ABC Meme

The Internet is just a world passing around
notes in a classroom. ~Jon Stewart

Ok, it's Monday and my brain is menopause fuzzy-mode, so I'm taking Cammy and Rebecca up on their Über-tag to do the ABC meme.

A is for age: 51, just barely.

B is for booze of choice: A margarita on the rocks with salt, thank you.

C is for career: Various postitions in the non-profit world: PR, membership, marketing. What can I say - I like working for a cause.

D is for your dog’s name: Jenna, our 100-pound lab-mix grand-dog (no grand-kids as of yet!)

E is for essential items you use/love everyday: Coffee pot, computer, sewing machine (a 1960’s Singer), my car and its CD player

F is for favorite song(s) at the moment: Hooray for Love, an oldie by Johnny Mercer (Listen)

G is for favorite games: Smart Ass (sort of a Trivial Pursuit game); Balderdash.

H is for hometown: Salt Lake City, Utah.

I is for instruments you play: Guitar; a veeery tiny amount of piano.

J is for jam or jelly you like: Strawberry

K is for kids: Four step-children. How blessed am I!

L is for last kiss: This morning.

M is for most admired trait: Kindness.

N is for name of your first crush: John Cowsill of the Cowsills (remember them?) As for a real guy, his name was Parley…

O is for overnight hospital stays: Three: one for tests when I was in 8th grade; the second in high school, to remove a cyst; the third when I was 19, knee surgery. Funny, now that I’m a semi-old fart, I haven’t needed to be admitted over-night!

P is for phobias: The feeling of falling (no thank you to roller coasters, etc.!)

Q is for quotes you like: It’s never too late to be what you might have been. ~ George Eliot.

R is for biggest regret: Not giving birth to a child of my own.

S is for sweets of your choice: Crème Brulee; Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups.

T is for time you wake up: Between 6:00 and 7:00 AM

U is for underwear: Yes, please.

V is for vegetables you love: Broccoli; fresh tomatoes

W is for worst habit: Snacking too much and too often

X is for x-rays you’ve had: Mammogram every year; knee, chest…

Y is for yummy food you make: I’m told I make the best tuna sandwhich around!

Z is for zodiac sign: I'm a Aries. Aries Greatest Strength: Your courage to overcome fear. Aries Possible Weakness: Not finishing things you start. Yep – that’s me!

If you haven't yet done this meme and need something to blog about, consider yourself tagged!

Until next time...

I LOVE this!! I'm going to try to fit it in this week.

Thank you so much for the wonderful advice and you are right on target, I've spent most of the day researching calorie cycling so I could figure out how to mix it up and thats exactly what I plan on doing. Now hearing YOU say it, I'm doubly convinced this is exactly what I need!

You are such an interesting person! I loved your answers...

About your regret, I have heard a few people say that, but I have never heard any woman say that she regretted having children.

Thanks for sharing yourself so genererously, Pattie!

Loved reading your answers!
