Tania Elizabeth over at Varekai tagged me here, and I had to play along. Anyone else remember when the internet was new and email "surveys" were constantly passed around between friends? Or was that just me? Either way, nostalgia demands I participate.

A: Attached or Single: Firmly attached. My husband is the best.
B: Best Friend: Different friends for different things, and the levels of closeness wax and wane. I'd probably say my university roommate is my best friend though, excepting Bunny.
C: Cake or Pie: If they're just average, cake. Middling pie is always disappointing, but even average cake is delightful. Properly made pie, though, is a work of edible art.
D: Day of Choice: I'm a fan of Thursdays. The was enrichment "classes" (or, goof off in the library time) in elementary school/ In high school that was band and orchestra practice. My favourite classes were Thursday nights in university. And then I did get married on a Thursday.
E: Essential Item: My glasses. I'm useless without them. Anything else I can get by without, even though I might not like it.
F: Favorite Color: I'm indecisive. Different colours interest me at different times.
G: Gummy  Bears or Worms: Gummy cola bottles, actually. Although right now they make my teeth hurt.
H: Hometown: I was born in Toronto and lived there the first few years of life. It's where my soul sings. But I currently live where I grew up.
I: Favorite Indulgence: Hazelnut lattes. They're expensive and utterly delightful. I can't wait to get my espresso machine back in business when we move.
J: January or July: I'm not a fan of either, really. January in central Ontario is disgustingly cold and snowy, and July is awful and muggy.
K: Kids: I adore my nephew and am trying to give any other thought to children this month. But man is he cute.
L: Life Isn’t Complete Without: Death. I'm morbid, but that's what signals that your life is, literally, complete.
M: Marriage Date: August 23.
N: Number of Handbags: I have about half a dozen, two of which are really good ones. I'm hoping to pick up a nice tan or white one this year, actually.
O: Oranges or Apples: I'm not actually a fan of fruit. But apples can be delightful when I'm in  the mood, and make scrumptious desserts. I don't like the membranes of citrus.
P: Phobias: All of them? Not being able to breathe. Being trapped in anything (a turtleneck can make me cry, and I've been known to throw a panic attack over a too-small ring) and alternative spaces that are too large and empty.
Q: Quote: "Reach for the moon, even if you miss you will land among the stars" Les Brown
R: Reason to Smile: Puppy cuddles
S: Season of Choice: Autumn
T: Tag 5 People: If you'd like to play consider yourself tagged
U: Unknown Fact About Me: I'm not convinced that the physical world actually exists.
V: Vegetable: I'm a fan of cruciferous greens. Broccoli and Brussels sprouts.
W: Worst Habit: Little nervous habit? That would be nail biting. Other than that, I'm not sure though there are many things I do that are objectively worse, I'm just not sure what exactly would be my worst.
X: X-ray or Ultrasound: I'm radioactive.
Y: Your Favorite Food: See the letter V. Seriously.
Z: Zodiac Sign: Taurus.


  1. Learning to supreme citrus fruit was a game changer for me. I hate the membranes, but supreming basically takes that away, for a far superior (albeit messier) fruit experience.

    1. That's probably a skill I should learn. When I was a (very awkward) child I used to pull the membranes off and eat the actual fruit portions, and I love grapefruit halves for breakfast.
