A silly post, inspired by fellow blogger Jaime at friedpinktomato.blogspot.com, just for fun...
The ABC’s of Me…
A - Age: 31 (gah!) …or should I say, 29 + 2 anniversaries?
B - Bed Size: Queen …though with our two puppies in it, it’s getting a bit crowded… maybe one day we will upgrade to a King!
C - Chore you hate: All of them really! But vacuuming & cleaning the bathroom are the worst.
D - Dog's name: Lucy Belle and Lila. Lucy’s a soft coated wheaten terrier, and Lila is a wheaten/sheep dog mix.
E - Essential start your day item: I used to say caffeine---but now that that’s taboo, I guess I must say breakfast & water. …can’t start a car without gas, right?
F - Favorite color: blue or green
G - Gold or Silver: Prefer gold, but will wear silver if the outfit calls for it…
H - Height: 5' 7"
I - Instruments you play(ed): I was forced to take piano lessons as a child, for 6 long years as “part of my education.” Guess who can barely play chopsticks now?!
J - Job title: Peon. ...maybe that's not the technical term for the role, but it's still accurate.
K - Kid(s): Yeah yeah, workin’ on it.
L - Living arrangements: Traditional two-story home in an older neighborhood in suburban Atlanta. Despite the fact that my neighborhood lacks the requisite amenities of neighborhood pool & tennis court, I actually love my neighborhood. It was formed back in the late 60’s, when our area of town was considered “the boonies,” so the yards are big, the trees are older and very large, the streets are wide…and you don’t feel like you’re in Atlanta anymore when you drive into the neighborhood! ...such a nice feeling.
M - Mom's name: Peggy Jean
N - Nicknames: As I’m keeping this blog anonymous, I’ll share my childhood nicknames only. Bell, Bean, Monkey (apparently my folks couldn’t stop me from climbing anything in sight)
O - Overnight hospital: Thank goodness, no.
P - Pet peeve: Chewing your fingernails, people! Or clicking your pen incessantly… it’s like nails on a chalkboard to me… Negative people, or those who only want to tear others down, instead build them up.
Q - Quote from a movie: “Gerry, I'm a woman! We don't say what we WANT! But we reserve the right to get pissed off if we don't get it. That's what makes us so fascinating…And not a little bit scary.” Sliding Doors
R - Right or left handed: Right
S - Siblings: Two of ‘em, an older sister, and a younger brother.
T - Time you wake up: Weekdays—between 7:30 and 8 am. Weekends—as late as my pups will let me!
U - Underwear: Always!
V - Vegetable you dislike: brussel sprouts, asparagus out of a can (mushy and gross!), cauliflower.
W - Ways you run late: Umm… I’m a slow-mover in the mornings anyways… so combine that with my lack of sleep, inability to be proactive and choose my outfits the night before, and numerous failed attempts to get my one sleepy-head pup outside in the morning, and yeah—I’m pretty much always late. But hey—you get points for consistency, right?
X - X-rays you've had: Teeth, of course. Anywhere in the vicinity of my lady parts. Head ---due to an icy spill I took when I was young, and knocked my head against a tree… weeks and weeks of headaches for a child will almost guarantee you a CAT scan. Thankfully, no lasting brain damage—that I can recall. ;-)
Y - Yummy food you make: white chicken enchiladas from The Pioneer Woman…amazing! Also love making my grandmother’s cherry cobbler for holidays. Lightened breakfast casserole for weekdays… grilled veggies to go with whatever else is for dinner...
Z - Zoo favorite: Who can resist baby ANYTHING at the zoo?? Baby koala, baby penguin, baby black bears, baby monkeys? But overall, the monkeys. They’re just so funny to watch.
