But Enough About Me, A-Z


Shannon at Something for Your “Sight Eyes” tagged me with the A-Z meme going around.

A- Attached or Single? Attached. A lifer, I am.
B- Best Friend: Lori has been my best friend for the longest time. My closest local friend – pity her, eh? – is Joanne.
C- Cake or Pie: An ice cream cake. Sadly, none of the horrid children of mine like it, so I only get to eat it when I happen upon a party they’ve been invited to and I get to eat their slice. Philistines!
D- Drink of Choice: Diet Coke. Since 1982. I’m an original Diet Cokehead.
E- Essential Item: With me at all times? Money.
F- Favorite Color: Purple. Although black is what I wear most. Or what I used to wear most. Now? Blue, as in blue jeans. I’m optimistic they’re not too much the mom jeans ridiculed throughout the land.
G- Gummy Bears or Worms? Chocolate covered gummy bears. A feast to behold.
H- Hometown: None. Military brat.
I- Indulgence: Galaxy Minstrels. Ubiquitous to you Brits, you can’t find them here without paying a pretty penny.
J- January or February: February because we get a weeklong break from school and the shocking Christmas bills arrive in January.
K- Kids: Can’t stand to be away from them. (Can’t stand to be with them, either, but…)
L- Life is incomplete without: Bruce Springsteen.
M- Marriage Date: Why? Are you going to be sending us a gift? If so, this year it should be pottery or bronze.
N- Number of Siblings: Four: three brothers and one sister.
O- Oranges or Apples? Granny Smith Apples.
P- Phobia: Snakes.
Q- Favorite Quote: "We've already established what you are, ma'am. Now we're just haggling over the price."
R- Reasons to Smile: The kids, the spouse, the dog, the friends, the crazy idiots I encounter as I interact with the aforementioned.
S- Season: Summer because the kids are out of school, the pool is inviting, and we’ve got nothing we have to do. Alternatively, I adore the period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. I am a Christmas nut.
T- Tag Three: How about if you’re reading this and you’ve not done it, you can consider yourself tagged? Hardly fair in the spirit of a meme, but there you have it.
U- Unknown Fact About Me: For a period of time, I wrote obituaries for the Trenton Times.
V – Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animals? Oppressor with cheese, thanks.
W- Worst Habit: Blogging.
X – X-rays or Ultrasounds? MRI. Many issues with my neck. I am old. I am getting older.
Y- Your Favorite Foods: Chocolate.
Z- Zodiac: A bitchy perfectionist. Hmmmm, I’d say that makes me a Virgo.
