I’ve been tagged for a Meme by Libby! (In case you don’t know, a Meme is like an online chain letter. You don’t have to participate if you’re tagged, but they are fun to do.)
So, here we go!
A. Attached or Single? Attached. My hubby and I have been attached since the beginning of 1997, and legally bound since November 2000.
B. Best Friend? Would it be too sappy to say my hubby? Seriously, he’s my best friend of the male persuasion. I have a lot of really close girlfriends, and the definitions get kinda blurry. I do have one true “best friend” from high school and one from college. You two know who you are.
C. Cake or pie? For some reason, this question reminds me of Eddy Izzard’s skit “Cake or Death?” Ha! Only, this one is a slightly harder question. That being said, I’d definitely choose Pie. And not just any ol’ piece of pie…but the crust of the pie. The crust is my absolute favorite part of any pie, and it always has been. You can ask my mom. She even put that little tidbit in my babybook.
D. Day of choice? Every day that we have a choice is a great day! Oh wait. I think this means something else. I think my favorite day of the week is Saturday. My favorite day of the year is my birthday, tied with a close second for Claire’s birthday, with Christmas chugging up close behind. (Daddy’s birthday, though exciting, is just a slow runner in this race, apparently.)
E. Essential item? Wow. It’s funny how this answer has changed for me over the years. If I had to boil it down, I’d have to say “electricity” because it’s used to power everything fun and important in my life, but just as I was typing that, I thought how nice it would be to be on a nice little island, breezes blowing, hammock in the shade…WiFi would be nice, but not essential. An icemaker would be nice, but not essential. Then, it hit me. TiVO. I’m not sure I could live without TiVO. Because, island getaway or not, I want my shows to be recorded and sitting patiently for my return.
F. Favorite color? Lavender. Purple. Cobalt blue. In that order, usually.
G. Gummy bears or worms? Bears. Definitely Gummy Bears. I’ll never forget licking the backs of them and sticking them on random objects when I was in Junior High. (We actually did this in one of my classes, with teacher approval, on purpose. I never was a true rebel.)
H. Hometown? I was born in a small town in the middle of a state in the Midwest. I grew up on a farm.
I. Favorite indulgence? Chocolate Truffles. There is a “Chocolate Factory” store near us that makes the most amazing chocolate truffles. Mmmmmmmmm.
J. January or July? In July, I prefer January. In January, I prefer July. Am I hard to please? Why do you ask?
K. Kids? The technical term for baby goats. Yes, I have one child. She is 2.5. I have two children if you count the 35 yr old male also in my charge.
L. Life isn’t complete without? Laughter. I honestly believe that. I laugh so hard every day. Sometimes at myself. Sometimes at others. Sometimes at others laughing at myself and/or others. A day without laughter is much too stressful, if you ask me. In fact, if you haven’t laughed today, you weren’t really paying attention.
M. Marriage date? Well, my wedding date is in November of 2000, but the marriage lasts longer than that.
N. Number of brothers and sisters? I have two younger sisters and a younger brother.
O. Oranges or Apples? Apples. I love apple juice and orange juice, but I can’t drink orange juice on an empty stomach or I get an upset tummy.
P. Phobias? I don’t have any technical “phobias,” meaning that none of my fears are debilitating. I can do what I need to do in the presence of them. That being said, I don’t like spiders or tornadoes.
Q. Quotes? “Do or do not; there is no try.” ~Yoda So true, Yoda. So true.
R. Reasons to smile? It is impossible to get through the day with my hubby and/or my daughter and not smile. Before Claire came along, my hubby kept me rollin’…and now the two of them are a riot.
S. Season of choice? I prefer Fall. I love the colors of the leaves, the coolness in the air and the smell of both burning leaves and wood burning stoves.
T. Tag 5 people: I can only pick five? Okay, here they are! Mayberry Magpie, My Two Pennies, Noble Pig, Alyndabear, Weebles Wobblog. (You are busy ladies, so I won’t be offended if you aren’t into Memes…I just thought I’d tag you. So…You’re it!) Or, if you’re looking for a fun exercise to get your blogging juices flowing, and you want to play along too, feel free to use this idea!
U. Unknown fact about me? Well, if I told you, it wouldn’t be unknown now, would it?
V. Vegetable? I love asparagus. I think it’s my favorite.
W. Worst habit? I tend to pick my fingernail cuticles when I’m nervous.
X. X-ray or Ultrasound? I’ve had both. They are both cool technologies. In my experience, ultrasounds are usually happier events.
Y. Your favorite food? If I have to pick my very favorite, I’d say sushi. But, I love a bunch of different types of food, with Italian and German Restaurants teetering at the tippy top of my list, too.
Z. Zodiac sign? Pisces! Here Fishy Fishy Fishy. The Aquamarine is March’s birthstone, and I have two of them in my wedding ring setting.
