The ABCs of Me
Accent: Accent? I don’t have an accent. I am one of the few people in the world who don’t.
Breakfast or no breakfast: Of course, breakfast. Lately, it’s been toasted whole wheat bread smeared with cream cheese, along with a cup of yogurt, but I’ve been known to eat almost anything. Cold pizza is a favorite.
Chore I don’t care for: cleaning, folding laundry, pulling weeds…oh, was I supposed to just pick one?
Dog or Cat: none at all, since dd moved out with her cats, but I have noticed several friendly spiders I might tame
Essential Electronics: Gotta have my computer, but I can do without all the other stuff. I really hate people having their ears plugged so that I can’t talk to them!
Favorite Cologne: Halston (or eau de onion, if I’ve been cooking)
Gold or Silver: have I none
Handbag I carry most often: Most often? You mean change? Nah, purses are tools, not fashion accessories. I’ve carried the same one for years. It’s a big black leather thing that will hold pretty much anything, including large hardback books and caterpillars.
Insomnia: nope, I sleep like a log. (Where did that phrase come from, anyway?)
Job Title: wifemomteachercooklaundressmaid
Kids: No, no goats at all, just my four children, one of whom is married
Living Arrangements: rather disorganized and noisy, but happy
Most Admirable Trait: My tendency to go absolutely blank on questions like this?
Naughtiest Childhood Behavior: None of your business–I try to forget those things..
Overnight hospital stays: Three times, I think, but I can’t remember for sure. My memory is a little fuzzy. Hospitals do that to me. And childbirth. And surgery. And life in general.
Phobias: small closed spaces. Therefore I cannot clean closets. And cold. Ditto freezers.
Quote: Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. -Helen Keller, who never saw the sunshine, but she could feel it!
Reason to smile: Well, I’ve heard it only takes a few muscles to smile, and a lot more to frown (I forget the exact numbers) and I’ve always tended to be a little lazy, so it just makes sense to smile.
Siblings: Well, they’re not too bad, I guess, as siblings go. Smart, of course, like their little sister.
Time I wake up: Lately I’ve been waking up early (Which to me means anything before 7:30) and it really irritates me because I think it’s a sign of getting old. And that is the only reason I am doing this inane thing this morning, because I’m up and bored.
Unusual Talent or Skill: Now that’s a good question.
Vegetable I Refuse to Eat: Refuse to EAT? What a ridiculous idea.
Worst Habit: Not finishing my
X-Rays: Boy, they were hard up for a question here, weren’t they? Does anyone really care about x-rays? No, I didn’t think so.
Yummy Stuff: Hazelnut coffee creamer, which I am out of this morning
Zoo Animal I Like Most: monkeys and apes
Now that I have this important stuff finished, I need to go stir my crock pot and my kids. Have a beautiful day, everyone!
