My beautiful engagement ring and wedding band came back from the jeweler's today, and now my rings look brand spankin' new again, scuff free and shiny and sparkly. I feel much more complete now that my finger isn't adorned with a "pretender," which, for all its uniqueness, my Claddagh ring really was.
Okay, so to the meme that was inspired by MOFG's blog.
A- Available or Single? Um, neither. Off the market & married.
B- Best Friend? Hubbs.
C- Cake or Pie? Cake...moist, delicious, rich, freshly-baked cake.
D- Drink of Choice? Anything fruity, sweet, and non-alcoholic, unless of course it is a Lava Flow. Nobody makes Lava Flows like the good people of Hawaii, unfortunately.
E- Essential Item(s)? Everything I own is essential. We try to rid our home of useless junk every so often.
F- Favourite Colour? Blue.
G- Gummi bears or worms? Worms. I like that they are bigger/longer, so there's more to eat!
H- Hometown? GP, although nowadays I try to tell people it's E-town. One day I will tell them it's Vancouver ;)
I- Indulgence? L'ancome, lululemon, hour-long massages
J- January or February? Feb. It's my b-day month and V-day falls in that month too, so it's a guaranteed presents sort of month. Plus, there are no holidays in January except for New Year's, which is almost always overrrated.
K- Kids? Hubbs.
L- Life is incomplete without... hope, love, and a safe place to rest your head.
M- Marriage Date? July 9, 2005.
N- Number of Sibs? 3.
O- Oranges or apples? Whichever is sweeter. I do not discriminate between fruit, so long as it is sweet juicy fruit.
P- Phobias/Fears? Clowns. Faerie ring mushrooms. Weird bumpy-textured surfaces. Lice & gross skin rashes. Hair loss. Hair growth (I've seen women with moustaches/beards, I kid you not). Bugs.
Q- Favourite Quote? I don't have one. A funny one that's been on my brain has been, "Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight!" :)
R- Reasons to Smile? A good joke. Someone else's smile. Being surprised by something you didn't expect. A good find at a sale. Everything. Nothing at all.
S- Season? Fall/autumn, hands down.
T- Tag Three? Wobbly Bits, Janeylynne, and Natalie. I think only Natalie will respond, though I hold out hope that the other two ladies will return to the blogosphere soon! :)
U- Unknown Fact About Me? I have a very sensitive olfactory sense. I smell things that nobody else can smell, and I am quite sensitive to certain scents (e.g. garlic B.O., certain obnoxious men's colognes, a pan heating on the stove, the air after a good rain). Sometimes these smells trigger emotions that are beyond my conscious understanding, and so I can get quite emo over a smell. Other times, the odor is so strong to me (when perhaps not so much to others) that I physically react to them by developing a migraine headache or getting nauseous.
V- Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animals? Biased question. No comment.
W- Worst habit(s)? Biting my nails & over-tweezing my eyebrows.
X- Xrays or Ultrasounds? Never had an ultrasound but the x-ray wasn't scary at all, so I'll say x-ray.
Y- Your Favourite Foods? It would be easier to ask what foods I dislike (alfalfa sprouts, cilantro, celery, pickles, beets, pomegranates, raspberries, veal, liver, peppers, blue cheese, and other gross things).
Z- Zodiac? Pisces.
Hrm. That was definitely not the most fun meme I ever did. I need to find better ones to bore you with! =P
