I was perusing this blog yesterday: Two Adults, One Brown Baby. I happen to enjoy this blog quite a bit, and I enjoyed even more the fact that she urged us to copy her post. That’s almost like plagiarism! Fun! So I present to you an alphabetized account of my entire being.
A to Z by Jeanette Nyberg
A. Age: My earth age is 41
B. Bed size: Queen, but I wish we had a King because I’m a rowdy little minx in the sack.
C. Chore that you hate: Being polite to people. That or dishes.
D. Dogs: I find dogs to be one of the most lovely species in the world. Until they fart, and then it’s GAME OVER.
E. Essential start to your day: Copious amounts of iced green tea.
F. Favorite color: Grey. But If I were to be completely honest, I’d be annoying and tell you that I don’t like one single color, I like what colors do when they work together: pink and burgundy, dark and light blue, yellow and grey, yumyumyum.
G. Gold or silver: Silver. Gold seems to have the effect of making me look like a corpse.
H. Height: 5’6″
I. Instruments that you play: Sometimes I crack my big toe bones.
J. Job title: Slug puppet. (Can I just say how much I hate the title “Stay at Home Mom”?)
K. Kids: Fen (9), Beckett (2), Erik (13 stepson), Annie (15 stepdaughter)
L. Live: Outside ‘o’ Chicago
M. Mother’s name: Margaret McKinley Brabston Hoffower
N. Nicknames: Not really. I tend to be the nicknamer in my house, and I’m really annoying about it, so I think everyone calls me by my real name as a desperate plea for me to stop calling them stupid things.
O. Overnight hospital stays: 2003 for Fen and 2009 for Bex. Both c-sections. Both breech because of my wonky uterus. Hospitals are torturous places to try to be avoided at all cost.
P. Pet peeves: Anyone who gets in my way when I’m just trying to be fabulous.
Q. Quote from a movie: Stupid, stupid rain. My sister and I enjoy saying this to each other in our best British accents. Look how young Hugh Grant looks.
R: Right or left handed: Right except when I shoot pool and deal cards.
S: Siblings: One sister who is 3 years older than I and lives 10 miles away only. Squish.
T. T mysteriously disappeared somewhere along the way, so I’ll add one for T: turnip.
U. Underwear: Yes, please
V. Vegetable(s) you hate: Button mushrooms can promptly go to hell.
W. What makes you run late: Kids because they like to try to slowly kill you with dawdling
X. X-rays you’ve had: My teeth and I think that’s all. But I think x-rays are so so cool.
Y. Yummy food that you make: Turkey burgers
Z. Zoo animal: gir-damn-affes. They are the best.
