try not to look like a psychopath.

O. Overnight hospital stays: None.

P. Pet peeves: People who talk when I am trying to watch something. If you want to talk, go away and talk somewhere else, America's Next Top Model is on. Worse: people who talk when I am trying to watch something, then become passive-aggressive and sulky when I pause whatever it is, or turn off the TV.

Q. Quote from a movie: "For just one night let's not be co-workers. Let's be co-people." We could all take a lesson from Ron Burgundy in how to legitimize office romances or, as I have just decided I like to call them, 'cubecest.' 60% of the time, it works every time.

R. Righty or lefty: Yes.

S. Siblings: Again, yes. Three sisters. If this was a Disney movie, at least one of them would be evil. Probably two. Probably me.

T. Time you wake up: Late.

U: Underwear: Yeah, sometimes.

V. Vegetables you don’t like: PARSNIP PARSNIP TASTES LIKE ARSE RIP**

W. What makes you run late: Me.

X. X-Rays you’ve had: None.

Y. Yummy food you make: Tiramisu and lemon pudding and teriyaki chicken and some other stuff and man, I love cooking so much but couldn't they have thought of something better for Y, like "Young and the Restless." (Both.)

Z. Zoo animal favourites:

And so, the bear photos continue.

*I still feel like a bit of a dick when I say 'blogosphere'

**I wish I had thought of this clever rhyme when I was 12 and could have busted it out at Christmas dinner.

I also hate those people who get mised lollies when watching movies and then spend their time rustling around for the two or three kinds they actually like.

You make yummy food and you won't try to make annoying conversation while watching TV. Please adopt me.

tiramisu, lemon pudding and teriyaki chicken seems like an odd combination. You did mean all together right?

trutru said...

you are so damn funny. will you marry me ?

IT IS ALLY said...

Kat - YES. And people who slurp their soup.

Awesomeness - Of course! I will train you to make beer and Sunday paper runs. If that is ok.

Tenny - Of course. It is a tiramisu of lemons and chicken. It is delightful!

trutru - Of course. Incidentally, that is my third marriage proposal this week. I'm not even kidding. And I choose YOU
