The A to Z of Me… and you.

The A to Z of Me… and you.

I was cruising through one of my new favourite sites Pencil Box and found this sweet post. I decided to keep the tradition going and do a list of my own. Please feel free to do one on your own blog or in the comments.

A. Age: 27… almost 28.
B. Bed size: Queen, but one day I’ll have a giant king sized bed where I can get far enough way from Mr Lava (my partner) so I don’t get sweated out of bed every summer from his man heat.
C. Chore that you hate: Anything to do with floors. Mopping, vacuuming. I’d honestly rather clean the toilet.
D. Dogs: My family has a rat dog called Maggie with one eye. She’s… interesting.
E. Essential start to your day: A healthy breakfast and a snuggle with my man.
F. Favorite color: In design and house interior, I’m having a very orange moment. For clothing, I’m doing off-white a lot recently.
G. Gold or Silver: Either but only one at a time. Including hardware on my handbag and metal on my sunglasses. I’m weird like that.
H. Height: Just a smidge under 5’8, which makes me too short to dance at the Moulin Rouge and/or be a runway model. I’m heartbroken. Seriously.
I. Instruments you play: None, unless you include the recorder when I was in year three. Or guitar in Guitar Hero. I’m ace at that.
J. Job title: Freelance writer.
K. Kids: Not now thank you, I have a plant.
L. Live: Melbourne.
M. Mother’s name: Sally.
N. Nicknames: None. ‘Carly’ doesn’t really lend itself to nicknames which is why my parents chose it. I have a friend who is trying to make C-Jobs work. It’s not really happening though.
O. Overnight hospital stays: Not that I can recall. Although I’m clumsy, I’m also a ninja which means I’ve saved myself stitches and broken bones on many occasions. Like yesterday when I got hit by a car on my bike. I kind of stepped off the bike mid-air and was able to stand and watch as my basket-bearing Nancy bike rolled over the top of the car. I’m fine by the way and so is my bike. As I said, I’m a ninja.
P. Pet peeves: People with no spacial awareness, people who start sentences with ‘I’m not racist but…’, people who offer to help when you’re almost finished and A Current Affair or similar sensationalist ‘news’ shows.
Q. Quote from a movie: “Some birds aren’t meant to be caged, their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away the part of you that knows it was a sin to keep them locked up, does rejoice, but your world is that much more drab and empty that they are gone.” – Morgan Freeman in The Shawshank Redemption.
R. Right or left handed: Right but I’m ambidextrous so I eat with my fork in my right hand. I also slice things with my left hand. I’m a little odd.
S. Siblings: One brother. Who is thirty and single with a beautiful 1-year-old daughter. Any takers…?
U. Underwear: Nude and seamless. It’s the only kind.
V. Vegetable you hate: Are pickles a vegetable? I don’t even really hate pickles… I’m such a food nerd. Are chokos a vegetable? I don’t like chokos. My grandparents grew them and they taste like wet roasted toilet paper.
W. What makes you run late: I don’t do late. I’m far too uptight to be late to things.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: None. As above, I’m far too uptight to require x rays.
Y. Yummy food that you make: My chilli beef is pretty amazing.
Z. Zoo animal: Monkeys or apes. Especially the really, really tiny ones. Any tiny animals are good but they have to be REALLY tiny. Small just won’t cut it.

Oh and do feel free to let me know about your lists on Twitter or Facebook.

Carly is the founding editor of Smaggle which launched in 2007 back when blogging was weird. She has appeared in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Cosmopolitan and Cleo magazines. Hoop earrings are totally her thing and she almost got run over by Myf Warhurst while out jogging one day.

    I’m also just under 5’8″. I always wanted to grow that fraction of an inch more just so I had THE OPTION of being a model. Because, you know, I didn’t WANT to be, but I COULD have been. Totally. For sure. The big hips and the frizzy hair would not otherwise have hampered me.

    That quote from Shawshank has to be one of my favourite movie quotes of all time… the English literature teacher in me loves the extended metaphor!

    Yes, I think the really tiny monkeys are cute. Besides, if a monkey is going to throw poo at you, you *want* it to be the tiny monkey.
