Another Meme!

I found it at New Kid on the Hallway, and have very little else to do right now. Unless you count things I ought to be doing...

A - Accent: flat prairie Canadian accent. I don't say "aboot," but apparently the only really distinctive thing that we do is accent the ends of lots of sentences like they're questions. It's the "Eh?" syndrome.
B - Breast size: I'll stick with NK's answer: "same as this letter of the alphabet. :-)"
C - Chore you hate: Actually, probably washing dishes. It's always there! Bah! And washing is so gross. I'd rather dry. (Fortunately, Chris likes washing.)
D - Dad's name: David.
E - Essential make-up: blush (because I'm so pale) and mascara (because my eyelashes are blonde, or transparent).
F - Favourite perfume/cologne: allergic, and so they all make my eyeballs feel like I'm being poked by needles. Thank you, perfume wearers of the world. I love fruit scents, though, and sometimes really natural scents aren't a problem.
G - Gold or Silver: gold. Rose gold is becoming my most favourite, as a result of Chris's ring.
H - Hometown: Regina.
I - Insomnia: many times yes. And I'm married to a snorer/talks about calculators in his sleep/elbows me in the eye in his sleep-type sleeper.
J - Job title: student? I guess Teaching Assistant.
K - Kids: none, although having Chris around is quite often like spending time with a very excited five-year old. Man, now I sound like I'm complaining about that. Keep in mind that I love five-year-olds.
L - Living arrangements: 2-bedroom basement suite.
M - Mom's birthplace: An imaginary place called Park Valley. (It's a farming community, not found on maps.)
N - Favourite Noldo: Whaaaa? I have to say, regardless of what this means, that my favourite Noldo is Ky. (By the way: this came with its own "u"s in favourite! Huzzah!)
O - Overnight hospital stay: Not since I was born, although at the time I spent a lot of time at the hospital, having jaundice.
P - Phobia: falling. (Chris just asked "Only one phobia?") Okay, okay, spiders. Oh yeah, and sharp objects. Serious fear of those, exacerbated by the knife incident. And the unknown. Oh, and large crowds where I don't know anyone, such as Wal-Mart on Christmas Eve. Um...
Q - Favorite Quote: "...any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee." -- John Donne. Mostly the "I am involved in mankind" part.
R - Religious affiliation: Christian.
S - Siblings: One sister, one brother (sister older and brother younger), one sister-in-law and one brother-in-law (both younger).
T - Time I get up: Later and later. I was getting up at 9-ish for a while, and today I slept in until 10am. I need to fight against this trend.
U - Unnatural hair colors: I went for years with blonde highlights, but now I have a tendency to dye it various shades of strawberry blonde. It was really really red for the wedding.
V - Vegetable you refuse to eat: tomatoes, unless they're in the form of ketchup, or chopped up really small in something.
W - Worst habit: See my semi-pseudonym? Procrastination.
X - X-rays you've had: dental, and then all kinds of chest, throat and mouth ones as part of my allergy testing, to rule out other health conditions.
Y - Yummy foods you make: pasta sauce with tomato and mushroom soup, Confused Pizza, fondues, marinated pork chops, pies.
Z - Zodiac sign: Saggitarius.

So is it the blogging or the being married that is making you more brazen and allowing you to "B" more scandalous? My bet is an unholy marriage of the idea of safety of being on the other side of a computer screen and the fact that you're now fully a woman that has made you more...interesting.

Derek out.

I don't know that I approve of this discussion of being "fully a woman," in relation to me. I think that it's more that I have a cousin who worked at La Senza for a million years, and bras is something that we talk about a lot (and used to talk about more).
