One of my MFP pals and blog readers (what up, Lyndsey!) left this in my comments a week or so back and tagged me to do it, so bring it on!
A – Age: 4,000,032 MINUS 4,000,000… it’s Mondee… math problems keep the brain afloat in the brain juices.
B – Booze… what I need on a Mondee morning. KIDDING… Bedtime… I don’t sleep much at night… usually around 4 to 5ish in the morning…
C – CHOCOLATE! As if there would be another C word I’d use. I tried to give you up once, chocolate… NEVER AGAIN! Not a huge fan of dark chocolate, but milk chocolate… killing me softly with your love!! 😛
D – Drums… I always wanted to learn how to play the drums. When I was a kid I was a pretty great air drummer…
E – Ears… I have this stupid addiction to Q-tips and cleaning out my ears, which used to cause me much grief when they’d swell shut. I still use Q-tips, but I’ve been a bit more lucky in the infection department….
F – Friday Night Lights and Forty-Eight Hours: Mystery… two of my most favoritest shows, even if 48 Hours causes major lameness-alert nightmares!
G – Gum… my favorite go-to gum is either Extra Spearmint or Orbit Sweet Mint!
H – Hair… My hair used to be really thick, but after 2 major weight loss efforts, it is very thin and fine! I’m jealous of those who have luxurious thick hair!
I – Ice cream… I am lactose intolerant, but I still have to have me an occasional slab of ice cream… Rocky Road, Caramel Cashew, and Lemon Custard are my favs!
J – Jokes… I’m always up for a good joke… though, mine are always really cheesy and unfunny! At least I don’t take after my mom who starts a big ole long joke only to forget the punchline 5 minutes later!
K – Kidding… probably my most used word. Sarcasm plus people who might not get my sarcasm equals using that word a lot! Plus, you can say something semi rude and it won’t be rude as long as you are following it up with KIDDING! KIDDING… I don’t do that… that’s just rude!
L – Lyn… my middle name, after my dad’s dad who died when he was 8 or 9.
M – Mr. Rogers… LOVED that man and his sweater-zipping, shoe-tying, fish-feeding, cheese-spreading self!
N – Nature… I try to spend as much time out of doors as possible in the summer. I love my summer nights of sitting in my camp chair out on the lawn and just taking it in… love my walks out of doors… love my mountains, trees, flowers, etc.
O – Oprah… y’all, my good pal, Oprah only has 3 shows left… THREE!!! Where am I going to get my overly excited women viewing in when she is gone?! I have been hoarding her shows on the DVR and can’t seem to erase the suckers…
P – Pets… one cat who I’ve had since I was 11. I’ve killed my fair share of goldfish (not on purpose! Personally, I think they all died of major boredom… you try swimming around a clear glass bowl 24/7!). Also, lost my fair share of cats… by lost I really mean that the parents would put them in the car, drive them up the canyon, and drop them off… and then tell my sister and I that they had run away. As if I was a gullible guppy! Snowball… COME HOME!
Q – Quilt… one day I want to embroider the squares for a quilt and make it… I said one day… not today!
R – Read… something I wish I did more of… my all time favorite author since I was a little girl is Lucy Maud Montgomery… what up Avonlears!
S – Singing… one of my favorite hobbies. In college, I was a member of a 12-person Jazz choir, 6 boys and 6 girls broken up into 12 parts… one of the highlights of Jazz choir days was singing the National Anthem at a Utah Jazz basketball game. The least favorite part of being in said Jazz choir… the scatting practice we had to do alone in front of the whole class at least once a week. I am and was a horrible scatter! I need words and notes!!
T – Tall… 5’8-1/2″… I’ve always been tall and I’ve always hated it… especially being obese and tall… because then you’re like a giant in ALL regards… I will tower over you and then I will eat you! 😛
U – Utah… my state! Though, I was born and lived the first few year of my life in Idaho… NO, U da ho!
V – Varmints… the annoying, ugly, hideous, freaktastically bacteria ridden things that live in my window well!
W – Work… full-time medical transcription proofreader… I reread your mistakes so you don’t have to! aka… making doctors look good one correction at a time.
X – X-ray… the last one was probably when I broke my wrist at the age of 15… skiing. I wish it was some awesome story about how I was saving this group of kids from an avalanche and got my wrist stuck in the mouth of a mountain lion, but no… it wasn’t cool at all… I tripped over a dagnabbed log! I wasn’t even skiing!
Y – Yellow… one of my favorite colors because it reminds me of summer and lemons and sunshine and happy things… what’s sunshine? Y’all… someone needs to inform it that it hasn’t been in Utah yet this year.
Z – ZERO… the number of times I’ve been off the continent.
There it is… if y’all are mind numbingly bored, do this A to Z get to know you exercise yourselves. I’d love to read them and get to know y’all better… either in the comments or if you have a blog and then post a link in the comments!
Meanwhile… just a reminder that I’m going to be getting up a plan of action for myself for Mission: Uncage the Singing Bird in tomorrow’s post… so be thinking of your plan of action… be discrete… hire an architect, a lawyer, a psychotherapist, and a chef… (in case I get hungry). Hope y’all had a fabulous weekend and didn’t do anything I wouldn’t do (LOL… which is anything!)
