My First ICLW

Hello, ICLWers!

This is my first time participating, and all of a sudden I have stage fright! What the heck am I supposed to say? I guess an introduction is in order, and since I am now at a loss for words, I'm going to steal some other bloggers' idea and introduce myself through the awesome power of a survey.

Me: Kitty, Kit, Mrs. Von D, and a slew of other alter-egos.

DH: Hubs, a.k.a. Aaron

How we met: We went to the same schools from kindergarten through high school, and our younger brothers were friends... but we never spoke to each other until I was 22 and he was 23. Turns out you really can find true love in a bar!

Furry child: Atticus Archimedes Aloysius the cat

Where we call home: Sunny southern CA

Time TTC: On the record - 19 months. (Off the record - 2.5 years - since we got married.)

Reason for IF: Unexplained. Possibly endo, we'll know by the end of the year. I can't decide if I'm hoping they find endo or not...

Hobbies: Blogging, sometimes knitting, sometimes snowboarding, sometimes taking photos and sometimes Photoshopping. I'm trying to find one that will stick. I need an outlet!

Biggest pet peeve: People who drive too slow in the left lane. Or bad customer service. Or general rudeness. ...People who have too many pet peeves?

Favorite book: Pride and Prejudice. I LOVE that book. I try to read it every year.

Currently dreading: Leading a conference call in half an hour.

When I'm sad: I cry, make myself a drink, and veg out.

The best thing about life right now: I'm not on that conference call YET! (Of course, life will be better when the call is over.)

Favorite dessert: Chocolate lava souffle a la mode. How obvious is it that I'm PMSing?

All-time favorite band: Queen. Hands down.

Dram vacation destination: Greece. My family is Greek and I've always wanted to go.

Fears: Spiders, the dark, public speaking, the mall on Black Friday.

My favorite of DH's physical traits: His hair. It's so thick!!

His favorite of mine: My booty. I've got some junk in my trunk.

I hope this helps you get to know me a little, thanks for popping in; I'll see you on the interweb!

Hey Kit, I am so happy that you decided to do ICLW this time around ! I enjoyed reading through your answers and I have to add in Jane Austen is becoming one of my faves also.

Nice to meet you! I liked your little survey, I might have to steal that for myself next time. Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book too!

I love your cat's name. Where in the world did you come up with that?

Kitty said...

E - Hubs helped me come up with "Atticus," and when I found out my brother gave his cat a ridiculously long name, I copied him. Those were just the longest names I could think of that started with A!

I'm with you on Black Friday. Never been so scared for my life before. :-)

Atticus the Catticus... (sorry, it immediately came into my head). Very cute!

Nice to meet you!


Amy said...

Great cat name. I appreciate the ridiculous in the naming of animals.

Nice to meet you and welcome to ICLW.

Welcome to ICLW. This is only my second time participating. I read on your side bar that you had an appt about have a LAP done. How did that go? My 2nd LAP is this Tuesday.

Happy ICLW!!!!
I loved your introduction! And your cat! Hope you enjoy all the commenting! And that you find some answers soon. Oh and one of my faults is that I like to put exclamation marks at the end of every sentence!!!!

Welcome to ICLW! Its very nice to "meet" you. I think its nice to have several different hobbies. I get bored very easily, so by having several hobbies I can do one until I tire of it, then move onto the next. I eventually come back around to each of them :D

Have a great ICLW!

Great post! I love your blog layout, by the way! (I, too, have a lot of pet peeves, so don't feel bad! lol)

I'm new to ICLW as well so I'm also trying to get the hang of things. Oh and you're not alone - I met my husband in a bar too! We used to say it wasn't the story to tell the grandkids, but now I'll be so happy to a kid to tell it to!

Nice to meet you. sounds like we have a lot in common. I am not Greek but have been to the Greek Isles. They are absolutely beautiful.My husband and I also went to school together but never knew each other. he was friends with my brother. We met in a bar when I was 22. I had a lap and they found endo but zapped pretty much all of it out. I feel it's better to know. Come by and visit my non profit's blog.
