me from A to Z

Copied from Lucy Pig-Puppet

Accent: not too much of one, although you could probably pinpoint me as a Northeasterner. Sometimes I sound Canadian for no reason.

Booze: Yeah.

Chore I Hate: Laundry, in particular washing things by hand (which I don't need to do any more, thanks to these!)

Dog or Cat: Cat. My housemates have two, General Tso and Myrtle. Myrtle pushes the General around.

Essential Electronics: computer, cell phone

Favorite Cologne(s): none, to the extent that my deodorant and moisturizer are fragrance-free

Gold or Silver: silver

Hometown: nice little Dobbs Ferry, NY, a suburb of NYC

Insomnia: More like prolonging of bedtime by sitting in front of my computer...

Job Title: grad student

Kids: someday, but not now

Living arrangements: Preferably in an apartment with the boyfriend; usually in a house with 5 housemates

Most admirable trait: when I want to I can be a great organizer, of concepts and/or people. that's kind of boring.

Number of sexual partners: not going there

Overnight hospital stays: None.

Phobias: I hate vegetation or groups of animals that seem like they might multiply until they take over the earth. Example: large patches of mushrooms on a lawn.

Quote: Dorky, but I just discovered this opening line from Freud: "In this introductory chapter there is nothing new to be said and it will not be possible to avoid repeating what has often been said before." I think I've found an epigraph for my (unwritten) dissertation.

Religion: None. "Culturally Jewish," whatever that means.

Siblings: a sister, 6 years younger

Time I wake up: Pretty late. I'll say around 9.

Unusual talent or skill: I sing pretty good.

Vegetable I refuse to eat: I like all veggies, but don't like some fruits: bananas really gross me out.

Worst habit: checking email compulsively when I'm working at my computer

X-rays: Teeth. Possibly some hip bone thing when I was a little baby and had to wear a brace that made me look like a frog for a few weeks (apt, no?).

Yummy foods I make: delicious black beans with stuff in them (onion, garlic, cilantro, chipotles, etc.), brownies

Zodiac sign: Sagittarius.

Wow, if checking email compulsively is your worst trait, then you must be pretty much alright!

Love the Freud quote.
