A is for Akers and Armstrong
Carrie's two all-time favorite athletes are Lance Armstrong, whose pictures cover her San Jacinto dorm room, and Michelle Akers, with whom she compares her soccer game.
B is for Burnt Orange
According to Carrie, burnt orange represents the best athletic school in the nation, not to mention that she feels it is a beautiful color and compliments her skin tone.
C is for Chuy's
Where Carrie enjoys feasting on the 'Big as Yo' Face' burrito with green sauce.
D is for Drag
The Drag doesn't just mean weird people, slow traffic and coffee to Carrie, she actually shops on the Drag with friends during her spare time.
E is for Eaton
Since age six, Carrie has been following in the footsteps of her surfer father. She now names Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach (San Diego, Calif.) as her favorite surf spot. Her board of choice? A light-blue, eight and one half foot Eaton.
F is for Funny-lookin'
He's neurotic, skinny, pale, has wacky red hair and according to Carrie, Conan's the funniest guy on late-night television. According to her, he is also a little funny-lookin'.
G is for Garner, Jennifer Garner
In Carrie's spectacular, autobiographical (did we mention blockbuster) hit film, Garner, would get the starring role. Why? Because Garner is one tough cookie, and reminds Carrie's sister of her. Must be all that spy stuff.
H is for Hair Bands
Carrie loves her hair bands—Twisted Sister in particular, but don't tease her about her music because she's "Not Gonna' Take It..."
I is for Italy, Ice Cream, Island and "It's Not About the Bike"
WOW! Lots of eyes. Carrie's favorite place in the whole world is Como, Italy, and if Como were an island and she just happened to be stranded there with 24 hours left to live, she would inhale ice cream by the gallon, read her favorite book, which is Lance Armstrong's freshman page-turner "It's Not About the Bike," and bring along island-mates David Beckham, Justin Timberlake and the oh-so-chivalrous Heath Ledger.
J is for Jif & Jelly
Carrie's favorite pre-game meal is peanut butter and jelly, and her female, okay maybe just hunger, instincts agree with 'choosy moms' by choosing Jif. By the way, she sticks to creamy PB.
K is for Kinesiology
Carrie finds her kinesiology classes intriguing. Besides, who wouldn't want to spend their school day talking about sports.
L is for Lottery
Get a shovel—if Carrie wins the lottery she wants to bury it all so nobody can find it—except for her, of course. After that Carrie would make a shopping list of what she wanted to spend her fortune on.
M is for Mraz & McGraw
The last concert Carrie went to was a Jason Mraz acoustic show in San Diego, which she described as "very chill and laid-back," but she likes that crazy country too, citing Tim McGraw live in the Cox Arena (San Diego) as the best show she has ever seen.
N is for No Nuts
As much as Carrie loves ice cream she insists on no nuts, and that goes for everything she eats. She just plain doesn't like nuts.
O is for the Olympics
Carrie's ultimate SportsCenter highlight is scoring the winning goal for Team USA on a diving header in double overtime. She has a flair for the dramatic.
P is for President Jack Black
If Carrie could elect any non-political figure for President of the United States, we would be calling Jack Black, Mr. President. Carrie says President Black would keep things interesting and he happens to remind her of her best friend, whose political skills would prompt her to run for the border. Hmmm...
Q is for Quotable Movie
Spend enough time around Carrie and you might hear her say, "Do you realize what you've done? Just when I thought things couldn't get worse, you do something like this and totally redeem yourself!" If you don't recognize this "Dumb and Dumber" quote, it's never too late to make a trip to Blockbuster and rent one of Carrie's all-time favorites.
R is for "Roker on the Road" & "Rachael Ray"
Carrie loves the good food in Austin, but she also loves the Food Network, including shows such as "Roker on the Road" and "Rachael Ray." She says that her dream job would be to travel the world sampling foods from different cultures like Rachael Ray in "$40 a Day."
S is for Star Struck?
Not Carrie. When asked which three people she would like to sit down to dinner with, she simply said, "My Gramps."
T is for The Real World
Carrie lists "The Real World" as her favorite reality television show, and has really enjoyed the beginning of the Philadelphia season, especially Landon's confessional antics. She also says that the San Diego season did a good job of accurately representing the city.
U is for Urban Outfitters
When Carrie is on the Drag she is always sure to hit up her favorite store—Urban Outfitters, and if you were to give her a $1,000 shopping spree, that would be stop number one on her parade of stores.
V is for Volleyball
If Carrie weren't a midfielder she would love to head over to Gregory Gym and put a few spikes down as an outside hitter on the Longhorns volleyball team.
W is for Wambach
Make Carrie the general manager of your soccer team and she would begin building the team around Abby Wambach because of her great leadership qualities, consistency and dedication to team effort.
X is for CrucifiXion
Carrie is a Christian and if she could have witnessed any event in history it would have been the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. She would love to have been humbled by those events and all of the history from that time period.
Y is for Yellowcard
Carrie really enjoys music and recently one of her favorites is Yellowcard, mixed in with a little Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake.
Z is for Zack Attack!
"When I wake up in the morning and the alarm gives out a warnin'..." Yes, that's right, Carrie grew up addicted to "Saved by the Bell." Kelly Kapowski should have been watching her back, because Carrie would have loved to take her place in all the school dance episodes with Zack. Her favorite episode? The one where Zack actually puts his education to use and tapes his voice on all of the girls' tapes so they will subconsciously fall in love with him while listening to some tunes. Of course, the plan backfired and there was a nice little moral lesson for all to learn from at the end.
You can almost hear that bell ringing now...
