Alphabet Survey

Happy Saturday, all!  How’s your day going?  Since it looks like Hurricane Sandy will hit the New York City area within the next few days, I’m stocking up on emergency supplies.


Today’s first order of business is buying a flashlight with lots of extra batteries.  Anyway, both Alex and Meghan posted this survey, so I’m following suit and doing the same.  Who doesn’t love a good survey, right?

A is for age:

I’m 22 years old, which means I’m, like, an adult.  Scary.

B is for breakfast today:

I’m craving eggs and almond butter, so it’s anyone’s guess at this point.

C is for currently craving: 

As you can tell from my previous answer, my cravings have been out in left field.  Last night, I found myself craving a hamburger and French fries; who am I?  Ha!

D is for dinner tonight:

Right now, I have no idea.  I can’t think about dinner until lunchtime.  That’s normal, right?

E is for favorite type of exercise: 

Swimming, biking, running, strength training, practicing yoga—any and all of the above, please!  Running is my favorite, though.

F is for an irrational fear:

Nothing out of the ordinary here, just snakes, spiders, etc.

G is for gross food:

Olives and onions.  Keep ‘em away!

H is for hometown:

Small-town alert:  Cazenovia, NY, which is about 30 minutes southeast of Syracuse. (Go Orange!)

I is for something important:

I’m pulling a friends and family combo.

J is for current favorite jam:

“Tea, a drink with jam and bread” or “this is beat is my jam”?  Since I don’t use jam, I’m going with the music variety.  Right now, I have Maroon 5’s “One More Night” on repeat. (Funny enough, I had in stuck in my head during the DeRuyter Lake Triathlon, but I changed the words to “One More Tri.”  I like to think it helped me hammer on the bike.)

K is for kids:

Someday.  That day is not today.  Or tomorrow.  Or any day within the next five to eight years.  Ha!

L is for current location:

New York City!

M is for the most recent way you spent money:

I went to Whole Foods last night to buy carrots, almond butter, and onion powder.  Exciting stuff, right?

N is for something you need:

Besides a full-time big-girl job, I would absolutely love some quality time with my college BFFs.  I miss everyone so much!

O is for occupation:

Um … let’s say blogger and freelance writer.

P is for pet peeve:

Giving less than 100 percent.  If you’re going to do something, then you might as well do it right and give it your all.  Pre (Steve Prefontaine) said it best.


Q is for a quotation:

Besides that Pre quotation, I love this one from Dr. Seuss.


R is for random fact about you:

I consider Sanibel, FL my home away from home.

My grandparents have a condo there, so I’ve been going since day one.

S is for favorite healthy snack:

This week, I’ve been noshing on Chobani and carrot sticks.  Weird combo, but it works.

T is for favorite treat:

Anything chocolate, although I’m still dreaming about that red velvet cupcake from Brooklyn Cupcake.

U is for something that makes you unique:

I’m a tad obsessed with grammar, and I find these pins incredibly funny and witty.

V is for favorite vegetable:

Raw carrots and red peppers; steamed asparagus; roasted broccoli and mushrooms.

W is for today’s workout:

It’s been 11 days since my last rest day (whoops!), so I’m recovering today.  Although I really, really want to run.

X is for X-rays you’ve had:

Oh boy.  I’ve had a ton on my ankles, plus I’ve had a few MRIs on my right knee when I tore my ACL and meniscus.  

Y is for yesterday’s highlight:

Definitely my biking breakthrough.

Z is for your time zone:

Eastern Standard, baby.

Your turn:  Pick a letter or two and share your responses.  Or repost the entire survey!

  1. I’m a big Maroon 5 fan as well! And I’m also a little obsessed with grammar (although I don’t want to put myself out there too much, I’m sure I’ve made some mistakes in my blog!). Have you seen the pin that says “Grammar Matters” and it shows the difference between a Google search that starts with “how do u” and one that starts with “how does one”? Hilarious results!

  2. Aha! Now I know where you get your taste for blackened tofu, etc. Had a blackened grouper sandwich at the Lazy Flamingo lately? The best!

    Lived on Sanibel a while after NYC and before Santa Fe. Great memories of the above.

    • Brad, I LOVE the Lazy Flamingo! I’ve had the blackened grouper sandwich more times than I can count, and the peel and eat shrimp is my absolute favorite. (Clearly, I’m obsessed with Sanibel and seafood. ;))

      I have family in Santa Fe, and we visited them about three years ago. It was my first time “out west,” and I had a great time. Can’t wait to go back!

  3. Cute survey! You’re so young, I feel like a grandma! I’m like 10 years older than you! and Sanibel is way close to me…kind of 😉

  4. I love reading this about you, always like learning about some fellow bloggers. I adore the first photo of you! so beautiful.

  5. I love learning more about you, Carrie! Be careful-the weather does not sound good in your part of the world!
