ABC (of me) Tag

I’ve seen this tag on a few blogs now, and thought it might be fun to do.  I’m not sure if anyone will find this remotely interesting, but here we are.  Oh, and the photo above is a picture of my pet sheep Lamington, balancing on his hind legs in order to eat the leaves from the orange tree. There are no lengths to which he will not go for food.

A. Age: 34
B. Bed size. King.  When you work hard, your bed should be as luxurious as possible.
C. Chore you hate: Ironing.  Most of my clothes end up at the dry cleaner’s for this reason.
D. Day: Saturday.
E. Essential start to your day: Coffee.  Otherwise no deal.
F. Favourite colour: Red.
G. Gold or Silver: Both, but I do seem to wear silver a little more often.
H. Height: 170cms
I. Instruments: Clarinet and a little bad piano.
J. Job title: PhD student.
K. Kids: Nup. Wait, does Lamington count?
L. Live: Rural WA.  No-one around here has heard of the area I live in, so you probably haven’t either.
M. Mum’s name: Jane.
N. Nicknames: Dempeaux (pronounced ‘Dempo’)
O. Overnight hospital stays: Kidney infection when I was ten which left me in hospital for three weeks. And wisdom teeth when I was much older. On the up side, I managed to get lots of reading in on both occassions.
P. Pet peeve: People not wearing shoes.
Q. Quote from a movie: “This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine.” – Full Metal Jacket. I guess you have to be a PhD student to understand.
R. Right or left handed: Right.
S. Siblings: One younger sister.
T. Time you wake up: 6am
U. Underwear: Bonds or Calvin Klein.
V. Vegetables you dislike: Pumpkin. Unless it’s in soup.
W. What makes you run late: A last minute wardrobe change because of the weather, the occassion, or a whim.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: A few at the dentist, but nothing dramatic.
Y. Yummy food you make: Ha! I’m more of a ‘heat and serve’ girl, but I’ve become pretty adept at making salads.
Z. Zoo: I always feel sorry for the animals.

    People not wearing shoes – *shudder*. I can’t stand seeing people walk around barefoot. I never go without something on my feet – not even when I’m inside my own house.

  2. Dempeaux says:

    @Dee Me too! It seems to be some kind of fashion statement where I live :S

  4. Dempeaux says:

    @Jess Haha! I’ll pass on your regards ;)

    OMFG I laughed SO hard that that pic of Lamington on his hind legs!! ADORABLE!

    I can see what you mean when you said ‘sheep are a good icebreaker’ :)

    You’re tall! We’ll look ridiculous standing next to each other at IMATS

  6. GlossQueen says:

    As soon as I saw that photo I knew it would be Lamington, he’s so mischevious.

  7. Suzanne says:

    oh, we got lots of barefooters at my library :/ which creeps me out because there’s broken glass ALL around the building. some people just aint smart.

    I sidestep ironing by having NO CLOTHES THAT ARE IRONABLE. my laziness impresses me.

  8. Dempeaux says:

    @Jen Haha! He’s had lots of practice. You’ll notice that there aren’t many leaves left on that tree. Incidentally, Lamington’s about as tall as me when he stands on his hind legs! :)

  9. Dempeaux says:

    @GlossQueen You know it! :)

  10. Dempeaux says:

    @Suzanne Ewwww! I can’t stand bare feet. I’m a huge fan of your no ironing policy too! :)
