Happy St. Patty's Day!!!!

Well....I didn't get up to run this morning. Usually, my run days are Tues/Wed/Thur....Monday and Friday are non running (strength training) days....and Wednesday is sometimes a double header...with weights in the am, and running at night.

Anyway....I hit the snooze over 2 million times this morning.

I was super comfy.

I know the hot summer weather will fix this bad habit of sleeping in. If I don't run in the am, I'll melt after work....and that's all their is to it.

Until then, I get to hit the snooze, annoy the hubby, and sit here at work all day regretting not running that am. :-)

Because I don't have a run to write about....or anything of any real importance on my mind.....I'm going to participate in this little meme thing that was going around pretty heavily about a month ago.

A~Age: 35, physically

B~ Bed Size: Full. We have a pretty sweet bedroom set that's been in the family for quite some time. The only's only a full size. A king would be nice...but a queen would be plenty. One of these days, we'll eventually break down and get a new set.

C~Chore you hate: Cleaning the bathroom. I hate that as I'm wiping down the sink, toilet, etc.....the cloth that I'm using always leaves behind these little bits of dust, dog hair, etc. No matter what type of cloth I choose, I always have to wipe the same area down 17 million times before it's all gone. Our house is older, so our bathroom is small. Tiny. Minuscule , actually. So it's very humid after both of us get through taking a shower. So all it takes it the lab to run in and out of the bathroom once, and dog hair is stuck to everything. (I love my dog, I love my dog, I love my dog.) :-)

D~Dogs: Two right now. We used to breed Scottish Terriers, but stopped years ago. We have one male, Isaac left. And we added a black lab puppy, Sam, last year.

E~Essential Start your Day Item: Snooze. If I have to get up without being able to hit it at least once, I'm ruined.

F~Favorite Color: I'm pretty equal opportunity when it comes to color. Red and yellow and green and brown and scarlet and black and ocher and peach and ruby and olive and violet and fawn....

G~Gold or Silver: Silver, hands down. Although, I'd never turn down gold. Nope, never!

H~Height: 5'8" (ish)

I~Instruments you play: Clarinet was my principle instrument. The Eb Soprano clarinet to be specific. In high school, all the band directors would call me Epher (eeefer). I wanted to put that on the license plate of my car...but the Iowa DMV said it sounded too much like reefer, and wouldn't let me.

J~Job Title: My business card has said Project Coordinator for the past 8 years. I've also been a jeweler, a grocery store manager, a dance instructor, a car detailer, a pharmacist assistant, a meat cutter...add in a degree in accounting, and I'm a job mutt. One of these days I'll decide what I want to be when I grow up. :-) Right now it's a toss up between photographer and psychologist/psychiatrist.

K~Kids: We're too busy being kids to have some of our own. :-)

L~Live: Right now, Omaha. Until 4 years ago I lived in Iowa.

M~Mom’s Name: Sharon

N~Nicknames: Nej. Oh, and in high school a classmate, Matt Cunard, used to call me Jennifredifer.

O~Overnight Hospital Stays: Nope, none for me. (knocking on wood)

P~Pet Peeve: Folding bath towels in half the short way (first) instead of the long way. (giggle)

Q~Quote from a Movie: "If you go into the jungle, make a statement. If you're going to fight...clash!"

R~Right or Left Handed: Right. But I shoot my shotgun and rifle left handed. Oh, and every time I would dislocate my shoulder (until I finally had surgery - 18 years later) I would become a leftie for a month or so at a time. :-)

S~Siblings: Cindy is my younger sister. I call her "Inny." When she was young, and not feeling fell, I would read her a Berenstain Bear book, and put a cold washcloth on her head. (We were prone to migraines.) Anyway, she would call to me from her room "Enny!!!!" (apparently migraines affected her ability to use the letter J - giggle) So, from that day on, I call her "Inny."

T~Time you wake up: 4:45 (ish) if I'm running or going to the gym....6:18 if I'm skipping both and have to go to work. :-)

U~Underwear: Boring. No butt floss. No string bikinis. No lace. Comfort is the key word here.

V~Vegetable you Dislike: Pretty much all of them. Canned green beans and cooked carrots are OK.

W~What Makes You Late: "I have nothing to wear" situations. Oh yeah, you heard me. I can be one h*ll of a tomboy most of the time....but there are days nothing in my closet looks even remotely comfortable or stylish.

X~X-rays You’ve had Done: Oh gosh. Let's see. Shoulder (numerous times)....both lower legs.....knee.....right foot.....right wrist. I think that's it though.

Y~Yummy Food you Make: Yummy food that I make? (giggle) I married someone that can cook because I don't enjoy doing it. But, I can make a rockin' Thanksgiving dinner, and a divine key lime cheesecake.

Z~Zoo Animal Favorite: That's a tough one. I worked at the Omaha zoo for 4 years....and all of the peacocks would roost outside of my office I'm kinda partial to them. But, the penguins are awesome. They're like a dog, they want petted...when they stand near you, then lean INTO you....they follow you around.

So there you have it. An overload of Nej information at your disposal.

(All stalkers planning to use this information against me must fill out form 3517S, in triplicate, and submit two weeks before said stalking is approved. Please don't forget to sign in blue ink, and leave 3 letters of reference. )

Thank you.

I like the shotgun thing and your honesty about not liking vegetables. There is a peacock farm about 1/2 mile away from the house. One escaped and lives on our street. He's a street favorite except when he hollers. The kids in the neighborhood named him George.

Nej said...

@ Mike - I've always said I'd end up with a peacock or two when I bought my retirement property out of the city. :-)

Fran said...

Nice to read Nej!

And put that alarm clock out of reach so you will have to get up to set it off :)

Fran said...

Oh and my sister has a Scottisch terrier.

Nej said...

@ Fran - We had two females (a black and a brindle) and a male (a wheaten). Love them to death. Small dogs, big dog attitude...but stubborn as all heck! :-)
