The A to Z’s of Emily Abigail!

Since I am trying to avoid doing any actual work at the moment (I’m looking at you, pile of essays I must grade before Monday), I thought I’d distract myself by participating in  this A to Z of me that I found on Liz‘s blog! So, here we go!

A. Age: 25
B. Bed Size: Queen
C. Chore that I hate: Folding & putting my laundry away. I swear I’d pay someone to do this for me if I could.
D. Dogs: I have an adorable German Shepherd/Border Collie mix named Harper!
E. Essential start to your day: Coffee. Coffee. Coffee.
F. Favorite color: Any shade of green or blue.
G. Gold or Silver: Silver.
H. Height: 5’5″
I. Instruments you play: I used to play the clarinet in high school, but I quit after the 9th grade because I didn’t think it was “cool”.
J. Job Title: I’m a high school English teacher at a local charter school.
K. Kids: They’re cute, but I feel slightly nervous around them.
L. Live: Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnati, Ohio
M. Mother’s name: Valerie
N. Nicknames: Mostly just any variation of Emily (i.e. Em, Emmy, etc.)
O. Overnight hospital stays: None so far. Thank goodness!
P. Pet peeves: Small talk (I’m not good at it). People who are crude just for the sake of being crude. I guess that’s about it. I’m sure there are more that I’m not thinking of.
Q. Quote from a movie: “Too many guys think I’m a concept, or I complete them, or I’m gonna make them alive. But I’m just a fucked-up girl who’s looking for my own peace of mind; don’t assign me yours.” From Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
R. Right or Left: Handed? I’m actually left-handed!
S. Siblings: One radiant older sister. She’s actually expecting her first baby soon! :)
T. Time you wake up: My alarm is set for 5:55 AM. I typically wake up by 6:15 though. The snooze button is my friend.
U. Underwear: My current pair are white & from H&M. That is all.
V. Vegetable you hate: I’m trying to think. I like mostly all vegetables. Except maybe beets. They kind of weird me out.
W. What makes you run late: Trying to pick out an outfit in the morning! Every. Single. Time. I really need to start setting out my outfits the night before.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Teeth.
Y. Yummy food you make: Honestly, I need to get better about making food. My boyfriend is just too good at it. I’ve made a pretty delicious vegetarian curry before! I’m good at making pasta dishes too!
Z. Zoo animal: I can only choose one!? Well, I love the giraffes & the gorillas. They are always so animated. Oh, and the lions! Sorry, it’s just too hard. I really love the zoo!

Well, that was fun & killed about…seven minutes! If you do this, make sure to leave me a comment telling me!

  1. I have the same job as you, so I did the quiz out of solidarity. I like your blog! Added to my blogroll.

    A. Age: 27 (28 next month)

    B. Bed Size: Queen

    C. Chore that I hate: Washing dishes. I love cooking, but I hate the aftermath.

    D. Dogs: I have a pug. I don’t think I’m a dog person, but he’s not really a proper dog, so it balances out.

    E. Essential start to your day: Coffee. Coffee. Coffee.

    F. Favorite color: I like combinations better than just colors: grey/yellow, black/white/red, blue/yellow

    G. Gold or Silver: I really like both, these days.

    H. Height: Five feet nothing in my socks.

    I. Instruments you play:The ukelele.

    J. Job Title: I’m a high school English teacher at a local charter school. I am having a very hard time imagining being anything else.

    K. Kids: Some days I want one achingly, some days I can’t be bothered to get off the couch to play with the dog. I think I’m probably not ready yet.

    L. Live: Denver, Colorado. Barnum neighborhood. It’s a fairly useless tract of land that P.T. Barnum tried to sell to suckers as a paradise, but no one was fooled, so now it’s low-income housing from the 1950s.

    M. Mother’s name: Robin Aileen, which is my middle name too.

    N. Nicknames: I used to have a lot ten years ago: Shananers, Shananigans,etc. Heather calls me Bop.

    O. Overnight hospital stays: None so far.

    P. Pet peeves: Not signaling when changing lanes on the freeway, passive-aggressive people, and families that get in each other’s business for the sheer glee of the gossip.

    Q. Quote from a movie: “You’ll never be a first class human being or a first class woman until you learn to have some regard for human frailty.” -The Philadelphia Story

    R. Right or Left: Right.

    S. Siblings: One sister who is still deciding who she’s going to be, and a seriously neat brother who seems to have made himself successful and baggage-less by sheer force of will.

    T. Time you wake up: 6:10. And then 7.

    U. Underwear: Yes, I have some.

    V. Vegetable you hate: Lima beans. Yurgh.

    W. What makes you run late: Oversleeping. No matter how early I go to bed, I can never get up when I’m supposed to.

    X. X-Rays you’ve had: Teeth.

    Y. Yummy food you make: Roast beef with pepper rub, all kinds of soup, black bean chili, loaded nachos, homemade pizza with goat cheese and artichokes…and just about anything else.

    Z. Zoo animal: The orangutan. He makes me feel like I am in a sci-fi novel where humans are now the ones in zoos.
