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!
