OK its Friday, I don’t have any great ideas to expound, or crazy stories to tell, so I’ll do this! Thanks to my friend Small Town Mom for the idea.
Age – 53, but really you’d think I was 73, at least my kids do, and my knees. Not that there is anything wrong with being 73, it’s just that I would like to have had the benefit of those 20 years of hard living before feeling the effects of it thank you very much.
Bed size – 1/2 of a Queen – sometimes all of it if I snore too much.
Chore you hate – Pulling weeds. See Age explanation above.
Dogs – Fur machines? The reason we own stock in lint rollers? The reason we can’t wear black? Two.
Essential start of your day – Listening to Mika Brzezinski on MSNBS’s Morning Joe. She is one smart cookie.
Favorite color – My first response is pink, but then I wonder, are you referring to clothes? Because I always gravitate to blue when I’m clothes shopping. But then I look in my closet and notice I don’t really have all that much blue. I should get more blue clothes.
Gold or silver – Silver. And do you know why? First of all, because it’s prettier than gold, and secondly, because you can buy silver costume jewelry and no one will know it’s not real. Try that with gold, you will be found out in a heartbeat, and judged. Why set yourself up for that?
Height – 5’4″
Instruments I play (or have played) – I own a piano. I took lessons from a toothless bearded hag (I kid you not) for 11 long years. I work for our local symphony. I even bought a Takamine guitar autographed by the Eagles. You’d think I would have a list as long as your arm of instruments I play or have played… but nope.
Job title – I have two. One is Administrative Assistant. The other is kind of nebulous. It might be Digital Marketing Website Proofreader Social Media Dude. Yeah, thats it.
Kids – No thanks, I have three already that are almost out of the house.
Live – in the thriving metropolis of Fargo-Moorhead. Ya shure yooo betcha.
Mom’s name – Helen
Nickname – Lala (duh), or since I work in an office that is 65% Lindas – A. I’m also known as Mom, or Chop, or, if as I do, you prefer the Cajun version: Le Morseau de Corchant.
Overnight hospital stays – The one where I had amnesia after hitting a car with my head, and the three where my take home prize was a tiny naked human.
Pet peeve – Ignorance, Arrogance, and lack of curiosity.
Quote from a movie – “Excuse me, excuse me, what does God need with a starship?” From admittedly the WORST Star Trek movie – The Final Frontier.
Right or left-handed – Right handed.
Siblings – Three. The-two-who-came-before, and then, my younger sister and I who make up The-two-younger-ones.
Time you wake up – 3 a.m. Not by choice mind you. Its these damn hot flashes. Oh, you mean for the day? 6.
Underwear – on anyone and everyone, at all times.
Vegetable you dislike – Beets.
What makes you run late – Waiting for other people. I am NEVER late accidentally. If I’m late, whatever I’m showing up for isn’t important to me, and I will assume the same of you if I have to wait for you.
X-rays you have had done – X-rays? Really? That’s the best X word you could come up with? What about Xmen, Xfiles, Xbox, Xrated? Whatever.
Yummy food you make – Chicken enchiladas with green sauce.
Zoo animal – Monkeys. Any kind of monkey. I could have been Jane Goodall, but then I would not be in a zoo socializin’ with my primate peeps, I’d be in the wilds of Africa, where they probably don’t have a zoo.
