A-Z about Me

I saw this post over on Vanessa's blog and decided to add in my 2(6) cents!

A. Age: 29 (I think I have to finally concede late 20s at this point)
B. Bed size: Queen
C. Chore that you hate: Putting away the dishes once I've washed them. I'm famous for dishes mountain (except for the time a cutting board fell on someone's toe and then I was infamous)
D. Dogs: My pup Jesse is the best pooch in the whole world!
E. Essential start to your day: Coffee, puppy cuddles
F. Favorite color: blues--all blues
G. Gold or Silver: white gold or silver
H. Height: 5′ 7
I. Instruments you play: We had to learn to play the recorder as well as the ukelele in elementary school. I can probably also pick out Happy Birthday on the piano. But really I like singing the best.
J. Job title: I guess student (feels weird), as well as blogger/crafty business owner 
K. Kids: I'd like some of those eventually
L. Live: Guelph ON, Canada
M. Mother’s name: Valerie
N. Nicknames: Gillybean, Gilly, Gillybean tron, Gillbot (apparently Gillian is easily made into nicknames)
O. Overnight hospital stays: A lot when I was a kid for asthma related/mystery illnesses.I remember being in an oxygen tent, eating terrible oatmeal and being very upset when I woke up and found that my dad was gone and had taken my clothes, after he told me I wouldn't have to stay overnight.
P. Pet peeves: I think I covered most of them in this post, but also people who have meetings two feet behind my desk, open plan offices, loud talkers and lazy people
Q. Quote from a movie: All I can think of at the moment is quotes from the Princess Bride --the usual "As you wish" and "Inconceivable!" pop to mind 
R. Right or left handed: Right handed
S. Siblings: Little sister, Sarah
T. Time you wake up: 8:30 usually, or equivalent to 40 minutes after my alarm has started to go off. Will need to be earlier in future
U. Underwear: Yes, this is needed, especially when out in public
V. Vegetable you hate: nothing that comes to mind, although I've never tried things like brussel sprouts because my mom hates them
W. What makes you run late: I forgot to make lunch and coffee is taking too long to brew, and really, I just slept in too late..any number of reasons really!
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Dental x-rays, spine/full body for chiro, feet a few time to see if things were broken (once a bone was cracked in my foot)
Y. Yummy food that you make: Manicotti, lasagna, pizza, black bean soup
Z. Zoo animal: Pandas! so cute!
