Instead of writing a blog (or working on writing for that matter), I decided to take a cue from the lovely, stylish and talented Kristen Painter. Tomorrow I'll dish about the books I bought, and maybe the lunch at Olive Garden. (Or perhaps something interesting and enlightening.)
Without further ado.... The Alphabet Meme:
A: Accent - According to an accent quiz I took a couple weeks ago, it's Midwest.
B: Breakfast or No Breakfast - Ugh, I can't even look at food first thing in the morning. I do like breakfast for lunch or dinner, though.
C: Chore I Hate - Dusting. No wait, vacuuming. No... Dishes. Definitely dishes. Or maybe laundry. Do I have to pick just one?
D: Dog or Cat? - Right now, I have a cat, but someday I want both. Lots of both.
E: Essential Electronics - Computer, printer, television, CD player, and radio
F: Favorite Perfume - Sung
G: Gold or Silver - Gold
H: Handbag I Carry Most Often - I only have one. It's big, it's black and it's leather.
I: Insomnia - Only when I'm stressing out about something - like now
J: Job Title - My husband says I'm in charge of domestic affairs.
K: Kids - One teenage daughter
L: Living Arrangements - Shifting too often for my tastes
M: Most Admirable Trait - Well, I'll just say that I was born in the year of the dog, and go with those traits.
N: Naughtiest Childhood Behavior - Getting my older siblings in trouble by tattling on them
O: Overnight Hospital Stays - Two nights when my daughter was born, and 6 weeks after my accident
P: Phobias - Moths, Suffocation
Q: Quote - I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man or ask him to live for mine. - The Strikers' Oath - Ayn Rand (May not be exact... I'm going from memory here.)
R: Reason to Smile - I'm alive. I have a husband who loves me and a daughter who's going to rule the world (or at least her part of it). =o)
S: Siblings - Two of each
T: Time I wake up - when my husband's alarm goes off. Depends on the day.
U: Unusual Talent or Skill - I can whistle inhaling and exhaling.
V: Vegetable I refuse to eat - Brussel Sprouts
W: Worst Habit - Going out in public in clothes that could land me on "What Not To Wear"
X: X-rays - Too many to count.
Y: Yummy Stuff - Yes. But seriously... recently I've become addicted to Chocolate Monster ice cream, but I think a lot of foods are yummy
Z: Zoo Animal I Like the Best - I haven't been to the zoo in years, but I really liked the polar bears at the Detroit Zoo.
Since I never force memes on other people, feel free to join in if you want. Just leave a comment and let me know so I can read your responses, too. =o)
