It’s that time of the year (month) again! Time for Old School Blogging with the fabulous Elaine of The Miss-Elaine-ous Life and her sidekick this month; the one, the only, the funny and fantastic Andrea of About 100%. I call both of these women good, good friends of mine…mostly because they give good hugs and make me laugh. (perhaps they have nice things to say about me too. Fingers crossed!)
THE ABCs of ME:
A- Age: 45 (Fabulous, most days)
B- Biggest Fear: Losing another person I love. (I’d write a bit more but then this blog will be all wet with tears.) I’m also afraid of never being enough. I think next to an unexpected loss the thing I fear most is being mediocre my whole life. (And snakes, always snakes. Ewww)
C- Current Time: 10:00 Am on Tuesday morning.
D- Drink you last had: Diet Caffeine Free Coke. (ahhh, my precious….)
E- Easiest Person To Talk to: Myself. (Obviously. I always agree!) My Mom (sometimes). John; when laughing. Morgan and Lisa for everything else. I don’t have to be anyone else with my besties.
F- Favorite Song: Trick question! But Silly Love Songs, Sister Golden Hair and 32 Flavors are three that make me smile through tears. (But lately I love the bands Arctic Monkeys (LOVE!) , Florence and the Machine and Fitz and the Tantrums)
G- Grossest Memory: Recently, our doggie Fenton had a diarrhea accident on our bedroom carpet and it was not fun to clean up. At all. (poor puppy!)
H- Hometown: Carbondale, PA. (It’s tiny but on most modern maps and GPS systems. Even Waze knows where it is, so there!)
I- In love with: My sons, my husband and the summer. I love being barefoot and warm (not hot and sweaty mind you, but warm and suntanned. Kind of like a baked potato.) I also love shoes from Payless, dresses from NY&CO, Law & Order Marathons and my mom. (Who just moved into their house in Georgia. OMG!)
J- Jealous Of: I’m trying NOT to be jealous as of late. I don’t like myself very much when I’m comparing myself to other more fantastic people. (But let’s be honest…I’m really jealous of any woman who has kissed Pierce Brosnan or Robert Downey Jr. Lucky bitches!)
K- Killed Someone? does writing it count? Then YES! (cue Vincent Price laughter)
L- Longest Relationship: Me and my mom; 45 years and still going strong.
Next up my sister, best friends Denise (43 years) and Lisa (21 years) and then of course John, together 14 years.
M- Middle Name: Anne (with an E )
N- Number of Siblings: This one is going to hurt. I have a baby sister Dana (43) and a baby brother in heaven Benjamin (forever young at 34, he’d be 36 now.) I have step siblings who are my family now too. Michelle, Dan and Geoff.
O- One Wish: Oh, like I’m going to tell you. HA! (I’d love a happy, peaceful life.)
P- Person who you last called: My mom (see the pattern?)
Q- Question you’re always asked: “Where did you get your shoes? “
R- Reason to smile: It’s still warm enough for bare legs, dresses and bare feet.
S- Song you last sang: “Delilah” by Florence and the Machine.
T- Time you woke up: 5 am, to the early news.
U- Underwear Color: Black and white polka dots cause I’m classy like that.
V- Vacation Destination: We just got back from Ft. Myers, Florida and it was gorgeous but I’m missing Aruba. I’d love to take the boys there.
W- Worst Habit: Over thinking everything and I must say “I’m sorry” about 100 times a day for things I didn’t even do.
X- X-rays you’ve had: teeth, lungs, ovaries
Y- Your favorite food: (Old Forge) Pizza.
Z- Zodiac Sign: Aquarius. I love being an Aquarian, our symbol is the water bearer but we are in fact an AIR sign ; spirits of the air, creative, emotional and willing to fly. I choose to believe we are friendliest, most spirited and best sign of the zodiac. *wink*
And for your viewing pleasure….Tom and Cuba Jr : ” these are the ABCs of me baby!”
