I really need to go to remedial blogging school because I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to do buttons! So this is my undecorated ABC meme:
A - Available or not: Married for 23 years, longer than I was single.
B - Best friend: I count my husband as best, but if we exclude husbands, probably my niece Erica. I feel very separate from all my friends right now, as apparently none of us are good about calling or writing.
C - Cake or pie: hard to say, I like both, but I think I like more types of pie than cake. And is cheesecake a cake or a pie? Doesn't really matter, I'll eat it either way.
D - Drink of choice: Diet Coke, but if I didn't have to mind my carbs it would be Starbucks Chai Latte.
E - Essential item you use every day: Palm Treo 600 PDA/Phone. It's my life.
F - Favorite color: Green - from Emerald to Forest, & Purple - deep Purple
G - Gummy bears or worms: Cherry Sours
H - Hometown: Irving, Tx
I - Indulgence: Good sheets and blankets, the best I can afford
J - January or February: February, it's the month for lovers, and it's my oldest's birthday
K - Kids and names: Andrea Rebecca - 20, Rachel Roxanne - 17, Zachary Dennis - 14, Joe (the dog) - 4
L - Life is incomplete without: my hubby and aforementioned kids (and dog)
M - Marriage date: October 8,1983
N - Number of siblings: 3, 1 brother and 2 sisters, all older
O - Oranges or apples: Oranges, best of all Clementine Tangerines
P - Phobias or fears: stairs, which is why I never ran for Miss America. Who can walk down those stairs in a swimsuit and heels without a bannister? and heights.
Q - Favorite quote: Jeremiah 29:11 "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" NIV I'm holding hard to this one right now.
R - Reason to smile: Boo Mama, who I am missing dearly (please blog!), my middle child's rendition of Silent Night, sung sincerely in several different keys at once (how did this happen?) when I was having a particularly weepy day at work last week, I get to go home for a week at Christmas
S - Season: Fall, it's always such a beautiful relief from summer
T - Tag 3 or 4 people: Andrea at You Just Think I'm Normal, Erica at Seeking Perfect Peace (who has yet to blog, the dirty lurker!), and anyone else who hasn't done this one yet.
U - Unknown fact about me: My guilty listening pleasures are Prince and Janet Jackson
V - Vegetable you don't like: Where to begin? I've never asked for a big plate of any vegetable other than maybe Asparagus, since potatoes don't count as a vegetable. My MOST HATED is broccoli. X-P
W - Worst habit: procrastination. I love a crazy deadline and the adrenaline rush of pulling it off at the last minute. It's pathological really.
X - X-rays: teeth in the last 5 years
Y - Your favorite food: Shrimp or Steak - I'm not a cheap date
Z - Zodiac sign: Leo - and I do seem to fit the profile, though how everyone born on that day could be the same is a mystery to me. I won't listen to or read a horoscope on religious principles at any rate.
