Sunday Stealing: The Who Are You Meme

1. What is your biggest pet peeve?
  Space hogs. The guy who takes up a seat on the train for his backpacks. The woman who thinks it's more important for her water bottle and iPod to be on the locker room bench than my ass. You get the idea.
2. Where and when were you born?
Elgin, IL. I was born at the stroke of midnight, which, the hospital told my mother, is not legally acceptable for a birth certificate. She had to choose between 11:59 on the 21st and 12:01 on the 22nd. She chose the 22nd.

A rather rowdy party at my grandparents' house, when my grandparents were out of town.

Still in Chicagoland. And I live alone.

  2. #14 made me chuckle. I think of my quirks as loveable. Naturally.
