A Meme...Because I Don't Have Anything Else

I have a million things going on right now but I'm 21 days past due on my period and I'm a cranky, lazy, worn-out lump with no idea what to write.

So, I stole this from the lovely Maria at just-eat-you-cupcake. Thanks for the inspiration, dearie!

The Alphabet Meme.

A is for your age:


B is for your burger of choice:

I really LOVE a juicy bacon cheeseburger with ketchup and some red onion on a whole wheat wrap. I don't like all the bread from a roll and discovered that wraps are great with burgers!

C is for the car that you drive:

A black Mazda MPV minivan. I swore I would never own a minivan. Now that I have one, I love it. It's comfy and it has a DVD player, a total must if you want quiet when you drive with 3 kids!

D is for dog's name:

Ruby. She is a one year old Cavachon, which means she is half Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and half Bichon Frise. She is one of those "designer dogs" which basically means she is a mutt that they charged me too damn much for.

E is for an essential item you use each day:

My computer. I swear I'd be lost without it.

F is for your favorite television show:

I'm with Maria on this one. LOST is awesome. I only began watching the show a few months ago....thank heaven for Netflix. Now I'm all caught up and itching for the new season to start already!

G is for favorite game:

I love playing Uno with the kids. It's easy enough for everyone in the family. I like that it's a card game because it's quick and portable.

H is for hometown:

Rumson, NJ - But don't think I came from money, because believe it or not there are poor people that live there too. My dad was one of the town garbage men....he picked up Bruce Springsteen's trash, so there!

I is for instruments played:

Nothing. There is not one musical bone in my body.

J is for favorite juice:

I'm not much of a juice person. I like an occasional orange juice with breakfast.

K is for what you'd like to kick:

My treadmill. Every day it glares at me because I haven't been on it in a while. Listen, I'm late, I'm bloated, I have no energy, leave me alone.

L is for last restaurant you dined at:

The Sitting Duck. A quaint, little family place that is always hopping. It's got great food and it's noisy enough that I don't spend the whole meal telling the kids to keep it down.

M is for your favorite muppet:

The Swedish Chef. My grandparents were born in Sweden and I remember always laughing at the Chef's accent when I was younger because it sounded just like my grandmother's!

N is for number of piercings you have:

I have 5; 3 in my left ear and 2 in my right. I had my ears originally pierced when I was in 6th grade at the local mall. When I was in high school I numbed my ear with an ice cube and pierced the other three holes with a needle that I "sterilized" over a flame from a Bic lighter. I know, dumb ass.

O is for overnight hospital stays:

4. One time for each of my babies and once for removal of my gall bladder.

P is for people you were with today:

My family.

Q is for what you do in quiet times:

Blog. Color with the kids. Cuddle and watch tv with my hubby.

R is for regrets:

I regret not moving into my own place when I was in my early twenties. I would have loved to have tried it on my own for a while. I also regret not going to art school or computer art school.

S is for status:

Happily married since 1992 to my best friend. We met when I was about 16. We were just friends until we were 22. He dated my friends, I dated his. It's actually quite a funny story.

T is for time you woke up today:

I first woke up at 4:45 to pee. Then let Ruby out. I was wide awake so went on the computer for about an hour. Then I went back to bed until about 8:15.

U is for what you consider unique:

Each of my children's personalities.

V is for favorite vegetable:

I'm not much of a veggie person, I really wish I was. I've tried, but I I do like corn on the cob and cauliflower. I also like raw salad vegetables; Romaine, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, etc.

W is for your worst habit:

Yelling. Yes, I'm a yeller. I hate that I's the way I was raised, but I'm trying to break that.

X is for x-rays you have had:

Just one, my middle finger. No, I'm not lying. The palm side of my middle finger right where it meets my hand. I had a hard ball there that was hurting SO badly.

Y is for yummy food you ate today:

See B.

Z is for zodiac sign:

I am a Taurus. TOTALLY ME.

Zephra said...

Anonymous said...

Laura said...

Cool - what a great way to get to ow you better!

Maria said...

I had the same thought as Zephra...

And yeah...LOST. God, I think Sawyer is about the best bad boy around. I can hardly stand the moist eyed, soulful Jack. He almost nauseates me.

Mrs. Schmitty said...

Zephra and concerns, that's just my messed up system. And btw, in case you were wondering, it's 2:25 am and I'm up with vicious cramps on day 25.

I love a meme. I like to learn something new about people and I love to fill them out. I may have to do this one sometime.

I apologise, but, in my opinion, you are not right. I am assured. I can prove it. Write to me in PM, we will talk.
