ABC time killer.

Good day.
I am not feeling very productive at the moment, and why not put off my to-do list for the day a little longer.  Anyone else just hate unpacking suitcases?  
I am back in Toronto, my grandpa is moving from the hospital to a different one with rehabilitation.   He is no longer in critical condition, and boy oh boy can he prove doctors wrong.  (He was given weeks to live after fighting cancer in 1994.)  I should write a post about him soon.

In the meantime, a little frivolity.  I haven't done a questionnaire in a long time.  Unlike the days in high school when I'd get emailed them constantly and be sending them to everyone on MSN.
(Side note: I am so old, that when I got my first email address, my parents didn't want me to have one.  They didn't want me 'chatting' with strangers on the internet.   I tried to explain - it wasn't ICQ!  Eventually I snuck a hotmail one - smilesfrommel.) 

A. Age: 28, until Tuesday.
B. Bed Size: Queen
C. Chore you hate: Cleaning bathrooms.  (Steve does it, I get laundry)
D.  Dogs: Are not my fave.  Especially if your dog jumps up on me and scratches me.  I secretly want to scream.  If I ever (not that I will) got a dog, it would be a dachshund.  They can't jump.
E.  Essential start to your day:: Lately I'm hooked on warm water & lemon.  Then breakfast.
F.  Favorite Color: Retro turquoise.  Shades of blue and green.
G.  Gold or Silver: Silver.  Or, white gold.
H.  Height: 5'7.
I.  Instruments you play: I played violin from grade 3 to 8.  Haven't picked it up in years.  Not sure if I remember how to read sheet music.
J.  Job Title: Freelance photographer/Photography Assistant
K.  Kids:  Someday.  Not anytime too soon.
L.  Live: In midtown Toronto.  It's pretty great.
M.  Mother's Name: Carole.
N.  Nicknames: Most of the time just Mel.  Sometimes Godecki, Mellie, Annie.  In the past: Mel Presidente (high school), Smell (my brother and cousins), Melanie the Melon cutter (elementary school kids are not very witty).
O.  Overnight hospital stays: Never.
P.  Pet Peeves: See D above. 
Q.  Quote from a Movie: At least you'll never be a vegetable - even artichokes have hearts.”- Amelie
R.  Right handed or Left handed.  I don't know if I would notice if my left hand disappeared. 
S.  Siblings: 1 brother, 1 sister.
T.  Time to wake up: 8:00 am.  Unless assisting, then it can be 5:30, ugh.
U.  Underwear: Are fun to shop for.
V.  Vegetables you hate: Green peppers.
W.  What makes you run late: Checking email one last time.  Occasionally public transit.
X.  X-rays you have: My lungs from when moving to France.  And they make you keep it at home. 
Y.  Yummy food that you make: Cookies. Fancy sandwiches.  Breakfast.
Z.  Zoo animals: Always look sad.  Except for the penguins. I'd be happy to leave Antarctica too.

Snagged the questions from A Tiny Rocket.   
And because I feel that I can't post without a picture - here's my new haircolour:

Taken in Photobooth.

Have a lovely day.


  1. Ooooh! I love this color. It's so vibrant! I used to be a redhead (see 'new' blog pic) but it was so much upkeep. It really suits you!

    And ICQ ... Oh those were the days! That takes me back.

  2. These are so much fun to read! I did one on my blog too. :) (you can find it at: And I love love LOVE your new haircolor!!

  3. That colour really is fantastic. It's a good look.

    Haha, big ol' LiveJournal-style questionnaire, huh? I might just have to do this.

  4. I LOVE your hair! That's such a cute pic!
    Sorry to hear your grandfather is in the hospital, but good news that he's moved to a place for rehabilitation.I hope he continues to be doing better.
    Love all the random facts - I just randomly found your blog and we have a few things in common: I am also in my late twenties (29 to be precise), I also live in Southern Ontario (Niagara Falls). I think we should be blog friends. :)
    Either way, I love your blog and will be back to visit!

  5. Oh thats such a beautiful hair colour!! Mine was similr until recently! xx
