A to Z Survey (Why Do I Love These Things so Much?)

I am a major sucker for the surveys that occasionally drift around the blog world. Learning more about other bloggers is fun, and filling them out myself makes me reminisce about the early days of e-mail, when we passed these around from awkward e-mail address to awkward e-mail address (my first e-mail address was carrottop03@yahoo.com. So much coolness). When I saw this latest “A to Z” survey popping up on several of my favorite blogs, I knew I’d have to do it, too. Enjoy learning more boring facts about me!

A – Age: 29… for another week

B – Biggest Fear: Finding a body. It’s always a “jogger” who finds it. Always.

I posted this picture on Instagram one time and someone commented, “That looks like a trail you’d find a body on.” Now I think about that every time I run here… which is almost every day.

C – Current Time: 8:40 A.M. Summer is awesome.

D – Drink You Had Last:   Coffee.

E – Easiest Person To Talk To: Aside from Jordan, I’d say my best friend, Sam. She’s an awesome listener.

She was also an awesome maid-of-honor.

F – Favorite Song:  It changes daily. Right now, I’m stuck on “Honey, I’m Good.”

G – Grossest Memory: That one guy I dated in college. Kidding, kidding. Kind of.

H – Hometown:  Olathe, Colorado. Home of the Pirates, because we have those in Colorado.

I – In Love With: Jordan. And food.

J – Jealous Of: I’m gonna have to side with Natalie on this one: People who live in the mountains. Although I am closer to the mountains than Natalie is, I’m still jealous of people who can be there in a matter of minutes.

K – Kindest Person You Know: Probably my mother-in-law. She has the biggest heart of anyone I know.

L – Longest Relationship:  Are we talking romantic relationships, or do friendships count? J is my longest romantic relationship (10 years this fall. He wins by a lot. No one else made it past three dates [see letter G]), but my BFF Hallie and I met on our first day of college — move-in day in the dorms. It was love at first sight.

This is from 2004 -- the year we moved into our apartment. Look how young we were (and how awesome my bangs were). Now we're all grown up and she has a baby. Weird.

M – Middle Name: Lea

N – Number of Siblings:  One big brother. Plus two (soon to be three) sisters-in-law and two brothers-in-law

O – One Wish:  To not have to think about money and be able to travel whenever and wherever I want.

I mean, world peace.

P – Person You Spoke To On The Phone Last: My parents. They’re the only people I talk to on the phone.

Q – Question You’re Always Asked:  Why do you run so much? Or, during the school year, “Can I go to the bathroom?”

R – Reason To Smile: Life!

S – Song You Last Sang: Um.. this is embarrassing.. “Get Lucky.” It was on the radio. I sang along.

T – Time You Woke Up: 5:45. And then I saw that it was super foggy out, so I went back to sleep for a bit until it burned off enough that drivers and I could see each other while I ran. Again, summer = awesome.

U – Underwear Color: Red. Is it sad that I had to look?

V – Vacation Destination:  ALL THE PLACES! But seriously, read my last post and then tell me where I should go next.

W – Worst Habit:  According to Jordan, clicking my nails on my teeth. Apparently that’s “annoying.”

X – X-Rays You’ve Had:  Teeth, of course. Thumb, when I folded it up in a chair when I was 10. Foot, when this happened. Abdomen, when one of the bajillion GI docs I’ve been to thought an x-ray of my intestines was a good idea.

Y – Your Favorite Food:  Another one that varies, but cereal is pretty constant. Hashtag I’llneverbepaleo

Z – Zodiac Sign:  Leo. Not that I care.

Well, that was fun.

Pick a letter and answer it in the comments!

Did you have a super-cool e-mail address when e-mail was new?

  1. awww, thanks for “K”! We were in your beloved mountains today. Oh so briefly…well not really. Sam got to chatting with the wood man, so I roamed around and smelled the air. The lot was right next to the river above Drake and the fact that is was a lumber place made the mountains smell even better. Very nice man, and we came home with the “blue” ponderosa pine to line the outside of the bathroom in the shop. Inside is almost done! Have a fun weekend!!!

  2. My first email address was KutiePi555…. yeah. SUPER embarrassing. My first AIM name was BlazePup, because Blaze was my dog’s name. Now that I am no longer 12, I realize how that sounded to most people who did not know that my dog’s name was Blaze.
