Random Tuesday Get-to-Know-Me, Pass-Along Fun

I saw this over at Faye's blog and thought it would be a fun quiz to pass along on Random Tuesday (and, besides, I haven't done one like this in a while).

I guess it's like an A-B-C of Me...

A - Age: 40
B - Bed size: Queen

C - Chore you hate: Cleaning the bathtub
D - Dog's name: No dog (I know it's like un-American, but I don't like dogs!), but we do have cats (Midnight, Socks, and Chit Chat Chatter Cat)

E - Essential start your day item: Glass of sweet tea and a rousing "Get up, Cheryl. It's getting late" from Gary.
F - Favorite color: Yellow!
G - Gold or Silver: Silver
H - Height: 5'3"

I - Instruments you play(ed): I wish! (I did play the clarinet for one year in junior high. I was so bad, though. that I dropped Band and took Wood Shop the next year. True story!)
J - Job title: Writer, Mom (chauffer, chef, etc.)
K - Kid(s): McKenna (17),Delaney (almost 13--and she reminds me everyday!), Sydney/Scout (5)
L - Living arrangements: Not sure what that means...married with kids (or in a split-level from the 80s!)
M - Mom's name: Joanne
N - Nicknames: You know, I've never had a nickname (unless you count Sloan--my maiden name--because one of my college roommates was named Cheryl also and we had to have "code names" so we weren't confused). I think I need a nickname...what could it be?

O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: Nope, just the three kiddoes.
P - Pet Peeve: Slow people, negative people, intolerant people, and (the big one) people who like to blame others for their problems. (And, well, anything that involves someone trying to force me to eat mayonnaise or go somewhere that involves heights!)
Q - Quote from a movie: So many good ones..."I gave her my heart; she gave me a pen," "I've got a bad feeling about this," "It's almost time for the Easter bunny!" "It's only a flesh wound," "Hi, I am barren." (Extra points if you know where they came from!)

R - Right or left handed: Right
S - Siblings: One younger brother (Christopher)

T - Time you wake up: As late as I can get away with (on school days, about 6:45)
U- Underwear: Yep.
V - Vegetable you dislike: I honestly can't think of one I dislike too much.
W - Ways you drink your coffee: Filled with cream, milk, anything chocolatey (to, basically, get rid of most of the coffee taste).
X-rays you've had: Of my back, just this past Fall.
Y - Yummy food you make: Sweet things are my specialty (although I'm pretty good at Mexican too!).

Z - Zoo favorite : Any of the big cats.

Well, that was fun. Join in if you'd like...post your answers (or some of your answers, since it's so long) here in my comments section. Or post on your own blog (and let us know you did it, so we can come visit!).

Have a most excellent Tuesday (I plan on doing so! I'm about to go on a thrift store book-hunting extravaganza, with something good to eat mixed in.)

See ya soon!

Oh, I love this!

My favorites are the clarinet story and your job title.

I know that Star Wars quote. Not sure about the rst of them

Auburn Kat said...

I love your answer to the underwear question! =)

Cheryl Wray said...

Lynilu--I love that!! :-)

Crazy--Not a coffee drinker here (unless--as you see from my later answer--it's something like a frappucino). But sweet tea absolutely does it for me in the a.m.!

Carla--Glad you stopped by! I love to meet new bloggy friends too (and you can absolutely add me!).

Cheryl Wray said...

Kathy said...

I absolutely enjoy reading these lists.

LOVE the name of your cat! Chit Chat Chatter Cat! SO FUN!

The big kitties at the zoo are my favorite too! Do you think they will let me snuggle them like my kitties at home do? NO? Drats!

Fresh Mommy said...

Cheryl Wray said...

Ed--I am having a WONDERFUL week...thank you!

Steph--Otra Mommy. I LOVE it!!!

Hippo--LOl I went and read yours...it was great!

Kathy--Well, we call him Chit Chat now. He's gotten quiet in his old age, but when he was a newborn kittie he was SO loud that it was the perfect name!

Tabitha--I LOVE Mexican food. Come on over! :-)
