There have been lots of ABCs on my favorite food & fitness blogs over the past few weeks, so I figured I’d hop on the train without giving away too much super secret information about myself.
But before that, I have a quick food update. Last night I tested the free jar of Spicy Peanut Butter from the Nutropolitan exhibit this weekend. It was exactly as described: PB with a serious kick of fire. It tastes like those spicy nut mixes you can get at the airport smoothed into a butter. I’m not sure what I would put it on, so I just tried it with my finger. Texture was good, but way to hot for me!
ABCs of the Clarissa D
A. Age: 25 and a half.
B. Bed size: Full. It was the biggest bed that would fit in my old shoebox apartment and Leo hates it because his feet hang off the edge. Since I am relatively bite-size I fit perfectly 🙂
C. Chore(s) you hate: Cleaning the bathroom and making my bed. I don’t understand why, as an adult, I still have to make my bed. It’s MY bed! [note: doing chores in recovery helps you to gain a sense of responsibility and purpose, so if your sponsor tells you to do your chores…do them!]
D. Dogs: Kitties are my favorite of course, how can you not love them? This is a picture of my baby girl, Crazy, as a 6 week old precious:
But if I ever got a dog it would be a papillon– I met one on New Year’s Eve 2009 and have been obsessed ever since.
Isn’t it cute? I think Papillon means butterfly in French.
E. Essential start to your day: NeilMed Sinus Rinse in the shower…I’ve been getting horrible sinus headaches this year and it’s the only thing that helps!
F. Favorite color: Um…no. Ok, pink.
G. Gold or silver: PLATINUM!
H. Height: 5’2” or 5’3” – I’m honestly not sure.
I. Instruments you play: Guitar Hero. Seriously though… I unsuccessfully played a variety instruments before high school and then focused only on my voice – the only thing that has ever sounded decent!
J. Job title: Associate, Super Cool Anonymous $$$ Firm.
K. Kids: Someday I hope to produce them…I love my nephews and soon-to-be-born niece!
L. Live: Yup, still living (Tracey – I had to copy your response!). I live in NYC though, in case that’s unclear.
M. Mom’s name: Hmm…real name or pseudonym? Let’s go with Lolly and I’ll let you decide.
N. Nicknames: These would all be related to my real name which is a no-no. Although sometimes Leo says this to me – don’t worry – it’s out of love and my face doesn’t actually smell!
O. Overnight hospital stays: After all of my escapades…surprisingly never and let’s keep it that way.
P. Pet peeve: When people walk on the WRONG (left) side of the sidewalk. We live in America people – walk on the right side.
Q. Quote from a movie: My latest favorite:
“You look like a pumpkin, b*tch!” ~ Natalie Portman in No Strings Attached. Erica T. has been kind enough to post the clip here! The quote happens approximately at time 2:40 or 2:58, but watch the whole trailer because it’s funny.
R. Right or left handed: Righty-tighty
S. Siblings: One way older brother, one way older sister and their respective spouses. That’s right – I’m the accident baby of the family.
T. Time you wake up: 7:55am! Ok, 8:15am. At work before 9:00am though – sweet!
U. Underwear: Yes, but not the kind with elastic that digs into my cheeks.
V. Vegetables you dislike: Um…any veggie that is cooked including carrots, squash, peas, green beans, asparagus, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, eggplant and the list continues. [note: stirfry veggies are OK for the most part] In general – bring on the raw veggies, please (minus beets). Plus did you know raw veggies have more nutrients and vitamins than cooked ones?
W. What makes you run late: Nothing, except maybe an alarm clock failure? I am an early or on-time girl and have been my entire life.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Knees, ankles, teeth, jaw, chest, eyeballs (ok, it was a retinal scan but it looked awfully similar to an X-ray…)
Y. Yummy food you make: my mama’s spaghetti sauce, sloppy joe pizza, baked mac n’ cheese, chicken parm, nachos, buffalo chicken dip, pesto on anything, etc. All unhealthy yet delicious choices! I need to learn to cook things that won’t clog arteries.
Z. Zoo- favorite animal: OTTERS! Or monkeys or penguins – they are just so cute.
PS. If you aren’t doing anything fun today, please spend time perusing www.dooce.com and I guarantee that you will laugh out loud/possibly pee your pants.
What are your answers to some of these questions??
