Accent: Since most of my customers are American, I do get called on my Canadian accent when I use words like ‘about’. One of the best compliments for me is when people tell me I have no accent when speaking German.
Booze: Yes, please! I had to acquire a taste for both beer and wine, but my love for Vodka (tall, with soda, cran and a lime wedge) came to me naturally.
Chore I Hate: Hate is a very strong word now, isn’t it? I dislike vacuuming. I hope to have mostly hardwood floors if I ever have a house, as I much prefer cleaning those (in fact, I have a rather abnormal fondness for it, just ask my sis)
Dogs/Cats: both. I recently ‘got over’ a cat allergy, actually. I was getting more and more house sits with felines, so I had no choice. Antihistamines make me loopy. Mind over matter!
Essential electronics: Besides the brand spankin’ new PDA I received as a b-day gift? (I know I’m spoiled). I think once my music is uploaded onto it, I’ll be all set!
Favorite perfume/cologne: After sampling several thousand different ones every time I go through a drug store, I finally broke down and purchased a set of mini Alfred Sung ones: Shi (blue & purple), Jewel and Sung.
Gold/Silver: Definitely Silver. Or platinum. Or white gold. As long as there is a honkin’ diamond attached. Just kidding.
Hometown: I would consider t to be Calgary… Spent age 5-18 here, and 27-now (excluding a little shy of a blissful year spent in the Yoho Valley)
Insomnia: not very frequently
Job Title: which one? I like ‘housesitter extrordinaire’ , but I’m also an account executive and a catering server/bartender
Kids: someday… tick tick tick (hey, can you hear that?)
Living Arrangements: this is an interesting one! I’ve had 9 different sits this year so far. I’m like a turtle/gypsy, transporting most of my stuff from place to place in my car, Jules. Officially, I rent my sister’s basement suite, but am rarely to never there.
Most Admired Trait: people comment that I am genuine and kind hearted.
Overnight Hospital Stays: nope
Phobias: deep water that I can’t see the bottom of. Boats.
Quote: “Be the change you wish to see in the World” -Gandhi
Religion: I go to the Center for Positive Living
Siblings: 2 brothers, 2 sistas. Brothers are both in Ontario, my sisters are here.
Time I usually wake up: lately just before 7.
Unusual talent: tying cherry stems in knots with my teeth and many more
Vegetable I refuse to eat: can’t think of any!
Worst habit: procrastination. It took me 4 days to write this!
X-rays: for my teeth a couple of times. Try to avoid ‘em.
Yummy foods I make: I make a mean guacamole!
Zodiac Sign: Twins. And I’m Wood Tiger
