Monday MckLinkly: Know Me from A-Z

Yesterday I was offline most of the day except for when the iPod would pick up a weak signal. The laptop was in the cellar most of the day because you know the really important things go down there first.

Mrs. Sinclair gave us a cute (and easy!) MckLinky yesterday and since I'm online today I thought I'd go ahead and play along.

A - Age: 37

B - Bed size: Queen

C - Chore you hate: Cleaning the bathroom. My gosh, that is just a deplorable room.

D - Dog(s') name: Giblet. Yes, as in gravy. See, we had a dog named Biscuit so when we got a new dog we named him Gravy. Then Biscuit joined a wild band of coyotes and then we got a new dog and named him Giblet to go with Gravy. Now Gravy, too, has joined the coyote gang and we just sound like idiots when we holler for our dog named after bird innards.

E - Essential start your day item: Caffeine - usually coffee, sometimes sweet tea, today Mountain Dew because I needed it instantly and couldn't wait for anything to brew.

F - Favorite color: Blue

G - Gold or Silver or Platinum: I'm a white gold kind of girl.
H - Height: 5'2 1/4" - yes, I add the 1/4" because it is very important when you're this short.

I - Instruments you play(ed): I took piano lessons for ten years, was in the Band from 5th grade on and played the flute horribly before I moved on to percussion where I played bass drum, bells, chimes and anything else they needed beat on.

J - Job title: Homemaker Supreme

K - Kid(s): Two daughters, one son

L - Living arrangements: A house on 40 gorgeous acres of Oklahoma beauty.

M - Mom's name: Verna

N - Nicknames: Mom, Dear, Diva, Kiki, Aunt Kiki

O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: I was hospitalized a few times as a kid for ear infections (we had really good insurance and a doctor who liked money). Other than those, it's been in and out for me since aside from giving birth.

P - Pet Peeve: People who don't use their turn signal, people who think they are better than everyone and David Letterman

Q - Quote from a movie/show: "Next time I see that Bleeker kid I'm gonna punch him in the weiner." -- from the movie Juno

R - Right handed or left handed: Right

S - Siblings: One biological sister, three stepsisters and a stepbrother

T - Time you wake up: 5am during the week, usually by 7 on Saturday and 6:30 on Sunday.

U- Underwear: Yes.

V - Vegetable you dislike: Brussel sprouts and asparagus

W - Why you run late: My hair sometimes develops an attitude known best by those who also own naturally curly hair. It sometimes comes to life and refuses to cooperate.

X - X-rays you've had: Teeth.

Y - Yummy food you make: I am famous for my cake balls. Not many can say that.

Z - Zoo favorite: Giraffes

Now, even though it's Tuesday, link yours up, too!

I've never had cake balls but I have heard that they are heavenly!

Jennifer said...

Teeth xrays.. how could I have forgotten those also in my gigantic list?

Your cake balls have got to be da bomb. Because after you told me how to make them and I did... I threw everyone here at at the hospital into diabetic comas.

They said to tell you Thank You for the recipe. you now have a cake ball kingdom.

Dawn said...

I CRACKED UP that David Lettermen is a pet peeve!!! Hahahaha!! I can't stand him either.

And, I think we could just bring our four wheelers and ride on your land. LOL!

I recently started a niche directory for the state of OK. I spent my day today finding quality Oklahoma bloggers with whom to connect. As a courtesy, I have listed your blog here: http://localhoma.com/index.php?c=69. I enjoyed your blog and I look forward to reading more from you. :)
