I saw Cagey do this meme the other day and knew I had to snag it for myself. I also knew I was going to feel like a warmed-over pile of poop today, recovering from our trip to Elko and such. So having a comfy meme to slip on and cozy up to is just what the doctor ordered. You might not learn anything new about me. But then again, maybe you will. If you wanna do it, just snag it for your own self and let me know in the comments so I can come peep at your answers.
A is for age: I’ll be turning 33 in exactly a month. I think I’m at the point now where it’s all just OLD. I’m OLD, ya’ll. OLD. Sometimes I wonder where my 20’s went. And then I look at my nine year old (!!) and go, “Oh yeah.”
B is for burger of choice: In ‘n Out Burger. Hands down. Easy choice. There are a lot of burgers I like, though. I’m an equal opportunity burger-lover. It’s just that In ‘n Out’s is the absolute best bang for the buck.
C is for the car I drive: A 2003 tan metallic Dodge Grand Caravan. It’s paid off, you know. That makes us both insanely happy. Maybe in a year we’ll get a new vehicle but right now, we’re happy with the van. And it still blows my mind that I actually NEED a van now. We have actually had to tell people we don’t have room for them in our van because of all the kids. BLOWS MY MIND.
D is for your dog’s name: Beetoe. Short for “Mistletoe”. Harry couldn’t pronounce Mistletoe when he was little so Beetoe it is. Then there’s Holly. Formerly known as Poptart. And commonly known as Pup. Yeah. All our pets have nicknames. Someday I’ll have to tell you all more about the cat we named Cheyenne but called Stinky.
E is for essential item you use every day: Yeah, that’s gotta be my iPhone. I have an all new appreciation for it after this last weekend. There are just so many ways in which that little gadget makes my life better. Seriously! I know, a lot of people poo-poo the cost of the data plan… whatever. IT’S WORTH IT. Let me repeat that: IT IS WORTH IT. I would marry the damned thing if I could.
F is for favorite TV show at the moment: I’ll have to go with “Fringe” for now, even though not a week goes by that it doesn’t freak me the heck out. I cringe every episode at least once. Other than that, I would have to say “How I Met Your Mother”.
G is for favorite game: Gah. I would have said “Halo” once upon a time but I haven’t been playing a lot of video games. I have been playing an embarassing amount of “Make Me A Celebrity” on Facebook, though I’m starting to lose interest.
H is for home state: California. I know, I know. Heh. It’s a nice place, don’t get me wrong. But too warm and mild and crowded and expensive for my tastes. Nevada isn’t much better (waaaaay too warm) (and brown) (and Republican), but it’s a step in the right direction.
I is for instruments you play: Yeah…. no.
J is for favorite juice: Oh dear, I have to pick a FAVORITE? So hard! I love grapefruit juice. Love it! I also have a serious fondness for Simply Apple (even though I generally don’t enjoy apple juice). But to be honest, I love pretty much all juice. I’m a juice fiend.
K is for whose bum you’d like to kick: Hmm, where’s my list?
L is for last restaurant at which you ate: I take it you don’t mean fast food (McDonald’s, FYI). Let me think… I guess it’d have to be Chili’s. I know, not terribly exciting.
M is for your favorite Muppet: I used to love watching The Muppet Show. I think Kermit had to be my favorite because he was a) the star and b) humble. And he was also on Sesame Street, which I watched. So he was the first “super star” I really knew. I can remember listening to “Rainbow Connection” over and over and over.
N is for number of piercings: Two. I tried on many occasions to get my ears double pierced but they kept healing back up again and getting infected and bleh. I finally just gave up. I think I still have the double holes though because I just remembered that I was able to get earrings in them last year. Huh. I’ll have to go check.
O is for overnight hospital stays: Let’s see. FOURTEEN. GAH. Yeah, I’ve had four c-sections. Some of them I stayed four nights, some I stayed three. FOURTEEN. OMG.
P is for people you were with today: Hmm. Today has barely started yet. So just Kile, Harry, Liam and Evie. And the dogs. But they don’t count.
Q is for what you do with your quiet time: Read blogs, write, read. I might watch a movie. A lot of times, I just sit in the quiet and read a magazine or read blogs on my iPhone. Sometimes the quiet is very relaxing. And if I feel so inclined, I might take a nap.
R is for biggest regret: It’s hard to have regrets when you’re content with your life as it is. Because all the mistakes helped bring you to where you are today. I do regret the way I treated the guy I went to the prom with. And I do regret getting myself into credit card debt in my first couple years of college.
S is for status: Just ate breakfast, Kile’s getting ready to leave and so is Harry… The day is getting started and I’m getting my wits about me. I have a quite a bit of laundry to do today.
T is for time you woke up today: I’m not sure since I no longer possess a working watch and I don’t have a clock on my side of the bed and I didn’t have my iPhone upstairs with me. But I think it was 7:30.
U is for what you consider unique about yourself: I’ve sat here for a loooong time trying to think of what is unique about me and I have come up blank. Maybe what is unique about me is that there is nothing unique about me. Wow, that’ll freak you out if you think about it too hard.
V is for vegetable you love: Broccoli is probably my favorite. I love it made just about any way you can think of. I also like asparagus in limited quantities. Corn is nice too though I sometimes don’t care to eat it off the cob. (Too messy!)
W is for worst habit: I’ll give you a hint: it’s in the title of this blog. I think I’m too lazy a lot of the time. so that one thing stems out to a lot of other things, like housecleaning and such.
X is for x-rays you’ve had: Besides dental x-rays, I’ve had x-rays of my broken ankle. And let me just say that getting a broken ankle x-rayed when they don’t really believe you’ve broken it is akin to torture. Of course, afterward when they had proof I’d broken it they were a lot nicer to me so there was that.
Y is for yummy food you ate today: Again, today just barely started. So all I’ve had is a bowl of bran flakes with some sugar sprinkled on top. Wee! *sigh*
Z is for zodiac: Sagittarius. Woot woot!
In other news, I’ve reviewed some super nifty, sorta spendy and completely awesome Christmas cards over on my review blog. Go have a look, will ya?
