ABCs of me (stolen from Alex)

**HEY GUYS - sorry I've been absentee this week - I've had a sick baby. :( But now that he's feeling better, and now that my computer is also less buggy :D, it's an evening to relax, take care of some grading and stuff ... but also to remind blogland that I'm still in here somewhere. So ... I've also been catching up with my blog *reading* and got the idea to make this entry a bit more than just a paragraph of 'I'm alive', from one of my friend Alex's entries - so thanks, girl, for this neat game. Since you've been sharing some of my surveys, I figured I could punk a great one of yours. :)


B. BED SIZE: Queen size

C. CHORE YOU HATE: Floors. Not a fan of sweeping or mopping. Changing garbages neither.

D. DOG'S NAME: No dog - but my former dog was named Holly, and my two current cats are Calvin and Lita.

E. ESSENTIAL "START THE DAY!" ITEM: Little Tyke's milk bottle.

F. FAVOURITE COLOUR: Blue or red, depending on shade, mood etc.

G. GOLD OR SILVER: Gold usually. But I'll go with Alex, white gold is pretty cool too.

H. HEIGHT: 4'11"

I. INSTRUMENTS YOU PLAY: I sing mostly, to the extent I'm musical; I can also very rudimentarily plunk a piano, and knew how to play clarinet once upon a time ...

J. JOB: All kids, all the time - mom and teacher. :)

K. KIDS: My one Little Tyke, with hopefully at least one more someday in the middle-future (not too far off, but not like, next week either).

L. LIVING ARRANGEMENTS: 3-bedroom townhouse with my hubby and the baby boy.

M. MOM'S NAME: Jean.

N. NICKNAME: Sar I guess is the main one; Princess used to be one as well.

O. OVERNIGHT HOSPITAL STAY: When I got my tonsils out, and several that ended up being overnight just from how late I stayed lol - but not intentionally overnight.

P. PET PEEVE: I think I have two - dishonesty is one (I REALLY value trust, and while I've come to accept some white lies of 'No that dress doesn't make you look fat' variety lol, not much beyond that is acceptable to me); also, immaturity. My other isn't so much one thing as a summary of a type of behaviour that would be best labeled 'Drama'. Deal with your problems up front, it's not high school gossiping, sending nasty notes, stewing about problems without discussing them, all Mean Girls-like, and don't take out your issue with other situations, people, or yourself, on those who you KNOW deep down are good people who are just trying to be there for you and haven't done anything THAT wrong. Whether you're 25 or 50, this is so unbecoming.

Q. QUOTE FROM A MOVIE: "I owe you nothing. And you are nothing to me. Thank you for curing me of my ridiculous obsession with love. " (Moulin Rouge)


S. SIBLINGS: I have one younger brother, Kyle, and a hopefully-future sister-in-law Dawn.

T. TIME YOU WAKE UP: 6am at the earliest, 8am if Little Tyke's let us sleep in

U. UNDERWEAR: Uh, comfortable mainly. lol


W. WAYS/REASONS YOU ARE LATE: Losing track of time. I'm awful at getting it into my head I only need 5 or 10 minutes or what have you to get somewhere, when really it's longer. Either that, or last minute ... um ... baby emergencies (feeding or diaper related lol).

X. XRAYS YOU'VE HAD: Teeth, ultrasounds, chest.

Y. YUMMY FOOD YOU MAKE: Shepherd's pie, and penne and sausage. Other stuff too but those are probably my signatures.

Z. ZOO ANIMALS YOU LIKE: I enjoy big cats, or petting zoo animals. I agree with Alex though, monkeys are cute because of how busy they are.
