abc easy as 123

This is a fun little alphabet meme that I stole from Lora, who stole it from Pam who lifted it from Hannah . . . . or so they say.

Age: 6x3-7+22/3+27

Bed size: King. Our marriage is MUCH better for it.

Chore you dislike: cleaning the dried pee on the base of the toilet (young boy in the house . . . I hope)

Dogs: Love the idea but not so much in practice. Our last dog whom we lovingly called the brown tornado, went kookoo for Coco Puffs. Seriously. Too many crossed wires.

Essential start to your day: Quiet. No requests. Coffee with creamer and sugar within 10 minutes of my feet hitting the floor.

Favorite color: You know the color a sunset makes over the ocean? Yeah, that color.

Gold or silver: diamonds ;)

Height: Really? Why do they have to rub it in? I have a lack of height, actually. Vertically challenged. 4 feet 11 & 3/4 inches . . . . and YES that 3/4 counts!!!!!

Instruments you play(ed): I rocked the trumpet. My lips are fabulous.

Job title: If 'job' is defined as something you get paid for, then I ain't got one. I do like to pancreate in my spare time.

Kids: Three fabulously awschum kidlets.

Live: Fully! I love my life. I reside in the flat state of Iowa. But wait! Don't judge. I am from Nebraska ~ Gooooooooo Huskers!

Mom’s name: Suzanne

Nicknames: Amer, Shorty the Pimp, Thelma, Mmmoooooooooommmmm, Babe, Hon, & meow.

Overnight hospital stays: None I remember liking . . . the food is always horrible and the wake-up calls are too early.

Pet Peeves: 'Sounds' when I am 'in a mood'. Maybe you should ask my family what my pet peeves are . . . they know.

Quote from a movie: "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means"

Righty or Lefty: Righty . . . and thank goodness! If you know me personally you know why I say this

Siblings: A sister and a brother . . . and three step-sisters who are no longer steps, but still sisters.

Time you wake up: When I have to.

Underwear: Depends.  Get it! 

Vegetables you don’t like: Hominy. Wait, is hominy a vegetable or a grain?

What makes you run late: Life

X-Rays you’ve had: Many, many brain scans. Still inconclusive if I have one. hehehehehehehehe

Yummy food you make: I am told all my food is yummy. They are a smart family and know where their next meal may or MAY NOT come from.

Zoo animal favorite: Peacocks because they always scared the crap out of my sister.

Lora said...

Whud up Shorty the pimp?!?!
No seriously... I have to know about "Meow". Does it have something to do with the lips? ;)

Yeah, whats up with the pee on the base of the toilet? AND When the heck do they stop?

My favorite movie EVER!!!
And you must have heard about my short substitute teacher career. The kids wanted to know my age when they came into the room. I gave them a math problem.
I may have to take to my sad little blog.

Liked the one about pee!

Jenni at talking hairdryer said...

I feel the very same way about coffee and just scheduled a post for tomorrow about the subject.

I don't know how old they are when it stops, but my boy is old enough to clean his own pee fromt he side of the toilet, and does so often. I HATE that chore.

Hallie said...

Diamonds.... Why didn't I think of that?!? :)

Misty said...

Well, first of all as I said on Joanne's Meme...I never can remember how old I am. So I might be 6x3-7+22/3+27...or maybe -1??

Loved reading all your answers. Made me smile :)
