I haven't done one of these in ages, and have felt quite uninspired in the blogging department, so when Jen posted this "About Me" I thought I'd nick it.
Bed Size: King
Chore You Hate: All of them.
Dogs: Maus, a Japanese chin, who's about to pop his clogs.
Essential Start of Your Day: Prayer, run.
Favorite Color: purple
Gold or Silver: gold
Instruments You Play: Piano. I used to play descant recorder, treble recorder, and clarinet, but not anymore.
Job Title: Mum. The best title ever.
Kids: Emily - 20, Ben - 15, Andrew - 6
Mom's Name: Sandra
Nicknames: Don't really have any.
Overnight Hospital Stays: Penicillin reaction when I was a kid, baby deliveries, ovarian cyst. I think that's it.
Pet Peeve: I'm sure I have so many I can't think of any right now. Hmmm. One is when people use the wrong word their/there/they're, your/you're, its/it's. It REALLY irritates me that iphone *always* autocorrects to put in an apostrophe so I've been known to send texts with incorrect grammar and it drives me BANANAS ie "let's" instead of lets. Grrrr.
Quote From a Movie: You want only ONE movie quote? Uhhhh. Hmm. Because I read Jen's quote all I can think now is Napoleon Dynamite ones. =P
"You think anyone wants a roundhouse kick to the face when I'm wearing these bad boys? Fugeddaboutit."
"Take my arm. Other arm. MY other arm..."
"....the strength of a grizzly, the reflexes of a puma, the wisdom of a man..." =D =D
"I love technology, but not as much as you you see, but still I love technology..."
"Why you so sweaty?"
"I wish you'd get out of my life and shut up!" (My teen says that to me, tongue in cheek, occasionally.)
Right- or Left-Handed: Right
Siblings: 2 sisters; one older, one younger.
Time You Wake Up: 5.25am to take the teen to seminary.
Veggie You Dislike: Kale, turnip, jicama,
What Makes You Run Late: procrastination, and the fact that the 6yo has a physical inability to move at anything faster than snails pace. "Hurry up. HURRY UP! RUN! RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN!" yields no appreciable increase in speed.
X-Rays You Have Had: Dental, Ultra Sounds
Yummy food you make: Sweet rice pudding - a recipe I got from a Jewish cookbook way back when the 20 year old was a 5th grader. I love that stuff. Unfortunately, I'm the only one who does. *sigh*.
Zoo Animal You Like Best: Huh. Do they have manatees in zoos? If so, the manatee.
That was fun. =)
How about you? Copy and past this list to your blog and after you fill it out, leave a comment so I can come see. =)
