Jillybean A thru Z to Know ME!

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

I thought since my last blog was rather a downer, not that much has changed from then, I'd post something a little more "fun" and maybe a way to get to know me a little better. I haven't been able to make it to local Spark rallies and I'm not always on message boards these days, so I get the feeling some of ya'll think I may be a "lost cause"... or maybe that's just more feelings of isolation stemming from the rest of things going on in my life. It probably is, but hard not to feel that way when blogs go un-commented, pages go un-commented, status updates go un-commented. You know how it is, I'm sure. Anyway, back to the fun stuff:

A. Age: 28

B. Bed size: Queen

C. Chore you dislike: Vacuuming

D. Dogs: 1 that lives with my parents. He's an old guy and pretty close to the end... but, he is loved!!

E. Essential start to your day: 16oz of water immediately upon waking up.

F. Favorite color: Green

G. Gold or silver: Silver. I've never liked the look of yellow gold on me.

H. Height: 5’ 6"

I. Instruments you play(ed): I played flute in elementary school, guitar in high school, and I'm a classically trained mezzo soprano who is seriously out of practice.

J. Job title: Erm... Student? Someday it will be Registered Dietitian. :-)

K. Kids: None, thank goodness.

L. Live: Sunny San Diego

M. Mom's name: Tracy

N. Nicknames: Jilly, Steve, Barf, G, Jirr

O. Overnight hospital stays: Just last summer of '10. My ovaries exploded. Twice.

P. Pet peeves: Arrogance, Ignorance, and Rudeness

Q. Quote from a movie: "Sweet! I like that. Because you don't have... chlamydia. And I know that. And that s--- is everywhere!"

R. Righty or Lefty: Righty

S. Siblings: 2 younger, but definitely not smaller, brothers.

T. Time you wake up: Around 9am if I've gotten an okay night of sleep.

U. Underwear: Black

V. Vegetables you don't like: Raw bulb onion and I go through fresh tomato phases.

W. What makes you run late: The bus and my own exhaustion

X. X-rays you've had: Wrist (and it's still messed up!), feet, knee, teeth

Y. Yummy food you make: It'll probably be easier to list things I've made that weren't so yummy, starting with burnt popcorn balls and rice. I also failed at making a good hot and sour soup.

Z. Zoo animal favorites: Flamingoes

    Q. Quote from a movie: When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the desire to mate every second of the day. It is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every part of your body. No... don't blush. I am telling you some truths. For that is just being in love; which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over, when being in love has burned away. Doesn't sound very exciting, does it? But it is!
