  • post and run for me, ladies, but I wanted to play! =)
    I hail from Chicago--grew up in the burbs but have lived in the city since 2001.
    My hobbies--I love art in all forms, but am best at drawing. I like watercolor, but hate oils--I suck at it and it takes too damn long. I also love dance in all forms and have taken everything from Flamenco to Burlesque (which is my current hobbie/passion).

    3 random facts:
    I have both a nursing degree and a graphic design degree, and I do both.
    I now have become allergic to certain dairy proteins because of work. I became allergic to the powdered protein we put in breast milk for preemies, and now I can't have whey essentially. It's not heavily present in certain cheeses so I can eat those but not regular milk, ice cream or yogurt. Or doritos. *le sigh*
    I have ridiculously huge breasts that I used to hate (and sometimes still do, like when I have to bra or bathing suit shop) but for the most part am happy with. =)

    Where do you hail from? I'm from Utah but I move around a lot   What are your hobbies? I cook and sew and knit   Tell us 3 random facts about you? I was always terrified of dogs until I met Fi's puppy Oreo, a few months later I got one of my own. I am worried Fi won't like our wedding, he doesn't like being the center of attention. I like reading post apocalyptic books and coming up with plans to get through whatever event caused that version of the apocalypse.

    In Response to Re: Who are you? : Do you know how allergic he is to penicillin? Like, hives-allergic, or anaphylaxis? Because if it's the later, he should carry this in his wallet, or wear a medic alert bracelet. If he was in an accident (hopefully not!) or ended up in the hospital/ dentist for some reason, that would be their starting point for treatment, as it is the most common broad-range antibiotic. ETA: Sorry, allergies make me paranoid from all my time in the pharmacy, I'm a little.. neurotic I guess about them!

    Honestly, he was just told that he was allergic to it but can't remember having a reaction to it. I think he must have reacted when he was too little to remember and just been told to stay away from them.

    I know nothing about allergies so the more you can teach me the better! Although I am starting to think my therapist is on to something with a gluten intolerance. I hate it when mom is right...
  • I hate being late to these things! Oh well, here goes nuthin...

    I grew up in Oklahoma and moved to Texas for college and haven't left, though I would like to move somewhere with cooler summers (and umm farther away from MIL) when I grow up :)

    Random facts:

    - I was born in the town where they film Real Houswives of New Jersey
    - I fake a really great british accent
    - I love Sharpies.

    I love british accents, I can in my HEAD but once I actually start talking I sound like an idiot. My husband has a really bad habit of starting to talk in a british accent if were around british people heh.

    I have Celiac, which is an intolerance to Gluten and grains. Its very easy to deal with I never liked bread or pasta.
     
    With the sun issue, I get steroid shots to control the reactions, which are pretty awful. my skin actually just started clearing up from the summer, its a relief not to have a rash after 3 months. I just have to avoid the sun from 11 am to 3 pm if the UVA rays are higher than 8 then I have to wait till 4 or 5 to go oout, but i work inside so its no big deal.
  • I'm not as bad as Celiac but I'm surprised how quickly my body has responded to being off gluten. My therapist had suggested getting off of it (due to fertility concerns) but I was all "yeah ok whatever". I have severely cut back for a month now and yeah, body definitely appreciates it.

    Jenna, I am a sharpie addict. I love them and collect them and they make me oh so happy...
  • Born and raised in southeast GA. My hobbies are pretty limited due to a crazy hectic school and work schedule, but I like to read, bake/cook, shop, and hang out with my family.
    Three random facts
    - I got KU my senior year of high school, graduated with honors on a Friday, started college the following Monday, have worked 2 jobs the majority of the time I've been in college and graduating with a 3.38 (as of now) GPA in May.
    - I have gotten in at least one wreck every year for the past 4 years (haven't had one yet this year * knock on wood).
    - I am a huge football fan.

    edited October 2010

    I live (born and raised) in PA, near Hershey where they make yummy Chocolate and have an amusement park that is priced higher then parks at Disney.

    My hobbies aren't much anymore. I am online a lot. I love computers and now I go to school again so one hobby is homework. I do enjoy playing card/board games mostly with my second family (best friend and her family). My sister and her family plays games but they don't play by the rules or even so made up is ok sometimes but the way they play the game they mostly play I don't agree with at all. So I opt out every time.

    3 random facts about me, narrowing it down is the hard thing.
     
    `I love having the ac on until mid Nov or first snow fall- Now I have to have the fan on but it was getting me sick so I have the window open at all times.

    `My left hand (pinky and ring finger) has been numb for almost 3 months and the doctor said it wasn't long enough to do anything. (this along with back and leg pain has been so annoying and more complicated then anything I ever had to deal with)

    -I am super picky with my drinks. I don't like wine or beer whatsoever. I hardly like anything I ever tried. I am down to about 3 drinks that I know off hand that I like. I never actually gotten drunk. Only sick 2 times one was because the drink I had was not made correctly at all. The other was the mixture of booze. Celebrating my best friends 21st before my birthday was even near, the waitress never carded us. <and that was the only illegal thing I have ever done (on purpose).

    4th fact- I'm not good at answering this random facts question.

  • I'm born and raised in KY, only moved an hour away from hometown.
    I'm a "grow where you're planted kind of gal."


    My hobbies are reading, playing DS (I'm secretly 10), and making these:


    AW----




    Three Facts:

    I'm left-handed for everything except throwing a football, and ambidextrous when bowling.

    I've never been on a motorcycle.  I'm very ashamed of this.

    BF is more than a decade older then me.  When he pisses me off, I give him a big ole kiss, and tell him I still want to grow old...after him.  It seems to be good revenge.

  • even later to the game

    Born and raised in Texas.

    Hobbies:  what are hobbies again? My life has been consumed with school for the past 4yrs.  I faintly remember the days of reading, athletics, outdoors fun, horses.

    3 random facts:

    I was born on my sister's 12th b-day (I was a planned c-section for the day after oops). 

    I am double jointed in my thumbs, so I have a hard time gripping almost anything.  I can actually bend my thumb backwards and touch my wrist (but I dont do it any more)

    I like public speaking.  but wont be doing anything close to that for the rest of my life. (paid at least)

  • Hi,

    I hail from the Great Commonwealth of Virginia, but I am a born and raised NYer.  I love cooking (especially for a crowd), I am a potter (as in plays with clay, not the books) and I have two children.  My random facts are: I learned to fly a Cessna before I had my drivers license, I went to the same HS as Young MC and a Supreme Court Justice, and my FI and I have a cup of tea every night before we go to bed. 
  • How do you drink scotch?  My FI's name is Scott and for some reason my dad seems to think that scotch is his favorite drink.... We have three bottles - all really good but just can't seem to get past the aroma....  And we feel guilty for not drinking any.... Can it be mixed?
