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).


  1. Your movie quote made me giggle. Also, I'm glad to know you live, I was worried for a minute there. ~.^

  2. I don't know what a Newfoundland is, but I LOVE the name Moses.

    And you live in America. As I am sure you know. :)

    But you must expand on the Mum one - is you mum's name 'onepenny'?

  3. Well I'm glad that response cleared things up for you then, Kristyn. ;-)

    Ms. Tickatee, a Newfoundland is a slobbery giant beast of a dog that drools all over you and is an attention-whore. Oh, and they have webbed feet! They're really good swimmers. Perfect since we live in the middle of the desert. In America glad you reminded me. ;-) I posted a pic of my dog's big head on a past blog entry:

    And great detective skills; my mum's name is indeed "one penny"! Well, minus the 'one' part. She prefers just "Penny." Or better yet, "Mom".


Thanks for your comment!
