Alphabet Meme

Alphabet Meme

Because I love Maria, and I want to be her when I grow up.
A. Age
B. Bed Size
C. Chore you hate.
Pretty much all of them. If I have to pick just one, I’d have to say cleaning the bathroom.
D. Dogs.
Just the one, Buster. Or, as he’s known around here – Dorky Dog.
E. Essential start of day.
Coffee, with Splenda and extra cream. It could be hot or cold, either one is fine.
F. Favorite color.
G. Gold or silver.
It used to be strictly gold, but over the past few years, I’ve switched over to silver. I probably shouldn’t admit it, but I wear both silver and gold every day. My bracelet, earrings and rings are all silver, but I wear a gold chain with gold charms. One is a little boy charm with my son’s birthstone in the center. The other is a mother/baby charm with diamond that my ex-husband gave me the Christmas after my son was born. I wear this chain every single day, and it’s very, very rare that it comes off my neck.
H. Height.
5’3”. Or at least I used to be. I have a feeling I’ve shrunk some over the years.
I. Instruments played.
Most of you know I was a band geek. I played flute and piccolo in the band from grade school through high school. I also taught myself to play the clarinet and saxophone (the instruments my sister and brother played, briefly, in grade school). I can pluck out a tune on the piano, but can’t do chords. I also tried to teach myself to play the guitar, but that didn’t last very long. I couldn’t stick it out long enough to develop the necessary calluses on my fingertips.
J. Job title.
Mom, teacher, in that order.
K. Kids.
Just the one and only Stud Muffin.
L. Live.
In the greatest city in all the world, Chicago!
M. Mom's name.
N. Nickname.
There are many, most not appropriate for this post. For many years, my ex-husband referred to me as Chilly, as in Chilly Willy. One of Stud’s favorites is Mommy Zommy Salami Swami.
O. Overnight Hospital Stays.
I had my tonsils removed when I was 4. The next stay was when my little darling was born.
P. Pet Peeve
Wow, where do I begin? People who talk during movies, people who leave the toilet seat up, bad drivers…wow, I’m gonna stop right there. I’m starting to sound like a crabby bitch.
Q. Quote from a movie.
"Fuck you, fuck you and fuck you!! Who’s next?”
R. Right or left handed?
S. Siblings.
One of each, both younger than me.
T. Time you wake up.
During the school year, probably 6:00. So far this summer, anywhere from 5:30-7:00.
U. Underwear.
Yes, please. I think is repulsive that some people actually walk around without it!!! Full-coverage briefs, just for the record.
V. Vegetable you dislike.
W. What makes you run late.
In the mornings, when I check my e-mail and/or read my bloglist. I often lose track of time.
X. X rays you have had done.
Dental exams every year. My wrist when I broke it in 5th grade. Many of my spine, thanks to my scoliosis. Chest x-ray to rule out pneumonia. Do mammograms count?
Y. Yummy food you make.
At the risk of sounding like a braggart, I don’t know where to start with this one. Some of my personal favorites that I make are my veggie lasagna, crock pot Mexican chicken, fudge and taffy apple salad.
Z. Zoo animal.
Do I really even need to answer this one?! Well, I guess there might be one of you out there who’s new so I’d better say it – PENGUIN!
All done. So easy!

Fellow band geek here! I played the trumpet...but it doesn't sound like I was nearly as musically talented as you.

Susan said...

Thanks for the email. I miss you too!! I was a clarinet playing band geek and I've had so many xrays I should be getting the cancer any day. Shoot me the recipe for the Mexican chicken. Please??!!!!
