Now I've Sung My ABCs

"Dreams are at once fruit & outcry against an atrophy of the senses." - Jim Morrison

In the hope that I will have more time to write this morning by doing a couple memes, I swiped these from Allie's post yesterday (don't forget to check her post today -- it's "Writer Wednesday" at her place):

You Are A Fun Friend

You're the one who keeps your group laughing
And you've always got an idea for something fun to do
The party's not complete without you
And you wouldn't miss it for the world

This is not really right, IMHO... But, hey, no one claimed these quizzes were scientific, right?

And next, it's time for: A, B, C, D, E, F . . .

Play along now!

A - Age: Just turned 40... Yikes!

B - Band listening to right now: None. I don't listen to music when I write. But I have this urge to listen to some old Styx music because I heard "Too Much Time on my Hands" at a store yesterday.

C - Career future: Best-selling author, of course

D - Dad's name: Manuel Joseph

E - Easiest person to talk to: My mom

F - Favorite song: Too many to choose from, and it really depends on the day.

G - Gummy Bears or Gummy Worms: Neither... give me sour patch kids any day.

H - Hometown: Sacramento, CA.

I - Instruments: I used to play the flute.

J - Job: Too many to list: Accountant, housekeeper, chef, errand-runner, chauffeur, teacher... okay, did you guess it? I'm a stay-at-home mom!

K - Kids: One with two legs, and two with four legs. (Does that sound oddly like the riddle of the sphinx?)

L - Longest car ride ever: Colorado to New Hampshire. Twice. Both times when I was pregnant - Once when I was 4 months and once when I was 7 1/2 months! What was I thinking (aside from "where's the nearest bathroom?")??

M - Mom's name: Janellen

N - Number of people you slept with: Last night, right? 1 people, 2 furballs.

P - Phobia[s]: Heights

Q - Quote: Too many to choose from,though I do like two from "The Empire Strikes Back" -- "Do, or do not. There is no try." and when Yoda brings the fighter out of the swamp using the force Luke exclaims, "I don't believe it!" Yoda replies, "That is why you fail."

R - Reason to smile: My daughter.

S - Song you sang last: "We Go Together" from Grease. I woke up with it in my head, and I have no idea why...

T - Time you wake up: 4:00 a.m. -- usually without an alarm, but the time change has me messed up.

U - Unknown fact about me: When I was younger, I lived for a couple years with no electricity, running water or telephone -- we had an outhouse, lived in a tent for awhile, and I was as happy as I've ever been.

V - Vegetable you hate: Lima beans. Ugh. Actually, I think that's a legume officially, but they sell the canned ones in the veggie aisle, so it counts, right?

W - Worst habit: Picking my nose. No, seriously... I suppose it would be ... huh... I have too many to choose from (not including nose picking, I promise).

X - X-rays you've had: I broke my wrist when I fell off my pony in fourth grade. As an aside: Why are four and fourth spelled with the "u" and forty isn't? This is something that has plagued me my whole adult life.

Y - Yummy food: I'm torn between extra, extra dark chocolate anything and pizza.

Z - Zodiac sign: Capricorn.

Hey...I love your "unknown fact". Very cool :)

Judy said...

I'm with Allie... your unknown fact is super! And... why haven't we seen this in a story, that's what I want to know!

I'm going to steal the ABC meme for tomorrow. I did 3WW today... and with a scene from Fiona. I'm trying ;-)

Great idea for a meme - I borrowed it yesterday for my Friday slack-off!
