A-Z Meme

From Irina

Accent: Wow...long, long story. Basic version: mostly Chicago, but a brief childhood stint in New York, combined with really weird r's derived from a speech problem, leaves me with an accent that is misidentified as British, but is in fact entirely my own.

Booze: First of all, not legal yet in this country. Second of all, I really hate the taste of anything alcohalic. Every year, I have a huge internal debate whether to go with wine or grape juice for the Four Cups.

Chore I hate: Cleaning, mostly. I can stand cooking, and laundry is bearable when I can work up the energy, but not cleaning. That is, not cleaning up my own messiness. I don't mind working under someone else's direction, because then you can just space out and obey.

Dogs/cats: Neither. Once, I was really into animals and wished we could get a pet, but my father is allergic to fur. Then I realized that for all that trouble, you may as well have a kid.

Essential Electronics
: Computer, mostly...I'm slowly becoming addicted to the internet. My family didn't even have internet until last year, but now I'm totally hooked.

Favorite Perfume/Cologne: Don't wear it. But I really like the smell of Softsoap's milk-and-honey soap. Yum.

Gold and silver
: Definitely silver. Much more classy.

Hometown: Chicago

Insomnia: Rarely. Usually, it takes me around a half an hour to fall asleep, but once out I will not awaken until summoned by my internal clock.

Job Title: Student?

Kids: Nope. But really, really adorable nephews and niece.

Living Arrangements: Dorm room, all to myself.

Most Admired Trait: I don't get offended or angry at people. Ever. Mildly annoyed, perhaps, but I don't think that I've had somebody angry at me or vice versa for years and years. Unless they just don't tell me.

Number of Sexual Partners: ....*rolls her eyes*

Overnight Hospital Stays: None, I think. Thank G-d.

Phobia: Decisions. ; )

Quote:"Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life" -Terry Pratchett

Religion: Jewish

: Two older brothers, two older sisters, one younger brother.

Time I usually wake up: Well...normally around eight something, since I have class at 9:30, or a chavruta at 9:00 on Tuesdays. On Sundays, I sometimes sleep rather late, but never much after 10ish.

Unusual Talent
: I can find anagrams in words. Really fast. Right off the bat. Years of playing text-twist have honed it to an almost freakish level of talent.

Vegetable I refuse to eat: Most of them.

Worst Habit: Laziness.

: Just for dental/orthodontic purposes.

Yummy Foods I Make: Um....see, I'm a college kid....once, at home, I made a really awesome key lime pie. It was, like the crowning acheivement of my cooking life. And I can fry a mean shnitzel.

Zodiac Sign: Um...The one that corresponds to December 31? I think it's, like Capricorn. Hold on....ah, the joy of google. Capricorn it is. I am vaguely close to the personality that this site alleges. In some ways. But, puh-lease. I would have said that for any of them

I tag...anyone who reads this.


Richard said...

what does this mean, "tag anyone who reads this?"

Tobie said...

That they then have to (or may) do this meme on their blog. Normally, you tag someone in particular, but that's far too effort-ful.

Thanks for the tag this is a fun one.
I always drink grape juice by the Seder, I don't need alcohol to enjoy the evening.
Love your answer with the animals, they're expensive and dirty, why not take the Nachas instead:)
