I nicked this from the blog of the fabulous Katy Upperman
A is for age: 33. Which is astounding since my mom is only “21” and my grandmother “39.”
B is for breakfast today: Poptarts. I think I singlehandedly keep this company in business.
C is for currently craving: For it to be hours later so all my errands will be done
D is for dinner tonight: Dunno yet. Hopefully something easy and quick since it’s Friday and I don’t feel like cooking
E is for favorite type of exercise: Kickboxing
F is for an irrational fear: Being trapped (in an elevator, an avalanche, a traffic jam, etc)
G is for gross food: Lettuce. Worst food ever.
H is for hometown: Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Helltown, to be specific. Yes, my hometown actually used to be known as that. A high-five if you can tell me the current name.
I is for something important: My hubs
J is for current favorite jam: I’ve seen this answered as food and music, so I’ll do both. I’m not a big fan of fruit, but I do like orange marmalade (Paddington Bear, in the house!)
As for music, I woke up with a song stuck in my head; I’ll paste vid at the end of this survey – oh, the anticipation to know what it is!
K is for kids: None
L is for current location: Living room
M is for the most recent way you spent money: Bills
N is for something you need: Water
O is for occupation: I do computer “stuff” for my day job and writing as my “other” job
P is for pet peeve: Getting in my car after I let someone borrow it and there is no gas. Basically anything like that – eating or drinking the last of something and putting the empty box/container back on the shelf; using all the toilet paper and not grabbing a new roll…
Q is for a quote: This is my go-to “But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward.” –Rocky Balboa
But I sent this one to a friend yesterday, so I’ll include it, too:
“Everyone has talent. What’s rare is the courage to follow it to the dark places where it leads.” –Erica Jong
R is for random fact about you: I listen to REO Speedwagon when I clean my house
S is for favorite healthy snack: I think my body would rebel if I attempted to eat healthy. But I do like popcorn with just salt (no butter or anything). And pretzels are cool, too.
T is for favorite treat: I love anything salty (well, like chips, not like a salt lick, although I’m not opposed to trying that)
U is for something that makes you unique: I have crazy vivid dreams, emphasis on crazy.
In my dream world:
Badgers talk (but only to admonish the angry bears chasing me)
I perform variety shows at my high school with the Portland Trail Blazers (note: I’ve never been to Oregon and am not even really a basketball fan)
Betty White springs out of nowhere with a knife to save me from a snake (that randomly showed up while I was shopping for books and beaded curtains in a grocery store turned thrift store).
V is for favorite vegetable: Spinach. Or green beans. While I dislike fruit, I love most vegetables.
W is for today’s workout: Does getting out of bed count?
X is for X-rays you’ve had: Teeth, arm, back, lungs
Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Um…I shouldn’t have to think this hard about something, but I’m not a morning person. I randomly heard 4 Non Blondes “What’s Up” and it reminded me of the 90s, which was cool.
Z is for your time zone: Eastern
