Yuck.  I woke up feeling slightly under the weather this morning.  And since my running isn’t going over-the-moon amazing, and I’d rather not have a whole post to “gosh I’m not running as fast as I’d like…I’m stressed…blah blah BLAH” I figured I’d keep the mood light and do the ABC post only a few weeks late rather than the month or so that I tend to be behind on these things.

Don’t worry though, I’m sure I’ll be be back tomorrow or something to complain about my workouts 😉

Age: 24.

Bed size: Twin.  Annoying? Yes but it was free.  I can’t complain.

Chore you hate: Cooking.  For real. I mean, I’ll do it but I hate it with the heat of 1,000 suns

Dogs: Nope.  And I’m unlikely to get one ever.  I don’t have a problem with them but, maybe it’s the age / stage of life I’m in, I don’t want to have to take care of anyone/thing!

Essential start of your day: Lots of things.  But I’ve found that if I don’t start my day with a run (and subsequently a shower) I fill icky for the rest of the day.

Fav colour: Pink

Gold or silver: It depends on what outfit I’m wearing it with.

Height: 5’11”. Or rather just under it.

Instruments I play: Ummmm recorder, piano, clarinet, singing.  Or at least I know how to play these in theory.

Job title: VISTA IT Research Coordinator.

Kids:  I used to say HECK NO.  But slowly they’re growing on me.  I do want to be a pediatrician after all.  And I hear my biological clock ticking loud and clear.  And I’m only 24!

Live:  Providence RI

Mom’s name: Patricia

Nicknames: KK (said kay-kay), Kare-bear.

Overnight hospital stays: Nope.  But last spring I had to go to the hospital every 8 hours for IV antibiotics, so I was there in the middle of the night

Pet peeve: Bad drivers. Aka drivers who drive 25 in a 50 zone, don’t use blinkers.  I know I’m a Masshole but still…bad drivers irk me. Or at least drivers who do not get out of my way…

Quote from a movie:  Suck my unit


thanks google images.

Right or left handed: Southpaw all the freaking way

Siblings: 4 sisters, 1 brother.  All younger.  And people wonder why I was so HECK NO to kids when I was younger.

Time you wake up: Depends on the day.  MWF = 5:15, T/R = 7:30 and the weekends I’ve gotten into the habit of not setting an alarm.  Since I don’t get much sleep during the week I tend to make up for it Sat/Sun.

Underwear: Sometimes yes, sometimes no.  It depends on my outfit / when the last time I did laundry was. TMI?

Veg you dislike: Peas.  Or asparagus.  There’s just something about a veggie that makes your pee smell funny that just turns me off.

What makes you run late:  Running actually.  Or I could blame the shower and food I like to have afterward.

X-rays you have had done:  Lots of fingers and ankles (hello basketball and volleyball!) *knockonwood* that it hasn’t been anything more serious.

Yummy food you make: Chocolate Chip and PB Chip oatmeal cookies.  YUM

Zoo, favorite animal: I haven’t gone to the zoo in years BUT my favorite part was the small building that had the sign saying “look inside to see a real bat” and when you peaked into the window you saw this

thanks google.


  1. I hope you feel better ❤

  2. Normally I don’t even bother reading the ABC posts but you intro’d with the NATO phonetic alphabet and then made a My Cousin Vinny reference, so I got sucked in! Yes, I am also in AmeriCorps!! Not a VISTA though. I work for a non-profit that does nature education; basically I take kids for hikes in the woods and then develop fun educational materials to go along with it.

  3. Yes I love the ABCs. Totally agree about bad drivers, ah! So many of them in my life today, I don’t know what was up. Hope the running improves!

  4. …and Bingo had a name-o, e, i, e, i, o. Yep, those were the letters I identified.

  5. my nickname is KK too…. I wonder if our first names are the same? It’s funny, everyone in my family writes it as “kk” except my mom, who wrote it as “ca-ca” for a while, which looks like a very different name.

    That is a mean trick by the zoo!

  6. I had a twin bed until I was 24, but at least I am smaller! Can’t imagine scrunching a 5’11” body into a tiny bed. But at least, you know, it doesn’t have bedbugs.

  7. haha, at least you’re honest re: the underwear question. Whenever I stay in my old bedroom in my hometown during visits, I’m always amazed at how small the bed feels! Free bed = worth it though, right?

  8. You haven’t said so explicitly, but there is more joy in your life?….and I am lucky to notice it?

    Suck my unit! HA! Forgot about that movie!

  9. Hope you are feeling better…My Cousin Vinny and Tropic Thunder in one post? Winning!

  10. Ick! Hope you aren’t coming down with the horrible hanger-oner bug that seems EVERYWHERE?! It’s not a good one.
    Love your list. Interesting… but you don’t like to cook?! Oh no. My fave!

  11. Five-eleven? Dayum, girl. You tall. 🙂

    Comment by shelby — March 7, 2011 @ 10:42

  12. Per Shelby above, “You tall.” 😀 I’m just under 5′ 8″, but somehow just under 5’11” seems a ton taller. Hope you get well soon!

  13. If your biological clock is ticking at 24 you need to slap it and tell it to shut up!

    Comment by Jess — March 7, 2011 @ 14:23

  14. I had to lol at your underwear answer! I must be a prude I don’t think I’d dare go out without any hehe

    Comment by laura @ box run eat — March 7, 2011 @ 16:31

  15. Love the last one! Hmmm…early clock ticking! But that’s from someone who waited until I was 34 to get prego the first time.

  16. I hope you feel better soon! 😦

  17. I slept in a twin bed until I got married (and two people in a twin bed = sleep wrestling match), but I’m only 5’4″. It’s nice to be able to stretch out.

    Comment by Chelsea — March 7, 2011 @ 20:19

  18. I hope you feel better soon friend. Its thats time of year with all those allergies, yuck!
    And I love the asparagus reference…so TRUE!

    Comment by lindsay — March 7, 2011 @ 21:13

  19. Fun Post!! 5′ 11″ I’m jealous…I thought I was 5′ 5.5″ and my dr. just told me I’m 5’4″ whaaaa? I hope you feel better! Your running game will be back, I have no doubts! xoxoxo

    Comment by megan @ muncher cruncher — March 8, 2011 @ 00:29

  20. I feel like you are too tall for a twin. Don’t worry I had a twin at first after college. It will be that much more amazing when you upgrade! 🙂

    Pretty sure your bio. clock isn’t ticking that loud… Haha. Family of 6 kids – that is intense. Usually big family kids want to have their own big families… Better start pep-talking your ovaries now! 😉 I kid I kid.

    Feel better! PS booked my BOS flight today and I know you are making special arrangements to hang out.

  21. I get your feelings on dogs…I don’t want to take care of anyone or anything either and yet I find myself with a very demanding husband and child. Go figure!

  22. […] Hint let’s just look at letter U shall we? […]
