A: Accent --
American, Californian, San Franciscan (don't want anyone to think I used
Valley Girl speak, which people often connect with California accents.)
B: Breakfast --
I eat a full breakfast, but it varies from day to day. Today I had
scrambled egg wrapped in a tortilla, and yogurt. Yesterday I had a
waffle. The day before cereal and toast. etc. Whatever
mood strikes me and we have food for.
C: Chore you hate --
All of them? Mostly cleaning the bathroom (which Walt does), and
folding laundry, which I leave until I can't pile things any higher.
SmellyAnn for the graphic!
D: Dad's name -- Albert
E: Essential everyday item --
Hmmm. Probably iPad and Kindle. I can live without my cell
F: Flavor ice cream --
I generally choose something with a vanilla base and either something
crunchy or chocolate-y in it. But sometimes a fresh fruit flavor.
G: Gold or silver --
Kind of a toss up, but I think I prefer gold
H: Hometown --
San Francisco, and proud of it. I have been fortunate to travel many
places in the world, but San Francisco is still my favorite city.
I: Insomnia --
My nightly companion, though lately I seem to be able to get back to sleep
better. I have found a Jane Austen based movie is a great soporific.
J: Job title --
K: Kids --
Jeri and Ned pushing 50, Tom approaching it gently, Paul and David, 30 and
24, respectively, forever. :(
M: Mother's birthplace --
N: Number of significant others --
Do I need more than one?
O: Overnight hospital stays --
Six. One for tonsils, at age 5, and one for each of my childbirths.
P: Phobia --
Only semi trucks along side me on the freeway.
Q: Quick at --
TV remote control
R: Religious affiliation --
Recovering Catholic, no other formal affiliation, though I guess if I had to
put one on a hospital form it would still be Catholic.
S: Siblings --
One. Died 1971. Murdered by her partner.
T: Time you wake up --
3 a.m., and then, if I'm lucky 7 a.m. or later.
U: Unnatural hair colors --
I have never colored my hair since the 1970s, when I discovered that I was
NOT going to be auburn-headed like Maureen O'Hara, but the coloring gave me
a metallic purplish red tint.
V: Vegetable you refuse to eat --
W: Worst habit --
X: X-rays --
A few, not many. I think last one was for my back pain ("some
deterioration" was the diagnosis)
Y: Yummy --
Chocolate, of course.
Z: Zodiac sign --
With a good sense of humor, the Aquarius-born love to share a joke and
lighten the atmosphere wherever they go. What
appeals to them a lot are humanitarian activities. They try their best to do
whatever is possible to make the world a better place to live in. The
Aquarius-born people are intelligent and always look for intellectual
stimulation. They are known for their wide-ranging interests. They are so
popular because they are loyal to their friends and loved ones.
Although they are good listeners, it is very difficult to make the
Aquarius-born change their pattern of thinking.
(They also tend to be disorganized and messy!)
