The fabulous Southern Girl did this little meme and offered it up to any of her friends who wanted to have a go at it, too. I can never resist a good survey, so here we go!
ACCENT: I always thought I had sort of a neutral accent until I heard myself on my radio show in college. Hoo boy, I'm 100% Southern. And quite proud of it. :)
I DON’T DRINK: Egg-nog. Blech.
CHORE I HATE: Taking out the trash. I have a physical aversion to it.
PETS: Oliver, a blue parakeet who's afraid of anything that moves, including people, his own feathers and air; and Dacey, a mackerel tabby who merely lets us live here.
ESSENTIAL ELECTRONICS: The DVR. I really don't know if I could live without the thing. How else would I be sure never to miss a new episode of The Fashionista Diaries on SoapNet?
PERFUME: Ralph Lauren's Romance and any good-smelling vanilla body spray. Not together, though.
GOLD OR SILVER: Silver, all the way. I only own a couple pieces of gold jewelry, and I rarely wear them. I'm not a fan.
INSOMNIA: With pregnancy, it's a bit more common for me than usual. Most of the time I'm asleep less than 10 minutes after the light goes off.
JOB TITLE: Wife and almost-mama.
MOST ADMIRED TRAIT: Hmm. I really don't know. I asked John and he said he admires my strong convictions about things. His opinion is what matters most to me, so there you go.
KIDS: TBA in November/December! :)
PHOBIA: Somebody breaking into my house while I'm in the shower; spiders; house fires
RELIGION: Christian, specifically Presbyterian (PCA)
TIME I WAKE UP: Most days I can get up whenever I want. I usually get up around 6:30 when John's leaving for work, but if I know my body needs more sleep, I'm up no later than 8:30.
UNUSUAL TALENT/SKILL: I never know how to answer this. I don't stand out in any particular way, really. I'm dull, I guess. :)
VEGETABLE: I love most of them, really. I have zero love for rutabega, though. *shudder*
WORST HABIT: Complete and utter laziness sometimes, which leads to mega procrastination. I think having a kid might whip some of that out of me, though!
X-RAYS: I've had my left knee x-rayed when I fell a few years ago... regular dental stuff... nothing else, I think.
MY FAVORITE MEAL: Lately I've been making carbonara a lot. I do it with hot sausage, diced tomatoes, black olives and mushrooms. Mmm. Of course, it's got to have garlic bread with it, and either ice water or tea.
