Jumping on the ABCs Bandwagon

I usually don't partake in the trends floating around the blogosphere but I enjoyed reading these so maybe someone will enjoy mine!

The ABCs of Me:

(A) Age: 33

(B) Bed Size: King, of course. I'm the worst sleeper ever and I need all the room I can get!
(C) Chore You Hate: Cleaning floors and bathrooms. So hubby does those and I do the laundry that he hates. I like warm, clean clothes and I always watch some trashy TV while I fold so it works out fine for me!
(D) Dogs? I like well-behaved dogs. But I like my leather couch more. From what I understand, even the most well-behaved dog is not good for a leather couch.
(E) Essential Start Your Day Item: Checking Facebook on my phone so my brain doesn't dwell on how early I have to get up.
(F) Favorite Color: Purple
(G) Gold or Silver? Umm...platinum is better than both.
(H) Height: 5'8" and 3/4"
(I) Instruments You Play: Clarinet and Saxophone, I'd like to better at the piano
(J) Job Title: Physician
(K) Kids: No, thank you. I politely decline.
(L) Live: Downtown Chi-town!
(M) Mom's Name: Wanda
(N) Nicknames: Nelson (my last name)
(O) Overnight Hospital Stays? All the freakin' time for overnight calls. NO FUN!!! Why anyone thinks its a good idea for docs to work 30 hours IN A ROW should come be the patient we have to see at hour 30. Who wants a tired, grumpy doctor??
(P) Pet Peeve: Slow walkers and people who are late when I am depending on them to be on time
(Q) Quote from a Movie: I'm really bad at remembering movie quotes....or even movie plots. When I watch a movie for the 2nd time, it's like I'm seeing it for the first time because I forget the entire plot.
(R) Right or Left Handed? Right
(S) Siblings: Younger brother- he's a fighter pilot. For real.
(T) Time You Wake Up? 4:30 AM most days, 7:00 if I'm "sleeping in". I don't know the last time I slept past 9 am.
(U) Underwear: I own over 4 weeks worth of underwear so that I don't have to do laundry very often.
(V) Vegetable You Dislike: Haven't found one yet.
(W) What Makes You Run Late: I really don't like to be late and very rarely am.
(X) X-Rays You've Had Done: Dental x-rays, 1 chest xray, I think that's it.
(Y) Yummy Food You Make: Cheese cookies, banana bread, spinach dip, stuffed peppers.
(Z) Zoo, Favorite Animal: I'm anti-zoo. I don't think it's humane to lock large animals up in cages. But my favorite wild animal is by far the bison. I am truly, truly in love with bison. We may one day move out West in part so that I can be closer to bison. I'd like to become better at photography so I can get some fabulous shots of bison. I own all the books I've been able to find published about bison. Really, I'm not kidding.


  1. i am enjoying these too! awesome!

  2. I have to say we have 2 "small-ish" (20-25lbs) dogs and a leather couch and chair and both pieces of furniture have remained in excellent condition (no scratches, abnormal wear, etc). We've had both the furniture and dogs for 6+ years as well so I'd say it's a pretty fair assumption that our furniture and dogs have and will continue to coexist peacefully!
