Me From A to Z

I saw this idea at Love. Laughter. Happily Ever After. and I wanted to do it, too. I've been trying to get more into blogging and the blogging community and I've had some new followers, so I thought this would be a way for my readers to get to know me a little bit more.

A: Available or Married?
Married. Since 08-27-11.

B: Book?
One of my favorites would have to be "100 Years of Solitude" by Gabriel García Márquez. Currently I'm reading "Tropic of Cancer" by Henry Miller.

C: Cake or Pie?
Hm, that's tough because it depends what kind. I love Kahlua Cream pie and pumpkin pie. I love a good cake, too. But I guess if I had to just choose one, it'd be cake. Ice cream cake... mmmmmmm......

D: Drink of Choice?
Thai iced tea.

E: Essential Item?
My contacts and/or glasses. I am blind as a bat without those!

F: Favorite Color?
Purple! Can't you tell by this blog?? =)

G: Game to Play or Watch?
To play! Especially if it's volleyball, softball, American football (yes, I love playing football!), or even board games. I can get a little competitive.

H: Hometown?
Oxnard, California! Love it & miss it dearly. I know no one's ever heard of Oxnard, so when people ask me where I'm from, I either say "an hour north of L.A." or "between Santa Barbara and L.A." or just "Ventura County."

I: Indulgence?
Traveling!

J: Job Title?
Well right now, I'm technically jobless. I guess you can say I've been on holiday-- for the last 8 months, lol. But I am a qualified ESL teacher (English as a Second Language) and I'm also a Registered Dental Assistant. What a combo, right?

K: Kids and Names?
Nope, not yet.

L: Life is Incomplete Without?
<-----This dude.

M: Music?
I like a lot of different types, from {good} hiphop, r&b, rock, indie, reggae to even some Spanish rock. Some of my favorites include Erykah Badu, Incubus, Big Boi, Feist, J. Cole, Julieta Venegas, Mayer Hawthorne, Chiddy Bang, Phoenix, Wale.... oh boy, I could go on and on and on....

N: Number of Siblings? 
One brother-- who I miss a lot!

O: Oranges or Apples?
Apples.

P: Phobias/Fears?
No serious ones.

Q: Quote?
"People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it."

R: Reason To Smile?
Life-- all the people, experiences & opportunities I've been blessed with.

S: Season?
Winter! I love the feeling of the whole Christmas holiday feeling (plus, my birthday is close to Christmas, too!). And I enjoy winter because in Southern California we don't get any harsh weather like snow! Totally spoiled.

T: Tattoos?
Nope.

U: Unknown Fact About Me?
I boycott going to any circus years ago because of how the majority of them treat their animals.

V: Vegetable You Love?
Love?? That's kind of a strong word. I'm not much of a veggie person. But I do like cucumber. And corn.

W: Worst Habits?
Wasting too much time online.

X: X-Rays?
Only at the dentist!

Y: Yummy Food?
Oh goodness- just like with music, I could go on and on! My top 3 favorite cuisines are Thai, Filipino & Mexican (and then within those, I have a million favorite dishes I love-- but I'll spare you guys the time!). And can't forget sushi & my momma's cooking! Oh, and if you haven't tried Filipino food-- DO IT.

Z: Zoo Favorites?
Elephants.

Hope you enjoyed reading a little bit about me. This is just a small snippet. I'm sure there will be more to come for you guys to get to know me better!

Have a great weekend!
