The ABCs of Amy Lauren

So, apparently *everyone* is doing this survey in their blogs, and since I’ve really enjoyed reading them, I decided to do it too.  Here goes!

A. Age: 25.

B. Bed size: Full. Big enough, but not too big.

C. Chore you dislike: I really hate cleaning the inside of my tub/shower. I still do it obsessively.

D. Dogs: None, unfortunately. The joys of apartment life =/.

E. Essential start to your day: COFFEE (generally black with lots of artificial sweetener), check twitter/facebook/google reader/e-mail.

F. Favorite color: Blue, Green, and Purple.  Really I just like bright colors, though.

G. Gold or silver: Silver

H. Height: I always thought I was 5’0″, but the last time I went to the doc, they told me I was 4’11” and 3/4 of an inch.  Geez people… I think I’ll round up :).

I. Instruments you play(ed): I played flute and piccolo in middle and high school.  I haven’t tried to play in years, but I’m pretty sure that I can’t anymore.

J. Job title: Dorkumentation Extraordinaire.  But my company’s human resources department insists that I’m a “Technical Writer”.

K. Kids: Eh, maybe in 4-5 years. I don’t want to lose my freedom (or my body. Yeah, I’m vain).

L. Live: Coastal South Carolina.

M. Mom’s name: Mommy… what else?

N. Nicknames: Ames, A.L.

O. Overnight hospital stays: Not yet, knock on wood. Hopefully not until “K”.

P. Pet peeves: I really don’t like it when people are chronically negative or put others down in order to feel better about themselves.  I know everyone has their negative nancy moments, but those should be moments, not your whole life.

Q. Quote from a movie: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God; your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” — Nelson Mandela (paraphrased).  From Akeelah and the Bee.

R. Righty or lefty: Righty…

S. Siblings: Nopers, my parents were lucky to have me. My parents were both 39…

T. Time you wake up: Usually between 6:30 and 7 on weekdays. On weekends, I try to sleep in, but I still wake up at 8ish.

U. Underwear: The ones I get for free from all the Victoria’s Secret cards they send in the mail.

V. Vegetables you dont’ like: Not a mushroom fan, but I do like portabello burgers… oh, and no broccoli stems.

W. What makes you run late: Run late? Um… I’m almost always EARLY. I am my father’s child.

X. X-rays you’ve had: Teeth, chest, nasal passages… I think that’s it.

Y. Yummy food you make: I made some really yummy oreos at Christmas. I very rarely cook anything- I survive on cereal and milk, oatmeal, peanut butter, veggie burgers, salad, and frozen pizza. Seriously.

Z. Zoo animal favorites: I love animals in general.  But not flamingos. They stink.  I really loved seeing the pandas at the National Zoo a few years ago.
