About You, About Me

*found in the abyss of old email folders

1. What is your occupation?
3 jobs currently – Blockbuster CSR / Below the Belt sales / just (literally) got hired at Money Mart (wish me luck…) / plus occasional nanny for Nephie

2. Do you like banana sandwiches?
Perhaps… if toasted with PB instead of regular butter and definitely only with a good cup o’ tea.

3. What are you listening to right now?
HGTV – I should change it ’cause I’m not watching anyway.

4. What was the last thing you ate?
Umm… Nephie and I shared some Harvest Cheddar Sun Chips about 4 hours ago and that’s all I’ve eaten today. Right now, I’m drinking a green tea frap from Starbucks so I stay up at least until my boyfriend gets home.

5. Do you wish on stars?
Every once in awhile… sure, but I regularly wish on minutes like 12:34 and… eyelashes that fall out. (Gross, eh?)

6. If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
Crayola’s denim – It’s a very lovely blue. (I was always jealous of all the kids who had the huge Crayola packs… My 24 pack never came with a sharpener… Our first Christmas together, my boyfriend got me the 94 pack!! …And I still have them) (P.S. I always loved the fluorescents!)

7. How is the weather right now?
Pretty nice actually but way too sunny! (Odd, I know but I HATE sunshine! I much prefer cloudy, rainy days… at least to look at.)

Karen from Money Mart who just offered me a job

Oh my dear cousin, Teena! I love her!! (And she’s a wonderful mother!! Like a breath of fresh air. *smoOOoch*)

10. How old are you today?
25, but only for 5 more days

11. Favorite drink?
Chocolate milk!! And tea.

12. Favourite sport to watch?
Sports are boring – I only watch to make fun of how ugly players are. (Ryan Smith and Steve Nash for example…. YUCK! But at least they aren’t as bad as that toothless guy who plays for the Sharks whose name I can’t recall.)

13. Have you ever dyed your hair?
My hair has not been it’s natural colour since I was about 16… Right now, it’s half almost black (underneath-side) and half natural-half grown out blonde highlights on the top. (I even had a blue chunk for awhile too… After about 2 days, it turned green though.)

14. Do you wear contacts or glasses?
Nope! I used to be proud of my 20/20 but I’ve noticed my eyesight fading as I age. I have trouble focusing on things farther away and digital clocks (ie. alarm clocks that are red or yellow).

What happened to Number 19?!? It got lost.

20. What do you do to vent anger?
cry…. sleep…. growl… get snappy (but that only makes me feel worse so I guess it’s not venting)

21. What was your favorite toy as a child?
dishes (ironically)

22. Fall or spring?
Fall… Spring feels nice but looks terrible.

23. Hugs or kisses?
Depends from who (whom??!) – I loveNephie’s kisses and family hugs, either from my boyfriend, and neither from people I don’t know well. (Or don’t like!)

24. Cherry or Blueberry?
Definitely blueberry. I don’t like cherry unless it’s a cough drop. But blueberry isn’t great either… Only in muffins and yogurt.

25. Do you want your friends to email you back?
Only if their answers are funny (which they usually are) but no one ever has time!!

26. Who is most likely to respond?
hee hee – If I harass him, my boyfriend might… Other than that… possibly Geena in a few months… maybe Katie if she’s REALLY bored…. No one else ever sends these back to me (You all SUCK! … I love you.)

my boyfriend
