A-Z Game

Celebratory essay-submission post! I also have next week off uni, so I may be able to get 1 or 2 days of fun times in before I succumb to the next onslaught of study. I will also be posting more images of the theatre-y design things I've been working on, so keep an eye out for those!
In the mean time, this A-Z of Me game has been circling around the blogosphere today, on Miss Indie and the Nearsighted Owl, so I thought I'd play along. Here goes...

A. Age: 21
B. Bed size: Single
C. Chore that you hate: Drying dishes. Honestly, if you just leave them there for long enough they dry themselves! 
D. Dogs: I adore my dog, Sarah, pictured above, helping me study. 
E. Essential start to your day: Washing my face. I cannot wake up unless I have washed my face.
F. Favorite color: What an impossible question. Although, I am a fan of various shades of blue. My bedroom is bright blue, and I also love teal and turquoise. But ask me again next week and that will probably have changed. 
G. Gold or Silver: Silver! I always wear my beautiful, tiny silver scissors necklace. 
H. Height: I actually don't know to be honest. But I haven't grown much since early high-school, so, not very tall.
I. Instruments you play: I play piano rather badly, and have entertained the idea of learning guitar. I'd also like to learn the ukelele. 
J. Job title: Long suffering student. 
K. Kids: I often have the maturity of a child, does that count?
L. Live: Lovely Melbourne, Australia
M. Mother’s name: Janet
N. Nicknames: Sadly, I don't have any, unless you count shortening Catherine to Cath. I remember being really annoyed in primary school that I didn't have a cool nickname.
O. Overnight hospital stays: None so far, hoping to keep it that way!
P. Pet peeves: Rude people, and people who can't see the fun in being a little silly sometimes. As well as slow drivers, and not having enough to time to do creative things.
Q. Quote from a movie: Summer: Octopus's Garden is the greatest Beatles song ever recorded! 
Tom: Why don't you just say Piggies?! - 500 Days of Summer...awkwardly I rather appreciate Piggies. R. Right or left handed: Righty-o
S. Siblings: An older brother into all things designy and entrepreneurial. In fact he is the brains behind the awesome Positive Posters which is great and you should check it out immediately :)
T. Time you wake up: Depends on what time class starts, but I'm more of an early person. Typically an hour before I have to leave the house, I don't like to rush in the mornings. 
U. Underwear: Yes. Yes of course. Preferably with bright colours and patterns.
V. Vegetable you hate: Bok choy and brussel sprouts. I will never understand the appeal. 
W. What makes you run late: My horrific internet addiction. Especially twitter (@cath_elizabeth if you want to follow me, hehe) and facebook. Although I'm a compulsively early person so for me, running late is getting somewhere 10 minutes early instead of 15. 
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Many on my teeth for things like braces and getting my wisdom teeth out. When I was 13 I had to have 9 stubborn baby teeth pulled out to make room for braces. It was pretty uncool. 
Y. Yummy food that you make: I make pretty amazing chocolate chip cookies, but my recipe is super secret so don't even think about asking! :P
Z. Zoo animal: This is even harder than the colour question. I'm a bit of an animal nerd, so it's tempting for me to just list ALL the zoo animals ever! But, I love the seals, and the otters, and the butterfly house at Melbourne Zoo...and the bears...and the reptiles...and yeah, pretty much everything really. 


  1. We must come up with nicknames for ourselves!

  2. Really we must! Sadly I am fresh out of inspiration...
