The ABCs

  It's 7 days until Match Day!!  I've been busy doing 2 kinds of work; 1) working in the ER, and 2) working on my fitness.  I'm pretty proud of myself even though I drank too many beer calories last night.  Haha.  I've seen these ABC things on a bunch of other blogs and really like them, so I though I'd give them a shot.

A. Age: 25
B. Bed size: King all the way.  Andy and I really like our own space....we're not big cuddlers when it comes to sleepy time.
C. Chore you dislike: Taking out the trash.  Hate doing it!
D. Dogs: Bunsen, my beautiful Silky Terrier, a rescue puppy.
E. Essential start to your day: Coffee.  I need coffee both for its caffeine but also because I think there's nothing better than a warm cup of coffee with cream to start the day.
F. Favorite color:  I like pink the most, but love wearing most colors. 
G. Gold or silver:  Silver
H. Height:  5'2...vertically challenged.
I. Instruments you play(ed):  I started playing the piano when I was 8 and took lessons up until I was 16.  I also played flute, piccolo and sousaphone in the band.  A wide and weird variety.
J. Job title: Medical student transitioning into emergency medicine resident in July!
K. Kids:   Just Bunsen, and that's the way I like it.
L. Live: In Huntington, WV but I'll be finding out my new location next Thursday!
M. Mom’s name:  Sue Ann
N. Nicknames:  Nicknames aren't really my thing but I'm occasionally called by a nickname, usually by Andy.
O. Overnight hospital stays:  All the time when I'm on call, but never as a patient.
P. Pet peeves:  Hypocrites, misspellings, baby names that are spelled strangely or are just plain weird, and laziness.
Q. Quote from a movie:  "Oh Evan!  Thank you for bringing this bottle of spermicidal lube for my p***y!"-----SuperBad
R. Righty or lefty:  Right handed.
S. Siblings:  Megan
T. Time you wake up:  Completely variable depending on my work schedule....oh the life of a med student.
U. Underwear: "That thong, th-thong thong thong."
V. Vegetables you dont’ like: I honestly can't thing of a vegetable that I don't like.  There are some that I like more than others, but I don't really hate any veggies.
W. What makes you run late:  Sorry my dear, but Andy makes me late. I'm a stickler for being punctual but he is usually running behind.
X. X-rays you’ve had:  Chest X-ray, knee and foot.  (I've also had a few head CTs.)
Y. Yummy food you make:  I cook a lot, so I like to think that I make multiple tasty dishes. I can't pick a favorite, but one thing I made last nice was a black bean hummus for friends, and it was a hit.
Z. Zoo animal favorites:  Monkeys??  I haven't been in a zoo in years, and don't really care to go back.

  Last night was a lot of fun.  In honor of our upcoming Match Day, we decided to paint beer steins at The Pottery Place. Surprisingly, multiple people including guys and girls showed up to paint.  Andy being the amazing person that he is, made a kick ass beer stein with his family crest.  It basically put all of the other beer steins to shame.  Mine has Match Day on one side, 2011 on the handle, and an orangey red Irish moustache on the other side.


  1. That quote from Superbad cracks me up! And I love his flapping hand motions when he says it lol.

  2. And here I thought I was the only baby-name spaz...seriously, sometimes Tim won't let me read the birth announcements because I get so find people and slap them mad ; )
