Getting to know you...

The following is one of those usually annoying get-to-you e-mails. For some reason, I decided I liked this one. Since the blog is new, I though I would post this, so any reader(s) can get to know me.

1. What time did you get up this morning? 7:09a Yes, I love that snooze bar.

2. Diamonds or Pearls? Any woman worth her salt would clearly choose diamonds. And so do I.

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? Unleashed. Love that bad-ass Jet Li.

4. What is your favorite TV show? Mythbusters (Discovery). If you don't watch this show, you should. At the end of every show, I feel smart and entertained. How many American TV shows can claim that?!?

5. What did you have for breakfast? Blueberry bagel with cream cheese provided free of charge from my lovely residency office. Food is always better when free.

6. What is your middle name? Elizabeth

7. What is your favorite cuisine? American fusion. Why? 'Cause I'm snobby like that.

8. What foods do you dislike? Chipotle. It tries to kill me. I'll elaborate in a future post.

9. What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Cookie dough!

10. What is your favorite CD at the moment? Ohh... good question. I think I like my new Nine Inch Nails CD and Moby's Hotel the most right now.

11. What kind of car do you drive? Subaru Impreza and/or 1985 VW Cabriolet, weather-dependent. Let's see - zippy 200+ horsepower stealth wagon or 4-cylinder convertable tuned such that it sounds like a lawnmower on crack. Such difficult decisions.

12. Favorite sandwich? the Brazilian steak sandwich, from a now-closed Boston restaurant, Geoffrey's. 2 years since I moved away,and I'm still trying unsuccessfully to duplicate the tasty combinationof steak, rye, avocado, and tomato that they made.

13. What characteristic do you despise? Passive-aggressive behavior, especially if it interferes with medical care. Selfishness is my other pet peeve, especially the form of selfishness that makes parents say things like, "oh, I couldn't make the appointment to have my child's freaking diseased and possibly deteriorating heart condition evaluated because it was too far to drive." Gah!

14. Favorite item of clothing? This old, stained, faded pink Polo button down shirt. Perfect for post-call comfiness. Also good for sliding around in my tube socks ala Tom Cruise.

15. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would yougo? Japan - I want to see Mt. Fuji.

16. What color is your bathroom? Oi, we haven't finished repainting.It's a lurid yellow.

17. What is your favorite brand of clothing? Bananna Republic. If I actually had money, Donna Karen. I've never owned any.

18. Where would you retire to? Killarney, southwestern Ireland. Why? Green + beer = perfection.

19. Favorite time of day? Dinner. Or happy hour if I manage to get a large group of friends around.

20. What was your most memorable birthday? This last one. I was in the PICU and some friends brought me a cake in the conference room. They pretty effectively suprised me and made for the only bright spot on an otherwise terrible day.

21. Where were you born? Missouri Baptist in St. Louis County, MO

22. Favorite sport to watch? Baseball. The best moments are while the Red Sox are beating the Yankees.

23. Who do you least expect to send this back to you? I don't expect anyone to answer.

24. Person you expect to send it back first? N/A, see above.

25. What fabric detergent do you use? Tide.

26. Coke or Pepsi? Diet Dr. Pepper. Fine - Diet Coke if I have must.

27. Are you a morning person or a night owl? Night - this helps when I'm on call in the hospital. It doesn't help the next morning, however.

28. What is your shoe size? 9.5 AA Try finding sexy spike heels to fit them feets! Mamma don't think so...

29. Do you have any pets? 2 cats, Puck (10 yrs old) and Oberon (4.5yrs); 15 African cichlids in a 55-gallon tank. And no, I don't plan on growing up to be a spinster.

30. What is one of your favorite things to do? Cook and eat with a large group of good friends.

35. What do you want to do now in life? Have a baby, see Mt. Fuji, tour the south of France, be a good doctor, keep my husband happy.

Welcome to the blogiverse!
Oh God that makes me a total geek.
I am addicted to Mythbusters too, and I think they are kind of sexy. Which makes me an even bigger geek.
Doctawife is a kick ass name by the way.....
