The ABC's of Bari

I saw this post from my friend Jen this week and totally decided to steal it.  (Love you, Jen!)

Age: 40
Bed size: Queen.
Chore you hate: folding the whites or scooping the cat box, it's a tie.
Dogs: I had a Cocker Spaniel named Candy and a Lhasa Apso named Tai Chi when I was a kid.  No dogs now.  I am much more a cat person and the favorite person to my cat, Squirt.
Essential start of your day: a shower.
Favorite color: Orange.
Gold or silver: Silver
Height: 5’3″ on my driver's license, but I think I'm closer to 5'2" now.
Instruments I play (or have played): I played the flute in middle and high schools and can still play but not as well. I can also play the piano a little bit and have played handbells at church.  I can ring 2 bells in each hand.  I actually went to a "clinic" to learn how to 2-in-hand ring.
Job title: Speech-Language Pathologist
Kids: I have twins, a boy and a girl, who are 13. Send booze (for me, not the kids!)
Live: Southwestern Lower Michigan
Mom’s name: Kay
Nickname: I don't really have one.  Hubs calls me "Momma".
Overnight hospital stays: tonsils, baby
Pet peeve: I, too, have MANY pet peeves.  One of my biggest is when people drive around with the rear wiper condom left on their rear wiper after going thru a car wash.  Seriously, people - remove the condom - you look like an idiot.
Quote from a movie: "Do or do not, there is no try" - Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back.  Or "I wasn't even supposed to BE here today!" - Dante from Clerks.
Right or left handed: Right
Siblings: I have a sister, Buffi, who is 3 years younger than me.
Time you wake up: The alarm goes off around 6:45, but I've usually been awake on and off for a couple hours. 
Underwear: Of course :)  Although I've been toying with the idea of going commando when running.  Haven't been able to do it yet though.
Vegetable you dislike: I'm not fond of radishes, but I haven't really found a veggie I really dislike.  Onions hate me, however, and I curse the world whenever I eat them.
What makes you run late: The internet.  I spend too much time checking twitter, facebook, emails, the GAH I'm late.
X-rays you have had done: ankle, c-spine, full body for chiropractor (he was kind of a quack and I only go to him now if REALLY desperate).  I've also had a CT scan because I rolled my car and had a mild brain injury (same reason I had the c-spine x-rays).
Yummy food you make: I think I make MANY yummy foods.  Biggest request is for creme brulee.
Zoo animal: I love the prairie dogs.  I also love ocean animals, so I'm more likely to go to an aquarium than a zoo.

There you have it!  Please feel free to steal this and then post the link to your answers in the comments below.  I'd love to learn the abc's of you!
