A-Z, All About Me

So after been sick and catching up on blog reading, I first head over to Shameka's blog and of course she tagged me with this Meme:

ACCENT: While I have lived all over with my father being an IBM'er, I predomintaley lived in North Carolina. I had a southern accent when I first moved to NYC 11 years ago. I never picked up a NY accent, with the exception of a couple of words, and I lost my real southern accent. However, when I go home and visit or talk to someone with a strong accent, mine tends to come back out.

BREAKFAST OR NO BREAKFAST: Gotta start the day with breakfast. If I don't, I don't want to be around me.

CHORE I DON'T CARE FOR: Laundry. I hate having to lug everything to a laundrymat every week, no matter the weather conditions.

DOG OR CAT: I grew up with both. When I was married we had a slew of dogs. I wouldn't mind having a cat now.

ESSENTIAL ELECTRONICS: Cell phone and computer.

FAVORITE COLOGNE: I'm allergic to most perfume's and cologne's.

GOLD OR SILVER: Grew up wearing gold jewelry but now prefer silver.

HANDBAG I CARRY MOST OFTEN: Well living in the city and having to take public transportation everywhere, I carry my backpack most often. It can carry my running gear and everthing else I need for the day. When I go out, I generally grab my little black shoulder bag.

INSOMNIA: Only have insomia when I have something pressing on my mind or I am really hot.

JOB TITLE: Presentation Specialist Lead

KIDS: No kids but 10 nieces and nephews.

LIVING ARRANGEMENTS: I have been renting a basement apartment for the past 2.5 years.

MOST ADMIRABLE TRAIT: I will always be there for you.


OVERNIGHT HOSPITAL STAY: Had my gall bladder removed in 2002. Not fun.

PHOBIAS: Growing old alone.

QUOTE: "To Have Loved and Lost Is Better Than To Not Have Loved At All"

REASON TO SMILE: I am alive and healthy.

SIBLINGS: 4 sisters and 1 brother. All older.

TIME I WAKE UP: Alarm goes off at 4:30am. Got to be at work for 6am.

UNUSUAL SKILL OR TALENT: Fast Reader, Fast Knitter. Do those count as talents? Don't have any unusual skills that I can think of. I am just me!


WORST HABIT: Biting my fingernails when one is snagged and I don't have a clipper or nail file on hand.

YUMMY STUFF: Mint chocolate chip ice cream. Can eat it 365 days a year. Also love cheese pizza.

ZOO ANIMAL I LIKE MOST: Seals. So cute and adorable.

That's it folks! Who to tag, who to tag? I tag Kim.


  1. How interesting! I don't have a gall bladder, either. Mine was diagnosed right before my wedding and acted up so badly during my honeymoon that was came home a week and a half early. :(

  2. I just knew you were going to tag Kim next. Hehe!!! So, did you get any sleep this weekend in the heatwave? More importantly, did you get to knit???

  3. This is too funny! I just commented at Shameka's that I'm going to get tagged wiuth this soon. Cool! Mr. Kim's favorite ice cream is Mint Choco chip.

  4. I'm react badly to synthetic perfumes too, but love essential oils. Cool A to Z.

  5. I love the meme and the getting to know a little more about you. I'm waiting for Kim to post it. :D
