A to Z: About Me

Sometimes my craft blog is not very personal. Yeah, you know I like polka dots and baby hats. You know I'm a procrastinator. You even know what my niece looks like. But do you know what I gorge on while watching episodes of The Simpsons and Monk?

Following in the footsteps of my friend and fellow blogger at Elephant is Love, I decided to fill out an A-Z survey. Maybe you'll learn something you didn't know! And if you do A-Z on your blog, link to it in the comments so I can learn something about you, too.

A. Age: 29. Still deciding how I'm going to persuade friends to cancel holiday party plans so they'll join me for a 30th birthday celebration in December.

B. Birthplace: Kentucky

C. Chore you hate: Laundry. This would not be so bad if I didn't have to lug all my laundry up and down several flights of stairs and carry it two blocks away.

D. Dogs: I don't have a dog, but someday -- when I have a yard and a larger space -- I would like to. He'll probably be a Wheaten Terrier. Or maybe a Scottish Terrier. Or maybe he'll just be a nice little dog I pick up at a rescue. Who knows!

E. Essential start to your day: Face washing. I can't even look out the window without first washing my face.

F. Favorite Color: Purple or blue. I could just combine them and go with indigo.

G. Gorges on: Peanut butter. Anything peanut butter.

H. Hoards: Craft supplies, duh!

I. Instruments you play: Piano and (barely) fiddle

J. Job Title: Web Producer

K. Kicks: Pretty much flats every day, except in winter when I wear boots that I end up loathing by January.

L. Last read: Life by Keith Richards

M. Music all-time fave: the Beatles

N. Nicknames: Red (unacceptable if you're a man over the age of 12, unless you're my relative)

O. Office decor: We're discouraged from having a lot of personal items at our desk, but I have photos of my niece and nephew, a magazine cut-out photo of the Muppets, and random papers that were relevant months ago but aren't really now. I should probably take those down.

P. Phobias: Mice. I realize NYC is not the ideal place for me. Mice are #1 on my list of reasons to move. This is only one thing on a list of hundreds of things that I'm scared of. Clowns? Heights? Mascots? Yes, yes, and yes.

Q. Quote of the day: "I went all Kentucky on you and didn't give an area code with the phone number." -- said to my coworker today.

R. Random fact: I'm the only redhead in my family. Yeah, figure that one out. But don't tell me when you do. I prefer to live in the dark.

S. Siblings: One younger brother

T. Things that tick me off: Laziness and people who complain a lot. Just shut up and get on with it!

U. Underwear: Usually cotton, and it's gotta be comfy. Nothing digging around down there.

V. Vegetables you hate: Peas

W. Word of the day: perspicacious. It's fun to try and say it. Go ahead. Try.

X. Xylophone concerts given: 3, all under the age of 5.

Y. Yummy food that you make: I've been told my biscuits and gravy are not too shabby, but I must credit my mom for that. I also make a really nice creamy peanut butter pie. Mmmm. Pie.

Z. Zoo animals: Most animals scare me. I like the penguins because they're behind glass and pretty fun to watch. I doubt they'd eat me if given the chance. Monkeys on the other hand? They'd totally eat me.


  1. I'm the only redhead in my family, too! For four generations. Crazy!

    Do you mind if I post this on my blog (with my answers, of course, but your credit!)?

  2. omg you are totally hilarious! yay! i found more common-ness (commonality?) between us! i hate peas too!

    and we be Beatles fans!!! i love you!!! hahahaha
    i am so gonna perspicacious now.

  3. I love the a-z thing! All my favorite blogs are doing it, I need to do it soon.

    Almost 30! Yay (I just turned 21! haha) but here's a cool article I found on Hello Giggles about turning 30, maybe you'll enjoy it :]

  4. I looooooove that you say you play fiddle. Not violin.

  5. Love this survey. I think I'm most shocked about the office fact... I would think because you work in a creative environment that they would want your office space to reflect you! Loved getting to know more about you, Ashley!
