I'm resorting to "things about me" posts in order to fill my blog space. Forgive me, and enjoy.
Accent: Some say it twangs slightly of my Minnesota upbringing. I think it's just blatantly American, as anyone non-American will immediately point out.
Booze: Southern Comfort. But I forgot what it tastes like.
Chore I Hate: I love chores. They distract me from what I'm supposed to be doing.
Dog or Cat: Both, preferably. Realistically, neither.
Essential Electronics: The Mac family, consisting of various necessities.
Favorite Cologne: Whatever mingles with the scent of the man that I love.
Gold or Silver: Platinum.
Hometown: Plymouth, Minnesota.
Insomnia: Ha. I sleep like the dead.
Job Title: PhD student, and when avoiding the student label, teacher.
Living arrangements: Alone for almost seven years (for now), except one brief, hazardous roommate experience.
Most admirable traits: Determination, loyalty, and stubbornness (really, it can be good).
Number of sexual partners: Should never, ever be confessed. By anyone, to anyone.
Overnight hospital stays: Don't think I ever stayed the night.
Phobias: Big crowds, small elevators.
Quote: "Men create war to compete with women, who create life." (Sharon Doubiago)
Siblings: One, a younger brother.
Time I wake up: Usually between 6am and 8am, depending on the degree of laziness.
Unusual talent or skill: I have talents, but none of them are unusual.
Vegetable I love: I love all vegetables. Except water chestnuts.
Worst habit: Procrastination.
X-rays: Too many bones to count. Teeth.
Yummy foods I make: Creative salads.
Zodiac sign: Capricorn. Fits like a charm.
