Sunday Time Waster on Monday

Here's a cute little meme I first viewed on Ticketaboo's website, and later on Kristyn's.  I like how this one goes from A to Z--it makes the questions a little more head-scratching-random.  I also like how it's called a "Sunday procrastination" meme, given that it's now Monday and I'm finally getting around to posting it.

A. Age: 32
B. Bed size: King.
C. Chore you dislike: Folding laundry and putting it away (as evidenced by the current heap on my bed).
D. Dogs: A corgi named Cricket, and a giant Newfoundland named Moses.
E. Essential start to your day: Listening to the news.  Hearing other people's voices in the morning is my "coffee"--it wakes me up almost instantly and convinces me that I'm not the only crazy person up at 0'dark-thirty (even if those voices are usually talking about violence and stuff).
F. Favorite Color:  This one's tough.  Yellow has been my favorite color my entire life (it's cheery and reminds me of sunshine), but lately I have found myself drawn to purple. Sorry Yellow, old friend.
G. Gold or silver: Any metal is fine, so long as it doesn't turn my skin green.
H. Height: 5’4”.
I. Instruments you play: None.
J. Job title: Language arts teacher.
K. Kids: Two; a ten-year-old daughter and a seven-year-old son.
L. Live: Yes, I live (these really need to be more specific).
M. Mum’s name: Mum?  How cute!  My mum's name is a simile for "one cent."
N. Nicknames: Jo, Jojo, Fluff
O. Overnight Hospital Stays: Two.  They correlate rather nicely with the above "kids" question.
P. Pet peeves: Helicopter-parenting, lousy listeners, people who think "wife and mother" is a job-title.
Q. Quote(s) from a movie: "What's the matter Colonel Sanders....Chicken?"  (Spaceballs).
R. Righty or lefty: Righty.
S. Siblings: One twin sister and one half-sister.
T. Time you wake up: 6:00 a.m. on weekdays, whenever on weekends. 
U. Underwear: Sometimes.  ;-)
V. Vegetables you don’t like: Cooked carrots and lima beans.
W. What makes you run late: Listening to music, because I keep interrupting the "getting ready" process to rock out with my hairbrush and/or curling iron.
X. X-rays you’ve had: One when I was six years old (fractured wrist).
Y. Yummy food you make: Anything from a box or can.  Oh, I can also make French toast and over-medium eggs.
Z. Zoo animal favorites:  Anteaters (I just wanted to bring the list back to "A" again, but anteaters really are kind of cute).
